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!

Happy Grandmother

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

I echo all of the positive comments written in other reviews. The home worked great for us. We stayed with our adult children and spouses and a lot of young grandchildren. We all loved it. There was a place for everyone. Very comfortable and pleasant. Sue is meticulous in making sure everything is as it should be. She works hard to keep things in order and functioning so that each visitor is able to enjoy all of the amenities of the home on an ongoing basis. Thank you for a great stay!

Wonderful multifamily reunion !

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Aspen Lodge....and what a wonderful week it was! The pictures of the home did not do it justice. It is a large spacious home centrally located to all venues.There are two large living areas and a well appointed kitchen...and lovely separate dining room that has seating for 12.The hot tube for 8 was large and relaxing and in a separate spa room.There is a lovely patio with a large gas grill and four picnic tables. The outside area was perfect for relaxing ; and with a large back yard. The kids had fun playing volleyball(net provided) and "night games" with no bugs.( mosquito abatement working)The bedrooms were very well appointed and beds delightfully comfortable.(Upstairs "kids room" with many queen beds tables etc. was a real plus.)Steve and Sue were so nice to work with. Sue was so informative and helpful with tips on what to do and discounts on many rentals. Steve was attentive to all our needs and was "johnny on the spot" when we called him.We will be back next year and would highly recommend this lovely lodge to everyone!

Love this home!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Wonderful Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were married in Garden City and chose to have both of our families stay at Aspen Lodge for the wedding weekend. The first thing we noticed were that the pictures on the website do not do it justice - it's lovely and spacious yet still cozy! Children AND adults had a great time in the upstairs game room, and in the grassy yard area. Everyone made themselves at home, as there are so many ammenities available (hot tub, coffee maker, and bbq were put to good use!) I recommend this vacation rental for the affordable cost, great location, gorgeous master bedroom/bath, spacious living areas, but most of all because the owners are so wonderful, helpful, and attentive.

Wonderful family reunion at Aspen Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our family (22 people -age 9 months-70) had a wonderful time at Aspen Lodge. Booking and communicating with the owners was very easy...they were great to work with. Everyone was astounded by the FANTASTIC upstairs game/movie room which included 7 queen beds...Fooseball and air hockey were also popular...and the ping pong table got a lot of use(you can buy new balls at the local Ace Hardware)...downstairs were four lovely bedrooms, plenty of space for eating, cooking, gathering and an indoor hot tub! We spent a day with a rented boat/jetskis at the Lake and another at the Minnetonka caves...some of our group went to Bloomington lake...and of course we had raspberry shakes...this was our first time at Bear Lake and everyone would be happy to return to this lovely home. Thanks, Sue and Steve
