Coeur d’Alene Resort, Idaho

The Coeur d’Alene Resort is a beautiful lakeside resort. I have held four conventions at this resort because the attendees always request to go back. Besides the stunning view, one of its most famous features is the world’s only Floating Green. Take a free water taxi over to the course see what it’s all about.

If you are looking for a lakeside family vacation, there is plenty to do at The Coeur d’Alene Resort. They can arrange everything from hot air balloon rides to parasailing. You can also cruise around the lake, rent boats, and jet skis. They have three pools from which to choose. I took the picture above from the new Infinity Pool at the golf course. While I was there this last time, I biked the Hiawatha Bike Trail. It’s 60 miles from the resort on the Idaho/Montana border but well worth the time if you have it! It is a blast!

The Coeur d’Alene Spa is one of my favorites, and for four years in a row, it has been ranked one of America’s top resort spas, according to Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List. It is beautifully appointed, and the treatments are divine. Treat yourself to a Hot Stone or a Bamboo Fusion Massage. If you are in need of some exfoliation, try the Signature Forest Mineral Scrub or the Ginger & Bamboo Scrub. What’s not to like about a luxurious scrub and rub down?

I have a knack for booking a resort during renovations. The Coeur d’Alene Resort is also going through some upgrades. Some of the rooms are still going through the process. Ask to stay in one of the updated rooms. The 17-story Lake Tower rises above the edge of Lake Coeur d’Alene. The Park Tower features midsize accommodations with varying lake, city and mountain views. The North Wing provides the “cheap seats,” generally overlooking the parking lot. I stay in a Lake Tower Lake View room, overlooking the lake and marina. If you want to cozy up, ask for one with a fireplace. The beds are comfortable, which is always a plus! If you are feeling posh, you can stay in the Jaeger Suite or the Hagadone Suite. The Hagadone is better for entertaining, and the view is spectacular. It also has a jacuzzi on the balcony and a separate glass bottom swimming pool.

If you are thinking about a wedding or meeting, The Coeur d’Alene Resort offers over 32,000 square feet of event space in 25 meeting rooms.

The Coeur d’Alene Resort also offers 11 locations to fill your belly, two of which make Lea’s List of Deliciousness (see my “Reviewing of Coeur d’Alene Restaurants” on Finediningondiscourse.com.) Dockside has a Sunday brunch that will put most to shame.

If you are anywhere near North Idaho and are planning a family vacation, consider The Couer d’Alene Resort. I have always found the staff to be super friendly. There are a ton of things to do in the area (kid-friendly or not), and the view is breathtaking.
