Originally built in the spring of 2002 as a bed and breakfast Inn, our 11,500 square foot, family home (Inn), has now became our four star vacation home. This Victorianesque home is the ultimate destination for a fabulous family reunion, family, group ski or snowmobile escape, or business retreat. Located at one of the most beautiful year round vacation spots in the world, beautiful Bear Lake is only minutes from the front door, snowmobile and ATV from the parking area and skiing 15 minutes away at Beaver Mountain or golf at two course within a ten minute drive.

Our new home will give you an experience that will exceed all of your expectations. From the 17 unique bedrooms each with its own bath with jetted tub, one with 4 bunks for the kids and fabulous unique furnishings in all, two large gathering/meeting areas, you will not find a better setting for your vacation experience. Do not forget the private heated pool and hot tub. New 1300 square foot grass playing field and park for football, soccer and games. You will not find a better place that you can have the experience to gather as a group and still have plenty of space to have privacy and enjoy the experience.

Plenty of parking for the largest group and still have space for the boats, snowmobiles or other recreational necessities.

About Julie, Amy, Penny or Shaylynn

About Me: My wife and I moved to Bear Lake in 2007 and started Bear Lake Cabin Rentals. 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 of the Area:

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Loved the kitchen remodel and bench seating. Great place for a family gathering.

9 years at Inn at the Lake

  • 3 of 5

We have been staying there for 9 years. The location is great. Close to shops, restaurants and boating. At first each year we arrived to see new improvements that made it so much better. But the last 2 years it seems that things are not being taken care of. The pool cover which has been on its last leg for years was broken. Luckily we didn’t have any tiny children. The hot tub is always dirty. The concrete that goes down to the pool from the house is so damaged it is really a hazard. Many of the light bulbs were out. Some of the window air conditioners don’t work. Some of the bathrooms need attention. The large room downstairs has 2 nice hide a beds that have been broken for 3 years so you can’t use them and we need them for sleeping. The beautiful bunk room down stairs has 2 queen beds that are very comfortable but the 5 other bunk beds have the worst mattresses, so that even our kids don’t want to sleep in them. These beds are counted in the number of sleeping places which is 65, but counting beds and hide a beds there are really only 45. The final straw was that we were told next year the rates may be going up as much as 500.00 per day. That is definitely out of our price range. The people who manage this property are wonderful and so helpful. They come immediately when there is a problem but they will not be managing it any more.

It’s really sad for us because we have a family of 50 people that look forward to staying there a week every year. It has become a part of our family traditions .

We have booked a nice new property for next year that is a LOT less expensive but it doesn’t have as many bedrooms and bathrooms I have tried to be exact with my complaints hoping that perhaps they will be fixed and that we can stay another year.

Fantastic for families...3rd yr in a row!

  • 5 of 5

This has been a perfect place for our family to hold family reunions the past three years! We love the pool and jacuzzi, the grassy play area, the large mingling area and the spacious kitchen and pantry. We had a family dance on the parking lot.

The property is very well maintained. The pool guy came by every day to check things. Great ice machine! We are coming again for our next reunion!

We enjoyed hiking, visiting the Minnetonka caves, swimming in the lake, watching Juanito Bandito (so funny) and getting lots and lots of shakes! But, most of all we just loved hanging out at the house! It's so fun to be able to do so many activities right there, where babies can nap and little ones can snack and everyone can choose to be outside or inside, but still be around and part of things. No one gets left out. We love it here!

Love this property!

  • 5 of 5

We love this property! We have now stayed three times, and have booked it for a fourth! The house is lovely, the kitchen is wonderful, and having a pool right there is awesome! We especially love that everyone has a key to their own private room, and each room has its own bathroom!

WOW! What an INN this is!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 45 had never been to Bear Lake. We were searching for a home that would fit our family in a place we wanted to explore. Inn at the Lake was over the top, perfect for our family. Everything mentioned online was completely correct. Fully stocked kitchen, two fridges, large pantry, plenty of cupboards for storage. Great dining area with long tables plus a fun breakfast nook that seated 14 easily.

The bedrooms with private bathrooms was a huge selling point for our family. The large area for gathering together as a family with couches, tv, fireplace, and large windows to view the fenced in hot tub and pool area was remarkable.

Playground for kids, volleyball net, plenty of parking and our family favorite, basketball hoop with plenty of space to play.

Parking was a breeze with plenty of spaces including room for a boat. Everything was as advertised and stated online. The house was very clean when we walked in. Everything was move in ready so we could make the most of our time with our family from three states.

We will be recommending this home to others and we plan to rent this home again for ourselves.

We had an outstanding time at the Inn

  • 5 of 5

We found everything in order. The kitchen, the bathrooms, the bedrooms and the general areas were all clean and tidy. We were impressed that the bathrooms were stocked with top brand name soaps and facial tissue and toilet tissue. There was no attempt to save money by using unknown brands that are sometimes of very poor quality. The television sets worked in the rooms and the swimming pool and hot tub were clean and well maintained. Besides the pool and hot tub, the play area with swings and other playthings was a huge success with our greatgrandchildren and their parents. They also enjoyed the large grass covered field adjacent to the play area. This is our third stay at the Inn and we plan on coming back. We would recommend the Inn to everyone who wants an exceptional vacation getaway. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay.

Fantastic for large family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Property matched description. Wonderful amenities. Close to lake, shopping, restaurants, entertainment. Perfect for our family reunion. We have used the same propert 3 years in a row and are coming back again in 2020. Property is well maintained and owner/manager are very responsive to needs and requests. We enjoyed the Pickleville Playhouse, Merlin’s (and the famous rasberry shakes), the go-carts, and the lake. Highly recommended. Highlights for us are the swimming pool/spa, large sports field/playground, and spacious kitchen/dining room/gathering room for family time.
