We were in the area and needed a room last minute so I looked on the map and saw Sands on Golden Lake, for a reasonable price and booked it. Our room was lovely and light and spacious. No air conditioning but there was a nice breeze in through the sliding glass doors and a fan once the door was... More

We live in the area and going to the Sands is a weekly event. We are known. They always find us a table and we always tip well. Last we took our visiting niece and her new husband there for a celebratory meal. We arrived by boat. Docked and enjoyed a lovely meal as the sun set. Our favourite waitress,... More

Spent overnight at the Inn with 7 others. Renovated rooms were very nice. The honeymoon suite, which was the last available room, was very impressive. The un-renovated rooms had a little to be desired, although I'm sure that they are now fully renovated. Service at the restaurant, and food was also very good. Great place to spend the night after...

Stayed for 2 nights in July at the beginning of a road trip with my daughter. We were in room 18 which was beautifully renovated and had a lovely view of the lake. Sunsets were spectacular! Everyone that worked there was so friendly and helpful and the owners were very gracious. Dinner in the restaurant was great. My daughter said... More

We stayed three nights in a lake facing queen, (no air conditioning) room on a hot weekend. We were a little warm but mostly comfortable. Appreciated the frig, the balcony, the cleanliness, the amount of space. Shortcomings - rip in balcony door screen and gap under the screen door. Also, little room to hang clothes since frig occupied same space... More

My husband and I looked for a hotel close to Camp Red Pine on Golden Lake when we visited our children and grandchildren while they attended the camp. We found the Sands on Golden Lake on line and enjoyed the setting. We booked our room on line and when we arrived were very happy that we chose this hotel. We... More

My husband and I visited with our 2 young children and we had a wonderful time at the Sands. The staff was friendly, welcoming and very hospitable. Our room was clean and spacious, with a beautiful view of Golden Lake from the balcony. We swam in the lake, relaxed in the sun and had a delicious meal in the restaurant.... More

My husband and I stayed at Sands for two nights and had a wonderful time. Very relaxing, comfy beds and the food was amazing in the restaurant over looking the lake. I had the fish and chips first night which was great but the ravioli the second night was absolutely wonderful, stuffed with mushrooms in a creamy sauce with basil.... More

It was a rainy day so we decided to have dinner at The Sands. Both my wife and I had fish and chips. My meal was excellent. My wife on the other hand experienced one piece of under cooked fish. Our waiter was efficient and attentive to our needs. Being new to the area this has only been our second... More
