Well, I wouldn't recommend this place at all ~ especially if you like to visit "RESORT type" accommodations.

Prostokvashino is perfect if you don't mind cabins that are older and run down ~ The air conditioning unit was leaking onto the living room floor leaving a puddle at all times, uncomfortable beds, dirty carpets in the bedrooms and cabins that needed at least a gallon of paint on the outside. The shower would run out of HOT water after 2 minutes and very low water pressure.

If the pool was a bucket of ice, I'm sure if it was heated it would have been okay to swim in ~ but the lounging area around the pool sure needs new chairs, tables, umbrellas and a major clean up.

The cabins also should have a screen door on them so you can keep the door open for fresh air. Also, there should be nice plastic chairs to sit on around the firepit as well, but there was just an old run-down picnic with 2 bench seats that weren't very comfortable.

If you don't mind slumming it when you go away for a nice relaxing Vacation then this is the place to stay! ...... It reminded me of where I would have stayed when I was a young girl going off to CAMP for the week!

If you visit our web site at (commercial URL) , you'll be able to see outside and inside tour with actual photos and decide for yourself if it’s suitable for you, your family, and your friends. Also you can find photos from one of our customers website from the last year vacation. As you can see from photos, we are located in old Catskill resort area in country setting. Within 3 years of our ownership we did a lot of renovations and built new deluxe rooms. We do have older cabins (but anyway flooring, kitchen, appliances, windows, bedding were completely upgraded within last 2 years), we also have new deluxe rooms, we have 2 and 3 bedroom luxury apartments w/Jacuzzi, mirror closets, glass expensive showers, kitchenette, etc. Some people like to stay in old camping style places, some in new Cancun type hotels. We do have people who are coming here every year and they like nature, friendly atmosphere, evening parties in the bar, surrounding attractions, fishing, hunting, etc. But we also do have people, like the one who wrote review, who's expecting 5 star hotel amenities for the price of penny.

