I have had several pedicures done here at the spa and it is well worth it. They clean everything in front of you. The staff are friendly and wonderful.

The dining room overlooks the beautiful Golden Lake.. sunsets are always breathtaking . The ambiance is warm, friendly and inviting...the Sands on Golden Lake reflects the <hands on> dedication of the owners Jeff and Jeff. Staff bring a personal touch to your dining experience and the menu adapts to the season bringing new dishes.

We stayed at the Sands for a few days and ate here often. The dining room overlooking Golden Lake is beautiful. A varied menu whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner along with tasty and wonderful attentive service. Beware, closed Mondays as are most of the few restaurants around in the area.try this place, you won't regret it !

We are enjoying our third annual visit to the Sands on Golden Lake. It's just as beautiful as the last two visits. New chef, but the food is just as fresh and inventive as before. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend visiting here!

We were told to try Sands for our anniversary dinner. The location was nice, looking out over the lake while eating; the service and food was disappointing. We had a reservation and were promptly sat at our table when we arrived. Our server did well with getting us drinks to start. We placed our food order and it came out... More
