Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The home on Bear Lake was just as the listing describes. There was plenty of room for relaxation in the home, the kitchen was fully stocked, and (with 7 people) the 2 bathrooms were a plus! The upper deck was the "hang out" when we needed some shade. The beach was wonderful for catching some sun, then dipping in the super clean lake to cool off. My brother and sister-in-law brought their 20ft. boat and it was able to be launched near by, then docked at the houses 40ft. dock. If you have a motor boat you should definitely bring it, if not, their row boats are right on the beach!
All in all, this was a great experience! The home was clean, the owner was very friendly & helpful and I would absolutely recommend this to friends and relatives!

Thanks again to the owner:-)
