We took a summer family road trip to Idaho, primarily to go to McCall where my husband was born. I dreaded the trip at first (preferring Hawaii....or...anywhere but Idaho!), but after doing a search and finding Shore Lodge online I thought, "this I can handle!".
When we arrived, I was stunned by the beauty of the place. Our room overlooked the lake and was spacious as well as luxurious. The staff was amazing, and catered to our every need. The resort is fronted by a lake with a sand beach, docks, boats for rent, and a water trampoline. There is also a fire pit where supplies for S'mores are provided nightly and guests gather to sit in white wooden rocking chairs and share conversation. The lounge has breathtaking views of the lake and mountains beyond. There is a family game room with table shuffleboard and other fun activities, and a small movie theater that serves popcorn, soda and other goodies. We were unable to book the movie (it only seats about 25 I think), but the staff delivered all the popcorn and goodies to our room for an "in suite" movie experience! There are bikes (no charge) to check out to ride around the lake. The little town of McCall is adorable as well.
My husband played golf at the Whitetail Golf Club, which he said was one of the best golf courses he has ever played (and he is a PGA golf professional!!). I highly recommend the Shore Lodge!
