Our little village. Easy to explore from our place. There is a nice walking path if you cross Route 17 and follow Random Road for a couple of minutes and go left when you see a bench. There's also a nice track if you want to get in some exercise. Follow Windermere Avenue to get the beach (passes come with Airbnb). Don't miss our local Farmer's Market right by the beach every Saturday in June through October.

A 5-minute drive away and a short, easy hike to a waterfall. It's best after it rains. Once above the falls you can make it a longer hike by keeping along the Appalachian Trail until you get to Little Dam Lake or for as long as you want!
