Mohonk Mountain House has unveiled Grove Lodge, the resort’s first new accommodations in more than a century. Nestled next to a fern grove on the northeast side of the 1200-acre property, Grove Lodge features six bedrooms and a great room, with custom-designed furniture from local craftsmen.
“For 147 years, the Smiley Family has been committed to conserving this unique natural environment along the Shawangunk Ridge and creating unforgettable experiences for our guests within it,” said Eric Gullickson of Mohonk Mountain House. “Grove Lodge exemplifies this perfectly. Its secluded location is surrounded by ferns within a mature oak glen, yet is only a five-minute walk from our historic mountain house, which offers families an ideal home away from home that truly reflects the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley.”
Designed and constructed by Andrew J. Allison from AJA Architecture and Planning, the new 7000-square-foot, two-story lodge is comprised of native stones, reclaimed wood and sustainable materials. Each of the six guest rooms is outfitted with a stone fireplace, handmade furnishings, and a bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower.
Guests who reserve all six rooms will have access to the lodge’s 1080-square-foot great room, which boasts cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, hardwood floors and a private patio with the rocking chairs. A table made by local craftsman Robert Dellay serves as a gathering space. Artwork includes selections from Nora Scarlett’s “Trunks in the Gunks” collection. The lodge also features custom-made dressers and desks by the Dover Plains-based Hunt Furniture.
Starting this month, guests will be able to book a single room in the lodge or rent the entire building, including the great room, for a family gathering or group retreat. Meals and most resort activities are included in the nightly rate. For more information visit www.mohonk.com/grove-lodge.
