“Gem of Naramata”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Sandy Beach Lodge is a gem! Whether you are renting the cabins or you stay at the Lodge (our first time at the lodge this July), you will not be disappointed. The grounds, cabins, lodge, and facilities are all kept in excellent condition. It is a high quality resort and very restful. Plenty to do and everything you need is right there. As well, it is a 5 minute walk into the village where there is an excellent restaurant. Wineries galore to explore and a short drive to Penticton. We loved it and will go back.

We have stayed in the "Lodge" at the SBL for four summers now and have been more than pleased with our accommodations.... It is rustic but clean, comfortable and well maintained. The breakfasts were YUMMY! Linda and Mike were so friendly and tried to accommodate to our every wish... we had a wonderful dinner one evening hosted by Joy Road Catering which was superb..do sign up for it!! We would suggest taking a fan if you are going in July/August....there are ceiling fans but a small fan on the porch to bring in the cool night air is wonderful... don't miss the Naramata Market on Wednesday's and the Pentictin Market on Saturday is a must. The Okanagan Cherries were the best!!! Many groves are above the property.
We will continue to go as long as we are able... LOVE IT!!!

This is a lovely lodge in an idillic situation and my husband and I have been staying in the lodge at various times over the last 40 years. On our arrival this last August we were surprised to find that the kitchenette and BBQ facilities which had always been available to lodge guests had been removed. This year for lodge guests a set cooked breakfast was served at 9.15 sharp or not at all. The breakfasts were very good but plonked down by the manager (who was also the cook) without a smile or a 'good morning'. We found the hosts to be very dour. These hosts did not have the same interest in the upkeep of the grounds and equipment as we had previously found. There was initially 4 paddles for 3 canoes, but one was broken whilst we were there leaving 3 paddles for 3 boat - a very dangerous situation. The bolt was broken off the pool gate allowing little children free access. And if you wish to play table tennis - do take your own bat!

During the 2012 fall shoulder season of this lodge, I organized and facilitated a retreat for a group of 11 business leaders. Previously my visits to this beautiful property were entirely related to summer vacationing with family. I had some misgivings about the suitablity about of the resort for business retreat purposes. There was no need for concern in the shoulder season.

Linda, Mike and the housekeeping staff were outstanding in catering to our needs. Our breakfasts and lunches were delicious. The service was at all times proactive, friendly and prompt. The meeting room was very attractive and had good acoustics. For accomodation we used a combination of lodge rooms and cabins. Some cabins were not so well suited to sharing two men per cabin, as the second bedroom was best suited for children. There are lots of activities available in the area, and the entire lodge property is perfectly maintained. Our three dinners were in area wineries and restaurants, some of which are in easy walking distance. Sandy Beach Lodge is an excellent choice for retreats. Mike and Linda were outstanding hosts.

We stayed 3 nights here and did the Okanagan wineries, the KVR trail, canoed on the lake, swam in the pool. The welcome was friendly, Linda and William were so helpful, the room was great and though a bit on the small side was compensated by having a lovely enclosed by bugscreen balcony overlooking the lake. The breakfasts were well balanced and delicious. We were glad to have had the 3 nights.

My family and I recently stayed at this lovely property on Lake Okanagan. There is a lovely sandy beach on the property, and the water is clear and great for swimming. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage. It was huge! The bedrooms are a good size, the master has a queen, and 2nd - 2 twin beds, good sized living room with comfortable sofa bed. There is a large bright kitchen, and dining tabel for 6. There is a spacious deck off the living room, with another patio table and chairs, and on the grass, a picnic table. Patio umbrella's are provided as well as deck chairs. Every cottage has a gas barbeque on the deck.

There is also a pool and hot tub on the property, ping pong table, 2 tennis courts, basketball hoop, and canoes, kayaks and paddleboard are on the beach for use of the guests. The main lodge has a TV, and big common area. The rooms in the lodge come with an ample breakfast.

I would not hesitate recommending this property. It's well run, beautiful grounds, and very comfortable. It's the best in Naramata!

We were in Naramata to attend the 1st Annual Naramata Paddle Regatta for work. It was our last event of the season so we decided it would be well worth it to stay on site at Sandy Beach Lodge. We were so glad we did. Linda and Mike were amazing hosts and the location was absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the lodge and loved our room. It was very cozy, well decorated and the view was a big highlight for us. Our breakfasts were healthy and great-tasting (thanks Mike!) Although this was a work trip we would highly recommend Sandy Beach Lodge for a romantic get-away too - we will definitely be back.
