LAKE PLACID HILLCREST HAVEN (SLEEPS 10-14)

Lake Placid House Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms - 4 Baths - (Sleeps 10-14)

This unique Lake Placid, Adirondack style home was built in 1915 as a year round home for a well-to-do family and shows it in the detail and quality of construction. Over the years it has been thoughtfully maintained and upgraded, while retaining virtually all of the original charm of a house of that era. As with many homes built in the early 1900's, it has many little nooks and cranies where you can grab some quiet time with a good book. It was purpose built to be a large comfortable Adirondack home for a large family and still is.

Details such as beautiful wood railings, built in book cases, a beamed ceiling in dining and living rooms and even skeleton key locks that work on many doors are all part of the experience. At the same time, upgrades, such as a new, large master bath and enclosing the wrap around rear porch have expanded the living area and comfort of this home. Your favorite quiet breakfast spot will be in a corner of that porch surrounded by windows.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Perfect for large group

  • Submitted: Feb 14, 2010

I rented this wonderful house for a skiing weekend for a group of co-workers. The house is "old" but in a really good way. Very nicely kept up with everything in good working condition. The house has eight (8) bedrooms scattered across three floors (which is perfect if some in the group want to turn in early while the others stay up). One of the bedrooms though is only for very small children (as the description of the house indicates). One of the bedrooms does have a futon as the bed. That wasn't a problem for us although a dayriser would be a better choice. The bedrooms vary is size but all (except as noted) were of good size. The kitchen and living areas are nice. The dining table will sit 8-10 comfortably so if you fill the house to its maximum occupancy (14) understand that you may need to adapt. Linens and towels were supplied. Hot water and pressure for the showers were good.

The owner was honest and very easy to deal with.

The house is close to the main thoroughfare and has a driveway suitable for 5-6 cars. A hot tub on the back porch is a few steps away from the back door and we used it both nights. I was able to grill up some steaks for the group on the propane barbecue grill that does function during the winter. The house also has free high-speed wireless. Cable TV is also present.

I would definitely recommend this house for reasonably large groups.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate reviews because they help futrue renters to know that the house is as we present it in our listing. It's large, well kept and charming in a way that only a big old house can be. We have a full time caretaker who gets the credit for having everything working as it should be.

Super convenient

Short drive to Whiteface. Short walk to downtown Lake Placid. I suspect it's a short drive to Adirondacks High Peaks as well, though with all the skiing we never made it there.

The house is amazing! The pictures here really don't do it justice. We were a fairly large group of fourteen people and it never felt crowded. An outdoor hot tub was a huge bonus!

Great Stay in Lake Placid!

I recently stayed at Hillcrest Haven and had a great time! Some friends and I do a yearly trip to Lake Placid to go skiing at Whiteface. This was the first time we stayed in this house and it was the best one we've been in! The pictures don't do it justice; the house is really great. The location was perfect; walkable to the town/shops/restaurants/bars and close to the shuttle pick up for Whiteface (which was perfect for those who wanted to sleep in). The house was very clean and well-maintained. Bob was very responsive to all of my questions and concerns prior to our stay. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. Thanks for a great vacation!!

An excellent place to stay in Lake Placid for families and groups

Our party of 10 family members were thrilled with Hillcrest Haven upon arrival and several weeks after our stay, are still talking about how nice the house is. The listing in VRBO for this property is understated. We found the bedrooms comfortable; full bathrooms, including one on the third floor, perfectly placed. The charming living spaces provide room for all to gather and privacy for when being to yourself is what you want. If you're looking for a property in town, close to everything and with all creature comforts included, Hillcrest Haven is a terrific choice.

Car: recommended

The location (one short block from the center of town - short walk to everything) is ideal for large groups and families in particular. At least a dozen restaurants, many shops, movie theater, Olympic skating arena, Mirror Lake and more are literally within a five minute walk. The kids can have as much freedom as you wish. The beautiful Lake Placid Resort golf course (45 holes with an outstanding links layout) is a three minute drive and great tee times are always available. Likewise, Whiteface ski area, Olympic ski jumping, bobsledding, Lake Placid Horse Show grounds and cross country venues are all within 5-15 minutes.
