About Cariane Bowles

The Red House is owned by three friends/business partners. They all live in the Ogden Utah area and work together there. And because they have a lot on their respective plates one of the owner's wife is running the VRBO site. My name is Cariane!

Cariane Bowles purchased this house in 2013

Why Cariane Bowles chose Sweetwater

Bear Lake has always been a favourite vacation spot for all of us. It is also very close to Ogden for a quick weekend retreat. We all like to be outdoors and Bear Lake is a unique area where a variety of things are offered. And the Red House is the perfect home base.

Great vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This home is both spacious and comfortable. The owner was very accommodating to allow us an early check in. It's a perfect location for accessing the lake without having to drive a long distance and the ample parking next to the home could not be better or more convenient. Although the property is advertised as having two ovens, we found the oven in the basement is not hooked up.

This is a huge, comfortable home in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved having space to spread out at our family reunion. There is a large comfortable living area on each of the 3 levels. There are activities like video games, pingpong, and shuffleboard to play (though the pictures also showed a basketball hoop game that was not present which upset my nephew who had his heart set on playing it). We were a few little issues with A/C upstairs not working very well and downstairs being an icebox and a stove not being hooked up downstairs which we hoped to use, but overall we loved the Big Red House.

A beautiful, cozy home

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home with room for everyone. Even in the winter, there are things to do and lots of cozy couches to visit or watch TV. We've stayed here every year for several years and it seems like home to us.

Fine Place for a Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

The Red House provides comfort and reasonable support for an extended family reunion. We've gathered there for the past 3 summers with 30+ adults and children participating each time. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the air conditioning unit is functional and keeps the temperature cool, the place is clean and tidy upon arrival, and the house is roomy and spacious. Its quiet and peaceful (a plus) but several miles distance from Bear Lake beaches for those who enjoy the water. After no building activity in the past, during summer 2017 there was considerable construction of roads and sidewalks in the immediate area. Presumably in the future there will be way more adjacent houses and activity than has been the case in the past. Whether this will enhance or detract remains to be seen. Finally, Carianne, the property manager, has been helpful and very reasonable to work with.
