Wenn wir renoviert und neu gestaltet, den Grundriss Hawthorne wollten wir das Haus bis in eine größere expansive Wohnbereich zu öffnen. Wir wollten Design der Zimmer, damit jeder bot eine fantastische Aussicht auf die Berge. Meine Frau, Sara, ist ein Profi-Koch und Kochbuchautor, so wollten wir das Haus, um einen wunderbar funktionale Küche für unterhaltsame und Testen Rezepte. Da wir nicht mit dem Haus in Vollzeit werden wollten wir das Haus als Ferienhaus zu entwerfen und in vielen Einrichtungen gebaut und Komfort mit Mietern im Auge.
Die Lage ist privat und ruhig, aber nur einen kurzen Spaziergang, Fahrrad fahren, oder mit dem Auto, um alle lokalen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Es ist zwei Minuten zu Fuß zu Mirror Lake, See das Dorf sitzt auf und fünf Minuten zu Fuß in die Innenstadt von Lake Placid.
This house was great for our family get together. The beds were comfy, the bedrooms were lovely with great bathrooms. The kitchen was gourmet with everything you could need. The views were gorgeous and location was so convenient to town. I would highly recommend this lovely home.
This is our 2nd time at Hawthorne Home (it is a home, not just a house) We are a group of 4 couples that take yearly winter getaways for what we call our Big Chill Weekend. From the moment you walk in you feel like you are visiting a friend or relative because this is not your average rental. Everything you could possibly need or want is here. The view is spectacular and everything is close by for whatever Winter activity you choose. Nothing like sitting in front of the fireplace sipping wine and playing games after a long day of snowmobiling, skiing or shopping. There are tons of activities and restaurants. The owners are awesome and just a phone call away for anything you need. If you love to cook as we do at least once during our stay, the kitchen is awesome. Everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING you need is there. It is so warm and cozy and as much as I would like to keep it our little secret it is too good NOT to share. The area and location are as perfect as the peaceful view. My review can't do this home as much justice as it deserves. It is truly perfect. Can't wait until next year!!
From the moment we ( 6 adults) turned the corner and saw the house, to the moment we had to pack our bags and say goodbye, we could not have enjoyed our time in Lake Placid to a greater degree. The late summer weather was a dream come true and Hawthorne House was the very definition of hospitality, pairing classic Adirondack charm with modern comforts.
Features that stood out to us were: the large private bedrooms with ensuite baths; the ensuite sleeping porches that enabled us to fall asleep "outside" in the cool night air beneath a canopy of stars (all the while being only two steps away from our warm and cozy bedroom); the kitchen that was large, equipped with everything possible, and which ended up being where we spent a lot of time hanging out; a separate TV room that prevented the TV from interfering with conversation (and vice versa); the mountain view from the front windows and from the outdoor dining table; and perhaps most of all the way the house simply fostered relaxation.
Beyond the house, our days easily filled with a variety of activities that met each of our interests. Dog walks around Mirror Lake, mountain biking, road riding, scenic drives through the fall foliage, casual strolls over to and around town, shopping, and visiting Olympic Venues - "Do you believe in Miracles ?" - were just a few of the ways we enjoyed all that the region has to offer. We only went out for dinner twice, but both times our destinations were only a short walk away.
From my first contact with Peter he was interested in our visit to Lake Placid, and did all he could to help us plan our stay in the Adirondacks. The listing description was accurate, the photos accurately reflected the house, and the property was clean and well maintained. We hope to return someday.
Our group of 6 (3 adult couples), booked a long weekend here for our Annual Mini Winter Get-a-way. Right now, I'm wishing one of our six was a writer so they could do this review justice. Simply put, our Friday-Monday trip far exceeded our expectations. The home is lovely and you truly feel like your at home, not in rental property. The location is perfect, the home is perfect, the area is perfect ... Already booking dates for our next trip. Read the reviews - the raves are NO exaggeration!
What a fantastic place. The rooms were all lovely and the beds comfortable. We were spoilt by an abundance of cooking magazines to read and an incredible cookbook selection. The house was within walking distance to Mirror Lake and our favorite restaurant, Liquids and Solids. The kitchen was well set up and a joy to cook in. We did have a little trouble with the downstairs fireplace and an alarm but the owner was quick to take care of the problems and easy to reach.
We spent two weeks at Hawthorne and had a fantastic time. For a party of eight with adults and children it was a perfect home. Everyone had their own room and privacy and separate bathrooms but we spent most of our time in the kitchen and family room gathered around the fireplace.
The location of this house is great, just off off Lake Placid with beautiful mountain views. We walked around Lake Placid as often as possible and into town for dinners and shopping. Within fifteen minutes we were skiing at Whiteface mountain and grocery shopping was just around the corner. Great access to mountain sports and hiking too.
The layout of the home if perfect for larger families. We gathered in the TV room for football games but spend most of our time hanging out by the fireplace. I really liked that there was no TV in the fireplace room so we actually were able to enjoy everyones company. The fireplace in the master bedroom is also great for a cold evening getaway from the kids. The updated kitchen with professional appliances was great for Christmas dinner and baking cookies.
Peter was very accommodating and helpful with everything from restaurant recommendations to local advice on shopping - always available when we needed him. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and we will return when the opportunity presents itself.
