  • Every visit has been truly enjoyable and memorable - leaving us with a "can't wait to come back again - soon!"

    by Thomas N on 2017-10-18 07:20 am

    Mohonk is a one of a kind destination on the east coast and should be visited at least once in one's live-time. The initial visit most often results in return visits. The natural setting provides a very calming affect, the fresh air is extremely refreshing, the efficiency and professionalism of the entire staff makes each visit truly enjoyable and trouble-free. Have been to Mohonk over 5 times over many years. When we took our 10 year old son to Mohonk - when asked - he wanted to go back to Mohonk for his 36th birthday - and I believe that you can't top that as a recommendation!!

  • Even for a rainy weekend, it is a beautiful place to stay.

    I thought the hotel was beautiful. the staff was very nice and friendly. Food was delicious and, for the three course gourmet dinner, you could order more than one of a course (similar to cruise ships) if you really liked what you had. The cheddar mousse was excellent! Every staff member is enthusiastic about what they do and that enthusiasm is contagious. My daughters and I got lost on our hike home from the sky view--in the pouring rain--and we had already checked out. But our luggage was held in the luggage room and we were allowed instant access to attain dry clothes to change into. We bought day passes to the spa to warm up and enjoy the rest of the afternoon. Unfortunately, there was a water main break, and we could not utilize all of the spa or the showers. I kind of thought they should have refunded some of the money or given a future discount due to that inconvenience. The guide for the house tour stated many times how their philosophy was to treat the guest as if he was a personal house guest. I don't feel this exemplified this philosophy. Otherwise, I will be happy to return. Oh--and it was Columbus day weekend--so it was loud with many children running around. It was delightful to see all the families having reunions. Only other comment, because it would bother my husband if he had been able to come, there is no TV in the bedroom.

  • Not worth the money

    While Mohonk has impeccable grounds, beautiful scenic views and a lot to do while visiting, the prices are astronomical. My suggestion to management is to make your pricing policy more clear. Don't make it seem like meals and gratuities are "included" in the nightly rates when you're literally going to charge over 20% extra on top of everything. For such a nice place, it's in very poor taste to make your guests feel nickel and dimed. Another issue we had while visiting, was there were designated areas for 21 and older guests. We were happy to see this since there were a ton of families visiting and we wanted a more "relaxed" area to have an afternoon drink/snack. However, this wasn't enforced and we got stuck sitting next to a large family with 4 whiny young children. Our sunset happy hour was anything but that. If you're going to make a rule, please make sure your staff enforces it! Especially for the prices we were paying to eat and drink. That being said, everything was VERY clean, the staff was courteous and helpful, and the old world charm was much appreciated and we enjoyed taking it all in during our stay. Overall, we had a nice weekend getaway without being too far from home, but unfortunately we will most likely not return because the prices are not justified by any means.

  • Deceiving

    I suppose I should have done my homework. About 5 years ago, some friends and I stayed in the area, and toured the Mohammad Mountain House property. We were charged to park, however, the parking was right behind the house and close to all of their magnificent trails.
    I lost my photos and so decided to take a day trip to capture some fall photos from the area.
    Apparently there is a new parking facility and the charge is $22. I suppose that is a fair charge since it is well located if you plan to hike as all the trails are right there.
    Upon my entrance I spoke to the attendant about Wayne property to take photos. I shower her my gear which included a tripod and she said no problem, you can walk to the house.
    Here is where my two dot rating comes from. To get to the house, it is approximately a two mile hike, and although the trail is exceptionally maintained, it is quite the distance from the house itself. It was quite the task luggI guess the gear there, then hiking up skytop trail.
    Again, the entire property is magnificent, I should have done my homework, and the attendant should have been more specific with the distance from the lot to the house.
    Had I intended my trip to be a day hike, this review would be five dots.
    Just beware when you park, you are walking quite a bit before you get to the house to hike a trail
    And you are not allowed in the house as was the case several years ago.

  • Beware of the hiking trails

    by Homemaker1 on 2017-10-16 10:06 am

    My family has been coming to the Mohunk Mountain house since the 1960's and always had a great experience. As day guests this past weekend, 5 family members were in the labyrinth and had a traumatic experience as someone used bear spray in the last difficult leg of the trail, causing them to lose their breath, vision and stability. My 15 year old niece had the worst of it. Hikers should not be allowed to have bear spray on them when going through the labyrinth. This is a place where family gets together and this experience ruined the day which we all look forward to for us.
