The best way to describe the Hamlet of halcottsville is walking on the back lot of MGM Studios In the heart of the Catskills . The porch is a compound with an old general store built in 1890 . We also have a beautiful restored barn , gardens , Apple orchard and a beautiful Bungalow right on Main Street in halcottsville. We will definitely share our vegetables and fruit with you .
