Large Lakefront Chalet With Magnificent Views & Sauna At Sleepy Hollow Lake
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Beautiful house, perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect size for our group of 8 adults and 6 children. The layout of the house is perfect for big groups and particularly for noisy excited children to have space to play while grown-ups chill out! The facilities were just as described and there was plenty to keep everyone entertained. The canoes on the lake really made the vacation, as well as the lovely deck

One thing for visitors to note, the large room with 2 double beds is a mezzanine with no door overlooking the living area.

Only downsides to mention were that the kitchen utensils and dinnerware we're not very clean so we had to wash everything and we also had to clean up dog mess from the garden before we could let the children out to play.

But all in all, we had a memorable holiday and would definitely recommend!

Lovely house that is perfect for big groups.

  • 5 of 5

The house is great for big Family or groups. All basic amenities are provided. There is enough space for everybody. lower level is newly renovated with sauna room.

But the best part is dealing with Melissa. She is very nice and quick to reply and very patient with us. She made our booking very easy.

We will come back this summer!

Relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for a large family vacation. We had 10 adults and six children (ages 1-12). The house was very spacious and able to accommodate each family easily. During the stay, the air conditioning was not working properly. Upon contacting the rental agent, a repair man responded the next morning and was able to resolve the problem. The location is amazing. The lake was private and often felt like we were the only ones on it. This allowed for us to swim, fish, and canoe with ease. We would recommend this property to others.

Addendum to prior review: Listing is NOT fake

  • 4 of 5

As I detailed in my previous review, we were initially locked out of the rental. Our calls, texts and emails to the broker were not returned, which had us afraid we had been duped into booking a fake rental. Thankfully, after knocking on the doors of a few neighbors on the street, we were directed to the nearby residence of another broker, who very graciously helped us out. It turned out that the listing broker was out of town and not able to answer her phone. It would have made our lives much easier had she arranged for a colleague to cover for her in her absence. Despite this initial problem, the house is very lovely with magnificent views of the lake. Our family is having a wonderful time in this sleepy, quiet community. We've had lots of opportunities to swim, canoe and fish. I would recommend this property, but with the caveat that I would check with the broker in advance to ensure she or someone else will be available if there are any problems.

Owner's Response: I want to apologize again for the short time you were unable to gain access to the rental upon your arrival. I was at an out of town event at which I was unable to answer my phone. I had made prior arrangements with the cleaning professional to leave the door unlocked for you as she was leaving very shortly before check-in. Unfortunately, she did not remember to do so, but I am thankful you were taken care of by my colleague within the hour. This was a rare, one time incident and myself and the homeowner pride ourselves in handling needs in an extremely prompt timeframe. As per our conversations and your review, I am glad you otherwise enjoyed your stay at our beautiful rental in the wonderful Sleepy Hollow Lake.
