For nearly 150 years, the majestic profile of the Mohonk Mountain House has been an iconic landmark of the Shawangunk Ridge. Weathering changing cultural climates, innovations in transportation, and the tidal cycles of tourism, this mountaintop retreat has held strong as the gold standard of luxury in the Hudson Valley, stewarded by five generations of the Smiley family.

Under executive chef Jim Palmeri (pictured right), the kitchen staff has recently been expanded and the menu elevated, emphasizing Hudson Valley food and beverage producers. As the New York Times wrote, "Whether they featured local items or not, Mohonk's menus are a captivating chronicle of American cooking."

In September, the Mohonk Mountain House owners were named "Legendary Family Historic Hoteliers of the Year" by the Historic Hotels of America and Historic Hotels Worldwide. Reserved for multi-generational, family-owned hotels, this honor lauds the preservation efforts and custodianship of devoted caretakers. "We are more motivated than ever to continue spearheading our unique vision of recreation and renewal at this beautiful and historic landmark," says Albert K. Smiley, president of Mohonk Mountain House.
