You Can Spend The Night At This Historic Former Zoo In New York

If you’re planning a trip to New York, there are tons of places to stay. But how many of them combine history, beauty, and charm? The Catskill Game Farm opened in the 1940s as the first privately-run zoo in America. It would later become the largest zoo in the country. It’s now a hotel where you can stay overnight and explore the fascinating property!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Best of all, visitors are allowed to explore the property at their leisure. Many buildings still stand from the zoo’s heyday, and you can almost smell the animals as you walk through the abandoned barns.
