We enjoyed staying at the Minnewaska Lodge. We had a cliff view room with a deck, which I would recommend highly. The room was comfortable and clean with hairdryer, iron and ironing board and TV. We also enjoyed sitting in the great room in the evening. The great room is where breakfast is served from 8-10AM every day. The continental breakfast was very good (the baked good were too good!). The lodge provides coffee and tea all day, which is nice. They have a front porch and back deck, but it was too cold for us to sit out there for this visit. It must be lovely to sit out there during the warmer months. The view of the Shawangunk Ridge was our view from the deck of our room. A very beautiful view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My husband and I felt very welcome! It is about 5 miles away from New Paltz where there are restaurants and shops. Also close by is the Minnewaska State Park with Lake Minnewaska, which we visited and were surprised there still was snow there (the state park is a little drive up the mountain). Since we are residents of the state and my husband is over 62 we were admitted to the state park for free. That was a nice surprise! There are other natural locations to visit, as well, but we didn't have time to visit them.
