Shore Lodge

A picture-perfect Idaho getaway
Nestled alongside Payette Lake, Shore Lodge is tucked nearly a mile high in the Northern Rockies, offering elegant meals and accommodations, astounding views and easy access to a plethora of year-round mountain sports. 

It’s the attention to detail that really makes Shore Lodge shine. From the moment you are greeted by a friendly valet, everything is taken care of properly. Whether you want an active day on the water, the slopes, or the trails, or you want to relax at the spa and a sumptuous meal, Shore Lodge makes it happen.

Every detail from lush robes and breakfast served in bed, to warm cookies placed bedside as part of the nightly turndown service, is done right. Shore Lodge offers 77 rooms with garden or lake views; they’re rustic, yet contemporary and spacious — like the lodge itself.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • It is the only hotel on the banks of Payette Lake and includes The Cove spa and three food and drink options overlooking the lake: The Cutwater at Payette Lake (an all-day restaurant known for its patio and breakfasts), The Bar (with elevated bar food) and The Narrows Steakhouse (a fine-dining restaurant).
  • As a year-round mountain and lakeside resort, there’s always something wonderful to do, whether it’s playing on the snow-covered slopes during the winter, splashing along the beach in the summer or just enjoying some romantic time in between.
  • Shore Lodge has a classic mountain look with lots of exposed wooden beams and a moose bust mounted above a stone fireplace in the lobby.
  • A stay at the McCall hotel includes access to all kinds of amenities such as the year-round, outdoor heated pool and hot tub, a 43-seat movie theater and s’mores over the fire pit at the beach every night.
  • The Narrows Steakhouse provides a romantic setting along with a great wine list and an impressive menu featuring Pacific Northwest- and Idaho-grown fare from partners like Snake River Farms.
Things to Know

  • “Ski Town U.S.A.,” as McCall is nicknamed, is home to five different cross-country ski resorts, more than 500 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and alpine skiing at the beloved Brundage Mountain, located a few short miles from the lodge and accessible by complimentary shuttle service.

The Rooms
  • The 77 rooms present either lake views, which provide memorable peeks of the alpine splendors of Payette Lake and the surrounding mountains, or garden views, overlooking the lodge’s impressive grounds. Fireplace suites and a 5,000-square-foot beachfront house are also available.
  • Rustic but filled with modern spoils, the rooms at Shore Lodge are stylish but still offer that classic mountain comfort feel.
