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

I am from NYC so the room was not up to my personal standards. The owner did refund my money so for that I was grateful. There is a short walking distance to the lake which is very clean. The people on the lake were friendly.

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

I travel a LOT and have had my share of good and bad experiences with hotels. I have to say that Bob goes above and beyond to make sure your stay at Golden Sands is smooth and enjoyable. The customer service is exemplary and comparable to the type of attention you receive at the Conrad Hilton in Tribeca. When my... More

The location is great, the view is spectacular! Not expensive, the rooms are small but great for us as we just sleep in them. We go to local restaurants every night for dinner, but they do have grills available. Also a refrigerator and microwave in all rooms. We have stayed here 4 times and wil be going again this summer.... More

We stayed for 4 nights and it was nice to be on the lake. The hotel itself was more like rooms that felt like cabins. There was a small bathroom, refrigerator and microwave. We had adjoining rooms with family members which made it nice to visit together. There is no pool as is in the picture, I'm not sure why... More

We loved our stay here with Bob and his staff! Super quiet and quaint beach. Cute little rooms. Loved it. Will definately go back! Lake George itself is very touristy and much like Niagara falls but if you get out of town far enough it is like heaven on earth!
