Try spending some of your active retreat time enjoying a private vegan cooking lesson with certified plant-based nutrition guide, Petra. Have your run form analyzed by former elite runner and professional coach Michael, or jump into a private swim class - all available on-site. Request a guided trail run on the trails. It's your time; spend it like it matters.It


For a more layed-back day, or at the end of a busy one, relax on the porch with a mug of tea. Sleep in the hammock by the pond. Rinse off in the outdoor shower, lounge in the chemical-free hot tub... or just be.

All food is prepared thoughfully at Hungry Ghost Guest House with attention focusing on high quality ingredients served in a casual setting. From June through Thanksgiving most of our produce is grown at Taliaferro Farm here in the heart of New Paltz. Our menus are unique and innovative - changing as the seasons change, or when Petra is feeling particularly creative in the kitchen.  Raw, paleo, and allergy specific diets are accomodated. 

Escape to the quiet of a unique and exclusive 3 room bed and breakfast tucked into the forest, only 4 miles from the quaint and bustling Village of New Paltz, NY.  Located only steps away from the Wallkill Valley  Railtrail, and only minutes away from the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State ParkWe take pride in serving a predominately organic, all vegan and gluten free menu to our guests, as well as a chemical-free environment. Join your hosts, Petra and Michael Trunkes for a few days in the region that has been described as "one of the Earth's last great places."
