A friend at work left this brochure on my desk today. She does this, every so often, because she knows how badly I want to visit the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY. I almost stayed there on my honeymoon, but decided it was too expensive and probably not worth the money to be in such a beautiful place in the freezing cold weather. I had a chance a few years later when my car broke down on the Thruway at the New Paltz exit. A good mechanic nixed that chance.
I'm drawn not so much to the elegant accommodations and unique charm of the place (no in-room tv's and they serve tea and cookies each day!), but to the breathtaking scenery. Who wouldn't want to stay in a castle in the mountains with that view?
