June is a "Twice as Nice" Mother’s and Father’s Day Month at Mohonk Mountain House with Special Prices for Both
Moms should be treated like queens on Mother's Day and dads like kings on Father's Day, so why not take both of them to a beautiful Victorian castle to celebrate? Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY, a National Historic Landmark resort and Historic Hotel of America, has extended its “mothers stay free in May” offer to include dad. As long as there is one paying guest, moms and dads are invited to stay free midweek throughout the month of June.
The resort is only 90 miles north of New York City and makes a great escape for the whole family with three meals a day included, the resort’s noted afternoon tea and cookies, and a variety of activities to appeal to all ages. Try my favorite Mohonk hike (above), “the Lemon Squeeze,” an on-property challenge of bouldering and scrambling, unwinding on the porch after in the rocking chairs overlooking Mohonk Lake.
Moms and dads also receive a 15% discount coupon for a purchase at the gift shop, 15% off a spa treatment at the resort’s huge new spa, (a lot different from what was depicted in the 1994 movie "The Road to Wellville"), 15% off a carriage ride or a session of mountain biking, caving, or horseback riding. If that’s not enough, wonderful Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets is nearby and you’ll get a VIP coupon for shopping there, too.
In case the kids have forgotten to buy gifts, moms and dads receive a cushy Mohonk Mountain House robe and a picture frame to help remember this charming getaway into the 19th century. The paying adult is charged a single occupancy rate starting at $410 per night. Click here for more information and reservations or call 866-666-3146. Subject to availability.
