Saugerties, New York is a village and town nestled between the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains that offers a wealth of attractions and fantastic real estate opportunities. One can find fine amenities, riverfront homes, gorgeous views of the mountains and charming architecture all in close proximity to the village.
Residents and visitors alike enjoy this charming and historic community that features popular festivals, horse shows, farmers markets, hiking, waterfront parks, ice skating and much more. It’s no wonder that Saugerties was named as one of the “Coolest Small Towns in America”.
Equestrians and horse enthusiasts are thrilled to have Horse Shows in the Sun (HITS) in Saugerties. These horse shows draw some of the top talent from around the country and take place throughout the warm weather months at a fabulous 200 acre equestrian facility.
In September, the major draw for Saugerties is the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival. Vendors and garlic lovers come from all over the country to sell and enjoy a wide variety of scrumptious garlic dishes, treats and products. It’s not uncommon to draw crowds of more than 50,000 to the two-day event that also features music and entertainment.
The Hudson River and Esopus Creek offer opportunities for sailing, fishing, boating, kayaking and picnicking. In addition, the majestic Saugerties Lighthouse sits on the Hudson and is a historical treasure that now serves as a popular bed and breakfast with a long waiting list.
For art enthusiasts, there are many galleries, theaters and of course, Opus 40–a one-of-a-kind bluestone outdoor sculpture with a picturesque view of the Catskills in the background.
