Read the latest posts about Elizaville here.
Elizaville seems like a great spot if you want to be near the action, but not in it. Twenty minutes from swanky Rhinebeck (“the Hamptons of Dutchess County), Fifteen from Bard College and a short skip from Lake Taghkanic State Park, it also has two bodies of water, the Twin Lakes, one of which has a public beach. You’ll need wheels for sure if you rent or buy here, since not much more than a convenience store or pizzeria is within walking distance. The Bear Systems website has a list of Elizaville businesses, of which there are few. Plenty of quiet and nature here.
