We had a room with a fantastic view of the Gunks! Although there were a few stains on the carpet, the room was very comfortable and cozy. The grounds were full of beautiful purple and yellow flowers in mid August. The staff was friendly and the breakfast offered a mix of healthy options for me plus quiche and sausage for... More

We were looking for a more rustic place to stay when visiting our children. We found Minnewaska Lodge, read trip advisor reviews and decided to try it. We were extremely pleased with the total look of the lodge. Very cozy, well taken care of, real cabin, lodge feel and our room with a spectacular view and balcony was very comfortable.... More

We stayed here for 1 night only but it's a perfect location for us since we hiked the Gertude's Nose the next day. The location is very quiet. From our balcony, we could see the cliffs of the Gunks. Room was clean and quite spacious. The breakfast was very continental but the view of the breakfast area was spectacular. The... More

We couldn't have asked for a better setting or a more welcoming experience. I had to move our reservation a few times, and they were so accommodating and helpful with that. The lodge has such a lovely natural setting and has been decorated in a way that complements it perfectly. There were additional lovely touches, like fresh chocolate chip cookies... More

Minnewaska Lodge is nestled up against the cliff face, with beautiful views. Our room was quite spacious and comfortable. The balcony looked out over the back gardens and cliff face. Daily breakfast was quite good, although it didn't officially start until 8 AM and we're up and moving quite a bit earlier than that. There's coffee/tea available all day and... More

Nestled in the woods of Mid-Upstate New York, this little piece of heaven is not too far from anywhere. Yet, far enough to be away from it all if you want. Drive 10-15 minutes from the Lodge and be in the hills, woods or golf course, up to you. Staff is more than accommodating. I have a Tesla and Ziazetta... More
