“We have found that place that everyone is looking for in life. The Beautiful Blackthorne Resort is located in the base of the beautiful Catskill Mountains. You will never find a more relaxing and friendlier place to stay. The Handel family invites you and your family in and treats you as though you are part of the family. You must really make it a point to come and stay and enjoy the entertainment and the atmosphere and the great food. Once you have experienced the Resort and all it has to offer you will definitely want to come back! This is home away from home without having all the headaches.”

“Coming up to the Blackthorne for over 20 years may have made me biased. This is a very family friendly place to stay.The grounds are well kept. The staff is wonderful. I highly recommend this as a place to stay for the young and old.”
