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.

We had a great time - beautiful views and home

Not clean in need of repair

  • 3 of 5

Bar-que dirty did not work; house needs a deep clean, window, stairs, floors,walls.

Water depenser on the fridge sticks water does not shut off. No bath mats very few towels. Consider the age of the mattresses and need for replacement.

The deck was great, the fire pit was super. Enjoyed the use of the many TVs

And Internet. Enjoyed the pool and tennis courts.

Very nice with a few problems..

  • 4 of 5

We liked the house except for a few areas. We liked that it had two refrigerators and an extra freezer. We liked the hot tub. The little playground area needs more sand, upkeep, toys so the small children could use it more comfortably. The grill worked well once we figured it out. Did you have instructions? I can't remember. The property was not dusted properly. Some of the beds in the basement didn't have the sheets put on them and we had to do that. The games and the books there were nice. The area for parking a lot of cars was appreciated. You made it easy for us to take possession of by just having us go there. The pool area and tennis courts were kept up well and were used extensively. We appreciated the close access to the marina. Very convenient. The lodge was close to everything we wanted to do. We really enjoyed the fire pit for sitting around at night and roasting marshmellows. Thanks.

Great lodging for our family reunion.

Wonderful cabin, great family reunion setting!

  • 4 of 5

Really fun cabin, good sized open area for gathering. Good sized kitchen and serving area. Hot tub was a hit. Good parking area. Really enjoyed the tennis court and grass area. Really enjoyed the $100 voucher, rented 4 canoes for a couple hours. Swimming pool was a great option that we didn't end up using.

Couple improvement suggestions: dishwasher worked, but needed to be secured; frig water sticks on and spills all over the kitchen floor; internet not reliable.

Fabulous Lodge-Management Company was Most Accommodating, Breathtaking Views, Only one Inconvenience

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Chickadee Lodge in Harbor Village in early summer 2015. The view was Beyond Breathtaking! Our expectations were met and exceeded. The Lodge was very clean and well stocked with the necessary appliances, cleaning supplies, linens, and towels our large crowd needed during our stay. This lodge was able to accommodate everyone very comfortably without people tripping over each other. There were always quiet areas for solitude as well as large enough areas for groups and games. Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly and left with wonderful memories.

The only inconvenience we came across was that the thermostats were confusing to operate and in the end, we did not master them. There was plenty of refreshing air conditioning, however at night, many people were either cold or were too hot to sleep, depending on which room they were in.

We wish there had been a yard/lawn area for the kids to play close by, but this may happen in the future. There was ample lawn for fun games down by the Harbor Village pool and tennis courts which we enjoyed.

For those with toddlers, I would recommend bringing age appropriate toys from home as there were no indoor toys for their specific age group.

The management company was Most Accommodating. They provided every service they could offer for a family member with a handicap, and they provided pack'n plays for toddlers at no additional cost. They were also very courteous in coordinating a specialized check out time for one family member with a scheduled business web meeting.

This is a perfect location for a large group to enjoy their Bear Lake experience. We highly recommend it and we hope future reunions bring us back to this fantastic lodge.

The Unclean Cabin - Not Worth The Price Paid!

  • 3 of 5

We had a group 23 and stayed from 7/14/2013-7/20/2013.

Pros: This lodge had a beautiful view of Bear Lake and the surrounding area. Large and spacious. Potential to be a real gem. The cabin was set back and in a quiet area. Plenty of parking spaces. There is a refrigerator and deep freezer outside as well as the refrigerator inside. Nice big walk-in pantry for storing lots of food. There was a TV & DVD player in almost every room. We really enjoyed using the fire pit on the front porch. The kitchen was huge and accommodated all of us for meals.

Cons: Desperately needed to be deep cleaned! For the price we paid, the cleanliness in the cabin was totally lacking. There was food and trash in between the couch cushions (applies to all of the couches), carpets were NOT vacuumed, downstairs shower had black mold underneath the mat, downstairs area rug was filthy (and underneath was worse), outside grill & griddle were COVERED in grease & grime, and all surfaces were dusty. It was despicable.

Both master bedroom mattresses need replacement - they're old & sunken-in. The couples that slept in these rooms ended up using air mattresses because they were so uncomfortable.

Both green couches on the lower level smelled like urine BAD.

1st Floor Master Bedroom closet smelled like cat/dog urine BAD.

The games/movies on the lower level living room were in shambles. There were movies missing from their cases & the games were in such disarray that they were all unplayable (fortunately, we had brought our own).

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear that we did not get the cabin clean enough for your stay. This cabin is very popular and is typically booked solid in the summer, so we only have a few hours between rentals to get things ready for the next group, however, most of the things you mentioned should have been taken care of. Unfortunately we do make mistakes, but we are always happy to come back and correct them immediately. In the future don't hesitate to give us a call/text and we can fix those items and let you get on with enjoying your vacation. We've never had complaints about the mattresses before. They only a couple of years old. They are soft-top mattresses and maybe that makes them feel worn out. I understand some people like a firmer mattress (I do). Sorry about the games and movies. Once again, it is hard to keep things like that organized. We really depend on the guests putting things like that back in good order. We have scheduled to clean all the couches and the master bedroom closet per your suggestion. Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoy the space, extra fridge, pantry, and the view.
