Can't wait for next year

  • 5 of 5

For several years my friends and I have stayed at different properties on Sleepy Hollow Lake. This past summer we stayed here. It was the best decision we made. It was spacious, clean, and great for kids. Besides having a private beach area, the kids enjoyed the game room. The best part of the house was the view. It was beautiful. There was plenty of room to sit inside the house, outside on the deck, or on the beach. We hit up Zoom Flume which for the kids, shopping was close and the house sits on a quiet dead end street. Kids played out front as well. We would look forward to making this house our annual vacation spot.

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

By far, this was one of the best vacations our family had in a long time. With 2 young children, my husband and I strive for the perfect mix of location, accommodations and overall ease of travel. This house exceeded all of our expectations. This house is easy to get to and easy to find. When we got there, we could not believe the location! Not only was there a stellar view of the lake, but the house is situated on cul-de-sac which was perfect for the kids too! We could jump off the dock and swim, takes the kayak and canoe out, sit on the beach and read, play baseball, fish and even ride bikes without leaving the comfort of the rental. The size of the house is perfect for any family...large enough to accommodate The Brady Bunch, but still providing the "cozy" feeling for a smaller family like mine. We enjoyed the sunsets from the deck as we ate dinner and even roasted marshmallows by the fire pit at night. We will definitely be back next summer.

Very Family friendly inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Even though there was no snow this time, our family had a wonderful retreat in this expansive, yet cozy home. The fireplace offered the New Year's Eve ambiance that we needed and the downstairs playroom gave our three kids plenty of room to run around! We tubed at nearby Windham Mountain for a day and ate out twice in Athens which was only a 5 minute drive from the home! The cul de sac is a great place for family activity and the views of the lake are breath-taking to say the least!

Family Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house. My family and I have stayed here before just because of the size of the house and the yard. But these new owners have a done a wonderful job giving the home a face lift and really improving the outside space. This year the small pebbled beach had been transformed into a giant sandy beach, which was fantastic for our young kids. They even put in a fire pit by the beach which the adults enjoyed at night after the kids had gone to bed. Now there is also horse shoes, outdoor ping pong, a few new kayaks, a shaded swing and hammock. The interior has been updated and cleaned top to bottom. It really seems like they went they extra mile to make the house feel more like a home, rather than just a rental. My family and I have stayed at several homes on the lake over the years. They community offers so many amenities. This house however has the largest level yard and beach by far. The quite cul de sac is a great place for the kids to ride scooters and bikes. I can't say enough good things about both the inside and outside of the house. The owners were great resources of local events and activities. We are definitely coming back
