About Lenny Giles

Lenny and Pat are New Jersey Shore residents. At home activities include running ( 4 marathons, Lenny only has 3), cycling and swimming ( Lenny has some mini tri's and mile swims), golf and working out. Other sporting focus is skiing , downhill and cross-country. Also just like being outside.

Lenny Giles purchased this house in 1997

Why Lenny Giles chose Adirondacks

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.

Great House for a Large Crowd

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, spacious, and very well stocked. Great location for skiing and close to town. I have rented many times on VRBO and have often had to bring our own TP, PT, wine glasses and decent knives for chopping and dicing. This house had everything we needed. The two kitchens worked great for our large crowd and our six families all slept well in the comfortable beds. We will definitely be going back. The only thing missing was a guestbook to sign! Thanks Lenny!

What a Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th year at Sandbrook Duo and still loving it!!! Our group of 20 adult friends gather in this house to share laughs and love of outdoors each year on MLK weekend. The owner (Lenny) continues to update and make improvements for the convenience and comfort of his guests. He is easy to work with and responds quickly to inquiries and suggestions. The spaces allow for all to either gather or separate as needed. 2 kitchens make it very easy to put out fabulous meals without the non-workers impediment. Lots of seats for dining together without being crowded. Beds are very comfortable and the rooms well decorated without being "fussy". Thank you Lenny for another great stay!

Perfect house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

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!
