Great small town with awesome restaurants and bars. Cute shops (although pricey) but you can explore and enjoy the day! Living in the area is great to be able to walk into town for food, a walk, drinks, etc. Good distance from Kingston and Poughkeepsie (not too far) PLUS the Amtrak train is right there!

I moved to Rhinebeck with my mom and younger sister when I was in 7th grade and it's been one of the most impactful decisions in my life so far. After living here for over five years now, I cannot imagine growing up anywhere else. Rhinebeck really feels like home to me, and with the small, close-knit community all of us feel the same way. The area is beautiful. The shops and restaurants and historical landmarks give the town an undeniable charm and tend to draw in outsiders and tourists. The people of the community care about one another and you always know your neighbors. We have one elementary, one middle and one high school. Class sizes are small, everyone knows each other and we're all friends. Growing up in Rhinebeck has been an amazing experience.
Currently a local resident and homeowner in Rhinebeck, I have two children that attend Rhinebeck schools, One graduated from Rhinebeck Highschool and the other is in elementary school. We absolutely love the school district. Every teacher our children have had inspired them to be themselves and never give up. As a resident, it is a beautiful Historic area with plenty of yummy restaurants, hiking, shopping, scenic river views, parks and just an all around charming and pet-friendly quiet community. Dogs are welcome well just about everywhere you go! Don't forget how easy it is to get to the city! If you want to drive it is easy peasy to jump on the Taconic if you prefer the train, the Amtrak to Penn station is minutes away located in Rhinecliff. (sister town of Rhinebeck) or if you prefer to go to Grand Central Rhinebeck is 15/20 minutes from the Poughkeepsie train station where you can take Metro-North!
