About Julie, Amy, Penny or Shaylynn

About: 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 at this Cabin:

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

We had a great stay! The dishwasher however, is on its last leg.

King summer family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and had a good location. We had 30 people and didn’t feel at all crowed. That being said it could use some updating on many of the extras like the swing set. ( very unsafe ) The kitchen could use some more cooking items. Little things like a measuring cups and spoons, a callender, knives that actually cut, a cookie sheet. Ect. Over all I would stay there again but bring a few more things from home to help in the kitchen. Also the video games don’t work at all.

Enjoyed our stay at Trailhead cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our family recently stayed in Bear Lake and rented the Trailhead Cabin. It was such a great place to stay! The cabin was clean and the property was well maintained. We enjoyed the kitchen and family seating areas and the extra deck out back was really nice. Our grandchildren had fun playing inside and outside the cabin. It was nice to have a map layout of the cabin ahead of time so we could plan for bedrooms and sleeping arrangements. It was helpful to have the extra fridge space downstairs and in the garage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a great review. I am sure others will be grateful as well. This is one of our favorite properties to manage. The owner spends a lot of time thinking of things to make it better. And I am glad the floor plans helped you. That is exactly why we provide them ahead of time. Pretty soon we'll have 360 virtual tour to help people "walk through the house" in advance to make bedroom arrangements. Come back and see us! If you've never tried Bear Lake in the winter, we highly recommend it. The snowmobiling, skiing, and ice fishing are excellent!
