And the food..., who would have expected out of the middle of nowhere to find food like that. All so beautifully presented, and so flavorful. The mussels in white wine sauce ...I had to ask...

Stayed in one of the sweet, cozy chalets. Snowy outside, warm cozy fireplace and white duvet inside! Cooked for myself in the well equipped kitchen, but also dined in the scrumptious restaurant. Food amazing, service top shelf! Will return for sure, many times and will share with friends.

This was our second visit to the Sands on Golden Lake and, based on our first visit which was on a beautifully warm late summer weekend, we were eagerly looking forward to trying out a winter getaway at this wonderful location. The owners have done an incredible job of enhancing this older property, and the rooms are comfortable, very spacious,...

Stayed here over Christmas and it was a nice getaway. Eventhough the place was practically empty we could still hear other guests nearby. Don't know what it would be like in the summer when it's more crowded. Restaurant was good with decent food and very friendly staff. We had a chalet with 3 bedrooms of which we didn't use 2....

Had a great time celebrating New Years at The Sands. Enjoyed snowshoeing on the frozen lake and bush trails across the road. The décor, DJ, friendly staff, rooms overlooking the lake & especially the food were excellent. There were 8 in our party and we enjoyed mixing with the other guests as we rang in the New Year. Thanks to...

“we had room 17 and it was good, but up the stairs, if you want a main floor room be sure to ask”

“Select a room overlooking the lake (although I suspect they all do as the inn is right on the water).”

“Our only concern was the slippery stairs & deck as it had snowed very hard. Not sure if a mat would have helped. We loved our room. It was a perfect spot to meet up with friends for a very safe, special New Years Eve dinner, dance & brunch! ”
