2 Golf Courses, Bicycling, Boating, four wheeling, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, Cave Tours, Hunting, Fishing, Restaurants, Gift Shops

If you have a large group, don't rent two or three places, here is the answer.

Is it hard to keep the kids happy and contained? The indoor amenities we have will make their vacation fun and memorable.

The fun never stops, but you can, as the entire playground is on its own floor, and has observation

windows to supervise the kids. You owe it to yourself and your group to never have to look to find a

place large enough to comfortably accommodate you ever again. We hope you enjoy your stay with us.

About Tyson

We believe that sharing awesome experiences makes the world an amazing place!

Tyson purchased this house in 2009

Why Tyson chose Garden City

I chose to build this home because I have a large and close extended family and a great deal of friends that that all travel together. We absolutely love the Bear Lake area, and our issue was that there was nothing that existed that would comfortably house all of us, allow us to have entertainment, have room to cook a meal, and keep the kids occupied and happy. This house does it all. The indoor playground is absolutely great, because it keeps the kids happy and occupied, especially when we go up in the winter for skiing, and snowmobiling. The kids are able to enjoy things they would normally do outside, all inside the house. I also have the middle floor of the house with six observation windows and a railing so the adults have their space, but have a good idea of what the kids are up to.

What makes this house unique

Benefits you will enjoy while staying here is simply that a large family can be comfortable, have a great time, and relax, knowing the kids have tons of things to do, and they are safely within the walls of the house.

Wonderful location with a wonder view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of 7 at the end of February and had a blast! The house was clean and accommodated so many. We loved the bottom floor with the basket ball court and trampoline and took full advantage. We played out back in the snow and air hockey everyday. The laundry on site was a great bonus also! The location is right off of the main road and easy to get to. The Sunrise view over bear lake and the rocky mountains was the best part! The kitchen includes everything you need to make any kind of dinner, breakfast or snack. The location is perfect for skiers of all levels as close as it is to Beaver Mountain, the best kept secret in north UT! We will defiantly be visiting again!

More exceptional than words/pictures captured!

  • 5 of 5

The resort home amazed everyone at our family get together. From the time you walk in absorbing the beauty and quality of construction, you notice how impeccably clean and well appointed the property is. The owner keeps it maintained as a 5 star resort. We never had a need to cal?:-P

though he left his cell number just in case. One of the greatest assets was the fun and game activities for all ages. It brought out the kid hiding in each of us! At night everyone slept like a baby. We cannot wait another

Beautiful, Fun Property for Family and Friends!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time with our kids and friends at this amazing property. With two large families, there were 4 adults and 10 kids (ages 5 to 18), and there was tons of room to spare! (It's not often I can say there were "only" 14 of us.) Tyson was great to work with while booking our stay and provided great information about local sights and activities. Bear Lake and the surrounding area is a blast! The property is in a great location and is absolutely beautiful, and the views are fantastic. We were pleased to arrive to a property that was immaculately clean and ready for our stay. The kids had a blast in the indoor and outdoor play areas, and I don't think a moment went by that there wasn't someone on the indoor trampoline (that includes sleeping at night, of course). There was plenty to keep the kids entertained (did I mention the spiral slide that goes between floors?), so the adults could relax, carry on an uninterrupted conversation, play board games, etc. I cannot say enough about this property - book it now, you'll love it!

The pictures don't do this place justice.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We loved the place. It is a huge house. It has lots of fun things to do. It is a great floorplan. It was clean and had all the things we need, like towels, dishes, cooking stuff. It has Dish network and a bunch of sports channels.

We will definitely come again. Such a killer place for a reasonable price.

This is seriously one of the coolest places ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything including a slide that goes 3 floors. Everybody in our family had a room and were very comfortable. This place has everything including an 8 burner cook top and two extra large fridges. This place defines luxury. We loved the theater room after a long day. The host was very accommodating and quickly resolved a problem we had trying to figure out the theater equipment. I will be back every year.
