Why Colin Young & Niki Naeve chose Fleischmanns
We spent several years vacationing in the area - skiing in the winter, and camping in the summer, before we decided to look around for a more permanent spot. We love our sleepy little village of Fleischmanns. It's a great escape from the big city, and nearby to great skiing, hiking, and lots of other great outdoor activities.
What makes this House unique
We keep the house hypoallergenic for our guests (no smoking or pets), and we've got some great beds (3 of our beds are memory foam!)

Beautiful property just as described
We had a great family vacation at this rental! The property was easy to enter, as per the instructions we were sent.The house was as described - no surprises. Beds were comfortable, the house was family friendly and comfortable and right by the Belleayre Beach which we really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this house and will definitely return.
A lovely week in the Catskills.
What a gem of a house to have as a base for exploring the Catskills. We checked out charming Fleischmanns and then explored Big Pond, Little Pond, streams and waterfalls throughout the area. So nice to come back to a charming, neat and tidy house each evening. The front deck, the swing, the fireplace, the washer and dryer, we used them all. We even cooked out on the grill.Our little girl loved the swing. What fun!
Stayed here with friends for a wedding weekend and had everything we needed! The owners were incredibly helpful answering our questions leading up to our stay and even emailed to check in on us! We highly recommend this house!
We enjoyed our stay at the Catskills house it was very cozy and we loved the fire place. Colin and Nikki were always very responsive when I emailed them and even let us arrive earlier than our check in time. All the notes around the house with the instructions were very helpful. We just wished the house was a little cleaner we feel that being charged for a house cleaner after every visit that the house should be a little cleaner. You can tell It was just kind of spot cleaned and done pretty quickly. Also we came in a snow storm and the driveway and steps were never plowed or shoveled. We had to do it every time it snowed during our stay which paying so much to stay you would think that it would be done for you. Overall though we did enjoy our stay
Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review, and we're glad you enjoyed your experience in our cozy home.
We apologize that the house was not as clean as it should have been. It's possible the snowstorm you mentioned impacted both cleaning and plowing. Our cleaner was rushed due to road conditions in the days prior. We want any renters to know if they ever find cleaning to be an issue, they should contact us right away and we will get the cleaner back in to touch up anything that's not acceptable.
We have a service to plow and shovel, so that should be done for our guests. We know that sometimes he drives by if the driveway is full with cars, so what may have happened is that with the early check-in, there were cars there earlier than expected, and the snow storm kept him busy in the following hours and days. If guests ever find themselves without sufficient snow removal, they should contact us right away and we'll coordinate you with our service to get him there when the driveway is empty.
Thanks again much for your feedback, it is much appreciated.

Following up - a couple weeks later, we're in the house now and we actually agree. A combination of heavy usage over an unusually busy ski season, paint which needed re-touching and sealant which needed replacing gave some areas of the house a bit of a case of the "Catskill Dingys."
We're up here now, doing a *deep* clean, getting in the nooks and crannies, re-touching paint, re-sealing and, in a few weeks, replacing the kitchen floor entirely. Thanks for bringing this to our attention; we are addressing it.

We stayed over New Years Weekend and went skiing at Belleayre. Belleayre was great we went later on in the morning and the mountain was no where near full capacity. The house instructions were very clear and precise, and strategically placed in the house as well as the detailed email we received from the owners. We thought because there is electric heat it may be cold and brought extra blankets, but with the fire place burning there was no need for the extra blankets. There is stock piles of wood available. I'd recommend slippers. The house had everything we needed. I think the king and twin mattresses were some kind of Tempurpedic. The twins a little firmer. Food wise there were all the small things available like salt, pepper, butter, mayo, ketchup, etc. and all kinds of pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster. We ate at a Mexican place that was about a half mile around the block from the house, it was decent. Goatee Whites was up the block as well and great! Their home description is exactly what you get, although I felt unprepared for the steps. Great first time experience using HomeAway.
Great stay over Labor Day!
We had a fantastic stay over Labor Day weekend. The house had everything that we needed and more. We do a lot of our cooking and all of the kitchen utensils were available; tons of towels both for use in the house and for swimming at the pool or lake. Super comfortable beds and very pretty rooms with the owner's own photography decorating the walls. High speed Internet, Netflix, board games and more. Excellent lay out in the house for a family with kids or several couples. Lots of space outdoors both on the deck in front of the house and the backyard. Swing and hammock in the backyard kept kids happy while being visible from the kitchen. Thank you
