Located on the shore of Golden Lake, Ontario, we found this hotel comfortable with a good aspect on the water. The bed was very comfortable & the hosts friendly. This place could be improved with a little TLC however, but otherwise an enjoyable stay. The attached restaurant serves a good selection of meals but we could have done without the... More

We visited the Sands on Golden Lake for my birthday, and we had a great time there. Luckily we had made a reservation as it was very crowded on a Friday evening, when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that they had live music, a duo playing and singing. We were promptly seated at a lake view table. Most tables... More

We googled it one day before our 2 day holidays and we were blessed to find this spot. Close to our home(Ottawa). We booked a 3-bedroom chalet. The Golden lake view from the deck, from dining table, walking along its cleanest sandy beach, boating,canoeing and camp fire at night. This was our best vacation discovery so far.

We recently stayed one night at this hotel and were very impressed. Our room was clean, spacious, recently renovated and very comfortable. We had a very nice balcony facing the beach. Any requests that we made were taken care of immediately. The beach is well maintained with soft sand and beach loungers available. The lake itself was warm, clear and... More

We stayed at this wonderful resort and loved the location, people, food, resort and proprietor Jeff. From the welcome we received to the service it was great. So much so we are booked in for the next couple of years. Bravo and thanks.

We had been staying here when the old owners had it. Leo and his wife. We've always had a great time every time we have come. Rooms are really nice, and the cottages are great! Right on the lake as well, just be careful of the parasite that gives you swimmers itch! Some of my best vacation memories are here.

A year later and still a fabulous place to visit. The rooms are lovely, the staff beyond helpful, and the food is delicious! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit to the Sands on Golden Lake! Got to enjoy the water this time as well. A little cool, but lovely and clean.

We loved The Sands on Golden Lake! We enjoyed a long weekend at The Sands for a family wedding and couldn't be more grateful that the bride and groom chose this place. We stayed in the "honeymoon suite" the first two nights and absolutely loved the view from the balcony and the large tub in the room. As soon as... More
