My husband and I stayed here for two nights over the long Labor Day weekend. We were extremely happy with the room's size and cleanliness! We particularly loved the beautiful grounds, especially lying in the hammock after a log day of hiking. We were pleased with the fact that we had found a B&B that was dog friendly! Kathy and...

Thank you for your kind review. We're thrilled that you enjoyed a relaxing Labor Day holiday weekend with us! While we love dogs (especially our two pugs who live in our private residence), we welcome small, well-behaved dogs only in our Moonshadow Suite. Some guests don't like to share their space with pets and we respect that choice. If any...

We went to upstate NY to go visit our daughter at a nearby camp for a Parents Weekend. I wanted a B&B that came with super reviews. The reviews were everything they said and more. Kathy's hospitality and her home were the most welcoming experience . Our room was clean and bright and soothing and relaxing all wrapped into one...

Spent the weekend (7/13-7/15) at Moondance Ridge B&B. What a wonderful relaxing place! Kathy greeted us and gave us a tour of the home. It is immaculate, spacious and inviting. The property is the perfect blend of natural beauty and some lovely well-planned landscaping. There is a lovely living room/dining room combination with big beautiful windows overlooking the grounds, deck...

We had never been to New Paltz before, but will definitely be back. We were greeted at the door by Kathy who had cupcakes, tea and softdrinks at the ready in the dining area, when we arrived. She puts out snacks every afternoon. Our room was very clean and the King sized bed and pillows were quite comfortable. We were...

Beautiful bed and breakfast, immaculate, beautiful grounds. Having never been to New Paltz before, the owner, Kathy, pointed us in the direction of some wonderful restaurants, and we loved them all! In addition, she was quite friendly and helpful with local information, and was able accommodate different times/diet restrictions for breakfast. Highly, highly, recommend this wonderful bed and breakfast!

My husband and I loved, loved, LOVED this B&B. We absolutely did not want to leave! We had little else on our agenda other than to simply, to quote the Moondance Ridge's delightful innkeeper, Kathy, "bliss out," and we were able to do just that. The inn itself really makes you feel as if you're staying in a rented home...

A friend and I went to New Paltz to bike and hike this past weekend. After a grueling 38 miles bike ride through the mountains, I was thrilled to arrive at Moondance only to be welcomed by a sweet soul, Kathy. The place was gorgeous, inviting, relaxing and most of all peaceful. I was able to soak my sore muscles...

We just returned from another memorable stay at the Moondance Ridge. Our room was immaculate, spacious and tastefully appointed; the breakfast area and the living room were cozy and comfortable; the grounds were verdant and full of birds and, set well back from the road as it is, makes for very quiet nights. Kathy fed us a hearty breakfast and...
