About Michael

Mike Gallagher, owner since 2004. My wife and I have three boys and we only rent our house for 2-3 weeks per summer. Never in the winter.

Michael purchased this house in 2004

Why Michael chose New York

This property has a beautiful trex (synthetic wood) on a quiet WIDE part of the lake. This is very important. You do not want to be swimming and fishing on the main part of the lake due to boaters. You also do not want be on one of the narrow fingers of the lake because it diminishes the lake view and tends to be more shady and less inviting for swimming.

What makes this house unique

We have a prime location on the lake with 1/2 acre manicured backyard (no trees) with an unobstructed view of the lake. We do have a shaded porch facing the lake. Perfect spot when the sun is too hot.. We use the deck and dock on the lake for early morning coffee and pre-dinner cocktails.

Perfect sized home for up to 2 families. Clean and updated. Beautiful complex. We enjoyed swimming and fishing from the backyard. Swimming in the complex pool. Going to the drive-in close by. We would return again!

Beautiful house with a beautiful view of the lake. The living room kitchen area with the French doors overlooking the lake is just absolutely stunning. So quiet and peaceful at the dock. We had a great time. Thank you Michael for letting us use your home.

Sleepy Hollow Lake Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! My children 9, 7 and 4 swam in the lake everyday. They loved ziplining at nearby Catamount Mountain - we went twice! The paddle boat was a huge hit too. The scenery is wonderful. It was a very relaxing vacation, a great place to spend some quality family time.

The house is very clean and well- appointed.
