Room with a View…and porches with views… So many stunning views!

Mohonk Mountain House, a breathtakingly beautiful Victorian “castle” resort with its own crater lake and nestled in thousands of acres of protected mountain lands, was designed from the beginning to take advantage of the amazing views. Though very Victorian in style with lots of cozy nooks and crannies, there was a light-filled window, doorway to a balcony, or a breezy passageway at every turn.  Even lowly stairwells had incredible views.

One of my favorite balconies overlooking the gardens, lake and trees.  This was an overcast day and the gardens were extra lush.

A room with a view… Photo was taken from inside the house in a hallway where a little buffet was set-up for a meeting. Huge picture windows everywhere in the house.
