When we renovated and redesigned the floor plan of Hawthorne we wanted to open the house up into a greater expansive living area. We wanted to design the bedrooms so that each one offered a fantastic view of the mountains. My wife, Sara, is a professional chef and cookbook author so we wanted the house to have a wonderfully functional kitchen for entertaining and testing recipes. Since we wouldn't be using the house full time we wanted to design the house as a vacation rental and built in many amenities and comforts with renters in mind.
The location is private and quiet but only a short walk, bike ride, or drive to all of the local attractions. It's a two minute walk to Mirror Lake, the lake the village sits on and a five minute walk to downtown Lake Placid.
