we stayed for two nights but we wish we could have stayed way longer. the motel not only has gorgeous views of mountains but also has a welcoming and clean environment. on the first night, we watched the sunset on the dock in their provided chairs. on the second night, we rented one of their canoes & watched the sunset...

This place has the most unprofessional manager I have ever encountered. He was rude and completely unwilling to work with a reservation that was made over a month in advance. He actually hung up on me as I was trying to work with him. Plenty of other places to stay in Long Lake, stay away from this one.

We stay there only one night but if we had time we would have stay one more day. It is a little bit like doing camping but in a simple and clean room. Yes the motel is old, but it is clean and bed are comfortable, it is very quiet at night and we had a good night sleep. The... More

My family of 4 stayed for 2 nights at the Shamrock and had a lovely time there. We enjoyed the beach and view of Long Lake. It was also a great base for exploring other Adirondack lakes (we kayaked at nearby Lows Lake, which was a 35 minute drive away).

A few weeks ago was the Long Lake Winter Festival so we booked a two night stay. As usual the room was spotless and everything was just perfect. The owners are ever so warm and welcoming. Next morning we were up and out early to hike Owls Head Fire Tower in the freezing cold and snow. Came back showered relaxed,... More

I recently stayed at the Shamrock. The owners were friendly, the room was comfortable and spotlessly clean!! And the rates were reasonable too! It was perfect, as I was in the area to do some fall fishing and bird photography!!! I would definitely stay here again!!

Please know the proprietors are so incredibly kind-that they make you feel like you are guests in their home. Everything you could imagine to do outdoors we did- fishing, swimming, (waboba tournaments in the swimming area) boating/kayaking, paddle-boarding, soccer games in the courtyard...its so relaxing and peaceful. Huge bass and tons of perch! Be certain to make the evening walk... More

I too, felt that there was a lot of loving care that went into the cabins, grounds and lake front. The room was adequate, wifi was available. We were in the are to take photos so not in the room much at all. It worked for us.

We stayed in efficiency unit #9 for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary. The beach, soft sand, dock and chairs provide an excellent area for R&R. The staff is friendly and the grounds well maintained. Did I mention the beach is amazing. Tonight while sitting by the lake enjoying the setting sun we were entertained by a loon. We will... More
