On a typical day across the grounds of Terrace Lakes Resort, guests are often hiking, mountain biking, four-wheeling through the pine-lined trails of Boise National Forest, relaxing in a geothermal hot-water pool, or watching the sun descend behind the mountains with a refreshing drink in their hands. Guests staying overnight in the resort’s cabins enjoy unrivaled access to the Idaho backcountry and enjoy nature however they see fit, from whitewater rafting to fishing to challenging a squirrel to a tennis match. In addition, Terrace Lakes Resort blankets the alpine setting with a 5,928-yard golf course that challenges golfers of all stripes. The par 72 layout eases players into the round with a relatively open, slightly longer front nine characterized by dramatically sloped greens. The second act's winding circuit of narrow, tree-lined fairways requires golfers to exercise more precise play than having to retrieve their ball from the Operation patient. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 5,928 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 69.2 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 128 from the farthest tees * Three tee options * Scorecard
With its sun-dappled outdoor patio, laid-back vibe, and cozy interior permeated with the sounds of live music, The Blue Moose Cafe has established itself as a local favorite for informal eats throughout the year. On the converted bungalow?s porch, umbrellas and ceiling fans create a comfortable ambiance that caused one Boise Weekly food critic to proclaim the eatery ?hard to beat? when it comes to "casual summertime dining." Inside, hardwood floors and quirky artwork line the space, where cushioned stools dress ranks in front of a wood-and-granite wine bar.
No matter where you choose to sit, however, the savory selections from the kitchen staff?s eclectic repertoire are the stars of the show. On top of daily specials, which can include everything from green-chili chicken enchiladas to salmon pinwheels with garlic mashed potatoes, the cooks maintain an established menu of lunch classics. They toss crisp salads with ingredients such as fresh bay shrimp and housemade peanut sauce and prepare 19 gourmet sandwiches, including clubs, melts, and grinders. On Friday nights, live bands entertain crowds with original songs and SAT prep questions set to a melody.
