Why We Love Our NY Resort & Lodge (and you should, too!)


For almost 60 years, Villa Roma has been catering to guests of all ages and today it is one of the leading businesses in Callicoon, NY. Here are five reasons why we love our New York resort and lodge, and you should, too!

Pamper Yourself

Here at our resort, we offer top notch Salon and Spa services. The Salon offers shampoos and styles for men, women, and children. You can even get an up-do for a special event and look your best. Other options include coloring of hair, waxing, and hand and foot therapy. After a day hiking or swimming, you might want to stop by the spa to get a warm stone or deep tissue massage. If a relaxing massage isn’t something you’re looking for, try out a facial or a wrap to help relax aching muscles.

The Stakes are High

From the Kentucky Derby to the Preakness, all eyes are on the track when racing begins. If you’re traveling to upstate New York while your favorite race is on, no need to worry. Villa Roma has its own Off Track Betting Parlor. This comfortable OTB lounge, simulcast live 6 different races from around the country. This means that you’re able to bet on races while on vacation. Win or lose, your time spent in the OTB lounge will be one to not forget.

Eat like a King

Villa Roma has multiple dining options that you won’t ever go hungry while staying at our Resort. Breakfast and dinner are served under chandeliers and hand painted murals. If the Main Dining room is too fancy for your liking, try out the Roman Garden Café. The café is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner which provides sophistication in a more informal setting.

On top of those two great dining options, located off the main lobby area are Dolce’s Ice Cream Parlor and a new Coffee Bar. Dolce’s serves Cold Stone Ice Cream and Italian Ices along with candy by the cup. The Coffee Bar features Starbucks Coffee, cappuccinos, espresso and more. Plus, it also has pastries and smaller delights to keep you moving through the day.  If you’re at the Golf course for the day check out The Pool Grill also has options for smaller lunch and snack style foods. Whichever you pick, you won’t go wrong with finding something, everyone will like!


Play like a Pro

If you’re into golfing, the Villa Roma Golf Course is just for you. With two courses one for beginners and juniors and the other for experts, you’ll find something for every level of skill. The first 9 holes are pretty easy to navigate, with the course set so it’s generous off the tee while the back 9 holes are more of a challenge. Whichever course you’re up for don’t forget to stop by the Beechwoods Restaurant and Grill for some food. This restaurant has a wall of glass so you can experience the magnificent views of the countryside both on and off the course.

Enjoy The Catskills

The Catskills offer a wide range of activities for you to do while staying at Villa Roma. Plan a horseback riding trip to the Catskills and experience upstate New York from a different view.  If you’re looking for entertainment head to the Performing Arts Center in Bethel Wood which has plenty of room as the stage is twice the size of Radio Music Hall or stop by any of the museums and art galleries available. If you’re looking to gamble outside of the OTB Lounge, head to the Monticello Casino and Raceway. You can even antique, shop, and head down the river for water sports and fishing. During the winter, hunting and skiing are always popular things to do in the Catskills.


There are so many reasons why we love our resort and what makes it stand out among the rest in upstate New York. The handful of options shown above is only a fraction of what makes Villa Roma the best New York Resort. Since our opening almost 60 years ago, it has been our pleasure, making sure you have the trip of a lifetime! Stop by and enjoy all that Villa Roma offers as a leading New York Resort and experience it for yourself. We promise you’ll love it too!
