Whether summer or winter their are plenty of activities. As a site for Ironman USA town is training friendly, runners, cyclists and swimmers are abundant, so why not join in.

Lenny Giles purchased this house in 1997
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.
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.
We were a group of 20, 25-30-year-olds that stayed at Sandbrook Duo for New Year's Eve. When making the reservation, Lenny was knowledgeable, friendly and always available. The house is actually two condos that have been combined to create a large, cozy home in a beautiful complex. The two kitchens were perfect for entertaining large groups. The bedrooms upstairs offered privacy and there was ample, comfortable sleeping space for all 20 of us. Sandbrook Duo is close to town, and only a 20 minute drive to Whiteface Mountain (it says it's about a 40 minute drive on Google maps). A group of us who didn't ski or snowboard one day took a walk from the house to find gorgeous scenery, and the town of Lake Placid is perfect for shopping, ice skating, eating and drinking! Codes on the main doors made for easy entry (as opposed to only a few people having a key) and there was sufficient parking for 6 cars. There were plenty of garbage bags, paper towels and coffee when we arrived. Any problem we had, Lenny was only a phone call away. The only two suggestions I have would be for easier hot tub maintenance and larger shower towels. Sandbrook Duo still deserves 5 stars! Highly recommended for a large group who wants to be active and exploratory and also entertain indoors. Thanks, Lenny!
The house offers nice accommodation in a convenient location. Everything was prepared for our arrival and stay.
It was a really nice stay. Lanny is a great owner who takes very good care of the property and is very accommodating. I highly recommend this place.
Our family of 17 loved spending the week at Sandbrook Duo. The house was well equipped with everything we needed including two washing machines and two hot tubs! We used the four kayaks everyday on the lake, and some played golf on the course. We enjoyed sitting out on the decks or in the hot tub by the babbling creek. Definitely recommend!
We were looking for a large house for our family of 20 people. It was the perfect set up with six bedrooms with their own bathrooms for adults, and four bedrooms with twins for kids. The house has plenty of room - we used the living room to gather and enjoyed having dinner at the two big tables. There are so many great assets to the house - two grills, plenty of towels, games for the kids, space to spread out, four kayaks and a SUP paddle and a very helpful owner. We loved the town of Lake Placid and the house itself could not be any more perfect.
We have been trying to plan a ski trip with our children and grandchildren in a space that would fit all of us comfortably with plenty of room for the little ones to play and stretch out. This vacation home has it all. After being out in the cold skiing all day, the hot tubs are a perfect place to unwind and relax. The 2 kitchens are great for getting meals prepared quickly with both ovens going at once. The spacious table in the dining room fit all of us perfectly to gather, converse and just enjoy being together. We are planning to go back next year and will definitely rent this home again. It is perfect in every way. Thank you Lenny and Pat for making your home our home for this wonderful week that we shared with our family. See you again next year!
