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

We have stayed at the Minnewaska Lodge twice before this past weekend over the past 5 years. Our first 2 visits we were very impressed with cleanliness, great service and basically no complaints.

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

Ive been trying to book online for 2 days and call ALL afternoon. It seems like the gentleman I spoke with is at a call center in India. He didn't even know what resort I was calling about. They just keep putting me on hold, giving bogus excuses and hanging up. Has anyone ever experienced this? This seems very sketchy!

Loved the fire pits, location to the Gunks for hiking and proximity to Mountain Brauhaus for our girls getaway. Rooms were ok, but the suite was severely lacking. The pull out couch was in sad shape. Happily we found areobeds in the closet. As if they knew....breakfast was surprisingly good. The whole place needs a good dusting/vacuuming. The cobwebs I... More
