My husband and I stayed 2 nights over Canadian Thanksgiving weekend 2020.  The property has a stunning view of the lake.  This is a family (with kids) resort. There are 4 channels on the tv (3 sports and 1 kids). DIY entertainment (leave the resort for hikes, boat cruises and lunch). The wait staff all seemed very new (beverages not refilled, having to ask for basic condiments like ketchup and sugar erc).  The "all-inclusive" food was very bland and often cold at breakfast and dinner (possibly another issue with staff) and includes coffee, oj (at breakfast) and water but does not include soda.  The corking fee for byo wine at dinner is $17.50. We left the resort on our 2nd evening for a fantastic dinner at a local restaurant Richwells which was 5*. Our room did not get cleaned at all during our stay - so towels and toilet paper never replaced or replenished, despite signs in the room suggesting otherwise. We were in a main floor room, after reserving a top floor room. There was a rambunctious family above us, which we had hoped to avoid with an opposite stay arrangement.  We had cronic smokers to our balcony window side, which meant we couldn't leave the balcony screen door open as the smell may have generated the resorts $200 cleaning fee for smokers. There was a fridge in our room. No coffee machine or kettle in the room. The microwave and ice machine are in the common area dining room.  Guests can use the microwave and can request ice. Coffee is available from the kitchen upon request. Every Thanksgiving the owers host a large group of family, which we were told were not coming this year due to the low guest numbers required for Covid. There was a large (for Covid times) group of about 15-20 people that seemed to be very comfortable and were abrupt with the other guests.  They were seated together in tables of 10 and 2 x 4. I would not suggest staying at the resort when there is this type of large group, as they tax the limited staff resources.

Thanks to Covid-19 we got to discover the gem that is Shamrock Lodge. From our first phone conversation with Gary we expected this experience to be a good one. Turns out it wasn't good, it was amazing. All the staff, Su/Gary/Tim/Chris, and all the wait staff treat everyone like family. Even without children programming this summer, my daughter enjoyed the canoe, paddle boat & paddle board. And she really loved tubing. Tim is a fantastic and patient coach. The food was fantastic. Shamrock Lodge has activities for all and also provides a great quiet place to relax and recharge. Roasting marshmallows at night was another highlight for everyone as well as the sunset pontoon ride. And let's not forget the Friday night fireworks. As much as it pained us not being able to visit our out of province family this summer, we left Shamrock having made another family in Muskoka. We don't write many reviews, only when we're extremely impressed but this review is more than warranted. Thank you all at the resort for accepting us in the family. Looking forward to next summer's stay. Fire in the hole. Chantal / Peter & Lauren Ash

Thank you to the Bryant’s and staff for your very special lodge which allowed us to create important memories for summer 2020. Whether it’s the loon, the breathtaking view, a kind word, a good morning, an amazing meal, a perfect room or an unforgettable waterski tube or pontoon boat around the lake, the owners and staff know how magic is created. It’s why the kids begged to return to Shamrock for the 4th time and for the second time this summer. And it’s why we were so excited to share in the magic by bringing along 2 sets of very close friends. Thank you team Shammy!
