About Cathy Rixey
I am a banker in Wenatchee, WA. Married 35 years to my hubby and we have two children (daughter and son) and two grandchildren (Liam 2 1/2 and Liv 1, who we love more than anything!!). Our favorite travel destinations are anywhere warm, usually on a beach or by a pool, probably Hawaii or any other tropical destination. We love to go on cruises too. We've taken 3 trips to Sandal's with our friends: St. Lucia, Montego Bay Jamaica, and most recently Grenada and South Africa. We also love to go to movies too when we are home or just hang out with friends and family. We decided to share our property in St. Charles with guests beginning in June 2016. We initially purchased the lot in 2006 with our daughter and son-in-law. They decided to build the house there in 2010 upon returning to the US from a 3 year stay in Brisbane, Australia. From there, we partnered with them to get the house built first in 2010 and the garage was completed in Summer of 2012. They built their lives in Bear Lake for the next 5 years working at Beaver Mountain Ski Resort, Minnetonka Caves, Zions Bank (in Montpellier) and the City of Paris (maintenance). They loved living in this community, made many strong friendships, and even had their first child there at Bear Lake Memorial Hospital. But, after 5 years, and being pregnant with baby #2 (our granddaughter, Liv), they decided to move to Washington to be close to us in the Summer of 2015. We have kept the home as our second home and decided to share it with other vacationers on occasion who love the quaintness of St. Charles and the unique North Beach area where you can walk out into the lake for a mile.
Cathy Rixey purchased this Guest House in 2006
Why Cathy Rixey chose St. Charles
You will love staying here to get away from it all but be close to the lake, hiking, caves, and enjoy the county life of St. Charles.
What makes this Guest House unique
The thing we like best is the location of this property and our fabulous neighbors. It's very private yet right near all amenities including: 5 minutes from North Beach and hot springs, Minnetonka Caves, hiking trails, Garden City 20 minutes away.

Cute, quiet, & comfortable
This place was amazing! It is located right close to everything you'd want to do at Bear Lake and its's very clean and roomy. For being just off the main road it was quiet and relaxing. The unit is newer and was comfortable even without AC. We will definitely be back again.
Fantastic!!! So happy you enjoyed your stay.
Well cared for
Very nice 2 bedroom guest house. It was clean with high ceilings and easy in and out with our boat. Owners were very nice. Thank you this was perfect for our family of 5. Very Convenient to North Beach! Thanks
Great place! Well kept and clean. Perfect for my husband, myself and our son. Could’ve slept more if
Would highly recommmed to others! Great location. Close to Bear Lake North Beach and close enough to restaraunts but far enough from town to have some peace.
We really enjoyed our stay in this guest house!
This was a great property. It may appear small, but it is actually very spacious! We loved it. It is minutes from the North Shore too! The kitchen is fully loaded with everything you’ll need to cook! It was extremely clean! The beds were perfect as well. So soft and comfy. We loved being able to wash our uniforms up in the washer and dryer. There were plenary of games and movies to watch. AND There is WiFi!! Whoo hooo! It really was a great find for us. Thanks for such a great stay, we would stay again!!
Great location and amenities!
Host was super nice. Property was better than expected! Thanks again!
Thanks for staying with us. I'm so happy you enjoyed it and found the location wonderful! We love it too.
Our home is located very near the North Beach which is super popular because it's very large, has a long shallow area where you can walk out, a boat launch, picnic tables and lots and lots of space. We are near the Bear Cave where you can get a hamburger, onion rings and raspberry shake or the Jailhouse shops that have food items, rafts etc. Also on the North Beach there is a hot springs area and place to rent watercraft. We are also very near Minnetonka Caves, Bloomington Lake, and the town of Paris. It's 17 miles from Montpellier where there are banks and shopping and a new Butch Cassidy Museum. Also a short drive to Garden City, 15 miles and along the way, you can golf at Bear Lake West or eat a nice breakfast, lunch or dinner at Cooper's Sports Bar.
