“Truly a "Blue Diamond"”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We recently moved our boat on Priest Lake to Blue Diamond Marina. We have really enjoyed our experience. Caroline is very friendly. She maintains a top-notch facility. It is a family resort that believes in creating wonderful memories of Priest Lake. The grounds provide lovely perennial beds, hanging baskets and pots of annuals. The showers and restrooms are meticulously cleaned. The new chefs, Melissa and Debbie, create gourmet meals with fabulous appetizers, entrees, homemade bread and excellent desserts for your sweet tooth. The Marina rents a variety of boats that will come in handy. Experiencing Priest Lake from the water is a must! You may want to reserve one of the rooms for a few days to prolong your stay. If you want a great vacation on Priest Lake you can't beat Blue Diamond. A blue diamond is a valuable stone. And the resort is truly the "Blue Diamond" of Idaho!

Cavanaugh's was closed for a wedding rehearsal dinner, so our group drove over to Blue Diamond for a first-time meal. The Italian dishes I had were fantastic, the service excellent, plus our chef, Melissa Lewis, ducked out of her kitchen for a chat about what led her to decide to spend her summer cooking fine cuisine in northern Idaho.

I rented a room for 4 nights at this establishment. The room was a 2 person room. The day I arrived, my daughter and 2 children went with me to check in to the room. The manager came to my room and told me that I was only allowed to have 2 people in my room. I told her that I understood that that I would not have more than 2 people staying overnight in the room. She told me that I could not have more than 2 people enter the room and informed me that my family would have to wait on the deck. She was extremely rude and unrelenting. I told her that I would not be staying there and she told me that I could not get a refund for any of my nights stay. She literally stole $220 in rental fees from me and treated me and my family (especially the children) badly. Do not give this establishment your business. Note, I rented the room for myself as a place to work during the day while on vacation. I had no intention of having additional people staying in the room. I have traveled widely and never run into such a rude and strick environment.

Had an incredible dinner at the restaurant Sunday evening . Met the chef & he recommended
a nice wine to go with our meal. My wife took pictures of our dinners. Great food and very
reasonably priced . They are not open on Monday & Tuesday or we would have eaten every meal
there . It was fantastic .

This is one of the few places you can rent a Kayak at Priest Lake. We've rented here twice and always had great service. The prices are fair and there's nothing quite so lovely as a day on the lake. The restaurant at the Marina is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner after a day on the water. There are many other types of watercraft for rent and the lodging that's available would appeal to many. We are tent campers so kayak rentals and a great meal are all that I can comment on.

We needed to get away and get some rest. Beautiful place to go. We spent two nights there in the twin room, looking out onto the lake. People were AWESOME, very accommodating for handicap access. We even had the restaurant cater our dinner.
We are going back again and highly recommend this place!
