Good rental in Bear Lake

  • 3 of 5

Lydia's property in Bear Lake is a great location. The access to the property is easy and the inside is nice. There was able bed space for my group of five adults. Two in my group attempted to cook a frozen pizza our first night and had some issues with the timers on the stove and a little independent timer. I woke up in the morning to the timer going off on the stove - the stove has seen better days but it wasn't a huge deal because we didn't really use the kitchen. While the property is across the street from the lake, the water level was so high when we went that there really was no beach area (no one's fault). Even though this property advertises internet - there is NO internet. No router/modem, no signal when looking for one. That was very disappointing but not a huge deal since we were there for less than 48 hours. The rental fit our needs for the most part and was comfortable. With that said, working with Lydia, the owner, was a less than stellar experience. The first time I messaged her before I booked the property was about a certain fee that was appearing in the breakdown, which I never received a response. Then I was the one who had to reach out about check-in instructions three days before check-in - all other vacation rentals I have booked have always emailed me a week in advance (which the message she sent after I booked indicated I would receive instructions a week prior to check-in). The third strike was when my sister-in-law accidentally left her iPad at the house and Lydia first claimed that the housekeeper had found nothing. After some back and forth, it was discovered that the iPad was indeed at the rental house. My SIL asked if it could be shipped to her (we are a 2.5 hour drive one way from Bear Lake) and Lydia said it could not be shipped. My SIL made arrangements to drive and pick it up the next day - when she got to the rental, and met the cleaner, the cleaner told her she could have shipped it to her. And again, I had to inquire about when my damage deposit would be refunded and the next day, it was finally processed. I would have appreciated (and frankly, expected) better service and response time from the owner.

Central location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place for us to meet up with friends for a week. It was centrally located so we could walk into town. The house was in a quiet neighborhood and was spacious for the 7 of us to hang out in. Will definitely hope to stay here again when we come back to Bear Lake.

Location was great, master bed was not!

  • 3 of 5

I really like the location. The kitchen and laundry were great. The house is old and has some wear and tear but not awful. Here's my biggest issues: the beds are awful!! Hard as rocks. The master bed was a simple, old mattress on a hard plank bed frame, no box spring. After the first night I had to sleep on the floor on a mat. The master bed was so uncomfortable! All the other beds were mediocre . I'm one of those people that correlates good sleep to whether or not I'd stay again.

Also, there are just window boxes blowing air no central air. It rained our whole trip and the house was humid and muggy. Overall it wasn't horrible but not amazing.

Yellow/white house

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying in the "yellow/white house". It was easy to find and in a good location to get around. It had exactly what we needed - plenty of beds and room, plus the kitchen worked out great. Thanks so much.
