Love this home!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this beautiful, relaxing oasis. We had a large family reunion with several adults and a ton of children. This home is so well planned that there are plenty of rooms for privacy when needed as well as great gathering areas for numerous people for group activities or a late night talking session. The home is clean and check-out was a cinch. (No massive cleaning responsibilities at the end of an awesome vacation.) There is a private yard with room for fun and games and maybe a tent or two as well. Parking was perfect with an abundance of safe parking spaces. We didn't have to shuffle cars once!! Close to Garden City but far enough away to have peace and quiet. The kitchen functioned perfectly to feed a crowd too. All in all a great place to stay. We've stayed at other vacation homes near Bear Lake and this one is by far our favorite!! We plan to return often. You'll LOVE it here!!

Wonderful Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were married in Garden City and chose to have both of our families stay at Aspen Lodge for the wedding weekend. The first thing we noticed were that the pictures on the website do not do it justice - it's lovely and spacious yet still cozy! Children AND adults had a great time in the upstairs game room, and in the grassy yard area. Everyone made themselves at home, as there are so many ammenities available (hot tub, coffee maker, and bbq were put to good use!) I recommend this vacation rental for the affordable cost, great location, gorgeous master bedroom/bath, spacious living areas, but most of all because the owners are so wonderful, helpful, and attentive.

Wonderful family reunion at Aspen Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our family (22 people -age 9 months-70) had a wonderful time at Aspen Lodge. Booking and communicating with the owners was very easy...they were great to work with. Everyone was astounded by the FANTASTIC upstairs game/movie room which included 7 queen beds...Fooseball and air hockey were also popular...and the ping pong table got a lot of use(you can buy new balls at the local Ace Hardware)...downstairs were four lovely bedrooms, plenty of space for eating, cooking, gathering and an indoor hot tub! We spent a day with a rented boat/jetskis at the Lake and another at the Minnetonka caves...some of our group went to Bloomington lake...and of course we had raspberry shakes...this was our first time at Bear Lake and everyone would be happy to return to this lovely home. Thanks, Sue and Steve

Happy Camper

  • 5 of 5

We just had the best vacation ever! This beautiful lodge home accommodated out families so well! We had 5 little ones under the age of 5 and what a great home . The kids loved the movie room. The adults loved the indoor hot tube. The air conditioning was crucial to our comfort. The location of the home is perfect for the close availability of the lake and town. You will not be disappointed .

Overall, a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, wonderful furnishings, loved the hot tub and the outside picnic tables. We were so happy to all be together in one place.

Caveats: 2 1/2 bathrooms are not enough for 30 people! We expected the play room upstairs to be separate from the sleeping area - it was tricky with older kids who wanted to play, while younger kids were napping. Oh, and there could be more large pots, bowls, etc., for that many people.

That said, the owners were lovely people, the rates were reasonable for such a wonderful place, and it was a pleasure to be there.

Owner's Response: So happy you and your family had such an enjoyable time, especially since many travelled to Utah from so many states. The Aspen Lodge is fully furnished, including double refrigerators to accommodate large groups. The kitchen is also complete with a large number of cookware pieces including several large pots, sauce and sauté pans, pancake griddles, as well as multiple serving bowls, platters, and baking dishes; plus, dishware and flatware to accommodate over 40 persons. We attempt to foresee what our guests will require while on vacation. Certainly, the indoor spa is a huge hit any time of year. And, the outdoor barbecue and seating offers a great place to gather and mingle. As always, we are working on ways to improve our property to meet the needs of our guests. Check back later this year to see what improvements we’ve made to the Aspen Lodge! Thank you for staying at the Aspen Lodge at Bear Lake! Sue & Steve
