What is our fascination with the past? The people and places of our past hold a special place in our hearts. Take the Nevele Grand Resort in the Catskills. Whether you visited there, worked there or just remember the television commercials, the Nevele is part of our past. Let's take a look around the Nevele Grand Hotel as it looks today.
As you scroll through the pictures below you will see the the remnants of a once prestigious vacation destination in Wawarsing, New York. For 108 years this resort welcomed guests for for skiing, skating and swimming. Today you will see that, in some ways, time stood still once the doors were closed in 2009. Skis, boots and skates are still resting in the rental office as if they are waiting to be used again.
The pictures and video below will show you the old theatre, indoor ice skating rink, indoor and outdoor pools, ski lodge, daycare and so much more. This is a shot of the outdoor pool and hot tub. Imagine how mant people were drawn to this over the years.
According to Wikipedia, as recently as January 2022, developers are proposing a renovation and reimagining of the property and re-launching as a new resort hotel as well as a residential facility.
As you will see in these pictures, a renovation would be quite an undertaking. It would be nice to have someone return this old resort back into a jewel of the Hudson Valley. Let's see what it was like before we see it abandoned.
