Perfect holiday cottage: very cozy, clean, and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Bear Aire Cottage and plan to make a return trip in the warmer seasons too. This space was perfect for our small group of 4 people and 2 dogs. Victoria was a great host. She communicated well and made sure we had what we needed during our stay. The kitchen is well stocked, there is laundry available (for longer stays), and the cottage's layout is very cozy and spacious. The bedrooms are a great size and the bathrooms are very nice. The entire Cottage was very clean! The kitchen is narrow but has a surprising amount of storage and counter space. The kitchen opens up nicely to the living room and dining room areas to make it feel connected and spacious. The space is perfect for entertaining a small group for a few days and still allows for folks to have some alone time in the bedrooms or in front of the fire on the couch. The front porch is perfect for dogs - Victoria has even added a small lattice fence at the bottom for smaller dogs. The surrounding area is gorgeous. There is a greenway nearby and the Cottage is very close to downtown. I could go on about how much we loved this space. Thank you for providing this lovely home for our holiday celebrations!

Comfy cottage near Mirror Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Victoria and Mikes cottage near Highlands. Made a few meals in the cozy kitchen and grilled outside on the deck. Bed was super comfortable and the gas fireplace was convenient and warm after a long days hike. Our dog Truman made himself at home and we always enjoy all the dog friendly touches at the house. Took the new greenway trail into town and ended up at the dog park after walking through some gorgeous trails. Always love coming to Highlands and staying in Bear Aire properties!

A Place I Would Like to Buy!

  • 5 of 5

When you rent a property, you have certain expectations that you hope will be met, when I walked into Bear Air, all of my were exceeded. My husband, myself, and 2 golden retrievers immediately fell in love. It is a cabin that has been modernized to meet all your needs. The rooms, closets, and bathrooms are large, new, and well appointed. It is clean, lovely, homey and many other positive adjectives . The area was made for dog walking and all the neighbors were wonderful. We stayed 2 months and I did not want leave. We have already booked for next year. If you want a true cabin experience, but 5 star, this is it!
