A Quick Break On Your Road Trip Through Upstate New York

Marbletown is located off of Exit 19 of the NY State Thruway in Ulster County, approximately 90 miles north of New York City. Marbletown’s business district is called “Stone Ridge” and it is located near the towns of Kingston and Woodstock, across the river from Rhinebeck. If you need a pit stop with the kids, the Den of Marbletown is a great place to stop by and stretch your legs on your way from NYC to Albany, Saratoga Springs, Lake George, Niagara Falls, Rochester, Montreal, and Vermont. And we are about 3 hours from Boston and Philadelphia.

Kingston has a rich history as the first state capital of New York State and the Hudson Valley’s pastoral beauty inspired a great school of American painting. We have restored stone houses where George Washington slept, thriving cornfields today that once fed the Revolutionary Army, and charming farms with kid-friendly activities. You’ll want to come back time and time again on your journey through the area.

Ulster County

Marbletown is one of the many hamlets of small towns along the corridor of Highway 209 in Ulster County, and each town has it’s own personality and culture. Rural in feel, we are nonetheless a hub location for many experiences, including the historic architecture of Kingston, the artist communities in Woodstock and Saugerties, the mountain vistas of Phoenicia, village amenities of New Paltz, the charming shops of Rhinebeck, the family farms and orchards throughout Ulster County, and visits to upstate New York colleges.
