About the property

Garden City, Utah

**Parties of 8 or less will only have access to the Lakeside Cabin, while groups over 8 guests will have access to both cabins for a higher rate**

Welcome to Bear Lake Bungalows, a rustic shorefront property offering 2 deluxe cottages connected by a breezeway in Garden City, Utah, near the mouth of Logan Canyon. Just a short drive away from the city of Logan and many other major points of interest in the Rocky Mountain region, this property is an ideal setting for multi-family reunions and families traveling with children. The property has plenty of open grass area for fun outdoor activities, as well as direct access to the beach/lake shore!


The deluxe master cabin on the property faces the picturesque shoreline of beautiful Bear Lake and offers breathtaking views through its many picture windows from dawn until dusk. Twin French doors open to a spacious redwood deck, where you and your companions can enjoy meals, relax on the patio furniture, or catch some rays while the kids play. This cabin can sleep up to 8 guests comfortably - You’ll get a good night’s sleep in the charming master bedroom with queen-sized bed and closet, along with private sink and toilet. The kids will enjoy staying in the second guest bedroom, which features double lodgepole bunk beds with full-sized mattresses. The living room offers a cozy full-sized futon, and a separate bathroom features a sink, shower, and toilet. You’ll have multiple options in this cabin of places to enjoy your meals, including the main dining area with seating for 6, the bar with seating for 3, and the lovely outdoor patio that features a nice picnic table, which can seat 4-6 more. The main dining area is also a wonderful place to sit and play cards or other games, while the living area features a TV with DVD combo for your entertainment and cozy futons for lounging. While this cabin has a fireplace, it is currently out of order and unfortunately cannot be used. This front cabin is available for rent by itself for smaller groups of 8 people or less.


You’ll find that the second, back cabin is a little more rustic, offering fairly close quarters for those who don’t plan on spending much time indoors. Separated from the front cabin by a breezeway, this cabin enjoys cooler temperatures in the summer and features a cozy wood-burning fireplace for more warmth in the evenings. A portable gas heater is also available on-site, as temperatures can rise and fall easily at this elevation! This cabin has 1 private bedroom featuring a full-sized bed and dresser, located adjacent to a shared bathroom with shower, sink, and toilet. A spacious upstairs loft provides sleeping quarters for as many as 6 more guests, furnished with 3 full-sized beds and partitions for privacy. There’s also a comfortable full-sized futon in the living room, which can serve as sleeping arrangements for extra guests or as a nice spot for falling asleep in front of the TV with DVD player. Overall, this cabin can accommodate 8-10 guests. Before a memorable day of lake adventures, whip up a tasty breakfast in the rear cabin’s adorable kitchenette, equipped with a small refrigerator, range, and oven. The kitchen also doubles as a dining area and breakfast nook, which can seat 5 or 6 guests at a time. A large window overlooks the garden area with trees and flowers in full bloom, so you can admire your beautiful natural surroundings as you dine. This cabin is available in combination with the front cabin for larger groups over 8 guests for a higher rate.


Each cottage comes complete with comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms, living, dining, and kitchen areas. Both are fully furnished and feature TVs with DVD players and all the basic kitchen appliances required to prepare delicious home-cooked meals, such as a refrigerator, range, oven, and microwave. The front cabin also has a CD stereo system, so you can listen to your favorite tunes during your downtime. Parking is available in the rear for as many as 5 vehicles. While there are no laundry facilities on site, the KOA campground across the street offers coin-operated laundry machines for your convenience. Additionally, the KOA campground operates a small market with groceries and other miscellaneous items, as well as a gas station and car wash.


Bear Lake is a land of plenty, and you’ll quickly discover there is always something to do nearby. Many people come for the exceptional boating, sailing, waterskiing, and fishing, while others come for golfing, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. More leisurely pursuits include walking, sunbathing, bird watching, and reading. Depending on the time of year you plan to visit, there may be local festivals or fairs, such as the world-famous Bear Lake Raspberry Days, or the Bear Lake Mountain Man Rendezvous at Rendezvous Beach. Great local places to grab a bite to eat include Merlin’s, which is known for their amazing big hamburgers, or La Beau’s for their famous raspberry shakes! The Bear Lake Pizza Co. is just down the road and offers brave diners a chance to devour their 28-inch “Bear Lake Monster.” Cafe Sabor is the property owner’s favorite place to take family and friends out for great Mexican food and pasta dishes. Be sure to try the Motor Lounge for a tasty breakfast!

