I picked this hotel to stay at as I had planned a trip to the area to go dog sledding for my wife's birthday at winterdance (which I'd highly recommend checking out), and it was the nicest looking one in the area. I wish I'd known more about the extra stuff they offered, and that we'd had more time to...

We recently stayed at Sir Sam's to have a relaxing get-away, and achieved that. The highlight was definitely the restaurant. Service was excellent and breakfast and dinner were absolutely delicious. The inn has some nice areas to relax by a fire, and in the pool. The pool is lovely, but could be a bit warmer to make it a true...

My husband and I spent 3 evenings at sir sams. Our overall impression was good, staff were pleasant, water spa was enjoyable, and food was tasty. We definitely would recommend staying in the main hotel in the winter to be near the breakfast and dinner service and the water spa. Two items which we thought could use some improvements. 1....

Visited the inn over Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate my birthday and will certainly not be returning. Very overpriced for the quality provided. Good points: Our room in the Northwoods section was very nice with a good view and the spa / pool area was bright and very relaxing. We enjoyed a lovely dinner the first evening.
