Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Bethlehem Village - Sleepy Hollow Cottage

Adorable 2 Bedroom Lake Cottage- Very Quiet and Private!

This very cute cottage is a minute's walk to the lake within a private community. It has 2 br- one in the loft area with a queen bed and one downstairs with bunk beds, bath with shower/tub, gas fireplace for the chilly nights, living room, game area with nintendo wii system/games/small tv, and well equipped kitchen. Enjoy the quiet evenings on the screened front porch or snuggled next to a fire in the firepit in the small fenced backyard. The backyard also has a gas grill and picnic table to enjoy an outdoor meal. The use of the kayak and canoe on the motor free lake is an added bonus to this very serene property. As the leaves begin to change colors, you will be mesmerized by the beauty as you hike or bike through the Litchfield Hills. This property is within 15 minutes of great antique shops in the very popular Woodbury area. It is within 30 minutes of more than one CT winery! You will be quite satisfied staying at our homey little cottage!

Why Betsy and TJ Caridi chose Bethlehem

My husband and I have owned this cottage for several years. From the time we bought it, we have completely renovated it. You will see a picture of the original cottage hanging on the wall when you visit us. The result of our work is a sweet, comfortable get away. We spend as much time as possible here ourselves! It is a private community, so it is quiet and everyone has an enormous amount of respect for everyone else's property. It just feels good to be here!!

What makes this cottage unique

We have always wanted to have a little get away by a lake. We looked in many places over the course of several years. We stumbled upon our little gem about 10 years ago. My husband is a builder, so he saw the vision of what this cottage could become. We have put lots of TLC into making it a clean, comfortable place to spend our summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much! The cottage was left just as clean as you found it. We enjoyed having you as our guest!

Perfect little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was an excellent choice for our weekend. It was very quiet, clean, and had a nice size side yard along with a small fenced in backyard with grill. The bed was very comfortable, which is usually the biggest draw back to spending the night someplace other than home.

Great little Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I had a great time at "Sleepy Hollow". The cabin is clean , well appointed and decorated very nicely.

The flowers and snacks are a nice touch!

The outside area's are great for entertaining, and the lake is very nice.

Betsy and TJ are very helpful and very nice people to talk to!

We look forward to staying there again next year!!

Very, very good.

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 seniors with grandchildren 5 and 8 years. Cottage is very comfortable, enough space in living room and upstairs. Screened porch is very enjoyable. We found there everything we needed for our stay (I mean utensils and other household items). Cottage grounds are more than enough for kids to play. The place is very quiet, beach is in a 2 minutes walk, and most of the time we were the only people on the beach. Another beach with public access is across the lake in something like 3-4 minutes drive; this one has platform, and jumping from it caused kids' great excitement. Boat rack is pretty close, and we used canoe. It is very stable, we all fit in it, and we were comfortable in it on the lake.

Cottage was well prepared for our stay, and looked cozy, and I would say, inviting. All in all it was a wonderful stay, and the only thing to regret is that it lasted only one week.

Owner's Response: Mikhail- It was such a pleasure to have you and your family at our cottage for the week. It makes us so happy when families spend time enjoying each other! I'm so glad you had such fantastic weather, too. That made it possible for you to really enjoy all that the lake has to offer. Thank you so very much for how nicely you left the cottage. You are wonderful renters and we hope to see you again next season! Be well! Betsy

Great Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Sleepy Hollow. The online description and photos matched the real thing (doesn't happen often)! We loved the house, grilling out and eating out back. Loved the peaceful screened porch--I went out every morning with a book and my cup of tea before anyone else was up. Nice that the owners converted the lower bunk bed from a twin into a full--great for our 6'1" son. Really enjoyed canoeing/kayaking on the pond--hadn't done that for years--and got to see a blue heron (on my wish list). A wonderful week at a great cottage; definitely want to do this again!
