Athens house description

Surrounded by trees, lake and nature, all comforts and amenities are extended to visitors here. This is a private and safe setting. Heated and air-conditioned, there is a fireplace in the living room and bedroom. A large oval deck leads from the living room and looks out onto the water as does the bedroom's balcony. A row boat sits at the water's edge. This three level house has an all wood interior with wide pine plank floors throughout and vaulted ceilings. A sleeping loft acts as a second bedroom with window and skylight. The bathroom's sloped ceiling also includes a skylight over a claw-footed tub sunk in Mexican paving tiles. Original art and objects along with some turn of the century antiques add to the warmth and charm of this very original and unique home on the lake. Internet access and HD TV available. Beautiful in all seasons.


Through renting my house and having been introduced to the beauty of this lake and the many things it has to offer, there are now several additional property owners with homes of their own in Sleepy Hollow Lake.
While definitely away in the country, every convenience is nearby. It's a lovely, still fairly secret and uncomercial spot, nestled in the foothills of the Catskills.

                      Minutes Away- hiking, horseback riding, beautiful river park for picnics, two riverfront restaurants with outside dining on the Hudson, drive-in and movie theaters, Hudson's many antique stores, historic houses (Thomas Cook House and Frederick Church's Olana offer tours daily)

                      Of special interest to children are the Howe Caverns - though these are more than minutes away. Albany, within 1/2 hour, offers theatre as does Stockbridge & Great Barrington; festivals abound throughout the summer - brochures in house.

                      30 minutes from 2 Major Ski Resort Areas, Hunter and Windham.

                      Other Activities: Basketball court, row-boating
