Pleasant environment, with great care from Kathy, the owner. Nice set up rooms with all amenities, clean throughout, nice breakfast. Kathy takes special pride in caring for her B&B guests, recommended great choices for dinner, and provided support for activities to be had.

My husband and I spent a week touring the Hudson River Valley during the fabulous fall season and Moondance was our "home base". The rooms are spacious, lovely and comforting, with wonderful extras like large spa tubs with aromatherapy delights. Innkeeper Kathy is incredibly welcoming, makes fabulous breakfasts, and her tips for hiking and dining in the area were all...

You are treated to a lovely setting both inside and out designed to help you relax. If you want to go into the historic village of New...

Chose not this Inn to stay for our anniversary. Best decision ever. Kathy, the Inn keeper greeted us at the door. She is just lovely. Gave us our space and was available when needed. The room was perfect. It was very comfortable, king bed, jacuzzi tub bathroom, smart tv and cable. Best of all, the breakfast was delicious. The grounds...

We spent three nights at Moondance. Fabulous location, minutes from town to great restaurants and bars. Quick drive to several hiking and bike trails. Wineries, distillery, and hard cider tap room very close by. The B&B itself is immaculately clean and modern. Many cozy spots both inside and out to sit and relax. We enjoyed speaking with the innkeeper, Kathy,...

We were here at the end of August and stayed in the Starry Night room. It was wonderfully decorated, clean as a whistle and very comfortable. Kathy, our lovely host, served the most delicious and healthy breakfasts. We were so impressed that she took the time to research her guests' dietary needs. The common areas are so inviting and peaceful,...

This modern B&B off the road in a residential neighborhood is a hidden gem. Only minutes of New Paltz, hiking, restaurants and tons of historic mansions and sites, Kathy is running a spotlessly clean modern B&B with rooms that take you back in time. The public areas are open and welcoming, a great place to mingle or watch the birds...
