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

My 4 days stay was great. Great staff, very helpful and always happy to do their job. This lodge is just located in a very gorgeous spot. Amazing environment overlooking very beautiful mountains. Very relaxing and rejuvenating to just sit and enjoy or even hike the mountains. Will most definitely recommend.

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...
