About the area
The photo on my listing of the bench overlooking the reservoir is on the new Shavertown Trail, a mile from my property-as the crow flies. The put in for kayaks and canoes is there as well. The Palmer Hill trail and the Rail Trail are two other new trails in Andes, plus there's the Murphy Hill State Forest on the top of my mountain. You lookout upon the mountains of the forever wild Catskill Park, yet only 12 minutes from the delightful village of Andes with shops, restaurants & galleries. Several lakes for swimming, kayaking, & canoeing, plus a pool in the Village. Kayaks & canoes available for rental at Al's Sporting Goods in Downsville, they will also pick you up if you take a days paddle down the East Branch of the Delaware, which exits the reservoir at that point. The Beaverkill across the way is a world class fly fishing stream, the reservoir is noted for its brown trout. Two golf course, many theater & music events in the area including West Kortright Center, Roxbury Arts Group, Franklin Stage, Open Eye Theatre. Day trip Cooperstown for the Baseball Hall of Fame, Farmers Museum & Fenimore Cooper Museum, Glimmer Glass Opera, or to White Lake for the museum at the original Woodstock Festival site which also has concerts.
Buy locally grown produce, dairy, eggs, and meat at local farmers markets or directly from the farms. A number of small breweries and distilleries have opened in the region.
Take great hikes starting at the front door or throughout the Catskill Park which begins on the other side of the reservoir offering trails of varying degrees of difficulty. The quiet winding road that runs below my properties is a wonderful walk or run, and is a favorite for cyclists--it is 14 miles from my cabin to the end of the road in Downsville and you will only pass 7 homes along the way.
5 ski resorts in the general area as well snow tubing. Bring snowshoes & crampons for winter hiking the Catskill trails. Excellent cross country skiing on the Delhi Golf Course, and the Palmer Hill & Rail Trail in Andes.

I have a lot of information on the area at the Cabin. I can also send you information on the area (from kayaking to museums, hiking to performance centers, swimming to farmers markets.) If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Also, I am in the area, sometimes down the mountain on my adjoining property, should you have questions.
