Mohonk Mountain House, A Castle Only 90 Minutes from NYC!

If you are in the New York Metro area and are looking for someplace to go for a mini retreat, consider a trip to NY’s Mohonk Mountain House.  It is conveniently located in New Paltz, a mere 90 minutes from NYC.

It offers options ranging from a simple day of hiking, to a chance to stay in one of the 266 rooms in an old Victorian castle which was built-in the late 1800’s. If you want the carriage ride, be sure to get there early to  avoid the crowds in the summer.

If you are looking for something simple, you can go there and hike the many miles of trails, one of which takes you to a great look out point, where you see spectacular vista’s of the Hudson Valley.

If you are looking for a longer get away, you can treat yourself and stay overnight. Their rates are inclusive of meals.

You can check out their website for all the details.
