Many years ago we toke our kids to various family oriented family run lodges for summer vacations. The kids loved the water and outdoor activities and we enjoyed not having to cook and look after them continuously. Today there are very few such places for busy moms and dads. Shamrock is one of the exceptions. And they do an exemplary job in excelling at keeping the kids involved, entertained and well fed during the entire time, even on wet days. Shamrock is a "lodge" and as such one cannot expect a level of luxury that is associated with luxury brand name resorts in the Muskokas. Their web site (it does not do justice to what is offered) and the pricing associated with the rooms appear to be "high" but not when consideration is given to the amount of personalized service, customized activities for kids, facilities made available, and high quality of food offered to all guests. As many other reviewers have noted, the rooms are simple yet practical and always clean. If you're looking for a place that treats you and your kids like a family member and makes your stay a warm and fulfilling experience this is it.
