A little about your hosts...and our family
In October, 1999, the Enman Family of St. George, VT, founded Sleepy Hollow Inn, Ski and Bike Center on the site of the old Sherman Hollow Touring Center. Sandy, a CPA, has her own accounting firm, Enman & Associates. Dave a builder and used bookstore owner, and his son, Eli, a Middlebury College graduate, spent a year completely renovating the Inn and the trails. Eli is now the General Manager. Molly joined the rest of her family in 2002. She is now the weddings/event coordinator for the Inn. The Enmans have dreamed of owning an inn and ski center for years; it is very exciting to be getting their dreams off the ground.
History of Sleepy Hollow
Sleepy Hollow Inn, Ski and Bike Center was purchased by the Enman Family in 1999. After a complete lodge renovation in 2000, the ski area and inn opened for business in December, 2000. Sleepy Hollow was formerly the Sherman Hollow Ski Area (1978-1993), which featured a 3km lighted loop (on the Ridge Road trail), a 50 seat restaurant, and an outdoor hot tub.
Sleepy Hollow now offers 35 km of cross country skiing in winter, and mountain biking and hiking in the summer. The lodge was renovated to include 8 guest rooms, and a sauna was built. Butternut Cabin, originally constructed in 1980 was rehabilitated as well, and offers gorgeous view of Camel's Hump. The Round Barn Event Center was completed in June, 2006, and the Pavilion was built in the spring of 2008. Both the Round Barn and Pavilion were designed and built by owner Dave Enman. Sleepy Hollow now hosts numerous weddings and group events in both summer and winter.
