Great family lake vacation

  • 5 of 5

The lakefront house was a comfortable home away from home during our two week stay at Bear Lake. The interior is spacious with comfortable beds. It was clean. A few worn areas in carpets, loose hinges, etc. but remember this is a family friendly and dog friendly spot. Also, most of our time was spent outside, either on the deck or large grassy yard with fire pit and wonderful lake views. There is also a second grassy yard, (fully fenced in) off the garage so we could always find sun or shade. The access to the lake was through a soggy, marshy area, although we stayed early in the season when the water level was high. Many beach areas were in higher water, but we found plenty of great beach spots around the lake. The weather was great, and the kids loved playing lakeside. We even found some dog friendly beaches. The owner was very responsive and helpful. Bring some of your own beach chairs and towels. Overall, a fun vacation spot on Bear Lake.

Great beach house for family getaway

  • 4 of 5

I would have rated this place 5 stars (my husband wasn't as taken with it as I was). It has a fantastic location, just down the street from the local theater, a beautiful playground, several great restaurants. (everything is more expensive. I would bring anything you need) The house faces the beach. You do have to walk through the wetlands a bit to get to the beach. The beach was sandy, and not crowded (we had it to ourselves for pretty much the whole week)

The house is very dog friendly. There is a hose out front, and then the garage opens into a fenced backyard where they can dry off.

the firepit overlooking the water is perfect. My MIL actually took a nap on the lawn it is so peaceful.

They have provided everything, from crock pot, to spices, to family board games. the 3rd bathroom makes this house very comfortable for larger groups. the fans in each room made the nights comfortable too. We had 6 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs and everyone had the space we needed.

The owner was very available when I emailed with questions, both before and during our stay.

My husband had a few small issues that didn't bother me. The screen door sticks, one of the cabinets was loose, the house is carpeted (which is tricky to keep clean for a beach house and kids), the drains are slow (we bought a bottle of drano and it helped). The bunk beds are fabulous for kids, but have some slats broken and didn't look sturdy enough for adults.

We will definitely be staying here again. it was exactly what we needed.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our families of 12 had a great stay at this house. It was bigger than expected with a nice big deck and large yard to play in. Kids had fun playing with the chess board and dominoes. There were plenty of cooking untensils and the fridge in the garage was nice! We will definitely stay here in the future! We usually go to bear lake 3 times every summer! As far as the beach access goes, you have to walk a decent ways to get there through some muck which is a pain if you're carrying chairs, food, canopy you have to go all the way back up to use the restroom. It's better to just go to rendezvous or north beach IMO. Just a few suggestions for the listing on VRBO. It lists the house as being 1600 sq ft and also 1300 sq ft. It also says there are 2 double bunk beds in one area and in another area it says 1 double bunk bed. ( there is 1 double bunk bed ) the listing also says bring your own towels for beach and bath. ( bath towels are provided )

Wonderful Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. The house was clean and nicely decorated. The views were beautiful. The owner was very friendly and helpful. It was well stocked. The fire pit made for fun evenings of smores and family time. The access to the beach was great. We are already talking about going back! We highly recommend it!

Our July 10th stay at Bear Lake 395275

  • 3 of 5

As we drove on to the property, the first thing we saw was the outdoor trash dumpster full to overflowing with garbage. Literally, so full there was garbage on the ground. The kitchen and bathroom floors had not been cleaned. We had to do that. My understanding was that if on our departure, we left one load of laundry dried in the dryer, and one load washed in the washer, we would receive a $20.00 cleaning refund. We not only did comply with that, but washed dried and folded all the towels; bath and kitchen. I have had no refund. There were only 3 kitchen garbage bags. Because of the outdoor trash mess, we had to drive to Logan to purchase heavy duty black trash bags and kitchen bags. There were no bags in Garden City markets that would manage the outdoor trash. This was a huge inconvenience timewise and $$$wise. As for the location of the home, it was nice. We found walk to the beach quite nice, other than having to get past the neighbor's overzealous black lab.

Owner's Response: Sorry about trash. I would have appreciated a call so I could have driven over and corrected situation. You were not given cleaning credit because cleaning fee was not charged - computer glitch. So you were $80 ahead. Next time please use the phone if things are not right.

Clean, well provisioned, close to water

  • 4 of 5

We stayed three nights in mid-July here for a family reunion. The house slept six adults and 6 kids comfortably. It is stocked with any durable goods you might need (bathroom linens, kitchen pots/pans/towels/untencile/garbage bags, etc - even spices). There were a variety of games we enjoyed playing, and there are two televisions with dish. There is also decent speed internet/WiFi that handled our combined 8 devices. There is no A/C, but there are fans in each room to circulate the air. The house is very clean, and the layout is nice. Really, we were all comfortable for our stay. I was especially happy there was a washer and dryer (and even laundry soap!), and the extra fridge in the garage. We also made use of the fire pit a lot. The property does sit right at the lake edge, but depending on how much water is in the lake (reservoir, actually) the waters edge can be a decent walk through silty muck to get to. You won't be able to launch boats or jetskis, and be prepared to portage your kayak or canoe through the muck. There was plenty of clear (vegetation free) area to wade and swim once you walk out there. I would come back or recommend the place to family and friends!

Owner's Response: thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed our home on Bear Lake - unfortunately this not the year of having accessible beach. We prefer the lake level to be lower which exposes a fantastic sandy beach in front of our home. Normally the best beach access is through the public beach just a short walk south named Hodges Beach. Hodges has been closed so far as the water level is high. We have always launched our boat at the Marina and then anchored off of shore in front of our house. AC may be coming - stay tuned!
