Garden City house description

Beautiful open floor plan and an abundance of natural light. Amazing views from every room. This nearly 4000 sq ft home is perfect for couples, professionals, and adults seeking a year round peaceful retreat.

Parents please be advised that this is not a 'kid-friendly' property. Lots of breakables, hot tub, fitness equipment, brand new flooring etc. Families with toddlers and young children will definitely be happier at a more 'rough-and-tumble' property. This house is designed to be a tranquil and serene getaway for grown-ups. Please don't get us wrong...We love kids, (and pets too for that matter), but there are literally hundreds of vacation properties at Bear Lake that cater to large families with children. We have tried to create a more peaceful & sophisticated alternative.

Upstairs -
Kitchen: couples who love to cook will delight in our fully equipped kitchen. A huge granite island offers plenty of prep and serving/gathering space.

Great room: the kitchen opens up to the great room. Over sized leather sofas, hardwood flooring, wall to wall windows, artwork and eclectic trinkets gathered from travels abroad surround you. The perfect place to gather and talk or listen to music. There is an extensive collection of vinyl records for you to peruse and listen to.

Master bedroom: the master bedroom is very large with a wall of windows on both sides. It has a king size bed, spacious master bath, and private deck with hot tub. A rear deck at the back of the master suite also has an outdoor shower (seasonal).

Guest room: 1st floor guest room with king bed and access to 1st floor bath

Laundry: stacked w/d upstairs.

Downstairs: guest room with king bed, Guest Room with Queen Bed, bathroom, TV room, fitness room, music room, futon, and sectional sofa.

Outside: expansive decks, patios and outdoor seating areas, Fire Pit. Seasonal hot tub off of master bedroom deck.


Winter access: Year round - our road is plowed but this is Bear Lake, even plowed roads are steep and icy so a 4-wheel drive vehicle, chains and sense of adventure/humor is recommended :-)

** overflow parking of RVs, ATVs, Trailers & Snowmobiles is located at the entrance to neighborhood adjacent to the garbage collection point (aka Dumpsters).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are a military family who has lived all over the world. We stumbled upon Bear Lake in 2002 and fell in love with the area. We purchased our little cabin and over time upgraded and added to the original 1010 sq ft structure. It has become the gathering place for us, our diverse friends, and for photos, trinkets and silly treasures we found from travels all over the world. Everything in it has a story. No matter where we were sent or how far away from family & country, we knew our home at Bear Lake was waiting for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the moment we walked into the living room and took in the spectacular view of the lake and mountains, we fell in love. Every morning we wake up to see the sunrise over the mountains - all of our friends do it too - it has become a unique and meaningful tradition - so much so that friends and guests have begun sharing pics of their sunrises enjoyed during their stay.
