The Mohonk Mountain House

We slipped away for a few days to
The Mohonk House in New Paltz, New York 
Founded by the Smiley Family in 1869,
 this Victorian castle resort is nestled just beyond the southern boarder of 
The Catskill Mountains.
Surrounded by 40,000 acres of pristine forest, 85 miles of hiking trails, 
and Mohonk Lake, this resort has something for everyone.
