Activities abound to create a lifestyle you will love

No matter if you live on our lakefront or have a home on one of our quiet cul-du-sacs, you’re surrounded by the beauty of nature, boundless water and land sports and recreation of all kinds, and a variety of year-round community events held at the Sleepy Hollow Lake Community Lodge.

Your wonderful world of water recreation

The love of nature and water recreation is the foundation of the lifestyle you love at Sleepy Hollow Lake.

Sleepy Hollow Lake is known as one of the best large- and small-mouth bass fishing habitats in New York State. Our Community Association even sponsors a yearly Bass Tournament for adults and children. In addition to record-setting bass, the lake is well-stocked with crappie, bluegill, sunfish, and even holds the current New York State record for White Crappie.

Kayaking, water skiing, tubing, and pontoon boating are favorite resident pastimes. You can launch your watercraft from your personal lakefront boat dock, from one of the many slips available at the community marina, or of several kayak launch sites around the lake. And since Sleepy Hollow is a small-craft lake, with a 50-HP outboard motor limit and no jet-skis permitted, noise and water turbulence are kept at a minimum.

Fun in the water isn’t confined to the lake, as two life-guard protected community swimming pools where the YMCA offers swim lessons and community groups join for daily water aerobics. Also available is a 100-foot sand beach that provides swimming fun in the sun for individuals and families alike.

Sleepy Hollow Lake Lodge

From pancake breakfasts, holiday parties, family nights, and Super Bowl parties, to 4th of July fireworks, weddings, receptions, graduation ceremonies, our Lodge is there for you.

Tennis Anyone?

Sleepy Hollow Lake also offers modern sports facilities for when it comes time for a little friendly competition.

A pair of lighted tennis courts with Clubhouse is located at the north end of the community and a second pair of courts near the south end of Sleepy Hollow provide convenient access day or night. The community Sports Complex is home to a full-size basketball court for future stars or weekend warriors, as well as a well-maintained baseball/softball field, Bocce ball court to test your skill in this classic Italian pastime, and a 250-yard open driving range to sharpen your skills for a tour of the nearby golf courses.

The Tennis clubhouse also hosts a variety of indoor group activities such as The Book Club, Mah Jong and Stitch ‘n Chat functions, as well as Canasta, Bridge, and many other table games and get-togethers.
