44 Beautiful countryside with many fine estates.

Guest Houses: The Red Pheasant. There are two "birds," one downtown
and the other on the hill. These are small and quiet. The kind many people
prefer. Between them, about 20 guests are accommodated. A. For 2, $8.00
up. FPark.

family. Top-notch accommodations, but not cheap. A. For 2, $18.00 up.

MOHONK LAKE, N. Y. Pop. 75. (Socony N-13) 18 Mi. W. of Pough-

299 I doubt if resorts come any finer than this. A magnificent estate of thou-
sands of acres on a mountain top with a beautiful lake. Quiet, with guests
that return year after year until they come in wheel chairs. Golf, riding,
tennis, lawn bowls, swimming, and many fine walks through the woods. It
would seem that the Smiley family have spent every dollar they ever made on
landscaping and beautifying the mountain.
