About Karlette Johnson

When we received to opportunity to purchase a cabin near beautiful Bear Lake, we couldn't sign the papers fast enough. Not just because it was a gorgeous vacation home, but because it would provide so many wonderful opportunities for our family of seven to get away, spend precious time together, and create lasting memories with our fast-growing children. It is so important to take time out for yourself and for your family every now and then which is why we decided to share our mountain gem with others. If you decide to hide away in our 'Cubby Hole', you'll easily see why it's one of our first choices for a get-away! Breath-taking views, rejuvenating mountain air, and 5-minute access to small town atmosphere. . . for these reasons and many more, it will be your first choice for a home-away-from-home.

Karlette Johnson purchased this cabin in 2012

Wonderful Family Friendly Place

  • 5 of 5

The Cubby Hole was perfect for our small family reunion at Bear Lake. We were delighted by all of the unexpected bonuses that made it fun to be there. Some examples: the "toy room," complete with foosball table, train table, and video games setup; lots of additional children's toys under the stairs; grill, hot tub, deck, porch swing; large DVD library; multiple living room seating areas; washer/dryer; and my personal favorite: the very well-stocked kitchen. Have you ever tried to cook without the right tools?

Everything was clean and well-maintained. The property manager was easy to reach and very helpful.

The view of Bear Lake was gorgeous. We were a quick 5-7 minute drive down to Garden City, with its justifiably famous raspberry shakes and water sports. On our last day there, we tried out the Go-kart facility down the hill. It was a great experience. We would totally recommend the Cubby Hole as a great place to stay.

Perfect for a family with little kiddo's.

  • 5 of 5

We had two families staying at the Cubby Hole and both had young children. This cabin was awesome. The games helped entertain the children in our down time and allowed us as parents to do some cooking, or reading. It was beautiful inside and the view of the lake was gorgeous!! We came late in the summer and rather than using the A/C we opened up the windows and setup a fan in the master bedroom upstairs to blow the hot air out the window (fan facing the window to blow the hot air out). This worked really well to pull the cooler outside air into the house through the windows and pushed the hotter air out. There was plenty of room for all of us (12 guests) and the accommodations were really nice. I was a little nervous that there wouldn't be enough time to get the laundry (towels and sheets) all washed before leaving the morning of checkout; but the washer and dryer are quite large. We washed the used towels the night before and the sheets the morning we left, this allowed us to run the towels through the dryer twice since it didn't quite get dry in a single go. Everything went smoothly. The cabin is only 10 minutes from the Bear Lake Marina, so coming and going was really easy. There was a small market only about 7 minutes from the cabin so we could grab some food items we'd forgotten; and the local restaurants were very polite and I highly recommend the raspberry shakes! Delicious!! We didn't use the hot tub as much as I thought we would since the cabin was so comfortable and we preferred to spend our time down at the beach, but the day we did use it - it was nice to come home to and was really clean inside. The outside of the cabin made it look a lot smaller than it felt inside, and being able to sit on the covered porch to watch the sunrise over the lake was absolutely stunning!! I would love to come back again sometime!!!

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Cubby Hole was the perfect getaway for our group! We loved the layout of the cabin. It was so nice to have a group playing cards in the kitchen while another group watched a good movie in the front room. The beds were super comfy and there were plenty of them! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. The location was easy to find and had a beautiful view of the lake. We enjoyed the hot tub as well. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We had a wonderful and memorable trip!
