Wonderful family run (three generations) motel right on the lake. It was snowy when we arrived so beachfront was not our need. However we loved the motel room which was all newly renovated. Good heat and plumbing. Frig and TV. Wifi! Our cell phone worked fine. The owner was delightful. We will return- want to try an efficiency.

My husband and I needed an over night stay on the way to Lake Placid and was happy to find the Shamrock. Owners were super nice and gave us tips on things to do in Lake Placid. Happy we stopped and look forward to coming back!

Great facility, clean, friendly, they take good care of the property. Dock/lake/view is beautiful. Will visit again! Rooms are small but super clean and comfortable. Fire pit and lawn games are nice. Stayed in the motel part but would like a cabin next time.

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).

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
