THE HISTORY OF MOHONK MOUNTAIN HOUSE

Back in 1869, Albert Smiley purchased 300 acres and a 10-room inn by a majestic glacial lake in the Hudson Valley. His mission was to provide opportunities for recreation and renewal of body, mind, and spirit in a beautiful natural setting. And still today, his legacy continues to thrive. More than a resort, Mohonk embodies a love of nature, a preservation of history, and respect for the world around us. Walk the same halls that five U.S. presidents visited, and look out on breathtaking views shared by our guests since Mohonk’s inception. As our guest, you become a part of our history, and we hope Mohonk Mountain House will always remain a part of yours.
