The quaint New York resort that was featured in the show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is up for sale for the first time since its 1869 opening for $6million.
Scott’s Family Resort, located in Deposit, New York, is under a three-hour drive from the city and features 134 rooms, cottages and guests houses on 1,000-acres near the spring-fed Oquaga Lake.
The waterfront oasis is now on sale by the Scott family, which has run the old-fashioned resort for six generations, who want to pass the historic venue to a new proprietor.
Business at the Catskills resort in Delaware County has slowed in recent years and owners Doris and Ray Scott are in their nineties, are facing lingering debts, and ailing health.
An auction for the property ended on September 17 without a qualified bid so the resort is still on the market.
The venue is normally open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day but is currently closed due to the pandemic, but it’s still available to rent out for private events and tours.
The resort features a ballroom that includes a classic ice cream and soda fountain as well as a bowling alley from the 1900s with hand-set pins.
The estate also has a boathouse, docks, barns, an 18-hole golf course and hundreds of acres of woods and pastures.
The estate also offers water sports on the lake as well as tennis courts, volleyball and shuffleboard.
The resort saw a boom in business after it was featured on Amazon Prime’s The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, which is set in the 1950s and 60s and follows a housewife’s journey to become a comedian.
In the show she spends summer at fictitious ‘Steiner Resort’, which is set at the Scott resort.
In the show her family is seen dancing at the venue, enjoying picnics, bowling and watching July 4 fireworks on the lawn.
Scott’s Family Resort was transformed into the show’s Steiner Resort for six weeks in the summer of 2018 to film three episodes of the hit series.
‘It had the best year ever after “Mrs. Maisel” filmed there,’ Jonathan Meyerhoff, 52, who is married to the Scotts’ daughter, Jai Hari Meyerhoff, said to the New York Post.
He had been a visitor at the local spot since the 1970s and his parents were performers there.
‘So many people come back here. Everybody loves the family vibe,’ he said.
