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.

Great House for Training Camp

  • 5 of 5

The Hillcrest Property was a wonderful home for us to do some Ironman Training. It was very close and convenient to everything in town as well as the lake for swimming. We enjoyed a great week of training with much convenience for all aspects. The location was great, clean and the detached garage made a great place for storing bikes and so forth. Washer and Dryer was a great asset as well.

The perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this house during the Lake Placid Half Marathon weekend and could not have chosen a more perfect house to rent. The location is just two blocks from the Main Street, steps from Starbucks, restaurants, shops and bars. The house itself was very comfortable for six adults and one dog. The kitchen was large enough and fully stocked, for us to cook a big pasta meal in the night before my run. MaryKaye was very accommodating and I have already recommended this house to friends. We will definitely stay here next time were visiting Lake Placid!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

It was a perfect weather week and my sisters and I got to spend alot of time catching up and exploring the area. It was convenient to many things. While the house was nice, there were some things that really needed maintenance that should have been fixed before guests stay again. I left a list when I left. The bedding/pillows were stained and the curtains very sheer for privacy. Faucet wobbly, toilet tank ran, shower was mildewy, light bulbs out and dresser drawers in upstairs queen room couldn't be used as the bottom was falling out of one and the drawer track was broken on another. Street gets much traffic from hotel at top of hill and cars go way to fast. Be careful when walking.

Just ok

  • 2 of 5

First time in Lake Placid and was looking forward to some great family time. We accomplished that. However, this location was only average. All the floors and doors squeaked, there were no blinds on any window. Curtains were shear. No instructions for remotes and if you do not watch over the dryer you can start a fire as it constantly ran and the clothes really heated up. Do not leave this unattended. No one emailed, call or even came by to see if we arrived and if there was any thing we needed. There were no blankets and the bedding covers were stained. Nor has anyone contacted us since we left. In addition no info about the town.

I have rented several properties over various states and if we return to Placid I will look for something else.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. Glad you were able to reconnect and have some family time. Sorry you did not find the white binder with local activities which was located on a shelf under the table in the sun room. Most use their phones to get last minute details. Sorry too that you did not find the blankets in the upstairs closet. Generally in the Summer they are not needed. Thanks for the dryer information, the vent was looked at and is working much better. Since this house has been occupied non stop since early June, sometimes we have to rely on our guests.
