Tim and Susan made our time at Shamrock a very memorable one. They made sure to know everyone by the end of our short stay, they assisted us in planning our team building activities, guaranteed us exclusive use of the lodge and went above and beyond our expectations. What a great place to hold your team event: great venue, great food, great service and great times.

Would recommend Shamrock to anyone planning a corporate meeting.

Can't wait to bring my wife and daughter back to Shamrock Lodge

Thanks, Chris, for all of those kind words. We really enjoyed working with and getting to know your group. It was nice that we could be a part of your last retreat together and are extremely happy that everyone felt the same about their experience at Shamrock. We loved having you all here and would love to see you all back again.

What a fabulous experience it was going to Shamrock Lodge! My parents took me there as a child during the winter months so it was kind of fun to come back as an adult! I was absolutely blown away by the amount of care that was taken to make sure that all of us were comfortable, fed and happy! The food was homemade and absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for a fantastic stay! Will definately be heading back for a longer stay!

We booked a corporate retreat at Shamrock Lodge last month and I personally will be going back. Everything about the place was amazing. The hospitality that we enjoyed, the warmth and appreciation that we received from Tim and the rest of the staff was unparalled to anything I've experienced. And the food....omg...homemade, delicious, perfectly cooked. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the lake was very picturesque, and lots to do to keep you busy. Just go...you won't regret it!

Room Tip: Try to get the lodge right on the water!

Had a one night stay for our corporate meeting and I can't wait to go back with my husband and our friends. A package deal, this resort has so many things to do and all are "included" in the daily rate. The food is absolutely 5 star and the service second to none. We took advantage of the games room, pool & hot tub and ran out of time for the sauna. The grounds were beautiful in the fall. Tim took us for a guided tour of the lake and this was topped off with a bonfire in the evening and a comfortable bed. The staff seemed to anticipate our every need and then added the "family" touch. Can't Thank you enough. I'll be back.........

We appreciate the nice things you mentioned and will continue to do the same for hopefully more corporate groups. Shamrock is home away from home and we all try hard to give everyone that feeling!!!

After attending my company's team building event recently at Shamrock Lodge, I can understand why this location has been selected to hold events on three different occasions for our company.

The location is in beautiful Muskoka. The food is amazing, the staff was always helpful and incredibly responsive to every request, no matter how big or small. They are willing to do whatever they can to make your experience the best it can be and they never stop smiling.

The various rooms are spacious, very clean and most have wonderful views of the Lake. Our hosts the Bryant family offered boat rides and various other activities for all of our team to enjoy. The property is spacious making it easy for those who want some quiet time to find a cozy place to read a book, while those who want to remain active have plenty of activities to entertain themselves.

I would recommend this location to all those who want to get away to beautiful Muskoka. The Bryant family make all of their guests feel like they are staying with friends and family instead of a hotel. The facility is a great place for a family vacation and it was perfect for our corporate team. I look forward to going back either for future Corporate events or simply to book a room for my family to enjoy.

My family and I love your review. I have told all our staff what you said about them too. They really appreciate it. Companies that choose us for their retreat or meeting spot get the Exclusive Use of the Lodge along with personalized service that goes along way in todays world. The bigger Resorts are very nice, but it is hard for those properties to make people feel like they are at home or at the cottage. The personal touch again is so important and of course the location and attention to details too. We are hoping that more companies will give us a try and see if they like the smaller and more intimate feeling that Shamrock gives each person while they are here. Your review will hopefully encourage other companies to give us a try, thanks for all the nice things you said about us. Sincerely, Tim Bryant and family and staff..........

We are Senior couple who have had 3 mini stays at Shamrock, we live fairly close by
and are somewhat hampered for travelling because of my husbands mobility issues.
Here we are relaxed, well looked after and enjoy every minute.
We enjoywatching young families having an incredible time, this is a real family oriented
vacation spot.
The Bryants and their staff are the BEST!!!!

Room Tip: We prefer Pinewoods, all beautiful views of the lake, and we prefer the lower units
