man vs Mohonk

This past weekend Mr Weiss had a family get together at The Mohonk Mountain House

which is beyond impressive, beyond spectacular and beyond PRICEY!

But there are a two ways to skin that proverbial cat people, you can cough up the whopping $500 plus per night (ummm more if it’s a holiday weekend) and get your kicks worth, you can stay nearby at one of the many cute BnB’s and take a day pass into the grounds, or you can sleep in you car, JUST KIDDING!

Mr Weiss and I totally lucked out as we paid for the day pass and dinner and then quietly asked after our dinner if there had been any room cancellations or openings, and guess what homies, there was.  The last suite left was the super fancy high roller deluxe extravaganza deal that usually goes for $1000 per night but we got it for the CBS (cheap bastard special) of $280!!! WORD!

After hearing so much about Mohonk and now visiting it (more facts and figures here).  I can understand the HUGE room rates, everything is included, all food and various activities… tennis, boating, golf, hiking, pool, gardens, biking, yoga, fitness classes, carriage rides, there are horse rides too, but I think you pay extra for this one.

The lake is gorgeous the 2000 acres of grounds are spectacular so one can only imagine the upkeep.  I will in the future be keeping my eyes open for special deals and rates that they do have quite often. Speaking of which they are now advertising a $199 room rate which includes all meals for the month of November, a total DEAL! So don’t be surprised if you see me lurking about there somewhere, it is truly a lovely experience.

    Awesome Toni! So that’s how you get a great deal. The next time you are in the area please give me a ring. We are just 4 miles down the road from Mohonk.

    Always wanted to spend a weekend there. I know it’s beautiful. Didn’t know it was so expensive.
