Surrounded by trees, lake and nature with all comforts and amenities extended. This house is private and safe. Heated and air-conditioned, the living room and bedroom include a fireplace for added warmth. The large oval deck leads from the living room and looks out onto the water as does the bedroom's own balcony. A row boat sits at the water's edge. This three level house has an all wood interior, wide pine plank floors throughout and vaulted ceilings. A sleeping loft includes a window and skylight. The bathroom's sloped ceiling also includes a skylight with claw-footed tub sunk in Mexican paving tiles. Original art and objects along with turn of the century antiques add to the warmth and charm of this original and unique home on the lake. Internet access and HD TV available. Beautiful in all seasons.
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. One steps back in time driving through the village and finds things still lovely, still fairly secret, as it nestles in the foothills of the Catskills known as the Hudson Valley.

Wintery cabin feels
The space Donna provides has a lot of character and a real homey feeling to it. The house was easy to navigate with its symmetrical design. The rooms are all quickly accessible and generously decorated with cabin aesthetic. Along with the homey feeling the rooms offer, the view and silence of nature insight of the balcony make you feel the freshness of the morning. Each room (the bathroom, the living room, the loft) were different experiences a part of the cabin time feel. Would love to go back when it's warmer. Would recommend to any cabin enthusiasts or couples.
Damian....Happy New Year! I would love for you to experience another season, a warmer one, when you can experience the sounds of nature along with the wonderful wild life, racing through the trees for our amusement. Come back
Perfect weekend getaway!
Stayed with my husband and 2 year old daughter for the weekend. The view is beautiful I could have sat on the couch with the fire all weekend!
Great house perfect for a couple
Quiet, cute and perfect for a couple, Donna's house has everything you need for a great weekend on the lake.
Perfect lake house getaway
We had a wonderful stay here on Sleepy Hollow lake. The house was cozy and comfortable and the view can't be beat. It was a perfect weekend away for city folks.
Fantastic Rustic Getaway
We had the most amazing weekend at Donna's treehouse next to a lake. It had everything you need for cooking and relaxing, an amazing deep soaking bath and direct access to the lake. We would absolutely recommend it to anyone and would love to return in the near future! Thanks Donna!
Just like it says an amazing romantic getaway!
First off Donna was a sweetheart she was so nice and was willing to share all the good places to go in the area. Just like many of the other reviews the place was amazing the pictures did not do it justice. It was me my wife and the dog and it was perfect for the three of us. The deck in the back was definitely the highlight for us, it was nice in the shade you can go outside and play games without being in the blaring sun and an amazing view of the sunset at night. We would highly recommend this for anyone looking to get away for some peace and quiet with beautiful surroundings. The town of Hudson is also fantastic, as where the locals. Thanks again Donna for an amazing experience!!!
Great to have you, Michael. Anytime!
