New Paltz, New York (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
One of the great 19th century mountain resorts in America, the historic Mohonk Mountain House has been a unique destination for generations, since its founding in 1869. Located 90 miles north of New York City, this majestic Victorian castle resort has been providing recreation and renewal of body, mind, and spirit in a beautiful natural setting for 145 years.

To celebrate the resort’s 145th Anniversary, guests are invited to enjoy exciting activities throughout the year including Anniversary-inspired travel packages, a new Signature Spa Treatment, dinner menu items reminiscent of 1869, and more.
