I absolutely love this lodge. The setting is so peaceful and relaxing. We love everything from the breakfast, to the surroundings, to hiking on the Mohonk Preserve and relaxing by the fire pit at night. Make your reservations way in advance because this place books up quickly in the summer and during the peak fall foliage season. We even enjoy... More

Minnewaska Lodge is a clean, comfortable, rustic and laid back spot that my family and I have enjoyed for years. The location is excellent, being a short ride to downtown New Paltz, the quaint, smaller town of Rosendale and the entrances to Minnewaska Park and Mohonk Preserve. We enjoy bringing our bikes and riding one of the beautiful park's carriage... More

My husband drove up here for our 10th anniversary. I prepaid for my first night. We booked a room with a forest view. Our room view was of the parking lot with trees behind it. I went to get in bed and there were tiny hairs all over. So gross!!!! My husband tried to brush it off like they were... More

At a warm inviting lodge with friendly staf and a spectacular view. Enjoy the fresh cookies at the check in desk and make your way to your room with a view. Feast on a fresh healthy breakfast before heading out on a hike in the local parks. There is a trail for everyone.

We returned after a few years to stay at Minnewaska Lodge for 3 nights, and were not disappointed. Although our cliffside view room was overbooked for the first night, the alternative forest side room that was offered (along with apologies and a very nice discount) was quiet, comfortable and we decided to stay there all three nights. Our stay was... More

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
