Destination guide

Be enticed by New Paltz

You'll find charming New Paltz peppered with rough-stone houses raised by European settlers, and imbued with such a down-to-earth NY charm that there's always an excuse to stay another week, or two. In fact, New Paltz vacation rentals draw all sorts of people these days. Adventurers come to scale the rock faces of the Shawangunk Ridge. Students fill the pubs and the lecture halls of the State University of New York. History buffs trawl Huguenot Street. Free thinkers and New Agers discuss in the cafes. It's a kaleidoscope of local life.

Things to do

Landmarks and landmasses in New Paltz

New Paltz is home to the living history museum that is long and winding Huguenot Street. It's dotted on either side with lichen-peppered stone cottages and farmhouses dating all the way back to the 1700s. Once you're done touring the National Register stops there, you can head to the hills that overshadow them. They loom up with the peaks of the Mohonk Preserve to the west. Clad in forests and carved with challenging rock climbing faces, they also host the Mohonk Mountain House – a classic, grand old dame of a building that's now a spa.


Expeditions around the NY ridges in New Paltz

If you've booked one of the cozy New Paltz vacation rentals close to the Mohonk Preserve, then it's just a short hop from your doorstep to a medley of hiking trails, mountain biking routes, rock climbing faces – some of the most acclaimed in the US – and snow shoeing courses. The adventure glands will work overdrive there, between the sculpted crags and fir forests. Others will prefer something more subdued, for which there are orchard tours, apple tasting trips, history walks of Huguenot houses, and yoga sessions beneath Shawangunk Ridge.


Changing seasons in New Paltz

Although New Paltz oozes New York charm no matter the season, you'll need to decide carefully about what time you book your New Paltz vacation rentals because the months can change the character of the place considerably. Winter, between December and March, is icy cold and the Mohonk Preserve is the province of cross-country skiers then. Spring, in April and May, is a beautiful time for hikers. Summer and fall are perhaps the most popular of all, though. They have clear, crisp days for rock climbing and seeing the old European stone houses of Huguenot Street.

Natural features

New Paltz sits between Appalachia and the NY Hudson

New Paltz sits in a cleft between the start of the Appalachian ranges and the wooded Hudson Valley. That makes it a perfect gateway to some of New York State's wilder climbs. Just to the west of the old town center is the Mohonk Preserve. It's got glowing white-stone rock protrusions that are like a magnet for rock climbers. It's got snowshoeing and hiking routes. Further west is the wilder Minnewaska State Park Preserve. There, waterfalls and wide lakes lurk, where black bears and coyotes both roam the land.
