Welcome! Sandy Bay Cottages is a family oriented resort featuring clean
two, three and four bedroom housekeeping units sleeping up to 8 persons.
Located near the mouth of the Trent River on the south shore of beautiful Rice Lake, Sandy Bay Cottages offers terrific Weekly Rates. All packages are inclusive of gas BBQ's and free use of paddle boats and Kayaks.
The season begins the first Saturday in May and ends Thanksgiving Weekend in October.
For the children in the family (big and small) there is a full playground area equipped with swings, slides, climber, merry-go-round and, of course, a lovely sandy beach for swimming. Every Thursday in July and August we have a children's fishing derby in the morning and potluck supper in the evening where all our guests are welcome to share food and friendship. There is a recreation hall that is open every evening with a pool table, shuffleboard, table tennis and card tables for your enjoyment. Limited Wi-Fi is available.
Fishing is excellent. Species include Walleye (Pickerel), Muskie, Large and Smallmouth Bass, Carp, Panfish (Bluegill, Rock Bass, Perch and Crappie). Everything is at hand including bait, two fish cleaning stations, boat launch, fishing license, fuel and complimentary fish freezing.
Set on level ground, most cottages are located near the beach. For privacy, some cottages are located further back yet still have a lake view. The Virtual Tour will get you oriented. Picnic and lawn furniture, as well as Gas BBQs are located near each cottage for you to use.
Facilities include a choice of 2,3,4 bedroom housekeeping cottages. The cottages, which are completely finished, have a 3 piece bathroom, living room, kitchen and bedrooms.
A private deck or patio provides outdoor relaxation. Each bedroom contains a double bed, comforter or blanket. In addition, one of the bedrooms has a single built-in bunk.
The eat-in kitchen is equipped with a modern fridge, stove, coffee maker, toaster, microwave oven, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans.
In the furnished living room a chesterfield, easy chairs, tables, lamps and a heater add to your comfort.
