Here is your chance to soak in the beautiful outdoors for 5 nights in Belleayre View Fleishmanns, NY. Belleayre View is a magnificent, year-round retreat in the Catskills Mountains perfectly situated and outfitted for both summer and winter escapes. Located on six acres overlooking Belleayre Mountain and its ski slopes, this tastefully furnished, three-bedroom, three-bath log home has a beautiful mountain setting with spectacular panoramic views from the wrap-around deck.

In the winter, you’ll find handy access to skiing and myriad other activities at Belleayre (just 5 minutes away!) and Plattekill (15 minutes). Nothing is better after a long day on the slopes than coming back to the cabin to relax in the hot tub or tell stories around the fire pit. In the summer enjoy miles of hiking trails, hunting, fishing, and golf. The reservoir and rivers feature water sports such as canoeing, kayaking, river tubing / rafting and fly fishing.
