Set against the backdrop of The Great Northern Catskill Mountains of Greene County, NY, the Blackthorne Resort is the perfect location for your Wedding, Party, or  Family Reunion.  We provide the personal service and attention that keep our guests coming back – year after year.

The Blackthorne Resort compound covers over 100 acres in the scenic hamlet of East Durham, NY.  Our 85 guest rooms provide a range of amenities that fit any budget, and our full-service dining room serves over 300 guests comfortably all seasons of the year.  Springtime is lovely with blooming flowers and gentle breezes. Summers are spectacular, surrounded by trees and mountain streams. Our Catskill Mountain Autumns show off the best foliage in the country, and we’re just a short drive from world-class skiing and snowboarding on both Windham and Hunter mountains.

For outdoor events, our pool and pavilion make a great focal point for parties and Family Reunions throughout the warmer months. From a casual barbeque to an elegantly served multi-course dinner, we pride ourselves on delicious cuisine at an affordable price.

Fall is a great time for a trip through our own haunted house – the Massacre Mansion.  It’s great fun for birthdays or costume parties, and is enjoyed by kids young and old at Family Reunions!

Our Phoenix Pub is the spot for great live music, dancing, and general good times. Located downstairs from our dining room, it’s a perfect place for a stag or bachelorette party, or just to enjoy a little adult-time.
