Wanting to be within about 30 minutes of Albany and not too far from Amsterdam really limits your options because you're looking west of Albany/Schnectady and there's lots of suburban development northwest of Schnectady and west and southwest of Albany. Your best bets are probably Schoharie, Duanesburg, and Esperance south of the Mohawk River and maybe Hagaman and Galway north of the river.

If you're looking for rural/semi-rural areas within a half hour of Albany without the requirement of being "not too far from Amsterdam", southern Albany County and Greene County -- towns like Altamont, Berne, Knox, Westerlo, Greenville, New Baltimore -- would be good places to look. Rensselaer and Columbia Counties, across the Hudson River from Albany, would be even better, but they would be on the opposite side of Albany and pretty fair from Amsterdam. Most of the central and eastern parts of the counties are still predominantly rural: Cropseyville, Melrose, Averill Park, Grafton, South Schodack, Grafton, Nassau, Valatie, Chatham, etc.

I would second this post.


We live in Otsego Cty- 3 miles over the Schoharie county line. Very rural- we have 103 acres, or even north of here into Montgomery Cty to places like Canajoharie or Fort Plain, closer to Amsterdam.


Canajoharie is an exit on I-90: it's right there.


From here, near Sharon Springs, we are about 30-40 minute ride to Amsterdam, about 1.25 hrs to Albany. Hubbie commutes to Albany and it's about 55 miles each way to Empire Plaza along Rt 20, to I-88, to I-90. Both Duanesburg and Esperance are closer by 20 miles or so to Albany than we are. Good luck.
