ESCAPE THE CITY AND EXPLORE AN ABANDONED WORLD GONE BY

Due to improvements being made, only guests staying at The Old Game Farm have access to explore the property.

Experience a Unique & Secluded Getaway

Once considered America's greatest zoo, The Catskill Game Farm housed over 2,000 animals with tens of millions of people having visited during its 73 year history. Today you can stay on the abandoned property and explore what remains.

The zoo housed thousands of animals such as lions, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and kangaroos. It even had a pen to feed the animals.

The Catskill Game Farm opened in 1933 and was the first privately owned zoo in America and later became the largest.

TESTIMONIALS

"It was close enough to go for a few days but unique enough that we felt like we had been on vacation. The Inn is charming and loved all the memorabilia from it's time as a zoo. The abandoned cages on the grounds were so interesting and overgrown, but the pathways were well kept for ease of walking."

VICKI

"We had an amazing time. The Inn is really special. Beautifully restored and very comfortable. We had everything we needed yet had total privacy.The grounds are a blast to explore, and the surrounding area is amazing for hiking, fishing, etc. If you're looking for something unique and nostalgic this is it."

ADAM

"The room is absolutely beautifully decorated and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The sheets were beyond soft. The public spaces are beautifully decorated and so clean. Everything is self service but clearly marked... A clean kitchen, fresh brewed coffee in the morning."
