A winter retreat at the right destination is an experience your family won’t soon forget. Nestled in the mountain lake town of McCall, Idaho, Shore Lodge offers the perfect getaway for families of all sizes. From parents seeking to unwind to kids searching for fun and adventure to grandparents looking to go at their own pace, we have the ideal itinerary to ensure everyone enjoys their next family vacation at Shore Lodge.

The Cove at Shore Lodge

For the Parents – A Spa Day at The Cove

Parents, we know how important it is for you to decompress during your family vacation. The resort has many ways to unwind, but our favorite place, sans the under-18 crowd, is The Cove, an authentic McCall spa. Open seven days a week, guests can choose from various spirited massages, nourishing facials, and soothing body treatments. What really sets our spa apart is the two heated salt-water immersion pools forged from 68,000 pounds of local boulders. Enjoy a relaxing soak before or after your treatment in either our indoor or outdoor pool, or both.

And for those seeking a more romantic setting, The Cove offers couples massages, allowing you to enjoy a massage with your partner in their adjacent treatment room.

Shore Lodge's Heated Pool

For the Kids – Adventures at The Tank and Beyond

Kids of all ages can indulge in endless entertainment at Shore Lodge, starting with our analog room, The Tank. With a 2,000-gallon fish tank filled with tropical marine life, The Tank features classic board games, a foosball table, giant connect-four, and more – making it the perfect haven for our younger guests to hang out.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Make a splash in our large outdoor heated pool, open year-round, to engage in a friendly game of Marco Polo or an underwater tea party. There’s no lifeguard on duty, so make sure you have a grown-up with you when you’re ready to take that dip!

The Bar at Shore Lodge

For the Grandparents – Scenic Views and Causal Bites at The Bar

With its warm setting and inviting ambiance, grandparents can find a comfortable place to sit at The Bar and take in the picturesque views of Payette Lake and the Salmon River Mountains. The menu includes seasonal cocktails and casual delights like our Spinach & Artichoke Dip or Bar Burger and offers a daily Happy Hour from 3-6pm. And if the weather permits, take the action outside and sit by our outdoor fire pit while sipping on a Hot Toddy.

For the Entire Family – Quality Time

As the day winds down, the whole family can regroup for some quality time, starting at The Cutwater on Payette for dinner featuring unrivaled fare. With delectable menu items authentic to Pacific Northwest cuisine, everyone’s taste-buds will be satisfied. But make sure to leave room for some dessert!

After dinner, put on your coats and head outdoors for complimentary s’mores by the fire pit. Toast marshmallows to golden perfection and sink your teeth into a chocolatey treat that will delight the young and young at heart.

Once the sun has set, continue the family fun indoors with a private screening of a blockbuster hit in our state-of-the-art private theater. Complete with fresh popcorn from our concession stand; this cinematic experience is the perfect way to end the day with your loved ones.
