Celebrating A Century of Family

For the past 100 years, Five Generations of Nicholsens have welcomed families to the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County, NY.

In 1920, Peter and Gurine Nicholsen began our journey by creating this beautiful mountain escape for couples and families. Now their Grand Children, Great-Grandchildren and Great-Great-Grandchildren carry on their legacy.

We're always thrilled to welcome new guests and are always excited to see them year after year! It's a century-long tradition: Children go on a Sunny Hill vacation with their parents, and we get to see them grow into adults who bring their kids back again and again.

Plan not to plan
