Listen to one of our many live music performances and cut it up on the dance floor. Or sit by the fire on our peninsula and take in the views of Jefferson and Sawtell peaks, both higher than 10,000 feet above sea level, as the sun sets behind them. Finally, retire to one of our 6 cabins tucked privately away in the pines, or in one of the eight economical hotel rooms next to the main lodge. Our Luxury Cabin can accommodate large groups in a very beautiful and private setting on the lake front.

My family has owned a cabin in Island Park for about 67 years now and of all the years I have been visiting with them, I have never even known about Lakeside until this year. So I took some friends and family and we drove out to have a nice meal one evening and I was absolutley astonished by what we were greeted to. The minute we walked in we were acknowledged by a very young lady who was very sweet and warm to us. She seemed to be the only waitress that night but even as busy as she was she still made sure we were taken care of right away. She brought us menus and asked for our drink orders and in no time we were being served. There had to have been about 5 other tables who had just sat down but this little lady was working hard to make sure everyone of her tables was taken care of. We ordered our food and got it in no wait time at all. The food was very scrumptious, on top of the way it was presented looked amazing and mouth watering. Our waitress checked on us more times than she should have been able to with as busy as she was, and even was able to share some good insight about what places she has loved to visit in Island park and which places she would reccomend for a good walk. She also reccomended the chicken fried steak, and a chicken pasta that was to die for. The manager was also helping her clean off tables and also took time out of his way to stop and check on us, which in most places you don't see at all. All in all this was a breathtaking experience between the waitress, the food, the owner, and the veiw. I would go back over and over just to experience it again. A wonderful place to be and relax.

I have made the trip south to Island Park to visit my sister and her family for over 10 years, but had not gone to the Lakeside very often until this year under new management. From the amazing crab we had on the bar side to a wonderful meal with the kids in the restaurant, I would highly recommend a visit. It may be a little off the beaten path, but it's well worth it! The new owner is doing a great job in coming up with some new features and activities around the hotel as well. It was a great week in IP with many visits to the Lakeside!

My wife and I decided to have our reception at Lakeside Lodge in Island Park, Idaho. We met with Shawn, the owner/manager and Sheri, his wife and decided this was the place we wanted to invite all 100 or so of our friends and family to share the wonderful day with us. We met with Shawn, and believe it or not, he called us and followed up and he even made every effort to email us weekly to keep us notified of costs and events. We rented 3 cabins Friday, the first night and the other 12 cabins Saturday, the second night. Lakeside staff made us feel comfortable and at home. They took care of all 100 of our guests during the Reception Saturday night catering some EXCELLENT food and the costs were better than any other place we checked into. Lakeside even closed down their bar (we never asked for that) so we could enjoy just family and friends. The bartenders were excellent making great drinks and having fun with the crowd. Being able to use the docs and being able to fuel up our jet skis and boats (several) was invaluable. The views of Island Park Reservoir were fabulous, especially during sunset. If you are coming into the area I would highly recommend this place.

This was the third time in 3 weeks that we dined at the restaurant at Lakeside Lodge. Each time it gets better! The manager goes out of his way to ensure the guests are satisfied. This resort is also where the locals go. I've had the daily special two of the times we've been and it has been fantastic. We had a group of at least 10 each time we've been and the service has been great. You can dine inside or sit on the deck and watch an amazing sunset over the water. Full service bar. We will be back!
