PHILLIPSPORT CHURCH HOUSE: These are a few of our favorite things... in and around the area...

Hikes / Nature
You have what will be your own private, easy, flat walk/hike just a few minutes walk from the church. The interpretive center has some of the best preserved parts of the old D&H Canal used in the 1800’s prior to the railroad. Coal barges were dragged by horses. Not easy, huh? You can walk from the church to the center (a state park) in about 10 minutes along Minister’s Flats Road and 209 for a couple hundred feet. The. You can walk the canal for miles, if you like. It’s extremely peaceful, relatively easy for most folks to walk along, with ever-changing scenery.

Our “private mountain”. We think of this hike as our own little secret. You can see the entire Hudson Valley/ Catskills/ Shawangunks Regiomontanus a clear day from the fire tower.

Some of the best views in the area, about 15 minutes up to Cragsmoor from the church. You walk out to the cliffs. The cliffs involve a little climbing and can be treacherous in places, so it’s not for everyone. Be careful!

Food scene
This super-hip little town cropped up about the same time we finished the church project. It’s received loads and loads of press: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/03/style/mountain-dale-new-york.html https://upstatehouse.com/mountaindale-a-town-reimagined/ A must to check out, as it’s a quick and beautiful 7 mile drive up the mountain. Eats/drinks: High Voltage Cafe (a must!) Delicious and inspired Polish comfort food, and we love the owners, Sonja and Jason. Were there once every weekend without fail. Ba and Me Awesome Vietnamese food by the hip publisher of the Hudson Valley’s DVEight magazine. The Dale Super cool new pizza and cider joint

So so so cute and fun. Sit outside, order a cider flight, and have some of the shockingly best pizza you can get outside of NYC (the owner is from Napoli).

Kingston is less than one hour from the church, and the largest “small city” in the Hudson Valley. A serious food/cafe/wine s/antiques/shopping scene has taken root. Favorites eats and drinks: Brunette - cutest wine bar, perhaps ever, located in the Rondout. Fabulous nibbles to accompany. Ask the lovely hosts/owners for their recommendations; they are always sourcing interesting new wines. Stockade - cocktail bar with serious cocktails in the historic Stockade district. Outdated Cafe - super cute cafe/ coffee shop with great antiques. Shopping Clove and Creek - super cute shop in the Rondout Hamilton and Adams - your source for all cool things upstate. In the Stockade.
