Welcome to the Sands on Golden Lake
Hugging the shoreline of majestic Golden Lake you’ll find the Sands Inn, Restaurant, and Spa. It’s the perfect getaway for business and leisure guests to meet, greet, eat, or rest and play. If you read what others have to say on TripAdvisor® you’ll understand why our customers keep coming back. We are the winner of the 2014, 2015 & 2016 Certificate of Excellence.
Enjoy Ontario's Adventure Playground—the Ottawa Valley.
The Sands is located 1 hour 45 minutes west of Canada's Capital, on the highway 60 corridor, and just 45 minutes to the east gate of Algonquin Park. There's something for every traveller to explore. Our backyard is Renfrew County and it's made up of 2.4 million hectares of breathtaking wilderness. Truly a nature-lovers paradise, the Ottawa Valley is located between Algonquin Park and the Ottawa River. With 900 lakes, four major river systems, and world-class Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking—there’s plenty to experience in your free time. If you like, you don’t even have to venture off the Sands campus for we have an expanse of lakeside activity and beaches just steps from our door.
