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.

Great, large, well-maintained property set in a super resort!

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen of my family members stayed in this house for a week accompanied by six others who stayed in other places for less than the full week. We all prepared and ate at the property, easily accomodated in the seats-20 dining room. The Whiteface Club, where the unit is located is a wonderfully landscaped and maintained property. Although we didn’t use the golf course or restaurants they certainly appeared to be fine facilities.

The supplied kayaks and SUP were good quality stored on racks convenient to the water. The beach area was fun for the kids and delightful places for some of our adults to sun and read.

We drove the road to the top of Whiteface, hiked trails and canoed at the VIC at Paul Smiths, hiked to Avalanche Lake from the Adirondack Loj, visited THE Wild Center in Tupper Lake, rode the bobsled at the Olympic Center and did lots of other things.

Great property, great location and wonderful activities!

Great stay at Lake Placid in a wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we could have hoped for. We had a family of 18 and never once did it feel like we were in too of each other. Plenty of room and entertainment options for all ages. The beach access, kayaks and Stand up paddle boards were fantastic to take advantage of as well. Great stay and would definitely book it again.
