Scenes from Mohonk Mountain House

For a couple of days in mid-August I was lucky enough to spend time at the Mohonk Mountain House, a Victorian “castle” resort in New York.  Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains with views of the Catskills, a giant crater lake, lush formal gardens, and intricate Victorian designs, Mohonk was a spectacular retreat. Photos cannot do justice to the grandeur of the estate or the feeling being completely surrounded by thousands and thousands of acres of protected natural beauty.
