This is a great place to spend vacation. I've gone a few times in the summer and winter. It's such a beautiful location with lots of hiking, skiing, kayaking all at your fingertips. Jean and Dave are the best hosts you could ask for and have such a clean and beautiful house. I will be back many times to come!

Thank you Jean for a wonderful, relaxing, tranquil weekend away! We had a great time. Your home was just what we were looking for. The Sleepy Hollow Community was so pleasant. We felt at home, and I particularly was impressed by all of the little details that you think of for your guests. We were able to really relax and enjoy our family time. The location is serene, the home is immaculate and the amenities really allow you to have a great vacation. We look forward to staying a whole week next year!

Thank you, Jean, for providing such a homey, comfortable family retreat. It reminded me of my own home with the variety of outdoor areas and accommodating family/kitchen area. It was most welcoming to have the house so generously equipped. It was the perfect retreat for my busy adult sons and me to have quality family time together! The only suggestion I could make, is for one more kayak, so we could all go paddling together! Your neighbour was also very friendly and helpful!
“Great get-a-way - on a lake and close to the mountains!!”

We rented this house for a long weekend this spring. The house is ideally located on a quiet cove on the beautifully serene lake. The house is clean, comfortable and convenient to the mountains for hiking, fishing and all that the Catskills offer.There was more than enough room for my family of 4 to relax. The kids loved playing pool downstairs. My husband and I loved sitting on the deck watching the sun set over the beautiful mountains. We look forward to renting this house again in the summer when we can enjoy all that this great community has to offer including swimming and kayaking on the lake.
