It’s almost impossible to drive through the colorful Greene County village of Tannersville without stopping: You just have to take a good look around. Thanks to the Hunter Foundation’s Paint Fund, the historic buildings on Main Street have been transformed by pastel colors and creative images so successfully that the Today Show, New York Times and Ladies Home Journal have all taken note. So Tannersville has become more and more popular in the last few years, although it’s always been active as the commercial center of the Catskill Mountains Town of Hunter and a busy outpost of the Hunter Mountain ski resort. And the fact is, when you open your windows in Greene County, the air is better up there! If you want a little Tannersville cabin, you’ll find it; if you are in the market for an extensive Tannersville family compound, that’s there, too… and everything in between, ranging in price from $179k to $2.2 million.
Tannersville is a great place for getting away from it all and reaping the benefits of living in the midst of the beauty of nature. People do everything from teach skiing to telecommute to their city haute couture jobs. They take dance classes and go to the movies. They meet old Greene County friends and new Tannersville neighbors at the lake or go riding on horses, bikes and wheelchairs. It’s like lots of wonderful Catskills places: Those who’ve lived here forever mingle with the new kids on the block, and they all have fun and learn from each other.
Ideally laid out for the kind of stroll we all love, Tannersville is packed with good food, interesting shops and exciting entertainment options. The Catskill Mountain Foundation is a bountiful resource to explore when you’ve showered and changed after your energetic day’s activities in the mountains. Browse the sustainable products at the Kaaterskill Shoppe. Take tickets in a benefit raffle at a Mountaintop Luau. Shop the market or dig into a pot pie at Last Chance Cheese & Antiques or enjoy the golf course view whilst sipping your stout at the Colonial Country Club’s Tin Cup café. Finally, don’t miss the offerings of 20-plus vendors at Tannersville Antiques or the bouquets and brioche at Fellow Mountain Café in Hunter.
Summer and winter, Tannersville is where people go to ski and skate, bike and bathe, swim and hike, golf and glamp. Just below Main Street is Lake Rip Van Winkle, a lovely spot for swimming or just soaking up the sun on the beach. That’s also where you pick up the Huckleberry Multi-Use Trail, an easy walk or ride of nearly three miles. Get some ideas for your garden or take a class at the Mountain Top Arboretum. Called “the most popular campground in the Catskill Forest Preserve,” North-South Lake has everything you could want in the wilderness and views of outstanding beauty. What to do on a rainy day? Down the road in Haines Falls is the Mountaintop Historical Society for catching one of their presentations under the tent at the Ulster & Delaware Train Station.
