Staff was more than friendly and room was very comfortable. We were given what I think was the best room in the house. The view was spectacular and we enjoyed sitting on our deck despite the rainy day. Room was clean and comfortable. Will definitely be back to visit.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Minnewaska Lodge for just one night at the end of October. The Lodge itself is simply beautiful, quaint, rustic, clean, and great views. The hospitality at the front desk was wonderful as well. Breakfast in the morning was a nice touch, and drinking coffee out on the back deck with the view of... More

perfect spot right below a ridge of the Gunks. Easy 5min drive into New Paltz for dinner at an amazing restaurant. Sit out back for a glass of wine before bed. Then get up early and head up the mountain for a hike. Our room was clean and had a very comfortable king size bed with a big white comforter.... More

Wonderful In. Everything was clean and cozy and the views and peacefulness was just what I wanted for a quiet weekend getaway. Snacks in the afternoon were yummy after hiking all day and the fire pits at night were an amazing touch to end off the day!

We enjoyed an overnight trip to head up state a bit to see the fall foliage. Minnewaska is a beautiful and mostly peaceful lodge. The people were real nice and they had a nice continental breakfast. The location right next to the state park and Mohonk preserve offers great hiking and climbing options. The lodge seemed clean and well kept... More

My husband and I spent the weekend at the Lodge. We found the lodge wass way over priced. We had to asks for a top sheet for the bed. We asked several times for shampoo. We finally received a shampoo, then the phone was unhooked. For $350. per night, we should not have to ask several times for basics. RIP-OFF!... More

I stayed at the lodge for one night. My room with two beds. My room smelled smokey, even though it was a smoke free room. Then upon looking under the sheets, I found over 6 dark hairs all in the bedding, I also found stain on the comforter. For this reason, I would never go back.

I stayed at Minnewaska for one night. The lodge is cozy, clean and has an incredible outdoor area that's very relaxing. Zia was very accommodating and went above and beyond to get an envelope to me I had delivered to the lodge. She was so sweet and a huge help. Would definitely recommend the lodge if you're in the area.
