Finding Fall in North Idaho
Autumn in Coeur d'Alene is truly transcending. The flavors at the restaurants change, bourbon goes neat, fireplaces roar, leaves fall, and outdoor adventures get even more colorful. There’s no wrong way to experience Coeur d'Alene but there are a few spots worth putting on your fall bucket list. From shopping to hiking to dining, we’ve planned a one-day itinerary that lets you experience it all.
Enjoy your morning coffee or tea from Lobby Cafe on the private balcony of your Guestroom for sunrise over Lake Coeur d'Alene.
Walk down to Dockside for an adventure-filling breakfast by the water. In the mood for savory? Order Idaho Ruby Red Trout and Eggs or try the Huckleberry Pancakes for something deliciously decadent.
Take off on Tubbs Hill for an easy trail hike that delivers spectacular views. Or try Mineral Ridge for a nearby but strenuous climb to one of the best views around.
Pick up a few post-hike provisions at Tito's Italian Grill or Taphouse Unchained to discover modern Mediterranean delights from steamed mussels and artisan pizzas to ice-cold beer and house-made burgers.
No trip is complete without a little souvenir. Visit the Resort Plaza Shops for local shopping, tasting rooms, candy shops, restaurants, and more.
Head down to the Independence Point boardwalk to take off a worthwhile trip of sightseeing on Lake Coeur d'Alene. Learn about the nationally acclaimed lake, watch for wildlife, view secluded lake homes along the shore, and cruise alongside the world’s only Floating Green.
Sit atop the Resort rooftop lounge, The Terrace, for stunning vistas, insta-worthy photo opts, and pre-dinner cocktails.
Close the day on the 7th floor as you savor 5-star dining at Beverly's. May we suggest the Hot Rock Filet Mignon or Bone-In Bison Ribeye. After all, you've earned it.
Following a full day of North Idaho adventure, we highly recommend restoring at The Coeur d'Alene Resort Spa for a transcending massage or facial coupled with a session in the infrared sauna. We look forward to welcoming you to the Resort soon for autumn days and colorful lakeside memories.
