The staff at this resort are fantastic, the food is delicious and the water sports are amazing. The fact that this resort isn't huge makes a big difference when travelling with kids. Our kids are 8 and 10 and we could let them have free reign of the place without worrying about them. They loved the freedom and we loved... More

I do not have one bad thing to say about this resort. The staff is AMAZING and our group of 14 never once heard the word, "no" from any of the staff. The food was fantastic, the entertainment was varied and really, really good and there was something for everyone to do which is good as we had a group... More

Hi Kari. Thank you so much for that wonderful review. We loved meeting all of your family and being able to help celebrate such a great anniversary. (The t-shirts were a highlight for me!) Hopefully we'll have the pleasure of having you all back again next year. Susan More

Many years ago we toke our kids to various family oriented family run lodges for summer vacations. The kids loved the water and outdoor activities and we enjoyed not having to cook and look after them continuously. Today there are very few such places for busy moms and dads. Shamrock is one of the exceptions. And they do an exemplary... More

We're so glad you were able to enjoy the service we provide at Shamrock Lodge. We really do hope that our guests feel like an extended part of our family. This (we hope) is what keeps so many families coming back year after year. And the best part is, we do all the cooking and cleaning! Hopefully we will see... More

We just returned from a week at the Shamrock Lodge with the kids (8,10,12). We have been to several family resorts and the Bryant Family (owners) do a wonderful job to make the vacation great especially for the kids. The owners Tim and Gary were great, running the water sports and teaching the kids water-skiing with great patience. The server... More

Our family of four had an awesome time at Shamrock Lodge this week. Our almost 4-year old and 9 month-old enjoyed the pool, beach, boat rides. The resort facilities, rooms and equipment are clean, comfortable, well maintained and safe for our little ones. We especially enjoyed the water trampoline, tubing, water skiing. We love that the boating activities are included... More

SUPERB!!! We were a group of 6 from Chicago and Shanghai ages 7-70. What a simply wonderful experience. As many others have said there is something for all ages. The setting ... the sloping lawn to the crystal clear lake with sandy bottom, shallow at first, then deep: the shore holding canoes and kayaks is marvelous. Accommodation is simple but... More

Really fabulous family resort, run by the Bryant family, who couldn't have been better hosts. Delicious food, great activities, able to waterski every day, kids club, lovely setting with beautiful gardens and gently shelving beach which our 2 yr old loved playing on. So much to do, but equally easy just to relax in the shade, or the sun, on... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had an incredible time. Three families stayed in different cabins. The main lodge room was clean and fairly spacious. It felt like a cottage but wasn't run down. Another family stayed in the Kelly House which was loft style and had a small gathering area where we could hang out (smaller than I expected).... More

Beautiful location, excellent service, stellar menu/food, warm cozy accommodation and keen attention to detail by a family dedicated to making each and every guests stay special. Couldn't have asked for nicer weather, a better view or lovelier sand/water. Thanks to the Bryant family for an unparalleled company retreat experience. Can't wait to return!

We really enjoyed our stay at Shamrock Lodge. We were travelling with another family, and all of our kids ate their meals at the Kids Club, giving the grown-ups some time to catch up with one another. The kids enjoyed the Club and the waterfront. We all enjoyed having easy access to canoes, kayaks, with no need to sign them... More
