Planning a trip of 6-8 adults to visit Lake Minnewaska and Minnewaska State Park Preserve and do some hiking at Mohonk, maybe some golf at a public course if there is time -- but don't wait to stay at Minnewaska Lodge [three rooms at Minnewaska Lodge would run at least $1200 for 2 nights, which is beyond our budget] or Mohonk [also too expensive]. What are our alternatives? New Paltz maybe? House rental?
Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
