5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

When I give a 5 star review, I don't mean this is equal to the W Hotel in Times Square. Things to consider: It's Lake George, not the Hamptons, we were not forced into a three-night minimum at the height of the season, the place is right on the lake with a beautiful beach and free kayaks, the rooms are...

I have been coming here for years and the place and the management never disappoints! Clean rooms, nice staff and easy access to a sand beach and a very relaxing location. Also very handicap friendly. The view is one of the best on the lake. Bob and his team make us feel welcome every year! I brought new friends up... More

My husband and I wanted a few days away and Golden Sands was a perfect choice for what we were looking for. Bob was extremely accommodating from the very beginning as I am currently 6 months pregnant. He accepted our gift certificate from BedandBreakfast.com without issue and was very easy to deal with! We had a great unit upstairs lakeside... More

A couple of friend's and I stayed here last weekend. The rooms were clean, air-conditioned, and decently sized. The lake was awesome, very short walk from the rooms not on the lake side. They had free kayaks available and a fire pit. The location was perfect, 10 mins from town, and the staff was very nice. We want to make... More

The rooms were clean but dated. Too much notty pine. Shower like a small phone booth. Nice beach area. Each unit has a BBQ and picknic bench. Beach units were better than all other units. Adequate parking. Carpets could be cleaner. Close to convenient stores and restaurants. Forest Hill Trading Company for coffee and bagels. Lone Bull for full breakfasts.

Booked 2 nights at this resort but only ended up staying 1. The grounds were great. The beach and lakefront were incredible but the rooms were too dated and worn out for our liking. The rates were reasonable for the area and season but still expected a little more room cleanliness for the money. We ended up staying at our... More

We have been up to the Lake George area for the last ten years and this is our first time at Golden Sands. The room was very clean and well equipped. Being so close to the lake was the best part. Opening our curtains and watching sunrise on the lake from bed was a luxury. Every room has two new... More

The room we stayed in, although small, was very clean and comfortable. However, the shower was a bit of a joke in that it was so small you could hardly even turn around in it. (The water pressure was more than adequate though.) Very family oriented with a lot of nice folks around. WiFi was excellent and speedy. Beach access... More

The rooms are moderately outdated and it is not a 5 star hotel but it is great for people who want to do activities or relax on the beach. The private beach, picnic tables, grills,fire pit, and free kayaks makes things so much easier. The location is great. The village is not far and there are plenty of restaurants and... More

Just a few miles north of the cordwood and noisy Village of Lake George this gem has its own private beach with free unlimited kayak use. Bob is as friendly as helpful as can be with restaurant and activities suggestions. With prices this reasonable, do not expect fancy or luxurious rooms, but they are clean comfortable and quiet.
