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

At the time of this review I have not stayed at the lodge, but will be vacationing there in two weeks. I write this to acknowledge and compliment Becky on her excellent customer service skills in locating an additional room for us. Now we wont have to leave the lodge. Thank you, Becky!

We are lifetime new Yorkers and just learned of this crisp, clean, comfortable gem. Proprietors Sara and Becky welcome you like family. The room we had was spacious, immaculate, and quiet. The setting with its mountain backdrop and rolling green lawn are majestic and pure pleasure while you enjoy toasting marshmallows at the outdoor fire pits and sitting in colorful... More

We recently spent two nights at the Lodge with two other couples mid-week. The rooms were okay but the view from our outside sitting area was stupendous! The location of the lodge made it easy to go to the state parks as well as the city of New Paltz in order to explore the shops and restaurants. The lodge provided... More

We honeymooned here in July 2013 and ended up extending our trip 1 night. We loved the fresh breakfasts each morning and reading on the Adirondacks chairs outside, and enjoying relaxing by the fire pits by night. We bought marshmallows and found sticks for roasting, and when we returned to visit the property this year, the Lodge had begun putting... More

The hotel is definitely clean and the staff was nice. I asked for a quiet room, but was put in a room above and next to where breakfast was served each morning, so not quiet at all. My room also had no balcony, so I could not enjoy the view while sipping some wine, without having to mingle with the... More

We have stayed here a few times given the proximity to the Gunks and the Mountain Brauhaus, but the last stay was our final. My husband fell ill and I called to try and change our reservation to another date. Where other hotels in the area would accommodate this unforeseen circumstance (such as Mohonk Mountain House or Emerson), Minnewaska Lodge... More

A great place to stay when visiting Mohonk/New Paltz area. Just 5 min from downtown New Paltz and closer to Monhonk and Minnewaska state park. The hotel is right at the foot of the Gunks with a great view and plenty of space to enjoy it with a nice outside deck and firepits. Much more affordable option that Mohonk Mountain... More

Well just got back yesterday from one of the most relaxed and recharged vacations ever. This a wonderful piece of paradise. You feel like your in the middle of no where but no fear, the town of New Platz is just a 10 min. drive down the road. This Lodge is very clean and comfortable, and the Staff are very... More

We were greeted warmly and professionally upon arrival. We were given an upgrade to a nicer room, only because front desk clerk was feeling magnanimous! Very, very nice to do so. All of the staff was friendly and helpful regarding questions about local hikes, breakfast, use of their computer (I had to do some unexpected work). We loved the breakfast... More
