This was a great spot for a couple of days out of the city. The lodge was warm and welcoming. Our room had a beautiful view of the cliffs and was comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was great - slow-cooked oatmeal was perfect to get you going for a day of hiking and the cookies available with coffee and tea during... More

This lodge is one of my favorite spots to stay in upstate New York. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. The back outdoor area has a great seating area with fire pits to hang out at night. There is also hiking onsite. The breakfast is amazing. You gotta try the homemade granola its the... More

I was pleasantly surprise when I arrived at the lodge. The Foliage was amazing and added to the ambiance. The room was just ok but the views made up for it. Really enjoyed the fire pit and breakfast. Not a lot of restaurants to choose from s o make your reservations early. Had lunch in New Paltz at McGillicuddy’s. The... More

I just returned from a weekend stay here for the fall foliage. I was so pleasantly surprised. The lodge is beautifully decorated and spacious. We had a cliff side room. The room was comfortable and clean with a large window. They even give free wifi without a log on or password. I know so many large hotels that don't offer... More

I absolutely love this lodge. The setting is so peaceful and relaxing. We love everything from the breakfast, to the surroundings, to hiking on the Mohonk Preserve and relaxing by the fire pit at night. Make your reservations way in advance because this place books up quickly in the summer and during the peak fall foliage season. We even enjoy... More

Minnewaska Lodge is a clean, comfortable, rustic and laid back spot that my family and I have enjoyed for years. The location is excellent, being a short ride to downtown New Paltz, the quaint, smaller town of Rosendale and the entrances to Minnewaska Park and Mohonk Preserve. We enjoy bringing our bikes and riding one of the beautiful park's carriage... More

My husband drove up here for our 10th anniversary. I prepaid for my first night. We booked a room with a forest view. Our room view was of the parking lot with trees behind it. I went to get in bed and there were tiny hairs all over. So gross!!!! My husband tried to brush it off like they were... More

At a warm inviting lodge with friendly staf and a spectacular view. Enjoy the fresh cookies at the check in desk and make your way to your room with a view. Feast on a fresh healthy breakfast before heading out on a hike in the local parks. There is a trail for everyone.

We returned after a few years to stay at Minnewaska Lodge for 3 nights, and were not disappointed. Although our cliffside view room was overbooked for the first night, the alternative forest side room that was offered (along with apologies and a very nice discount) was quiet, comfortable and we decided to stay there all three nights. Our stay was... More

I just spent two nights at the Lodge. At first view this is an enchanted place, just under the cliffs of the Shawungunks. After adding in "service fees" the rooms came to $325 per night. I suppose you are paying for location, but a price like that should indicate a higher level of accommodation as well. Here is what we... More
