Just returned from a week vacation. We have been coming to this resort for many many years. Couldn't ask for a better beach and the weather this trip was spectacular. Thanks Jeff and Kim for a memorable trip. Cannot wait to come back next year! Highly recommend Sandy Bay!! Rick and Virginia

Awesome place to stay. I have stayed at Sandy Bay a number of times in the past for ice fishing and have recommended Jeff and Kim's place to other friends. The service was amazing and if there were any problems, Jeff was on it instantly. We've stayed at other outfitters for ice fishing and none compare to the service at... More

Let me start by saying I will never go back to this resort again!!! It started with a phone call on our way there to get clear directions from Kim and being advised to not bother showing up till 11:30 or there are going to make us wait in our cars. So we get there at 11:30, get checked in... More

We will start by advising that the above groups are definitely not welcome to return at our establishment, as confirmed to them upon departure. The arrival time of l2:00 noon was pre-arranged at the time of booking, and confirmed the previous night, as both cottages were occupied until Friday a.m., then required changeover cleaning. We suggested that they get lunch... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Chalkley's Sandy Bay Cottages during late Spring of 2013. Jeff, Kim and family provided friendly service, that went above and beyond. Our cottage (cottage #1) was very comfortable and homey. Our favorite. Fishing was outstanding. Lake Nipissing is truly beautiful, especially the sunsets. Our two week stay went by far too quickly. We look... More

Our group decided that we would "go back" to staying at a cottage instead of spending nights in an Ice bungalow. We wanted the added comfort and Chalkley's Sandy Bay operation truly fit the bill. The cottage was clean, comfortable plus we had the added advantage of satellite TV for the die hard hockey and football fans in our group.... More

Jeff and Kim make your stay a wonderful time. The location is beautiful and the fishing is excellent. The cottages have a beautiful view of beach, the lake and northern greenery. The sunsets have to be the best ever sitting on the dock. You have to go there and experience it Miss being there!!!

“1 and 2 are the quietest and our fav. 6 and 7 are right on the beach and really cool, sand and beautiful view right out your door. 3 and 4 have great views and access to boats and beach, right in the middle. the bungalows 8, 9, 10 and 11 are huge and all have wonderful views. Saw the northern lights there. Nice atmosphere and good location on lake Nippising for fishing or boating.”
