My husband and I just took a day trip to Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon, NY. We were trying to return to a fun time in our lives by going to see their entertainment - Lepore & Hart, a singing group we had met on a cruise many years ago. When we first met, my husband said "I know him" and Frank Lepore said the same thing. Seems they grew up together as teens at the shore in NJ and lived one block away from each other. Villa Roma....what can I say. It's like finding a needle in a haystack, a pearl in an oyster. Drive for miles and miles and nothing and then this big wonderful, almost city itself, pops up. Although we did not stay there, we must say the hotel is beautiful, great food and nice staff. There is something for everyone there from what we could see. We saw seniors, young families and young people and they were all enjoying themselves. One goodie is a jitney bus always on hand to drive you where you want to go. Yes, it is that big. Since I had inquired about our friend the entertainer, I looked into Villa Roma to see what they offered. They do have great package deals during holidays and open all year 'round. So if you are into cold weather (brrrrr) or hot weather fun, Villa Roma has it all. I know they have many bus trips there. I often heard of senior groups going there but after our being there, I can tell you quite honestly, it is not just a haven for seniors - every one was there. Go, enjoy and don't forget to check out our friend Frank Lepore & Lynn Hart. 3 shows a night on weekends only. I do hope they continue to play there. I want to have our friends go there to see/hear them and see what Villa Roma is all about.
Only a day trip, did not stay there.
