Winter Getaway: Cross-country skiing at the Mohonk Mountain House.



To celebrate its 145th anniversary, the historic Mohonk Mountain House has given us another reason to love the holiday season: reduced rates on luxury winter getaways.

The lakefront Victorian castle resort, world-renowned for its breathtaking views in the mountains of New York’s Hudson Valley, will offer a special midweek “December Delight” package starting at $186.90 per person, per night — a savings of 40 percent off. The package, which includes fine-dining meals by award-winning chefs and various resort activities, is perfect for travelers who appreciate the finer things in life as much as a good deal.

There aren’t many luxury resorts that can top the Mohonk Mountain House’s festive holiday atmosphere. With a crystal-blue lake and snow-covered mountains right outside their window, guests are invited to get cozy by a wood-burning fire while admiring the property’s tasteful Victorian-style holiday décor and an immaculately decorated 60-foot Austrian pine Christmas tree with 1,500 LED lights.

With no shortage of recreational outdoor activities and winter sports, you can enjoy the winter wonderland outside. Activities include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snow tubing, ice-skating at the hotel’s open-air Pavilion, and 85 miles of trails for exploring and hiking.

Want even more holiday spirit? You can always participate in the resort’s full schedule of seasonal activities for the whole family, such as the Yule Log Hunt, a Trim-A-Tree Party, the nightly lighting of the Menorah, holiday craft-making, caroling, and workshops on wreath making, cookie decorating, seasonal “tablescapes” and more.

A luxury resort would not be complete without a top-rated spa. Named the Number One Resort Spa in the United States by Condé Nast Traveler, the 30,000-square-foot spa at the Mohonk Mountain House boasts impressive amenities such as an outdoor heated mineral pool, an indoor heated swimming pool with underwater sound system, a yoga/motion studio, comprehensive fitness center and solarium. With a full menu of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments to indulge in, you’ll be feeling the holiday cheer in no time.
