Welcome to a new era of resort living.
The ancient white oaks that stand on the plains surrounding Rice Lake have watched history unfold for centuries. In the wind, their giant branches whisper the legends of the natives who were the first explorers, the first pioneers, the first naturalists and the first adventurers to understand the remarkable beauty of the area. The quiet paddles of the Iroquois dipped into the waters of Rice Lake long before Samuel de Champlain and Catharine Parr Traill used the lake as a stepping stone on the way to discovering a new life in a new land.
To this day, Rice Lake continues to inspire memories and to refresh the spirit of all those who visit its fertile waters and rich landscape.
Golden Beach Resort draws on a storied past - a past founded on the ethics, principles and determination of the Chernuck family.

This new generation continues the family traditions of respect for people and place in a setting of extraordinary beauty.

Rice Lake is renowned for its fer tile ecosystem. Its marshlands are alive with the sounds of songbirds and waterfowl, the splashing of fish rising to catch nymphs that hover over the water lilies and the splash of a beaver's tail as it slips into the water.
Teeming with nature, the lake and its shorelines are a destination for naturalists and sportsmen alike. The lake's rich ecosystem produces some of the finest game fish and bird life in Ontario.
The diversity of the landscape that surrounds Golden Beach Resort tempts tourists to return year after year. The lake acts as a magnet for water sports and boating, the rich wildlife habitat lures naturalists and eco-tourists and the manicured golf course is a destination in itself. Each variation in this exceptional natural environment delivers a special experience.
Whether it's the quiet pleasure of hooking a fish in the moments after dawn or the laughter of friends on the golf course, the results are the same... relaxation, restoration and revitalization.
