Mohonk Mountain House is a historic mountaintop resort that has been around since 1869. It located on a small "sky lake" called Lake Mohonk at the top of the Shawangunk Mountains, about 90 miles north of Manhattan. It is surrounded by wilderness, fabulous views and many miles of hiking trails. The new $13 million Spa at Mohonk Mountain House was built with "green" techniques and is designed to fit in perfectly with the 19th century buildings. It's family friendly, and prices include meals.
