We were in Pine Lodge no.1, a great, spacious room with a balcony that we
really enjoyed! We had a box seating there to watch all the activities that were offered!
All staff were super friendly and accommodated anything we asked for.
The location of Shamrock right by the beautiful lake is picture perfect. Another
thing worth mentioning is that there were always enough beach chairs for all
guests.
We will be back for sure!

This is our first year at Shamrock as a young family. We stayed for four nights but it wasn't long enough!! We loved how intimate and laid back the lodge was compared to some of the other options in the area. The staff are super friendly and accommodated our requests. The kids club was very worthwhile, even for our daughter of only 1.5 years old. She often had one on one supervision to play on the playgrounds while my husband and I enjoyed the many water sports. We are already planning on going back!!

Visited recently for the August long weekend. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They had activities to do all day long and entertainment every night. The food was excellent and the menu was different every day.

I strongly recommend. Great for a family vacation.

We left Canada in 2004 for Europe, and have now lived in China for 6+ years. Every summer we need a "Canadian fix", which involves many things, and on the top of that list Shamrock has been a pillar of each of the past 4 summers. This place is as close to perfect as you will ever find - of course the setting and location are splendid, no doubt... but what really makes it unique is the warm and personal interaction of the staff and management. My children (10 and 12 now) worship this place and all who work there, almost like a second home. A variety of activities are available everyday, which can often include support and participation (in organizing things) from the guests as well, which gives it that unique "inclusive" approach - you feel like you matter! And how great is that for kids? I can't imagine a family/management team who understands what makes them successful more than this group - July 7, 2018 cannot arrive quickly enough for us ! See you in 11 months !

Steven, thank you so much for that wonderful review. It really does warm our hearts to see the same faces return year after year and truly become like an extension of our family.

Your review means a great deal to us, especially the Bryant family and we will look forward to seeing you on July 7th!

We stayed at Shamrock Lodge for a week in July. It was our fifth year in a row and we have already booked for 2018. Does that say it all? Tim, Gary, Susan and all of the staff make this a special place, one our entire family looks forward to visiting each year. Other reviewers have accurately praised the accommodations, food, service and kids' club. I will add that the Shamrock is not a home away from home; it is more like a neighbourhood away from home. The Bryant family and the Shamrock team set the tone, and the guests meet their enthusiasm. There is always someone - staff or guest - there to help a novice water skier, help you climb up the water trampoline, or share s'mores around the camp fire.

Room Tip: Pinewood, Kelly House and Beechwood all have lake views.

We love that so many people feel that the Shammy is a home away from home. That is exactly how we want you to feel. We always look forward to seeing you and your family and we look forward to seeing you next year - all four of you for the whole week!
