Welcome to Hunter

Why I Love Hunter, NY

Hunter is Greene County’s true mountain town. Nestled among the region’s highest peaks, it is also home to some of the top attractions in the Great Northern Catskills. Within the Town of Hunter, you will find two villages – Hunter and Tannersville. Since the area was first settled in the early 1800’-s, tourism has been the lifeblood of the community. Whereas the rocky, mountainous terrain made large farming difficult, the stunning scenery attracted artists, poets, writers, and wealthy travelers who wished to escape city life and draw inspiration from nature. Residents refer to Hunter Real Estate as “on the mountaintop,” because it is. They come to Hunter because they want adventure, they want freshness. Come to Hunter NY where you can find other mountain-loving rugged individualists to keep you company. This is where you’ll find Hunter Mountain, Colgate Lake, Kaaterskill Falls, and more trails than an AT hiker can shake a walking stick at await you.
