My 9 year old loves swimming and longed for a beach vacation. We searched for a long time and found this gem of a place! My husband and I and our two boys had a glorious summer. The boys learned water sports - kayaking, water skiing - and had a fantastic time tubing and on boat rides. The entire staff... More

We visited Shamrock Lodge last week and had a great time. It was our first trip with our two year old son and he was entertained at all hours of the day. We did not leave him with the helpful kid club staff too often, but when we did, they were very respectful of our wishes and comforted him when... More

We are a family of four, including three- and five-year-old sons. We first came to Shamrock with trepidation as our reservation was based solely on TripAdvisor ratings, rather than a personal referral or two. We have made reservations for our sixth week next summer, and will look forward to it all year. Our boys talk about painting ceramics, watching the... More

Shamrock Lodge is an all inclusive resort located on the shores of Lake Rosseau, Port Carling, Ontario. It is owned and operated by the Bryant family, who obviously love what they do. Their staff reflect the warm relationship the Bryant's share with their guests. We stayed in Pinewood, Unit 7, which was a large room with two queen beds and... More

I loved this place. It's all inclusive (well not alcohol) and offers a kids club. So you don't have to worry about finding places to eat all the time or always having cash on you. There's always something for the kids to do while you sit on the beach and soak up the sun. The water isn't too deep off... More

Our family (2 adults and boys 5 and 9) enjoyed the experience at Shamrock Lodge. Loved the fact that we could use the boats and kayaks any time, and my older son learned how to row. The lake was very clean, just deep enough (and warm, but then we were lucky!). Me and my husband loved the tubing (the boys... More

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! It is nice that our property is a great size for kids to be able to have a little freedom but the parents can still keep a watchful eye because they are never far away. We hope to see you back again next summer! More

Upon arrival, our room was not ready for us, we were greeted with a less then warm welcome including "we were not expecting you"! When we finally entered our room, we noticed that we did not have a coffee maker, cork screw and were supplied only plastic glasses. The beds were hard and uncomfortable. We used the amenities including a... More

Our off-season months at the lodge are much better suited for quiet weekend getaways. Because we are known as a family beach resort, July and August are very busy with active families and lots of children able to fully utilize every aspect of the property with full enthusiasm. We strive to do our best for all of our guests and... More

This was my second trip to Shamrock with my daughter Bella, my brother and sister in law and their three kids. I can't say enough about the efforts of Tim on the boat teaching the kids to water ski. Credit as well to all the kids club counsellors especially Emily for her waterskiing help getting Bella up for the first... More

I have been visiting The Shamrock Lodge every August for the past 11-years with my husband and two daughters. Fell in love with this vacation spot since day-one!

This was my fourth year coming to Shamrock on our annual company retreat. It was a fantastic visit once again. The staff are the best. They are the most accommodating, friendly and helpful. The rooms are kept clean and comfortable. The facilities are in top notch condition. I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a Muskoka getaway with... More
