About Jamie Poulsen
We love spending time together as a family! We have two amazing kids and they LOVE to go to Bear Lake.
Jamie Poulsen purchased this House in 2017
Why Jamie Poulsen chose Snow Meadows
We love to travel, but one of our best family trips was to Garden City. Our children love to go to the lake and swim and collect shells. It is a great place to spend time together! The Paris Ice Caves are a favorite and Beaver Mountain for ski season! But the best is to go hang out on the beach in the summertime! North Beach is our favorite! There are so many trails for ATVs and snowmobiles!!!
What makes this House unique
We love this home! It is comfortable and gives everyone their own space, yet keeps us close together at the same time. The children love to play together out in the yard and we love to barbecue and roast marshmallows together. We love playing air hockey and ping pong out in the garage and it's always fun to shoots hoops on the driveway!

Nice house, not so nice A/C
The owner checked in with me to see what I might still want after renting and this is what I sent to her. Never heard back from her but thought I would post here for others to read. She did text me back with answers to questions but the house is really hot and the A/C just can't keep up or it's locked at 76 all the time.
The cleaning service clearly isn't vacuuming. At least they didn't before us. There was a band aid, Cheetto and water bottle cap on the carpet that were there when we arrived and the bathroom mats/rugs were very dirty. Kitchen counters weren't wiped off and the couches were covered with chip crumbs. On the plus side the bathrooms were clean other than the floors and rugs.
I couldn't tell if the thermostat has been locked at a certain temperature but we couldn't get the house cooled below 76 and that was a problem for us. I really wonder if the A/C unit simply isn't large enough to deal with the large square footage of the house. Thank you for having the large fans but we wouldn't stay there again based on the temperature in the summer. It's hard to open windows in the evening because of bugs (the property is next to a swampy bit of land) and smoke smells from both wild fires and camp fire so the A/C working well is pretty important. One other person commented on the heat/lack of good A/C on VRBO and I should have listened.
There wasn't any dish soap at all in the kitchen and the pantry is full of food that expired years ago (not that we would have eaten it anyway). The kitchen table is sticky to the touch and was not fun to even sit at. If it's not an option to refinish the top then a table cloth (even vinyl) would be excellent.
It was awesome to have the hot tub, my boys loved that. The access in and out of the garage was great!!
Thanks for all the great towels!! The master bedroom bed is like sleeping in two troughs, so that was hard especially for my husband but he's always having a hard time sleeping in a soft bed. The other king and the one queen bed are pretty hard. It really is a great property but wouldn't stay again unless the A/C was working to cool much much better and I would bring a table cloth and blow up mattresses to sleep on in the master bedroom.
It is a quiet neighborhood and close to Garden City.
Great place to stay, close to Garden City, Pickleville, Rendezvous Beach, or anything else on the West side of Bear Lake you are looking to do. The home has plenty of parking, and easy access. My adult children really liked the hot tub after a long day of wake boarding and surfing. The home has great accommodations, comfortable beds and anything you need to make your stay the best. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
House was fabulous!
The house was clean and updated. Perfect for our large group. We didn't utilize the air hockey or ping pong table in the garage. We didn't even watch TV. The hot tub was fabulous though. Only hard part was the house was so hot at night. Even the fans couldn't cool it down (nor did closing the blinds during the day). We tried leaving windows opened all day and night to no avail. Other than that, the house was perfectly stocked with the supplies we needed to enjoy our stay. Especially the washer and dryer (with laundry soap) to wash our towels each night! PERFECT location to the lake.
The house does have central air that works great! Next time you book a stay with us we will make sure you know how to use the thermostat. Thank you for the positive review!
First class and close to the marina
We have been coming to Bear Lake for the past 6 years. This year with a larger group we needed more space. This house was the perfect fit. Beds were comfortable, furnishings were nice and the kitchen was big enough to get our food prep done with being crowded. Space in the garage allowed us to put the boat inside overnight.
It's a great location, the house is comfortable and within a mile of ice cream! We plan to return next year!
Beautiful home - perfect for large families
Have rented this home two years in a row and have made such happy memories there. Large enough for 7 adults and 5 grandchildren - and all were comfortable. Large kitchen, jetted bath tubs, big beautiful master suite, hot tub on the back deck with spectacular views and these are just a few of the highlights. Very private and close to everything. Highly recommend this property. The owners are wonderful and want nothing more than to make your stay spectacular.
Super Great Place to Stay
My family stayed in this beautiful home for the weekend. The entire house is gorgeous, fully stocked with towels and beach toys, pots and pans and everything else you need to fix meals. There was even sugar for my coffee. The hot tub on the patio is fantastic with the sunset. Close to the beach. My grandson watched movies and played games that were there. The owners were very accommodating to anything and everything we needed, before, during and after our stay. They were quick to respond with answers to all my questions.
Great Place. We are already planning to go again.
