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 Garden City

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.

We had a great time together at this beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This house is big enough for activities on all three floors. There is a lot to do and plenty of bedrooms with comfortable beds for everyone. We had an amazingly fun week and loved the Bear Lake Red House.

Wonderful location for family reunion

The Big Red House was a perfect spot for our family reunion. We loved the 3 levels of gathering locations/family rooms. We highly recommend this rental!

An amazing property that exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

My first reaction to this beautiful house was how much larger the rooms were in person. Wow! This was the perfect house for our family reunion. We had 8 adults and 8 children for this retreat and there was so much more room than we really needed! But we loved it. My mother had just had a knee replacement so we were worried about her comfort. It ended up being ideal for her. With a room on the main level that had a spacious bathroom wide enough for her walker, and a large living and dining area off the kitchen, she was able to recline on the sectional during the day and not miss out on family time. We had children ages 1-17 and there was something for all ages to entertain them. The basement was the kids' favorite place with an Xbox 360 Kinect and plenty of games to choose from. They also loved the ping pong table and the indoor basketball hoop. The top floor TV room (huge!) ended up being a quiet space for family members who needed to get a little work done throughout the trip. The free wi-fi was a huge plus. And the kitchen had everything we could ever need and more! It even had a griddle, George Foreman grill, rice cooker, waffle makers, etc. The washer/dryer on every floor made it so convenient for each family to wash beach towels and swimsuits. Cariane was extremely helpful answering all of our questions before we arrived, and we had no problems during our stay. We enjoyed the fire pit outside and had smores one night using the roasting sticks that were in the garage. There were also 4 cruising bikes in the garage that we enjoyed taking out for a cruise around the area. There were card games and board games in the cupboards to play, and every night we enjoyed watching a DVD in the family room with the older kids when the little ones had gone to bed. It was such a dreamy vacation spot that we can't wait to come back. I'm trying to talk my husband's family into renting this house for their reunion next summer!

Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

We found the accommodations new, well maintained and roomy. The basement is well

designed for multiple amusements including pingpong, games, and comfortable TV watching.

We particularly enjoyed the location, close to marinas providing lake recreational

rentals and excellent beach sites.

Beautifully built home

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at the Bear Lake Red House. The house is very nice with fun things to do at the home and around the area. Ping Pong table, basketball shoot, TVs for games and movies were really nice. We played games in the backyard. Very nice furnishings in the home and the master bedroom was excellent. We had plenty of room for 14. The house can easily accommodate 18. Separate kitchen in the basement is nice if you have two families needing that space. There is an exit from the kitchen area in the basement to the outside of the house. We all ate together on the main floor as the dining table was good-sized.The house was clean and well-maintained, and the owner was very easy to work with. There were some dead bugs in the bedroom in the basement. It looked as though the property had recently been sprayed for bugs. It was a fun trip.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a party with 4 families and this house was perfect!! The house was clean and beautiful. The two kitchens came in handy. We loved the proximity to everything in bear lake. There were plenty of beds for everyone to feel comfortable. The beds themselves were very comfortable. We would highly recommend staying in this house. We will be back to stay here!!
