As you round "the corner" in McCall you catch a glimpse of two of McCall's most popular attractions.  The majestic Payette Lake and the historic Hotel McCall.  Hotel McCall was built in 1904 and served as a local bed and breakfast. 

"The settlement of McCall was established by Thomas and Louisa McCall circa 1889-91. For a cabin and assumed rights to the 160 acres (0.65 km2) of land, they traded a team of horses with Sam Dever, who held the squatter's rights. Tom, his wife, four sons and a daughter lived in the cabin located on the shore of the lake, near present-day Hotel McCall. He established a school, hotel, saloon, and post office, and named himself postmaster. McCall purchased a sawmill from the Warren Dredging company and later sold it to the Hoff & Brown Lumber Company, which would become a major employer until its closure in 1977." wikipedia 

The early Finnish homesteaders were the first to settle Long Valley in the 1880's, but it wasn't until the 1890's when the raucous, old-western town of McCall was named after Tom McCall, a prominent city leader, who built Hotel McCall around the turn of the century.

In Winter of 1937 Hotel McCall suffered a fire.  It was rebuilt after it burnt to the ground. Over the decades, it has undergone several renovations and additions. In 1995, its current owner, John Carey, purchased the hotel and its surrounding property. Just like the clocks on its walls, the Hotel McCall has been and always will be, the heart of McCall.

According to the McCall Chamber: McCall was named for Tom McCall, a prominent town leader who arrived in 1891 to homestead. Unlike Roseberry, it was a wild and woolly place, notorious for its lakeside whorehouses, dance halls and gambling establishments (including the famous Harrah’s Casinos).

Hotel McCall is the oldest hotel still in the McCall area. For the last 20 years it has been owned by the Carey family who have invested in to not only appreciating our community, but preserving the history.  It is not the wild and woolly place that it once was. It however boasts of delicious food, comfortable beds, and a view of heaven.  It still hosts some of the greatest parties in the northwest.

Chef Gary Kucy, a James Beard Award nominee, creates mouth watering cuisine at the historic hotel.  Gary's culinary training includes a four-year formal apprenticeship at the Five Star, Five Diamond, Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. Gary worked for eight years as a chef with Mark Miller at the Coyote Café in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he assisted in opening restaurants, writing cookbooks and promoting southwestern cuisine worldwide, with cooking stints in Singapore, Mexico, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, New York and Seattle. He subsequently spent two years as chef at the Snake River Grill, an upscale fine dining restaurant in the heart of Jackson, Wyoming. In December 2005, he opened and became Executive Chef of Tamarack Resort's premier restaurant, Morels.
