"The owner is helpful and accommodating. The house is clean and the rooms are good. Best part of this house is the location, walkable distance to lake and main street. It can easily accommodate 14-16 members. I would definitely recommend this place !"

"Our son is participating in the developmental Skeleton program at the Olympic bobsled track in Lake Placid, so we have occasion to stay in Lake Placid. This is our first year of having to do this - and it's been quite a bit of back and forth from Pennsylvania. We've found much of Lake Placid to be priced competitive to each other, yet the facilities can be VERY different. The Wescotts, however, is an exceptional property at an exceptional price. Cozy, comfortable, well equipped, organized and just terrific. They have a book in the kitchen that is updated weekly with activities which I just thought was the BOMB! It was a pleasure to flip through the pages!! The only recommendation I would make would be to label the fireplace thermostats. It took us FOREVER to figure that out, esp. since the one on the main floor is in celsius - not fahrenheit. Fine for Canadians but not-so for us not-too-bright Americans. :)) (Nothing like a little self-deprecating humor!)
Anyway, thank you for a wonderful stay!!"

"Spent a long weekend here. This is a truly lovely place, well-kept, clean, and beautiful. Eating meals on the porch and watching the light change on Whiteface was relaxing, to say the least. Very convenient to Whiteface, Lake Placid, and plenty of hiking, mountain biking, etc... Highly Recommended!"

"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!!"
