Step Into the Gilded Age

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.
