Shore Lodge to close for construction; new dining options coming

McCall’s Shore Lodge will fully shut down operations for a week, starting November 13th.

Crews will swoop in after breakfast that day and knock out a number of projects – including “renovation of our two new restaurants,” as well as updating detailed woodwork throughout the nearly 70-year old lodge on Payette Lake.

“We are excited for this project, as it will give a fresh new look to our common spaces,” Lodge officials said in an email blast about the project.

Shore Lodge will open back up on Saturday November 18th at 7am.

Two other dining options at Shore are also being updated.

After launching the new Cutwater restaurant this summer, the resort will also reconfigure its Narrows Bar and Narrows restaurant offerings. 

The restaurant will move into the former bar space, and the bar will slide into the old restaurant space.  When it reopens in January, 2018 – the restaurant will be renamed Narrows Steakhouse. “A definitive Idaho steakhouse where the singular focus is to distinctively serve the finest food and drinks in one the most stunning dining environments anywhere,” in Shore Lodge blog speak.
