Best Weekend Getaway


Coeur d'Alene Resort

What makes the Coeur d'Alene Resort a hands-down winner in the "Best Weekend Getaway" category? Whether you're in the "I-can't-get-enough-of-this-person" throes of rose-tinted, early romance or in need of something strong enough to ward off a bad case of the seven-year itch, the Coeur d'Alene has everything you need. The panoramic views of Lake Coeur d'Alene and the surrounding mountains are enough to get anyone's motor running, but add to that the Coeur d'Alene's luxurious rooms, many with fireplaces, balconies, sunken living areas and CD players and — whoa, mama! When you're finally ready to come out of your room, you can take a romantic stroll on the boardwalk, spend some time in the spa or enjoy fine dining at Beverly's. If you're especially inspired, the Coeur d'Alene even has a lakeside wedding chapel at Beauty Bay. Best of all, the Coeur d'Alene Resort is close enough that you won't have to spend most of your weekend in the car.
