Find Your Perfect Lakefront Getaway In the Greater Hudson Valley or Catskill Region of New York

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty

With the coming of Autumn the Greater Hudson Valley and Catskill Regions of New York will see the exit of the summer crowd and the entrance of the leaf peepers.  In truth, we have visitors here year round.  Anytime is a good time to visit us so plan a trip real soon.

It is a great time of year to think about buying a weekend and vacation spot right here.  We are close enough to New York City for a quick trip and have so many things to offer you in the ways of entertainment and relaxation.  Many people will put their 2nd homes on the market in the fall after the glow of summer has faded.  It makes for a wonderful opportunity for you to come on up and find the perfect get away for you.  

Lake front cabin Sullivan County NY


Many people venture up this way in search of a lake house.  Some very good friends of mine own a place on Shandelee Lake up in Sullivan County.  It is a place that has been in the husband's family since practically forever and they have worked hard to make it a great getaway while keeping the character of the cottage true to it's origin.  This website tells the story of this place so much better than I can so take a moment or two to read and enjoy the story of  Laurel Rest Cottage  Oh the memories and legacy these folks are making for their children and grandchildren.  Now there is no way this cottage is up for sale and I doubt it ever will be but there are many more available around here.

Some buyers may be looking for something newer and with more amenities.  We have those homes too.  We have old and new, move in ready, in need of major rehab, and everything in between.  We have motor boat lakes, non motor boat lakes, members only lake front communities, and private lakes for only the homeowners to enjoy.  The Greater Hudson Valley and Catskill Regions of New York have just the right spot for you.

If you would like to start a search for a vacation home or a permanent residence in the area I would love to help you.  Working with an experienced buyer's agent can help you to choose what is best for you.  I work in Orange, Ulster, or Sullivan County NY and I would love to be your Buyer's Agent. If you are looking elsewhere I would love to find someone in your chosen location to help you.  Give me a call or send an email today.

Paddy, what a beautiful house and a beautiful story.  You're absolutely right our area offers so many opportunities for people looking for second homes- especially in this market.

Hi Paddy,

Lovely setting and very nice cottage. Makes me a lil homesick. This was the first year without our summer house. We sold it last fall.

Hi Becky It is a beautiful story.  The market is great for people who are looking for 2nd homes right now.

Sorry I made you homesick Hal.

Yes Jennifer the beautiful leaves are a sign of winter.  Maybe the color is a gift to prepare us for the cold weather and snow.
