Overview

About the property

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.

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!

Wonderful cabin and view

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great stay at Chris' cabin. We loved the open concept layout of the living room and kitchen. This allowed us to really enjoy each other's company. The windows in front of the cabin had amazing views of the water. Would definitely stay here again!

Great house, great location, minor improvements needed

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great time at this house. I would definitely recommend it to others. I've separated out some pros and cons below:

Pros:

+ house itself is very nice and new. It's large, open, and great for hanging out and playing games. The views are also excellent.

+ while small, Athens is a nice town with charming buildings.

+ it was easy to communicate with the owners and everything ran smoothly.

+ plenty of towels and linens.

+ it was cold while we were there, but the porch was nice and would probably be great on a warmer weeekend.

Cons:

+ the kitchen was not well-organized. Maybe the owner could add some labels to where things go so that it can remain organized.

+ if you want to cook a good meal for a larger group of people, you may want to bring additional kitchen supplies. We had a tough time finding ladles, baking sheets, and spatulas.

+ we saw a mouse inside the house. Isolated incident, but still a mouse.

+ some pieces of furniture were falling apart or a bit grungy.

All in all - great weekend for our group!

Lovely home with great amenities

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property over Labor Day weekend. The owner was responsive and accommodating throughout. Lovely view. There were several kayaks, canoes, and even a motorboat available for our use, complete with life jackets. There was a pool and a swimming area in the lake walking distance from the house. We enjoyed the fire pit, too. Great getaway.

Perfect Getaway / Stunning Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is amazing. Just the right distance from NYC and very much worth the trip!

My partner and I just completed a 5 day stay with our two dogs. The cabin is private, quite and huge! Beautifully crafted, great open space on the first floor, perfect for cooking, playing games, family time, and watching TV. The deck is perfect for grilling, reading, lounging and watching sunsets.

While we did not hit the water, the house is more than well equipped for those in love with water sports. Kayaks, canoes and much more.

The bedrooms are great and some of the furniture is handcrafted which added an extra special touch.

The grounds are beautiful, private and quiet, perfect for hiking.

Chris is very sweet and attentive, and we look forward to our next stay!

The owner is not helpful and not honest

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in this cabin for 4 days.

The draining system in this building is very problematic. Every time, every somebody take a shower, we had to wait two hours to drain the water in the tub completely. Apparently, there is something stuck in the pipe, because all the bathroom have the same problem. When we reported this problem, the owner did nothing to help.

The owner also retained the deposit and blamed us for making the house dirty and leaving cups or plates around, totally based on his imagination. The fact is, we followed all the rules the owner set. We cleaned up all the plates, dishes, cups or pots. And we took pictures when we left the house. I can bare understand why the people can keep blaming around without evidence. We will report this to Homeaway.

Owner's Response: This review is amazingly different than reality. This renter has filed a review 6 weeks after their stay at our cabin. Immediately following their stay, I got a report from our cleaning team that the house was a complete disaster. We have had dozens of people stay with us and our cleaning team ranked them as one of the top 3 worst in terms of cleanliness. When I suggested via email that I MAY choose to charge them an additional fee to clean the cabin, due to the extent of filth that they left, they immediately filed a claim with their credit card for the full amount of their security deposit. Does the timing of this review coincide with a decision from their credit card company? I'll let the reader decide. I have not retained their deposit, as claimed in this review. I would gladly have released it, had they not filed a claim for it with their credit card company. That claim was made within a week of the end of their stay, so I had no opportunity to process any refund. Hopefully, those reading reviews of the cabin that include comments about my interaction with our guests, understand that this review, in particular, has been written by renters who do not want to own their behavior. If all that they claim was real, I believe that I would have received the pictures that they took instead of them getting defensive and filing a nonsense claim. We continue to love renting to those who appreciate all that our cabin home has to offer. Unfortunately, we sometimes end up with renters who can neither appreciate the cabin, nor respect that they are in another person's home.