In reply to this review about cabin C8:
1. This people, fishermen's, were staying here for a week and they never complained to me or shift manager about anything. Even when I spoke with them asking about their fishing experience, nothing bad was said, it was most polite conversation. The only negative emotions were about bad weather and not enough success in catching bass at bass tournament. I understand that this could be depressing.
2. We do have outdoor pool. If weather is hot and sunny, people are swimming. If it's cold and rainy, nobody goes in the pool, besides kids, who swim even under a rain. Our pool is open 24/7 for people who like to swim at sunrise and people who like to take a dip after having party at the moonlight. We have plans to build indoor endless fitness pool with sauna and massage room. This project is currently under Health Department approval in preconstruction process.
3. AC is not leaking, I've checked. It was installed last year and we never had problems w/it. There was water coming from the bathroom after 6 people took shower. And that also damaged floor, we just installed last year.
4. Instant water heater is brand new and installed a month ago. There are controls for gas flow and water pressure. It works, if nobody trying to play w/it (especially kids, who likes to turn everything they see). There is also safety future to shut heater down after 20 min of continuous use. I've asked guy, who's staying there today about shower, he said everything was in working order. It was mistake at our part that we didn’t box heater in, so people can’t have access to controls. It will be corrected.
5. Carpet was installed last year, but now it does have some dirty spots after travelers like fishermen's, hunters and constructors, who's bringing a lot of mud home and don't change shoes before going into bedrooms. We are vacuuming carpets after every stay or per customers request and steam washing it in the beginning and end of the season. Unfortunately we can't do steam washing every time, due to limited time cleaning before reservations in summer time.
6. This cabin does need some outside painting, but past years we were paying more attention for changing TV's, Kitchen, gas stoves, floors, carpets, windows, doors, building new deluxe rooms, etc. Instead of painting outside we are planning to put vinyl siding around all cabins. This work is scheduled for next year.
7. Nobody yet was complaining that we have outrages pricing. $600/week for 2 bedroom cabin with full kitchen – please find better deal and I’ll give you free night stay. Most of our customers are telling us that we could charge much more for what we offer.
8. Outdoor furniture partially needs replacement, partially new. Agreed on that. Scheduled for the next year. Some furniture being broken by kids jumping on them. Every year by the end of the season we have to replace about 30-50% of outdoor furniture.
9. Screen doors we installed 1 year ago in all units, they lasted 3 month. This year we installed new, more expensive commercial screen doors. Lots of screens are ripped by kids and household pets already. We are fixing them as we have possibility. But please, watch your kids and animals and try not to damage your accommodations just because they are temporary for you. And don’t write your names everywhere “I’ve been here”, “Ricci loves Lucy”, etc.
10. Yes, we still have to do a lot of improvements, but we are constantly working on it as fast as we can. Currently we are finishing new 2-3 bedrooms deluxe apartments, planning to reconstruct restaurant/bar area, building laundry on premises, panning to rebuild kid’s playground, etc. Unfortunately we can't do everything at once. And please don’t destroy what was done already, don’t steal pictures just because they would look good on your walls, don’t let your kids through rock at the windows and then say “Ooops, sorry”, don’t party all night having good time in front of your sleeping neighbor door, don’t through garbage everywhere expecting somebody else to pick it up after you, don’t behave like you’ve paid money to be a pig. Most problems we have, not because we are not working to fix it, not because we don’t do anything to improve, not because we don’t spend enough money for upgrades, but because of people who doesn’t respect work of another people.
11. Keep in mind, that our area is the oldest Albany-NY vacation area; it's not new constructions in Las Vegas or Florida. It is old. But we are doing a lot of work every year to bring accommodations to new standards, bring more comfort to YOU – TRAVELER.
We are not liars, we are not hiding anything from you, we are not promising you Caesar Palace or Hilton Hotel. But we are giving you nice quiet property in country setting. We are providing you with clean, comfortable, affordable accommodations. We are giving you friendship and care from our staff.
We are giving you FREE Internet access. We are giving you choice to cook yourself, eat at our restaurant (which, by the way, have a very good reputation for our buffalo wings), dine in any of multiple diners, fine cuisine restaurants, McDonalds, Chinese food, etc. We are not trying to make you live by our schedule and eat our choice of food, we are offering you variety of options of which accommodation to use (more you pay, better it gets), what food to eat and when, when go to a pool (24 hour access), what to do (just lay by the pool or go visit nearby attractions). We are just 2 min away from Game Farm Zoo, Bailiwick Ranch with horseback riding, ATV, paintball. We are within 15-20 min from Zoom Flume water park, Hudson River with cruises and beaches, North-South State Park Lakes, Hunter and Windhum Mountains with skiing in winter and festivals in summer, and many other attractions and events. Please come visit us next year, and you will see for yourself how much difference every year brings. Become one of SATISFIED customers, who are coming to us year after year, who become our friend, who’s helping us with their advice and support. And that’s 99% of our clientele.

Thank you for your input and hope to see you again to prove that life is good and not gray, even when it’s raining and you can’t catch a fish ;)

To have a vacation in Prostokvashino Resourt is a neat way to have fun for the whole family. Our family of four spent quite a few days there this summer! We have enjoyed soft grean grass and beautiful veiw from our cottage (on mountins, clouds and the stars-full sky). Our sons (12 and 1 year-old)were swimming in the pool, running around and having a lot of fun. The close proximity of the Catskill Game Farm, Bailiwick Ranch , North-South lake gave them numerous opportuninies to have some encounters with animals: the nursery part of the Game Farm was great; horseback riding - lots of fun, fishing and boat rides - relaxing and exciting! As for us, Erin's House Bar and resaurant provided plenty of entertainment! Besides exellent drinks and meals that we enjoyed there, pool playing, dancing, and karaoki nights were full of fun and laughter. It's THE BEST way to get away from concrete streets of NYC, and busy and hectic city life. We loved it in Prostokvashino! P.S. The rates are VERY reasonable too!
