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!

Growing up in Rhinebeck, a small suburban town in the Hudson Valley, well known for it's numerous expensive restaurants and home to the oldest running hotel in the country, I came to appreciate the close net community comes with living in this small town. Usually crowded with city tourist on the weekends, Rhinebeck always has something to offer us locals. With it's entertaining venues
like Upstate Theaters, an Indie Cinema, to it's beautiful scenery in Ferncliff Forest, and locally owned shops you'll come to find that the crowd is always energetic and polite. Welcoming you with open arms and ready for a great conversation. However most shops are kind of pricy and finding a public restroom can be quite the difficult task. So be prepared to buy something from the stores to get them to let you use theirs. Other than that, if you enjoy the peace of mind it comes from being in a small clean town, Rhinebeck will always be the place for you.
Growing up in Rhinebeck it was a very great and community focused experience. The public schools were excellent and the wellbeing and kindness of the people was very refreshing. But Rhinebeck is not a diverse area, nor is it a cheap area. Rhinebeck is very expensive to say the least, and the jobs are few and far between, but the people overall were wonderful.
