NEW PALTZ, NEW YORK PROPERTY EST. 1869 • NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK In 1869, rocky cliffs rising above a crystal blue, glacial lake in the Hudson River Valley inspired Albert Smiley to create Mohonk Mountain House as a resort where guests could renew body, mind, and spirit in a beautiful natural setting. Now, over 147 years later, it is still owned and operated by the Smiley family. What began as a small guesthouse evolved into a Victorian castle with fanciful turrets, local stone, and gabled frame constructions, set on 1,200 acres of spectacular scenery. The award-winning, eco-friendly spa marks the resort’s first addition in more than 100 years. The 30,000-square-foot spa wing blends seamlessly with the existing building, enhancing the timeless ambiance of this historic resort. The historic Mohonk Barn Museum tells the remarkable story of life at Mohonk Mountain House throughout the centuries.
