Perfect Vacation House, Perfect View, Perfect Location!

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

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.

Why The Owner chose Lake Placid Club

We are long time Lake Placid vacationers who wanted a more permanent presence in Lake Placid. Hawthorne is a classic Adirondack retreat and we loved its' uniqueness.

What makes this house unique

Lake Placid has the most amount of diversified recreational activities we have ever found anywhere and it is in the most beautiful settings we have ever found. The house has incredible views and sleeping porches. It's location is private yet close to the heart of Lake Placid. The house is in the center of everything that makes lake Placid special

Great Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Hawthorne and we were just as pleased this time as the last. We have a large party with 2 combined families and the house is very comfortable with beds for all. The living/family room and open kitchen is the best space for everyone to gather in a group with no one left out. Lake Placid is beautiful in the snow and we enjoyed walking to the shops, bars, winter activities and Olympic facilities. The kitchen is so well stocked which brings me to my only suggestion. Perhaps clear out one cabinet to leave space for the groceries, etc. that guest bring with them. We like to cook our big meals and ended up with stuff all over the bench and counters because the cabinets are all full. Thank you to Peter for another great stay!!!

The view from the master bedroom is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply gorgeous! The layout of the living room/dining room is perfect for cooking and conversation while enjoying the gorgeous warmth from the fire.

What I noticed is what I didn’t hear-snoring! The privacy in this house is amazing. The beds are comfortable, and the location, pristine. Peter(owner) was very accommodating and easily reached by phone, when I had a few questions. This property is a perfect get-away, and amidst the -30 degree weather, it held up like a charm. The furnace reacts quickly and the fireplace warms the LR to a cozy temp.

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Hawthorne House several times...sometimes just our family of 5 and once with another family (9 people in all). There is plenty of space for all, including bathrooms and bedrooms. The kitchen is AMAZING--comfortable, spacious, with dishes/cookware/flatware galore. Professional quality stove/oven. Living room/fireplace/cozy space for relaxing and a separate TV room just in case the kids want to watch movies at night. We have always stayed in the winter so have never been able to use the many screened in porches or the outdoor eating area, but they are beautiful as well. The home is close to everything Lake Placid has to offer and is just incredibly comfortable and homey. I love the eclectic decor. The owner is terrific too!

Hawthorne House Was Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a magical week in Lake Placid watching our kids compete in the Junior National Cross Country Ski Championships. I viewed many beautiful houses for our group of 10 parents, but chose the Hawthorne house. Best decision ever!! It truly is a home, not just a rental. We felt as if the owners had stepped out, and would be returning any moment to join us for our fireside chats, delicious dinners prepared in their gourmet kitchen, puzzle time, or just another cup of coffee sitting around the amazing harvest table. The house was cozy and full of natural light, the fireplace created a warm gathering spot in the evenings, and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The location of the house was perfect. It is a quick drive into town, but an equally quick walk. We walked or ran the Mirror Lake loop everyday (as there was no snow for us to ski). We loved learning more about the history of the Lake Placid Club houses which the Hawthorne house is one of. The owners had snippets of that history tucked around the house.

If any of us are lucky enough to make it back to Lake Placid, there would not be any other house that we would consider. Thank you to the owners for sharing your beautiful space!

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.
