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

We had an amazing week long retreat at the Minnewaska Lodge. If you are looking for a place for an inspiring, personal corporate retreat, this place is amazing. We made full use of their back lawn with its comfortable lawn chairs, cozy fire pits and a great view of this epic cliff face that drops down into a beautiful forest.... More

The Minnewaska Lodge sits in an amazing location at the base of the cliffs. The place looks great and the staff is nice. Our only problem was that the walls were thin and the place felt a little antiseptic/sterile.

A truly magnificent setting for this well-kept lodge adjacent to Minnewaska State Park. Would love to visit again! Two fire pits on their back lawn surrounded by forest and an epic cliff face. Management is top notch and keeps this place in great shape.

Just spent an amazing week at the Minnewaska. It was incredible to sit in an adirondack by a fire pit and watch the sun reflect off the cliffs of the 'Gunks overhead. An amazing place to retreat and reflect. Friendly staff, clean, modern rooms, and great facilities.
