A short pleasant day today. We had sunshine and beautiful scenery as we traveled 25 miles down the Champlain Canal through four locks to the historic town of Fort Edward, New York.

Our most notable activity yesterday was to ride around the lake a couple of times on the bikes that are provided here at the house. We did find a large turtle that was trying to find its way back into the mud though. We decided today then to drive through some more of the lovely countryside around here and look at all the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Sands Resort on Lake George Diamond Point
We've been coming to Lake George and stayed at different places. This was our first stay at Golden Sands and we stayed in a beach room. The rates were very reasonable and we got a lot for our money. We were impressed with the facilities and location and in the rooms, especially. They were clean and well maintained and a big plus was that the rooms have microwaves and refrigerators and other conveniences like DVD/VHS players with a large selection of movies lot of movies to rent at cheap prices. Other people who stayed there were nice and we grilled out and had a beach bonfire a couple of nights with some of them. The office staff were helpful when we asked for anything and even helped us pick local restaurants, and they were great. This place was a good deal and came with a lots of extras. We had a pleasant stay and plan to come back next year.
I stayed at the Golden Sands because I planned a last minute trip to Lake George and this was the only available hotel and I THOUGHT it looked halfway decent on the website. I was sure fooled. When I pulled up I could not stop laughing because I could not believe that this was where I was going to be staying for 4 nights. The outside was pretty worn down,the pool was so small and dirty, and the room was very tight and it smelled musty. The service was horrible and the owner was extremely rude. He even yelled at a little boy and cursed at his father because the boy was looking at his dogs through the fence. I could not believe that somebody would treat their guest like this. The housekeeping service never left the right amount of towels no matter how many times we asked. The one thing that really turned me off was when the office closed at night they left a plunger outside the door in a dirty bucket in case anyone needed it.
Golden Sands is a Good Value..
My family of four spent a week at the Golden Sands and had a great time. I would recommend you request a lakeside room. They are away from the road and have a nice view of the lake. The rooms were a little small, especially, the bathroom but we did not spend a lot of time in the room. They were clean and comfortable. The beach area was nice and my kids did use the pool which is not very big but they enjoyed it. While not a luxury hotel I thought The Golden Sands was a good value and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway at a reasonable price.......
Where was the Golden sand?
We were fooled by their Internet site.
Forget about the nice beach that is described there.
It's more a little tiny one that is there.
The sand is OK but not really great.
The guest room needed major renovations.
Our experience wasn't great at all.
The perfect vacation location
Golden Sands was a great getaway - a perfect location for playing or relaxing. It was really easy to get into the village (Lake George) for shopping and dining but being able to escape the maddening crowds and retreat to Golden Sands' beach was the best. There was plenty of space on the beach for everyone. The big lawn and jungle gym gives kids more space to run around while not disturbing those of us enjoying the view.
The owners and staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful - especially with dinner and other local activity recommendations.
The vacation was a success and I look forward to returning.
A regular guest
We've been staying at the Golden Sands for about 8 years now for the Americade Rally each June. There are many choices of where to stay, but we consistently go here.
It is a charming place that has the attributes that make Lake George such a wonderful place to spend time: A beach, great view of the lake, cook-out facilities and people that are friendly, especially the owners.
They have given us many suggestions on where to go and what to do in the area over the years and all have been on target. In short, the kind of treatment that you should get when you are a guest at a resort.
Lovely hotel on scenic Lake George
Our family had a lovely time this summer at Golden Sands - the beach & view were just out of this world! Our daughter is still talking about it!
We found the owners friendly and very accommodating - even when they were busy helping other guests - and the hotel is perfectly situated between 2 towns with lots to do!
We plan to make it an annual family get-away destination! We found it peaceful & relaxing! Thank you Golden Sands!!
I loved Golden Sands Resort so much I've already booked it again for next summer.
July at the Sands
I found Golden Sands to be a wonderful little getaway on the water just outside the hectic village of Lake George. I stayed in one of the rooms near the beach, which was very clean and comfortable and had its own picnic table, grill and refrigerator--making it nice to stay there for quiet meals. Bob and Dana (the proprietors) make each visitor feel welcome and are extremely knowledgable on the area--always ready to give out information on the local activities, things to see, places to eat and the nightlife. Golden Sands is a great find!
We stayed at the Golden Sands Resort Motel (on Lake George in Diamond Point, NY) in August 2004 for three days. We requested this motel because it was on Lake George and we thought it would be halfway decent for the price we paid. We we ever wrong! This hotel was overpriced and the quality was very poor. We were extremely disappointed with this motel.
