We visited on the way back from Fairbanks on the way to Boise, for another HOG Rally. Our group was down to 5 and we rented the biggest Cabin. It was truly outstanding! The owners made us feel truly welcome. It was a few miles out of town and the private setting was exceptional. We had stayed in a large variety of places in the previous 6 weeks on the road and this was clearly the best. The only thing that would have added to the experience was if the hot tub had been working that evening.

We stopped at Bear Creek Lodge for a night on our road trip through Idaho. We arrived around dark and the owner was very accommodating. We stayed in Cabin 2 with a king bed. The room was clean and updated. They had just upgraded their wifi and we had no problems getting connected. The owner had expressed some concern that the cabin wifi access may not be as good as the other rooms, but I had no issues even when I had to connect to my work network.

The room did not have an air conditioner, but we were able to open the windows and turn on the fan and it was comfortable to sleep at night. All in all it was a great place to stay, wish we could have had another day to stay and rent the atv's and venture out around the property.

We recently stayed at the Bear Creek Lodge with our kids for a family summer vacation. We wanted to find a place where we could have fun together, enjoy recreation, hiking and nature and in a beautiful setting. This lodge was IT! The lobby is nicely decorated and the great room area has seating and amazing views of a meadow, trees and wild flowers. It also has a big deck for sunny, blue sky McCall, ID days. We enjoyed renting the ATVs and going all over on trails. We saw deer, squirrels, chipmunks, a bear and even we think a moose!

Our room was nicely appointed and very clean. We had a suite that had one room with a big bed for us parents and a bathroom. The kids had their own room adjoining with a bunk bed, bathroom and their own tv. We enjoyed having our own deck to hang out outside and just take in the views. The staff was friendly. It was hot but the owners are adding a/c pretty soon as an upgrade. We just opened windows. We weren't in our rooms during the middle of the day anyway but we hope to enjoy that when we come back. We WILL be back!

Oh, we found out there are also separate cabins available on site to rent as well. We might try that next time. And, skiing is just across the street and up the hill at Brundage ski resort so maybe we'll try coming back to McCall in the winter for the festival season. McCall is quaint and has good restaurants, some shopping for tourists, a grocery store, fancy spa (got a massage!) and of course the pristine lake in town.

All in all, a great vacation. It was in big part to staying at this beautiful location. I look forward to seeing more of what these new owners have coming because they have already earned our business as our new summer vacation destination.

Room tip: For families, get the rooms that are family suites with a large bed for parents and adjoining 'room' with a bunkbed and separate bath.

Our pledge is to follow through with plans to upgrade the facilities and grounds as quickly as possible, so our guests can enjoy the natural surroundings with all the comforts and amenities they expect and deserve (and maybe a few unique surprise attractions).
