First I must say that the rooms at the Minnewaska Lodge are not sound proof. We could hear the couple in the room above us "getting busy" and it was just really creepy...I mean I get that we're in a lodge and there are other people staying there but I don't need to feel like I'm in their room! Also, the water took FOREVER to heat up, like seriously 15 minutes, I was beginning to think that there was never going to be hot water and almost got a cold shower. That being said, the lodge is very nice with really comfortable beds and we had a great view of the cliffs from our private deck. The lobby was cute with a fireplace with pillows and couches to cuddle up on. There were also two fire pits out back with adirondack chairs. The girl at the front desk could have been a little more welcoming but we figured she was just bored because there were only a couple of other rooms booked the night we were there (which made us wonder why we were rooming right underneath another couple when there were plenty of other available rooms) but that's neither here nor there. If you're looking for a beautiful place to stay in the wilderness and don't mind possibly hearing everything your neighbors are saying, this is your place!
