  • Amazing View

    "This cabin was perfect for our vacation! All of the photos accurately reflect the condition of the cabin and I loved that they had so many pics posted. Prior to our trip I emailed the owner on several different occassions and always received a prompt reply to my questions. The owner was very helpful as well as the property mgmt company. The BBQ did not work the first night we arrived. I called the mgmt company the next morning before we went out on the lake, by the time we had returned it had been fixed. The cabin is close to the marina and the Quick and Tasty. Although this restaurant is known for the raspberry shakes, in my opinion they have the best home cut fries around! :) The best, or at least my favorite part about this cabin was the deck!! The view from this deck is AMAZING!! I would recommend this renting this cabin to anyone. I will also be checking the availability of it for our next vacation up to Bear Lake! Loved it!"

  • Review of Shelton Lodge

    "This was an excellent lodge, one of the very best accomodations we have found over the years. The facilities, equipment (especially kitchen appliances and grill) were top of the line and in excellent working condition. Air conditioning too. The home theater was really fun and comfortable and made a nice overflow bedroom. If there was an issue, it was with the parking (tight and steep) and a couple of the bunk beds tucked away in a closet sized space we had to use. Would recommend some protection against toppling off the road above the lodge when parking. Beds were really comfy and bedding clean and adequate and dishes, cooking utensils and paper goods fine. Thanks for having it clean and ready for us. Recommend considering fossil hunting in Kemmerer, WY area. That really worked out great. We used Fossil Safari although are others in the area. Nearby pond was great fun too."

  • Great Thanksgiving away from home.

    "We have taken up the tradition of traveling every other year as a family for Thanksgiving. This last Thanksgiving was a lot of fun in many ways because of this house. We were able to enjoy each other as a family because of this house and for that I am very Thankful. The house offered even more than the pictures showed. The upstairs bedrooms were so comfy and beautiful for the adults and the downstairs was perfect for all the kids. The bunk beds were a hit with all of them. The indoor hot tub was also a perfect for this home. There was an extra refrigerator in the garage for all the extra food. The kitchen was big enough for everyone to cook and prepare meals. We really loved the outdoor fir pit. We really can say nothing bad about this house. Andrea was so easy to work with and very helpful with all our questions and needs. Thank you so much for allowing us to use this home."

  • What a great spot!

    "We spent three great days at the Lodge for a family reunion. Fifteen on of us including four couples. The Lodge is great with lots of bedrooms and great gathering places. The parking area easily accommodated our cars and toy trailers. We enjoyed the nice lawn area for games and had a great BBQ. Spent good times on the deck with beautiful lake views. Its a super spot."

Bear Lake Travel Tips

Bear Lake Vacation Rentals Are Where Utah Meets Idaho

Bear Lake straddles the border between Utah and Idaho. This beautiful lake area is accessed by US Highways 39 and 30 or 89 off Interstate 15. It is within easy access of Salt Lake City International Airport. With four distinct seasons, Bear Lake condos attract visitors all year-round. The area is the historic home of the Shoshoni Tribes and was a trapping area in the mid-1800s. It was first settled by Mormon pioneers in 1863 and the county is named after the group’s leader, Rich County.

Bear Lake Vacation Houses by the "Caribbean of the Rockies"

The lake itself is some 20 miles by eight miles and has 48 miles of shoreline; at its deepest point, it is 208 feet. Bear Lake vacation rentals are close to three recreation areas--Bear Lake Marina, East Beach and Rendezvous Beach. The water of the lake is so intensely blue that it is nicknamed "the Caribbean of the Rockies." In fact, the explanation for the incredible color is the reflection from the accumulated limestone in the lake. In summer, the 70,000-acre lake offers activities such as swimming, boating and sailing. There are also areas with ramps set aside for waterskiing and wakeboarding. Visitors are welcome to bring their own watercraft or use rentals. It is also a popular spot for anglers with fish such as cutthroat trout and unique species such as the Bonneville cisco, whitefish and Bear Lake sculpin.

There are literally hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and using ATVs. Starting at Utah State Marina, the Bear Lake Scenic Bike Trail is over four miles of paved area ending at Ideal Beach. There is a raised wood walkway, Garden City Park Walkway, where visitors can study the markers telling the history of the area. Visitors may also want to hike the easy mile of the Limber Pine Trail through a 2,000-year-old limber pine. The reward for hiking or driving the Bloomington Lake Trail is a tiny glacial lake with waterfalls, set in the incredible cliffs. This is a particularly beautiful hike in summer when the wildflowers are in full bloom. The Highline Trail is accessible from various areas including the canyons of Bloomington, Paris, Emigration and Logan. This 55-mile trail is used for hiking, biking, horseback riding and motorcycles. During three of the four seasons, the weather is perfect for golf and there are plenty of courses scattered around the hillsides. Nature lovers will enjoy Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge, dedicated to preserving the local animal, bird and plants on over 18,000 acres. The area is also home to moose, deer and trumpeter swans. Those brave enough to venture underground will enjoy a walk through the spectacular half-mile long Minnotonka Cave.

Plenty of Winter Activities at Bear Lake

In winter, Bear Lake vacation houses are ideal for a variety of fun activities such as snowmobiling over its 350 miles of trails, downhill and cross country skiing as well as ice fishing on the lake. Visitors at this time of year will find the Hardware Ranch area a great place to spot elk. The variety of terrains and trails make it a great place for those who love the snow.

Bear Lake Condos are Impressive Properties

Bear Lake condos are as impressive as the region they are located in. Each home is unique and offers a wide variety of luxuries to make visitors feel at home. Large properties with indoor play areas will be perfect for a large group with children. Cozy cabins are perfect for a couple or small family. Most provide full laundry areas, fully equipped kitchens, and many include extras such as full entertainment systems, even an in-home theater, wifi internet and much more.
