Get Married in the Giraffe House at the Old Catskill Game Farm
You can soon get married at the Old Catskill Game Farm. The 'Giraffe House' is being converted into the Long Neck Inn, a place for weddings and events.
There's 5 guest rooms, each named for animals that once called The Catskill Game Farm home. Stay in 'The Giraffe Room,' the original home to April the Giraffe, or the 'Rhino Room.' A portion of each nights stay will go towards a foundation for each animal's namesake.
Doors are expected to open to the public in July but you can start making reservations in March.
No wedding in your future? Go glamping at the Old Game Farm. Choose from the wooded or overlook site options.
The Wooded Site
Tucked in the woods. You can still see parts of an old building behind the former Big Cat Exhibit. It's a great spot for smaller groups or families who want to feel like they are nestled in the woods.
The Overlook Site
Set on top of a high area outside the park that overlooks a beautiful open area where you will often see wildlife strolling through. This is a great site for large groups or families who would like to play outdoor games.
There are even canvas tents tucked into hundreds of acres of uninhabited land giving you the perfect get-a-way on a truly unique property. You can overlook a meadow to view wild life, walk miles of wooded trails or even explore the abandoned zoo during your stay. The tents include a wood stove so you can stay warm.
owner Cathy Ballone says long term plans are also underway to turn the rest of the property at the Old Game Farm into a campground and RV park with a section for seasonal campers and cabins available.
