Accomidations were even better than we expected. Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We have rented 3 different Cabins at Bear Lake. All had different pluses and minuses. This cabin is a wonderful setup for family gathering. Rec Room in the garage has pool table that was in use much of the time. The pingpong table had been recently broken, may want to confirm if it has been replaced if pingpong is an important consideration. VRBO writeup stated that access to the Ideal Beach resort was included, we called to confirm prior to visit and learned that resort access is not normally included. However, the owner was happy to leave entry passes. The Web site should be updated if resort access is not included. We found that everyone stayed entertained at the cabin and we ended up not going down to the resort. During the winter only the hot tub at is open anyway. If resort access is important I would recommend you call ahead and request that passes be left at the cabin. Great value for the price. Would highly recommend. We would love to visit again.

Wonderful property with amazing views of the lake. Great parking if you have boats and toys. We had 4 vehicles with boats and jetskis and had plenty of room for more. There were linens and blankets for the beds but if you need to use the futons, there were none. A few extra linens and blankets would be nice. There were nice little extra touches like little soaps and Febreeze in all the bathrooms. We had 15 of us ranging from 6 mo to 88 and we were very comfortable! The beds are very tall so if you are short like granny (4' 11"), getting in and out of bed was an adventure. We found folding chairs and used them as step stools. However, my 6' 6" son loved them. Game room was fun and everything is furnished beautifully! Nice and clean. Beyond our expectations for a rental. Did I mention the amazing views? Overall excellent property and we will be back!

The cabin is beautiful. There was plenty of room for us. Clean and comfortable. You did not feel like you were in a hotel but a home away from home. Kitchen was very nice. Lots of room. Only 6 chairs at the table. There was a bench for 3 to 4 more but not at the table. With a party of twelve we made it work. We will definitely stay there again. Owner very nice and easy to work with. Next time I'll bring some extra blankets. Some of my party got cold at night. This will be an annual stay for my family.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion here. The cabin fit our large group wonderfully. We loved playing volleyball, pool, ping pong, and shooting basketballs. The large family area made it easy for us to all play games together. Some of the kids had a great time chasing jack rabbits around the area. The beds were comfortable enough, and the large kitchen made cooking meals easy. Thank you!

Best Cabin Ever

  • 5 of 5

Retreat on Badger was the best cabin our extended family has ever stayed in. The cabin was exceptionally clean upon our arrival. All of the utilities worked perfectly. The grandchildren enjoyed the game room, the outdoor playground and the outdoor room to play capture the flag. We also enjoyed the volleyball court. We also were able to witness a moose on the last day of our stay. I highly recommend this cabin.
