August 2021

If there’s anything that the past year taught us – it’s that quality time with our friends and family is invaluable. With summer coming to a close next month, now is the perfect time to start planning a trip for the fall season.

Two hours north of Boise, Idaho, is the town of McCall, home to Shore Lodge – a quintessential mountain-lake resort. With unrivaled fall-focused amenities, breathtaking scenery, and endless opportunities to explore, you’ll find that Shore Lodge is the perfect enclave for those seeking adventure, rest, and restoration.

If you’re wondering what you can do at Shore Lodge during October and November, we’ve got you covered.

First, you need to ask yourself what type of traveler do you identify with the most?

  • The Adventurer – Ready for thrills and discovery
  • The Wellness Warrior – Dedicated to unwinding and reviving
  • The Night Owl – Charmed by the magic of the night

Now that you’ve picked your match, take a look at how you can make the most out of your fall getaway!

The Adventurer:

For the traveler seeking an adrenaline rush, you’ve reached the right destination. The crisp Autumn air in McCall brings the perfect temperature for an afternoon of mountain biking and exploring the backcountry of Payette National Forest. Here’s a pro tip: pack a camera to capture some of the spectacular sights you’ll encounter of high alpine meadows, crystal blue lakes, and river canyons.

With ATV trails and routes suitable for riders of every skill level – visitors and locals can take in the scenic wilderness and mountain terrain on motorized vehicles. Another way to soak up all of the fall foliage is venturing into the many available hiking trails, such as the Louie Lake Trail. Known for its peaceful scenery, Louie Lake is great for those seeking calm lake views without gaining too much altitude. The complimentary shuttle at Shore Lodge can take you to many of these trailheads, and the Concierge Team can arrange for equipment and supply maps. By the end of the day, you can head over to The Cutwater on Payette Lake to enjoy their expertly crafted meals and drinks.

The Wellness Warrior:

Occasionally, we need a respite from pursuit; after all, that’s why you want to go on a vacation! For this, Shore Lodge has the perfect retreat for guests that crave tranquility and relaxation. With a wide selection of spirited massages, soothing organic facials, and immersive full body wraps and scrubs – you’ll walk out feeling reinvigorated. If that wasn’t enough, the experience doesn’t end there. Guests can dip into one of our two heated saltwater immersion pools, inspired by the local hot springs, or head to our steam room for an extra dose of hydration and splendor.

The Night Owl:

After dark, Shore Lodge is the prime place to disconnect from technology and explore the cosmic shores.

Whether you’re around the fire pit roasting marshmallows from our s’mores bar or taking a nighttime dip in the outdoor heated pool or even sipping a cocktail at The Bar, the resort makes way for stargazing from anywhere you choose to look up. If you plan your visit with a Night Sky chart, you may even spot a few planets, constellations, and sights of the Milky Way Galaxy!
