  • Christmas Vacation

    "We had a wonderful family reunion for a magical Christmas 2014 at Papa Bears Cave and Den. Everyone loved everything about the cabin! Five families with adults, teenagers, younger children, and toddlers were able to come. When we pulled up to the cabin we first noticed the Christmas lights on the roof and once we entered the cabin we loved the Christmas decorations and the tree inside. There were activities for everyone with plenty of space. Ping pong and foosball tournaments were a big hit in the heated garage. Craig recommended were we could rent snowmobiles and the service we recieved was exceptional. Craig was extremely accommodating in every aspect of our stay including suggesting a wonderful Santa to make a surprise visit on Christmas Eve! Needless to say Santa was a wonderful surprise for the younger children. My wife and I have rented various cabins at Island Park 12 out of the last 13 years for the Christmas holiday with just our family. This year we sought a large cabin to accomadate her siblings families along with Grandma and Grandpa. This was the cleanest, most organized, updated, and elegant cabin we have ever stayed in. The price was extremely modest for all the amenities and comforts this cabin has. We searched for other large reunion cabins and found one but the owner was extremely rude. We decided to keep searching and with our initial conversation with Craig and looking over other guest comments we decided to stay at the Papa Bears Cave. We have all decided we would like to stay at the Papa Bears Cave and Den again in the near future. We made wonderful family memories and it was hard to leave. If you are looking for an incredible place to stay with a great person to rent from, look no further, you have just found it!"

  • New Year's Retreat

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our family of 11 adults and 7 children rented this beautiful cabin for our New Year's celebration. We found the rental online and liked the looks of the place. When we walked through the door we couldn't have been more pleased. It is far bigger and nicer than one would expect. The heat was on and felt very welcoming when we arrived. Layout of the cabin is ideal for cooking, family time together, and separate time in bedrooms. Good sleeping arrangements for adults and children. Biggest drawback to the upstairs is the lack of insulation in the walls. Every noise could easily be heard which isn't the best for families with young children. Hot tub was enjoyed and the provided robes were much appreciated. The large shower in main floor bathroom worked very well for those using the hot tub. I had called earlier to see if a griddle, waffle iron, or large pots were available. The rental agent was unable to tell me. I think a listing of what the kitchen contains would be helpful. We brought up the extra things we would need, but found the cabin had most of them. We had noticed the large barbeque in the pictures and brought up steaks for a birthday celebration. It may have been the cold weather, but we could never get any heat from the grill (just a flame; perhaps fuel regulator frozen)and had to broil steaks in oven instead. Overall we had a wonderful experience there and would love to return, winter or summer. The surroundings inside and out were beautiful. We feel the owner is doing an excellent job in providing wonderful accommodations, clean and comfortable. Manager responded on 1/7/2015: Thank you for staying at the Buffalo River Escape. I'll have someone check out the BBQ gill and see if there is something wrong with it. Thanks again and please come again."
