This B&B is lovely. We've stayed at quite a few over the years and Moondance was fantastic. They thought of everything - from the make-up removal pads in the bathroom to aroma therapy for the whirlpool tubs to a bowl of candy kisses in our room. Breakfast was a pleasant way to start the day - good food, plenty of...

We stayed in the "Moonlight Sky" room for 2 nights and our stay was great with a huge king size bed. Kathy and her pugs greeted us outside as we pulled up. She is a gracious and kind host with plenty of tips for the town and surrounding hiking adventures. Everything is clean and modern and you are made to...

The Moondance Ridge is close to the town of New Paltz in a beautiful rural area. The B&B is immaculate and meticulously maintained. It is light and bright, simply but tastefully decorated and offered all that we needed plus some including a collection of books, cd's, and dvd's, and delicious afternoon treats of cookies or cupcakes. Our room, the Starry...

Stumbled on this B&B from a random search on my GPS in the New Paltz area. Fortunately for me, they had a room. From the huge king sized bed and whirlpool bath to nutritious breakfast, it was comfort all the way with thoughtful treats between.

My husband and I chose Moondance Ridge for an overnight getaway and could not have been more pleased. The grounds are lush and the common rooms and guest rooms, all of which are immaculate, are inviting, warm and comfortable. There are gracious touches and niceties wherever you look which make for a memorable stay. Kathy & company are wonderful hosts,...

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary but didn't want to travel too far away from home. We just wanted a quick overnight getaway. We decided on a B&B. Kathy was so lovely on the phone when I called to book a room (last minute). I couldn't believe that we got so lucky, especially during a...

We stayed at Moondance for a wedding at Mohonk Mountain. We are B&B people and really did not want the bustle on the resort. PERFECT CHOICE. We are used to the 1800 farmhouse B&B. This is a purpose built inn with great character and a wonderful setting. Kathy and the puppies were the type of hosts we would always like...

We planned on staying at Moondance for 3 nights and liked it so much we added a 4th night. Kathy is very hospitable and welcoming and keeps the property immaculate. Our room had an awesome layout with access to an essentially private front porch and the bathroom was large and well stocked with crisp towels. Kathy even did our laundry...

We just spent 2 wonderful nights at this beautiful B&B in New Paltz New York, in the Catskill Mountains. We checked in on Thursday - late morning, and were greeted by Kathy, the owner of this beautiful home, built 11 years ago. Kathy was welcoming, explained about the history of the building, and showed us around. The common areas are...
