Find Your Genius

The perfect location for your business event: meetings, intimate corporate & organizational retreats, and leadership gatherings. A private, elegant, anything-but-institutional setting, Spillian inspires connections, conversation, and ideas.

Come for a day for an extraordinary meeting or come for several for a retreat that can change how your organization walks in the world in a very special Catskills corporate retreat. This estate brings focus and a sense of possibility. And these mountains invite adventure and powerful connections. We’d love to share them with you.

The facility includes:

  • Meeting space for up to 75 people indoors
  • Great Room/meeting room with antique furniture and a wood burning fireplace
  • Formal dining room that seats 20 with a wood burning fireplace
  • Sun room with bar/breakfast bar and additional table seating that is perfect for meals, receptions, or break out sessions
  • Fully licensed, gorgeous commercial kitchen (that is great for cooking classes!) and a superb, innovative chef who works closely with local farmers to bring the freshest Catskills cuisine to the table
  • Full liquor license with staffing as needed
  • A deep porch suitable for receptions and breakout sessions
  • Technology: WiFi, sound system, video projector and full sized screen for presentations
  • Flexible seating for group presentations and meals
  • 8 exquisite bedrooms with shared baths (can configure as smaller suites with private baths), and lodging affiliates close by for larger groups
  • A meadow with stone-ringed bonfire area and a superb stone stage, perfect for large or small groups and presentations
  • 32 acres of forest and meadows with trails to wander, with springs and a small pond
  • Steinway grand piano and Salvi Concert Grand Harp in the Great Room
  • Contracts with a wide range of service providers, from body workers to outdoor recreation, and additional lodging for larger groups than can be housed on site
  • A growing menu of fully-customizable retreats built around a particular theme

We have a superb in-house chef who has created food for a wide range of audiences and who can creatively respond to all of your culinary needs, and staff that can concierge your time with us as lightly or extensively as you wish.

Where is your organization heading? We can help you find the answers.
