“Dieing Breed for Vacation Experience”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

Remember customer service and the intamacy of a "family" resort? The Country Place Resort will remind you. The staff is so accomodating but blend right in with the guests so it has a very friendly environment with a service emphasis on you. The staff comes in our their day off because they enjoy their job and enjoy the guests. This is every aspect of the staff. The wait staff; the front desk; the bartenders; housekeeping and ESPECIALLY the activities staff (which seams to include everybody).

Food -GREAT! It tasted like true home cooking with fresh ingredients and a different dinner menu every night.

Rooms - GREAT! Very roomy. Cleaned every day, to the extent that it smells clean, not just a quick vacuum. 2 tv's. DVD player, with movies at the front desk. I recommend the family suite. Very comfortable beds.

Water park -GREAT! Catered towards the kids, but fast enough for the adults and NO crowds, even when it was "crowded". Try Wild Water West, its hidden but guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again. Come and go as you please as your room is 5 minutes away from anywhere in the park. But they also have a private heated pool for guests only, which is a lot fun and very warm.

Grounds -GREAT! A pond where you are guaranteed to catch a fish (yes, guaranteed). Country like feel, without being in the middle of nowhere. No limitations or restrictions like you would get at most hotels/resorts. Bouncy house every night. Ball field. 3 playgrounds. Basketball courts. Big enough to play everything, but small enough where you can always see the kids and let them be a little independant.

Activities -GREAT! There is an activity every night. BUT there are also unscheduled activities, just ask can we get a softball game; kickball game; basketball game; etc, and they will round up as many guests and/or staff as possible and try to get one going.

Best part is they only have apx 24 rooms, so it can never get crowded and therefore it wont lose the intamate feel.

Room Tip: The family suites have a couch and therefore are roomier. The 1 bedroom suite has a lower and an up...

Just returned from a weekend family reunion. We couldn't have selected a better destination. The rooms were clean. The staff was excellent and very accommodating (we traveled with a large contingent of children under 12). Between the Zoom Flume park and the camping-style evening activities provided by the staff, we all had an excellent experience. All the meals were great. If you need anything, just ask. We'll definitely choose the Country Place for future family trips.

Room Tip: The front rooms facing the lodge and Zoom Flume park are much larger and more convenient.

The whole family all 10 of us went back to The Country Place. This year we took the rooms in the front of the motel. Much larger. The food was great as usual, the wait staff was not as fast as last year, but what can you do. The grandkids are a year older and can enjoy all the water rides this year. We have been coming here since the 80s. Will be back next year. Good job Frank, Claire, Denise, and staff. P.S. Thanks for making a birthday cake for my daughter it was very thoughtfull.

This resort and waterpark is perfect for families with 1 - 13 year olds. I visited with my wife and 3 children (ages 11, 9 and 1 1/2) and we all had a good time. You only have to walk across the street from the park to your room for mid-day naps and breaks. The park itself is perfectly suited for families with small children and you can easily "camp-out" in one spot while the kids go to the various slides and other attractions. My only complaint with the park itself is that there are not enough "big" rides for adults and older children (hint: please install a "funnel ride"). However, the park is clean and the lines are relatively short. The food at the resort was plentiful and much better than I expected. The servers were courteous but a little inexperienced. The one standout was "Megan", who we found to be both friendly and efficient. I liked the fact that we had the same table to ourselves during our entire stay. However, some may find the 6pm - 6:30 pm seating time for dinner a bit constraining. The nighttime activities were fun and "Joe" did a good job of organizing. Skip the hayride to the farm if you do not want your children to hear what eventually happens to the cows and pigs. If you do go, make sure you say hello to "Annie", the friendliest cat that I have ever met. The rooms at the resort were clean and well-maintained. The beds were a little short and may not be suitable for taller people. The T.V.'s could also use an upgrade. All in all, this resort offers excellent value for your money and is worth checking out. We will be returning next year.

The Country Place Resort is a quaint, family oriented resort in the Catskills. We stayed for 3 days 2 nights. I have 2 boys ages 7 & 8 and there is so much for them to do. The Zoom Flume Water Park is attached plus a heated pool, playgrounds and many many more activities.
The staff is extremely helpful and interested in your needs.

My family visited the Country Place Resort/Zoom Flume Water Park in August 2010 for 4 nights. We are a family of 5 (myself, my husband, 12 year old daughter, 8 year old daughter and 3 year old son). We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. The suite was extremely clean and comfortable for our stay. There was a queen bed in each bedroom, as well as a pull out couch in the living room. My girls shared one room, and my 3 year old son slept on a toddler size air mattress in the other bedroom with me and my husband (we brought the mattress from home). The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. We had brought a favorite blanket from home to use on our bed and when it accidentally fell in the mud when we were unpacking, the hotel staff agreed to wash and dry it for us and had it ready at dinner that evening!
The food was completely edible and what I would expect from a small family style hotel. The breakfast choices were numerous and the pancakes were delicious! All 3 of my kids had no problem finding something they liked for dinner and the adults were all satisfied, as well.
The after-dinner entertainment was well thought out and varied each night, ranging from karaoke, a magician, outdoor movie and casino night. It was very nice to see the focus on "family time" and we took advantage of the options offered each evening. There was also shuffle board and bocce courts which were fun family options for after-dinner family time, as well.
The hotel offered discount tickets to Howe Caverns or Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame. We had 2 rainy days, so we took day trips to each. The kids loved the Zoom Flume water park which is conveniently located across a beautiful walking bridge from the hotel.
All in all, a wonderful, affordable family vacation.
