We have been staying at Golden Sands for about 15 years now. Among the "mom and pop" type adirondack resorts in the area, this is up there. The views are awesome and the family just loves hanging out in the lake. Of course, there are kayaks and you can head out or just sit on your deck/porch and enjoy the place. Bob and I always have several good conversations. What starts out as a hi, how are you lends to 15-20 minutes of what could be any topic. For any bad reviews you see here, don't rely on them. Maybe you were expecting some other type of resort, yes there are always more expensive places, but why write such a negative review? If you go, I suggest getting one of the rooms down near the beach area. For things to do in the area, just ask for a suggestion and Bob will help you out. There are plenty of restaurants, gift shops, mini golf courses and other attractions. Great Escape is down the road. The mall is nearby if it rains and you want to see a movie. There is plenty of history in this area, do a little research and check the places out. Don't forget the fireworks downtown every Thursday, go early for a place to park. You're on vacation, enjoy yourselves!
