The Saugerties Lighthouse
Like many towns situated along the Hudson River, Saugerties is both rife with history yet decidedly progressive, with farm-to-table dining, locally-owned boutiques, hip art galleries, and much more. Hereâ€™s just a glimpse at what Saugerties has to offer.
One of Budget Travel Magazineâ€™s â€œ10 Coolest Small towns in Americaâ€ and home to the Woodstock â€˜94 reunion rock concert, the town of Saugerties, NY, is cradled by the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains in Ulster County. Here you'll find a mix of high-end properties, affordable homes, residences within walking distance to the village, and places on plenty of land, mountain and/or water views.
