“Relaxing, picturesque”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Had the group out to enjoy a peaceful breakfast before we did a run (motorcycle). The Boathouse cafe was excellent in its timing, selection and food enjoyment. it is priced accordingly with other restaurants.

The staff upon our return were very accomodating and we once again had a great meal at the Boathouse cafe. The cottages range in quality and you pay for what you get - so we had no issue, even with us having to take out our empties etc. (stop the whining please, previous post).

The camping accomodations were very busy and well managed even with the exuberance from some over partying - well done. the boyz had your back by the way :). pool was relaxing before we left teh next day.

We will be back this year. Hey, how about getting involved in a charity poker run Golden Beach? You have the room to accomodate?

I hosted my wedding here in June 2013. It was great! The staff were wonderful in advising and guiding me. Hilary was extremely helpful during the rehearsal, wedding day, and flowing the wedding day. My guest are still talking about the wonderful views, fabulous food, and how great the resort was. In short i found my experience at Golden Beach to be excellent!!! I would book there again for family functions or a personal vacation.

After reading mixed reviews, wasn't sure what to expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find a nice campground (stayed in the full hook-up section near the office/pool) with decent-sized sites and a few trees for shade. Lots of activities such as swimming pool (unheated), wade pool, hot tub, cute "froggy" splash pad, tennis courts, volleyball, & shuffle board ($5 refundable deposit). Small beach area but large marina with many boat docks, perfect for boating and fishing. Numerous cottages but they appeared dated and in need of a little TLC, i.e. paint peeling on the window frames. We got to go inside one unit and in spite of the tired appearance (furniture from the 60's), it did look clean. Were given coloured wrist bands to wear during our stay but removed them as none of the staff seemed to care if we had them on or not. Would have been nice if the staff wore uniforms and had logos on their trucks/golf carts to identify them as staff -- didn't know if they worked for Golden Beach or were just the seasonal campers driving around the campground. Website says it's an extra $10/day on top of the $48 daily rate if you use your a/c. How would they know? Is there somebody who walks around to see if it's on? I found this rather silly and we used ours anyway. Didn't see staff around the campground at all, even to clean/check on a campsite after campers left. Overall though, a pleasant peaceful experience.

Thank you for your review!

We are glad you had an overall pleasant stay. We believe the mixed reviews are a result of not enough research, or simply miscommunication. We don't claim to be something we are not. Offering a "back to basics" approach to get away from the city, Golden Beach Resort offers an authentic cottage experience with a large amount of activities to enjoy, including boat & motor rentals. Our staff is equipped with uniforms, this year being a mix of blue and red shirts with our logo and staff's name on the front.

Our beach is small, but child friendly with the addition of the lily pad to enjoy. Our office staff communicate this when making reservations over the phone so guests are aware of the size of our beach. There is also an outdoor pool, children s wading pool, and splash pad for those who don't wish to use our beach.

We strive to keep the resort as clean as possible with priorities given to areas in greater need. Any garbage left behind by campers should be cleaned up in a matter of hours.

We look forward to serving you in the future.

We stayed in one of the deluxe cottages for a week in July 2013. Overall the resort is good for families, as there are many amenities for children, including the pool, splash pad, beach and children's program. (There are several other things which we didn't use, including volleyball, shuffleboard and a games room.)
Good things:
--The cottages were very clean and well equipped.
--Even though the cottages were close together, it was quiet.
Not so good things:
--We ate dinner at the restaurant twice, and the service was very slow for one of the dinners. My sister tried going a different time, but left before sitting down because just one waitress was serving for all the tables.
--The resort advertises that there is a petting zoo on the property, but it is not anything close to that. We saw a few turkeys, pigs and sheep in pens, none of which were gentle. Anyone looking for animals should drive a few minutes to the donkey sanctuary, where there are donkeys, cats and other animals tended by volunteers.
--The beds and pillows were uncomfortable. I would recommend that guests bring their own pillows.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in one of our Deluxe Lakefront Cottages. It is good to hear that the children had so many activities to look forward to each day!
We promote a family friendly atmosphere as much as possible, which includes efforts such as our 11pm Quiet Hour and our Children's Program throughout the week.
We are sorry to hear that your Boathouse Cafe experience did not meet your expectations, as well as the Petting Zoo. Thank you for informing us about the uncomfortable beds/pillows. We will have our housekeeping team investigate as soon as possible.

Thank you again for your review, and we hope to see you again next summer!

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!

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...
