My family and I have been coming to Wolff’s for the last 10 years. When friends ask me about Wolff’s I say it reminds me of Dirty Dancing…just in the present. Our group has been as large as 20 or as small as 11. Wolff’s has a feeling of stepping back and slowing down. Each full day starts with breakfast (breakfast and supper are included in your package). It’s typical fare (cereal, eggs, bread, meat, and pancakes or French toast). At Wolff’s, you can always order as much as you’d like. At the end of breakfast, your waitress will take your supper order – usually 3 entrée choices. Since it’s all-you-can-eat, sometimes my husband orders all 3! Supper always has soup/salad and dessert.
What to do at Wolff’s? Hang out at the pool, play shuffleboard, fish (private property, no NY license needed, but bring your own poles and equipment), hike, play mini golf, use the driving range, arrange a massage (for an extra fee), go to Happy Hour (which always has free snacks)….lots of options! If you want to leave the resort, there are several things to do nearby (several golf courses, Cat’n Around the Catskills, Irish Tea Shop in Durham, Hudson River Cruises, and Emerson Kaleidoscope, just to name a few…). Evenings at Wolff’s has bingo, horse racing, a magician, a movie, a DJ, etc. There is something planned for each night.
I must address some complaints from other posts: Are the accommodations a bit outdated or is there a musty smell? Let’s remember this is not a high-end resort in the Caribbean. This is a SEASONAL resort that began in the 30’s with major growth through the 70’s. The current owners, Mike and Ellen, make updates each year, but this is a LARGE resort maintained by ONE FAMILY. The rooms do get renovated (new mattresses, new TVs), but I’m sure it’s a constant rotation of need. As far as a mildew smell, I find that once the air conditioner is turned on (usually off during check-in), any smell disappears (again, possibly just closed up…). Have I ever felt unsafe or the rooms being at risk in any way? NEVER. Mike or Ellen being unavailable? Well, again, this is a large family resort. It is hard to man the front desk when you are also running the kitchen, maintaining the grounds, sometimes even tending the bar!!
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with delicious home-style meals included (2), lovely public spaces, nighttime entertainment, and a chance to reconnect with your friends and family, this is the place for you! Give a classic a chance….you won’t regret it.
