Ellenville is quintessentially American place. The mountain valley village is surrounded by the Shawangunk Mountains to the east and the Catskills in the northwest, creating a stunning scenic surrounding that makes Ellenville ideal for outdoor activities.
Downtown Ellenville has plenty of history to discover with the Ellenville Public Library's Terwilliger House Museum, Cragsmoor Stone Church, and the George and John R. Hunt Memorial Building, plus the Art Deco theater Shadowland Stages -- a great location to catch a cool theater production.
Ellenville's location makes it a stepping stone to all sorts of exciting outdoor activities. There are wonderful hiking trails in the Shawangunk Mountains, plus Ellenville is know as the Hang Gliding Capital of the Northeast, with hang gliding schools, and an awe-inspiring launch site on the Shawangunk Ridge. It's also ideal for runners, with various races taking place here annually. There are also places to golf, horseback ride, rent off-road vehicles, and more.
In August visitors can enjoy the fun of the annual Blueberry Festival, drawing crowds to the quiet village to celebrate the local fruit.
