About Tom and Julie
Although we never imagined living on a farm - it is one of the prettiest places on earth. We love nature and never tire of cliff views, the changing light, and the chance to see hawks, wild turkey, deer, etc. New Paltz is a phenomenal place to live with a great vibe in town and nice people who love outdoor adventures, art, and delicious food. We used to live in San Francisco and thought we'd never live anywhere else, until we got here. Come visit our farm. It's a great place to be. If you've got kids, they will love meeting the donkeys, horses, ponies, chickens, and our friendly dogs: Charlie, Oscar, and Bella.
Tom and Julie purchased this House in 2007
Why Tom and Julie chose New Paltz
The dead-on views of the Gunks. Early morning sun hits the rocks and the day begins fresh. At night we hear crickets, owls, frogs, and in the summer, we see fireflies as night sets. Hard to imagine a prettier place than LaLuna Farm.
What makes this House unique
The Schoolhouse Cottage has been a fun project. We like to make places nice...in this case, we wanted the Cottage to be the type of clean, quiet retreat we always wish for when we travel. We hope that our guests feel at home and enjoy the farm, the walking trails, the horses and animals. The Cottage is a perfect base for exploring the Hudson Valley.

We loved staying here - it was so quaint but plenty of space. There were plenty of warm blankets and the shower worked well. I wish there was a garbage disposal but other than that- perfect !!
A comfortable place to call home
Our family loved our time spent at the school house. Everything about it was comfortable and relaxing. Perfect location close to Wallkill with near by food and restaurants. We would absolutely stay here again!
Very comfortable cute place!
This is a great place to get away. The owners very gracious. They have a beautiful piece of property. The horses are so beautiful too. I would definitely recommend it!
Great place and great people. Classy reception from top shelf floks
Very friendly folks with flair for making guests feel welcome. We would definitely come back and recommend to others
Relaxing and lovely
Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Schoolhouse Cottage. The cottage was comfortable and cozy, with plenty of outdoor space which our 2 and 7 year old loved for playing ball in the yard after our day’s activities. The neighborhood is also great for running, biking, or walking. We visited Kelder’s Farm and hiked at Minnewaska State Park. We met Julie and Tom when we walked to meet the donkeys and horses (the farm was beautiful) and they were friendly and helpful. We’d love to return!
Stay at La Luna
We had such a wonderful time. The property is clean, beautiful, and light-filled. The yard is gorgeous and relaxing, the farm is amazing, and the location is perfect. Julie and Tom were so responsive and helpful. We would recommend this to anyone!
There is so much to do - every day. Here's a brief list:
Apple-picking; pumpkin picking; Art: Storm King Art Center and DIA Art Museum; Brew Houses, wine tasting, a whiskey distillery nearby; Cuisine...there are loads of restaurants to explore on both sides of the Hudson River given our proximity to the CIA, the Culinary Institute of America.
HISTORY: Huguenot Street - the oldest stand of functioning stone houses in America; Hyde Park is home to FDR's presidential library and Valkill where Eleanor Roosevelt lived.
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: Walkway over the Hudson - a famous and fun state park for walking, roller-blading, jogging, etc. Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park offer amazing carriage trails for hiking, and premier rock climbing.
It's hard to capture the area in a few words. Safe to say, the Mid-Hudson Valley is a piece of paradise.
