We have a not-so-secret gem of a resource right in our backyard here in the gorgeous Hudson Valley of Upstate NY and Columbia County - Tanglewood.

117 Smith Lane, Canaan, NY kitchen

Summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and host of fabulous shows in 2018 including Harry Connie, Jr, Stephen Stills & Judy Collins, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me, and pianist Lang Lang, Tanglewood is one of the favorite activities of both permanent residents and vacation home owners, both near and far. 

Tanglewood happens to be only 20 minutes away from this gorgeouus home at 117 Smith Lane, Canaan, NY. Built around 1820, this Federal Colonial has high ceilings and 5 bedrooms, including 2 master suites. Consider making this your primary home or vacation home, and retreat from the stress of city life and busy-ness by yourself, with family, or with friends.

On summer days, relax by the pool, take a hike at nearby Bates Memorial State Park, kayak at Queechy Lake, and then you and some friends and family can take an easy countryside drive to take in a show at Tanglewood. Doesn't that sound like a delicious way to spend a summer day?

If history is more your cup of tea, consider that Hancock Shaker Village is only 15 minutes away from 117 Smith Lane, and the Berkshire Museum is only 20 minutes from your door.
