About Nancy

Hi,I am John English.I would like to share a memory with you.I remember as a child vacationing with my family at my Uncles home in Lake Winnipesaukee, NH. Those weeks spent in an extended family environment were such a special time with the best of memories! With those memories in mind I embarked upon building a home that would allow me to duplicate the type of atmosphere I grew up with.We constructed and developed the site for multiple families to share and enjoy. Areas large enough to enjoy together ,and yet with ample space to retreat to and enjoy private quieter times.

My kids,who are now 33-21 all remember their childhood vacations there in the same way I did.As young adults they are continuing that tradition as well, living with close family friends,relatives and grandparents(me!!)

Nancy purchased this house in 1984

Why Nancy chose Athens - Sleepy Hollow Lake

I was lucky enough to find the property our home is built on, 2.5 acres of undeveloped pristine waterfront at great value.The house and beach are positioned to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.Our home is located on a peninsula with a 180 degree vista of water. 800' of shoreline to sun yourself as if you were in Bermuda or shade yourself under the majestic trees of a New England Forest.

What makes this house unique

The time spent here can not be duplicated on a family afternoon visit,which is what most of us are restricted to.We have decided to make our home available for other families and close friends to have the special times we have been blessed with all our lives.

Our home is not a business it is our own special personal space and we hope that you feel the warm peacefulness and family reflecting time there that we have.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was perfect for our family(up to 18 members,all ages) Everything was included that we needed (or wanted!)and in perfect condition.Swimming in front of house was very nice,tennis courts nearby an added attraction,and canoe in constant use,as were fishing equipment( a nice touch)

I would recommend this place to anyone looking for all the comforts of home,together with the luxury of lovely vacation surroundings.Thank you!!

The properly is lovely. The house has plenty of space, really convenient, and very well organized. The owner is a very nice person ready to offer her help. We had a great experience.

Photos don’t do this house justice!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family group (three generations, 13 people age 10-80s) couldn’t stop ooh-ing and aah-ing. There was plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable, from the basement bunkroom to the six main-floor bedrooms and multiple gathering spaces indoors and out. The ranch-style layout allowed the older folks to enjoy the house completely—a major plus for our family. And five full baths meant there was never a wait.

We took full advantage of Sleepy Hollow Lake and the house’s private, well-kept gravel beach. A tree-covered, grassy slope runs down to the lake, with a well-lit wooden pathway as well as a discreet driveway you can use to get to the water. We had four kayaks, a canoe, and plenty of inflatables and pool noodles at our disposal.

With weather on the cool side, some of us took a few day trips, including hikes in the Catskills, an architecture tour of Athens, a hang-out in funky Hudson across the river, and a browse through the storied Rodgers Book Barn (a must for used-book lovers). But other family members were happy just reading, playing games, shooting pool, and spending time together in our beautiful temporary home.

Nancy did take great care to make sure we’d feel at home. Everything we needed – right down to the bath and beach towels – was there for us. She was a terrific host, never intrusive but always available when we had a question or needed help. For example, when we experienced a brief power outage one night, Nancy talked us calmly through the process of finding candles and flashlights, even though she had lost power too.

It was so difficult to tear ourselves away, we’re already comparing calendars in hopes of returning next year!

Oh. My. Goodness! WOW!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! What a wonderful owner!

My husband and I gave this week to our children and grandchildren as a Christmas present, and it was worth every penny. Nancy was welcoming, kind, considerate, and so nice about EVERYTHING! I especially enjoyed all the different places to sit outside, and the several gathering places inside. The 12 of us had a wonderful time at this superb property and recommend it without hesitation.

We have stayed at several HomeAway homes and although we have not been disappointed yet, this experience is at the top of our list. I give it an A+.

Fabulous vacation get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property as a family with my in-laws: 6 adults, 6 children, ages 15 to almost 9 years old. The property is gorgeous, very large, and the beachfront area is wonderful to either swim or use the kayaks/canoe. Our dogs absolutely loved romping on the property & swimming in the lake.

The inside of the house was large enough to easily accommodate our group, with people able to tuck into cozy corners to read...or work on a puzzle, or hang out with each other. We did not have to use the bunk beds in the basement, but there would have been room for 8 additional people!

A welcome surprise was the hot tub, which we were not aware of ahead of time, but Nancy graciously allowed us to use.

The absolutely amazing part is that we were not asked to clean the house upon departure. We did straighten up and finish dishes, etc., but to not have to clean 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, & living space was wonderful!

The only "down" part was that blue-green algae was found in the water at the end of the week, making it necessary to avoid swimming for us and our dogs. However, we appreciated that the "water patrol" let us know, and Nancy quickly contacted us to make us aware as well.

We did buy measuring cups and spoons and steak knives to leave at the house, as they were not there, and we did need these items for cooking/eating. However, that was a minimal price to pay for what we paid for the wonderful, relaxing vacation.

We have rented from other homeowners previously, but this was BY FAR the best experience! Nancy, thank you so very much for providing a wonderful home to share!

AWESOME WOW-HOME WITH A LAKE

  • 5 of 5

The place was awesome. All together 5 families-(3 families with 2 kids and 2 familIES with 1 kid) total 18. The house was definitely big didn’t expect to have that much room. What is great about this place that you have your own private beach in the back yard-kids loved playing in the water also they have a Swing set on the property-really you dont have to leave the place at all. Just unpack swim and relax. Nancy was great with asnwering our questions fast.- We are planning coming back next year- happy with the house-owner had pretty much everything there for you-the views from the lake are magical. Remember you are Upstate NY near Catskill- its very relaxing and quite-its not the City and make the best of it!!! The House is also Pet Friendly upon request!

Hope to see you next Year! Thank you for sharing your Lovely house with us!!! We happy that we made memories here Sleepy Hollow Lake-Nancy you Rock

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located on a private peninsula. The property was magnificent and well maintained. Lots of room both in and outside. The game room was fun and the extra frig was a plus. The kids had a blast kayaking and fishing. My youngest caught the biggest large mouth bass of his life. Nancy was very welcoming and accommodating. What a great place for a relaxing vacation. Thanks for your hospitality, it was awesome!
