Please forgive me if you read this post in another forum as I am trying to find the best place to learn information to my question.
First, I hope this email finds you well. Our family is interested in renting a home in or near the Catskills mountains in October for Columbus day long weekend and we heard that Woodstock and Saugerties (sp?) is a beautiful area to visit. We are a multi-cultural family (Latino, British, African American and Indian... yes, a mini-UN :) and would love to visit this area; however, given the sensitivity of race relations today, we want to enjoy visiting a location that is accepting and accommodating to all cultures. Unfortunately, that is not always the case when traveling to different regions in the US.
Please know, I have been told be a few people that the cultural diversity in this area is very low, but the people, settings, relaxation, and nature are beautiful. I truly hope its the case as I have identified a few great homes for us (8 of us ). It is unfortunate I need to ask this question these days; however, it's only because we want to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful area and feel comfortable (and welcomed) as well as others feel comfortable with our presence, as we respect this is not a vacation, but home to many. Trust, there are some places, even in 2018, we know we are not welcomed and do not visit those areas due to a couple of unfortunate past experiences (hence posting this question now).
Greatly appreciate if anyone has any insight and if ok, love to hear any recommendations on restaurants and best places to visit. Truly thank you in advance for your understanding and insight!
