Thank you!

Beautiful house and wonderful property

  • 4 of 5

The interior of the house is beautiful and there is a lot of space. Bedrooms are very large. Living room and sunroom combine for a sizeable living space. The kitchen is wonderful for cooking. There is also a small dining room.

It would have been nice to know that the water in the house is very hard. There is a softener but the water is still very yellow. We ended up buying spring water for cooking and drinking.

The heat in the house does not distribute evenly but this only mattered because it was unseansably cold while were there in January.

When the owners add a second shower in the upstairs bathroom, the house will be even better.

We will definitely stay there again.

Loved Our Stay At Sleepy Hollow

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage! We drove to Michigan from Minnesota so that our family could celebrate Christmas together. Sleepy Hollow was a perfect place. We cooked Christmas dinner. The kitchen had been newly renovated and had everything we needed, plus more. Loved the beautiful stainless appliances. The entire place was clean. We enjoyed watching the ducks and geese. We had a wonderful view of the lake from both upstairs and down. It snowed, so we got to see the lake opened and then totally covered with ice. Our time at Sleepy Hollow went way too fast.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. We were here in December, but i bet all seasons offer amazing amenities with the lake. Tons to do in the surrounding area. Very calming setting, but plenty of room for a crowd! Hosts were available if we needed them! With family in the area, we will definatly stay here again!
