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 Hillcrest

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.

Very comfortable and clean. Close walk to downtown Lake Placid. Worked out great with elderly parents in bedroom downstairs and full bath. Stairs a little tricky but fine for us and our older kids.

Great Home! Great Location!

We stayed the weekend after Thanksgiving with my mom and another couple. Ample bedrooms and bathrooms for all 5 grown adults. The house was very clean and the booking process was easy. Thanks for a great visit! We love Lake Placid!

Great town, great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Everything was simple and easy, the way we like to travel. House was very clean. All rooms were exactly as depicted in the photos. I called MaryKaye with a question, and she was very nice to deal with. Will look to stay here again in the future. It is close to Main Street and Mirror Lake; we walked everywhere and left our car here (The hill was nice exercise at the end of our day). Walking down the hill into the fog that had consumed the lake and town in the early morning, while the trees were in peak foliage and the sun shone above the fog was unbelievably beautiful. Very memorable.

Worked perfectly

  • 4 of 5

This is a clean, comfortable house and is nicely furnished and well equipped. It is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood but only a short (but steep) walking distance to Main Street in Lake Placid with its many dining options. It made a great base for a few days of hiking in the Adirondacks and we enjoyed coming back to the house for an aperitif on the deck before heading out for dinner. We also enjoyed the cozy little breakfast nook off the kitchen. I would highly recommend this property. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that there are a few items that could do with a bit of upkeep but these in no way marred our enjoyment of this property.
