Upstate New York is a beautiful destination all year round due to the lovely landscapes. The area attracts visitors through every season and there are endless opportunities for outdoor activities.

The property is close to many small family farms where guests can enjoy a visit with the farm animals, buy local produce, and learn about the landscape.National parks, forests, and mountain ranges such as the Catskills, the Berkshires, Taconic State Park, Mount Washington State Park, and Beebe Hill State Forest are excellent locations during warmer months for walking, hiking, mountaineering, mountain climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, and taking wildlife photos. Due to the close proximity to the Copake Lake and the Hudson River, water sports such as swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating, waterskiing, and fishing are popular pastimes in the area. This property is located near nine golf courses and driving ranges, so golf enthusiasts can choose from a wide selection of terrain that will suit their fancy. Glampers old and young can also enjoy a night of miniature golf at the many courses nearby.

Winter is just as popular among visitors as the summer because the surrounding ski resorts open their doors for the season. Downhill skiing and snowboarding are popular on the slopes, and cross-country skiing and riding snowmobiles are more common on the flatter terrain.

If guests wish to have a night on the town, the city of Albany is just an hour drive away, where guests can have a bite to eat or a drink at one of the many bars and restaurants, or they can see a concert at a music venue. Albany is also home to many museums and historical sights, so guests can take a tour around the city and learn about the local history.
