The grounds are amazing and really set the mood for a wonderful getaway.
My stay was over a year ago, I now live near the beach in Florida but I still find myself wanting to go back for a visit! The grounds are beautiful and serene and I couldn't imagine any season being spent here any better than the next.
I chose this place for my first bed and breakfast experience because it wasn't too "lacey" and "hoity toity" looking and was close to mohonk and lake minnewaska. The rooms were comfy and clean and had such sweet touches.
Judy and her husband were more than helpful with directions and neat places to go and even helped with phone calls when our cellphones faltered.
The breakfast was more than worth getting up for rather than sleeping, I can still smell the fire and taste the amazing treats including those cookies they keep stocked!
My personal favorite is the hammock down by the water, I was asleep in five minutes!
I really really recommend this place, especially if mohonk house is too rich for your tastes or you just want a private, romantic and cozy place to spend a weekend.
