WINTER IN THE HUDSON VALLEY!
Never is the fresh air of the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains is quite so crisp and clear as in Winter. Temps drop enough to provide great natural snow fall and ample opportunity to make snow. Woodland ponds freeze over to for ice skating in total solitude. Cross country skiiing abounds in the wooded areas around our B&B, and the best downhill skiing in the northeast is an hour away. Follow the Shawangunk Wine Trail to sip Hudson Valley wines made in the traditional way by local vinters, hike the snow covered mountains at Minnewaska State Park or Mohonk Preserve, or just watch the snow fall in our backyard while enjoying a warm beverage. After a day of hiking, skating or skiing, relax by the Farmhouse's fireplace and end the day with a great meal in a fabulous area restaurant.

HUDSON VALLEY WINERIES
The Shawangunk Wine Trail is nestled betweeen the famous Shawangunk Mountain range and the majestic Hudson River. The trail is composed of ten family-owned wineries from New Paltz in Ulster County to Warwick in Orange County, along with a dozen associate members dedicated to making the Hudson Valley a memorable experience for wine the lovers.
The ten wineries on the trail all follow the tradition of wine making established by the early French Huguenot settlers who brought their wine-making expertise to the valley over 300 years ago.
Every winery is different. Small to medium-sized, all roud of their well-crafted red and white wines that range from bone dry to dessert sweet. Tasters will find sparkling wines, vinifera, and French/American varietals and blends, and even some beautifully made sweet wines.
This young, thriving industry has recently become well known for its prize-winning wines across the nation.
Maps and times are available at Audrey's.
