Get Away with Some Girlfriends 11

Escape with a Mountain Retreat in McCall, Idaho


A girls trip to McCall is the perfect escape from the pressures of day-to-day life in the city. Try it once, and you may end up making this an annual tradition. Everything is within walking distance, from excellent food and unique, small-town specialty shops to the shores of Lake Cascade. The slower pace and village atmosphere of the town puts everyone in a friendly, helpful mood.

If you are up for an adventure, snow sports in the winter and biking and lake sports in the summer will get your blood pumping. To unwind and relax, the spa, hot tubs and walking along the beach will certainly do the trick. This summer, Brundage is hosting a dinner and music series for Friday evening entertainment.  Each evening will follow a theme such as a luau or fiesta.

You really can’t go wrong with a getaway to McCall any time of the year. For more information about this great town and a local events calendar, visit
