STONE BUILDING RENOVATION
Every season Mohonk Mountain House strives to maintain and embark on improvements to ensure that our unique, century-old accommodations are clean, functional and comfortable for our guests. As such, this January, we will begin a 50-room redecoration in a portion of our historic Stone Building encompassing five levels, from our Ground floor through the fourth floor. The guest room work includes the replacement of wall paper, carpet, lighting, bathroom fixtures, and furniture, including beds. Additionally, renovations will occur on fifth and sixth floors, where we are refurbishing fireplaces and updating corridors. On the Stone building exterior, we are replacing balconies with new wooden decks that will match our most recent historic building improvements. The balcony work will be the most visible and disruptive aspect of this project.
We appreciate your understanding that these efforts are required to ensure that our Mountain House continues to be “the same, only better” in its 154th year.
“New” Stone Building Details and History:
The Stone Building at the Mountain House was built in two stages, in 1899 and 1902. The 1902 stage replaced the wooden section of the House and is now known as “New” Stone. The portion of the Mountain House that we will be renovating this winter is New Stone, consisting of room lines 62 through 71. It contains many of the traditional Victorian style accommodations which feature wood-burning fireplaces and balconies in all rooms.
