We honeymooned here in July 2013 and ended up extending our trip 1 night. We loved the fresh breakfasts each morning and reading on the Adirondacks chairs outside, and enjoying relaxing by the fire pits by night. We bought marshmallows and found sticks for roasting, and when we returned to visit the property this year, the Lodge had begun putting out marshmallows and sticks for guests! They also have delicious, freshly baked cookies out 24/7, which is dangerous! The room was comfortable and we were very near to great hiking and swimming (Minnewaska State Park, swimming holes on hiking trails), as well as cute New Paltz and the amazing Mountain Brauhaus restaurant. Very friendly staff.
