Mohonk Mountain House
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in New Paltz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Mohonk was built 145 years ago on top of a mountain on a lake. The pace is amazing. Seek out the specials on their web site. Food, spa, and ice rink are top notch,Winter is an amazing time to stay at Mohonk, as the summer crowds are gone and you will find yourself and your loved one enjoying the amenities with few people. As always, food is exceptional, as is the service. Don't forget to walk around the lake and make sure you catch the sunset by the top of the hill

Winter is an amazing time to stay at Mohonk, as the summer crowds are gone and you will find yourself and your loved one enjoying the amenities with few people. As always, food is exceptional, as is the service. Don't forget to walk around the lake and make sure you catch the sunset by the top of the hill. You will see how the light bathes the entire valley. One of me and my girlfriend's favorite places, as is romantic and the prices are much better during this season, with plenty of specials during the week. Valet parking always seems lagging behind though, which is why I rather park myself and save me half an hour wait. All in all, a must experience if you live in the north east region

Everyone should treat themselves to a stay here, unless they are indifferent to nature and spectacular scenery.

We arrived the day after Labor Day, so some outdoors dining opportunities were no longer in service. But the swap was, NO crowds! Priorities are a trade-off. I believe there are fire works for Independence Day. Sounds wonderful - -fireworks over the spectacular lake. But, maybe MORE people there to share the event, would infringe on one's enjoyment - -likely great for families. I have heard many families return annually for reunions.

We arrived for "Music Week" which included in the price, three concerts each day. Each concert was a different genre of music, good for a new experience, and enlarging the opportunity for enjoyment.

Correction to a former person's review: breakfast and lunch are included buffet style with overnight guests, but the dinner, at least on week nights, is selected from a menu with four to six choices in four different courses. See the website for sample menus. Be sure to view the many other "theme weeks" - -something for every one. Alcoholic beverages are additional. No tipping. All included, but some activities might be extra. We did not encounter any employee who was not eager to please, pleasant, and helpful.

Fall would be beautiful with the autumn colors. September - -the mammoth garden was beautifully tended, with drop dead colors (planned, and changed annually) and spectacular dallias among other blooms. Boating on the lake was relaxing, and special. Winter with an ice rink, would greatly change the scene. Who needs/wants TV? I took photos of a bunny, and a deer snacking in the garden area.

When booking, I suggest you ask if there is a fireplace, what exactly is the view, how quiet is the room - -a corridor on the way to the dinning areas many not be desirable, or near an elevator. Valley view rooms also have a nice view. Free valet service was welcoming.

I live on the west coast, or I would visit Mohonk much more often. Worth the expense!

Room Tip: Check the website, it may take some searching, for the "theme weeks", and really treat you...

You can't beat mohonk in terms of the gourmet food and the stunning hundreds of acres available for hiking. The hotel is charming in its ability to maintain a balance between early 20th century vintage rustic appearance and the comforts of a modern resort. Hard to find a more romantic get away spot. Expensive - but worth the investment for a great opportunity to unwind.

The food is amazing... The chefs are from the local culinary institute of America ... And it shows. Truly unique , creative and delicious meals. Only constructive criticism would be that the formal dinner desserts could be amped up to match the quality of the appetizers and main course.

From the moment we entered the gate at the foot of the mountain , we were treated like royalty. Upon reaching the massive long mountain house caressing a lake, a valet was there to greet us. Smiles ,and more smiles from the staff gliding about servicing this he away from home, greeted us in the carpeted hallways with many side rooms to explore. We went to a cozy pub for drinks and then dinner in a formal dining room. The meal was suburb. The staff is local. Either they live on premises or in a nearby town. Two in our party played pool in one of the side rooms. There was a live band and fire in the fireplace of the ballroom lined with extremely comfortable living room seating. Gift shop remained open for most of the night which had many interesting items that ranged in price. I did some holiday shopping there. Days after , we continued to bask in the lingering glow imparted to us from the genteel old world charm we had treated ourselves to

I have been to Mohonk numerous times over the years and have enjoyed each stay tremendously! Each season has its own set of activities to keep each member of the family happily occupied. It is truly a beautiful location and the Mountain House is so unique.The trails, the rock climb, the lake, the ice rink - so much to do but when you just need the peace and quite there's always a little nook to curl into or a rocking chair to enjoy. The food and service have always been exceptional as well. My family and I will continue to enjoy the beauty of this place for years to come!
