The view was amazing from our balcony. The room was rustic but clean and very spacious and I slept well. I made use the hot tub and pool facilities and it too was well maintained and comfortable. It was winter and there was a ton of snow and my colleague took advantage of the snowshoeing and X-country ski trails. The food was far too plentiful and tasty. However the service was bar none the charm of the Shamrock. It is run by the Bryant family and their staff who were so hospitable and helpful that I felt like I belonged within hours. In fact they even boosted my car at the end of my stay as it would not start.

I imagine that the summer would be even more lovely with the water rippling...perhaps another time.

I have used the Shamrock for 10+ years for corporate retreats, and just stayed there for a family winter weekend. It was great to be home! Tim and his team always do a fantastic job, and this past weekend was no different.

One of the reasons I like The Shamrock so much is that it is about family hosting family…even when it's a business meeting. It is small and intimate, and the service is personal, warm and fantastic. Our business meetings almost always meant we had the place to ourselves, and so we didn't get lost in a huge facility and we didn't have to share with other groups. Our group was the focus and we had privacy when we needed it, and great service when we needed that. Even when there was another group there, we had everything we needed.

My recent experience with my family was just as special. And it was just the winter wonderland getaway we wanted.

A bit late writing this... We stayed at Shamrock Lodge over the New Year as a corporate retreat for my husband and a couple fellow coworkers, as well as we had our families with us. The staff can't be beat at the lodge! Tim and his family welcomed us like we were part of theirs, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our family stayed in the Treehouse, which we also used as the base for my husbands meetings. It was beautiful, large and clean. The meals were excellent - kudos to the chefs! There were plenty of activities for the children including ice skating, tobogganing, cross country skiing, swimming, games room and more. New Years was a fantastic night with a lovely meal, dj and dancing, and fireworks. Also a fire for the children to roast marshmallows. I could go on and on as I really can't say enough good things about Shamrock Lodge! We will definitely be back (hopefully in the summer), and I would recommend this lodge to anyone.

We loved meeting your family over New Year's and glad everyone had such a great time. This is one of the best winters in a long time and it's nice when we get to share it with such great people. Hopefully we'll see you back in the summer so you can enjoy both seasons at Shamrock.

Hope to see you again soon!

Had a great Northern New Years. Weather was very cold but hospitality was great. Lots to do indoor swimming pool, hot tub, ice rink on the lake, even tried cross country skiing. Meals where fantastic and the Lodge very warm and comfortable. We had a great time at the New Years party and dance complete with fireworks on the lake. Looking forward to going back.

I would recommend this lodge to anyone that is looking for a nice peaceful heaven away from home. The whole staff are friendly, the location is clean and the food is great. We wend there in winter and they had set-up an abundance of activities for the kids. Thanks to Tim and his staff for this great vacation!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on my family's Resort. I have always said treat people the way you would want to be treated. And that is what we do here at the Shamrock. I have said it many times, Shamrock is a home away from home. Getting to know people on a first name basis, and actually getting to know your guests. Where are they from and what do they do for a living. This is the nice thing about owning a small and intimate place like Shamrock. We enjoy what we do and are glad to hear our guests can see it and feel the warmth of the Welcome. Hope to see you all again soon. Sincerely, Tim Bryant and family and staff.......

Tim and Susan were the most amazing host. Their staff and them went out of their way to make our corporate function a fun event. The atmosphere is warm. It felt like we were staying with friends and family. I cannot say enough about their hospitality! The homemade food was AMAZING!! To top it off, Tim gave us a boat ride on the beautiful Lake Rosseau and we ended up at the camp fire. It was great day!
You have to go and experience Shamrock Lodge, they really know how to treat people!!
