Monhonk Mountain House

What They Are about

In 1869, rocky cliffs rising above a crystal blue glacial lake in the Hudson River Valley inspired Albert Smiley to create Mohonk Mountain House as a resort where guests could renew body, mind, and spirit in a beautiful natural setting. Now, over 140 years later, it is still owned and operated by the Smiley family.

What began as a small guest house evolved into a Victorian castle with fanciful turrets, local stone, and gabled frame constructions, set on 1,200 acres of spectacular scenery. Named the “Number Six Spa” in the World by Travel + Leisure and the “Number One Resort Spa” in the United States by Condé Nast Traveler, The Spa at Mohonk Mountain House is the resort's first addition in more than 100 years. The 30,000-square-foot-spa wing blends seamlessly with the existing building, enhancing the timeless ambiance of this historic resort. Mohonk Mountain House is also recognized on the 2013 Condé Nast Traveler, Gold List as one of The World’s Best Places to Stay.

With a rich and storied history, the Mohonk Barn Museum represents quintessential America; a step back in time to the founding of Mohonk Mountain House. With items dating back to the 1800s, the museum showcases Victorian-era carriages, antique farm and kitchen equipment, a 1929 Model A Ford Station Wagon, and so much more.
