Venue Features
The Scene:

Imagine driving up a long driveway out of the 21st Century and into a more gracious era on your completely private 33 acre estate... Your first glimpse of the mansion comes at the turn in the road, a superb, renovated 1880's Great Camp that captures the essence of the Gilded Age. A 19th Century rustic gazebo perches on the lawn, gazing down at the pond, and you watch the clouds roll in across the valley as you step onto the porch - deep, running the length of the house - with a portico so ladies could step out of their carriage without managing the weather, rocking chairs waiting for you to come and soak in the views. Inside the house, it's the place you should have had in your family - appointed in an elegant layering of history and comfort, with antiques and fine art, breathing with the joy of generations of gatherings, filled with beauty. The grounds are evocative...forests and hidden meadows with springs and moss-covered ruins, with clearings for celebrations and meetings and an inviting sense of the unexplored wildness of the Catskills. Spillian is a place to revel. In ideas, in possibility, in family, in friendship.

Design:

The Mansion: A superb 19thC Catskills Great Camp built as part of the Fleischmanns Yeast family's summer compound, with unique original wall frescos and mellowed pine walls, furnished with a gorgeous collection of antique and contemporary pieces, lots of silver, oriental rugs, and two working fireplaces; a dining room with three chandeliers and a mahogany table that seats twenty; a great room with antique Steinway grand and harp; a light-filled tavern wrapped in windows; and eight marvelous, unique bedrooms.

The Meadow:  A secluded clearing with stone-ringed bonfire area, picnic tables, and a magical stone stage, perfect for large or small gatherings, ceremonies, performances, and presentations, just moments from the mansion.

The Glade: A cleared level glade in the forest with stone walls – a cathedral in the woods – future site of an extraordinary rustic pavilion and amphitheater, also moments from the mansion.

The Heartwood: acres of forest and meadows with over a mile of trails to wander on foot or snow shoes, with springs and evocative stone ruins.

Eats & Drinks
Food, Restaurants, Cafes, Bars & Lounges
Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
Spillian hosts a chef's collective that specializes in creating custom menus with our guests. Highlights include a Korean/Ukrainian fusion menu and a full Bhukarian feast, both created for weddings. We have close relationships with local farmers and food producers, including produce, hand-crafted cheeses, locally raised meats, maple syrup, etc., and pride ourselves on offering what we consider a new Catskills cuisine - food that evokes the mountains and its memories.
Bars & Lounges:
Spillian's Tavern is in a light-drenched room that was originally part of the porch, and we offer a full bar selection, specializing in local and hand-crafted spirits, beers, and wines. There are several world-class distilleries and craft breweries in our area, and we feature their artwork.
We also craft creative signature drinks based on local ingredients - don't miss our Trout Tale - a beautiful and refreshing micro-local cocktail made with Union Grove Vly CreekVodka (an apple based vodka made with local apples, pressed in a 100 year old cidery just a few minutes from us  theand then distilled just down the road), Tree Juice Maple Syrup (made just over the mountain), fresh mint from our gardens, and carbonated water.
