Don't miss this peaceful retreat with fantastic and welcoming hosts!

5 on September 24, 2016

We loved Serene Vista so much we stayed for five days, while we'd only initially planned to stay for a couple of nights. My husband and I found ourselves in need of a last minute place to stay while our daughter was attending soccer camp at a university in the Hudson Valley. Already well into the evening, we called to check availability at Serene Vista and luckily Dan and Christina had room, gave us detailed directions to guide us, and warmly welcomed us on arrival. We settled into our suite on the first floor and made it our home for five days, instead of the two we'd originally planned on. The hosts even found room for our teenage daughter who joined us for the last couple of days and she greatly enjoyed the experience as well. Dan and Christina are warm and engaging hosts with interesting and varied backgrounds, wonderful conversationalists and fun to spend time with. They have excellent recommendations for activities and restaurants in the area, although you may find yourself just wanting to stay at the house and enjoy the beautiful views and company. The food is wonderful and ample and Dan was great in accommodating us (as we are vegetarian). Also make sure to take advantage of the spa! My husband and I got facials and massages and they were phenomenal - and we live in Thailand which is known for massages and treatments. Christina is warm, intuitive and highly skilled and you will feel amazing when done. When we are in the area again we will definitely make sure to book a room at Serene Vista.

Pure Relaxation

5 on July 18, 2016

We were looking for a romantic getaway not far from New York City. Most of the places we inquired about had a 2 night minimum and unfortunately we could only stay for one night. Our time constraint turned out to be a blessing in disguise. We found this hidden gem located just outside of New Platz in Wallkill, NY. Everything was perfect! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This was the cleanest accommodations we have ever stayed at even compared to 5 star hotels. The views were relaxing and enchanting. Just out of convenience we booked the dinner package. We didn't realize what a delicious meal it would be. The steak and salmon were so fresh, well seasoned and cooked perfectly (even better than the New York City steakhouses that we usually go to). To top it off the attached professional spa was a dream. It was the most relaxing massage we have ever had! Thank you so much Dan and Christina for making our vacation unforgettable.


Peaceful & Restful B & B

4.8 on May 25, 2016

When you first drive up the house seems unassuming from the front. However, when you walk around to the back everything changes and you have that wonderful feeling of “yes, I’m glad I picked this place!”. You’ll see gorgeous views of the mountains with a lush vista. There is a horse stable up the road so the beautiful horses roam free in the corral behind their property. Dan recently built a lovely patio with very comfortable outdoor furniture that is at your disposal. They recently completed renovation so the 2 bedrooms now have their own bathroom. The bathrooms are gorgeous, very clean and spacious. The shower was wonderful, great pressure with lots of hot water. Our first night there Dan & Christina had a couple over for dinner; they graciously invited us to sit with them so we all enjoyed a pleasant evening sitting outdoors. It was so comfortable and easy going, like being with old friends. There is a soft breeze that comes across the trees which makes it comfortable while keeping insects away. We took advantage one of the breakfast for two specials. Dan was very accommodating asking how we wanted it prepared so he cooked our eggs based on our request. They set up a table that overlooked the back of the house. We enjoyed breakfast with great coffee as we watched the horses meandering. My boyfriend has been under a lot of stress the past few months so he took advantage of using the Spa which was also recently redone. Christina is a wonderful masseuse; he said it felt like all that stress melted away once she was done. He was so impressed we decided to get my daughter a full service gift certificate since she too is under stress from finals and finding a job. We were not able to take advantage of the many parks and restaurants in the area since we had to drive back to unload my daughters belongings. We definitely plan on going back to stay at this peaceful B & B; maybe next time the fall to enjoy the foliage.

10-Day Stay!

5 on October 02, 2015

I had the opportunity to spend 10 days at the Spa B&B in August. Dan and Christina are charming hosts who went out of their way to ensure I had a very relaxing experience. The B&B is located in a perfect spot, overlooking the rolling horse meadows of Orange County. I spent many mornings and evenings just enjoying the marvelous views. And very easy access to many of the attractions in the area. Dan and Christina put a lot of effort into breakfast and the results are great. They will accommodate most requests and the food is excellent. I took advantage of the spa while I was there - two great massages from Christina. A perfect way to end a stressful day of wine tasting! In summary, I had a great stay and can highly recommend it.

Spa-tacular!

4.8 on August 26, 2015

A massage, body wrap, a delicious dinner and morning yoga in the middle of a sprawling horse farm, with rolling hills, cool breezes and the Shawanunk ridge beyond. Christina and Dan are truly gracious hosts. This is a special place that we plan to return to for bike riding, wine tours, birding and all round mind/body recharging.


Highly Recommend

5 on August 23, 2015

I highly recommend staying with Christina and Dan. My husband and I spent two nights at their bed and breakfast. Christina and Dan were both friendly and welcoming. Their home is surrounded by horse farms. We got to pet the horses in the morning. The backyard is beautiful and relaxing with comfortable chairs, a hammock, and breathtaking views of the pastures. The breakfast was delicious, and their home was very clean. Christina and Dan were easy-to-talk to and offered helpful suggestions regarding places to eat and things to do in the area. Staying with Christina and Dan helped make our trip relaxing, peaceful, and fun.
