Screaming kids, thin walls and food fights!

Rating: 2

The setting is great with fantastic views. The food was also great. When you look at the picture of the place, you might imagine a quiet, majestic place. It is anything but that. Screaming kids, loudspeakers blaring, and thin geustroom walls allow you to hear your neighbors clearly! If you have children that behave poorly, this is the place for you! Kids can scream at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and do. I was told by a staff member that throwing food at fellow diners is also OK at the Mohonk house. It is like staying at a kidergarten! There is no telelvision in the rooms and you must pay for interenet access. At $500/ day + a mandatory $72/day tip, this place was a big disappointment.

Magical place

Rating: 10

My boyfriend and i didn't actually stay overnight in the hotel (found a lovely local b&b for fraction of price), but we did spend one wonderful day there. It was a beautiful winter day and i must say mohonk is quite stunning. We went ice-skating and on the cliff walks and then went inside the wonderful building and sat by the fireplace. We didn't want to leave. We are considering going and spending 1 night at the hotel, but with the high prices we really think it is better to stay somewhere close and get a taxi up to the hotel for a day trip. I believe this is the place that Steven King got his inspiration for 'The shining' and you can see why when you are there. Well worth a visit, very romantic, we can't wait to go again.

The room is stripped down, not even a clock radio; but this encourages you to get out & walk around the beautiful grounds. Food, which is included in the price, is excellent. Unfortunately, when the sun goes down or if it is inclement weather, you are pressed to find entertainment; ONE pool table for the whole place, a game room which has a few old machines and the world's oldest pingpong table. Walk in rate can be 1/3 the price of the rooms, but at $400 a night, the b&bs in the area are better values. Check out 2 hours before you need to or you will NOT find a porter.

Amazing Experience

Rating: 10

We went last winter and the place was covered in snow. Snow-shoeing is so much fun (which I never tried) and the peacefulness took care of the tired city-soul. I had a great time with my fiance and also thoroughly enjoyed their breakfast buffet and delicious dinner. I also had fun dressing up for fancy dinner. We especially enjoyed the fireplace in our was on all the time and wood delivery to our room was always prompt. If you are looking for fancy luxurious hotel experience, this might not be the place for you. But if you're looking for a quiet place for a retreat and soak in the peace in nature, this is the place. Do take advantage of the recreation room for some ping-pong action as well as old-fashioned video games as well.

A classic

Oh what $300 million would do to bring this glorious old giant into a more current world. Not to change this grand place, but to preserve it for decades to come.

peace and quiet...worth the price

Rating: 9

Mohonk is just a beautiful place. Not the place to go if you are looking for a great night life. It is a place to take your wife, husband or lover and spend a peaceful weekend walking, hiking or just sitting by the fire. Get a room with a fireplace and you'll never want to leave. It is definately a place to get back in touch with nature. You won't be able to sleep the first night, you'll miss the noise of home!

Oh Ma Gosh!!! WOW!!!

This place will take your breath away. It is old and special - a place to explore again and again! This place will remain in your heart. If you can make it, I highly suggest Thanksgiving Brunch there - they pull out all the stops. I took a date here for a weekend - it was magical and the staff were superb! Worth the bucks!

The mountain house is where your experience deep peace and fullnes of spirit. It enrices your body and mind. One needs to be there to grasp what it has to offer a visitor.

Been hiking there several times and sometimes it was really beautiful and quiet and sometimes it was really crowded. We never tried the lodge since it looked really expensive and HEY I'm hiking could be great...bring your own food & wine and relax.

A Great Day Getaway

Rating: 9

Go here for the hiking, or for relaxing. There is so much to see and it is all so beautiful. I recommend taking the tough way up by way of the Labyrinth and Lemon Squeeze. Then climb to the top of the tower for breathtaking views. You may be tired, but it is well worth it. On the way back down, take the gentle trail for a relaxing end and stop at the many gazebos and gaze out over the hotel and lake. Wander through the gardens and climb the tree house. So much to do and so little time.
