~Jasmynne Shaye  June 7th, 2015

My husband Jim, our son Matthew and I stayed with you last weekend until Tuesday.  It was our first time visiting, though Jim had wanted to for a long time.  We just wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.  Brent, the team in the lodge and dining room were really great.  The accommodations were very nice as was the food.  We enjoyed the great conditions on the trails and, in particular, thought Paul at the Nordic Center to be a great ambassador for your business - taking Matthew on a short loop while Jim and I got ready to tackle the trails, as well as inviting Jim for a skate out to the bus pick-up on our last day.
We look forward to our return to Garnet Hill!

Dear Don & Mindy,
Thank you again for another wonderful time at Garnet Hill!  We introduced my brother and sister-in-law to Garnet Hill Lodge and they loved it.  We'll all be back. 
~Susan Wood, 2/26/2015

Don & Mindy,
This is our second visit, The first was in 2012, not long after you purchased the Lodge.  I just wanted to thank you for purchasing and maintaining this property for XC Skiing.  I'm sure it is a huge challenge to keep it going, but it is a very special place, and we greatly appreciate all you have done to keep it that way. 
The trails are expertly groomed, the food is delicious, the staff is friendly and helpful and the lodge has a warm and welcoming feeling.  Thanks so much!
Charles and Kathy White, 2/12/2015
P.S. Special thanks to Don for the piano music Tuesday at dinner!

Had a great time.  Can't wait to come back next year!  Thank you

Dear Mindy & Don,
Scott and I want to thank you both for a wonderful experience at your lodge.  The food was outstanding; including breakfast, lunch & especially, dinner!  Everyone was gracious and kind.  And most helpful when we had a question.  Loved Don's music in the evening.  This trip will be one of our best vacation memories.  We would love to come back again sometime.
Our best to you and all of the staff.

Lori & Ward Stakowitz, 1/26/2015

First time staying at the lodge (skied Garnet Hill last year) and we had a great time.  The staff was extremely friendly and courteous - room was rustic and quant with a comfy bed and a hot shower.  Very much needed after a long day on the trails.  Definitely will come back, keep up the good work.
Julie Dunn, 1/11/2015

We had prime rib for supper.  Delicious!  Everything without exception was great.  I'm sure we could find no better enjoyment anywhere else!
G&M Pound, 1/11/2015

~Vaughn and Colleen Anna, 11/21-23/2014

Your 'twig' furniture is breathtaking, museum quality!  All taken care of so beautifully.  Such a treat to be surrounded by it.
We loved sitting by the fire.  Gorgeous fireplace.  Thank you for coffee & water 24/7, a luxury when at a lodge.  Dinner was delicious- cheeze rolls great!  Lasagne heavenly.  Patty took lovely care of us.  Congratulations on what you have done here.  Thank you.  You made 'coming home' to the Adirondacks a memorable experience.

~Jean and Frank Koros,  8/2/2014

We suggest that you change nothing.  Donna, Bonnie and Mary were wonderful and worth their weight in Gold!  We will definitely be back.  Especially during X-Country Ski season.
~Kathy and Don Glatz, 6/25/2014

Don and Mindy, It has been 3 years since our last visit here.  Shouldn't have waited so long.  Great job, very relaxing and the staff is excellent!  See you later this summer!

~The Dockerys  3/26/2014

As always, we had a wonderful stay, in the coziest, classiest, most gracious and friendly inn we know.  The staff is always friendly, always helpful.  It is a sign of great management to attract and keep such a stellar crew - so kudos to you for Garnet Hill!
~Elizabeth Searle, 3/13/14

One suggestion, You could provide me with a free room winter and summer :)   Very, very pleasant stay.  Thank you all - staff and owners and owner's father Dennis.
~Art Barrett

Dear Mindy and Don,
May the Lord bless you now and always.  We're so happy for you!  Thank you for a wonderful time.  Lord willing, we'll see you in October.  You're doing a great job!  You have a great staff.  All were very nice and helpful.  We were happy to see Mary B. again and hope to see Bethany, Tatiana and everyone else in Oct. and Dennis, too!  It was nice to to see Mary Jane also.  The chefs delivered the food warm and displayed beautifully.  I'm rushing and there were others who were nice but I can't remember their names.  Can't wait for October!
Our love, ~Jim & Marion, 2/28/2014

Gorgeous location, charming inn, great skiing!  Thanks for everything.  Wish we had known about this place sooner!
~Bill  2/11/2014

Great time.  Loved Rm 8.  Service & Food excellent.  Best of luck Don & Mindy.  We will be back.
~Ellen Gaynor, 2/12/2014

Don & Mindy,
We had a wonderful time here on our first visit.  You have a beautiful place here.  The food was amazing as were the trails for skiing.  Everyone was so kind & friendly.  I am sure we'll be back again. Thank you.
~Rob & Natalie Clark, 2/5/2014

Thank you for a lovely stay.  We enjoyed our time here very much and everybody was gracious, especially Brent.  We love that dinner is included in our room and think that should be clearer on the website.  I think more people would come if they realized room, breakfast, ski pass and dinner was included in the price in winter.
~Natalie Coleman, 2/1/2014

I stayed here six years ago.  It was pleasant and that is why I returned.  Your trails are very enjoyable and in good shape.  The room, lodge, food are all very pleasing.
Keep up the good work,
~Rich Wells 2/13/14

Love all the very tasteful ADK-y themed improvements!  Very, Very Impressive.
Love, Love, coming here...(annually).  Thanks for all your hard work.
~Kathleen O'Connor, 2/26/2014

We truly enjoyed our stay!  What stood out most was the way everyone on staff was so friendly and accommodating, making you feel very welcomed and comfortable.
Thanks for a wonderful time.  See you next year.

 I'm sorry to miss you Mindy - I had to get on the road - but mabe you could email me the Swedish cookie recipe - I would so appreciate it.  Many thanks for inviting me to your family dinner, I enjoyed every minute, especially the banter going back and forth.
