Outstanding home in the mountains! Perfectly set location wise and the home is just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at HCL. Our two families and the children really had a great time. We hiked, built fires, went out on the water, watched a movie in both the theatre room of the home and the clubhouse, we cooked and really enjoyed the three days we stayed. Highly recommended!! Definitely will rent again. Thank you for making such a perfect home that's beyond equipped!

The property and surrounding areas were beautiful.

This cabin is absolutely beautiful with everything you will ever need for a mountain getaway. Bear Lake Reserve is a beautiful community with endless areas to explore. I stayed in this cabin with my wife and 4 children. The cabin is set up perfectly and the owner is extremely helpful and accommodating.

Great Mountain Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great--excellently decorated and furnished. I can definitely see this property as a great location for wedding parties with upstairs and downstairs balconies, bar, media room, etc. We enjoyed playing foosball and just sitting out on the balcony at night by the fireplace and enjoying the peace and quiet then coming in and enjoying a nice steam shower. There's a massive VHS/DVD collection all over the house for your watching. I would not hesitate to stay at this property again.

FABULOUS CABIN! I WOULD LOVE TO RETURN TO THIS WONDERFUL PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful cabin during the weekend of our daughter's wedding at Castle Ladyhawke. Upon our arrival we were pleasantly surprised at the picturesque setting and the amenities included in this beautiful cabin. The visit from the official greeter was very informative and helpful in getting us acquainted with the cabin and the surrounding area. We loved the decor, the layout and the proximity to the entrance of Bear Lake Reserve as it allowed us to have quicker access to Castle Ladyhawke. Our only regret with our stay was that we were so busy with wedding festivities during the weekend that we did not have a chance to just relax and sit on the deck with a roaring fire or enjoy all the amenities that the cabin and Bear Lake have to offer! We certainly plan to return in the future!
