The Handel family would like to welcome you to the Blackthorne Resort! Over the span of three generations we have been working to build our extended family here in the Catskill Mountains and we would love to make you a part of it. Take a trip out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life and step back in time, when things were just more simple. Here at the Blackthorne we can’t offer you the highest speed of WiFi available but we would like to give you something even more valuable, memories. Let us help you get back to the basics and unplug from everything that weighs us down. Creating timeless memories that will last a lifetime is our specialty and families who have been coming back annually for as long as 20 years can attest to that. What starts out as planning a family getaway like any other can turn into so much more and that is the beauty of a stay at the Blackthorne!
