Our new favourite for a summer Muskoka resort! The Bryant family are busy everywhere, not only tending to everyone's questions and concerns, but also serving in the dining room, taking people out skiing, pontoon boat rides in the evening, even an ice cream trip into Port Carling. At many others resorts run by families, we have felt like outsiders. Returning...

We're so glad you enjoyed your week at the Shammy and we're glad you felt like family right away because we always feel like family is leaving on check out days. Thank you for the meals suggestions. We have made some changes to our breakfast fruits by adding a big bowl of fresh berries and we will look at the...

My 9 year old loves swimming and longed for a beach vacation. We searched for a long time and found this gem of a place! My husband and I and our two boys had a glorious summer. The boys learned water sports - kayaking, water skiing - and had a fantastic time tubing and on boat rides. The entire staff...

We are never sure who has more fun with the tubing and waterskiing - Tim or the kids! We're so glad you had such a great vacation and we'll look forward to seeing you again next summer!

We visited Shamrock Lodge last week and had a great time. It was our first trip with our two year old son and he was entertained at all hours of the day. We did not leave him with the helpful kid club staff too often, but when we did, they were very respectful of our wishes and comforted him when...

We hope you come back year after year and create many more family memories with us at the lodge. It's always fun for us to watch as the kids grow up year after year. Hope to see you again soon.

We are a family of four, including three- and five-year-old sons. We first came to Shamrock with trepidation as our reservation was based solely on TripAdvisor ratings, rather than a personal referral or two. We have made reservations for our sixth week next summer, and will look forward to it all year. Our boys talk about painting ceramics, watching the...

Shamrock Lodge is an all inclusive resort located on the shores of Lake Rosseau, Port Carling, Ontario. It is owned and operated by the Bryant family, who obviously love what they do. Their staff reflect the warm relationship the Bryant's share with their guests. We stayed in Pinewood, Unit 7, which was a large room with two queen beds and...

I loved this place. It's all inclusive (well not alcohol) and offers a kids club. So you don't have to worry about finding places to eat all the time or always having cash on you. There's always something for the kids to do while you sit on the beach and soak up the sun. The water isn't too deep off...

Our family (2 adults and boys 5 and 9) enjoyed the experience at Shamrock Lodge. Loved the fact that we could use the boats and kayaks any time, and my older son learned how to row. The lake was very clean, just deep enough (and warm, but then we were lucky!). Me and my husband loved the tubing (the boys...

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! It is nice that our property is a great size for kids to be able to have a little freedom but the parents can still keep a watchful eye because they are never far away. We hope to see you back again next summer!

Upon arrival, our room was not ready for us, we were greeted with a less then warm welcome including "we were not expecting you"! When we finally entered our room, we noticed that we did not have a coffee maker, cork screw and were supplied only plastic glasses. The beds were hard and uncomfortable. We used the amenities including a...

Our off-season months at the lodge are much better suited for quiet weekend getaways. Because we are known as a family beach resort, July and August are very busy with active families and lots of children able to fully utilize every aspect of the property with full enthusiasm. We strive to do our best for all of our guests and...
