My two teenage daughters and I had a wonderful long weekend here. So hard to find a place that everyone likes, but we loved this lodge. Spacious, beautiful, comfortable. I could have my early morning breakfast on the patio, the girls could sleep in without a care. This is normally over our budget, but we found a great deal and... More

I recently stayed for an overnight get away. Staff was very nice and helpful. Beautiful views of the Shawangunks. Far enough out of town to be peaceful but close enough to go out for dinner. Rooms were clean, and the bed was super comfy.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel twice and have had a great time each stay. The Hotel is big enough to provide privacy, but cozy enough to feel like a bed and breakfast. The Staff is super-friendly and the rooms are extremely clean.

Upon entering M.L. I was greeted by a very nice host. He was almost overly friendly, but definetly not fake. A very genuine person that seemed to really care about giving any and all advice of the area. Whether it was hiking in the area, dining, or any other activites close to the surrounding area, he was very helpful. This... More

Let me preface my review by saying I am the Chief Financial Officer of a midtown NYC firm. A portion of our business is event hosting with groups that range from 20 people to several thousand. Further more, sometimes by nature, CFO’s are rare to compliment, thus me writing this truly shows how impressed we were with the Minnewaska Lodge.... More

My boyfriend and I just came back from spending a weekend at the Minnewaska Lodge. We were both pleasantly surprised. It is in a beautiful secluded area, and the views were perfect. The staff was extremely nice and upgraded our room for no extra charge!!!!! They helped us to plan activities and gave us great ideas for things to do... More

My fiancé and I have stayed here on three occasions. The pros are: - Accessibility to hiking without having to pay Mohonk prices - A little more upscale than your basic motel - Excellent morning breakfast - Great German restaurant in walking distance for dinner The cans are: - The walls are paper thin. The couple above us argued all... More

What should make a lodge different from a motel? The answer for me is everything. Exceptionally beautiful surroundings inside and out, an exceptional, caring, able, and knowledgeable, staff. A sense of comfort and grace without pretense. Minnewaska Lodge is such a place. I put up my extended family at Minnewaska Lodge for a late Thanksgiving celebration. Their ages spanned from... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Minnewaska Lodge in the Hudson Valley. What a great place! The staff was so nice, from the time we called to make the reservation until we left. The Lodge is beautiful, the room was large and very comfortable and they serve an excellent breakfast for their guests. What a nice touch. Great selection... More

Beautiful place. Our room was great, with a very comfortable bed -- the only issue was that the wireless signal was very weak at our end of the building. Excellent breakfast in a comfortable lounge area. The staff was extremely helpful -- we were directed to two great hikes. And not far from New Paltz, if you're looking for funky... More
