We had our 40th anniversary dinner here and it was fabulous. The dinner was very good the General Manager greeted us at our table and was especially nice. Before we left she offered us a glass of champagne in honour of our anniversary. We sat in the lounge to drink it and there was a piano player playing beautiful music.... More

Wow! Has this place ever changed. And not for the better. We have visited Sir Sam's a number of times and this will be our last. Checking in was a terrible experience. The employee at the counter can't even look you in the eye when speaking to you. Rooms were smelly, musty and in need of some deep cleaning. Bed... More

Rooms large, bright and clean. Staff so welcoming and accommodating. Delicious food and intimate dining with live piano. Amazing live music. Swimming, canoeing, biking, tennis, boat rides, movies, games, water spa, sauna- They have thought of everything! It was quite the 'experience'.

My wife and I have been coming to Sir Sams Inn for 11 years now, summer and winter, total times =15. Things are being skimped on that maybe the first time visitor might not notice. Our last visit was the last week of July 2015. On arrival Sir Sams has always had a tradition of a welcome back package and... More

If Sir Sam's is going to charge 5 star rates they need to provide comparable service and value. THEY CLEARLY DONT. Examples; No phones in the rooms / A small computer sized TV screen on the wall barely discernible from the bed / Very modestly appointed rooms ... essentially I would experience better at a Comfort Inn / No air...

Enjoyed our 2days at this lovely Inn. The dining room was excellent with interesting and delicious selections.. The waterspa area very relaxing. A couple concerns. It is really not disability friendly, the rooms have no way of contacting help if needed without walking to main lodge where at times there didn't seem to be enough staff. No one gave us... More

I was there twice within the 2 years. I enjoyed the water spa very much. A unique environment. Something different to spend the time. Food is quite good. The Lakeview room is more roomy than a regular room. Try to get that if possible. Summer time is good as you have options to swim outdoor or enjoy the spa indoor.... More

Our first visit was August 2014 ... we loved it so much, my husband and me decided to come back (Aug 3-5) Sir Sam's offers many activities which are inclusive, so you can do as much or as little as you want..... complete with a rustic "Cottage Country" charm. Activities: water sports equipment which includes kayaks, water boards, canoes and... More

When we checked in we got to see our room and then had a tour of the resort. We loved our room which was in the main in and had our own private screened in porch. The room was a bit dated but it added to the charm. The mattress needs replacing which we reported to the front desk. It... More

I just returned from Sir Sam's Inn and Water spa. Drop dead gorgeous with the nicest people. All water sports included free. Amazing indoor salt water pool with areas full of different jets for the whole body. Food was incredible. Free daily boat cruise around the lake with ducks, geese and loons. No problem with gluten free. Best staff. No... More
