Bashbish Falls, Gilder Pond, Mt. Alandar, Bear Mt. & Sage Ravine. Drive to ski Butternut or Catamount in 20 mins. Twenty-five minutes to Gt. Barrington & twelve minutes to two of the Berkshires finest restaurants. Special spot Built in 1876 as the Alander Hotel, named after the mountain above, which was advertised as ''free of mosquitoes'' on account of the altitude and functioned as Pension & Summer Retreat for New Yorkers, who would take the train to Copake Ironworks & then be conveyed up the mountain by horse & carriage. Wives and children would spend the whole summer on the mountain, while their husbands commuted back and forth. It continued to function in this way into the early thirties, when declining visitors & rising taxes force the owners to burn down the wing containing the bedrooms and suites. It then continued its existence as a private house & small farm, still taking in guests, one of the most fabled of which being the aging Babe Ruth, who came up during deer season to hunt and carouse.
