The lakeview suite was modern, spacious, newly re-decorated and had a great view of one of the prettiest mountain lakes I've ever seen. All staff at the hotel were consistently friendly and helpful. The nightly turn-down service along with a daily, morning newspaper at the door were all surprise touches that made the experience special. Breakfasts at the Lake Grill... More

We arrived at The Shore Lodge the same day we flew home from Sedona, AZ. We weren't ready to be done with vacation so we went from sunny and 75° to 32° white powder perfection! When we arrived we were greeted by two gentlemen who quickly confirmed our room reservation and showed us into the lodge. The gal at the... More

I love love love the shore lodge's spa The Cove. We try to go every 6-9 months for 4 years now. We love McCall and come often. We have stayed at the Shore Lodge a number of times and everytime customer service in the front desk seems to be getting worse everytime. We enjoy eating at the narrows. However the... More

Without minimizing the great lake front location and very comfortable, recently upgraded rooms, I was most impressed with the staff. Everyone I met made me feel like an honored guest and a part of the Shore Lodge family. Smiles, a "can-do" attitude and friendly advice make Shore Lodge a great find. Special thanks to Brian, David, Trisha, Lindie, Ruben, Amber... More

I've been staying at the Shore Lodge for the past 4 years during winter carnival. Years 1-3, I was equally impressed with the lodgings as well as the customer service and hospitality of the staff. This year, 2014, was the worst experience ever. The staff was rude upon check-in, informed us that they couldn't shuttle us to and from the... More

This was my first visit to the resort and I could not have been more impressed. I loved the lakeside location and the resort itself is beautiful. Although I did not stay long enough to take full advantage of their spa and other amenities, I did have an outstanding meal in the Narrows Restaurant and I would highly recommend the... More

This was my second trip to stay in the lodge beautifully situated on Payette Lake. Setting is right on the lake. Be sure to get a lake front room. Staff is friendly, food is tasty and well presented. Oh, did I mention it's right on the lake!!!!

Simply Majestic! What an amazing place to visit in the fall! The change of the leave colors, the smell of the wood buring stoves in the early evening. The sunsets accross the lake, The cool night air. The town is small but just the right. Walk from the shops to the resturants downtown. Take a drive around the lake. I... More

My family returned to Shore Lodge as a Thanksgiving weekend getaway after our first delightful stay 3 years ago. We again found the food excellent, love the open-beam feel of the place, and of course the exquisite lake views are the centerpiece. These 5-star elements are much dampened by the inexperienced host staff--service throughout remained uneven, unenthusiastic and generally not... More

Shore Lodge was a GREAT place for Christmas Brunch last year and we plan to do it again! Wonderful food and atmosphere! Just can't beat it in McCall! Presentation was beyond expectations and very flavorful. Wait staff was right there for anything you wanted!
