“Very Disappointed!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

I am very sorry to be writing this review. We have had so many wonderful lunches and dinners at the Shore Lodge but I must advise staying away from the Sunday brunch. Order from the menu instead! The brunch is scrambled eggs, cold potatoes, a Mexican dish of some kind and bacon or sausage. And, of course, OATMEAL!! The fresh fruit was good and had a nice presentation. The service is always good and the setting beautiful. We will certainly go back but not for the brunch!

I stayed at this hotel attending a convention. The only problem is that I was in meetings all day and did not have time to enjoy the beauty of the hotel and its location. My room was on the first floor, opening right out onto the lake. The room was spacious and comfortable with good amenities. The setting is gorgeous, right on the lake. I loved the free s'mores by the fire pit each night! Nice touch. Staff was friendly and helpful. I did not have an opportunity to try the restaurants, as meals were served as part of the convention. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is in an excellent location. The rooms were fabulous, very clean and beautiful. The outdoor pool was heated to a comfortable temperature and the hot tub was nice, too! One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at.

Room was comfortable and large, lake view was amazing! Food was good, spendy but good. Amenities were plentiful and fun.

Room Tip: Definatey opt for the lake view!

Just returned from three nights at the shore lodge. I've been a fan but I really love the details that they have incorporated in the past couple years. Such a magically place with the natural beauty of the payette lake and surrounding trees. Notice more landscaping around the beach side. Loved it. S'mores in the evening for the kids complimentary. Loved out boat tour with Scott. Nice guy and was great with our children. Food was wonderful. Can't wait to return in a few months.

Room Tip: Ask for first level lake view close to the pool

My comments are coming from a perspective of a couples visit and NOT from the "extended family" type of destination visit perspective. While this hotel has many amenities that would appeal to families and such. It made for a perfect retreat for my wife and I. We timed it right as it was prior to the summer rush when more children would have been present, so it was still peaceful. The room are immaculate and well appointed with 2 separate rooms, one for the bed area and a 2nd for more like a living room. The restaurant is very classy and perfect for an intimate dining experience as we had. Same with the bar as well. We came in mid may prior to the Memorial Day rush that would likely involve a more packed and noisy environment. As such we enjoyed a good peaceful time. We walked around the premises with the lake and enjoyed a movie and popcorn in their private theater. The help there were highly professional and answered our questions regarding the hotel. All in all a great stay and one we hope to have again. The view alone is worth it on the lake side of the hotel. Highly recommended.
