At Shore Lodge, we know how much it means for our guests to celebrate life’s special occasions with those they love. To help mark these moments, you need a place that delivers on ambiance, scenery, fine dining, and award-winning amenities that can elevate your experience from great to remarkable.

At Shore Lodge, we know how to make that happen.

With this in mind, we curated unique itineraries to inspire your next celebratory getaway!


Celebrate Anniversary at Shore Lodge

We value celebrating couplehood! Whether it’s your 1st wedding anniversary or 50th, this day belongs to you and your sweetie. Our mountain-lake surroundings naturally allow you to step away from it all and let you frolic down memory lane and focus on enjoying each other. Reminisce about your wedding day or the riches of your life well-lived together. For our couples looking to get away for a magical escape, here’s a checklist for your ideal retreat:

Day 1:

  • Check-in to a Lake View Suite. Be sure to step onto your patio to take in the breathtaking views and fresh air.
  • Jump-start the relaxation – slip on your bathing suit and bathrobe (in-room), and head over to the outdoor hot tub, complete with panoramic views of Payette Lake.
  • Post soak, get dressed and head to The Bar for pre-dinner cocktails.
  • Make reservations to dine at The Narrows Steakhouse that evening for a decadent meal with impeccable service.

Day 2:

  • Start the morning with breakfast in bed and order from our room service menu. After, visit The Cove for a side-by-side couple’s massage. Any massage services on the menu can be done in our adjoining treatment room. Just let us know when booking your reservation, and we’ll make the arrangements. Be sure to bring your swimsuit to soak in the indoor and outdoor immersion pools after your service.


Looking to book a Babymoon? Consider the Anniversary Itinerary with this twist:

  • Swap the Hot Tub with a swim in the heated outdoor pool
  • Swap cocktails with mocktails at The Bar.
  • Request a Pre-natal massage; yes, we can do this in adjoining rooms!
  • Swap the soak in the immersion pools for a facial after the massage.


Celebrate Graduations at Shore Lodge

Reward those sleepless nights studying and writing papers by relaxing lakeside at Shore Lodge. Earning your diploma is no easy feat, and you deserve to get away from the laptop and sync up with nature. In McCall, we celebrate graduations a little differently, and you can too:

Day 1:

  • Post-check-in, head over to The Coffee Shop and recharge with freshly brewed coffee and delicious pastries. Then, take a bike or the complimentary shuttle to town for a stroll around McCall and pop into the many artisan gift shops. While in town, it’s common for locals and visitors to come across the town’s distinctive wildlife such as deer, moose, or one of McCall’s 400 species of birds.
  • Back at the hotel, stop at the front desk and pick an occasion-worthy movie (top picks; Ferris Bueller’s Day off, Legally Blonde, Breakfast Club) for your private screening at The Theater. * Head back to your room and order room service, but skip the dessert, and leave room for popcorn.

*The Theater is an amenity for Shore Lodge guests, and movies are shown by request on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Day 2:

  • Slowly ease into the day by catching up on some well-deserved Zzzz’s, and then get ready for a brunch at The Cutwater on Payette Lake with friends and family. On the menu, you’ll find signature breakfast dishes that can accommodate all sorts of taste palettes, including Avocado Toast, Brioche French Toast, Steak & Eggs, or a classic Eggs Benedict.

To continue the celebration, head on over to The Tank, the analog game room, where you’ll find classic board games, a foosball table, a giant connect-four, and more.


Celebrate Birthdays at Shore Lodge

You’ve completed another lap around the sun, and we want to be a part of your birthday celebration! Whether your special day is in July or in December, McCall can offer a thrilling visit that will quickly have you extending your stay for just ‘one more day!’ Here’s a preview of what you can expect for a one-of-a-kind birthday retreat:

Day 1:

  • After you drop off your bags at your room, sit lakeside and toast your arrival at The Bar. Our Cheese & Charcuterie platter is a guest-favorite that combines sweet and savory meanwhile, you sip on your choice of reds or whites.
  • Change into your shiny shoes and then head over to The Narrows Steakhouse for an evening that will not only wow your taste buds but also offer award-winning service. Our team will make it a point to roll out the red carpet for you.

Day 2:

Spend your birthday out in nature with an adventure of your choosing and make Shore Lodge your basecamp. Available by season, guests can Paddle Board or Kayak on Payette Lake, hike or snowshoe through Payette National Forest, or spend the day lounging at our private beach.
