The somewhat remote and rugged region of Central Idaho offers a variety of hotel options — everything from luxurious accommodations to glamping (luxury camping) is available. When considering the best places to stay in the region, Shore Lodge in McCall is tough to top for its great balance of rustic yet refined style; its easy access to great skiing, hiking and Payette Lake; and for its spa, The Cove, and fine-dining restaurant, The Narrows.
If you can’t get one of the 77 rooms or 68 suites at Shore Lodge, there are a few other options. The old-school feel of Sun Valley Lodge has appealed to visitors for more than 75 years. The cozy Knob Hill Inn in Ketchum is a popular European-inspired boutique hotel, and the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch in the Sawtooth Valley outside of Stanley is known for its amazing views and for marrying historic charm with modern comfort.
