Perfect Getaway.
I took my husband for a quick getaway for his birthday. It's a family run establishment, with a personal touch. There was calming music and treats, tea at check in. The service was friendly and welcoming, and the room was clean and comfortable, with a stunning view! We went for a hike in Minnewaska State Park during the day, and then we walked across the street from the lodge to the Mountain Brauhaus for a delicious dinner! Perfect night!

Not worth the money.
For $500+ a night I expected more than a mediocre room and a haphazard buffet breakfast. Beautiful view of the cliff, gorgeous location, nice staff. Try the German restaurant across the street!
