So very glad I found Gunksview while looking for a place to prepare for and recover from the SOS Triathlon. Its perfect location is only a short drive away from Main Street in New Paltz, SUNY New Paltz, the Ulster County Fair Grounds, Minnewaska State Park, and Mohonk Mountain House. Both Franky and Jenny were friendly and generous hosts. Jenny (and Guapo, her friendly, rescued yellow lab) greeted us upon arrival and she gave us a thorough introduction to the studio and all of its amenities. It was very cozy and clean and had everything we needed during our stay. We especially appreciated the fresh fruit, eggs, and apple cider as well as her suggestions for places to eat (The Brauhaus!) and to trail run (Undercliff & Overcliff at Mohonk Preserve, including passes!). The biggest surprise was returning from the SOS Tri, depleted and sore, to discover a gift of wind chimes with flowers and a thoughtful note of congratulations! While the awesome rainhead shower and comfy robe were wonderful luxuries after almost 7 hours of cycling, running, and swimming, I do regret not having had enough time to enjoy the saltwater pool. Should we ever find ourselves traveling to The Gunks in the future, we would love to stay here again!
