Welcome to a unique experience at Hungry Ghost Guest House, a smallNew Paltz, New York bed and breakfast with an "active retreat" feeling. Located on 20+ wooded acres at the base of the Mohonk Mountain Preserve, you will be yards away from the rail trailand only minutes from Minnewaska State Park. We take pride in serving an organic vegan breakfast to our guests, incorporating mainly local ingredients. Most menu items are gluten free as well. Mike and Petra Trunkes are excited to be your hosts.

Nestled in a hemlock clearing, Hungry Ghost is a premier New Paltz, NY retreat. Just moments away from access to well over 70 miles of maintained carriage trails for running, hiking, bouldering, and mountain biking (cross-country skiing is only a short drive away.) Enjoy guided runs with Mike, an elite master's distance runner, or head off on your own. Bikes are available in town for a casual ride into town on the rail trail, or bring your own for a trek up into the mountains (rentals can be arranged in the village.) When winter is upon us, cross country ski or snowshoe, weather permitting.
For the less athletic traveler, ourB&B is conveniently located near walking trails and offers an eclectic collection of books to be enjoyed on the covered porch or out in the hammock with afternoon tea or a glass of our own filtered spring water. Or try a vegan cooking lesson with Petra.
After a full day of activities, come back shower off in the outdoor shower or relax in our oversized hot tub and to sit by the wood burning fire on cool evenings. Enjoy conversation about food, the day's training and activities, or retreat with a glass of local wine that you have gotten after a day of wine-tasting.
Certfied Total Immersion Swim instruction and analysis are available with Mike or Petra. Check out the website at www.tiswimstudionewpaltz.com This service is available at an additonal fee and swimming should be booked in advance.
