How often do you get the chance to own a historic resort, let alone one with Hollywood ties? Well, that opportunity is now as the Catskills property used in season 2 of Amazon Prime Original The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel just hit the market for $6 million.
Dubbed the Steiner Resort, the inn is where Midge and her family vacationed as she was going through a divorce. The resort was the perfect backdrop as it has been in operation for 150 years after opening in 1869. It started as a summer boarding house for just 50 guests paying $8 a week. But over the years, the family added more facilities and accommodations, including a dining hall, The Casino (called The Play House), a general store, bowling alley, lakeside cottages, and more. It became very popular over the years for summer getaways and weddings and even attracted the attention of Dirty Dancing location scouts (although they ended up filming elsewhere).
While the name of the actual resort is different—it’s called Scott’s Oquage Lake House Resort—the buildings are all exactly what you saw in the show. The lucky owner would get Midge’s family’s cottage, the two-story guest house, a golf course, a private lake, and 1,000 acres of land. If run as an inn (or a camp), you could welcome up to 134 guests at a time.
“This is a spectacular unique opportunity to own a true piece of history, stake a claim in roughly one thousand acres of upstate New York timberland, farmland, and lakefront recreational land on the prestigious and one hundred percent private, 135-acre Oquaga Lake,” reads the listing.
“For generations, it has been the answer for those who have sought refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Visitors arrive weary and burdened, but always depart refreshed and renewed.”
