Had a great 4-night stay in this beautiful place. The staff did a great job serving and making me feel at home. I felt a part of nature as the looming mountains beckoned me from the common area of the lodge.

I would absolutely recommend this place. The service was incredible, the food was awesome and the lodge itself was so homey and warm. The staff was so kind and helpful. The location was beautiful and in the wilderness but still close to town. Loved my stay there.

Upon coming back to our room late in the evening, after a long day, I asked the desk clerk for a bottle of water because when our room was serviced that morning they were not replaced. He told me that the bottles of water are only provided for the day of arrival and are not replaced on subsequent days. When... More

It is a nice lodge, but the acoustics are, frankly, deplorable. You can hear the conversations of people in the adjacent rooms quite clearly. If I would have brought earplugs I would have enjoyed my stay more. The breakfast is decent though the coffee is weak, but you can't beat the wonderful location and the decor is nice, too. Perhaps...

My friend and I just spent a weekend at the lodge and are planning another visit in the spring. The main dining room has tall windows overlooking the cliffs and hot tea, coffee all day. The breakfast was tastey and mostly all homemade (granola was delish). There was an awkward cardboard looking deer above the gas stove that was not... More

A year before our wedding my fiance and I stayed at several inns in the area in order to make recommendations for guests. Minnewaska Lodge seemed like a decent option for the mid-range budget. We weren't impressed by the spartan-looking rooms, but we liked the environmental rating and it has more accessible architecture (and good sound-proofing) for families and the... More

My friend and I just stayed here for three nights (November 18-21, 2013). I read many good reviews about the place and had a high expectation. Service- Upon arrival, the receptionist (big, tall girl) welcomed us with an angry face without saying hello or welcome. She looked angry the whole time we stayed there. Also, many other girls working there... More

I was here, for the first time, for a small business meeting. I was pleasantly surprised by the airy, light meeting room upon arrival. The fantastic meals, accommodating staff, and spacious, clean room were icing on the cake. I have to emphasize the amazing kitchen; such a treat from typical hotel fare from someone who travels a lot. Of course,... More

We really enjoyed our room with the balcony and mountain view. Breakfast was plentiful with many more options than other hotels (oatmeal, quiche, breads, fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts, fresh baked goods). The staff was very well acquainted with the area and was able to offer detailed advice for nearby hiking and eating. The property is beautiful. A very large lawn... More
