Hi--we have never been to upstate NY and are considering the area for a weeks vacation next summer. We would be renting a cabin (probably vrbo or something similar). We are into the outdoors and being outside as much as possible. We would probably fly into NYC and then rent a car to drive up to our location where we would base ourselves for the week. We like hiking (nothing more then 4-5 hours a day), being on the water (kayaking, canoeing) and wildlife and nature. Not into anything touristy and would need some where along the way to pick up basic groceries for our stay. Any locations to begin our rental search would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
