Two New York Hospitality Icons Celebrate Milestones
The storied history of Mohonk Mountain House, a luxurious Victorian Castle resort in upstate New York’s scenic Hudson Valley, dates back more than 150 years, and its legacy of bespoke hospitality continues today. The facility itself is continuously renovated and restored to ensure that history is preserved for guests now and in the future.

When you visit Mohonk, you are stepping back in time. Hike on trails that were built by horsepower and dynamite in the late 19th century, paddle a canoe across Lake Mohonk, and enjoy afternoon tea and cookies in the Lake Lounge each afternoon, just as guests have done for more than 150 years.


Owned by the Smiley family since opening day, Mohonk Mountain House was founded in 1869 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986. Its amenities include The Spa at Mohonk Mountain House which has more than 200 windows overlooking a majestic backdrop within a 40,000 acre natural setting. Local timber beams, cedar shingles and native foliage create a sense of “bringing the outside in.”

Spacious accommodations range from VIP luxury to family-style accommodations. Most suites feature private balconies, in-room fireplaces and original antique-style furnishings. The Grove Lodge is nestled in a tranquil fern grove within easy walking distance of the Mountain House. With eco-friendly features, six guest rooms and a stunning Great Room, this new lodge is a perfect fit for guests who desire a more private retreat.

Overseen by Chef Jim Palmeri, culinary options are a highlight of your stay as a wide variety of eateries is available. The historic Main Dining Room features panoramic views of the Catskill Mountains, dramatic cathedral ceilings and original woodwork from 1893. The Modern American Dinner includes prime hand-cut steaks, pastas made fresh daily, gorgeous salads and savory soups. Enjoy handcrafted cocktails, hyper-local draft beer and more than 20 varieties of New York spirits at the quaint Carriage Lounge.
