Mohonk Mountain House

Mohonk ("lake in the sky") mountain house is a historic American hotel in Ulster County, New York. The site was designated as a national historic landmark in 1986 more than 70 years after it hosted the Lake Mohonk Conference on International Arbitration that led to the creation of the Hague Permanent Court of Arbitration.

The resort offers many recreational activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, tennis, golf (on a traditional 110-year-old Scottish golf course), horse riding, and picturesque hikes.
Most recently it made the news for its detailed record of the weather in the area for the past 112 years.

The resort offers spectacular hikes and rides with romantic places for rest ...

... and magnificent views.

The lake is perfect for swimming, boating, and fishing.

The trails are ideal for hiking and rock scrambling.
