The archetypal private mountain estate you’ve been dreaming of, tucked on over thirty acres in the Catskill Forest. All-inclusive. No worries. Creative and epicurean…
An extraordinary 1880’s Gilded Age mansion built by the Fleischmanns Yeast family, this archetypal Catskills estate has brought family, friends, and dreamers together for over a hundred years. The walls of this great house are filled with memories of laughter, of music, of conversations, of strengthening bonds. Elegantly rustic. Charming. Welcoming. Over 30 acres of forests and meadows traversed with gentle walking trails past moss-covered ruins. A superb kitchen with an innovative chef. Hand-selected, hand-crafted wines, beers, and spirits. Eight splendid bedrooms, each delightfully unique. The perfect porch for stories and cigars. Stars. The smell of woodsmoke and the sound of wind in the pines. A deer, pausing at the pond at dawn.

Let’s talk about finding magic at Spillian. What are you dreaming?
Please give us a call at 800.811.3351 or drop us an email with your ideas about making magic at Spillian!
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 800-811-3351. Cell service can be a bit spotty in the Catskills but folks up here are used to being helpful, so don’t hesitate to stop and ask if you get really turned around and your phone isn’t working.
If you drive up and are here in the winter, please note that we have a long gravel driveway. We plow and salt this regularly, but if you are at all concerned about not being able to make it up the hill, please call us at 800-811-3351 and we can arrange to have you park at the bottom of the hill and we can ferry you up and down in our monster plow truck, that doubles as a tank. It’s rarely a problem, but is always an option if you are nervous!
