A few years ago I visited a grand Victorian castle called Mohonk Mountain House in New York's spectacular Hudson Valley to shoot a segment for Get Fresh with Sara Snow. Mohonk Mountain House is set on 2,200 acres in New Paltz, New York (just 90 miles north of New York City). I was there to learn about guided meditation from Nina Smiley and to visit their brand new spa – something I highly recommend!
But you can go just to relax. I just learned of an exciting giveaway they’re doing to celebrate the fact that they just received a 2010 Fodor's Choice Gold Award as one of the "Best Hotels for Kids and Families." Their Kids' Club has also been recognized by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the best children's programs in the country, and it is complimentary to overnight guests of the resort. Right now Mohonk Mountain House is giving away a two-night stay to a family of four!
The two-night getaway includes charming accommodations, all meals and most resort activities for up to four guests sharing a room.
It's simple to enter, just send your name, address and telephone number to email@example.com by August 31, 2010.

Now that I’m a mom, all of this great family fun stuff means something to me. It’s the perfect escape – activities for the kids so you can hit the spa!
