My husband and I are both vegans and are usually learry of B&B's but Moondance Ridge takes first prize in accommodating vegans and vegetarians!! We were there for 4 nights and Kathy and Arnie were the perfect hosts. The vegan breakfasts were delicious and very thoughtfully prepared. They even had vegan cookies for us every day! They have Netflix already... More

My partner and I return to the Moondance each year on the anniversary of our first stay to commemorate a new year together. We love this place! Kathy is a wonderful host and always ready with restaurant recommendations. The rooms are all lovely and meticulously well-maintained (we've tried them all!). The jacuzzi tubs are wonderful to relax in with a... More

We did an overnight trip to check out New Paltz. This was the perfect location -- close enough to town, but in a beautiful woodsy setting. The room was beautiful, and nice and warm on a very cold night. Kathy and Arnie were wonderful, and the breakfast was not to be missed. Homemade muffins and a delicious quiche. They also... More

I am so glad that I took the opportunity to re-visit the Moondance Ridge. It has been far too long since I enjoyed the beautiful rooms and the warm hospitality, New Paltz has a very special charm and it changes from one season to the next. This time of year, mid-January, the mountains are cold and the woods are bare... More

We love Kathy and Arnie! They made us feel like family from the moment we arrived. We were celebrating our engagement and they made our weekend very special. Our room was stunning. Arnie's Blueberry Muffins are AMAZING!! We were there in the winter so we didn't get to explore the full 3 acres but the birds were wonderful to see.... More

We just returned from a marvelous stay at Moondance Ridge. Kathy and Arnie know how to take care of people. We were greeted by snacks and warm drinks, including homemade brownies. Our room was spotless and very well appointed with amenities. The view out the breakfast window was stunning, adorned by Arnie's handmade birdhouses that attracted many voracious bird friends....

As we turn the page on a wonderful spring, summer and fall, we are thankful for the guests who've shared their experiences at the Moondance Ridge B&B. Your kind words inspire us to be even better innkeepers! Life in New Paltz is a good, good thing and we are eager to share it with others! More

We stayed at Moondance Ridge Bed and Breakfast for our 21st anniversary. Where to begin...after doing B& B's on the East coast for the last 20 years we think we finally found the ultimate one! We arrived late and frazzled from traffic and from the moment we arrived, our innkeeper Kathy, made us feel welcome and relaxed. She helped us... More

My wife and I were extremely pleased with every aspect of the Moondance Ridge B and B. We stayed there one night and it was perfect in every way. The room was spacious, comfortable, immaculate. Great bed, bath with soaker tub, etc. The breakfast was delicious, and Kathy is very ingratiating. She was helpful with suggestions of points of interest... More

We stayed at Moondance Ridge B+B of New Paltz, for our 33rd wedding anniversary, spending three days and two nights in a very beautiful, very peaceful setting. It's just minutes from the center of town but is set back quite a bit from the road and leaves you feeling that the town is far far away. I don't know what... More
