Hotel Pretty: Mohonk Mountain House
A little while back Jordan and I spent an amazing evening with his brothers at Mohonk Mountain House, just a few hours north of Manhattan. Mohonk is a fabulous resort dating back to Victorian times, and is still owned by the same family who opened it in the mid-1800s. The interior reminded me of a Victorian twist on a Wes Anderson film, but the real star of the show was the lake in the back of the resort. We all agreed it would be a wonderful place to return to with our own families someday. With a spa, live music, hiking, lawn games, lake activities, and--my personal favorite--a bonfire with s'mores, all set against this stunning natural landscape, Mohonk is perfectly idyllic. We'll definitely be back, Mohonk!
