Ellenville Welcomes You (Maybe With Cookies)
Ellenville sounds like a cozy little hamlet, the sort of place where someoneís aunt welcomes visitors with a plate of fresh-baked cookies. Actually, Ellenville is more thriving town than tiny village - its population weighs in around 4,000 strong. From its position in Ulster County, Ellenville is centrally located; itís 2 hours to New York City and 90 minutes to Albany. Visitors who choose to fly in therefore can choose from three airports: JFK and LaGuardia in NYC or Albany International.
Ellenville is nothing if not eclectic; how many other towns draw visitors by advertising things as diverse as regional theatre, art classes, hang gliding, and a noted wine trail? If youíre looking for a spot for a group of friends with markedly different interests, consider a vacation rental in Ellenville. And with New York City a mere two hour drive away, this group could reasonably expect to do just about everything in one trip.
The Shawangunk Ridge is beloved of hang gliders and so vital to the landscape and the wine trail. For skiers, though, better-known sites are available; there are half a dozen within an hourís drive or so, including Belleayre Ski Center. No matter what your interests or vacation plans, try working in a stay at a vacation rental in Ellenville.
