We planned on staying at Moondance for 3 nights and liked it so much we added a 4th night. Kathy is very hospitable and welcoming and keeps the property immaculate. Our room had an awesome layout with access to an essentially private front porch and the bathroom was large and well stocked with crisp towels. Kathy even did our laundry...

We just spent 2 wonderful nights at this beautiful B&B in New Paltz New York, in the Catskill Mountains. We checked in on Thursday - late morning, and were greeted by Kathy, the owner of this beautiful home, built 11 years ago. Kathy was welcoming, explained about the history of the building, and showed us around. The common areas are...

My husband and I chose Moondance Ridge for our 20th anniversary getaway. From the moment that Kathy greeted us at the door we were treated like family. The grounds and home were beautiful and spotless. The breakfast was fresh and delicious and served with a smile. Our room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We even received a wonderful gift...

We enjoyed every single aspect of our stay at Moondance Ridge. Kathy was an amazing host. She gave us privacy and created an environment where we truly felt like we were in our own private home. She gave excellent recommendations for meals/drinks in town (Main Street is just a mile away); she provides her guests with free day passes to...

Kathy's service and beautiful B&B made our one-night stay feel like a real vacation. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We had a private bath with everything we needed (blow dryer, bath-gel, and a big bottle of Aveeno moisturizer at our disposal)! Kathy also generously provided cold beverages and water for our hikes, and a delicious breakfast included in...

We came to bike and hike for the long holiday weekend. We loved that it was close to town yet quiet in the evenings. Food was great (brownies in the shape of a muffin were sinful) and when we had to leave early, Kathy was kind enough to make us a breakfast to go. Our bikes even had their own...

My wife and I have visited the Moondance Ridge B&B before, and she recently surprised me with a return to my favorite home away from home. The room we had stayed in previously (Starry Night) was booked, but I loved the Moonlight Sky suite just as much, if not even more. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious, and I sleep...

My husband and I have stayed in New Paltz many times, but we have never stayed in a better place than Moondance Ridge! Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by Kathy who showed us to our amazing room - Starry Night. The room was large, beautifully appointed, mainly in white, and sparking clean. Everything was either brand new or as...

We came up to New Paltz to spend a couple of days hiking in the area. This B&B is conveniently located to the Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Park, and is within about an hour's drive of many good day hikes in the Catskills. Kathy greeted us upon our arrival. She is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. She wasn't...

We were attending a wedding at the Mohonk Mountain House, but opted to stay at Moondance Ridge instead. From the website, the room looked nicer and the price better. Both turned out to be true. Arnie met us at the door when we arrived and gave us a brief tour with warm, fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. The dining area is...
