Rented a campsite for the weekend with the family. It was my, husband, son, dtr-inlaw, three grandsons and daughter. This was the first time for all except my dtr and myself. We had been to Sandy Cove for Ministry Retreats. We were in the Pioneer camp grounds. This place is absolutely the best. The grounds are very nice. So much... More

I've been to Sandy Cove for many years since I was a toddler, and even though I'm a grown adult, I still love going back. You feel relaxed as soon as you enter the place. The rooms are nice with a/c, multiple beds (twin and queen) so you don't need to share, a standard bathroom, and some have beautiful views... More

First let me start by saying SandyCove is a great place to bring the kids. It's large grounds beautiful scenery and many activities to do will keep them happy and busy for hours. The staff is great and the food is good. They have each summer session down for 5 days (too short).Sadly I feel the worship music needs variety... More

We used to stay in the campground for Homeschool Week (the first family camp week each summer) but this year we stayed in the lodge. Oh my! Now THAT was vacation! I didn't have to cook or wash dishes! I didn't have to handle linens! All-you-can-eat buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. An ice cream shop with yummy concoctions on... More

I wish I could bring everyone home with me. For some reason the staff declined my offer. It was probably the mention of eight kids that put them off. The view rom our room was breathtaking. The room was spacious and clean and the beds were really comfortable. We have serious food allergies and the food service staff were incredible... More

Now I am rating this only on the amenities of Sandy. The rooms were so well kept and clean. I have come to Sandy for several pastors conferences and it is still on the same level professionalism. The room keepers were so extremely kind and nice and patient and understanding. I trusted them 100% with all of my belongings. The... More

This place is absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a place to call home away from home and have a wonderful time with family and friends, this is it! I was blown away how friendly and kind and orderly and new and clean everything was. I will come back again and again and again.

I recommend this place 110%! My husband and I took this trip for our 7 year wedding anniversary. We stayed from Thursday - Sunday and they even allow you to stay and enjoy the activities all day even after you check out. They have shower rooms and extra accommodations for that extra time if you choose to use it. We... More

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.
