The beach view is this places best asset. To say that the place needs a complete update is an understatement. We stayed in the upper building and these rooms are just so old. There was an ant problem as well as spiders that could have been out of a sci-fi movie. A more thorough cleaning needs to be done each... More

Nice beach and lake with sand. Room a bit small but expected and ok. There was carpenter ants in the bathroom on the floor. Kayaks available. Deck very nice. Quiet place close to everyrthing by car. Arrived at 1h30 and room was ready. Loved our two nights stay. With kids aged 2 and 6 years old. Wifi was ok on... More

My girlfriend and I took our first trip to lake george together and stayed here. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful. The private beach was not crowded, considering we went on 4th of July weekend. Great views of the lake from the room, and kayaks were provided as well. Would definitely stay here again

My boyfriend and I just visited on July 31. We were pleasantly surprised! We took advantage of the private beach and free kayaking. The rooms were clean and we were not expecting to have two rooms. We will be returning with our children!

I booked 2 month before our stay and wanted a specific room...number 18....from the resort map online it was the closest to the lake so I assumed the best view ....We weren't disappointed! Room 18 has a spectacular view of the lake and the mountains all while we sat on our own deck enjoying our meals or cocktails....our room itself... More

We booked at the last minute and got a good Expedia price, so we had low expectations and were weary of the negative comments. I was entertained and suspicious that so many of the reviews specifically mentioned Bob and joked with my friend that even if the place is terrible, Bob will be great! The room was clean and pleasant.... More

We stayed at Golden Sands just before July 4th this year and we love it. We have been going here for 5 years now and it's always wonderful. You just can't beat the view when you walk out of your room! We always stay in connecting rooms down by the lake. It's a small property but clean and friendly. You... More

We had a nice stay. Very beautiful beach area. Kayaks were fun but definitely not new. Nice fire pit. Played ping pong and threw a football around on the beach. The owner (Bob) was very nice, helpful and accommodating. Location was great. Short car ride to village. Horseback riding a short walk away. 15 minutes to Adirondack Extreme Adventure (awesome...

This is a very nice place with great private beach. We stayed here for only 1 night but it was so windy and we could not do kayaking but the owner Bob is a very very nice person and allowed us to do so next day. We had kids and he was so understanding person. The place is nice and... More
