We have traveled the world and have stayed at a myriad of 5 star properties worldwide. Yet despite the fact that the Mohonk Mountain House is celebrating its' 145th year of operation
it has lost none of its' charm and vitality (and importance).
We have hiked the property in the past on day trips, but our visit this past weekend was the first time we actually stayed the night in a Lakeside Room.
We are very picky travelers, and we like to think we have sophisticated palates as well, and the MMH exceeded our expectations and then some.
All our meals were excellent, the dinner we had was particularly impressive. we would recommend that dinner guests opt for the Ala Carte Dinner as opposed to a buffet-style dinner.
5 star hotels worldwide that we've frequented could take a serious lesson from the level of service in every category that MMH exhibited and carried out.
Their staff is so well trained, gregarious and just know how to handle guests with both respect
and what feels like true caring. The staff to guest ratio was staggeringly high.
The grounds, the trails, the Lake, the views, all beyond stunning. So much to do here - so little time. TV - not in any rooms but one - THE TV Room ! We never stopped there. We loved that ! The no-TV in room policy forces guests to roam and have adventures.
On our day of departure we took a small hike with Michael, a naturalist (on staff) who really seems to not only know his stuff, but he showed us all sorts of things we never knew about trees, birds and bugs. He was a highlight of our visit.
Our time at Mohonk Mountain House was like stepping back in time when people who came to this amazing place enjoyed the simpler things and really knew how to maximize their experiences and enjoyed true hospitality.
What an awesome visit we had.
