My mom, sister and I visited here for our 9th trip this July. Since Ryan took over last year, we were curious to see what changes would be in place. They were all great improvements. The dining room has been freshened up and feels more contemporary, while still maintaining its casual, lakeside ambiance. The outside porch was rebuilt beautifully and... More

We have been to Sir Sam's Inn, half a dozen times over a 12 years period and always loved the picturesque lakeside setting and the quaint inn. This was our first summertime visit and we enjoyed all the activities they had to offer; canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, evening campfires and the lovely waterspa. However, we were disappointed that some of... More

Very friendly welcome and tour around the resort as soon as we arrived. The staff was so friendly and would go out of their way to ensure you had everything you needed and anything you might want, that you didn’t know you wanted. There is plenty to do - from various water activities, tennis, indoor activities and of course, the... More

Would not hesitate to recommend this dining experience to anyone that is looking to have an excellent meal that would make any occasion very special. Bravo to the chef Ross and all... More

Love this quaint jewel of Northern Ontario. Service gets better and better all the time. Ryan and staff treat you like Royalty with fine dining, beautiful rooms and surroundings and the greatest water spa you can imagine. Many other attractions such as tennis,sailing,swimming in lake or outdoor pool. As seniors we have stayed at many resorts over the years but... More

This would be my 12th or 13th visit.... I just can't stay away! If you are looking to relax, enjoy the water and have just the best food for an unbelievable price, Sir Sams awaits you. The water spa is amazing and I generally spend anywhere from 6 to 8 hours in the spa pool over the entire weekend. Outdoor... More

Our 2 night stay at Sir Sam's Inn was a very pleasant experience. Their customer service, as many have mentioned previously, is top notch. The staff will do their very best to accommodate you as best as possible. We mainly interacted with Gordo, who worked the desk and was very helpful and friendly right from the start. He showed us...

We recently had our first stay here on the Friday night long weekend in May. Service at reception was first class, we were offered a tour. The room was clean and quaint , the beds were very comfortable. The meals were outstanding, and the service was great. The Inn Keeper introduced himself and related the history of the Inn. Overall...

We live here and it's great to have such a wonderful place open in the winter! In May the new owners have continued 'dip and dine'. Access to the waterspa and a 3 course dinner for $39.00. You can go to the water spa and enjoy the warm salt water and different spa areas, have a sauna, shower then go... More
