Mohonk Mountain House
“A Fantastic Resort!”
This is a uniqye resort with so many activites and things to do. Being over 100 + years old the resort has done a great job of staying up to date but still stayikng with its heritage. The room was very well done but small. Views of the mountains were fantastic. Hiking to Sky Top was fun with awesome views of the resort and mountains. Meals are included with the stay - the Picnic was excellent. Dinners and breakfast were very good. Note- on TV but it was fun watching the silent movie screen from our room. Excellent spa, gardens and be sure to visit the "barn" with all its history. A unique get-a-way vacation in the mountains.
Unique Quality: History, activities, charm and mountain scenery. A unique and special place!
It is all inclusive so consider this when looking at the price.
Mohonk – or “lake in the sky” - is a sparkling wonder, tucked away at the top of the Shawangunk Ridge. Rock formations rise majestically above the water, framing our enchanting, 265-room Victorian castle. The sight of this sprawling architectural wonder never fails to thrill us. We explored the mountaintop resort toured gardens, went on the lake, through the Victorian Maze, enjoyed high tea on the porch, and delish buffet meals.
DECADENCE IN THE WOODS
Well what can I say about this resort, except absolutely phenomenal. I didn't get to stay here, its a bit pricey, but I was able to hike the trails and take a quick peek at the mountain house. The gate keeper was nice enough to let me in for an hour without paying the usual day pass fee, but don't hold your breath on each gate keeper being so kind hearted. If you can't stay the night, definitely pay the fee for a day pass and take advantage of the beautiful grounds

A Castle by a Lake...
We've yet to stay overnight at Mohonk - the rates are pretty steep. However, we have walked around the grounds and roamed the quiet hallways of the 251-room mansion. You can just come for lunch (there's a decent buffet, with beautiful mountain views from the dining room) and stay the day - even enjoy afternoon tea on the porch!
Unique Quality: Mohonk is unique - a hotel set high up in the mountains, overlooking a pristine lake. There are no telephones or TVs in the 19th century-era rooms - which for some, is the ultimate vacation.
You can hike up the trail overlooking the lake and even climb the tower at the top of the mountain (known as Sky Top, or Smiley Memorial Tower - it's an area landmark), for outstanding views of the Shawangunks.
Directions: Go through town and look for the tower on the mountain
