Athens Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10-12

This newer log home sits on nearly an acre of property on Sleepy Hollow Lake and is one of the most private homes on the lake. Situated on a wooded peninsula with a private dock, this home sleeps 10 comfortably but has room for more!

An upscale kitchen with subzero refrigerator and granite counter tops opens into a a vaulted family room with a large fireplace. Two bedrooms and one bath are situated on the main floor with a large master bedroom off of the loft on the second floor. The covered porch is perfect for having a drink or waiting out a summer shower.

If swimming off of the dock or private beach isn't for you, go to one of the two community pools nearby. One a short walk from the cabin! Or choose from basketball, tennis, or other activities within the sleepy hollow lake community!

Why Chris Morgan chose New York

Sleepy Hollow is a great, friendly community. We loved the privacy that this location provided to us, while giving us all of the amenities!

What makes this cabin unique

This beautiful lot is unique to Sleepy Hollow Lake, with its large, mature trees and distance from other homes on the lake. A rare find!

nice property on scenic lake

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house with everything as expected. We had two families with several young children. We had plenty of space and they loved fishing off the dock and swimming in the lake. Big kitchen made it easy to prep meals for everyone. Thanks for a fun stay!

Excellent Stay in an Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

Chris really does have an amazing house. This cabin is in a Lake Community but feels completely secluded. The kitchen/living room is such an amazing space with huge windows over looking the lake. There is plenty of deck space to really spread out and hang out with your friends and family. The basement is currently under construction but there's enough room on the 1st and 2nd floor for plenty of people. We fit 10 comfortably. He provides 4 kayaks and 2 canoes for your water enjoyment. We really enjoyed our stay. There's a golf course within 15 minutes and a grocery store 15 minutes away with everything you'll need. Additionally, you're about 35-40min from Windham for some great hiking at the start of the Escarpement!

All around a great stay.

Such a happy, fun, relaxing place!

  • 5 of 5

My family was delighted with our stay at Chris's beautiful cabin on Sleepy Hollow Lake. It was just as the pictures indicated, with the warm, welcoming interior and pretty views from the porch. My family of 7 adults was able to spread out comfortably for sleeping, and by day, we could play games at the table, do a jigsaw, cook, and watch TV all nearby each other. We ate dinner out on the porch when the evenings were fine, and turned on the air conditioning for the evening that was muggy. The canoes and kayaks were fun to use. We paddled north, upstream, under the bridge and back for a two-hour adventure. We also took a hike to Kaaterskill Falls which is a half hour drive away and very pretty, though busy on a Saturday. The one drawback of our stay was the that lake was too shallow and murky to swim in near the dock, but we paddled over to the pool and used Chris's passes for a nice swim there. We have such happy memories, and I'm so glad we stayed at this cabin. I would recommend it to friends, definitely.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Set back from the road and screened in by the surrounding trees, it felt very peaceful and private. The view of the lake was beautiful, particularly in the evening, and the large deck was perfect for lounging outside. The house comes equipped with a number of boats and paddles, as well as board games for rainy days. We were a group of 8, and the house easily could have accommodated a few more.

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week during Christmas and hosted some friends and family. There is plenty of room to sleep up to 12, as advertised. The location was right on the lake, with great views, and it was very private. The great room layout was great, and the stone fireplace was a treat. Chris was nice enough to allow us to put up a Christmas tree, and decorate. When I showed photos to family and friends they were very impressed; often stating that it was the "perfect" Christmas log cabin getaway. Chris was very responsive with any questions we had. There is a Stewarts close by for essential groceries, but if you need to do a full shopping trip its about 20 minutes away to a full sized grocery store- just something to keep in mind, but we didn't find it to be a problem. Windham is about 30 minutes away, but unfortunately we didn't get there due to the record heat! We did get a bit of snow our last day, and it was just enough to do some sledding in the yard. The passes for amenities were left out for us, but we didn't make use of them this time. I would certainly recommend this home, and hope I can make a trip back again.
