The Cove

The McCall outdoors presents endless opportunities for vigorous adventure and sport. It is a constant fascination that lures us daily. Occasionally though we need a respite from the pursuit. An opportunity to reflect on our past excursions and take stock of our efforts. For this we have discovered another form of adventure. One for our spirit as much as our physical-self.  

Meetings & Events

We don’t know about you, but it seems like our best thinking has always been done in tranquil places. A location that inspires and resets your perspective about the issues. Our meeting spaces do just that. With thirteen venues totaling just over 19,000 square feet, we have the perfect space for your meeting or event. Our state-of-the-art technology provides the finishing touches to ensure a world-class event. We’ve been told that our approach is somewhat unconventional, but the results are spectacular.

We’ll take that as a compliment.


We’d like to think that some of the world’s most romantic weddings take place right here. Our combination of rustic elegance and natural beauty provides a backdrop for weddings like no other. No matter the season, weddings are always magical here.
