A little something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Good sized home for 8-10, stocked, not brand new but clean, indoor games- air hockey and shuffleboard, and many outdoor activities (fire pit, kayaks, sup board, pedal boat) lovely setting on a nice lake. Thomas was extremely responsive - very easy to work with. This was an easy long weekend getaway for our family!

Great home, all amenities, friendly community

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the home, Tom, answered all the questions I had and has a truly warm home. This log house comes with full amentities and made our family feel like it was our own. We sang songs by the fire pit outside, gathered at the dinner table for almost every meal, went fishing and kayaked on the lake, enjoyed the pool at the community lodge, relaxed on the comfortable sofas, and watched some films from his collection. Would love to come back again! Thank you Tom!

  • 5 of 5

Cant express how perfect the house is, the porch to chill, fire pit, game room, and a short walk to the dock. We fished, kayaked, and had a fire at night. Great experience.

We spent a great weekend in this beautiful, spacious and clean house.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful house for 3 nights this weekend. The house was very clean, spacious and has everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. Everything in the description is accurate. We spent unfogettable time around the fireplace . We also enjoyed the lake and the leaves falling. I would recommend this house to everyone.

Perfect, Relaxing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying in this house and will still say it was an amazing experience. The house is spotless when you arrive, Thomas is great to communicate with and it the perfect relaxing weekend. We had no issues, the home provides everything you need and although it was chilly my friends were still able to go out on the lake. I will definitely be staying here again soon!

Nice house that needs a more accurate listing!

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice family vacation at this lake house on Sleepy Hollow Lake enjoying lots of fishing and swimming from the dock, kayaking and canoeing, campfires in the firepit and using the community beach and pool. Tom was a very responsive owner and the house was clean and well equipped. Some of the outdoor amenities have been well loved and ought to be repaired or replaced or removed from the listing.

Although the house is lakefront be aware that you cannot see the lake from the house in the summer - a disappointment for us - and that there is a steep path down to the dock which might be difficult for some guests.

My one main gripe is with the confusion caused by the pictures of the bedrooms and the descriptions of the bedrooms in the listing. The house does have 5 bedrooms and comfortably sleeps ten. There is a large, lovely bedroom and bath with shower on the top floor - pictured with the label bedroom 5. There is another good sized bedroom on the main level off the kitchen - pictured with the label bedroom 4. There are two small bedrooms with a set of twin beds in each room in the basement level - pictured with the labels bedroom 1 and 2. Then there is the mysterious picture labeled bedroom 3 - that room did not seem to exist. There is a small bedroom in the basement across from the two twin rooms that has a double bed and a single small, high window - nothing like what is pictured as bedroom 3. I understand that lake house living in the summer is diifferent and more casual but the pictures should not be misleading. It would be helpful if the descriptions in the listing made sense as far as the number/type of beds in each room and what level they are on and if the bedroom numbers in the listing corresponded to the numbers in the photos.

If you polled the individual family members each one would say that we had a great few days but all also agree that the listing should be cleaned up.
