This upstate New York resort’s lake, bowling alleys and cabins were the setting for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”’s Catskills summer retreat.
Now it can be yours for a mere $6 million.
The Scott’s Family Resort in upstate Deposit, which has been operating for 150 years, is on the market. The owners had announced in a January Facebook post that they were forced to close “due to circumstances beyond our control.”
The resort had become too expensive to keep up, according to The Journal News website lohud.com. “This whole coronavirus thing has brought everything to a screeching halt,” Patty Scott Holdrege, a daughter of the current owners, told lohud. “I’m sad — this is all I’ve ever done.”
The resort had been in operation since 1869 but faced declining business in recent years. The property was put up for sale in 2018 but managed to stave off closure after the episodes of “Mrs. Maisel” aired.
The creators of the Emmy-winning Amazon Prime comedy chose the resort for its décor, which had remained relatively unchanged since the 1950s, when the show is set. The era was the heyday of the Borscht Belt, when New Yorkers would stream out of the city for summers in the Catskill Mountains’ Jewish resorts and bungalow colonies.
