Stayed here a few years ago and really enjoyed the property and location; now with remodeled cabins, the place is even better. Gary, Mary and Justin are fantastic owners and go all out to take care of their guests. The remodeled cabins are really nice - cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans, air conditioning (which we didn't need, even though it was hot). Went kayaking on the lake; they have paddle boards for another adventure. We really enjoyed being here.

Plus, it is really close to Silverwood for those that want to spend a couple of days there.

Room Tip: All cabins are great.

We keep our boat there year-round. Marina services are great - there is always a waiting list for long-term slips. You can get a slip for your boat when staying in one of the cabins for minimal charge. They have a launch/loading dock, mechanic services, fishing supplies. It's a fabulous fishing destination.

We have stayed in and have had guests stay in upper and lower cabins, and they have everything you need. Quaint, basic - if you're looking for 5-star lodging, this is not it. But it suits the environment and is charming.

The people there are the best, very warm, friendly and service-oriented. The little marina store carries most of the basic necessities and wants - including beer and wine.

The Hudson Bay Resort is located in Bayview, Idaho on Lake Pend Orielle. We stayed in Cabin 3 (but have stayed in several others over the years). Cabin 3 is up above on a ledge overlooking the lake. There is also four cabins on the water. Cabins come in in a variety of sizes in terms of # of bedrooms. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. The cabins were orginally built in the 50's and have recently been updated. If you want a location that is a good peaceful and relaxful this is a great place that is close to areas to investigate (if you have a car). Bay view is located between Coeur d'lene and Sandpoint. Spokane, Wa is about 1 hour away. Farragut State Park is close (within walking distance if you like to walk/hike). If you are looking for child activities Silverwood is within 15 miles. There is not a resturant on location however each cabin has a kitchen with supplies for cooking. If you need something in particular ask if it is in the cabin and bring with you if you need it. Threre is a BBQ with each cabin. The Marina has a small store and there is a Mercentile in the town of Bayvies that has a bigger selection. Grocery stores are available on the hiway to Coeur d'Alene If need upper end accomadations and action this is not the best fit for you. If you like relaxed slow paced surroundings and vintage character you will love this place and the people you meet.

Room Tip: Some cabins overlook lake/marina. Four more @ waterlevel (then one closest to the lake is right in...

Was here for a 3 night family trip in cabin 6. Staff was fantastic, friendly & helpful. Cabin was clean and spacious, fit our family perfectly. Kitchen bigger than expected stocked with what you need and full size fridge which worked fine but leaked a bunch of water. Only complaint is the bed in first room had broken box spring which made for uncomfortable sleep. Beautiful view and very peaceful. I recommend this resort over the one down the road, it's run like a professional business unlike the other and definitely will return next summer.

MacDonald Hudson Bay resort is a nice little spot on a beautiful lake in Bayview Idaho. Some cabins are on the water but most are up on a bluff above the marina. The cabins are small and totally retro. I thought they were adorable and were perfect for our little family. Ours had 1 bedroom and 2 additional futons in the living room space. A full kitchen with dishes made it easy to come home after spending the day at the amusement park and make dinner. It was safe and clean and quiet and had wifi, basic cable and parking.

The family that runs this resort is super friendly and helpful as well.

Located 12 miles from Silverwood it is really close and it is easy to get to the park.

Almost wish we had an extra day to explore the park (which you can walk to from the resort)

Room Tip: Pick the cabin layout that suits your families sleeping needs
