The Town of Denning is located in the southern section of the Catskill Mountains, and Claryville is the hamlet at the heart of the town. Peace and quiet are hallmarks of this rural place, but don’t be fooled by its seemingly remote sensibility! The railroad barons of the early 20th century were impressed enough with Claryville to build several impressive estates here. The Frost Valley YMCA manages the estates, and visitors are welcome for retreats and solitude. Nearby is the trailhead for both Table and Peekamoose Mountains, while the Neversink River and Deer Shanty Brook flow clear and cold year round.
Home owners in Claryville enjoy the full benefits of rustic country life. Fishing camps for plentiful fly fishing line the banks of the streams and rivers. Mountaintop homes look out on glorious views of the southern Catskills and valleys below. Along winding country roads hunting cabins and summer camps abound.
