Green Lake Resort is perched upon a hill in the heart of the Catskills and boasts a magical view of one of our area’s most stunning lakes. Set upon acres and acres of plush green grass and woodland forests, the resort has offered its hospitality for generations. It was first known as a boarding house in the 1890s, when the main building was built by the Guteriis family. At this time Green Lake welcomed its very first famous face in Jimmy Durante, who worked as a singing waiter. From the Guteriis family, ownership went to the Ritz family, two generations of McGifferts, Bruggemann, and the Cippitelli’s. Now Green Lake Resort is owned by non-profit organizations operating as a for-profit business, NYMD Green Lake. Guests can still anticipate the same Cippitelli hospitality they have come to love from the “Hostess with the Mostess,” Ida Cippitelli, and Master Chef Enzo Cippitelli.
With Green Lake Resort’s new improvements, guests can enjoy nearby golfing, hiking trails, and fishing in our private pond as well as Green Lake itself. Our full service Banquet Hall and Grandview Terrace provide a beautiful scenic vista, and the nearby lakes and mountains of the Catskills offer ample opportunities for year round recreation and scenic drives. The moment you arrive you will realize that Green Lake is something special, from the romance and beauty of the picturesque to the possibility of adventure and the memories you can build. Our warm and friendly staff will let you forget the worries of yesterday and enjoy the vacation you always dreamed of, and surely deserve. The resort is the perfect location for your next celebration, reunion, vacation, conference or retreat. Hospitality at Green Lake Resort isn’t just a word...it’s our tradition.
