The Neighborhood:
On the banks of the Hudson River in Greene County, New York, Athens is a historic village known as the "Gateway to the Hudson Valley." Its picturesque waterfront offers stunning views of the Catskill Mountains and serves as a hub for outdoor activities such as kayaking, swimming, and riverside concerts during the summer.

Athens boasts well-preserved 19th-century architecture and invites visitors to explore its rich history, with attractions like the Blenheim-Gilboa Visitor Center and the Thomas Cole National Historic Site just a short drive away. Winter transforms the region into a wonderland for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, with Windham and Hunter Mountain resorts within easy reach. Cozy inns and cafes provide respite from the cold, and ice fishing on the frozen Hudson River is a popular winter pastime.

Athens' strategic location makes it a gateway to nearby towns like Catskill and Hudson, both brimming with cultural and culinary delights, while Albany, the state capital, is a mere 30 miles away. Whether you're seeking historical charm, outdoor adventures, or a peaceful riverside escape, Athens, New York, offers a warm welcome to all.

Getting Around:
Sunflower Farmhouse is 2.5 hours from New York City, and you'll definitely want a car to get there and around the area.
In the winter, we recommend a car with four-wheel drive that can handle the snow and gravel roads.
Located in Athens, this vacation home is in a rural area. Greene County Council on the Arts and Bronck Museum are cultural highlights, and some of the area's activities can be experienced at Kaaterskill Falls and Catskill Golf Club.
