Growler filling station

Cold Spring General Store is housed in an 1897 building and prides itself on being the kind of shop that would have existed in the village 100 years ago.

The Cold Spring General Store’s signature switchel goes down great with bourbon. Cold Spring General Store focuses on handmade and traditional American goods, from candles to soaps to apparel to moonshine.

One of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon in Cold Spring is by shopping on Main Street. Cold Spring General, which focuses on handmade and American goods for the home as well as women’s and men’s apparel, also has a little grocery, along with a growler filling station—a great amenity for craft beer-drinking locals. Don’t pass up on the store’s signature switchel (a punch of honey, vinegar, and ginger), which goes down great with bourbon. Head up the hill to Cold Spring Apothecary to stock up on the best-smelling products out there for both your medicine cabinet and your home. We love this shop’s beauty products just as much as we love the space, whose whitewashed walls are complemented by the snow outside its large windows during winter. Treat yourself by getting a facial, or warm up with one of many signature tea blends. Another gem is Old Souls, which carries supplies for the great outdoors. The homey shop is adorned with taxidermy, pennants, and vintage flags. Fashion meets function with a wide selection of highend outdoor brands like Filson and Danner, which are sold with zero hipster irony.
