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.

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!

Papa Bear Lodge: Excellent Lodge for Family Vacations

My family had a great time staying at Papa Bear cabin for a winter get away. As we planned the trip people thought we were crazy to go to Bear Lake in the middle of winter but we loved it. There was plenty to do in the cabin and lots of snow activities nearby. We watched movies, played board and video games, ate great food, went sledding, sat in the hot tub, and held our annual talent show. We loved the theater room, the large kitchen, the gas fireplaces, and nothing was more fun than sitting in the the hot tub in freezing weather looking at the snow covered trees. The large tables were great for board games and crafts. The size and layout of the cabin with large group areas and individual bedrooms allowed us to spend time together but have alone time if needed. This was particularly nice for the nursing mothers but the teenage girls enjoyed their privacy as well.
We also enjoyed activities outside the cabin and everyone we met from the community was great. We had a wonderful time sledding in Logan Canyon. ACE hardware had a large selection of sleds and the visitor's center at the summit of Logan Canyon pointed us to a great sledding hill. We saw lots of people on snow machines, cross country skis, and snow shoes. We would go again and recommend this place to all our friends.
The cabin was very clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We appreciated them having someone meet us there the night we arrived to make sure we knew how to use everything and everything was working. My wife, who has cleaned cabins before and notices every detail, was amazed at how clean the cabin was. There were plenty of towels and extra blankets.

We had a family reunion with our four children, their spouses and 16 grandchildren. There was plenty of room for all of us and we didn't even use all of the rooms. Everything we needed was right there. Loved the fireplaces during these cold snowy winter days. The theatre room was perfect for our talent show and it seemed like somebody was in there all the time watching movies or playing video games. The kitchen was fantastic with room for multiple cooks and kids under foot. Papa Bear is a perfect for our family reunions.

Great Retreat

We had a great time at Papa Bear. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Love the central location and proximity to the lake. It was great to be walking distance to restaurants and gift shopping. Lake side is the only way to go at Bear Lake. This place is great for management retreats like we did but would also be great for medium to large family reunions. I would definitely recommend Papa Bear.
