Scott’s Family Resort from ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ for sale by owners

For more than 150 years, Scott’s Family Resort has beckoned families to its nearly 1,000 bucolic acres.

But the waterfront compound in Deposit, New York — just under a three-hour drive from the city — is best known as the idyllic backdrop for a few beloved episodes of Amazon Prime’s hit series, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

The Catskills retreat in Delaware County, near Binghamton in upstate New York, has been operating since 1869.

But now, due to lingering debts and the ailing health of its owners, who are in their 90s, the Scott family is ready to pass the torch to a new proprietor for $6 million. The auction for the property ended on Sept. 17 without a qualified bid, so it still remains on the market.

The restaurant temporarily closed in March shortly after the state’s safer-at-home order, deciding not to continue take-out services. By June, many local restaurants had reopened, but Big Al Capone’s was not one of them.

During the shutdown, owners Annie and John Schmitz retired and put the historical property up for sale, as of Sept. 20, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. 

Restaurant’s history includes gangsters, ghosts

The building was originally built in 1846 as the Stage Coach Inn and Fuhrman Hotel and had earned a place on the State Historical Registry, according to The Reporter archives.
