November 2020

Just a few short months ago the 2020 Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards recognized Shore Lodge as one of the best resorts in the west. But we’re more than just natural good looks. We’ve got substance, too. Among the plethora of amenities covered by our resort fee are some unique offerings designed to make daily life for both our members and our guests a wonderful experience.


Okay, okay… Payette Lake is not ours. But we do have direct access to it. With 5,300 acres of unspoiled glacial water, this gorgeous lake is a great source of enjoyment (and pride) for all McCall locals. A playground for recreational boaters and those who love water sports throughout the spring and summer months, winter transforms the lake into a sparkling white sea. Try one of our Lake Front Suites to experience what it’s like to wake up with beachfront access.


Need we say s’more? Our nightly poolside fire pit has turned into the stuff of legends. But we can’t take all the credit. It likely has something to do with roasting marshmallows with a view of the lake and the star-studded nighttime skies of McCall. But what we can claim, we do – who else serves complimentary s’mores on a nightly basis?


Giant aquarium meets analog game room. The Tank cozies up to The Cutwater on Payette Lake and provides a casual spot for kids of all ages and their families to play their favorite board games, foosball, or get competitive with our gigantic connect-four. And if that doesn’t interest you, spend some time observing some of the marine life in our iconic 2,000-gallon fish tank!


We could go on (and someday we might) but for now, we’ll leave you with a short but sweet list of our other amenities for your convenience.

  • Shuttle to Brundage Mountain
  • Heated pool
  • Hot tubs
  • Marina
  • Turndown Cookies
  • Whitetail Club Golf Course

We are delighted to appear on their list as one of the world’s best hotels and we hope that one day soon, you’ll find out why we made the cut. Check out Shore Lodge’s Packages and Book your next vacations by clicking below!
