We were lucky to find a last minute vacancy and easily booked on their great website. This place is convenient to New Paltz and Gardiner, where our daughter and son-in-law were camping with our grandson over 4th of July weekend. We camped at Moondance Ridge and were really glad we did! The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and the...

The place was beautiful, Kathy and her husband Arnie truly make you feel at home. Breakfast was wonderful and my husband and I can't wait to go back there again. We stayed in the Moondance room was was so cozy and comfortable, and you really cannot ask for better hosts.

Moondance Ridge is a pleasant, comfortable, relaxing place to visit. Kathy was warm and helpful during our booking, but unfortunately fell ill shortly after our arrival so we did not see her again after our initial welcome. Her partner took over things beautifully and was thoughtful and friendly when we asked for recommendations of things to do in New Paltz....

My husband and I spent this past weekend at Moondance Ridge. Kathy, the innkeeper, is great. She was accommodating in every way, even giving us a bottle of red from the local vineyard so we did not have to run out. The breakfasts were delicious. We stayed in the Starry Night room, which is on the first floor. The room...

The Inn is gorgeous. We stayed in the Moondance room which was quiet, cozy, with a great bath and an adjacent sitting room with fireplace and TV. The common rooms are light filled, relaxing and reading next to the big stone fireplace was a treat for those of us normally confined to NYC apartments. Kathy, your host, is very friendly...

While on a business trip from Australia, I stopped over in New Paltz to visit my son on exchange at SUNY and was fortunate to stay at this gem of a B and B.

A lovely and peaceful place to visit. My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary here and it was very nice. Kathy is a a great innkeeper and makes a great breakfast.
