There are a fair amount of things that are both positive and negative for this place. The view is great, staff were friendly, nice lodge feel, snacks left out, gas fire pits to relax by outside, and great location. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. However, we overlooked the parking lot by the front entrance and... More

We were fortunate enough to spend our 30th wedding anniversary together in this lovely lodge near Lake Minnewaska. The setting could not have been more beautiful, nor the lodge more cozy. The staff was friendly and made us feel this was our home away from home. The room was comfortable, the whole place had a friendly old-fashioned lodge-camp-in-the-woods feeling, just... More

The hotel is pretty conveniently located across from a German restaurant with a deli next door. The decor is "lodge"; it's clean and friendly. The rooms are a good size and the bedding and pillows very good. The bathroom is clean and semi modern with ample counter space, hot water and stocked with a hair dryer, shampoo and conditioner, liquid... More

This small lodge is designed to perfectly suit the upstate New York mountain history. The place is beautifully designed with wide open common spaces facing the beautiful cliff view, and the rooms are large and modern. Free Wifi, outdoor fire pits surrounded by Adirondack chairs, and a plentiful complementary continental breakfast make it easy to spend time here, and not... More

Our weekend at Minnewaska was great. From checking in to breakfast to the great comfortable feeling of the room and the common areas this was a great place to stay. Juan, who seemed to be on duty all the time, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. He had taken my reservation several months earlier over the phone. His courteousness... More

My wife and I visited for a short anniversary trip. The lodge was great. The staff was nice. And, we were near many of the things the area has to offer. Breakfast was included and very good. I will return.

A pet peeve of mine is a lodge with onerous cancellation penalties and high peak rates - at times when they are not full. It suggests financial desperation, or greediness. We recently stayed Sun, Mon, Tues nights. Only on Sunday night was this lodge more than half full. Another objection of mine is an additional charge whose only rationale is... More

(4 of us stayed with a room with 2 beds) They provide a continental breakfast with home baked breads (ie: blueberry, banana bread).
