High up in the unspoiled foothills of the Catskill Mountains, the evergreens are tall, the air is fresh and clean and the stars dance like jewels in the nighttime sky. Nestled quietly among all of this beauty is a crystal clear, spring-fed lake known as Oquaga. For generations, it has been the answer for those who have sought refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Visitors arrive weary and burdened, but always depart refreshed and renewed.
Since 1869, six generations of the Scott Family have been providing vacations on Beautiful Oquaga Lake, making Scott's Family Resort one of the most enjoyable destinations in Upstate New York. As you make your way through the main entrance, you'll immediately get a sense of the rich history behind the name. Rustic buildings, lobbies adorned with antique furniture, modest, comfortable guestrooms and a unique assortment of facilities, all combining to bring up images of a bygone era. Of course, elements of the modern world can still be found here, but what truly sets us apart is our unique blend of recreation, relaxation and old-fashioned charm, along with the kind of warm hospitality that only a family can deliver. As the sign above the office door reads: "Love Is Spoken Here."
Our grounds encompass nearly 1100 acres and include everything from two nine hole golf courses, hiking trails, and lake frontage to tennis courts, shuffleboard, and a 3200 square foot hardwood dance floor. Additionally, we offer dancing and live entertainment every night and plan a full schedule of activities each day, with three delicious meals served in between. What's more, all are included in your stay! Our goal is to make you feel at home, taking the worry out of your vacation so that you'll want to return again and again. If you're in search of a one-of-a-kind experience for your next family reunion, romantic getaway, destination wedding, workshop or group retreat, the Scott Family will be happy to take care of the rest.
