We rented almost the entire resort for about 10 days and had an excellent time. Our group included almost 70 people from 9 months to 60+ years old and the place was enjoyed by all. The beach was definitely a big hit. The water is shallow enough for the little swimmers and they had lots of fun building sand castles. There is a small dock that the older kids had lots of fun throwing each other off! The water was very warm (on most days!) I had family members that stayed at the chalets and the cottage. It was great for us all to get together to socialize or for group meals. My family of 5 had one of the unrenovated beach rooms and we thought there was lots of space. The price was great! The only feedback I provided was that they need more towel holders and a mat at the door to wipe feet after going to the beach. It would also be nice to have a coffee pot / fridge / microwave. They seem to be standard in most places we have stayed lately. But... they do have coffee-to-go in the resturant! We had a dinner for 36 one night, Jeff and Jeff were very accommodating. The staff were very friendly as well. We all thought the food was amazing! We also thought the prices on the menu (limited to 4 selections + a kids menu for such a larger group) were very reasonable and were very surprised to discovered when we got there that it included our non-alcoholic beaverages and a starter salad!! There is a mini golf across the road that we played at but it is not well maintained. There is a fire pit where we had nightly fires. We had a banquet in the room down stairs which was also great! Very friendly bartender and again the food was excellent! Thanks Jeff, Jeff, Joe, Jane and all the other staff that made our week enjoyable. I would definitely recommend your resort and the ressturant to anyone looking for a quiet place or great food with a view of the lake!

I had a chance to spend the weekend for a wedding. The staff where always smiling (which to me is very important ) and very friendly and extremely accommodating to an anxious family trying to create a perfect day for the bride and groom.The rooms are simple but clean and bright. The view out onto the beach is beautiful, the sunset was spectacular. The beach was well maintained and the water was shallow enough for small children to enjoy themselves and warm enough for the big people. The menu in the restaurant changed for each meal which was great because we didn't have to go out to eat. Friday evening the entertainment was a one women show with a beautiful voice. The meal for the reception was buffet style served hot and delicious. Thank you to the staff for putting up with my family and making my cousins day magical.

beautiful view, but rooms lack essentials such as a fridge, microwave or even a coffee maker. When we arrived and checked in we werent told about what the facilities had to offer and infact were told to park further away from our room, because of an event that was taking place later in the evening that was apparently more important then us being paying guests. And the next day when we requested additional towels one innkeeper argued with us basically saying we had enough. The restaurant was nice, it overlooked the water and the food was good and portions were a fair size the price is a bit expensive but the service is great. I highly recommend going to Eganville to a restaurant called " the new country rose" prices are phenomenal and food is great, trust me you will save a bundle making the short drive there instead of dinning at the hotel

Stayed at the Sands for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The hotel has a great view of the lake and a terrific dining room with very friendly Ottawa Valley service. The staff was very accommodating. Highly recommend the hotel and looking forward to staying there again.

This is a great little place in nowhere. If you want to get away from it all, you can have a stylish, clean room with a view of the lake from your patio or balcony. We lit a fire on the beach and watched the sun go down. We had dinner at the restaurant overlooking the beach and the food was very good - large portions!
