Continuing North on Route 9 in Dutchess County
On your way into the center of town, you’ll pass by a few landmarks including the Red Hook Public Library. This historical uniquely shaped building is also known as the Hendricks House. Built in 1865 this octagonal structure is a rare example of the mid-19th century style with 3 floors — one of which is dedicated to a children’s library.
Just beyond the library is the center of Red Hook, complete with fun shops and awesome restaurants – all walkable to your home at Tradition at Red Hook!
Continue north and you’ll find Greig Farm, Tivoli Bays, Bard College, Kaatsbaan, the village of Tivoli, and SO much more!

Just a few miles beyond that is Marist College, which is not far from the prestigious Vassar College.

Just over the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge, you’ll discover the waterfront district of Kingston, opportunities for chartered cruises on the river, and beyond that in the Catskills you can enjoy skiing, tubing, camping, and the great outdoors!
