Contributing Writer
| 4 min read

One of the first things that come to people’s minds upon hearing “New York” is that it is a densely populated city. That is where we’re wrong—approximately 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of NYC lies Germantown, a peaceful and one of the safest towns on the east side of Hudson River. It maintains a rural atmosphere which is perfect for a quiet vacation. The spectacular views of Catskill Mountains will complete your boating and fishing excursion. You can also visit KEEP conservation preserve for nature walks and birdwatching. Families with small children and pets will enjoy frolicking at Palatine Park, Little League Park, and Dog Bark Park. Visitors can also trace down the history of Germantown by visiting the historical sites that are open for tours. For a place to stay, check out our list of the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in Germantown, New York.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities.
