About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10 -14)

Spend down time in this luxury downtown five bedroom historic old Shore Crest Retreat, a newly renovated turn of the 19th century off Main Street residence, once the home to Olympic participants. A stone's throw away from Main Street and Mirror Lake, this spacious and very private rental offers all the amenities that an ideally situated downtown location can offer without the hustle and bustle of Main Street.

From its large sitting room with original stone fireplace and wood paneling, walk out on its grand porch to lake and mountain views, July’s fireworks celebration and show almost in your lap, access to restaurants, shopping, and free shuttle service to must-see destinations. The Olympic Arena, Convention Center, ice skating rink, local movie theater, and public beach are within immediate walking distance of this, your rental. Ironman competition and participation couldn’t be any more convenient. Just one hundred feet from your front door to Main Street, catch the free Mountain Valley Shuttle Service for skiers and riders to Whiteface Mountain and ski resort.

Free weekly concerts all summer (see photo of Rusted Root performing) at the band shell in Mid's Park are right there for your pleasure from the comfortable vantage point of our veranda.

Renovations to and remodeling of this vintage home were completed in June of 2011. Each bedroom suite is fitted with its own full sized tiled bathroom and multiple sleeping accommodations. The master bedroom suite also has an additional small room with trundle sofa bed and a screened in sleeping porch overlooking Mirror Lake, Mount Marcy and the distant mountain range. This stately grand home is tastefully decorated with antique and Mission style lighting, hardwood floors, ample closet and storage space, an open living and connecting dining room, a fully equipped eat in kitchen with cherry cabinets, maple butcher block counter tops, high tech appliances, all tiled showers, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer. Simply and tastefully furnished with oriental rugs and antique furniture, this comfortably fitted home with all its amenities also offers convenient and ample off street parking. This mainstream Main Street home affords you the ability to park your vehicle for the duration of your stay unless you were to drive the fifteen minutes to Whiteface Mountain or other nearby attractions. Its attached one bedroom apartment (VRBO #652809) can also be rented separately or with the Main house to sleep an additional 4 guests.

Come visit in this unique situation and quaint setting in the heart of downtown Lake Placid, a great getaway for up to 14 people and newly built for your comfort, convenience and enjoyment. Location, Location, Location!

About Madeleine Killeen

As antiques dealers for over 30 years, we have applied our many years of experience in the decorative arts into restoring and decorating what was once and is again an elegant Mission style home. We have retained what we could of the home's honesty but have modernized it for today's market and livability. As a result, once referred to as the 'Bumstead House' and serving as an Inn for many of the 1930's Olympic participants, Shore Crest has retained its original wood paneling, hardwood floors, and stone fireplace, and has been lovingly restored to its old glory.

Madeleine Killeen purchased this house in 2006

Why Madeleine Killeen chose Lake Placid

We had been vacationing in Lake Placid for years and thought that the best of all worlds could be had in the purchase of a home that was as convenient to all amenities as this one was and is.

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Shore Crest with our extended family. The house is clean and beautiful and the proximity to the town is perfect.

We look forward to making our stay at Shore Crest an annual tradition.

Our "home" when in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

My group (10 adults) have stayed at Shore Crest nearly 10 times over the last 5 years. For a large group, you cannot find a better place to stay. Beautiful accommodations and perfect location. It is the best of both worlds. You get the real "ADK Feel" when in the home, but you are right in the heart of LP, so everything is within walking distance.

The owners are responsive, friendly, and very laid back. During our 10 stays, we have only ever had one issue, and it was our fault (locked ourselves out of one of the rooms. The owners had it resolved in 10 mins.

We never consider staying anywhere else, and nor should you.

Perfect Home, Warm and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this a home with a perfect location, It was so warm and inviting that we didn't want to leave it. Everything was better than we have experienced in the past and the pictures do not do justice. We are planning on coming back during different seasons and know we can count on a great stay.

Beautiful home with a view of the lake

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all. 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and a half bath on the 1st floor. Everything about the house is wonderful. All the amenities even a washer and dryer. Everyone loved it and the owner was extremely communicative. Would not hesitate to rent again if I am ever up in the area. Plenty of parking and all the amenities you can think of. Thank you again

Beautifully maintained, spacious house in LP!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained, spacious house in the heart of Lake Placid accommodating my immediate and extended family. The house was stocked with everything basic and more and was one of the best we have rented . Each bedroom suite was like its own tight unit with private bathrooms which was a big plus for several guests who didnt know each other well and didnt have to share. The master bedroom was practically its own apartment. Best of all was the view from the front porch. We loved the great location of the house which was convenient and quiet, a big plus for us. The handicap accessible entryway, wide doorways and first floor bedroom accommodated our aging grandparents. We can't wait to return to Shore Crest for our next visit to Lake Placid. Thank you so much David for your well spoken history of the house and its early Olympic roots.
