Springtime at Mohonk Mountain House creates opportunities to connect with family and nature. Mohonk is your one-stop shop for a family vacation that offers outdoor adventure and recreation, not to mention gorgeous views, for both parents and children, and even some relaxation options just for parents.
Families can go hiking, biking, and rock climbing among the scenic cliffs and verdant woods of the forest, or go kayaking, paddle boating, or canoeing on Lake Mohonk. There are numerous activities available at your leisure, as well as programs that are created to guide and assist you.
Voted one of Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Family Resorts, Mohonk Mountain House is fully equipped with modern amenities and beautiful accommodations. Its unique character and grand architecture whisk you back to the turn of the twentieth century.
