Getting to Know: Marbletown, NY
Marbletown has a long history - established in 1703 and settled sometime around 1669. It also is located in a scenic spot, with the Eastern Catskills and the Northern Shawangunks playing a significant role in the local scenery. As you might guess, Marbletown is rather hilly, and flowing among the town’s hills are the Esopus River in the northern part and the Rondout River in the Southeastern. The Rondout, in fact, comes to a smashing climax in nearby High Falls.
So if two rivers, two mountain chains, a waterfall, and more than 300 years of history aren’t enough to get you thinking about vacation rentals, what else does Marbletown offer? The town share borders with Rochester and New Paltz, so there are plenty of opportunities to eat, play, and explore. Locally there are farm stands, a museum devoted to canals, and historical sites.
Another reason the Marbletown area is a good spot for a vacation rental getaway is its position in relative to those two New York travel hubs: Albany and its airport is approximately 60 miles to the north, and New York City and its two airports are about 110 miles south. If you’d like to see the Hudson, it’s nine miles away, to the east in Kingston.
