    This property is amazing! My sister has a cabin 2 doors down so between the 2 places we had a lot of family. The beds were so comfortable, lots of toys for the kids and the best kitchen set up. Everyone is ready to go again next year!Forgot to mention the wonderful beach area and terrific neighbors!

  • Perfect family vacation home!


    We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house. It was perfect for our family of 6. The beach was beautiful and the house was well decorated, comfortable and clean. Janine was a joy to work with and we were able to extend our stay by an extra night! We are really looking forward to returning next summer! Thank you for sharing your Bear Lake beach house with us!
