Cottage country is witnessing a moment in history. Located on the banks of Eagle Lake, Sir Sam’s Inn & Spa is now Canada’s first pot-friendly resort. Visitors can now use recreational marijuana in designated areas on the premises during their cottaging weekend.

The adults-only resort has been around for quite some time, but it recently partnered with Cannabis Hotels to become the first getaway that allows the use of marijuana. They are aiming to retain the original atmosphere and charm while acknowledging that some guests will want to enjoy cannabis. The resort is keeping multiple spots on the property reserved for such guests.

Built around 100 years ago, Sir Sam’s Inn and Spa promises luxury and perfect relaxation opportunities for time away from busy schedules. Guests can choose from rooms overlooking the beautiful lake or even the woods surrounding the cottage. There are walk-in balconies to soak up the scenic views. Each room has a built-in fireplace that can double up as a cozy spot on cold nights.

But the real talking point about this resort is their spa. Sir Sam’s Inn promises complete relaxation and a variety of spa treatments that rejuvenate. Apart from cozy relaxation opportunities, there are plenty of outdoor adventures in and around the hotel. This summer, there is canoeing, paddling, mountain biking, and golfing. Recreational activities are available in winter too, when guests can go skiing and dog-sledding around the resort.

“When we were approached by Cannabis Hotels for this partnership, little did we realize that we would become the first resort in Canada which allows smoking recreational marijuana on its premises,” says Jon Massey, the resort’s director for business development.

Massey added that the road ahead has a challenge for them. “We do not want to be known only as a cannabis resort. Sir Sam’s has a lot to offer. We have been around for nearly a hundred years now. Our amenities and relaxation opportunities are going to be foremost for us.”
