The Village of Rhinebeck has long been seducing city dwellers into abandoning city lives, even if just for the weekend. It is home to the oldest Inn in America – The Beekman Arms.
Walk through the beautiful historic Village of Rhinebeck for a day of boutique shopping, stop along the way to savor a fresh cup of coffee, enjoy a meal with a friend at one of the local restaurants or cafés, see a movie, or dive into local history at a fun festival or crafts fair. Everything you need is close at hand.
Don’t forget to make a stop at the weekly Rhinebeck Farmers Market. The nearby Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is the nation’s premier training ground for top chefs, and Rhinebeck’s restaurants are truly a testament to fine dining. The Village is a food lover’s paradise! From gourmet dining to fun and funky cafés for freshly baked goodies and your special morning coffee. You’ll never be bored exploring the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley countryside with vineyards and historic Mansions. You’ll find wineries, horseback riding, nature camps, hiking, and even skiing in the nearby mountains.
Arts and culture abound in our scenic Hudson Valley location. There is much to discover, starting with an art-house cinema and the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome aviation museum. Special events at the famous Dutchess County Fairgrounds, home of the Crafts at Rhinebeck, Antique Car Show, the Hudson Valley Wine & Food Festival, the Country Living Fair, the Rhinebeck Antiques Fair, the Sheep and Wool Festival, and, of course, The Dutchess County Fair, New York’s second-largest county fair and one of the top agricultural fairs in the country. And there’s no time more magical than the holidays when the streets are closed to welcome the Sinterklass parade in the old Dutch tradition, a spectacle witnessed from window and rooftops. Rhinecliff, the riverfront hamlet, hosts high bluff views, marina slips, and the Amtrack station. Rhinebeck is an authentic piece of Americana.
