At One with Nature

By Rona Berg / May 6, 2017

It’s quite a distinction, to be the first new accommodation built on a property in 100 years.

With the construction of Grove Lodge, a light and airy 7,000-square-foot freestanding structure with six guest rooms, each with a fireplace and private bathroom, the historic Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY, now offers a perfect private getaway for family reunions, wedding parties and groups that want a spacious but cozy retreat all their own.

The two-story Lodge is built with sustainable materials like reclaimed wood and native stone, with rustic furniture and artwork handcrafted by local artisans and craftspeople. The Great Room, a perfect gathering place for groups, features a cathedral ceiling, natural hardwood floors, a wall of windows and a stone patio, the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of joe and look out onto the woods and contemplate nature, while rocking in a hand-hewn rocking chair.

With all the amenities of the main house—including a range of locally sourced snacks from the surrounding Hudson Valley—Grove Lodge is the perfect home-away-from-home.
