Nice Cabin on a Nice Lake

A nice, cozy, clean cabin. Bear Lake is a great place for families with the warm water and sandy bottom. Cabin had great space to sleep everyone. Very clean and comfortable. With that many people and only one shower it took some coordination but we made it work. Definitely would rent again!

A great place to vacation

We had a wonderful vacation. This cottage is very close to the lake, and so we could sit on the patio , drink our coffee and love the view. The lake had a sandy bottom, and it was fun to swim in the lake. This cottage is very well organized like a five star hotel.
