This is the third summer (in a row) that I have stayed here. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the view of the lake can't be beat....David (the owner) and his family are constantly working on the grounds doing up-keeping....if you're looking for a nice stay, you have found it.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view of the lake. If you want a room with a small kitchen attached, make sure you ask for it when you are making your reservation.

This was the fourth time we have stayed here. I can't wait to go back which we will do in just three weeks. The owner, David, is a remarkably kind person. Service excellence is clearly a priority. We also got to meet his family who are equally wonderful. I think that is the true mark of the man. The room is simple but wonderful and the porches! Oh my, the porches. They are amazing. What a great place to decompress at the end of the day. Great views of the lake. Beautiful loon songs at night. The beach is small but romantic and very private. Great swimming. Stunning sunsets. Lots of fun meeting the other guests. The service by the hotel staff is better than home (and my wife is an amazing hostess). We are really looking forward to going back.

Amazing how time fly's I'm delinquent in responding to your review I know, but with your daughter graduating camp disappointed we won't see your family next summer on annual visits. I do hope get the chance to host you and your entire family sometime in the not to distant future. FYI, Adirondacks is not a long visit from Chicago and non-camp weekends and fall are typically quieter and great times to visit. Remember there's always room at "Sandy Point" for your family. Enjoy the holidays!

We took 4 short days to explore the Adirondacks and stopped at the Sandy Point Motel on day 2, we enjoyed it so much we used it as our base for the next 3 days. Our room was clean quiet and comfortable, and the the private porch overlooking the lake was our favorite spot to enjoy the sunset and being serenaded by the local loon family. Dave the property owner was a welcoming host, very friendly and informative and gave us some great tips for exploring the surrounding area. All in all a ***** experience and we'll be back to Sandy Point for a longer stay this Fall, we can't wait!

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room which was great, may try a end-unit downstairs efficiency room in the fall

My wife and I spent a week in the middle of June at Sandy Point. The room had apparently been recently updated, and there was satellite TV with a flat screen and wifi. The room was great and we loved the private screened in balcony. The area was very quiet the week we were there, we needed to relax, and we were certainly able to do that. David recommended several things to do in the area and we took advantage of several of those things. The Adirondack Museum was great --do NOT miss the guide boat construction demonstration, it's fantastic! Buttermilk Falls were really showing off with all of the recent rain. We had a great stay and would highly recommend Sandy Point!

My husband and I booked the motel sight unseen and when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the gorgeous view from our very private screened in balcony facing the lake. The room was comfortable and clean. We were traveling by motorcycle and managed, despite the occasional downpours to do many activities in the area, Buttermilk Falls, took a ride in a sea plane (a must when you are in the area), traveled the roads around to the different lakes in the area. Our host, Dave was wonderful. He went out of his way to make sure our stay was the best it could be, even providing a bag of towels to wipe off the bike. A return trip is definitely in our future. Great place, great host, great area.
