The Catskills Lake House is a place to unwind, relax and reclaim your sense of peace and serenity. Come and soak in the beauty of the lake, breathe in the fresh mountain air, and spend your nights gazing under the stars.
This is a place to catch up on conversations over shared meals and delicious wine, a place to slow down and let your mind wander and drift, a place to be with family and friends, a place perfect for making memories.

The Catskills Lake House is a three bed and baths chalet style, cabin-feel, lake-front home. We are located on Sleepy Hollow Lake, in the quaint town of Athens, NY, about 2 hours north of NYC. We are a 15-minute drive from the Catskill village and Hudson, NY and only 40 minutes from both Hunter and Windham Ski Resorts. This is truly a place where you can go unwind, relax and be connected to nature and the outdoors year-round with water activities and hiking in the summer, skiing in the winter, mountain fresh air and dark, starry nights.
We have taken great care to make sure the house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and fully stocked. We have a Ninja coffee maker and French press for your morning brew of choice, Avalon Organic bath products, board games, books, high-speed WiFi, and the TV is equipped with Amazon fire stick.
The house has an open floor plan with cathedral ceilings with beautiful wood beams. It opens up to the living, dining and large kitchen space. There is a wood burning stove for those chilly nights by the fire over a glass of wine and amazing conversations. There are two sliding glass doors which leads to the deck overlooking the beautiful views of Sleepy Hollow Lake. The lower level has a family/game room with a pool table. The TV is downstairs in the family room. We also have a hot tub, outdoor fire pit, grill, outdoor dining area. There is a bedroom on each level of the house. The bedroom on the lower level floor do not have windows, but is very cozy and is an en-suite.
We have a canoe and two kayaks that we allow guests to use during the summer season. This will become available when the lake starts to warm up for swimming. This is typically towards the end of May, near Memorial Weekend. We do have 4 adult size life jackets that will be available, and we require life jacket to be worn in the water at all times.
We ask that you please be respectful of our home and our belongings. We love spending our time in this space and making memories. We love that we can open up our house and share it with you to make memories of your own with your love ones. We have put in a lot of time and effort into making this space as comfortable as possible. Please care for it as if it was your own.
Enjoy your stay!
