  • great place for a family gathering


    Spacious rooms, sleeping accommodations, well stocked kitchen with all the necessaries for preparing food for large groups, outdoor activities available - it seemed there was something for everyone. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Nothing bad to say about this trip!

  • Perfect for us


    We had a great time during our stay. The lodge was perfect for our family. We were lucky & had good weather, but the great room in the lodge would save the day had it been raining. The owner of the lodge is awesome to work with as well. Plenty of activities for all ages. The canyon doesn't have cell service (T-Mobile at least). But had zero problems using Wi-Fi calling/texting. Hopefully we'll be back next year...

  • Family Reunion in Preston


    The guest house at the Cub River Lodge was an awesome spot for our family reunion. We had 6 family units, a total of 33 people, and there was plenty of space. The guest lodge is connected to the office and you are in an RV park. There is volleyball and tetherball in the campground that we enjoyed. In the house there is a kitchen meant for large groups with 2 fridges and 3 stove/ovens and everything you need for cooking. There is not a dishwasher, so come prepared with paper products. There is a dining area as well as a huge conference room, with lots of extra tables and chairs. We used the dining area for serving and the large room for eating, playing games and just hanging out. There is also a large family room with lots of couches, chairs and a big TV for our evening family stuff. There are 5 good-sized bedrooms. Most of the grandkids pulled the sleeping/mattress pads out of the loft and slept on those. There are 4 half bathrooms and 3 separate shower rooms which was great for our large group. The location is beautiful, but a bit remote. The nearest grocery store is Stokes, about 20 minutes away. Bear Lake is about an 80-90 minute drive. There are some hiking/walking trails, but if you want to do a lot of outdoor stuff, I would recommend planning before you go. Denise was an amazing host, very accommodating and easy to reach. We loved our stay and will happily return.

  • Wonderful Cabin for a Reunion


    We just finished our 40 people family reunion at the Cub River Lodge and had an absolutely wonderful time! The place was big enough that we could spread out so we weren't on top of each other. We loved the big conference room. It's where we ate our meals, played board games, puzzled, had a talent show, danced, held church services, and played some moving games. The weekend we went was pretty hot (about 90 degrees) and we needed to be careful to keep windows open at night and closed during the day. But if we did that well the air conditioning units and swamp coolers kept things nice and comfortable. Denice, the manager, was wonderful to work with- quick to get back to us and just really kind. She even gave us a little extra time to check out. Such a sweetheart.A couple of notes for people considering this location. First, some of these reviews mention a hot tub and swimming pool. Maybe those reviews are just outdated but there are neither at this cabin. Second, You need to know that this cabin is attached to an RV campground and right next to a popular restaurant. There is no private outdoor area attached to the cabin. When we first arrived I was very surprised and felt like this listing really misrepresented the location. The pictures show such beautiful open mountain land. But when we arrived on a Friday around 5:30 the place was hopping with lots of traffic in and out for the restaurant and a packed RV campground. The office of the campground is even attached to the cabin. I was really disappointed. Having said that, as our large group settled in we found this was still just a perfect location for what we wanted. We spent most of our time indoors, but with the heat we likely would have anyway. The restaurant is only open Thurs-Sat evenings and so the traffic we first were worried about was very short lived. The restaurant also owns a decent piece of grassy land and when we asked they let us play on it during the day. And we still enjoyed the volleyball net, tetherball, and large swing in the RV campground- just didn't feel like we could let the kids loose with strangers right there. Like I said, I'd recommend this to any group with lots of kids- the cabin and Denise were WONDERFUL. I just wish I'd had accurate expectations about the surrounding location. Thanks for such a memorable weekend Denise!

    From the owner: "Dear Amy S.
    Your group was wonderful, and we loved hosting you! I am truly sorry for the misconceptions of a hot tub and swimming pool, as we have repeatedly tried to alert those companies that, yet to this day, refuse to remove some wording...."google, etc.", it has been extremely frustrating and still is. However, we have all the correct info on our website, "". We have made some amazing upgrades inside and out and truly love serving our guests. We do hope you will come again in the future!"

  • Cub River Lodge - good choice for us


    My wife and I rented the lodge for ourselves, our children and their families - total of 32 people, about half of which were children under 12. We enjoyed the house, liked the fact that the bathrooms are not attached to bedrooms so they were available to all, and the large room was big enough for all of the children to sleep on foam pads, several tables to be set up for feeding everyone, and still room to spare. We all had a great time.

    The double beds (6 ea) did not seem comfortable for several of the couples. Also, it was hard to keep the lodge from getting a bit too warm in the afternoons, but we were there at the end of June it it was unseasonably warm.

    The owner was very helpful and accommodating.
