About MaryKaye Small

We have made Lake Placid our home since 1979. Raised 3 children and run a successful Main Street business. We are 46ers, (hike 46 peaks that are above 4600 ft) cross country ski, down hill ski, water ski and truly enjoy this beautiful area.

MaryKaye Small purchased this cottage in 2009

Why MaryKaye Small chose Lake Placid

We chose this property to purchase and rent out because we wanted others to be able to visit beautiful Lake Placid and have an affordable place in the center of town. A home is much quieter that a hotel/motel.

What makes this cottage unique

While staying here you can walk to Main Street, where all the gift shops and restaurants are. The Olympic Ice center has skating available to the public.

nature, sparkling clear lakes, high peak mountains, hemlock and pine forests as well resist the temptation to play a few outdoor sports.

Everything we hoped for during our recent trip to Lake Placid.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. The house was clean and tidy. We had a very late arrival and Mary was so accommodating, arranged for the key to be left where we could find it, heat and lights were on for us. The 3 bedrooms were comfortable with fresh soft linens and plenty of towels. The living room had plenty of room for the four of us but it would have been hard for more than the four of us to sit around the TV to watch the news or a movie. But there were also TVs in 2 of the bedrooms if that were to be an issue for anyone else. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of plates, cups, utensils, cookware and a drip coffee maker. Oven and dishwasher cleaning working, cleaning supplies on hand. The washer and dryer were nice to have on hand. There is a small deck on the side of the house adjacent to the garage but there is no backyard (if that matters to anyone). The house is just a block walk to the center of town, which we loved. But it is up/down a steep hill- we had no problem but beware if it is icy or you are not in good health. We look forward to staying here again!

The house was very comfortable and the ability to walk to town for breakfast, etc... was ideal.

Would Rent Again

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the house is. It is really clean and in good condition. It was nicely prepared for our arrival. The heat was on, bed linens in place etc. You never know what you are going to get, and I can say that we were all beyond pleased with this house.

Mary Kaye was very responsive and pleasant to work with. The house is in a great location, we were able to walk everywhere. But be aware that Lake Placid is hilly. We did enjoy the exercise.

Lake Placid is such a nice town. The lake is beautiful. We went on a dogsled ride, visited the ski jump and did the bobsled. We enjoyed the local breweries and restaurants.

We would visit Lake Placid again and would not hesitate to rent this house again. It actually cost us less to rent with another couple than get hotel rooms. It was so great to have a nice living room and full kitchen and no noisy hotel guests.

Wonderful home! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice home, perfect for our group of three adults and two small children. The place had everything we needed and is just a couple of blocks from town. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with everything we needed to cook and prepare our meals - thank you for that! The Property Manager was really easy to work with and incredibly responsive. We highly recommend!

Great Location for Town and Ironman

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at the Hillcrest Propery. I really enjoy the location to both Main Street and the Ironman Event. Literally, once you arrive you won't need a car again unless you want to go out of town. The house is got a cute vibe to it and is kept well. I appreciate the washer and dryer as well as the garage we could put our bikes and so forth for safe storage. Working with the Home Owner and property manager was very easy. They were very flexible for last minute planning on my part and were able to make things work for the both of us. I would recommend it for a family with kids or two couples with a couple kids. There was plenty of room. Cable and Wifi was a great addition as well. If I go back I'll stay again.
