About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Our home is a very comfortable spacious family friendly house located less than a 3 minute walk to the heart of Main Street in Lake Placid (Starbucks, Steak and Seafood, Movie Theater). The home is ideally suited for 2-3 families with children to experience a wonderful vacation. It is very kid friendly and designed to let you kick your shoes off and relax. The Master bedroom has a King Bed and a 6 foot picture window with mountain views. There is a second Queen bedroom and a large bunk room with 2 sets of bunk beds and a full daybed. There is a 55" television in bunk room and xbox one. The master bedroom and bunk room are upstairs with a full bath and 1 bedroom with queen bed is on the main floor with a guest bathroom with a 48' shower. One set of the bunks is a full size on the bottom and a twin up top and the other set is 2 twin beds. There are video games in the bunk room as well as cable (XBOX one and Wii). The fourth bedroom is a private ground level suite with a second living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. All bedrooms have a television and cable (master has a 42"). The bunk room is a very large and gives the kids somewhere to hang out and play games.

The main floor of the house and fourth bedroom suite were completely renovated in 2009 including the comfortable sun room, living room, dining room, kitchen, guest room, main floor bathroom. The downstairs suite is private and very comfortable. The entire second floor was renovated in June 2016 (Master bedroom, bathroom and bunk room).

There is walk out access to the deck with views of the Mountains and Mirror Lake. Their is a 55' HDTV in the living room with surround sound and full cable. Their is plenty of natural light and all the ceilings have been done in Pine and high hats for a very Adirondack feel. There is a comfy couch in the sunroom and an additional tree stump pub table for 4. There is also a full pub style dining room table which is also ideal for playing games (including POKER and we keep a full set of poker chips in the house). The living room also has a couch, chair and ottoman. Overall it is a very open floor plan with room to spread out. We converted the large granite fireplace to gas to allow that comfortable feeling of a warm fire with push button convenience.

The kitchen has brand new appliances and granite counter tops. The Kitchen is fully equipped to cook meals and has open space between dining room and kitchen.

About Christopher

We have been vacationing in Lake Placid since the early 1990's. It all started with an annual trip up for the Rugby weekend each August. As our family grew we moved from a weekend trip in a hotel to week long vacations in condo's then renting homes. We started coming up multiple times a year and in 2009 found a perfect getaway for family. We love Lake Placid and it has become a big part of our family's life.

Christopher purchased this house in 2009

Why Christopher chose Hillcrest

The location is ideal with a very short walk to the heart of Main Street. It is under 3 minutest to the center of town and 5 minutes to Olympic Center.

What makes this house unique

The layout of the house is set up with all the conveniences of home. Brand new 55" smart TV's were added in the bunk room and living room in 2016. Also the downstairs suite has a second living room and kitchen. Lots of space for a large group!

We loved everything about the house! Dealing with Chris was fantastic! Rapidly responds to emails and great suggestions for things to do in town. Walk to town. 15 minutes from skiing. Would love to rent again next year!

Great place great host- highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here in lake placid. We came with a group of friends to snowboard/ski whiteface and enjoy the town of lake placid. The House was in the perfect location and was exactly, if not more then, what we expected. The landlord was extremely nice and made sure our group had a great vacation. I’m sure we’ll be a return customer and would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Great house centrally located with awesome Adirondack decor!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lake Placid. We picked the right house!. My daughter skated in the Empire State Winter Games (won Gold!). My husband, daughter, my cousin and husband stayed at the house. Lots of room to sit and lounge by the fireplace. We played cards at the table every night. Beds were very comfy. We loved the Adirondack decor throughout the house. Entire house is updated. Kitchen was easy to cook and clean up. House is centrally located to all the great shops, restaurants and Olympic sites (5-10 min walk). The owner recommended great places to eat. We really enjoyed Lake Placid Pub and Brewery (love UBU beer), Dancing Bears, Generations (10 wings and a pint for $12 at Happy Hour) & Jimmy's 21. Went to the Crowne Plaza lounge to drink Martini's during Friday night fire works. Lake Placid is beautiful!! We plan on making this an annual trip. FYI: Need 4 wheel drive vehicle in the winter. Very steep hills. We kept the truck at the house and walked every where.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, Kristy. I spoke to my caretaker today to remove accumulated snow for more parking. Should easily be able to fit 3 cars.
