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!

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+.
