Property description

If you are looking for a fun family adventure, a peaceful retreat, or something in between, Hawk Island is the perfect vacation spot for you. Located at the base of Olympic Whiteface Mountain, the 10 acre privately owned island features panoramic views of the Adirondack High Peaks. The wooded trails, lawns, vintage boathouse and docks offer a classic Adirondack Great Camp experience.

The historic 6-bedroom house has a large formal dining room, modern kitchen, porches, and a stone wood burning fireplace in the living room. A boat slip and parking is available at the Lake Placid Marina, for your own boat or rental. The Marina is a short walk to the center of Lake Placid Village and within a few miles of the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Sites.

Unique and charming, this boat access property affords opportunities for boating and water sports, lawn games, easy access to hiking and fishing, and simply spending time relaxing on the dock.

Originally built in 1901 as the summer residence of New York Bishop, Henry Codman Potter, Hawk Island is a truly special property, offering the experience of a classic Adirondack Great Camp, while also providing unequaled access to the summer activities any modern family is looking for in an Adirondack vacation. Hawk Island is one of three islands on Lake Placid, and the only private island.

The house has 6 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The maximum occupancy is 12 people. Pets and smoking are prohibited on the property. The island has boat access only and we are happy to recommend local rental companies. Other amenities include docks, floating dock, screened porches, den, satellite television and internet. The island is available for weekly rentals mid-June through September. Off-season rates are in effect during June and September.
