This place is totally the opposite of whatever Lake George represents. I, unfortunately, have nothing good to say about this place. This last Labor Day Weekend was the 5th time for us on Lake George. We have stayed other places (twice on Trout House up north and twice on Diamond Cove which is actually just next door to Golden Sands).... More

Black mold all over the leaky roof ceiling in room 15 and adjoining rooms are probably well affected .You were warned .. Extremely unhealthy .It"s not worth the half price they offer for this room when all the others are filled up !

First, the name is quite deceiving. Its a motel not a "resort". Rooms were rustic, but clean. Microwave, and mini fridge included. Bathroom is small and offers 2 bars a soap. Cabin-like decorated. They had tables in front of the room, as well as bbq and picnic tables. We went to Walmart (20 minutes away) and had a bbq. They... More

We were here for 3 days in August with my sister's family and parents. We got 2 adjacent 2 double bed rooms. It's a very average but neat and clean place. I guess most hotels ( or rather motels) in that area are like that. Free wifi, fridge and microwave in the room. But no coffee tea maker/ electric kettle... More

We enjoyed an overnight stay at Golden Sands with our 4 year old and 1 year old girls. Beach area is clean and sandy, water is crystal clear and shallow enough for children to touch bottom and enjoy swimming out quite a ways while still being able to stand. Our 4 year old loved it! Free kayaks are a fun... More

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
