My husband took me to one of the Sandy Cove program weekends, after I had raved about the location and the staff when I helped with a Moms In Prayer, International Conference held there in 2012. We were not disappointed. Booked a parlor room, which had a beautiful view of the bay. Food was excellent, fresh and well prepared- and... More

Stayed with my husband and teens for two nights. We did the "personal retreat" option and stayed in a deluxe suite. Although the ceiling could probably have used a good paint job and the curtains could be updated, the suite was big and perfect for what we needed. The mattress was very soft and comfortable and the bedding was very... More

A great place to disconnect and reconnect all at the same time! Kind staff, clean and comfortable accommodations, near to great restaurants, and lots of space to simply unwind. Time/money well spent! Would go back in a heartbeat! Perfect for those who especially need a place to simply let God minister to them.

Our family has been going to Sandy Cove since the 90's. We love the variety of family and couple activities for Christian families. Currently we are into the personal retreat phase of our lives. My wife and I go to Sandy Cove to have some restful, quiet time with the Lord. The room rates are awesome and includes a great... More

We only spent one night to celebrate our anniversary, and wished we had booked for a longer stay! We had the Chapel room facing the Chesapeake Bay. The room was very clean, the bed was oh so comfortable, and we even had a desk and table and chairs along with a lounge chair, which I promptly faced toward the bay.... More

We have been vacationing here for 27 years because we've found it to be the best vacation ever. Once you arrive, no need to get in your car until the day you leave. I love the water aerobics opportunity in the pool each morning - the exercise, the sunrise, the music are such a great combination. Food options are perfect,... More

I went for the Power Boost Weekend. No speakers, but still so many wonderful things to do and absolute gorgeous views. I spent the weekend alone. Relaxing, enjoying the views and the wholesome food served buffet style. My room was clean, no television, but free WIFI signal. The staff is friendly, always smiling, and loves the Lord.

Our family enjoyed returning to Sandy Cove after being away for over 8 years. The speakers are still wonderful and ours was very personal and opened new insights for me. There are many action packed things to do like parasailing, riding on a pontoon boat on the Chesapeake and having fun in a zorb. We also enjoyed the Big nerf... More
