If a rural existence with a dash of style characterizes your ideal country life, High Falls and the neighboring towns of Accord and Stone Ridge are spots in which you should consider buying a second home. The hamlet itself has a population just over 600 people. The two-block village comprises historic buildings, a few boutique shops and a few restaurants. In the summer months, the town bustles with people taking advantage of the local swimming holes as well as the flea market where locals offer all sorts of wares.
