Soar into the

A four-season gated residential preserve just 90 minutes from Midtown Manhattan in Bethel, NY

Let our in-house team work with you to design and build your private home where the wilds of nature are forever yours. The normal routine is not found here in this community of more than 140 homeowners. A different way of life awaits, and it is anything you want it to be. Carve up a lake on water skis. Ride Horses. Discover hidden waterfalls. Learn something profound from a chestnut tree. It is only ninety minutes away from midtown Manhattan. And yet, it is a world away.
Enjoy every shade of blue

Swim, paddle, ski, wakeboard, and fish to your heart’s content on 2,000 acres of freshwater lakes with over 35 miles of shoreline.
