Mohonk Mountain House

Here’s some pictures of where we are living for the summer. Andy and I are both working as servers in the dining room at Mohonk Mountain House near the town of New Paltz, New York. Some money gets deducted from our weekly paychecks to pay for our nice size two bedroom dorm room and three meals a day and we get full use of the hiking trails as well as the lake to swim in. So far we’ve been enjoying our time on the east coast and have been trying to take advantage of any opportunities that we have to explore the area.

This is a view from the lake of the Mountain House.  This is where the guests stay, the dorm Andy and I live in is on the other side of this building.

Behind Andy's head you can see Sky Top Tower up on the ridge, it used to be used as a fir tower and you can see some nice vies from up there.

These little huts are everywhere lining the trails so that people who come from the city and are afraid of the outdoors can still feel like they're in civilization.  They are also fun to relax in.

Mohonk has a lot of gardens and this is the victorian maze made out of arbovita.

  1. How much did the dorm actually cost? My brother is looking into working there, but we werent sure if it would be cost effective if living was substancial

    • Rebe- the dorm was not very much at all… I don’t remember exactly how much, but far less than just about any other living situation you could come up with; a great deal. The staff food tended to be pretty bad though.
