Pollace’s is down the street from my Parents house where my sister and her family live. The Pollaces are very helpful and let friends and relatives stay when my sister’s house is full. Rooms are clean. There is a pool. Most people who stay get the meal plan. The food is very good. They have a trolley to take people downtown, etc. Very nice.

Booked last minute trip for 4th of July. There were not a lot of choices and found this place by chance. Updated and modern it ain't. Think old school classic Catskill Resort. Very relaxing. Friendly staff. They will do almost anything to make your stay enjoyable. Food was excellent and pleantifull. Willing to adjust for dietary or preference needs. If you don't gain a few pounds you did something wrong. Charlie the owner cooks a mean meal. Richard the social director keeps everyone engaged. Afternoon Bingo by the pool can get a bit competitive. Met lots of people who have been coming back for years. Definately adding this to places I will go back to
