My husband and I stayed in the Victorian Suite for 3 nights in this 1869 built quirky castle. He fell in love with EVERYTHING - the decor w/ rocking chairs on surrounding porches, gorgeous views, fresh cool mountain air, hikes, paddle boats, the lake view from our terrace, the 3 meal plan, the StoryTeller and Pun Lecturer in the evenings, the Gardens, and NEVER wanted to leave. No phones. No TVs. Internet is in a public area. I prefer something a bit more renovated. When we first walked in there was an "old antique" odor that I could do without. Our room was very pretty if you like Victorian, but dark. There is a toilet/ bathtub room but the sink was oddly & inconveniently across the way by the front door. Large closets.. The room has a very nice scent from the wood burning fireplace. Fresh flowers from the garden. The terrace rail was a bit rusty. The dining room food & buffet was delicious with a beautiful view & excellent service. It was like being on a cruise ship with an Activity Sheet every day offering things to do but many people spent their days reading on those rocking chairs. Gorgeous dark wood and antique lighting everywhere. Very ecologically-oriented. And we met the nicest and friendliest people.

My family has been going to Mohonk for at least 4 generations. I will
say up front that it isn't for everybody. Mohonk maintains its roots in the basic Quaker philosophy. However, Mohonk is modernizing and changing in ways that I approve.

First: Their motto is "go slowly and quietly." They do at times have some exuberant fun, particularly during the 4th of July. Usually the Mohonk experience is one founded on a close and patient relation with nature and the environment.

Second: The accomodations vary a lot. I've stayed in what is probably
the smallest roon in the place (7th floor across the the elevators) and the best room in the place (suite next door to the above room with 2 balconies and views in both directions - our honeymoon suite). Study the room map, talk to the booking agent. Don't forget this place was built in stages starting around 1876 - not everything is new, straight, plumb or level.

Third: Formal dinner is still an event where the men are expected to wear a coat - not all year, but mostly. Grace and form is still a goal there. More informal dining is downstairs. Both dinning rooms have views that are beyond immagination during any season.

Fourth: Mohonk is changing. You can now get booze at a downstaris bar. Don't bother looking for the disco or the sports bar - there isn't one.

Mohonk is installing AC in their rooms. First with window units and moving onto more aesthetic modern built ins. I have been writing the management to make sure the water chiller units are either massively removed from the Hotel or use geothermal so that no junk noise ruins the joy of sitting on the porch at night listening to the wind in the trees and the call of the birds. Still no TVs in the rooms (thank God), but now Bose radios. Their SPA is first class. While most of Mohonk is Prifixe, the spa services are not, but competitive in price. The pool, no charge, is deligthful. As with the rest of new Mohonk construction, the work by Storm King contractors is beyond first class.

The change I appreciate the most is that Mohonk is developing its family oriented program, rather than being focused almost solely on the older, more sedate crowd.

Unforturnately, another change is that a huge part of their business is conferences. Insiders tell me that the days of folks staying a month or the whole summer (as they did when my father was a boy) are gone. The conference attendees naturally have a different focus to their time at Mohonk.

Fifth: Have I said how wonderful the naturalist walks are? Ann Guenther and Carol (LNU) are articulate, knowledgeable, easy going, and love to share the special wonders of Mohonk. Make friends, invite
them to lunch! Ask Ann how Brooke farm is going.

I'll spare you any more numbers. I take my family to Mohonk for its near total escape. Coming off the mountain is a deliberate act for us. My son will spend part of his summers in the rocks, woods, flora,
and fauna of the massive preserve. We have enjoyed ourselves in all seasons, even when the weather doesn't cooperate. Mohonk isn't for everyone. It is, however, my most treasured and favorite spot I've been in all my travels - Germany, Korea, Canada, Mexico, Caribean, Oman. During my mid tour leave from Iraq next fall, I intend to spend
it with my family at Mohonk.

Remember "go slowly and quietly" - nature and our inner selves have a lot to teach us if we take the time to listen.

This property was rated #1 US spa by conde nast. For the price they should be able to do better. The spa is fantastic. The staff are friendly and professional. But the whole resort needs to do better. The views are fabulous and the grounds are gorgeous
But and a big but: The front desk staff were no entirely helpful and were not aware of some amenities on the property. The carpeting in the hallways was dingy. For $600+/night the carpets should be spotless. The shower in the bathroom did not fully work. The toilet didn't flush well.
The buffet lunch looked tasty. When serving carved veal, lamb and duck, the meat should be butter tender if only providing butter knives. Otherwise, sharp knives would be nice.
We walked into the game room on the 2nd floor of the hotel. It was not very inviting- musty and dark.
So, I would look for some where else to stay in the region.

