About Mariano Vega, Jr.

I am a City guy, born in the rainforest of Puerto Rico and I enjoy the outdoors. Weeping Willow provided an opportunity to restore a Queen Anne Victorian to modern standards, while addressing the Secretary of Interior Historic Preservation guidelines and creating a wonderful vacation home for my family and my grandkids.

Mariano Vega, Jr. purchased this house in 2005

Why Mariano Vega, Jr. chose Fleischmanns

I have been skiing the Catskills Mountains for over 50 years and after my daughter graduated from college, we finally purchased a vacation home for our family use, in anticipation of our grandchildren. Weeping Willow is a very large historic Queen Anne Victorian which has been meticulously restored and designed for comfort and modern conveniences. It is well suited for family reunions, large group gatherings corporate retreats and weddings.

What makes this house unique

As a former Bed and Breakfast, Weeping Willow is very large and ideal large families and for multiple family gatherings, reunion, weddings with the modern comforts in a getaway setting. The side yard is large for weddings, reunion and for the kids to play and directly across the street is the Village Park and down the street is the Village pool. The Village Park has great tennis courts, soccer fields, children's playground and a community garden.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Eleven of us had a great time here learning about this God who loves. This God who can relate to the unfairness of the world because he died unfairly, and a God who doesn't care about what we deserve, because we don't get what we deserve, we get grace, forgiveness and love.

It has been a great house with weekend hike on the Haines Trail, BBQ and fellowship.

Another nice stay at the Weeping Willow.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying at the Weeping Willow. It has plenty of room and beds to fit a large informal group of friends. We recommend this as a fun place to stay, typical of the style of the Catskill recreational area. I hope others are inspired by the Vega's example to fix up more of the grand old homes in Fleishmanns and surrounding villages. Thank you Mariano!

Me and my group spent awesome time here. Also the neighborhood is safe and quiet! Also the ski mountain is near by, so it would not take a long time to get there. Definitely recommend here!!

Exceptionally large property with tons of space for families and children. Central located in Fleischmann's with a nice park right across the street. Good common spaces for large families, and a large functional kitchen with excellent wares. Had a great time, thank you!

Weeping Willow Outing

  • 3 of 5

Our short three days rental staying at the Weeping Willow home were barely acceptable. The home is nicely kept from the original style, we expect the interior finish can be more modernized for the cost of rental we booked.

There are good and bad experiences we had staying at Weeping Willow. The internet was the major issue for us since phone service was not usable and we are depends on the internet service, password provided was not working, no service from the beginning, we end up contact Verizon ourselves to get it straight up. Laundry room downstairs, piles of dirty sheets and towels on the top of machine, its impossible for us to use the washer or dryer. The other side of basement is under construction, area is bare with grovel, bricks etc, all unprotected.

Two gas grills in the back yard, both tanks provided were almost depleted, we barely make it for one meal, though the owner is did offer us to buy locally and promise to reimburse, we give up after tanks were emptied, it too inconvenience for us. There are so many unnecessary antique furniture in the house, especially the room I was staying at, has two large dressers, a baby crib, and a full size bed in less than 10x10 room makes impossible to move around. All shades are rather too shady, a suggestion for the owner maybe change it to white sheer curtain, it would be nice to bring in some of the natural light. All rooms are rather very depressing to stay in.

The kitchen is nicely renovated, modern as we expected, the attic has 5 twin beds and extra space for sleeping bags, our kids were all happy play and sleep all on the same floor. Access to the attic can be very tricky, watch out for the head injury. Living room area has entertainment system are nicely set up. There is a large open grass field directly across from the home, and tennis court were great feature for our staying. Too bad there isn't a basketball court. The community swimming pool were under construction during our stay, its a con as well.

Overall, very friendly home owner, but hard to reach since this place is too remotely. Home is rather old fashion, look and smell old, definitely need update, rooms are crowd because of the extra furniture, great location for outdoor fun, definitely kids friendly.

Owner's Response: Weeping Williw is a Historic Queen Anne Victorian, circa 1899 well represented by all the pictures and video available on the website. There is major restoration going on in the subbasement, which is off limits to the guest. The other three floors are filled with period antiques that reflect the era of the home. All windows have elegent curtains with block out shades to make the viewing of the HDTV easier. As a large home, we provide a crib for parents with young children and the attic was designed for children to enjoy. The kitchen is a high end Professional Viking kitchen for the chef within us. The wifi in the Catskill Mountains is a slow DSL, with patience the system works and cell phone service works best if one uses Verizon. VIEW THE VIDEO of the inside of the house, it truly reflects the historic nature Eastlake period.

Cozy, clean, ample space at a great price

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, very much enjoyed our recent stay at Weeping Willow. It was like we had all the amenities that we enjoy back home, from books, to board games, cards, TV... with plenty of comfort and hospitality. The location is also great because it's so close to Belleayre Ski Center and other area attractions.

Our Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Weeping Willow for a second time for our yearly Belleayre Ski trip. There is plenty of room to spread out for many families to share. We have several teen boys and the attic space is perfect for them. The house is a good value and has all the pots, pans etc that you need to cook all meals in house. This is convenient as there are no restaurants within winter walking distance or that can properly accommodate a large crowd. This is fine for us because we would all rather pitch in and cook together and have a good drink and not have to drive anywhere after skiing. It is so much better to just hang out with good friends and good wine! We were also able to bring our dogs and that was a nice plus. The Owner is very easy to get in touch with and we plan to rent it again next year.