Great rustic cabin, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Nice rustic cabins you can tell have been enjoyed for many years. Beautiful views! There is no real "beach", however there is a rocky path (be careful!) that takes you down to the water, if you can stand to fight off the swarms of clingy, biting marsh flies. The location is right across the street from the only grocery store/market in town, which was nice. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to rent this place again!!

Great weekend - Rustic but charming

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for something down off the mountain close to the action, and we were really pleased with these cabins. They are right across from the market and about a mile away from the marina (and restaraunts in the opposite direction). They were definitely older and more rustic family cabins, but we thought it was charming. The space is close quarters, but we didn't spend much time inside anyway. Kids spent almost their entire time outside while adults played cards inside and watched a movies at night. Kids loved the log bunk bed and futon. We loved the outdoor fire pit on the beach. Lots of space for frisbee and games on the lawn. Everything was clean and tidy when we arrived and the owners were gracious about extending our check out. The only drawback was lack of access to the water, but that is to be expected when water levels are so low. It was obvious the water was at the property line in previous years. We rented jetskis down the road a bit and spent part of the day playing in the lake at the beach near the rental company. We would definitely book here again and bring friends. There is a back cabin that sleeps 6-8 more.

Dirty, Unappealing, Mistake

  • 1 of 5

We had such high hopes for this property - being on the shore, so close to town was a highlight we were very excited about. Unfortunately, the outdoor space is about the only thing we ended up being happy about. The outdoor firepit was a lot of fun, as was paddle boarding, badminton, and the hammocks. That's about where it ends. The interior of the cabin looks like it has not been updated since 1970, which in itself wouldn't be bad, if it hadn't looked like it had been that long since it was cleaned. The flooring was awful - I wouldn't walk barefoot in there. The table has a glass overlay on it, and there was so much food and dirt underneath it, we couldn't eat at the table... we had to eat outside. The bathrooms are tiny, and the shower curtain is moldy and disgusting. The heat register in the bathroom had so much dirt and dead bugs in them, it caused your gag reflex to engage. There is no dishwasher - no problem there, until you have to wash the dishes before you use them due to the dried on food from the previous renters. The refrigerator froze all our food, even after we turned up the settings on it. And that red you see along the roofline of the photos - make no mistake, it's red coke bottle glass, which in the mornings turns everything inside red, so you cannot tell if you're mixing lemonade or if you mistakenly got red kool-aid instead. At least the linens were clean, although the sheets did not fit on the queen size bed, so we constantly had to pull them up. This is the first and last time we stay at this property.

Definately an adventure!

  • 3 of 5

We absolutely loved the deck and the view of the lake. The mornings and evenings were spectacular! The beach is not useable, we went elsewhere to play in the lake. The inside is very rustic and quaint. It was not great for 8 adults as the beds are only full sized and the bathrooms are small and have no outlets. Getting ready was a mess. The place seemed clean, but not well maintained. There is no room to hang out inside, but fortunately we were not inside much. The weekend had great weather. It is old and needs some work as doors don't shut tight.

I would not stay there again, but our family has some great memories.

Beautiful view, great location!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property is ideal being it is directly across the street from the grocery store. The views are beautiful. As other reviews have pointed out there is no beach and if you care to traverse the swampy area you could make it to the water. The cabin is located less than a mile from the marina which was convenient for using a watercraft. Everything in the cabin functioned as expected except the indoor fireplace which we didn't need during the summer. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to rent this place again.

Cute Rustic Cabins with a spacious backyard

  • 3 of 5

Bigger than expected based on pictures. There was no toilet paper, dish soap, or trash bags on the property, so we needed up purchase unexpected supplies. More rustic than expected, windows that opened were not placed where we could get airflow. The person renting seemed inconvenienced and put out when I asked questions about the property. Beach and shore was accessible via a long stroll to sticky black mud that ate shoes. We enjoyed our stay, the group loved the cabin.
