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.

“Best Vacation Ever” & “great location”

  • 5 of 5

The home was wonderful , spacious and located in a spectacular setting: near the end of the Sleepy Hollow Lake, it is quiet and restful.

Beautiful comunity & a must to do boating & fishing in the lake.

We will definitely visit again during summer. The owner Aldo is cooperative & make sure the guest enjoy their stay.

Loved the house and the lake. The only negative is the shallow water near the home was not good for swimming

Owner's Response: Water level was lower than usual because dam was open. Lake has a white sand beach and other areas for swimming accessible by kayaking

Great place to explore the Catskill Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our family vacation- with a comfortable house with enough space to accommodate our family of 8. We enjoyed riding the Zip line at Hunter Mountain (45 min drive), horseback riding (<30 min drive, and an easy hike to nearby waterfall. We kayaked EVERY day and my Octogenarian Mother came out for rides in a well maintained canoe. The last night we roasted marshmallows in the fire pit under the stars. Wonderful time enjoyed by all.

Perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

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.
