"Daycations" at Mohonk Mountain House

Escape the city with a day on our mountaintop!

Plan the perfect escape from New York City with a Mohonk Mountain House "Daycation". Imagine spending the day at our Victorian castle resort. Arrive in the morning for a quick hike above Lake Mohonk, taking incredible photos of the Shawangunk Ridge. Enjoy a delicious buffet-style lunch in the dining room before heading out to the stables for a guided trail ride. Take a stroll through the lush gardens and greenhouse and pick up a few souvenirs in the gift shop before dinner. Take one last stroll out to the dock before heading home with priceless memories.

Anthony Bourdain, Travel Channel Host, describes Mohonk Mountain House:

"Its pristine setting and undiluted Victorian charms would be impossible to replicate anywhere. A giddily delightful step backwards into a Golden Age - and the best kind of surprise."
