Love hiking and nature? Are historic sites your favorite? We have so much to explore right here in the Hudson Valley!
So close by with free parking and admission! The lighthouse trail can be wet and isn’t very stroller friendly. It’s a short walk along the river and when you see the lighthouse, be sure to sit awhile on the large deck and take in the views. Kid and dog friendly, this is a lovely spot to pack a picnic and enjoy!

Welcome to our town!
Saugerties is a friendly place for dogs/kids/ families / couples and solo travelers! It’s easily walkable although some of our old bluestone sidewalks may have ridges, so watch your step. There’s so much to enjoy- our great shops and restaurants and all the natural beauty and historic sites in the surrounding area. Some restaurants and historic sites may require a reservation so call ahead and see. It can get cold and snowy here, so if you’re walking, dress warmly! If it’s raining, umbrellas are available at my place. ENJOY!!!
