Just spent 10 (11) glorious days at the Shamrock with my husband and teenage daughters, plus a friend. This marks our 9th year traveling to the rustic family-owned lodge, that is a master at pampering the guests. Nestled in the woods with its own private beach, the “Shammy” has become a tradition for my family. Traveling from Buffalo is a breeze when attention is paid to time of departure (at dawn or dusk) to avoid heavy traffic often found on the 400. Strong friendships have been made over the years, such that we all attempt to re-book the same week for the following year and count the days until we can resume our bonfire chats, paddle-boarding on the lake, kayaking, water-skiing, moonlight cruises, and those competitive evening games of “Password!” Owners' Tim Bryant and his brother Gary, each bring something different to the lodge. Gary his attention to detail, and Tim the social director, work together to make the vacation experience relaxed, fun, and comfortable for everyone. Teens, tots, adults, grandparents; all are made to feel like they have come “home” to their summer cottage. With guests coming from all over the world to experience the Muskoka lifestyle, you will find yourself fitting in just perfectly, whether you want peace and quiet, or an exciting day in the water. And the best part for me_someone else does the cooking; three squares a day, delicious options for everyone. The kitchen works hard to prepare foods for those with any allergies, while offering gourmet dinner selections each night and “kid-friendly” foods as well. And probably my fondest memories: watching Tim teach first-timers how to water-ski and then, sometimes after multiple attempts, the look of sheer joy and pride after mastering the task. I could probably write a book about my wonderful adventures at The Shamrock Lodge, but better for you to call now and make a reservation for your next vacation. But beware, you will be hooked for life!
