"Very comfortable and convenient accommodations. Everything was a-ok. We appreciated that the kitchen was outfitted with decent quality knives -- a rare treat compared to most rentals.
Location is excellent. Quiet sport that's quite literally seconds to town, and a short drive to Whiteface. Highly recommend Liquids & Solids, the cheffy pub just around the corner."

"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!!"

"My family rolled the dice on Random Scoots and won.
If you are looking for somewhere that provides tranquility, comfort and beauty while still having accessibility this is it. The cottage is well designed, meticulously maintained and cozy for the whole family. The clean well maintained yard under the tall pine provides an awesome setting to just sit and relax, or have a game of croquet. The enchanting hamlet of Keene with its great cafes and eclectic shops is walking distance. The local swimming hole, with both small sand beach and rock to jump from into the Ausable is also a short stroll below the cabin. All other outdoor pursuits from the best hikes, waterfalls and rock climbs within the High Peaks are a very short drive. Tom and Doreen were outstanding hosts remaining accessible and available while respecting and not infringing upon our privacy in any way. Great people, exceptional environment and amazing experience. My family strongly recommends this location and would like to say a personal thanks to Tom and Doreen."

"We had a large group stay at Camp Owaissa for a family reunion in early August. I feel like we took advantage of every inch of the camp. We had 6 teens sleeping in the tent every night, and they loved it! We had fires (almost) every night outdoors at the fire pit. Three generations of family making s'mores and talking and singing around the campfire was fun! We also really enjoyed the porch and it's incredible view of Lake Placid. We spent the afternoon hours swimming off of the dock and boating. The kitchen was perfect for meal prep, and the fire pit and grill both made big dinners easy. The kitchen is well appointed with utensils and any bar needs. There were 2 fridges and a washer and dryer. Everything was comfortable and in great working condition. We would love to make it back to Camp Owaissa in the future. I think the kids will have great lifetime memories from their week at this wonderful property. Thanks for allowing us to share in it!"
