My family desperately needed a getaway over Memorial Day weekend, and The Country Place Resort was the only place I could find in the Catskills with availability. Since the water park next door was not yet open for the season, Country Place was offering a Memorial Weekend special that was fairly good value. The place is definitely not fancy, but... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about our property. We are glad that you enjoyed your getaway. Surprisingly, the resort stays low key and roomy while the park is bustling and busy during the season. That's what most of our guests enjoy most about staying with us, they can get the fun and excitement of the... More

I stayed here last summer and we had a really nice time. Zoom flume water park which is next door is the main attraction. The rooms are ok, comfortable and clean but not fancy. The food is pretty mediocre and of course the wait for food can be long at times given that there are young kids working there, but...... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Your remarks are well taken. We had several comments about the less than consistent quality of the food last year. We hired a new chef this year and as you can see from the reviews this year, the food is outstanding. We are getting excellent reviews about our staff as... More

Long time loyal guests (approx. 10 years). Love that they reinvest in themselves every year. There are always new water rides at the attached water park (and its free to hotel guests). Love the clean modern rooms, but above all is the service - consistently a 5. Service - Patti is terrific! We showed up and our family was assigned... More

Apparently we were very lucky to be able to book on short notice. And for good reason. We called right after a cancellation and were able to get our room. I will touch on the activities later, but first want to mention that, for us, the staff here really make the place stand out. Everyone was nice, but there were... More

We had such a relaxing and fun time on our vacation. The resort had a lot for the family to do during the day from tennis to bocce to fishing.

Have been to the Country Place/Zoom Flume Water Park several times over the years. The price includes breakfast and diner, wristbands to the waterpark, and some other little perks. Each year they seem to add a new attraction or renovate another set of rooms. The owners are friendly,the staff nice, just a very relaxing place to stay. The Country Place... More

This was our family's first trip to a resort, of any kind. We didn't really know what to expect. The staff was courteous and attended to all our needs. The rooms were large, clean and well maintained. And the Zume Flume was exciting. I've got 3 young kids and they had a blast. We stayed for 3 days and nights.... More

The good: friendly staff, lots of activities, pretty clean. The bad: retro would be a good way to look at the "resort", "dated" is probably more accurate, heated outdoor pool was small and uninviting, we left a night early and they refunded only 40% of the whopping $300/night fee for some reason. The ugly: the food was AWFUL, the water... More
