Go for a room with balcony with cliffside view of trees and mountains. It is a very peaceful place. The rooms are simple but comfortable. Nice place to relax even in the rain. Not sure if this is a bed and breakfast or hotel...probably someplace in between. There is a common room with a view where you can always get... More

I was surprised to read all the negative reviews of Minnewaska Lodge. Perhaps the expectations of these guests were different from mine. Granted, it is not a luxury hotel and some of the lodge's staff members are sweet but not entirely on the ball. However, the setting is absolutely gorgeous, with a beautiful view of the mountain. The rooms are... More

Have been going to Minnewaska lodge for several years. We stayed 2 nights the last weekend in May 2015. (1). Maid wrote us a note that our room would not be cleaned because we weren't back there by 11:00 (which we were) - where did this rule come from? At these prices! (2). Gym had broken machine, no water in... More

Stayed this weekend. Bad:We were supposed to have a cot in the room.......no cot. Ended up with a mattress on the floor. People above us were up and running around until 2am, called the desk twice, no help. Moldy ice bucket. They state they have a gym...but don't count on using it before 8am. The staff was unfriendly and rather... More

What a great place. The location is very peaceful and tranquil. A great place for a couples weekend. The staff was amazing. There were 2 gas fire pits, great to just sit and relax. I will defiantly be back!

Recommended by our son and girlfriend who usually spend a night or two at lodge and hike. We live in northern NJ and place is about one hour drive.. Had gift certificate for lodge from children and decided to go on one night excursion. Much needed. Place is total tranquility! Peaceful and beautiful. Got there early...about 11 am but front...

Natural beauty location, that's it, nothing else. Impersonal, zero service, apathetic staff, poorly run, terrible, save your $£ , go elsewhere! No words to state complete disappointment- total bust out. There are -zero- amenities at this property. Aside from breakfast - zero, nada, zip! A glass of wine, a bite of food, not available! Aside from a deli next door... More

I spent one night here and yet I have to say, this is a very special - even magical - place. The location at the base of the Shawangunk Mountains is tranquil and gorgeous. The quiet is profound. There are fire pits outside and to sit in a chair with the fire crackling and gaze up at the mountains ...... More

Not friendly, found the room dirty when we arrived late, the toilet was literally covered in grime on the inside rim, crumbs on the night table. Second day, no one cleaned the room, third day we requested the room be cleaned and came back to find the balcony door (we were on the 1st floor) wide open, not only to... More
