Our large group all had a great time. The staff went beyond expectations to make sure we had a great

  • 5 of 5

It is gorgeous place with everything we needed to spent quality time and relax with our family. It was a reunion to remember for ever. The shot gun deck was a big hit with our group. The eagle sighting were magnificent. Shand was excellent with the boat and giving everyone the perfect ride on the boat. Sharon was like a long lost friend that wanted to make sure we were treated like her favorite people in the world. It was a dream come true.

Most amazing wedding venue!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible location! We were able to house our immediate family and entire wedding party in the two houses for the whole weekend. The ceremony in the grove was beautiful, the reception on the front lawn was unforgettable! We had two tents delivered and tables for over 150 people and there was plenty of room. The maintenance staff and property manager were more than accommodating. This place is a gem in norther Utah!

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family reunion. Lots of space, lots to do, and wonderful accommodations! The check in should be more systematic so that you know all about the lights, fans, refrigerators, cleaning supplies etc. Or there could be a notebook with all this information. Otherwise we loved every minute and would recommend this paradise to anyone!!

This is a Water lovers Paradise !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just completed our 4th year at Bear Hollow Lakes Resort. I wish I could add another star to the 5 start rating! This private lake with two homes and on lake boat house is just incredible. After spending time at Lake Powell, Ut and Bear Lake Ut, fighting wind, crowds and hours traveling to and from, Bear Hollow Resort is THE place to truly relax and enjoy true paradise. Its just an hour from Salt Lake City.

You lack nothing when you arrive other than something to eat. No boat to trailer, no gear to bring unless you need your favorite ski or wake board. Sandy beach for the kids and a roped off swimming/play area.

Every year we come we never want to leave. The homes are decorated and furnished with the best of everything. Our family looks forward to coming every year. Its the only vacation we take all year were the parents can actually kick back and really enjoy the time away from home.

If you stay once you will come back. Sharron the property manager is personable and responsive.

If you and your family are looking for a WORLD CLASS water sports resort destination. Look no further. This is it!

This property was a perfect location for our family vacation, ages 5 to 71.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated 50 wonderful years of marriage with a family vacation to Bear Hollow Resort. Every member of our family really enjoyed our week long stay. We rented the power boat for great water sports activities and all of our children and grandchildren really had a blast. Walking or bicycling around the lake path was a daily activity as well. The volleyball net was up and used daily. And fishing was really good for our younger grandchildren who caught and released numerous bass, sunfish and catfish from the dock. The living conditions in the Lakeside Lodge and Beach House were just right for our family. The theater room was used every day. The indoor and outdoor kitchens made meal preparation extremely successful. The one thing we had not taken along were beach towels so we had to go into town and purchase some since the towels provided are for indoor bathing only. In summary I would rate this vacation location with the highest marks possible. Every one of our family wanted to know when we would be able to return. Thanks to Sharon and all the staff who helped to make this a tremendous experience.
