As its name implies, Rondout Valley Resort is in a lush valley filled with an abundance of beautiful vegetation. The resort is spread among 180 acres of native trees, including pine and sycamore, that blend together to create an awesome natural beauty.
Two streams that run through the resort provide for some excellent fishing fun and yield trout, pickerel, and other stocked fish. The sound of their rippling waters is also considered to be soothing and relaxing.
The resort is just off U.S. Highway 209 about midway between Ellenville to the south and Kingston to the north. Here in the Catskills Region you’ll find fish-crowded streams, forested mountains, country wineries, antique trails, Dutch and Huguenot settlements, and lots of other delightful attractions. Visitors can walk paths where America’s history began… Kingston 1652, New Paltz 1678, and Coxsackie 1663. They can return to the glacial age at Ice Caves Mountain and stroll through Woodstock, the home for half a century to artists, writers, and actors.
Kingston was the first capital of New York State (1777) and now attracts visitors with its restored waterfront, marinas, museums, and shops. The Old Dutch Church, on the National Register of Historic Places, was congregated in 1659 and offers tours. The Senate House in Kingston is a state historic site, and the meeting place of the first New York State Senate in 1777. Hudson and Rondout River cruises begin here, and visitors will find evening sailboat rides, showboat cruises, dinner and brunch cruises, and music and dance cruises.
The Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site is in nearby Hyde Park. Home of the 32nd president, it’s maintained as it was at his death in 1945.
