Take your shoes off and enjoy this beautiful 4,400 square feet European-themed retreat. With six bedrooms, four baths, and a breathtaking panoramic view of Bear Lake's blue changing hues from all three floors, Valhalla is designed for all types of Bear Lake visitors: families and friends looking for an intimate location for a reunion, church and sports groups wanting extra room and close proximity to Bear Lake, small businesses interested in a unique lakeside retreat, or adventurers' looking for lodging after a full day outdoors. Valhalla is available year round.


Valhalla's main floor is spacious, open, and handicap accessible. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large kitchen, dining room, living room, and lots of windows that face Bear Lake, offer stunning views of the lake and mountains at all hours of day or night. A large, comfortable porch is perfect for watching the sunrise.

The Peer Gynt Suite (Master Bedroom) is designed with relaxation and privacy in mind. The focus of the room is a king size, hand-carved, Norwegian bed—with a memory foam mattress for extra comfort. Large windows allow for sunlight and lake breezes. The room includes a private master bathroom and walk-in closet.

The second bedroom is the Bergen Room (a Port City in Norway), which has a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress. This bedroom has mountain views and a maritime theme.

The third bedroom is the Provence Room (because the striking blue of Bear Lake resembles the beautiful azure waters of the Mediterranean). This bedroom also has a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress and lake views.

There is a great room on the main floor with a large kitchen, dining room and family gathering area—all with panoramic views of the lake. The kitchen has granite counter tops, two ovens, two refrigerators, a dishwasher, a stove, a microwave, a crock pot, and everything else you need to prepare nourishing gourmet meals. The spacious dining room has two solid wood tables that will sit 16 adults. There is also a small children's table with chairs for four children, as well as a high chair.

Valhalla's living room boasts gorgeous views of the lake. Three couches and a recliner allow visitors to enjoy the 56' flat screen with DVD, VCR and satellite TV. There are books and DVDs available, but don't forget to bring your own favorite DVDs.

There is a second full bathroom and a laundry room on the main level.

Upstairs is the Boren Hite (Bear Cave) with a huge bedroom, large bathroom, loft with bunk beds and twin beds, and play area for the kids.

The large upstairs bedroom with a Troll Haugen (Troll Knoll) theme has a deck with views overlooking the lake, two queen size beds with memory foam mattresses, and beautiful log furniture. The loft has two sets of bunk beds, plus two twin beds. There is a play area for children with large stuffed bear cushions, furniture, toys, books, and chairs.

Downstairs has a Fisk Haven (Fish Harbor) theme. There is a bedroom with a futon, a separate room with a set of full size bunk beds, and a porta-crib available. A ping pong table and foosball table are certain to create some friendly competition. There is also a second TV for DVDs and games. The fourth bathroom has a jetted tub and travertine tile.

From downstairs a three-car garage can be accessed. A large barbecue grill in the garage can be easily rolled outside to grill your favorite steaks. There are two picnic tables in the garage if you would like to eat outside. There is off street parking for 5 vehicles and boat parking. No overnight street parking is allowed by the local community management.

This home will comfortably sleep 16 guests (max number of guests). Children 3 and under are not counted toward the maximum number of guests. Valhalla is located on a hill overlooking Bear Lake and is a short walk to the bike & walking path in Garden City. Valhalla is just a short distance from white beaches, boat and wave runner rental facilities, famous Bear Lake raspberry shakes, Pickleville Playhouse, small town gift shops and specialty stores, well-loved restaurants, and to recreational activities available at Bear Lake. For those interested in winter activities, we are located 15 minutes from Beaver Mountain ski resort. Snowmobiling is steps away.

Valhalla is paradise at Bear Lake. Come stay with us. VelKomen!

About Julie, Amy, Tricia, or Tierney

About: My wife and I moved to Bear Lake about 5 years ago and started Bear Lake Cabin Rentals about 4 years ago. We love the Bear Lake area. The lake is such a beautiful blue and the area is so nice and charming. The winters can be cold but they are so peaceful and uncongested. It is a great place to get away from the busy city life.

Why Garden City:

We enjoy managing properties for people and not only building a relationship with the owners but all the great guest that stay with us. We have a lot of people that come back year after year to enjoy all that Bear Lake has to offer

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:

During the summer months there are tons of great outdoor activities. There is the Minnetonka cave, tons of hiking and biking trails. A huge beautiful lake for boating, water skiing and wake boarding. In the winter Beaver Mountain is just 15 minutes up the canyon and is an undiscovered treasure for the ski or snowboard enthusiast. There are hundreds of miles of terrain for snowmobiling and some great sledding hills too.

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

The check in and out process was very smooth. The location is lovely and easily accessible, and there was enough parking for two vehicles in the garage, four on the driveway, and a truck/trailer on the gravel patch to the side. The dining area is large and accommodated us well. Towels were provided in each of the bathrooms, and the bathrooms and kitchen were clean. The house was adequate for our needs, but shows a lot of wear. The bed linens are very worn. The refrigerator took many hours to cool down, and ice cream never got fully frozen. We were on the verge of throwing out food that we felt didn't get cooled well enough, but instead put blocks of ice in the fridge to help it get to temperature more quickly. There is not air conditioning in the house, but fans are provided for each room. It was uncomfortably warm for the people sleeping in the upstairs for the first couple of nights, even with the fans running nonstop.

Despite the quirks, it was a good stay, and good for extended families.

We enjoyed our stay at the Valhalla

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on the 4th of July week-end. We really liked the big eating area. It was in the living room, but it cools off at night. We enjoyed the view off the front porch and enjoyed watching the fireworks up and down the coast. It was clean and had what it said it did. It was a accurate description of the property. It was great to have the washer and dryer with the soap. It is evident it was the place of a happy family. There was some confusion about the voucher. It seems to be better to rent the play equipment at the time you want it. If you reserve it a head of time, and pay the down payment they will not reimburse you when you give them the voucher. All in all, it was a enjoyable experience. Thank you

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. That is the perfect property for seeing all the fireworks. We apologize for the confusion on the voucher. We have actually spoken to company and they believe they have figured out a way with their CC processor to be able to refund those who use a voucher and need a refund. I apologize for the inconvenience. Come back and enjoy Bear Lake in the fall when the leaves are changing colors and take a ATV or side-by-side ride!

Loved the house. Lots of room for our family. We picked a really hot week to go so having no air conditioning was hard. Close th the beach. All the notes that are around the house are a little unnerving but you have a great place. Thanks so much.
