About Mohonk Mountain House

Mohonk Mountain House is a meal-inclusive luxury wellness resort focused on relaxation, rejuvenation, fitness, family leisure, and outdoor activities. Located in the scenic Catskills Mountains of New York, this resort is a throwback to the affluent lakefront camps and clubs established in the early 20th century throughout upstate New York.

The resort offers group fitness classes daily, as well as a robust schedule of organized outdoor activities. In addition, Mohonk includes a full-service spa, 6 tennis courts, and a 9-hole golf course, plus various events throughout the year.

Food

Meals are included in the overnight rate, and dining options are plentiful. Guests eat either buffet style or from a robust menu, but there are no pre-set nutrition formulas designed for weight loss or calorie limitations. The menus offer healthy selections and some Hudson Valley local ingredients. Guests will choose from the Main Dining Room in the Mountain House for all meals, the Carriage Lounge for more classic bar fare, The Granary for casual outdoor dining, or optional room service.

Note that Mohonk Mountain House is not a weight loss-specific property, so guests with strict weight loss goals may wish to look elsewhere.

Extras

There are several unique fitness opportunities at Mohonk Mountain House. Tomahawk throwing takes place daily, and guests can learn to play Kubb, a physical chess game created by Vikings. Guided horseback rides, pony rides, and horse drawn carriage rides are available from May through October. Golfers can enjoy a 9-hole course with views of the Hudson Valley region, and the resort offers 6 tennis courts.

Location

Mohonk Mountain House is located on Mohonk Lake in the Catskills Mountains, adjacent to the Mohonk Preserve nature area. The area is known for hiking, wineries, changing seasons and fall foliage.

The resort is less than 2 hours from New York City. Guests will typically fly into either Newark International Airport or LaGuardia Airport, but will have to find transportation to Mohonk themselves, as airport transportation is not provided by the resort.

Pricing

This FitStay is a meal-inclusive luxury wellness resort, with regular room rates ranging from around $700 to over $1,600 per night, depending on the night of the week and the booking season. Mohonk is not on a specific schedule, so guests can book the resort for any length of time, starting with just one night.

Private cottages cost more than the standard room rate, and expect to pay extra for spa treatments, specialty classes, guided outdoor activities, golf, horseback riding, and alcoholic beverages.

Summary

Meals are included in the overnight rate, but many other amenities incur additional costs.

Mohonk Mountain House may be a good choice for people seeking a meal-inclusive, family-friendly resort with many outdoor fitness options and lake activities near New York City. However, because of the lack of focus on healthy eating, weight loss-focused travelers should consider a different FitStay options for their needs.
