Enthusiastic Spirits Guest House
Minutes to Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Preserve, Gunks Climbing, the Tuthilltown Distillery, Whitecliff Vineyards, cross-country skiing, mountain and road biking, fishing, and around the corner to world class skydiving at The Ranch Skydiving Center. Yes, you can even jump safely out of an airplane. Enthusiastic Guest House is skydiver and pilot friendly; ask for info. We're also horse friendly so ask us about trails and overnight boarding.

Farming is a way of life in this neck of the woods. Farm stands and farmers markets, farm wineries and distilleries, dot the area. Spring kicks off festival season when apple trees blossom; summer in the Hudson Valley has great climbing, hiking, and canoeing while the autumn is all about pumpkins, changing colors, and apple picking. Winter (if it snows) transforms the Wallkill Valley into one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The white cliffs of the Gunks glisten just outside your bedroom window.

Located 90 miles from New York City in the Town of Gardiner, 6 miles south of New Paltz, in the heart of the Hudson Valley. Just about a 1 hour 45 minute drive from NYC or Albany and convenient by bus from the Port Authority to New Paltz or by train from Albany or New York.
