We visited the Shamrock Lodge from 8/25/16 - 8/31/16 with out three children (12,11, & 5). All 5 of us had a fantastic time. We stayed in the Kelly house - great location and fit our needs perfectly. Everything was so well organized, from the activity schedule, kids club, meals, everything! The resort runs like a well oiled machine. The... More

We lucked out and had the entire resort to ourselves during our 2 night stay in September. The staff couldn't have been nicer and really treated us like family. The owner took us out on his own boat for a tour of the lake and Issie our waitress offered to watch our kids for an hour while we sat on... More

Such a great family vacation, I can't wait to go back. My 8 year old told me he was "summersick for Shamrock Lodge." I get it. Laid back, friendly staff, and beautiful surroundings - was like summer at the lake when I was a kid. And the kids club meant parents got a real vacation too. Good food, good company.... More

Again my extended family enjoyed our time at this special place where you are made to feel like family. Great staff, great food and waterfront. Ages in our group ranged from 7 to 70 and all had a super time. Appreciated the quickly arranged fire work display and the boat tour of the lake. How much did we enjoy Shamrock?...booked... More

Well the reviews of this place are spot on. I wish we had more time at the Shamrock and would have loved to have been there when the kids program was still running! The property is well maintained, everything clean and it retains a lovely Muskoka cottage vibe, perfect for a summer holiday. The beach, the amenities, the staff, accommodation... More

After a friend recommended Shamrock Lodge, 3 generations of our family met there for a personal celebration. It was exactly what we needed, the family and staff seem to have a gift for discerning what that is for all the guests. They were very accommodating with my food sensitivities. Lots of ways to get out on the water. The kids... More

We, six adults and two children, took a chance on late August weather and booked a week-long family stay at the Shamrock Lodge. We had stayed with the Bryant family in the early days of their ownership and operation of this historic property but that was a winter cross country ski experience. Thirty odd years later we relied on our... More

Loved our three night stay at Shamrock Lodge. The food was delicious. The staff was very friendly. My daughter enjoyed the waterskiing, swimming and the campfires. Also the games room and tennis were lots of fun. The Bryant family is very welcoming. We plan to return next year.

A fun filled relaxing Muskoka holiday. All inclusive, great food and friendly staff. Shamrock is family owned and operated which shows in everything they do. My family can't wait to go back again next year.

The food was to die for, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful as this was our first time there. The view from our room was beautiful and so relaxing for my husband and I. They were also very clean. My twin 10yr olds loved the trampoline and climber that was off the beach in the lake! Add on the... More
