Wonderfully charming motel and cottages. Exceptionally clean and quaint. Owners are caring, and devoted to this property. The motel and cottages have a long history and hopefully will continue on into the future as well. The lake is gorgeous, and the beach area is very nice. The view is awesome.

We loved the place and would stay there again when coming to that area. We're a senior couple and we appreciated the quiet, cleanliness, good service, good location, and the many recreational choices on the property. The room was on the small side, with just the basics, but it was clean and comfortable for our two-night stay. Sounds louder than... More

My husband and I stayed for a few days in one of the efficiencies. It was clean and comfortable, with pots, pans, linens and a small kitchenette (only heads-up I'd give -- the double bed was a bit sunken in the middle, made for some adjustments sleeping, but was still very comfortable). A nice seating area in front of the... More

We stayed 4 nights in August. My husband got a 24 hour cold and he stayed in the cabin all day while I explored Ausable Chasms with family staying at the motel rooms with the kitchenette. Janice, the Innkeeper offered to put us up in the larger room with kitchenette that my family had stayed in the previous night at... More

We stayed in Cabin #8 (“Osgood House”) and it was very good for 2 adults + 2 children. The cabin was really clean and confortable, kitchen with anything you need to prepare food, charcoal grill and picnic table, lovely views although is located across Route 28N from our beach and some of our grounds. All the facilities of the hotel... More

I went to Long Lake with a girlfriend for the weekend. The Shamrock is a basic motel yet very clean and comfortable. They have done a nice job updating the rooms. The rooms have been freshly painted and the bathrooms have new tile in them. The room and grounds are very clean. The staff was helpful, friendly and very accommodating.... More

My family and I have been staying at the Shamrock motel for about 4 years. We are going back next week again. Every stay is very enjoyable and the owners are very welcoming. The cottages are nice and pretty clean. The porches are nice and most of the cottages have an amazing view of Long Lake. We always enjoy our... More

We have been staying at The Shamrock for several years now and it just keeps getting better and better. You could not ask for more accommodating and lovely proprietors - Tim and Beate. They go above and beyond to make your stay a pleasant one. The cabins are spotlessly clean, and if you need something you have only to ask.... More

We have now stayed at Motel Long Lake, Sandy Point, and Shamrock. POSITIVES: The efficiency unit at Shamrock was spacious and mostly clean (some hair in the bathtub). Host was very friendly on our arrival and made us feel most welcome. Check in was quick and efficient. Beach is lovely. We chose Shamrock so we could walk to Owl's Head... More
