Great home for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice rental home in a great secluded spot on the lake. The backyard goes straight down to the lake for a perfect landing to push off the kayaks. The water is definitely too shallow to swim there, which wasn't a problem for us. The house itself was very roomy and comfortable and well taken care of. The homeowner Aldo is very responsive if you need anything as well. I would definitely look to rent this home the next time I take a trip to Sleepy Hollow Lake.

Perfect setting

Could not have been better. Lake right out the back door, use of canoe and kayaks. Pool close by. Perfect family vacation. Memories to last a lifetime.

Rustic, great location, good access to amenities

  • 3 of 5

It has been a pleasure dealing with Aldo. He really cares about his guests and made sure to call us before going.

Cell reception there is spotty but the wifi is good.

We went Memorial weekend and since we arrived Thursday evening were a little disappointed that the beach was not open until the following day, however we were able to get out in the kayaks and have some fun. Grilling was easy and we were able to make use of the fire pit also.

Would be helpful if there was a list of places to buy groceries etc kept in the house.

Awesome house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 people who rented this house during the 2015 Christmas weekend. We had a very great time. The house is well furnished, cozy and confortable. The view on the Sleepy Hollow Lake is just amazing. The neighborhood is very quiet.

The location is 30min away from the Catskill forest and mountains where you can hike.

Furniture and equipment (shower, heater, kitchen, tv, wifi) worked well.

Because it was winter and a bit cold outside, we did not use the kayaks and canoes but it is a must-do if you want to discover this beautiful lake while rowing.

In addition, the owner was very responsive and helpful, and was kind enough to tell us about places to visit around, restaurants, and grocery stores…

I highly recommend this place. Perfect for either families or group of friends.

Serene and spacious

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property with some friends to celebrate the new year and now we're already planning on when we can rent the property again this summer!

The house has plenty of room so you'll never feel like you're on top of one another. Though we did not get to really enjoy the outdoor amenities that the house provides, we did relax around the fire pit on New Year's Eve and totally saw the potential for a summer barbecue on the patio and deck.

There are two sitting areas, one with a TV and one perfect to sit around having a few drinks and chatting with your loved ones. Both have gas fireplaces and are very comfortable.

Additionally, the owners Aldo and Susan were very responsive to any questions we had. Overall, we're very happy with the choice we made to rent this property and would recommend it to all of our friends.

Great house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a weekend getaway in order to view the Fall foliage. The house is located in beautiful location with canoes and kayaks to play with. Extra roomie and with a downstairs that the kids claimed as their own. I only wished I could advantage of all the amenities (way too short of a weekend) such as the fire pit. Aldo was super responsive and really great to rent from. Great house for a great location and easy weekend.
