Top 10 Classic American Family Resorts: Mohonk Mountain House
Mohonk means “lake in the sky,” but there is a whole lot more than lake and sky to enjoy at Mohonk Mountain House! You won’t want to leave your “Cloud 9” after staying at this Victorian castle set atop Shawangunk Ridge in New York.
As one of America’s oldest family-owned resorts, Mohonk has had a lot of practice creating a vacation spot that makes everyone happy. That’s why Mohonk made our No. 2 spot - along with the fact that your rate includes bountiful breakfast and lunch buffets, four-course served dinners, Afternoon Tea and Cookies and most resort activities daily. The idyllic backdrop of a castle on ragged grey cliffs surrounded by blue sparkling water accompanies you and the family on your Hudson Valley adventures.
Try a hand – and another hand, and both your feet – at rock climbing. Take a few swings on the 110-year-old Scottish golf course while the kids are horseback riding through extensive trails. Or, tour the gardens alone or with another family member for quality bonding time. Don’t worry about making the right turn in the Victorian Maze; each directional decision renders 19th-century fashioned landscaping beauty. The only complaint you’ll hear on this trip is when you have to leave.
