Beautiful setting on the shores of Golden Lake, lovely western exposure for setting sun, even in chilly April ! Very nice staff, generous room size (Room #3), pleasant dining room, easy parking... not much to fuss about really. But... room could use more clothes hangars, more lighting, more bathroom counter space, a peephole in the door, security door lock. The... More

Huuuuuge kudos to the staff for the amazing brunch put on April 5th! If that is anything like the ones on Sunday during the summer you can count me in! Smorgasbord of all your typical hot breakfast items, made to order omelette station, and tasty fresh pastries. This place is right on Hwy 60 if you're heading to Barry's Bay... More

The staff at the Sands created an atmosphere of Love and Kindness. We stayed in the 'Sweetheart' suite..a must for a romantic weekend. The dining room decorated, the food tasty and presentation excellent...the chef never disappoints. The Sands is charmed by the owners, Jeff and Jeff, with hospitality, management and professional approach. A fun time on the 60.

Travelled to golden lake for a winter long weekend with a few families. Rented three cottages side by side. They were basic but clean and easy to settle into. Great to have full kitchens for meals but also the choice to eat at the restaurant on site. Went Snowshoeing, cross country skiing and tobogganing for the little ones right beside... More

A beautiful stay..lakeside lounging at it's best. On-site restaurant a bonus as nearest town is a bit of a drive. Do discover one of Ontario's day-only Provincial Parks....the staff will direct you to a pristine and deserted piece of nature. Very large and comfortable room....the nautical colors gave it a "Maine" ambiance. Our one critique was the bathroom....very small and... More

At glance the rooms are beautifully renovated. However the cleaning staff not so good. There is mould around the shower and sink area. We stayed 3 nights. We missed the opportunity for fresh linens as I was napping with my infant, not a problem, our fault (housekeeping only available until 2:30). The next day housekeeping made beds and refreshed towel... More

A beautiful all season vacation resort. The room was spacious and clean. The restaurant food and dinning was superb. The view of the lake ans surroundings was breath taking. The 2 owners (Jeff & Jeff) are the greatest! I would recommend this resort to anyone!

The staff were professional and welcoming while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere which suits the location. The wedding venue was beautiful, even with only 20 guests it never felt too big. The staff were very helpful when it came to setting up the basics of the venue and they even offered to let us use a few decorations they have accumulated... More
