My wife & I stayed here back in 2010 and again earlier this month (Sept 2013) this time with our two boys ages 8 and 5. Petra and Mike are great. It's very relaxing there and they treat you like family. Petra made DELICIOUS breakfasts for us both mornings including getting up at 5 a.m. on Sunday to accomodate us...

sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your very lovely review. What a weekend! It was so heart-warming to be a part of a very special weekend for your wife. She was, and is, amazing!!!

We spent the past weekend at Hungry Ghost Guesthouse and we will return for sure to our wonderful hosts, Petra and Mike. Their b&b is a special retreat from the city. The bedroom (room no 1) was very comfortable, bed and towels of good quality. Petra cooked for us every morning a breakfast made from fresh products from the local...

So happy that you enjoyed your weekend away. It is pretty incredible what is only an hour and 35 minutes away from the bustling city! The bus is only four miles away from the house (by car or trail), and although cabs are readily available, we are happy to pickup our foot-travelling guests. It did work out nicely that we...

We just returned yesterday from a wonderful stay at Hungry Ghost. Petra and Michael are the perfect hosts - Petra in particular is a genuinely kind, considerate and excellent host and person. I can see why they are always booked - it is like visiting good friends you've known for years, even if it's your first time there. Petra's cooking...

I fully agree with the many stellar reviews below. Petra and Mike are incredible souls whose house is a refuge of peace and well being. Their caring, intelligent and empathetic approach to all visitors makes them stand apart from all other bed and breakfasts I've experienced in my many travels. Worn out and emotionally raw from strenuous challenges, my partner...

I will accept this as quite a complement as I remember you travel all over the world for work and play. I also know that you will be jumping out of planes this summer right here in the gorgeous Hudson Valley. Stop in to visit or stay. or both! p.

Do yourselves a favor, stay with them, the house is awesome, they are really nice and genuine people.

This was my second stay at the Hungry Ghost with my fiance and this time another couple we traveled with stayed as well. Returning was like visiting family! Mike and Petra welcome people into their home so effortlessly. Their laid back energy/vibe is contagious and instantly puts us into vacation mode. As usual, they had perfect recommendations for food, sights,...

A week later and still we're relishing in our experience at the Hungry Ghost. Thank you so much to Petra and Mike for sharing their space with the rest of the world. We considered the cost of our stay more of a "donation" as opposed to a fee. We were more than happy to the contribute to the financial upkeep...

My boyfriend and I wanted a quiet, overnight retreat in the country. This was the perfect place! Surrounded by woods, very quiet. Rooms were very comfortable. Vegan breakfast was delicious. Petra was extremely accommodating and helpful when we had questions about the town/activities. The outdoor shower was amazing. Definitely recommend to a friend!

Finding a quiet escape just outside of Manhattan for the weekend can occasionally be a daunting task. Travelling to New Paltz, however, can be quite the treat to those looking for a pleasant weekend away from the frenetic pace of one's own work schedule. Contemplating a last minute weekend away back in April, my boyfriend and I made our second...
