Family-owned and operated since 1869, the 251-room Mohonk Mountain House resembles Victorian castle—albeit one known for its daily outdoor activities. In warmer months, guests can enjoy hiking in the surrounding Shawangunk Ridge (a.k.a. the Gunks, a famous rock-climbing locale), horseback riding, and canoeing—while winter brings fun like cross-country skiing and skating in the resort’s own pavilion. Every Christmas Eve, guests can compete in the annual Yule Log Hunt, and search for the timber with a red ribbon on it. Whoever brings back the ribbon gets to light the Yule log in a ceremony before Christmas dinner.

Room to Book:

Tower Rooms, located in the Mountain House’s stone turrets, are among the Resort’s largest and have wood-burning fireplaces and balconies. Or, for the best views of the lake and surrounding cliffs, ask for room Nos. 378 or 478, which also have large porches with rocking chairs.

Insider Tip:

When was the last time you bought something for a dime? Ten cents will buy you a handful of fish food; kids can feed the eager swimmers right off of Lake Mohonk’s boat dock.
