I have been going to Mohonk Mountain House for the past thirty years. My first stay was on my honeymoon and then I returned every few years thereafter for getaways - to write, to unwind with my husband, to spend quality time with my daughter. As a result, it is a special part of many significant memories.
I love this place -- a rambling castle in the Hudson Valley. There is nothing else quite like it. In many ways it is like traveling in time (backward to more civilized, Victorian days) or getting a taste of Europe without the hassle of a long flight.
The grounds are magnificent. There are endless outdoor activities. There is also great appeal to staying indoors and sitting by one of the large fireplaces in the Lake Lounge, cup of tea and a book at hand. The rooms are charming and scrupulously clean. Comfortable beds, lovely coverlets, soft sheets, plump pillows...ahhh. Lakeside accommodations have the most wonderful view. (Mountainside rooms are nice but less thrilling.) The food is terrific. Lots of fresh produce, well-prepared main dishes, salads, fresh breads and abundant desserts. I remember decades back when jello was one of the desserts served and the slogan about the demographic was "for newly weds and nearly deads" -- neither of which is true anymore. With the expanded Spa, a new range of people are attracted to the hotel.
The building is old -- so a little grace is required. Don't expect it to match a brand new hotel.
Yes, it is expensive, but the price is all-inclusive and covers a lot. it is worth saving up and giving yourself the treat of a night or two on the mountain top. Just be open to this unique experience. You won't regret it.
