At Shore Lodge, we understand the importance of a much-needed break. Especially during a business meeting. That’s why when you host one of your meetings or corporate events here, at Idaho’s Best Hotel with Meeting and Event Spaces*, your down time is covered. When planning your next event, you can choose from our selection of signature activities to add an unforgettable break to your meeting agenda that is sure to inspire a sense of teamwork, wellness and fun!

SPIRITED BREAKS: Toast to the success ahead, and those under your belt with a beer pairing event featuring cold local brews paired with delicious appetizers, or opt for a spirit sampling. You and your team can watch the sun set on the dock while our expert mixologist walks you through the intricacies of whiskies/bourbons/ryes. Or, join us as an expert from a local distillery guides you through the distilling process and the complex flavors of an array of vodkas made from Idaho’s famous potatoes, paired with the finest caviar and smoked salmon.

GAME NIGHT: Put your team to the test with a bit of friendly competition. Outfitted with cutting edge technology, the Shore Lodge Theater is the perfect place for Game Night. Whether Pub Trivia or an Air Guitar competition, you choose the games. This fun add-on will provide you and your group with prime theater seating, beverages of your liking, and a choice of four bar snacks.

SPA WELLNESS BREAK: Dive into indulgent and regenerative self-care at The Cove. We take pride in cultivating a healthy balance of work and life. So allow us to guide you through our Spa Wellness Break and learn the importance of wellness and healthy habits after a 10-minute restorative meditation guided by one of our relaxation experts. We guarantee that you and your team will leave feeling serene and ready for business.

SUNRISE YOGA OR PRE-MEETING YOGA: It may seem like a stretch, but while focusing on business is what you’re here to do, we can’t let you neglect your mind, body and soul. Take in the mountain-lake views while you relax and focus on the simpler things in life. Whether you’re out on the dock on one of our warmer days, or in the lower pavilion on cooler days, our pre-meeting yoga class will make your team stretch into a calmer state-of-mind.

LUNCH BREAK: Sure, this sounds like an obvious choice, but at Shore Lodge, it’s anything but common. Here, we’ll set up an exclusive picnic for you and your team on the shores of Payette Lake for a breezy beachside refresher or a charming mountain setup for an invigorating affair. Your team will arrive to blankets and baskets stocked with traditional picnic fare like crispy fried chicken or a refined charcuterie style spread. After your meal, join in on some friendly competition with giant Jenga, cornhole and various other outdoor games to keep your group entertained. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, head to an excursion and take your team fly fishing in the wilds of Idaho. We will equip you with everything an expert fly fisher would need for a day out by the water and a delicious grab & go lunch in a Shore Lodge dry bag that you get to keep.

You work hard. So why not play hard too? At Shore Lodge, you’ll find all the luxuries and amenities you’ll need to make your next corporate event your best one yet. For more information, or to get started in planning your next event, call 208.630.0231 or, visit us at
