We were here for a mid week getaway for 2 nights. We stayed in "Starry Night". The room is located on the corner first floor with a door to the front porch. What a great place to relax!! The room is clean and comfortable. It has a large soaking tub (great for post-hike) and a fireplace. Kathy, the owner, loves... More

My husband and I traveled here for a weekend getaway from the city to celebrate our anniversary and absolutely loved it. The owners are such a lovely accommodating couple, the rooms are great, the snacks left out are perfect for a lazy weekend (top it all off with the delicious home baked goods!) and the breakfast was unreal and so...

We had a lovely three-day stay at Moondance Ridge. The room was large and comfortable, the breakfasts were amazingly delicious and varied, and Kathy (our hostess) was warm, funny, and very knowledgeable about the area. Moondance Ridge is located on a quiet street, yet just a 2-3 minute drive from the center of town. There are many activities within easy... More

Moondance Ridge..the name evokes romantic images of dark tree covered mountains and star filled skies, a haven where civilization melts away to be replaced by quiet solitude. For a city dweller like myself this is the ideal escape for a night, a few days or a long weekend. Moondance Ridge..I could hardly wait to get there. The b&b is situated... More

Moondance Ridge is an exceptional bed & breakfast. Spotlessly clean, accommodating, convenient to downtown New Paltz, restaurants, shopping, and hiking. My fiance surprised me with a trip here for my 30th birthday. Kathy is an amazing host! We were greeted with the most amazing breakfast both mornings we were there- homemade blueberry muffins, a peach yogurt smoothie, a crust-less Swiss... More

for us this was the perfect b&b. the rooms are large and well equipped, the grounds are beautiful and just far enough from the main drag for privacy everything was provided from a huge selection of dvds to hiking passes in mohonk preserve to chocolate kisses.

We had a wonderful room in this purpose built B&B- lots of space, sofa all the mod cons one would want. It is outside New Paltz but we walked in for dinner via the historic district which was very interesting. Kathy had given us a taxi number as she didn't advise walking home in the dark and it was a... More

This home away from home was a nice find. I had seen no hotels of merit in the area so I searched B&B. Kathy was a great hostess and we loved her two pugs who greeted us each morning. It is set a little ways North of town and there is a lot of greenery around. She has a porch,... More

We just came home from a two night stay at this wonderful little B&B. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. Kathy was a wonderful hostess. The breakfasts were amazing! We stayed in the Starry Night- a very beautiful room - close to front door, and food access as well.

We got a last minute July 4th weekend reservation at this B+B, for a last minute get away. As parents of a 4 year old, we couldn't wait to just relax for a few days.
