My family and members of the Ontario Fishing Club of the Deaf enjoyed our weekend at the Golden Beach Resort (July 12-14, 2013). The staff were friendly and always available to assist when needed. The docks for boat was excellent, kids enjoyed the fishing from the shores "easy access", the pool was great and even a nice swim at the beach was awesome, lots of trees for shade, their general store had almost everything you needed if you forgot something at home and oh yes the Ice Cream store was great to cool off too! no question about it my family would go back again and it's price is fair for the services it provides!

We have a seasonal site at Golden Beach and love it here. The Boathouse Restaurant is wonderful with Chef Michael. Food is amazing! Also a special mention about the new maintenance man Murray who has been keeping the park in great shape. Beautiful place

I have been traveling from Dayton Ohio to GBR since 1984. I have many wonderful memories. The staff has always been friendly and accommodating. We love fishing in Rice Lake, that is why we come. We just returned from celebrating our 20th anniversary with our family. We rented 2 of the 3 bedroom deluxe cottages. They were perfect. I found the trip to be very reasonably priced. We also rented a deluxe pontoon for the week. We did have some trouble with the engine, but the staff bent over backwards to help us with smiles on their faces. The staff is wonderful. The restaurant has some of the best food. That is one of the best sunsets in the world. So peaceful. Thank you for all the memories and for making our 20th great. Can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: If you are there for fishing just rent the basic cottages, but if you are there to vacation rent del...

I just wanted to give a big thanks to Golden Beach Resort, specifically the special events coordinator Hilary O'Brien who was there every step of the way! I recently was the best man for my best friends wedding and we could not have asked for a more perfect day! Hilary went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of and any stress that could be alleviated was.

The views were unbelievable, from the ceremony on the hill with the entire rice lake in the background, to the picturesque waterfront cottage style condos and buildings. It made me feel at home and as if I were back at the family cottage celebrating this beautiful day with family and loved ones.

Dinner was delicious, the reception was beautiful, and again, anything we needed help with setting up, Hilary was right there one step ahead of us! I didnt want to leave the next day, and the guests that had opted to stay over night did not regret the decision, and all wished they could stay longer. Thank you again Golden Beach Resort, the happy couple will never forget that special day!

We held a wedding at GBR including renting out a bunch of cottages for our guests. Once we physically saw the resort to scout for location, we simply knew we could not have our wedding/honeymoon anywhere else. The ceremony space was the most beautiful site I could ever imagine, and the reception space was a great environment to get down and boogie. From the start with all the craziness of planning a wedding GBR was there to help answer my questions. Olga and Hilary were very prompt to answer my q's and aid me in the coordination leading up to and on the big day. All the staff manning the front desk were always prompt with helping me with cottage arrangements ( not an easy feat with so many guests).The food from the reception was delicious and I am still getting compliments on the moistness of the chicken.

GBR was very affordable for what we were wanting to do, and for a limited budget bride I was extremely happy that I was able to do this. We booked a 3 bdrm deluxe cottage and 15 traditional on and off lake cottages for our guests. All of our guests still can't say enough about how much fun they had at the resort and cant wait to come back! Each of our cottages came with all the fine amenities one would find the comforts at home including full fridge and stove, pots and pans, microwave, bbq, deck chairs ... heck even dish detergent, which I was delightfully surprised to see.

My husband and I stayed the remainder of the week for our honeymoon which was one of the most amazing vacations we have ever had! The fishing was awesome ( they were literally jumping out of the water after a rain storm), the scenery truly picturesque, the food at the boathouse restaurant was excellent ( burger stuffed with pulled pork, and the chicken wings yumm!) for those nights we did not want to cook and the customer service which was awesome! The staff even took the time to congratulate us and ask us how everything was through out the week which made us feel part of the GBR family rather then just a payment which means a heck of a lot. When the weather did no cooperate we had a lovely sitting area to break out the monopoly , and cozy up to a movie.

We had such an amazing time and cannot wait to come back next year to celebrate with our friends our 1st anniversary!!

The suites are extremely outdated and basic as mentioned in the earlier comments. Everything in the condo is the cheapest you can get plus from 30-40 years ago. It’s hard to imagine why people like to come here. To me, it’s a kind of suffering to stay in such a terrible place. Everyone needs to wear a band during the entire stay even at sleep in order to be kept track. You need to take out your own garbage, no towels are provided, only one roll of toilet paper, and the checkout time is 10am… You name it, it’s not a place to serve you to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable, it’s a place to discipline you and to remind you life isn’t easy. The place is all owners oriented, to their best convenience. The price isn’t cheap either. I would be reluctant to go there even it’s free.
Not all negative, there are a lot of fish in the lake, the restaurant food is good and reasonably priced, staff in general are helpful and nice. But still I don’t get it why people have stayed here still want to come back.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback for our resort. It is important to us to know of any shortfalls during our guest's stay, so we can look for ways to improve the experience for future guests. While the cottage experience is not necessarily like the hotel experience, we feel it is an opportunity for families to "unplug" get back to nature, and enjoy the out of doors as much as possible. We have accommodations to suit many different budgets, and all provide the comfort and necessities for a home away from home.

Most hotels and accommodations have a 10am check out, as this allows time for housekeeping staff to prepare for the next arrivals in the afternoon, particularly during the busy summer months, and our check in time is between 2 - 5pm. Late check outs are available, we do have to charge a fee as we have to have staff available and this also delays room preparation for the next arrivals.

Our wristbands identify registered guests, as well as allow access to all of our ammenities, and are proof of payment, which is for the protection of our guests and the resort.

We are glad you were able to enjoy the fishing Rice Lake is well known for, as well as have an opportunity to enjoy the food our Boat House restaurant has to offer. Our staff are always happy to be of assistance and our hope is that all of our guests have a pleasant stay.

Thank you again for your review.
