Lenny Giles purchased this house in 1997

Why Lenny Giles chose Lake Placid

The Whiteface Club and Resort offered more than what we were looking for in a vacation home. It is on the shore of Lake Placid with a beach and marina and restaurant. It has an 18 hole beautiful Championship golf course with another restaurant at the 18th green. There is also a 5 star restaurant at the Lake Placid Lodge adjacent to the golf course. Then there are the home owners, a hardy group, who enjoy all the outdoor activities, I was totally impressed and have a hard time trying to keep up with them.

What makes this house unique

Besides the above, the town of Lake Placid and surrounding area offers so much. Many and varied restaurants; night life; shopping; Olympic venues; hiking; camping; etc: you can even relax by the babbling brook at the house if you get too tired. For 2015, twenty seasonal marina beach badges are included with the rental at no additional fee. Golf and Tennis packages also available. Also all queen bedrooms have air conditioning a rarity in Lake Placid and each has flat screen televisions.

Wonderful house for a large group! Great location, comfortable, very clean. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Needed a property with 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms....hard to find and usually disappointed with the results but this house is PERFECT for large groups of friends or families......very comfortable and very clean .....bedroom and bath arrangement is ideal. Lenny, the owner, is very responsive...I had concerns about bed and bath arrangement and he sent floor plan within a few hours or less! Same responsiveness on any question/concern. Every couple in the group was delighted with the house and its location.

Absolutely beautiful large fully furnished and decorated home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four families with elementary aged kids loved our week together in this home. The kids loved the creek and game room. Everyone loved the double kitchens, spacious living areas and hot tubs. The marina is beautiful, has a sandy beach, restaurant and pretty views. It’s only a 3 minute walk from the house. The kitchens have everything you need, don’t bother to pack pots and knives. It felt like we were at a friend’s home. At the end of the trip we unanimously decided to come back!

Everything Our Family Had Anticipated,,,and More!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandbrook Duo home at Lake Placid could not have been more perfect for our Family Reunion. We had all 17 individuals and 3 generations of our more immediate family present, and were joined for the final 2 days by 2 other family members. Everyone had an incredible time, from use of the amazing amenities in the home (including 10 well-appointed bedrooms with private bathrooms, 2 fully-equipped kitchens where each family took turns preparing meals for everyone, a dining room and great room that held all of us, and 2 game rooms and hot tubs - our grandchildren were ecstatic!), to the lovely setting on a babbling brook and nearby lakeside beach (with kayaks) and golf course. It was often hard to decide whether to venture out on nearby Adirondack hikes/field trips or just enjoy everything this beautiful home and resort area had to offer.

Thanks so much for your careful attention to every possible detail and for allowing this family event to be one to be remembered and cherished for the rest of our lives.

Sandbrook Duo: Could not have been better...

  • 5 of 5

We were exceptionally pleased with everything about the week. Lenny worked with us to modify the cleaning schedule and extend the family reunion by a day, and was very communicative throughout the period leading up to our reunion and during the week (one of the bedroom air conditioners broke and he was immediately on top of it). As for the property itself, it surpassed all expectations and easily accommodated all 18 of us; a beautiful home in a beautiful part of the Country. We've been doing annual family reunions for 23 years and this was amongst the very finest rental homes in which we've stayed. My highest recommendation.
