STONE RIDGE AREA
Nestled between our two favorite places on earth, the Catskills and the Shawangunks, Stone Ridge is a rural community with an understated yet sophisticated, high-end vibe. Whether you’re popping into a coffee shop for a cappuccino or sneaking away for a weekend at a historic inn, you’ll find yourself amid landscapes that look like they’ve popped off the pages of an Edith Wharton novel.
Set within a landscape of rolling hills, mountain vistas, lush trees and hundreds of miles of trails, the “Stone Ridge Area” also includes the nearby hamlets of Accord, High Falls, Kerhonkson and Rosendale – each with their distinct personality and must-see local attractions.
