Does anyone know of any kosher hotels in the catskills for a shabbos this summer?

Sorta hotel style: Hecht's Camp Sheloh. They rent nice renovated bungalows, with food three times a day with the Yeshiva and family's. I've been there one year as well as some of my relatives and it's pretty nice. It's in Napanoch, NY -basically Ellenville.

If you like the bungalow experience, highland park (woodridge) has weekend rentals with option for food I don't really know details, except that someone Tabak who lives there all year round takes care of it (I know for sure they rent in the winter, not sure about the summer).

Lake house is brand new (most of it) lake house doesn't have that big of a lobby & neither is the place as a whole as big as the Raleigh but it still has more then enough of grounds, indoor/outdoor pool (which the Raleigh has as well) & I think the Raleigh is more expensive & much more ppl (which is not necessarily a plus or a minus just a fact.....)

Post by: howie1980 on March 25, 2015, 09:10:14 AM
My family is considering spending a summer in the Catskills.  We would need to be within 15 minutes of Liberty.  I have no idea where to begin looking for bungalows, houses etc.  I would also need day camps for my 11, 9, and 4 year olds.  Any suggestions?  Is there a resource for looking into this stuff?
Title: Re: Catskills Master Thread
Post by: DK23 on March 25, 2015, 03:51:31 PM
Not sure what type of bungalow you are looking for (ie chassidish, modern orthodox, etc.) but I have gone up to vacation village  for shabbos in the summer.  It is 10 minutes from liberty.  People rent their houses for the summer, I'm sure its not cheap but its a very nice area that is enclosed, has a lake, pools, basketball courts, all those types of amenities.  They have a shul and full beis medrash as well.

Post by: howie1980 on March 26, 2015, 05:57:42 PM
Vacation Village is perfect.  I am looking for more modern.  But where would I look if I wanted to rent there.  Their website has nothing (they'd prefer owners stay there).
Title: Re: Catskills Master Thread
Post by: DK23 on March 27, 2015, 02:23:54 PM
Good question, I personally have never rented since my wife's grandparents own a house there, but I'd bet if you call the office perhaps they can help you. 

If not then maybe there are some yahoo email groups you can join like five towns shuls or kghshuls and post a request, or use ddf if there is a thread that is meant for rentals to find someone that may be looking to rent.
Title: Re: Catskills Master Thread

There is a new pizza shop in woodbourne called the river cafe which is located across the bridge from the main part of town between the bridge and prison road. He has amazing food. his calzones and pizza are  the best upstate (and maybe anywhere). If you have the time to wait order a personal white pie which cannot be beat!

You can go to lake wallenpaupack, its in PA, about an hour away, really nice . can rent from many places , 1 is Rubber ducking.
In white lake you have Paynes, also genes.
On starlite rd in Monticello, you have swinging bridges, also starlite marina. (Only pantoons ,no speedboats)
Whatever you do call ahead to reserve, its a must.

For speedboat, genes, for pantoon, that or swinging bridges.

Closest one is probably SWF.
Title: Re: Catskills Master Thread
Post by: NTorch on July 25, 2017, 03:10:33 PM
SWF is closest but I dont think you will have an easy time getting a flight into it.

AVP (Scranton) and ALB (Albany) are both less than two hours from the Catskills and may have more options for you.

Can easily get 1-stop flight from IAH to SWF. AA through PHL and DL through DTW.

I ran a couple through Priceline and they come up with no flights between Houston (either airport) and SWF if you want to fly in on Thursday or Friday and fly back on Sunday.

That was why I suggested Alb and AVp.

SWF is Stewart.

Btw - Jet Blue flies in and out of Stewart. If you are looking to save on costs, see what you can to make your own connection and get on a Jet Blue flight to Stewart.

You may as well fly to NYC direct. NYC and ALB are both under 2h from main area of the Catskills. Connection is only worth if going to SWF 45 minutes away.

would like to take my boys on some adventure day trips this August like maybe off-roading like ATV or jeeps or a shooting range etc....
Their ages are 15, 13, 11, and 9 so not sure if they would be able to do anything without me along side them.

any experience, suggestions, specific recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
Horseback riding, tour of the Catskill Distillery, off road biking

I'm new here so if there's a better place to post this, please advise. I did try to learn the ropes first...

I have a summer job in Hurleyville and my bungalow might have just disappeared. Urgently looking for any leads for somewhere to stay that is:
1. Suitable for 3 people, can be 1 bedroom as long as the kitchen has room for a few people
2. Preferably within less than 20 minutes from Hurleyville/Morningside Park (e.g. South Fallsburg, Loch Sheldrake, some parts of Liberty or Monticello...?)
3. Preferably under $4000 including utilities
4. Looking for a crowd that is either yeshivish/modern yeshivish/old fashioned no label.

Thank you!
