What a WONDERFUL Christian resort full of the LOVE of Jesus! I had a spacious beautiful and clean suite. The food was plentiful and excellent. The staff was very accommodating and the fellowship was top notch! I will certainly return with my family soon!

We had a wonderful day at Sandy Cove! Mom & I brought two ladies from our church with us to experience a luncheon at this beautiful place. This was the first time for both ladies and both said they had a great time. The food was good, the staff is so nice, friendly, & helpful. Our program was very uplifting.... More

Been coming here for many years but the condition of the rooms is declining. The dinners used to be excellent, but the dinner Sunday night was atrocious. Barely cooked chicken, soggy meatloaf. The only good thing was the salad. That's why we only ate salad for dinner. Several people sent their chicken back to be fully cooked and never received... More

I can't say enough about how Sandy Cove has blessed our family over the years. We came to this retreat for family camp as our boys were growing up since back in the 1990s every year for family camp. Then we moved to Florida when we became empty nested. We started to come back to Sandy Cove with the grandchildren... More

I LOVE SANDY COVE! I visit at least 3x a year. If you enjoy traditional decor, ambience and friendly service. This place is for you. Perfect for those who need a break from the stresses of life. Life changing for those transitioning from divorce, grief, or any life altering experience. The grounds are breathtaking and the food is exceptionally tasty.... More

"Exceedingly abundantly more than I could ask or imagine!" The venue, the food, the atmosphere, the setting, the tranquility were above my expectations! The mini-sabbatical is a quiet, personal time allowing intimate connection with God!
