Back in 1869, Albert Smiley purchased 300 acres and a 10-room inn by a majestic glacial lake in the Hudson Valley. And now, 150 years later, our Victorian castle continues to thrive. Visit the same halls that five U.S. presidents walked, and look out on breathtaking views shared by our guests since Mohonk’s inception. Join with us to celebrate 150 years of rejuvenation, a love of nature, and respect for the world around us. As our guest, you become a part of our history, and we hope Mohonk Mountain House will always remain a part of yours.
