  • Wonderful Relaxing Stay

    "We loved our stay at this property. The house was clean and nicely decorated. The views were beautiful. The owner was very friendly and helpful. It was well stocked. The fire pit made for fun evenings of smores and family time. The access to the beach was great. We are already talking about going back! We highly recommend it!"

  • Best place to stay when visiting Bear Lake

    "We love this house! It has a perfect layout for large or small groups. With so much to do at the house you may never make it to the lake! Our kids were completely entertained. The slides between floors is genius. Everything is well thought out for a perfect stay. I was very impressed that they had a crib and toddler beds, they have thought of everything. The kitchen is amazing. It was well stocked with everything we needed, and there was plenty of seating for a large group. We felt completely at home. We will definitely stay here again."

  • Family Reunion

    "The cabin was great. We slept 20 with room to spare. Kitchen was well stocked. Laundry was handy with full washer and dryer. Loft, play room and back yard was great for the grandkids to romp and play. Kids loved the bunk beds. The view was spectacular especially with the moon rising above the mountains to the east and reflecting on Bear Lake. Playing games on the deck was fun as we looked over the alpine scenery."

  • Love this home!!

    "We loved staying in this beautiful, relaxing oasis. We had a large family reunion with several adults and a ton of children. This home is so well planned that there are plenty of rooms for privacy when needed as well as great gathering areas for numerous people for group activities or a late night talking session. The home is clean and check-out was a cinch. (No massive cleaning responsibilities at the end of an awesome vacation.) There is a private yard with room for fun and games and maybe a tent or two as well. Parking was perfect with an abundance of safe parking spaces. We didn't have to shuffle cars once!! Close to Garden City but far enough away to have peace and quiet. The kitchen functioned perfectly to feed a crowd too. All in all a great place to stay. We've stayed at other vacation homes near Bear Lake and this one is by far our favorite!! We plan to return often. You'll LOVE it here!!"

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.
