Just returned from a two nite summer get-away at Sir Sam's Inn & WaterSpa celebrating our 37th anniversary. An awesome place and location. Special thanks out to Fernando the manager there for all the friendship, great food and excellent staff. The view is absolutely beautiful and the grounds. Will return in the winter season.

We stayed at Sir Sam's for the Canada day weekend. To me nothing says Canada like a weekend at a lake so we hoped Sir Sam's would be the right choice.

Spent a two day weekend here this week past and had another wonderful experience. The main building is a large, turn of the century "cottage" with lots of charm.

Sir Sam's is a beautiful property on a wonderfully quiet lake in Haliburton. The staff were spectacularly customer oriented and the food was phenomenal. From the moment we arrived until the time we left we felt like we were staying with family, a rich uncle, who has a wickedly relaxing water spa. Definitely will go back to Sir Sam's. Fernando,...
