This small lodge is designed to perfectly suit the upstate New York mountain history. The place is beautifully designed with wide open common spaces facing the beautiful cliff view, and the rooms are large and modern. Free Wifi, outdoor fire pits surrounded by Adirondack chairs, and a plentiful complementary continental breakfast make it easy to spend time here, and not... More

Our weekend at Minnewaska was great. From checking in to breakfast to the great comfortable feeling of the room and the common areas this was a great place to stay. Juan, who seemed to be on duty all the time, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. He had taken my reservation several months earlier over the phone. His courteousness... More

My wife and I visited for a short anniversary trip. The lodge was great. The staff was nice. And, we were near many of the things the area has to offer. Breakfast was included and very good. I will return.

A pet peeve of mine is a lodge with onerous cancellation penalties and high peak rates - at times when they are not full. It suggests financial desperation, or greediness. We recently stayed Sun, Mon, Tues nights. Only on Sunday night was this lodge more than half full. Another objection of mine is an additional charge whose only rationale is... More

Stayed here with the family back in July and overall had a great experience. The staff was great and very accommodating. The property is very nice and the brownies and cookies are a plus. The view of the cliff in the back is amazing and the breakfast is very good. I would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone that wants... More

This lodge is right in the mountains, 6 miles outside of New Paltz. It is a lovely lodge, with a spacious room. (4 of us stayed with a room with 2 beds) They provide a continental breakfast with home baked breads (ie: blueberry, banana bread). You can eat indoors, or outdoors surrounded by the cliff view and mountains. Cookies/muffins and... More

I first stayed here in 2011. The atmosphere was homey. Details were nice; warm, fresh cookies and a staff who were professional and helpful. Fast forward to 2015.

My organization recently held a staff retreat at Minnewaska Lodge. Our room overlooked the ridge of New Paltz, a perfect backdrop for stimulating new ideas and massive team building.

We booked a one night stay after hiking locally. It's a lodge and they twice it accordingly but at just about $ 200 a night it should be tighter. One pillow on our queen bed did not have a pillow case and we had to ask for it and put it on ourselves. Our first floor room off the lobby... More

The Lodge is one of the more comfortable places we have ever stayed. VERY comfortable bed. Great breakfast for preparing to hike or bike ride. Attentive and helpful staff. Cookies, popcorn, tea and coffee 24 hrs. S'mores it the evening. Beautiful building fits in with trees and soaring cliffs.
