From Kathy's warm welcome at the door, my wife and I were totally impressed with Moondance. The house was spotless, room was spacious and the food was excellent. Lovely grounds to walk and relax. Will definitely be returning.

We took a night out of New York and stayed at Moondance in snowy February. Kathy gives a warm welcome, and enjoys cooking for her guests. We arrived without a car and she offered us lifts into town and loads of info on things to do in New Paltz. This is a funky little town; a quirky place to step... More

My friend and I decided to stay here a quick weekend getaway from the city. We had a wonderful stay. Kathy and Arnie were friendly and welcoming hosts. The house was modern, tasteful, airy, bright and relaxing, surrounded by snow covered forest and hills, complete with numerous colorful birds and deer tracks. Using the sauna on a starry, snowy night... More

My wife and I celebrated our 25th Anniversary by spending a wonderful time at Moondance Ridge B&B. We were drawn here by the very positive reviews, and they were certainly borne out by our experience. Kathy, the innkeeper, was very friendly and personable, but not in any way intrusive. Clearly, she loves what she does and that was evident in... More

My boyfriend and I spent New Year's at the Moondance Ridge B&B and couldn't have been happier. Kathy greeted us right away and made us feel at home. Our room, Starry Night, was beautiful, comfortable, and cozy. The views from our windows were breathtaking. We enjoyed every delicious homemade meal and snack Kathy made for us, and we loved ending... More

My husband and I chose to stay at Moondance Ridge Bed & Breakfast for a brief fall getaway, largely based on its excellent reviews here; and boy, are we thrilled we did!! The B&B is tucked away in the charming, delightfully quaint town of New Palz - about a 15-20 minute drive from the NY Metro North train station (in... More

Gourmet breakfast was prepared each morning with great care to our preferences. Coffee, tea and snacks are available all day. The accommodations were excellent. Many recent movie DVDs were available for a leisure evening in. I very much like that the grounds show quite a commitment to the environment.

Sincere thanks to Kathy for all the hospitality and kindness crammed into what was, for us, too short a stay in this beautiful property and area. We were on a sentimental journey for my wife up to the Hudson River Valley area. Minnewaska and Mohonk were places regularly visited by her as a child on family holidays. Our time was... More

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...
