  • Insider's Info

    Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Corinne D'Andrea and Art Rifenbary for sharing their own secrets with!
    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    Most of our guests are into nature. They are hikers, bikers, climbers and love the comfort of coming back to friendly people and a relaxed atmosphere.

    What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

    Mostly, we love our guests, who, over the last 20 years, have been wonderful. We have made a great deal of friends and I feel people come because it's just a comfortable place to stay.

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    Beautiful hiking, biking and climbing at Lake Minnewaska State Park, and the Mohonk preserve

    What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

    Guests say we serve the best breakfast they have ever had at a B&B.

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    Best kept secret is that it is so close to NYC and yet so vastly different. To have deer, birds, mountains and a serene atmosphere is a surprise to most of our city guests.

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    Visit Lake Minnewaska State Park, visit Mohonk Mountain House and the Mohonk Preserve, go antiquing, play golf, go climbing at the "Gunks" (world famous for climbing), go sky diving at Blue Sky Ranch, visit Huguenot Street, which is the oldest street in America still inhabited by descendents of the original settlers, visit Hyde Park for the F.D.Roosevelt Estate, Vanderbilt Estate, and the Culinary Institute of America. There is much to do in the New Paltz area.

    Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

    Hiking trails; Town is 2 1/2 miles; mountains are 4 miles, so a vehicle is usually necessary unless guests just want to use our facilities.

    What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

    We have many restaurants in the area and a lot of them are owned by Culinary graduates. It would be hard to say which is a favorite.

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?

    I have a list of them on my website.

    How many rooms does your inn have?

    We have four with private baths.

    Do you accept pets?

    Depending on the disposition of the dog will usually accept them. However, guests cannot leave them unattended for long periods of time. We can't accept cats as too many people have allergies to cats.