My wife and I were engaged and married at Mohonk in 2003. We have stayed a few times over the years and more often go up for the day to enjoy the grounds. This review is of our most recent stay, which was to celebrate our 40th birthdays. It is very expensive, so you must be prepared for that otherwise it can hinder your experience. We went up on a Friday afternoon, arriving around 1:30pm for the weekend. We were able to get into our room at 2:15. We had a mountain facing King Room with a fire place. The bed and pillows were both new and absolutely fantastic! We actually ordered our family the same brand pillows online while we were there - they got here yesterday and are just as good as at Mohonk! We went snowshoeing up the Sky Top tower which was more challenging than we expected but a fun experience. we also went Ice Skating and had a nice hike around the lake, through some deep snow. The Carriage Lounge was great to have a drink before dinner each night. Both dinners were really, really good with a good variety of selections. We got to have 1 dinner in the main dining room and the second downstairs. It was Mohonk Thinks You Can Dance Weekend, so there were dance lessons on Saturday. We took the Cha-Cha, Salsa, and East Coast Swing classes, which were a lot of fun. There was also a dance party each night in the Lake Lounge. I would have preferred for the dance parties to be in the parlor room for the additional space but, not a big deal. Shawn the program director did a great job with the weekend theme. Then there was the Spa.......We knew that this was gonna be a highlight, as we had been there once before. We had a 75 min couples massage and it was just phenomenal. Definitely one of the best massages I've ever had. In the room. I loved having a fire burning all the time, instead of having the tv on. Guest Services had to deliver additional wood to our room more than once. To finish on the food, breakfast is really good, lunch is just good, and the Sunday brunch is Amazing! We will definitely be back to Mohonk. I recommend that everyone visits Mohonk, if not overnight then just for a meal and a walk around the grounds

We’re so glad that you liked them enough to purchase a set for your home… enjoy!

It is always hard to rate Mohonk, as the natural beauty tends to overwhelm any negatives. My wife and I have stayed there around 30 times, dating back to the early 1990's. We arrives at about 11 am on a Sunday to find a huge traffic mess at the gatehouse, due in large part to the number of people arriving to buy day passes for the grounds. (They are then bussed up to the Picnic Lodge, and can hike around the various trails). The day pass parking lot was completely full, and the staff put out a sign that day hiking was now closed - probably upsetting anyone else arriving after that. The fall leaves were close to peak in color, which probably explained the large number of people attempting to get day passes. We had made a reservation almost two months in advance to get one of the last available rooms. The room was very comfortable, with views of the lake and Skytop Tower. As others have commented, the walls are thin, and we heard people talking in the two rooms next to us several times. We had a "bargain mid week rate", but that does not include the mandatory 12% gratuity and taxes, which all added up to about 20% more than the quoted room rate. Everyone reading this should keep in mind that this is a very expensive place, and room rates of 600+ before the added fees are typical. In addition to the day pass people, there were a couple of conferences at the hotel, plus several busses of people arriving for the day (come before lunch, have lunch, and enjoy the house and grounds, then leave late afternoon). Most of the bussed in people appear to be foreign tourists from Asia. All of this created very crowded conditions at lunch, in the house, and around the immediate grounds. In addition, on two of the nights, some of the conference people were very noisy (after apparently having had plenty to drink!, disturbing other guests). Mohonk is an expensive place to maintain, and I am sure they like the money they get from these conferences and day visitors, but it does somewhat destroy the charm of the place a bit. Fortunately, as soon as you get about a half mile from the house on the carriage roads, there are few people walking about. We did have to help three Asian tourists who had walked out from the house, and were totally lost (my suggestion to Mohonk is to also print the maps in Chinese - and perhaps in Spanish, as well, as there are also quite a few Spanish speaking visitors).
As usual, we had a great time hiking the carriage roads and trails. Every time we go there, I get out to the views at Skytop and Eagle Cliff, and decide again that maybe the place is worth the price you pay. The breakfast and lunch buffets were fine, and lunch included some items aimed at the Asian day guests. In the past, dinner has been our least favorite meal, and that proved true again. The service was simply unacceptably slow, and we had entrees that were both undercooked and overcooked. On our second night, three people at tables near us sent their food back to the kitchen because it was undercooked. We gave up on desert on another night because the service was so slow. It appeared to us that the combination of overnight guests and a large number of conference guests all trying to eat at the same time simply overwhelmed the kitchen and wait staff. Mohonk really needs to think about this. During the summer and some holidays, there is a dinner buffet offered, with an option for formal dining in a separate downstairs dining room, and I really think Mohonk should consider doing this year round.

Another positive is the ability to have a drink on the front porch and look out at the Catskill Mountains. I always enjoy this.

All-in-all, we enjoyed our visit - especially the hiking and views, despite the crowds and poor dinner service. Given the expense, we typically only stay once a year now versus the two and sometimes three times a year in the past. So, if you can afford it, and are willing to put up with sometimes crowded conditions, and the dinner service, this remains a special place.

My answer was cut off before I finished… I did see tray tables in our closet but the rooms are a bit cramped for in room dining in my opinion during the cold season. I suppose you could eat outside on the balcony when it is warmer. I think that the management is highly cognizant of precautions during Covid from my perspective working in a healthcare setting.
