Mackay Estate Dairyman's Cottage is a historic home located at East Hills in Nassau County, New York, USA, designed about 1902 by noted architects Warren and Wetmore in an eclectic style. It is a 2 12-story frame house with a brick first floor set on a rubble base. It features a steep flaring roof, small dormers with steep roofs, deep projecting eaves, and rows of rectangular windows with flat brackets, giving it a strong Japanese feel. The house was originally a component of Clarence Mackay's Harbor Hill Estate.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.[1] It is one of three remaining buildings listed at that time; the others are the Mackay Estate Gate Lodge and Mackay Estate Water Tower.
