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!

Couldn't have been better!
  • 5 of 5
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!

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

BEAUTIFUL RUSTIC HOME WITH STELLAR VIEWS

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely house with great "bones". The design and layout is ideal for a couple or a small family, views are wonderful! Having a fireplace in the winter is also ideal and adds a really cozy touch. We really enjoyed our time here. If you are into cooking while on vacation, be aware that supplies in the kitchen are somewhat limited. While Donna certainly makes a great effort, the house is not professionally cleaned. We had a hard time hearing back about getting our security deposit on the house. These elements were minor but left us uneasy with the owner. All in all, the actual house is wonderful! I am sure anyone would have a lovely experience here.

ROMANTIC AND CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I stayed here for one weekend in January and it was truly a treat. As others have attested, this is the perfect house for a couple. A beautiful house surrounded by trees that gave it a nice private feel. Unfortunately our timing being in the winter didn't allow us to take advantage of the deck but it definitely is one of the highlights of the house. Having the close access to the lake was another.

The inside of the house is very cozy and the two way fireplace was awesome. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessary supplies that allowed us to stay in and cook for the night.

The house had such a great feel and we would never hesistate to come back again.
