Surrounded by 40,000 acres of pristine forest, Mohonk Mountain House offers an ideal environment for reflection, analysis, and decision-making. Located only 90 miles north of New York City, the Victorian castle resort began hosting meetings in 1883; now, this National Historic Landmark blends modern amenities with old-world charm.
Mountain Rest: A Secluded Hideaway at the New Grove Lodge
Grove Lodge — the resort’s newest and most luxurious accommodations — is ideal for executive retreats, family reunions, wedding parties, or anyone who craves a more private Mohonk experience. Located within a mature oak glen and nestled next to a tranquil fern grove, the lodge is only a five-minute walk from the historic Mountain House. It features six expansive guest rooms, each outfitted with handmade furniture from local craftsmen, a natural stone fireplace, and a luxurious bathroom complete with a soaking tub and separate shower.
Guests who reserve all six rooms will have access to the lodge’s majestic, 1,080-square-foot Great Room. Accented by a grand, arch doorway, the Great Room boasts cathedral ceilings, exposed wooden beams, beautiful hardwood floors, and a wall of windows that flood the room with natural light. A locally made, live-edge table stands at the center of the Great Room and serves as the perfect gathering or meeting space. Warm up around the stunning natural stone fireplace or take in the fresh mountain air on the private stone patio, complete with Mohonk’s signature rocking chairs.
The Company that Plays Together Stays Together
Mohonk’s group recreation professionals can help customize your stay with private experiences, whether you’re looking to structure events around a certain theme or simply kick back around a campfire. Groups working on team-building, conflict resolution, leadership development, creativity, and more can choose from more than 40 customizable activities ranging from tricycle polo to scavenger hunts.
Just Breathe: Improve Your Mind, Body, and Spirit with Mindfulness
Research has shown that mindfulness meditation — being present in a gentle, nonjudgmental way — provides an opportunity to develop skills that can enhance performance and leadership in a complex environment. That’s why Mohonk’s director of mindfulness programming, Nina Smiley, Ph.D., has curated two mindfulness training sessions for your group to learn how to decrease stress and improve productivity — within the workplace and beyond.
In the hourlong Mindfulness in Meetings workshop, busy people who have “no time to meditate” learn stress-reducing, performance-enhancing skills they can use immediately with simple tools and techniques.
For groups that don’t have a full hour to spare, open your meeting with a 15-minute guided Mindfulness Session to set the tone for the day. Emphasizing digital detox to encourage being present in the moment and reduce distractions, along with a healthy choice breakout, this Mindful Meetings Package Add-On is perfect for your next Mohonk meeting.
Work Hard, Play Hard … and Relax
The historic Mountain House is breathtaking in its own right. But even more spectacular are the cliffs, lake, and forest that create a natural playground for guests. Whether your group is excited about golf, mountain biking, hiking, or horseback riding, you will enjoy the fresh air and create memories together. During the winter months, try ice skating in the open-air pavilion, along with other outdoor activities, such as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. And after a great day out in nature or in your meeting room, you can find even more ways to rejuvenate with a menu of more than 80 treatments at The Spa at Mohonk Mountain House — named the No. 1 resort spa in the U.S. by Condé Nast Traveler. Our comprehensive fitness center, beautiful indoor pool, and daily fitness, yoga, and meditation classes provide everything you need to de-stress and get your body moving.
