Canaan is a village of approximately 1,800 located in the Hudson Valley at the foot of the Berkshire Mountains. It lies right along the border with Massachusetts in northern Columbia County. The town of Canaan includes parts of the town of East Chatham, and also parts of the town of Red Rock are included within Canaan's southern boundary. Set among rolling hills and peaceful countryside, Canaan was settled in 1759 by settlers from Canaan, Connecticut. History buffs love this area of small, old towns with country stores, villages with old-fashioned ice cream parlors and antique stores. "Charming" is definitely a word that describes Canaan and the surrounding area. Attractions near Canaan include Bash Bish Falls, Copake Falls inside Taconic State Park, Kinckerbocker Lake just outside the village of Valatie and Lake Taghkanic State Park. Race fans enjoy the Lebanon Valley Speedway and Dragway, which is just a short drive from the town of Canaan. Located along Route 20 near New Lebanon is the Shaker Village of Mount Lebanon, This was the second and principal community of the 19 settlements the Shakers established in the United States, and many of the old, original buildings still remain.

Canaan Weather & Climate

Western New York, including The Berkshires, has a moderate four-season climate. The first significant snowfall usually occurs in December, but it varies from year to year. Some years there is no snow or ice until after the first of the new year, and the temperatures near The Hudson River stay quite mild. March is the month to look for the first signs of spring, although cool temps can linger throughout the month. Summers are hazy, warm and humid. September can be mixed with either clear, cool Canadian air or humid, warm air with intense downpours. October is possibly the most beautiful month in the Berkshires with warm, sunny days and cool, crisp nights. Perfect weather for enjoying the foliage. Typically, colors peak the first three weeks of October.
