Mount Tremper, the hamlet and the mountain, are in the Catskill Park Forest Preserve, which just about says it all! Rushing streams, steep slopes, thick forests and curvy mountain roads make this Town of Shandaken locale an exciting getaway or fantastic place to live. With Woodstock just down the road in one direction and Phoenicia in the other and the NYS Thruway just 10 miles away, Mount Tremper is a peaceful oasis on the Esopus Creek, yet handy to everything. Take your choice from homes near the road or up half-mile drives into the mountains, with prices ranging from $119k through $1.3 million.
People who come on the bus, people who arrive by helicopter, old-timers, newcomers, you’ll find everyone in Mount Tremper, from firemen to models, bankers to boxers, surgeons to sous chefs. Mount Tremper is rural but it’s certainly not backward. Things happen here, because people come here to do things.
There’s something for everyone in Mount Tremper, from outdoor dining and music at The Pines to stimulating shopping in a 19th-century barn at the Emerson Resort. Shop Hudson Naturals products at Foxfire Mountain House before savoring a drink and their house-made pasta. Or make the short trip to Woodstock—go the back way, not on Route 28—for superb bagels and coffee at the Mud Club. For something special, take in the New York City Opera or other guest artists at Phoenicia Festival of the Voice.
Mount Tremper locals stay outdoors a lot of the time, whether it be on Tremper Mountain in their own back yard or coming down the slopes at Belleayre. Bring rod and reel or your kayaks, canoes and tubes for Esopus Creek expeditions. On Wednesdays, get down to Woodstock for live music, fresh foods and artisan-made goods at the Farm Festival. Visit the Shokan shop of award-winning Fruition chocolate, then go west to the Emerson for spa treatments. Take in the latest exhibition at the Margaretville Longyear Gallery or go to a concert at the Maverick.
