About Carol Hoffman

We purchased this land from my cousin. It is land that has been in the family since the 1800's. We decided to build a vacation rental on the property so vacationers can enjoy the sunsets and mountain views this property provides. Our house is located two lots down from this property, so we are accessible at all times

Carol Hoffman purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Carol Hoffman chose Lake Placid

The Adirondack Loj Road has the best views in the Town of North Elba. We couldn't just buy this property and let it sit. We felt we needed to share it with other people.

What makes this cottage unique

You are far enough out of town to feel secluded but close enough to the Mountains and Lake Placid to take in all the activities the area has to offer.

Lovely House - Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice, comfortable, private & well kept. The location was just a 5 minute drive to the center of town & a 20 drive to Whiteface. The beds are comfortable & the owner supplies all the amenities you may need. I would recommend this house for a vacation.

This property is actually better than the pictures! And the View is breathtaking!!

  • 5 of 5

It’s hard to get a 26 year old who lives in Chicago, and a 27 year old who lives in Boston together for a strictly family long weekend. We tried this past summer and everyone was just too busy. But when we put this particular weekend on the calendar, and then promised to bring our 5 year old labradoodle along to this gorgeous, mountain side retreat.....well, we had a shot! So, it went so well that we are preparing to book the same repeat weekend again next year....just the “5” of us, because it could not have been anymore perfect; the home, the view, the distance from town, the snow, the cold, the fireplace, the TV with non-stop Olympic coverage on it, the most comfortable beds and blankets in the world, and the wide open kitchen! If anyone thinking about staying here is on the fence??!!, then get off and get off quickly. You will have the time of your life here at this place, provided you bring the right attitude and the ones you love. The setting is beyond ideal for creating one of the most memorable times of your lives. It did for our family, and we have been fortunate enough to have had our share of memorable trips. My wife and I have been coming to LP since before the ‘80 Olympics and we intend to put this long weekend at the top of our memory list. Book it!! But please, not when we want it! Big Frank from Loudonville. And P.S., I did not get paid for this review (LOL)

Amazing Views, Cozy Feel, and Pet Friendly !

  • 5 of 5

This Property is a hidden Gem. We started off our weekend doing a quick hike with our Chocolate Lab and then checking in. Upon arrival the home was very welcoming and clean. The placement of this property is perfect as its close to the mountains and town. The beds were comfortable and our Chocolate lab enjoyed laying next to the fire. As this was our first homeaway experience Carol was very helpful and response to any questions that came up. We highly recommend this hidden Gem and cant wait to come back for another stay.

Great Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at Torrance Hill View in January 2018. The cabin was a nice size (it easily accommodated 6), beautifully appointed, very comfortable, and had every convenience. The location was perfect - it afforded a great view of the mountains, was 10 min from the trail heads at the Adirondack Loj, 10 minutes from the Olympic Complex, 10 minutes from the village of Lake Placid, and about 20 minutes from White Face Ski Resort. The owners were very accommodating as well. We would definitely recommend Torrance Hill View as a vacation destination and would love to return ourselves!

We were so impressed when we saw the property, the pictures don’t do it justice. It was very clean and cozy. When we come back to Lake Placid again we will definitely be staying here again.
