Spending the Day Mohonk Mountain House


Last week was a wonderful time with my sister. It was the kind of day that goes into my most memorable of all days. It started as an ordinary visit with a ride to the top of Mohonk Mountain.

Where Is Mohonkk Mountain House.

Mohonk Mountain houses is located in New Paltx, New York, close to where I grew up. Its a beautiful Victorian Castle that is along the Shawangunk ridge and its surrounded by 40,000 acres of nature. It has incredible hiking trails and if you can afford too, you can stay overnight in their luxury resort

What To Do At Mohonk Mountain House Property

You start at the gate house of the Mohonk Mountain House property where you show your day pass that you purchased online. You can hike up the road to where the hotel is. There are 85 miles of hiking trails ranging from easy to difficult. Since it was a warm day prepare to bring a bottle of water and snacks.

My sister and I mainly explored the grounds of the mountain house which was a hike in itself.

Not only is there a glacier lake on top of this mountain you can hike all around it. The grand hotel overlooks the lake. Staying in this resort cost a pretty penny. But its worth it since the grounds are to drool over and there is so much to discover and do. From hiking, boating, swimming, tennis and just strolling around the historic hotel reading about all the interesting people who stayed here.

There are plenty of roads to walk around. This one leads to an amazing botanical gardens suited for royalty! Every  kind of  flower imaginable.

It will also makes me want to dance though these pretty flowers gardens. The colors were amazing and the sunshine made us feel happy.

After our dance in the garden we headed down a different path. Our path leads us to a view of trees in the valley, that reminded us of being in China somewhere.

A great place to sit down and read a good book. I could stay here for hours with my toes in the dirt listening to the birds in the background.

My sister had arranged for us to have lunch at the hotel. The lunch was something out of a dream. I am not a big buffet person but this lunch buffet was 5 stars.

I want to thank Jerry from Mohonk Mountain House for the generous day passes and lunch. For more information about Mohonk Mountain House .
