My husband and I (with another couple) just spent three days here and found it delightful. After hiking the trails, biking, golfing, kayaking, etc. sitting on the porch with a cup of tea or a drink was the perfect way to end the day. Abe in the Carriage Lounge made me the absolute best strawberry mojito!!. The views were magnificent. Everyone, including the staff and even people attending work conferences, seemed to be relaxed and enjoying themselves. We were very pleased with our mountain view room. It was very clean and the bathroom was modern. Indulged in numerous spa services which were all fantastic and very professional. Didn't know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Will be going back during the winter.

Room Tip: Both the mountain and lake side offer lovely views just make sure you are on the third floor or above due to pedestrian noise on the lower levels.

I have stayed as a guest for the weekend once and done many day trips to the Mohonk Mountain House. It is not cheap, but there is something for almost every budget.

The least expensive way to see the Mohonk property is to purchase a $20 day pass, which will allow you to hike the grounds, but not enter the house itself. It's well worth hiking, there are plenty of trails and going up to the tower is an adventure if you do the "Lemon Squeeze" (a rock scramble/hike that is challenging, especially for ample-bosomed women like myself). The views are outstanding, especially if you visit on a clear, sunny day. The gardens they maintain are beautiful and are very popular spots for weddings.

The next step up is to make a reservation for lunch. Last I did it was about $45 per person, but the food is served buffet style and is really good. You also get to tour around the house, which is filled with historical photographs. The two little gift shops offer some unique items, as well as souvenirs and clothing. At 4pm they serve tea and cookies, I HIGHLY recommend the mountain house blend, it's very tasty. The house has two porches filled with rocking chairs, just sitting and enjoying the tea, watching the boaters, or perhaps feeding the fish can make a very relaxing day.

Lastly you can stay as a guest. Expect to spend around $300 a night for a small room, but if I recall, meals are completely included, so it's not as bad. You can play mini-golf, rent a boat, go on a guided horseback ride, swim, and more. They added a spa in recent years that is very lovely, but it's not as rustic as the rest of the house.

There's also plenty to do in the surrounding area - New Paltz is a college, artsy town with some very good restaurants and fun places to shop, and there are several wineries that offer tastings. A lovely area to visit.

Lots of people have chimed in on this place. Suffice it to say that if you like an old-time feel, but really, really nice place, this is for you. Don't expect Disneyland. But expect a spectacular nature setting, better than acceptable food, excellent staff, fantastic spa, and just a generally slower pace. There were lots of families when I was there and they all seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. I didn't give it 5 stars because it is quite pricey, and some of the rooms are old and need updating. Our room however, seemed like we were the first people to stay in it since it was renovated, so they are doing the work that needs to be done. Overall, I would highly recommend it. Just know what you are getting in to. It's not your typical hotel/resort -- and that's a good thing!

Room Tip: Our room was in the wing that had been the boys' school. That wing was recently renovated and is in great shape.

Loved this place! Found it online... And we all know photographs sometimes lie, but it was amazing and we plan to go back every year that we can afford it (it is very expensive). The setting was glorious! Miles of hiking trails. Tennis, golf, horseback riding. And all kinds of family activities as well as programs for children. Be prepared though, there are MANY children present... And parents are not often parenting. The food was divine with many, many options including vegan and gluten free. Lots of local products were used. Beautiful views from everywhere in the hotel. My only criticism is that the decor is old and dingy and in need of upgrade, especially fabrics and carpets. But check it out.... You won't be disappointed:)
