The Catskill Mountains or the Catskills are a large area in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of New York, located about 100 miles north-northwest of New York City and 40 miles southwest of Albany, starting west of the Hudson River.
The Catskills occupy much or all of five counties (Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan, and Ulster), with some areas falling into the boundaries of southwestern Albany, eastern Broome, and southern Otsego counties.
As a cultural and geographic region, the Catskills are generally defined as those areas close to or within the borders of the Catskill Park, a 700,000-acre (2,800 km2) forest preserve protected from many forms of development under New York state law.
The Catskills are well known in American culture, both as the setting for many 19th-century Hudson River School paintings and as the favored destination for urban vacationers from New York City in the mid-20th century.
Catskills have long been a haven for artists, musicians, and writers.

Choosing to stay in a Vacation Rental during your Catskills Getaway provides you with unique experience of feeling right at home.
Vacation Rental is a great alternative to a hotel or motel, because it provides travelers with a homey feeling. In general the cost of renting a Vacation Home is lower or comparable to a hotel, but often features more amenities and features, such as more space, fully equipped kitchen, DVD library, books, etc. Not to mention the outside yard or a grill that guests can use.
