tHe maGiC Of MoHonK moUnTaiN hoUsE

We recently spent a few days at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY to demonstrate a couple of holiday workshops for their guests and I have to share what a unique experience the Mohonk Mountain House offers people. The history, the spectacular views, the accommodations, the festivities and all of the interesting people make it one of the most relaxing, magical places I’ve visited recently. If you’re ever looking for a peaceful, nature-filled escape from technology and the hustle and bustle of the city, Mohonk should be one of your destinations of choice.

We arrived just in time for an ice storm, which made the views and the scenery all the more magical. We enjoyed afternoon teas, board games, and a spa visit that was unlike any other. There are no tv’s in the rooms, and each room is equipped with a wood burning fireplace, so the opportunities to unwind were even more plentiful. Due to the weather and the time of year, we didn’t get a chance to hike around the bluffs as we would have liked, but we can look forward to that experience during our next visit which we’ll be doing again in November. 2009 marks their 140th anniversary, so you can expect incredible events throughout the year. Sneak a peek here!
