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.

Just returned home from a fantastic 3 night stay at Shamrock Lodge. This was our first time visiting the resort and we have already reserved again for next summer. We were a group of 14 - 2 grand parents, 7 adults, and 7 kids ages 11-17, and every single one of us enjoyed our stay. Great recreational activities (boats, tubing,...

I just spent my first time at the resort with my daughter and I was delighted by the warm welcome and the real Muskoka setting of the resort. The family members who run the place are warm and genuinely friendly. They make sure to know everybody's name. We stayed in a cabin that was just great for the two of...

What a fantastic place to enjoy a few days away with a friend. Shamrock has a beautiful clear lake with sandy bottom to cool off in and lots of water toys to play with. We took out the paddle boards, kayaks and went tubing for the first time, what a rush. Shamrock Lodge is like no other as the staff,...
