The NeighborhoodKatonah is a hamlet in Bedford in northern Westchester which features a quaint downtown of Victorian-style shops, amid picture-postcard homes and broad green spaces. While only 45 miles from Manhattan, the serene country setting makes you feel like you're a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Restaurants: Inn at Pound Ridge, Farmer and the Fish, Bedford Post Inn, Blue Dolphin Diner
Cultural activities: Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, Katonah Museum of Art
Hiking: Ward Pound Ridge (4,315 acre preservation with miles of hiking/jogging trails 1 mile away)
Nature: Wolf Conservation Center
Golf: Pound Ridge Golf Club, designed by Pete Dye (10 miles away) is a wonderful course available to the public
Yoga: O2 Living, Bedford Post Inn Getting AroundThe home is conveniently located to both the Metro North train station (3.5 miles to Katonah train station) or the highway (2 miles to I-684).
Car: Katonah is 45 miles / ~60 minutes from Manhattan (traffic dependent of course) and ~3 hours to Boston
Train: 60-70 minutes on Metro North from Grand Central to the Katonah train station (on the Harlem line). From the train station, you could take a taxi (~$12 / 7 minutes) to the house. Please let us know if you need local taxi service numbers. However, once you are at the house, it would be very helpful to have a vehicle onsite in order to get around town (grocery store, parks, restaurants, etc.). Everything could be done via taxi, but not ideal. Other Things to NoteWe want to help make your stay a truly memorable experience, and can suggest massage therapists for an in home visit (we have a massage table at the house), local yoga studios, tennis instructors for at-home lessons, great restaurants, golf courses, cultural experiences, hiking trails, etc. Please let us know how we can provide the most relevant feedback - we want you to love our country home as much as we do! It really is an amazing home in a perfect location that we would love to share with you on your travels.
