Just over an hour's drive north of New York City, the Hudson Valley has become a major destination for anyone who loves food, wine, natural beauty, and a chance to feel like you're a million miles away from the bustle of city life. Our favorite spot to head to is the Mohonk Mountain House, a sprawling castle-like estate that bears no small resemblance to the hotel in The Shining. Lest you think that we mean that in a negative way, let us assure you, that there's nothing we like more than wandering aimlessly through a hedge maze or drinking in the perfect hotel bar. As long as you don't run across any kids muttering red rum red rum
, we think you'll be just fine.
