Lake Placid Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The apartment was completely renovated in 2009. You enter into a ceramic tile mudroom and the living room has hardwood floors. There are 5 windows in the living room and entrance. Lots of natural LIGHT! Pine ceilings throughout the entire apartment. Brand new kitchen with granite countertops and new appliances. Bedroom has a queen bed and there is a very comfortable sleigh bed futon in the living room (double). 42' flat screen HDTV in the living room and a 22' flat screen in the bedroom. Digital cable with lots of HD channels and Wi-Fi. Very comfortable layout and perfect for 2-4 people. Ideal for a small family looking to get away but have the convenience of a kitchen and multiple televisions. Walk out to views of the Adirondacks and mirror lake.

The apartment can be rented by itself or can be rented along with the main house. Ideal for in-laws. Main house can be viewed on VRBO as well listing number is 273172.

Why Christopher chose Lake Placid

We fell in love with lake placid in the mid 90's and have been vacationing here ever since. We bought the house in 2009 and completely renovated the house and apartment. It is our favorite place in the whole world!

What makes this apartment unique

You can walk to main street in under 3 minutes. We are basically parallel to the heart of town. The Olympic center is a 5 minute walk. Convenience!!!!!!!

CanAm Hockey Camp

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay! This apartment was perfect for our stay while my son was at hockey camp in Lake Placid. Close to the Mirror Lake walking trail, shopping, restaurants, the Olympic Center, and all the other activities that the Lake Placid area has to offer. Chris is great and answered all my questions and concerns quickly. Would definitely stay here again next summer!

Great Get -A- Way!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well appointed, comfortable, and everything we could ask for. As we are getting closer to retirement we ESPECIALLY appreciated the fact that we did not have to climb up a load of steps. Even though the add states that it is a basement apartment, it is actually more of a ground floor apartment. You can park the car for your stay and walk to almost everything in the Lake Placid area. If you like to travel, it's a relatively short drive to Burlington, Waterbury, and Montpelier Vermont. Located on a quiet residential street with every and any accommodation you could ask for. Makes for a perfect romantic get -a - way. We will definitely return.

Ironman 2012

  • 5 of 5

My teammate and I stayed here for a long weekend during July for Ironman 2012. Apartment is exactly as depicted in the pictures, brand new and very clean. Great for a couple or small family. The location is perfect, close to Mirror Lake, Olympic Center, and the heart of town. We were able to walk everywhere that weekend.

Chris was a fantastic landlord, responded to every email/text right away, and returned the security deposit in a timely mannor.

I would most certainly stay here again!

Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

I was in Lake Placid for an event at the Olympic Training Center. I wanted to be within walking distance of the OTC and downtown. The Hillcrest Hideaway apartment was absolutely perfect! I was a 5 minute walk from my venue, could walk to everything downtown, and had tremendous access to the scenic walk around Mirror Lake. The appartment is perfectly located for any individual, couple, or small family who wants to be close to town. It was well furnished and clean, and had good internet access, everything you needed in the kitchen, a very nice stackable washer and dryer, and convenient off-street parking behind the main house. Chris, the owner, was great to work with and responded quickly to all of my questions. The only time I used my car was to go to the grocery store, and as one of the other reviewers stated, I probably could have walked there too. I really enjoyed my stay in the Hillcrest Hideaway apartment, and look forward to my next visit.

My husband, two kids and I stayed in the apt. for about a week. It was a perfect place to lay our heads after a busy day of hiking, etc. The location to town was the best part. We walked everywhere (beach, brewery, Olympic complex, movies, dinner, breakfast). Chris was also very good in responding asap to any question we had. It was just nice to have more room than a hotel room plus a kitchen. Key with 2 small kids. Great price too.

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

What can say!? This place made my summer amazing! Chris was literally the best land lord I've ever had. He made sure I was taken care of and had a comfortable stay. The location is gorgeous. The house is beautiful with all the recent remodeling and has that "at home" warmth to it. Also, it is walking distance from Main St. which is a major atraction to tourist. Hands down, best apartment and living experience I've ever had.
