We took this vacation a year-ago and forgot to rate this trip. This is a great place to take the kids. In Idaho with the mountains and beautiful lake. Shore Lodge is right on the lake and has all the water toys. Our room open up too the lake. The lake is clear as glass. They have hiking in the... More

We were on our way back to Vancouver from Arizona & had to stop to ask for some directions due to some road work. Two people we spoke with highly recommended taking a longer detour in order to take in the fabulous sights along the way to McColl, Idaho. We were going to stay at a Hotel but as we... More

Great mountain lodge lobby, but our room was a throw back to a late 1980"s Ritz-Carlton guest room. Unfortunately, everything in the room appeared to be from the 80"s. Time for an upgrade! The staff was friendly, but didn't appear to enjoy working at the hotel.

We just returned from a 2 night stay at Shore Lodge. We were completely impressed. We were greeted immediately as we pulled up by the valet, where they took our luggage to our room & parked our car (no fee for valet service). At check-in we were offered a glass of wine. My husband and I both thought that was... More

Our family of 6 that included a 2 1/2 grandson had lunch in the Shore Lodge dining room. The setting is very attractive with a view of the lake, although when we were there it was completely frozen. Our lunch entrees were good but not outstanding. The portions were very large. My husband and I split a hamburger which was... More

For those of us that go to McCall hiking and skiing and boating, we remember Shore Lodge as the "old school"" place we stayed where nothing had changed for years! Things HAVE changed over the years, all for the better!!! Stay here if you never leave the lobby and just sit on a leather sofa and Look at the lake... More

We have stayed at Shore Lodge off and on for 40 years. It went through some transitions in the past, but it is now back to the Fabulous Shore Lodge we loved. We stayed just one night, since we were skiing at Brundage, , but what a great way to relax after a hard day of skiing. We were greeted... More
