We stayed here for the May long weekend. Two adults and four kids fit nicely in the Treehouse. Right away we were treated like family visiting. They made an effort to learn everyone's names, constantly asking if we needed anything, all about service. Really nice atmosphere, with other families and young kids about. Boat rides, bonfires, pool, and beach -... More

We stayed here for the Family Day weekend and had a great time. We were looking for a place that was along snow mobile trails so we could go sledding over the weekend. Although not directly off of a trail, it was a quick scoot down the road to one. We stayed in the Tree House (which has recently been... More

We're glad you enjoyed your weekend despite the -38C temperatures. You are brave souls to snowmobile in that! We would love to have you back in the summertime. Our meal hours in the summer are set from 6:00 to 6:30 as well to work around the activities we offer in the evenings for kids and adults. Call us any time... More

After clean and comfortable, service is what matters most to me. Shamrock Lodge met all my expectations. Our cabin was bright and spacious, and my kids took advantage of the pool and hot tub after a day of sledding. Breakfast and dinner was included in our package and although portions were sufficient for me, they did not satisfy my male... More

Thanks very much for taking the time to post a review about your weekend. We certainly wish we could have made it warmer but it was a fun weekend, regardless. We would love to see you and your family back again and just remind us about the meal sizes next time. We can always find an extra portion hiding somewhere... More

Just got back from a wonderful Family Day weekend at Shamrock. We didn't know what to expect but we couldn't have been happier. Even the -30 degree weather didn't stop us from cross country skiing on the beautiful trails, skating on the lake and toboganning. My son even got a snowmobile ride as a birthday gift from Tim, one of... More

We're glad you were able to enjoy the Winter Wonderland despite frigid temperatures! We loved meeting your family and helping Thomas celebrate his birthday! We're looking forward to seeing you back again next winter for another fun-filled Family Day Weekend. Maybe next year it will be warm enough to enjoy a bonfire and some S'Mores!! Susan More

We visited Shamrock for the first time over the Christmas holidays and had a fantastic experience. My kids ages 10 and 7 loved it and enjoyed all of the outdoor activities and indoor pool. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake and was a close walk to the lodge. We were very well taken care of our entire... More

Celebrated the 2015 New Year at this awesome place! It was amazing! Probably the best New Year party over the last several years! Room was clean and warm. Very cozy lodge with fireplace. Indoor pool is big and deep enough. Sauna could be warmer, but it didn't stop me from jumping into snow after sitting there. Food was excellent. Special... More

We loved having your family here over New Years! And although we may not have partaken in your sauna ritual (from sauna to snow bank to sauna) we certainly would love to have you back again next year and watch you do it all over again! All the best to you and your family and we hope to see you... More

We had never heard of the Shamrock Lodge before until a friend invited us to join them. We are always a little nervous travelling with our 7 year old who has dealt with severe food allergies her entire life. We are not able to just "pack up and go", there is always the fear of her not being able to... More
