Take a lively armchair visit to some of the exceptional resort hotels throughout the United States. Along the way, host Samantha Brown experiences first-hand what makes these hotel destinations popular, appealing, unique, and memorable. Each episode presents an entertaining "story" of up to two different hotel destinations, complete with encounters and eccentricities that creatively show and tell what makes each hotel a great experience. Episode 21: Do you need to trade in your hectic schedule for a little peace and tranquility? Then head for Lake Monhonk and Monhonk Mountain House, located just 90 miles north of New York City. But don't let the word "house" fool you. This resort is not only one of the country's best-kept secrets, it's actually a glorious castle built by the Smiley, family whose descendents still run the hotel today. Join Samantha Brown as she explores the hotel, its 112-year-old gardens, and the surrounding countryside via horse and wagon. Sam also takes us to high adventure along the challenge trails and takes advantage of the many lakefront activities, like fishing, boating, and more. You know how the great outdoors can make you really hungry? Well, the food at Monhonk is unbelievably good and plentiful - not to mention that it's included with the cost of a room!
