What makes this Cabin unique

We love to walk down to Bear Lake. It's a short 5-10 minute walk. No big roads to cross, just walk across the property and then down 150 south.

                                                          Not great.

                                                          Lexi M.

                                                          We were a little disappointed in the size of the cabin, it seemed a lot bigger in pictures.

                                                          I also had to ask for my refundable deposit back a week after our stay. More of annoyances but we won’t be back.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks for your feedback.

                                                          In response, the size of the cabin is one of the first things in our listing description. I'm sorry you felt it was smaller than you thought it would be.

                                                          The refundable damage deposit is automatically refunded by VRBO 7 days after check out. You requested it sooner than that; I manually initiated the refund as soon as you requested it.

                                                          I feel this two-star review is unwarranted: we have no control over your perceptions, we accommodated your request for an early deposit refund, and we made extra effort to return a pair of sunglasses left behind after your stay.

                                                          Beautiful property, helpful and friendly people, everything needed for a great vacation!

                                                          Perfect property for a family reunion

                                                          Great location

                                                          ValPhx, AZ

                                                          The location is great. We liked being close to town, the marina, the park, etc. The cabin was clean. The finishes are outdated, but it's comfortable and roomy. The family room is a little dark but very large. The outdoor space is great and the kids love the play equipment. Wifi is shared with Papa Bear cabin and it wasn't that great.

                                                          Fun for 3 families

                                                          Ryan W.

                                                          We loved our stay! We had 3 families for our stay and it was comfortable and fit us all. They were great to work with us on what we needed and no one had any complaints. We would definitely stay again.

                                                          We really enjoyed our stay at Mama Bear. Everything worked out great for our New Year's vacation and we would definitely go there again.

                                                          Loved the property! It was close easy to find and had a lovely large yard.

                                                          3-1/2 stars out of five. We loved the hot tub (and thanks for supplying towels), the large gathering room, and we (12 of us) all fit around the dining table! The kitchen was stocked well enough with dishes, pots, pans and cutlery, and we were glad to use the outdoor barbecue. The bathrooms were adequate for our group as well. We also really enjoyed the outdoor chairs to gather and chat on the lawn. And we were glad to have a wagon for the kids!

                                                          The only downside was the bed situation. The house sleeps 16 but most of those are bunks which wasn't helpful to couples which was most of our family. Only two of the four couples were able to sleep together. Also, we found mouse droppings in the master bedroom closet upstairs....

                                                          But overall, we enjoyed the Mama Bear. Thanks!

                                                          (Thank you for a speedy return of our damage deposit as well.)

                                                          Thanks for your feedback. While we have had the floor plans and bed configurations posted from the beginning so there would be no surprises, we recently have had guests complain about the number of bunks. We have added another king bed. Sorry we weren't able to move it in before your stay! :)
