As the Fall 2013 semester came to a close, the Farmhouse went through yet another round of stirring changes. Julie, the unsuspected roomie who filled our hearts and lungs with smiles, and Chelsea, the voice of reason, is leaving to welcome back Jacqui and Leslie, las chicas bonitas de Espana.
Meanwhile, Diane, a farmhouse lady by association, is about to embark on the greatest journey ...
... 14 inches of perfect powder on the ground. Too fluffy even to make snowmen. We tried, but all we could come up with were zen snow foundations. After several attempts, we did manage to make a snowman that stood a whole foot tall. I was desperate to go skiiing, but it was too late to do that and make the long drive back to New Jersey. So we did the next best thing - I made hot toddys, we donned our ...

During December they decorate a train and have musicians playing Christmas music and Santa ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mohonk Mountain House New Paltz
Mohonk Mountain House was recommended to my husband and I by many. I have to say we were seriously disappointment! The lunch buffet was outrageously overpriced at $45 per person which of course you had to pay otherwise you would not be allowed on the grounds. We wouldn't have minded paying if the meal was worth it but this was awful. Perhaps they changed the cook. I wouldn't have paid $12 for what we ate!
After seeing Mohonk on the Travel channel this past Summer, my husband surprised me with a wonderful one-year anniversary present, which was retreat to Mohonk Mountain House. We spend most of our days working in the city, so being outdoors, hiking, rock climbing, canoeing and horseback riding was a huge change for us--but an enjoyable one. We fully enjoyed both the casual and formal dining (breakfast especially), but found the atmosphere to be the most wonderful aspect of the adventure. While Mohonk caters to family-style fun, it can still be just as enjoyable for couples. So many trails to get lost on, and nature truly abounds. We have photos of deer to prove it. The Mohonk Mountain House can be likened to "Kellerman's" resort as depicted in the movie Dirty Dancing. Lots of activities, sports, and interesting people, and complete solitude from the digital era (even though the business center does have Internet access for the truly computer needy). Hiking trails are great, with levels from easy to very difficult/strenuous, and lounging on the lake porch in large rocking chairs is most relaxing. Bring the bug spray if you go during warmer months, and don't forget a basket of board games and books to enjoy during your visit. We'll return again, likely after our family has grown, since it is a fantastic family retreat and a great place to spend focused time with each other.
My husband and I have been visiting Mohonk every year since 1990. It is our very favorite place to stay.
Awesome Vacation Destination
I can't say enough good things about Mohonk Mtn House. Awesome setting, incredible food, wonderful staff. My husband surprised me with the vacation after he saw Mohonk on the Travel channel, and it was well worth the 5 hour flight east and the 90 minute drive from NY. So much to do you don't even miss having a TV. Mohonk is a true family environment (however, if you don't like children, this is not the place for you). We will definately be returning to Mohonk next year.
Such a unique experience for us South Florida flat-landers. The setting of the mountain house is spectacular. The "hotel" is old money rustic, with lots of nooks and crannies. Loved the public rooms. Enjoyed the food, especially the lunch option of dining outdoors at the Granary.
No air conditioning and hard rock furniture
We stayed at Mohonk Mountain House for three days and were surrounded by day trippers who seemed to take over the facilities. We were dis- tressed to find there was no air conditioning in the room.
In the afternoon when tea was being served, the day trippers and hikers seemed to take over the serving area. On a rainy day, the day trippers and hikers had their back packs and gear spread out in the public rooms.
The location is beautiful, but the staff seems to have no control over how many day trippers and hikers occupy the grounds.
Wonderful place to relax
I recently spent 4 days at Mohonk Mountain House. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. It was so beautiful, peaceful and quiet. Nothing more I could ask for. The staff was extremely helpful. Food exceptional. I can't wait to go back. It is a place I will return over and over.
Exceptional and peaceful, but...
I love to spend time at Mohonk its among my favorite spots, but I go there mostly as a hiker, (day pass). I agree with the previous reviewer about the food. For the extraordinary prices they charge, the food was less than average and disappointing. That is the weakest part of the whole stay. But...it was my husband's birthday and they surprised him with a nice plant. Nice touch...
My best friend and I spent a weekend at Mohonk Mountain House in August 2002. We had the best time -- the location is fantastic, the food is awesome and the service was above par. With all of that said -- Mohonk is not for everyone. If you're addicted to the television set, guest rooms do not have them -- you can rent one from the front desk. If you don't enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, hiking, skiing, swimming, skating, horseback riding, campfires and nature -- well, Mohonk may not be the place for you. Mohonk is a step back in time. It's rustic, but always comfortable. It's relaxing, but somehow you feel like you have more energy. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing to escape the daily grind of 24/7/365!
