I love the fact that the drone of mordern life is not pervasive in this place. No televisions, loud radios, sirens, loud machinery, etc..., to interupt your comtemplations. Silence is golden!! However, the sounds of nature abound and nature is all around. Peacefulness is easy in this place.

You can tell the moment you drive into Sandy Cove Road that God is there, and He is going to meet you there, if you are willing. So with a companion like that, what's not to like? This is not a review of a particular experience. I have attended many events at Sandy Cove over a period of 15 years....

Hi Susan! Beautifully said. :) So happy that you are able to find rest with Jesus even when things aren't quite perfect like He is! Love how you described the internet connection. Hope to see you soon!

You cannot find views much better than at Sandy Cove. I have been coming here for about 6 years with my church for Ladies Retreat. The facilities are terrific, and very useful for our purposes. Rooms are available in all sizes--suites, or 2-5 person rooms help everyone get a price they need.

The room service was great...as well as the surrounding spaces, activities and staff. However, I can't say the same for the food. My friend's kids, a few other people and I left there with a stomach ache. Some threw up, while I was nauseated the entire time...until I got back to NYC. I could've only eat the fresh fruits, which...

Sandy Cove is a wonderful place to experience hospitality, great food, fellowship, and comfortable accommodations in a gorgeous setting! The sunsets over the water are breathtaking. Our group attended the Fun and Fitness 4 Life weekend in February. The staff was organized, hospitable, and very helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had a lovely view of the water. Our...
