Overlooking large, private lake - surrounded by trees and natural beauty, all comforts and amenities are extended. Facing west sunsets are seen thru large, glass doors from living room and bedroom - each with their own deck and balcony. A fireplace in both bedroom and living room add warmth and charm as you sit midway up in the tall pines. A row boat sits at the water's edge. This three level home has an all wood interior, wide pine plank floors throughout and high vaulted ceilings. A sleeping loft includes a window and skylight, ideal for a child or third person. The bathroom's sloped ceiling includes a skylight over a claw-footed tub sunk in Mexican paving tiles. Original art and objects along with turn of the century antiques add to the uniqueness of this very original home on the lake. Heat, air conditioning, Internet access and HD TV available. Beautiful in all seasons. Ideal trip at leaf turning time and wonderful for skiers to return to after skiing Hunter and Windham mountains - half hour away..
Through renting my house with guests being introduced to the surrounding beauty, several former renters are now property owners with homes in Sleepy Hollow Lake. Located in the old river town of Athens - little has changed in over two hundred years. Many old, historic houses remain as they were. Both Athens and Coxsackie have charming parks sitting on the Hudson. They offer summer concerts and waterfront dining as the season permits. One steps back in time here and finds things still lovely, still fairly secret, as it nestles in the foothills of the Catskills known as the Hudson Valley.
