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!

Perfect great house plenty of room for the six of us.

  • 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.

We stayed two nights in this beautiful home and had an excellent time with two adults, four 17-year olds, and our mini Goldendoodle! The house is adorable, spacious, and immaculate, and has virtually everything you need for your stay, including clean linens and plenty of towels. We spent a day swimming in and kayaking on the gorgeous lake, which is down a short path through the woods. The sun hits the dock for a few hours in the morning, but otherwise is shaded. That was no problem, though, as we sunned on the side lawn and deck of the house in the afternoon and then ambled down to the lake to cool off. The house has A/C and ceiling fans throughout, but the nights were cool and wonderful for sleeping regardless. We grilled on the deck and made s'mores around the firepit. The kids all slept downstairs where there are numerous beds, air hockey and shuffleboard tables, and a TV; there is a bedroom with bath on the main floor, but we opted to stay in the upstairs loft bedroom with bath, which put a nice noise buffer between us and the kids who stayed up later than we did. The wifi is strong throughout the house, but the modem must be slow because we had somewhat spotty Internet connectivity during our stay, but even that was a good excuse to disconnect and unwind. Tom was a real pleasure to deal with and provided helpful information about the house and area prior to our arrival. We would definitely return for a longer stay next time we have the opportunity!
