Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Fleischmanns - Halcott House

4 BR/2 BA Sleeps 8-10 people( two Kings, two queens, one double,one twin)

Our 2 story A frame plus addition home was built in 1967 and renovated in 2006 but it stills has some of its 1960’s grooviness(Is that a word). The property is perched on a hilltop with 180 degree views of the meadows &, meandering brook below and the nearby hills that escalate into the sweeping Catskill mountains.160 acres of land previously part of the compound but now donated as forever wild, you won’t want to leave the grounds and your well behaved pet certainly won’t. Fully-equipped open kitchen with dining area(seats 8),pool table, 2Bose Ipod stereos, jacuzzi,50'Plasma, etc.etc

Onsite you will enjoy the expansive deck with its 6 person built in Jacuzzi hot tub and a nearly new oversized Weber gas grill. An outside dining table carved out of bluestone as well as swinging couches, rocking chairs and Adirondack chairs with foot rests complete the picture. We also have a toddler swing in a nearby tree as well as a relaxing hammock

About Todd Nation

I love to travel and spending time with my family. Thats my son in the cage. He wanted to be there:)

Todd Nation purchased this house in 2005

Why Todd Nation chose Catskills

I fell in love with the area while visiting my friend who owns the adjoining 300 acre property. One time up here and I was hooked. It has been a weekend retreat from NYC for me and now my family and since we travel for most of the year it is now a retreat for everyone. Enjoy the water, air and nature for me when I cant.


What makes this house unique

Few places can you drink the water and have it compare to bottled water. Our water is bottled and shipped state wide , its that good!

Awesome , awesome, awesome. This home and the area were more than a welcome change from my time spent studying in NYC. The Fall time was breathtaking and the stars and sky where better than the Outback. We saw shooting stars and meteor showers while sitting in the jacuzzi with the mountains illuminated in the background. The home was so much nicer than in the pictures and the bedding was incredibly comfortable with down pillows and comforters in every room. The home has a very uplifting zen-like appeal that made our group be able to kick back and relax immediately. The owner was very helpful in giving us suggestions on where to eat and where to get fresh seafood. The Peekamoose was our favorite restaurant suggestion and the Main Black bear does have the freshest seafood -who knew the Catskills would have that. I had such a wonderful time in 08 that I have booked two more weeks this year one for Spring and one for the Summer too. I hope to keep my old memories and form new ones . I can't wait!

Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Renting to and from strangers is a two way street and we hope that our home gets the same treatment as our guests. You never know what a positive experience may bring. Many of the relationships we have formed from renting has blossomed into more than just a weekend stay at our place. The Sheila from down under went on to rent one of my apartments in NYC for an entire year and we knew from our previous experiences she would be a great renter. Thank you for your kind words

Incredible Cabin Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were fortunate to stay at Todd's cabin to celebrate my birthday. His home is beyond amazing and the pictures posted on this site do not do justice to his property or cabin. The views are breathtaking and his home was cozy and welcoming. The property was clean and well-maintained so we felt extremely comfortable quickly settling in. Also the amenities are just what we needed: the grill, hot tub, washer/dryer...and to our surprise there was a fire pit!!!

I also want to thank Todd for his clear instructions and for listing nearby groceries, attractions, etc. It was all very helpful!

We would all definitely come back to Todd's cabin...as long as he'll have us! =P

Highly recommend booking with Todd and his cabin! You wont regret it! THANKS AGAIN TODD!

Owner's Response: Wow, Thank you so much for your beautiful words! I emailed your review to my mom , who this Summer was on her hands and knees helping me to pull out carpet and move furniture. In fact much of my household worked tirelessly to update the house. New window treatments , new hard wood floors , new appliances, outdoor decks sanded and stained , fresh paint and fastidious cleaning were all worth it thanks to your review and others like it. Thank you very much. Much appreciated. Todd

Fun weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time away from it all. The house is exactly as promised, and the owner was very helpful throughout the booking process. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and would return in the future. Only regret was not making use of the pool table, but it was too nice to stay indoors! A fun nearby activity was tubing in Phoenicia, a short drive away. All around great spot.

Wonderfull stay in this cosy house!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (10 people total) spent the weekend in this lovely house and had a great time. It is very cosy & we spent a good amount of time on the amazingly comfortable sofas, in front of the fireplace, enjoying the light coming through the windows.

The view is very nice, especially in this season and being on the deck in the jacuzzi is a very nice.

The kitchen is well equipped, as well as the bathrooms and the bedrooms. All was perfectly clean when we arrived.

The instructions provided to reach the house were very clear and the owner also added some nice 'to-do' in the region.

Leaving on the sunday, we were already thinking about the next time we will be able to stay in this house. We recommend it 100% not only to groups of friends like ours but also to any family that wishes to visit the region while having a nice and cosy time.

So it is very true, the weekend felt like a holiday in this vacation house !!

Moms Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This past June our boys graduated high school. Time to celebrate! What better way then a weekend away (just the mom's) in the beautiful Catskills! We searched and found the perfect house! This place had everything we needed for our celebration. We sat on the porch at night, breathing fresh fall air and marveled at hundreds of sparkling stars. We walked for miles up country roads, never seeing a car and thought of a time when life was so much simpler. We spent the night around an amazing fireplace, drinking wine and sharing stories of our boys and their high school antics. We hooked up an Ipod and danced the night away!! Thank you Todd, your home was everything you promised. You are a fantastic host and after all of our endless questions, your patience and helpfulness was greatly appreciated. Great tip to shop for groceries before we arrived. You really are in Gods Country! The "mom's" give it 5 thumbs up!! This is a great place for friends or families!!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

This A-frame was the perfect home base for a weekend of hiking, swimming, grillin' & chillin'. The place was clean, comfortable, and has character to boot. Recommended.
