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! Those with young children know what a diamond in the rough a family friendly place can be when looking to entertain the entire family; one where the kids would rather be hanging... More

Oh Sue.....thank you for all of that. You know we always love to see you and catch up. It's like a family member returning home from an extended vacation and not the other way around! Fingers crossed you can make it back in August! More

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

I spent 3 days at Shamrock Lodge, and it was a wonderful experience. The beautiful setting and wonderful staff allow for a relaxing time, even if it is filled with meetings! I hope that our team does not out grow the Shamrock, because we have an amazing time, every year!

Words cannot describe the experience of being in a place where the hosts were so welcoming. The food that was served was by far the best I have had in many years. The lodging was so comfortable, haven't slept like that in ages. The scenic location and the late night star watching from the docks was just unbelievable. And to... More

This was my third visit to Shamrock as part of a company retreat and it was excellent. The service is always genuine, thoughtful and prompt. I can't say enough about how wonderful the people who work there are. This family run lodge in Muskoka is on a beautiful lakefront property (perfect for swimming) and offers lots to do including shuffle... More

This is my third year at my company corporate retreat. The food is top of the line and the staff is wonderful. I think next time i will be going to visit with my family. I encourage anyone to visit and they will not be disappointed.

We still have some available accommodation if you want to bring your family this summer. I know your group has a lot of fun during your corporate meetings but it would be nice for you to experience the property without having to attend a meeting! Hope to see you this summer! More

I just got back from the fourth annual HomeStars company offsite at Shamrock Lodge -- my first time attending. For a corporate retreat of 35-50 people (or fewer), this was the perfect fit. Not a stuffy corporate feel, but quite the contrary, a relaxed and "homey" feel despite its location on one of the prestige lakes in Muskoka. It ticks... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your first of many visits to the lodge. The Homestars group is always a great group to host and it is wonderful to watch the success of your company grow as the number of delegates grows each year. We are already looking forward to seeing you back next year! More

I have been going to Shamrock Lodge annually with a number of girls for the last 18 years and I must admit, it never disappoints. The staff are welcoming, the accomodations are inviting, the food is delicious and the overall feel of the Lodge is one of comfort. I would strongly recommend Shamrock for families and couples alike. Always lots... More
