  • Beautiful property


    The house was beautiful and overall we really enjoyed our stay. There had been some recent paint and plaster repair work. There was dust from the work all over everything on the main floor. There had been only a minimal attempt at cleanup. The property should not have been rented until the proper cleanup was done.

  • Lovely mountain lodge


    We loved our stay at Bear Lake Reserve. The location was perfect for our multi-family vacation and we stayed busy with hiking, swimming, kayaking, and playing pickleball. The home itself was comfortable and well equipped, however the cleanliness was a little lacking when we arrived - the floors had crumbs and scuffs of mud which I was surprised to see, there was evidence of shaving residue in the main bathroom sink, the carpet (especially on the the stairs) was dirty and looked like it hadn't been vacuumed. It looked as if the porches hadn't been cleaned following the pollen season. However the kitchen, bedrooms, and the rest of the bathrooms were clean and comfortable and we had an enjoyable stay. The only other issue was that neither of the available air mattresses seemed to hold air overnight, my only word of caution is that this house is advertised as sleeping 10 but that would have to include the 2 air mattresses. There are 3 sizable rooms with king size bed (sleeping 6) and two twin beds (sleeps 2) in the attic above the garage (this space does not have air vents but was cool enough with fans and open windows in the evening). There is plenty of floor space in the attic for air mattresses to increase the sleeping space. Overall we would stay here again, but I do hope the air mattresses are replaced and the cleaners are encouraged to do a better job.

  • Absolutely Wonderful!


    The home is perfect in so many ways for a memorable family reunion. Our kids and grandkids had a wonderful time. The large kitchen, dining area and family room gave us plenty of space for cooking, eating and being together. We'll always cherish the memories.
