Other Amenities

  • The Aspen Lodge is owner managed. We take pride in offering our guests a clean, well-maintained, and comfortable location for our guests. Please note: due to a number of factors we unfortunately will be unable to offer the spa for the 2016 season. It's very important to us that we offer all our guests excellent accommodations. Factors affecting the discontinuance of the spa include, but are not limited to, too much sand and silt entering the filtration and pumps during use, compounded by the high cost of water in Garden City - we feel it necessary to make this difficult decision. Please feel free to send your inquiry; we are happy to answer your questions. Thank you for considering the Aspen Lodge for your visit to Bear Lake, Utah. We look forward to your stay!...moreless
