In addition to touring around our beautiful back roads in your car to see the changing leaves and foliage, here is another mode of transport for you to consider.
The Inn at Green River is just 30 minutes east of the Hudson River, and enjoying a sail boat ride on the river to view the leaves is a very relaxing way of doing it. Capt. Jerome Hollick of the Tivoli Sailing Company offers Fall Foliage Sailing tours from mid-September through October. Booking a tour leaving from Rhinecliff or Tivoli would be the most convenient starting point for our inn guests.

In addition to the beautiful trees, you will enjoy seeing several light houses, and Olana, Hudson River Valley School painter, Frederic Church’s fabulous Persian fantasy castle, way up high on the ridge just south of the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.

But the trees are fabulous as you can see in this photo by Andy Milford that I borrowed from the Tivoli Sailing Company website (with Andy’s permission of course!). Aren’t the leaves gorgeous with the Catskill Mountains as a backdrop? Call 845-901-2697 or visit their website to book your outing, and don’t forget to pack a camera, a wind breaker, sneakers, and a sweater! It can be chilly out there on the water in the fall.
