How on earth can I find the words? We had our wedding here sept 12. The perfect sunshine and Autumn colours were more than we could have asked for. All the planning was via email with Susan. She went the extra mile to make things perfect and easy. Catered to our meal requests and allergies of guests. She was on hand the entire wedding day to ensure everything was cared for. Cake and flowers received, chairs placed, tables set.... no drama! We had lots of family travelling from overseas and so stayed the entire week at Shamrock. All the staff were so good to the kids. Tim took people out boating every day.... he even took my nephews out fishing and when they succeeded at water skiing he had certificates made up to present to them! Every little detail was thought of. Our wedding... our entire week was incredible. There were so many activities on the water and muskoka chairs everywhere to relax and read a book with a view.
Wedding... it is the perfect venue for a smaller, intimate affair. We had 50 people and it was perfection. Susan paid attention to every detail and helped to create an entire wedding day schedule. Hair and makeup can be done on site so don't stress about choosing a venue further away from the city. Oh and a bonfire after our dance! This place is amazing!!! Amazing staff, food, venue.

I know it was stressful for you having to plan a wedding entirely by email but it was a beautiful day for a beautiful wedding. We really enjoyed having the extra few days to spend getting to know you and all of your well-traveled guests from all over the world.

We wish you all the best and hope to see you back for a visit someday!

Shamrock Lodge provides an excellent getaway for adults and kids alike. My family enjoys it so much we have been back 5 times and the kids always hate departure day.

From the beautiful setting on wonderful lake Rosseau, you can choose from a variety of activities, including kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, swimming (lake or pool), tennis, table tennis, shuffle board, pontoon rides, jetski rentals, etc etc. Or simply sit on the dock and relax with a coffee/beer/wine while the kids enjoy the activities at the Kids club.

All meals are included (and delicious) and take a lot of the fuss and hassle of feeding a family away from parents, allowing us to spend more time enjoying the resort. Also, Port Carling is a very short drive away, providing access to a variety of shops, bars, restaurants, ice cream parlors and the LCBO!

The Bryants and their wonderful staff are extremely welcoming and will do their best to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

We're already looking forward to our next visit to Shamrock Lodge!

Room Tip: The adjoining Driftwood cabins are a great option when traveling with another family

Thanks so much, Ed. We always enjoy having your family back and watching the kids enjoy the lodge like it's their second home.

See you soon!

We were there Sept 8-10 2017 for a wedding although chilly, it was the perfect getaway and lovely wedding destination. The staff were amazing and felt like family. The servers were amazing and attentive and the food was DELICIOUS. The grounds are breath taking and there were enough fun activities to pass the time. Loved the fire pit circle as well. Honestly so in love with this place. Thinking about making this a family yearly trip!

Room Tip: pick a room facing the lake front

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!!
