The art, history, beauty and energy of the area has been inspiring extraordinary lives for generations

New Paltz is an eclectic, free-thinking town that attracts people from throughout the northeast, the United States and the world. Just like the Huguenots over 300 years ago, people are drawn to the natural beauty and the opportunity of the area.

If you love the outdoors, the region has plenty to offer. Miles of scenic trails, the Shawangunk mountain ridge and the Hudson River are here for you to enjoy.

If you are a foodie at heart or just love to indulge your palate with great flavors, local wineries, eateries and farmers markets offer the bounty of our region throughout the year.

If performance is your pleasure, you can enjoy theatrical productions, concerts and art shows on the State University of New York campus, at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, the Unison Arts & Learning Center, the Ulster County Performing Arts Center, the Bardavon Theatre in Poughkeepsie or any of the other numerous area venues.

If you have a passion for intellectual pursuits, with multiple universities so close by, there are ample opportunities to pursue higher education, take interesting classes or attend local lectures.

Centrally located in the cultural heart of the Mid-Hudson Valley, Woodland Pond is only 75 miles from the culture and energy of New York City. Easy access to the New York State Thruway and other major routes make it simple for family and friends to visit. Bus and train services to New York are available daily.

Whether you’re looking for adventure, culture, shopping, great food or rest and relaxation, if Woodland Pond is your home, you’ll have access to it all, right outside your front door.

From Our Residents

We had a very good life before, but Woodland Pond had enriched us in many ways, including companionship when we want it, and privacy when that is needed.
