Onteora is located in the heart of the Catskill State Park, 100 miles north of New York City, and 50 miles south of Albany. It is 8 miles from the village of Woodstock and 16 miles from Kingston and the NYS Thruway.

While it is possible to reach Onteora by bus and taxi, we highly recommend that you drive, because you will need to get out for lunches and dinners. You can take Metro North from Manhattan to Poughkeepsie and be picked up there by Enterprise Rent a Car to complete the last 45 minutes of your journey to the Mountain House.
