ROMANTIC RETREAT OVERLOOKING LAKE A PLACE IN THE TREES

Athens - Sleepy Hollow Lake House Rental Photos and Description

1 bdrm plus sleeping loft, sleeps 5, 1 bath

Surrounded by trees, lake and nature, all comforts and amenities are extended to visitors here. This is a private and safe setting. Heated and air-conditioned, there is a fireplace in the living room and bedroom. A large oval deck leads from the living room and looks out onto the water as does the bedroom's balcony. A row boat sits at the water's edge. This three level house has an all wood interior with wide pine plank floors throughout and vaulted ceilings. A sleeping loft acts as a second bedroom with window and skylight. The bathroom's sloped ceiling also includes a skylight over a claw-footed tub sunk in Mexican paving tiles. Original art and objects along with some turn of the century antiques add to the warmth and charm of this very original and unique home on the lake. Internet access and HD TV available. Beautiful in all seasons.

Through renting my house and having been introduced to the beauty of this lake and the many things it has to offer, there are now several additional property owners with homes of their own in Sleepy Hollow Lake.

While definitely away in the country, every convenience is nearby. It's a lovely, still fairly secret and uncomercial spot, nestled in the foothills of the Catskills.

Couldn't have been better!

We had such an amazing stay at this serene, beautiful house. The photos just don't fully capture it... it is so much better in person! I found it to be open, airy, clean, extremely well-designed, and decorated with a sensitive, artistic touch. My husband, one-year old daughter, our black lab and I swam in the lake together every day of our stay, plus we had a lovely day of shopping in Hudson. Donna, the owner, was extremely responsive, kind and informative.
We fell in love with the place... hope to return very soon!

Fabulous private retreat

  • 5 of 5
Upon pulling into the driveway of this home I fell in love. The house sits on a quiet lot that overlooks Sleepy Hollow Lake. Our favorite spot for the week was the shaded deck and the view of the lake. I would highly recommend this home for a romantic getaway or a quiet destination spot. My girls loved riding their bikes to the pool and the sandy beach that the community offers to residents and their guests. I would also like to thank Donna for renting her beautifully decorated home and sharing information with me about the area. We had a great time and did not want to leave. I would love to return someday!

Great Getaway on Sleep Hollow Lake

  • 5 of 5
First of all, Donna is very responsive and provides a lot of great information ahead of the trip.
The property feels like in the middle of the forrest. It is secluded and can be hard to find as you need to follow a hidden driveway through the trees.
I would recommend the house mainly for couples traveling to spend a romantic few days in a lake house. It is clean, offers all kitchen equipment for dining at home and has a fantastic outdoor deck.
The location is very convenient in terms of restaurants (Hudson, Athens) or hiking in the Catskills.
There is a rowboat right at the property that we used a couple of times on the lake.
All in all, a great experience and we recommend it very highly.

Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here over Valentine's Day weekend and had a wonderful time. Donna was so easy to contact and had everything there for us. She gave great suggestions on restaurants, antique shops, and more! We had a very memorable time in the quaint town and in her charming home. Thank you, Donna! We have already recommended your lovely home to several friends. Take care!

Fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely retreat for anyone looking for some quality rest and relaxation. With views of the lake and the Catskills out in the distance, you quickly realize that you are immersed in the land that was once made famous by the Hudson River School of artists. If you happen to be from NYC, the next time you feel that frenetic pace of the city starting to make you feel like a crazy person, I highly suggest heading up to this little gem of a home a few hours north. Bring a nice bottle of wine, cook dinner, build a fire, and listen to the (very friendly) owner's great collection of opera and classical music. I can assure you that this place is so quiet that you will sleep like Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle did set in this area at the foot of the beautiful Catskills.

Wonderful Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came here looking for a quiet weekend get away and got just that! It was peaceful, quiet,and very relaxing. Donna was so easy to work with and just truly a wonderful person. She has a remarkable yet quaint home, lovingly adorned with antiques and memorabilia. She was so easy to contact, and gave us great directions, suggestions on restaurants, and places to visit. .... Our only issue during our stay was that that we both have severe allergies, so we sniffled and sneezed a good bit due to some dust, dog hair, and other allergens but it did not rob our stay of joy and contentment. (We have to deal with that wherever we go!) ... So, thank you Donna. This was a much needed get away and your home is truly a remarkable place! We have already recommended this place to several friends. All the best, Julia and Rich
