Hudson River Living in Marlboro, NY
Marlboro is a historic Hudson Valley farming community, home to numerous apple orchards and apple-pickers who descend upon the area in late fall. The fertile Lattintown valley is also abundant with other fruit and vegetable farms. Positioned on the west bank of the Hudson River, Marlboro enjoys the perks of waterfront living combined with Illinois Mountain to the east.
Not unlike other Hudson Valley and Ulster County towns, Marlboro has its own local wine & dining culture. Marlboro is home to the Falcon, which hosts weekly live music and a variety of fine American dining. Benmarl Vineyards, Glorie Farm Winery and Kedem Winery are all located in Marlboro, producing local Hudson Valley wine and spirits.
Close to Metro North and Poughkeepsie, the villages of Marlboro and Milton are easily accessible from New York City, making it a perfect location for commuters. On the western bank of the Hudson River, the land falls off dramatically into the Hudson River where there is a riverfront park, a restored 1885 train station and marinas for Hudson River boating enthusiasts.
Mere miles from Marlboro is the stunning Walkway Over The Hudson State Park, a restored railroad bridge turned pedestrian and cycling path, affording miles of views up and down the Hudson River. The Hudson Valley Rail Trail heads west to Highland from the Walkway over the Hudson and offers residents and visitors another four miles of paved rail trail rich with opportunities for exercise and leisure activity.
