Palenville is an enchanting hamlet at the base of the glorious Kaaterskill Clove, a scenic parting of the mountains lined with countless waterfalls and swimming holes, lush green trees and mossy boulders.
Another name for Palenville is "the village of falling waters" as described in the legend of Rip Van Winkle, a fictional citizen of the hamlet. This neighborhood was portrayed by the landscape painters of the Hudson River School, who stayed here while capturing the ethereal scenery of America's Catskill Mountains.
Today the hamlet is a cherished community where people know each other as neighbors and visitors are welcomed as friends.
