Nestled in a forest clearing, Hungry Ghost is a premier New Paltz, NY active retreat. Just moments away from access to well over 80 miles of maintained carriage trails for running, hiking, bouldering, mountain biking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. Enjoy guided runs or swim lessons with Mike, a former elite master's distance runner and triathlete, with Petra, or head off on your own. Bikes are available in town for a casual ride on the rail trail, or bring your own for a trek up into the mountains (rentals can be arranged in the village.)
For the less athletic traveler, our bed and breakfast 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 certified plant-based nutrition guide, Petra.
After a full day of activities, come back to our lodging, shower off in the outdoor shower or relax in our oversized chemical free 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 on your own with tea or a glass of local wine that you have gotten after a day of wine-tasting.
Experienced swim instruction and analysis are available with Mike or Petra. Just ask! Underwater video, mirrors on the bottom of the pool, knowledgable instructors, and a warm 91 degrees will make you fall in love with swimming. This service is available at an additonal fee and swimming is preferably booked in advance.
Video Run analysis is also on the menu. Michael and Petra are both USA Track and Field Certified Coaches. Michael is the Head Cross Country Running Coach and State University of New York at New Paltz.
A basic fitness area is available to all guests of our New Paltz, NY Inn with treadmills, balance balls, pilates and yoga mats and tapes, as well as some lighter free weights and stretching bands.
Whichever way you choose to spend your time here, we are excited to share the magnificent natural treasure that is New Paltz.
