“Girls Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Last weekend Myself and 5 other friends..visited Shamrock Lodge for first time. The Staff were amazing and quite a accommodating, the food was fabulous, the accommodations were great...It was the best way for 6 mothers/wives to unwind and feel that we could relax. I HIGHLY recommend this lodge for those who are looking to getaway with their families or you just want to have your own Girls Getaway.... Thank you to the Bryant family and their hospitality you will be definitely seeing us again.

From the Crazy Ladies of Callander Ontario.

We are very happy to hear your Girls Weekend Getaway was a success. We have a few other groups of Ladies that come each year for the same reasons. The Tree House cabin is perfect for a small number of people. Hopefully we can host you Ladies again. I will pass on the nice comments you made to our staff. On behalf of my family and staff we thank you for taking the time to write a reiview so nice on the Trip Advisor web site. This will hopefully help us attract more groups who are looking for that special time and place to get away..... Tim Bryant..

Mid-winter escape from southern Ontario, warm room, great food and service and on top of that fresh snow that made everything white, still and beautiful. Port Carling Winterfest was fun, bought a painting at a local gallery supporting Grandmothers for Africa and enjoyed x-country right from the lodge.

Many thanks to all the staff who made for a perfect winter get away!

A very nice and warm review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your winter getaway. Port Carling is a pretty little town any time of year. Hopefully more people will come to Muskoka to enjoy what it has to offer in the winter. It is a winter wonderland. Thanks again for your nice comments about our rooms and food we appreciate it very much. On behalf of our staff and family have a great rest of the winter and hope to see you again in the future...

My boyfriend and I spent Thanksgiving long weekend at the Shamrock Lodge. The property and serene setting are even more beautiful in person. The grounds are immaculate, the buildings are well maintained and the food divine. The lake was clean and clear ( you could see the bottom easily) and the surroundings quiet. This lakefront Lodge is charming and luxurious equally. The Bryant family and their staff are warm and friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay memorable. Lots to do and see.

My husband and I were looking for a place to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and came across The Shamrock Lodge on Trip Advisor. Although it was off season, we went ahead and booked it.

What a great choice it was!! We loved every minute of our mini get-away. The lodge has a wonderful, warm, cozy feel to it and the cabin we stayed in (Kelly House) was amazing. The Bryant family are wonderful people that truly want you to enjoy your stay. They care very deeply about their guests and bend over backwards to make sure you are comfortable during your stay. You really feel like a part of their family. Tim even took us on a private boat ride to show us around the beautiful lake.

The meals were excellent and the staff are just as wonderful. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked another stay with our whole family for next summer so our kids can enjoy The Shamrock Lodge as much as we did.

Even though we read that the Shamrock Lodge is an amazing place to come to in the summer....if you are looking for a Lodge up north in the off season to enjoy a quiet get-away, we highly recommend The Shamrock Lodge. The Bryants make sure that you get just as much enjoyment out of staying at their Lodge in the off season as you do in the summer.

Thank you very much to the Bryants and the staff for making our 10 year wedding anniversary a wonderful experience. We will recommend your beautiful lodge to everyone we know. We can't wait to come back with our kids next summer.

Thank you very much Colleen for your nice review. Sometimes when people go away they like to have more people around. Since you came during the week and things were very quiet we were glad to hear you enjoyed you selves so much. And it was my pleasure to take you two on a tour of beautiful Lake Rosseau, I try to make sure who ever stays here gets a tour of the Lake. Their are some beautiful things to see and the cottages are amazing.......We look forward to your stay with the kids and again thanks for using Trip Advisor. Alot of people use Trip Advisor as a reference for their vacations. Sincerely, Tim Bryant....

We visited Shamrock Lodge for the first time this summer, and had a wonderful time. My husband and I loved the cozy, caring atmosphere (the owners actually care, and go out of their way to make sure you are having fun and are comfortable), the cottage (Kelly House), and the food. Our kids loved the water, the Kids Klub (including the ice cream boat cruise), and the magic show on our final night. We were especially impressed with how well the chef, sous-chef, and all the kitchen staff handled our son's food allergies (four anaphylactic allergies). We highly recommend Shamrock Lodge!!

We had a great time at Shamrock Lodge! Clean, comfortable rooms, camp fires, paddle boarding, tubing, kayaks, water trampoline, sandy beach with shallow water and the awesome lily pad were all first rate! The food was homey, varied and plentiful if not perfect each time. Emily made our meals very enjoyable as well as our pontoon boat tour. We have already booked for next year at a different time though because they definitely are winding down during Labour Day weekend and I feel we missed out on some activities and entertainment that we will enjoy next year.

We are so happy to read this great review. Thank you for taking the time to let others know how we did. Labour Day weekend we do tend to wind down. During the summer months we have our Kids Klub that runs all day as well as evening entertainment and so much more. We are excited to see that you will be back to fully enjoy our summer programs.

We have never had a more enjoyable and relaxing holiday as we did at Shamrock Lodge, we all can't wait to return including our 2 boys, aged 9 and 12. There was so much to do or so little to do - it's up to you and the Byrants are so welcoming that you feel at home during your whole stay. I had thought the reviews I had read before going sounded a bit too good to be true - they're not, it really is that good and more! The food was always fabulous, the staff always brilliant, the surroundings always beautiful. Thank you to everyone at Shamrock for making this a holiday that may well mean all future holidays not taken at Shamrock will just not compare.
