Mohonk Mountain House is a castle-like all-inclusive resort just outside of New Paltz, New York, about 100 miles north of NYC. My family has been going to this magical place since I was a child, and a crew of 60, yes 60, get together here every single Thanksgiving for 5 days. Family time, gourmet food, relaxing in the spa and great outdoors – needless to say, I leave each year a very happy and rejuvenated version of myself. The resort truly believes in disconnecting while on the mountain top. None of the rooms offer TVs or alarm clocks and wifi is spotty, which leaves guest feeling refreshed and relaxed. Not only does Mohonk have looks, surrounded by Lake Mohonk, gorgeous grounds, and unbelievable hiking in the Hudson Valley, but they also have activities galore. Hiking, ice skating, sipping tea at their daily “tea time”, taking a relaxing yoga class or hanging in their world-class spa are a few favorites to name a few. Mohonk will always hold a very special place in my heart.
See below some of the 5-star food we enjoy each year at Mohonk. Top dishes were the Maine Lobster, Farm Fresh Salmon, Vermont Cheese Plate, and Fig Brittle Mozzarella Salad. Bring. Me. Back. 🙂
