Massacre Mansion: Fwoosh!

More About Massacre Mansion, The Blackthorne Independent Haunt

Yes, the Halloween Market’s home, Blackthorne Resort, features its very own, independent Haunted House! It’s one of the best-loved indie haunts of the Catskill region, and one of the most fun.

Right in the heart of the Resort, it’s less than a minute from the Pub and main building. It’s also within an easy walk of the cabins and vending areas and close to where we often have some of peoples’ favorite food trucks. It’s Massacre Mansion, and you’re going to love to let it frighten you!

Fey In The Forest Homestead And Crafts

Fey in the Forests Homestead
My name is Meghann and I started this journey in 2020 partially on a whim and with the flightiness of the fey. My family journeyed from the sweltering heat of Tampa, FL to the cool forests of Upstate NY and we almost didn’t leave. We didn’t eat the food of the fey realm, but the attraction was keen. We returned home and immediately sold our house in suburbia and started a homestead where you will find chaos and beauty at every turn (mostly chaos).

I was hungry and went out for a bite, ran into a chum with a bottle of rum and we wound up drinking all night.
