PAPA BEAR, FAMILY REUNION LODGE, SLEEPS 50, WALK TO THE LAKE

Bear Lake Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 15 Bedrooms + Loft, 8.5 Baths, (Sleeps 44-50)

Welcome to the Papa Bear of the Bear Family Haven! The Papa Bear offers a wonderful destination for large family reunions, group getaways, ski and snowmobile groups, or a business retreat.

The Papa Bear has plenty of room for your gathering. With 6500+ square feet, 15 separate bed rooms, and 8 1/2 bath rooms, there is plenty of room for everyone. The Theater room has 100+ inch screen. The loft area has a pool table and a PA system for family meetings.

The kitchen is beautifully done with all stainless steel appliances. There is an over-sized pantry, two refrigerators, two ranges, two double ovens (4 total), and two dishwashers.

There are three full-sized front-loading washers and dryers. Two sets are on the main floor and one set in the loft area.

The Papa Bear is located on Bear Lake Blvd in the heart of Garden City. The property has direct access to the beach via 150 South (this is the Beach Access road that goes directly to the Public Beach).

For smaller groups, see our other listings on VRBO. The Baby Bear Cottage sleeps up to 8. The Mama Bear Cabin is just right for groups up to 15. Or, for really large groups, you can rent all three cabins as they are all adjacent to each other on 1.25 acres of land.

During the non-summer months, we offer the Papa Bear Lodge for smaller groups at a reduced rate. Basically, it’s all of the main floor (7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms), the upstairs loft and gathering area (pool table, foosball table and 1/2 bathroom). In short, it’s the entire lodge except the four upstairs suites.

Michelle and I have been looking to buy or build here for years. Bear Lake is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Salt Lake City. It's just right to get away and still not be too far from home.

Michelle purchased this lodge in 2007

We've been coming to Bear Lake for many years. We usually had to rent 5 or 6 condos in order to fit all of us. We figured that other large families probably had the same experience, so we decided to build a lodge where we could all stay comfortably.

We really enjoy coming to the lodge to relax and enjoy our family. There's lots to do while at the lodge. We all enjoy watching a movie in the theater room. The kids enjoy getting in the hot tub pretty much any time (winter or summer). It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach, so we can walk back and forth between the cabin and the beach whenever we feel like it. There are 2 restaurants next door, and about 10 more restaurants 3 blocks to the north.

Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
The lodge was a dream!! Everyone loved it and wished we all had more time to stay there!! We had 7 families ages 73-6 months. It had lots of room for privacy and yet great gathering spaces! I told my husband that I want one just like it for our retirement home! The playground was fabulous for the kids. Beds were very comfortable & linens were really nice. The kitchen was wonderful! The whole place was very clean and well kept. All the little extras made it that much nicer too, ie pool table, foosball, toddler play upstairs, and theater room was great. The hot tub was a huge hit. The location is nice, walk to town and lake & within short 4-10 min drive to beach. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Michelle was great to work with and made it all come together perfectly! We hope to make it back again for another reunion!

Great for big families!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in the papa bear lodge twice now, it fit our very big family comfortably. Our kids loved having the big play structure, hot tub, and volleyball court on site. Love the great views of the lake, and within a five minute walk to the lake. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone with a big family.

Fantastic Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the Papa Bear Lodge with our family twice and we have loved every minute of the stay. It is centrally located to all kinds of fun activities including four wheeling and boating. The grandkids love the hot tub, swing set and volleyball area. The kitchen is amazing and well stocked! We would encourage any large family group to choose the Papa Bear Lodge!

We were so happy with the accommodations of this spacious, well laid out, well stocked cabin. Close to the lake, lots to do for all ages, which we had, all ages. We had a wonderful time, loved the place and highly recommend for large groups.

Women's Retreat

Women's Retreat
  • 4 of 5
This facility is awesome!! We stayed in the large cabin and two smaller cabins. We used this facility for a women's retreat. We had a total of 68 women. The accommodations were great for our group. The large cabin is in great condition. The two smaller cabins need quite a bit of work. The Bear Trapper Restaurant caterer all our meals and did a fantastic job. The management company is excellent and on top of making your stay comfortable:)

Wonderful family reunion

  • 4 of 5
We had such a good time visiting together at the Papa Bear Cabin. There was plenty of room for everyone, everything was well-stocked and the management was very attentive to our needs. We had a large group (38 people) and we were very comfortable. Thanks for the great stay!
