                                                            Excellent all around! Great house and great owner!


                                                            Karen R.

                                                            Being that we actually live close by and this property was used basically for overflow to sleep and eat breakfast, the tenants were not there very much.

                                                            Couple of suggestions - the mattresses need replacing - it was reported that the springs can be felt. Also, there are no "hooks" or bars in which to hang clothing, etc. in the bathroom.

                                                            Otherwise, the rental property was very spacious and the directions and communication with owner was wonderful!

                                                            Clean!! Cozy!! Comfortable!!

                                                            Matthew P.

                                                            Everything we needed fo a great snowmobile trip. House had lots of space and the location was a couple of blocks from the snowmobile trail. Steve was very helpful and definitely would recommend the house to anyone. Would like to see it in the summer. The lake was beautiful frozen but i bet it’s better with a boat and fishing pole

                                                            Immaculate, quiet, and relaxing!

                                                            Daniel N.Mason

                                                            This is our 3rd stay at Little Bear Lake House. Everything was perfect. The house was super clean as always, equipped with everything we needed, and the lake as beautiful and as quiet as always. Cannot say enough about the owner Steve and his LBLH!

                                                            Thanks for the great review. We are so glad that you enjoy your stay each and every time.

                                                            We enjoyed the house a lot! It is very cozy and vlose to so many cities for you to visit,

                                                            cristina p.

                                                            It is a very nice place to stay and enjoy the view. the house looks very modern and clean. Everything around the house works perfectly. There are a lot if kitchen utensils to use and everything you might need. The place is pet friendly very spacious.

                                                            The home was nice and clean with notty pine surrounding you to give you that up north feeling!

                                                            Jim L.

                                                            When I first contacted Steve about the property I told him that my daughter's family would be joining us and they had three children under 5. I asked about the beach - if it was sandy or weedy. He said the water level was high and there wasn't as much beach as in the pictures. Unfortunately there was NO beach and the 61 steps down to the dock were a concern for the children. The water was up to the seawall. We ended up packing everybody up and going to the public beach in Lewiston on beach days. The picture of the beach is very misleading.

                                                            Also as mentioned in other reviews, the King and Queen beds were not comfortable at all. There were a lot of nice amenities like a gas stove, dishwasher, flat screen TV , nice view of the lake from the deck, modern bathrooms, nice decorations. Unfortunately, with the three little children, this cottage was not a good choice.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            I'm truly sorry that the property did not meet your needs. We had no intentions of misleading you. Unfortunately, lake levels are extremely high this year, and we have lost our beach. The water appears to be receding, and we are hopeful that our beach will return next season.
