We are a hard working couple and we've been looking for the right place to get away to for years. We finally found it at Minnewaska Lodge! Very quiet, understated, away from the crowds. High quality comforts in the room, nice views, friendly staff and no-nonsense hospitality. We deeply rested and relaxed and definitely will go back for more. In... More

This place is wonderful! It was a great surprise to see how upscale everything was and the offers of free coffee and fruit all day long are so enjoyable. The beds are very comfortable and all facilities excellent. I particularly enjoyed the outside setting with the camp fires at night. Its a very beautiful place with lovely view. I recommend... More

Our trip this year took us back to Minnewaska Lodge and it was beyond all our expectations. The staff was excellent and the room was beyond all our expectations. From all the great views to the gracious staff, we will always stay again and again. Book early. Special thanks to Karen and Patrick as they went beyond and still went... More

Such a great place to stay! The view was amazing! We could have sat out back all day and night. The fire pits were great! Room was fine, nothing amazing about it, but it was clean and very the bed was very comfortable. The coffee and home baked cookies all day were a nice touch. The breakfast was not hot,... More

We had a wonderful stay at Minnewaska Lodge. In fact, after booking and staying one night, the next morning at breakfast we decided to stay another night, which I was told happened often there. I'm not surprised. The property is very nice, especially the back, with its views of the face of a mountain, rocking chairs, and gas fire pits... More

We wanted to get out of the city for a few nights to celebrate an anniversary. Just an hour and a half drive to the Minnewaska lodge! We took some friends advice to not stay at the overpriced Mohonk Mountain house and we were very happy to have taken it. The king bed was super comfy and the room perfectly... More

This was our 4th stay at Minnewawka Lodge over the years and once again we left happy. The rooms are neat and up-to-date, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the setting is divine. It was a full house at the lodge but it didn't feel like it. The time we spent on site was serene and peaceful.

We really liked this lodge. Our room was adequately sized, reasonably furnished and most importantly the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The view out the window to the cliff was lovely to wake up to. The price for a room is a bit steep, costing about $230 when all is said and done, but it included a nice breakfast... More

The only good thing I can say about our stay at the Minnewewaska Lodge is that it's in a pretty setting. To begin, our room was small & mediocre for a nightly rate of $225+. As other reviewers noted, the place has no soundproofing. We were kept awake by the boisterous people in the room above us. Worst of all,... More
