Mohonk Mountain House is located on thousands of acres of property. The rates are not cheap for the cost of a room BUT you get 85 miles of hiking trails, indoor pool, theme programs on the weekend, bike paths, ice skating, snow tubing, x-country skiing, swimming in the lake,golf,boating,fishing...(all depending on the time of the year of course) They also include 3 meals a day as well as afternoon tea and cookies.
The hotel was built in the mid 1800s and has been owned by the same family since then.There is so much history (check out the barn museum)
Some of the rooms need to be renovated but it could be much worse and they have rooms that are beautiful.It just depends on how much you are willing to pay.When i went i didnt get the best room ( I paid about $400/nigiht) BUT it was fine becuase i knew i wouldnt be in my room most of the time.Just to sleep.I spent the rest of the time out on the trails, hiking,rock scrambling,going to the spa,horseback riding...my husband and i had a BLAST.
I would reccomend this hotel for people who are active and enjoy being outside.Those who like to get their hands dirty but still like to sit down and enjoy a nice dinner in the evening. Its a great getaway and not far from Manhattan. If you like to stay in your room while you are on vacation,if you dont like to be outside,you may want to try a different hotel.
As for the prices you are quoted when you reserve, isnt that their job?To get you to pay the most money you can?The hotel is there to make MONEY.Not to give you tons of discounts.They want to make you happy but they do need to stay in business to do that. If you think the rate is too high then just ASK for a discount!!! Dont take it personal.Thats their job.
