Nestled in the woods, yet convenient to RT 299 and 44/55, this gem of a ledge is convenient and clean. You will receive personalized service and restuarant recommendations from Patrick and the other staff members. Rooms are small, but the sitting area outside adds to the overall ambience. The bath amenities: Kiss My Face, are very nice; the TV large... More

We went to Minnewaska Lodge to enjoy a weekend of hiking to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our only knowledge of the place was what we read on the web. What a GEM! Patrick recommended hiking trails that were superb. The accommations were great: king size bed, deck with a view of the cliffs, wi-fi, and flat screen TV. The lodge... More

This is the second time we've stayed here for a quick weekend away from the city. A friendly, low-key, beautifully set spot, I recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at Minnewaska Lodge the weekend of April 13, 2012. We had originally considered the Mohonk Mountain House but decided to find more reasonably priced accomodations. We were so pleased with this lodge! The property is absolutely gorgeous and serene, nestled beneath the Shawangunk Cliff. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful; making restaurant suggestions and... More

Just there a couple of weeks ago to rest after hanging around busy NY city. Outstanding for piece, comfort, beauty. Wonderful friendly service, beautiful surroundings, delightful home made foods and comfortable rooms with patios facing the hills. My most restful time since returning from Dal Lake in Kashmir, India.

My wife and I have stayed at Minnewaska Lodge several times, and have enjoyed it every time. The fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, home-made granola and the rest of the wonderful breakfast spread, the immaculately-kept lodge and rooms, comfortable beds, fitness center, friendly and accommodating staff, and the glorious views of the Shawangunk Cliffs make Minnewaska Lodge a uniquely special place...

Minnewaska Lodge was a fantastic place to stay. The entrance into the building was a welcome sight with my late night arrival. The rooms are simply decorated but very clean and eco-friendly. The beds are extremely comfortable and the lodge was very quiet at night. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. The breakfast they provided was... More
