A Family Snow Retreat
Spillian makes the perfect family snow retreat for friends and family! It’s a fantasy place to return to after spending the day downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing in the Catskills. Spillian is about five minutes away from Belleayre Mountain Ski Center, about ten minutes from Plattekill Mountain, and about a half an hour from Hunter Mountain and Windham Mountain.
Looking for a special adventure in the mountains cross country skiing or show shoeing on trails? Just ask. We can hook you up with the best guides in the Catskills for extraordinary winter mountain experiences.
Winter is a Special Kind of Magic
Winter is a special kind of magic here in the Catskills – still, deep, heartbreakingly beautiful. Here’s a little taste of a poem entitled How Is It That the Snow from Robert Haight, published by The Poetry Foundation that we think begins to capture how its stillness opens up the world:
How is it that the snow
amplifies the silence,
slathers the black bark on limbs,
heaps along the brush rows?
Spillian awaits when you return from that snow-covered magic, with silver service glowing in the firelight, games and books and blankets and an extraordinary front porch to wrap yourself in. We can provide exquisite catered meals and a variety of slightly sybaritic services if you wish. Just ask! Call us at 800-811-3351 to learn more.
