Founded in 1976 by Duane B. Hagadone in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, the Hagadone Corporation is a privately held company with operations that include hospitality, golf, restaurants, real estate, media and publishing, advertising, photography, marine and aviation.

The company’s flagship headquarters are housed in an iconic structure at the edge of Lake Coeur d’Alene. The nearby Coeur d’Alene Resort, an 18-story, 338-room hotel which opened in 1986, is the company’s signature property, set off by the brilliant red geraniums, crisp green lawns and deep lake-blue hues that define the brand.
The company has a real estate division which includes a number of excellent commercial, retail and residential properties. There is also an aviation division based at the Coeur d’Alene Airport.


The Hagadone Corporation was founded on the ethics of hard work, attention to detail and a relentless drive for excellence in all things. That vision helped transform Coeur d’Alene from a mining and timber town into one of the West’s most desirable destinations. The Coeur d’Alene Resort alone has served more than 5 million visitors and 22 million meals since it opened in 1986. It’s estimated that those visitors have spent close to $2 billion in Coeur d’Alene.


Conde Nast Traveler named The Coeur d’Alene Resort the best resort in the U.S. and the world’s best travel product, and MSNBC named The Spa Coeur d’Alene “the world’s most romantic spa.” Good Morning America named The Coeur d’Alene Resort the nation’s finest holiday destination, while Golf Digest calls The Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course “America’s most beautiful golf course.”


But the company refuses to rest on its accomplishments, as evidenced by the latest multi-million dollar projects which built the Hagadone Event Center, wedding garden and infinity pool and completely renovated The Coeur d’Alene Resort and the corporate headquarters.


Today, the Hagadone Corporation, its management group and thousands of team members are proud to carry that vision of excellence into the future.
