Summary:
Welcome to "Circle House," a 4-bed, 2-bath circular home in Athens, New York.

Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, cozy fireplace, and a large wrap around deck with hot tub and gas fire-pit for apres-ski relaxing. With community lake and pool access, it's the perfect Catskills getaway.

Superb location just a 2.5-hour drive from NYC, a mere 20 minutes to Hudson with Amtrak access, and only 40 minutes to Albany and Hunter/Windham ski resorts.

The Space:
Welcome to "Circle House," a uniquely designed 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom circular home that combines style and functionality for an exceptional Catskills getaway. Located in the heart of Athens, New York, this property offers a serene ambiance that blends seamlessly with the beauty of the surrounding landscape. It's conveniently located just a 30-minute drive from thrilling ski resorts and a stone's throw from the tranquil shores of Sleepy Hollow Lake.

The top level open plan design hosts the fully equipped kitchen with a sleek breakfast bar and a quaint dining table, while the living room centered around an inviting fireplace to unwind in style. The King primary suite, featuring an en-suite bathroom, promises a restful night's sleep. A shared hall bathroom with a shower serves both the suite and a second bedroom with a Queen bed, completing this level's charming accommodation.

Descending to the lower level, discover two additional Queen bedrooms, each offering a snug escape for your guests. A cozy TV den to gather for evening hangouts or board game sessions.

Outdoors, the highlight is the expansive wrap-around deck, where you can immerse yourself in the natural surroundings while warming up by the fire pit or unwinding in the hot tub. This is the ideal place to relax after a day of skiing, and when the summer sun beckons, make the most of the community lake access and pool.

This uniquely styled lake house is situated in the Sleepy Hollow Lake community, offering proximity to the beach, pool, marina, basketball/tennis courts and parks. Its functional open floor plan on both levels maximizes space and light, allowing you to fully appreciate the captivating westerly-facing mountain views and breathtaking sunsets. The property to the rear is forever wild, ensuring your privacy.

This home seamlessly combines modern living with natural beauty, creating an irresistible opportunity to experience the Catskills like never before.

Guest Access:
Note: This is an HOA community and additional documents are required to be completed upon booking.
You will have complete, private access to the home. The pool and lake access is shared with all guests and owners in the HOA.

The Neighborhood:
Nestled on the banks of the Hudson River in Greene County, New York, Athens is a historic village known as the "Gateway to the Hudson Valley." Its picturesque waterfront offers stunning views of the Catskill Mountains and serves as a hub for outdoor activities such as kayaking, swimming, and riverside concerts during the summer.

Athens boasts well-preserved 19th-century architecture and invites visitors to explore its rich history, with attractions like the Blenheim-Gilboa Visitor Center and the Thomas Cole National Historic Site just a short drive away. Winter transforms the region into a wonderland for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, with Windham and Hunter Mountain resorts within easy reach. Cozy inns and cafes provide respite from the cold, and ice fishing on the frozen Hudson River is a popular winter pastime.

Athens' strategic location makes it a gateway to nearby towns like Catskill and Hudson, both brimming with cultural and culinary delights, while Albany, the state capital, is a mere 30 miles away. Whether you're seeking historical charm, outdoor adventures, or a peaceful riverside escape, Athens, New York, offers a warm welcome to all.

Getting Around:
Circle house is 2.5 hours from New York City, and you'll definitely want a car to get there and around the area.
In the winter, we recommend a car with four-wheel drive that can handle the snow and gravel roads.
This vacation home is located in Athens. Thomas Cole National Historic Site and Kykuit are local landmarks, and the area's natural beauty can be seen at Hudson River Islands State Park and Schodack Island State Park.
