Rent a Vacation Home in Red Hook
Along the southern portion of the Hudson River, the town of Red Hook has a long recorded history, starting with the arrival of European settlers prior to 1690. The town has grown since then, and the Red Hook Chamber of Commerce is now also the voice for nearby villages of Milan and Tivoli as well as Red Hook itself.
Why consider a vacation rental in Red Hook? Aside from the obvious facts - the rolling scenery, the lush river valley, the apple orchards that dot the landscape - it also boasts a convenient location. A vacation rental that’s within half an hour of the Catskills, an hour to Albany, and two hours to New York? Check.
While red hook was primarily sustained by farming, fruit-growing, and raising dairy cattle, some of its residents did manage to build mansions and pass them along to their descendants. The western edge of Red Hook was the home of the “River Places” - twelve grand houses and estates that have mostly survived.
