We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended it another night. It was a beautiful cliff view from our suite and enjoyed sitting on balcony and the back deck. The General manager, Eric was fantastic and doing an excellent job. All the staff was kind and knowledgeable about the local attractions. Due to COVID they can not go into your room to clean it daily which I didnt mind. They gave replacement sheets and towels if needed and truly I don’t change my linen at home on a daily. The location is great, close to the state park and close to New Paltz. The walls are thin and a neighboring room was up late but if you turn fan on, it creates white noise so problem was solved. The breakfast was super healthy and delicious. Overall I loved staying here and we plan on coming back again. It was just what we needed to relax for a long weekend

The location of this cute little lodge is perfect for all the area has to offer. The property is nice and they make good use of the backyard area which faces the Shawangunk mountain range with Adirondack chairs and fire pits. We also discovered some fun trails that you can access from the back of the property. They have a cozy common area with sofas and a wood burning stove, and it all fits in with the areas rustic upstate vibe...which is to be expected. That’s sort of where it ended for me though. The room was advertised as a “cliff view with deck.” The back of the building does indeed face the cliff, however, some of those rooms with decks have an obstructed view and actually face a wooded area. I was only able to see a very tiny portion of the cliff from my room which was on the end and that was only if I was standing on the edge of the deck. It wasn’t an issue for me as I live in the woods myself. A couple from Manhattan who is looking forward to the “cliff view” may be disappointed and therefore it shouldn’t be advertised as such. Maybe just a “room with a deck” would be more appropriate. You do pay a premium for these rooms. The deck, was nice to have. We didn’t take advantage of the fire pits which seems to be the big attraction because the chairs were pretty full each night and there were a lot of families with young children running around. We also saw a sign stating that you could not drink alcohol in c Now, we are in the middle of a pandemic so it’s possible that
