Fabulous Owners, Excellent Service, Wonderful Location! We Will Be Back!
TEN STARS!!!! Amazing value for the price! Came here with a group of 14 adults. Plenty of space for all of us to sleep comfortably, and enough dishes provided for that large of a group. Seating and common areas a bit snug for so many, but still worked. Hot tub seated 7 comfortably, an 8th could also fit if they didn't want to be fully submerged. Play-set equipment on-site was a fun treat. My one comment would be that if you are visiting in the winter, it may be a good idea to pack a few extra blankets, extras were provided, just not enough for every bed.
The real high point was the customer service provided by the owners. When deciding on a location, they were the most responsive to our inquiries. Then once there, we encountered an unavoidable issue due to sudden extreme weather conditions, and the owners really went above and beyond to resolve the situation and make sure our group was comfortable and happy.
We also had the opportunity to view the other 2 facilities on this property, "Papa Bear" and "Baby Bear" cabins, and were impressed by them as well. Papa Bear, in particular, made a huge impression on us with how luxurious the interior was. If you ever have opportunity to stay there, we would highly recommend you take advantage of it!
The property is located conveniently close to "downtown" Garden City, with a gas station, grocery store, and other services and businesses within a few blocks. This made it really easy to pop out and buy a few supplies that we forgot to bring with us. The Mama Bear and Papa Bear cabins themselves are situated far enough from the road to provide a bit of privacy, and the property has lots of trees to maintain the rural atmosphere.
We have been so impressed with the location and the service that we've received, we plan to make this our permanent venue for this annual event! Our entire group voted unanimously to make this our continuous location, rather than finding a new one every year. And if you've ever planned by committee, you know how hard it is to get 14 people to agree on anything!
Great place for our family reunion
We loved staying here, it was within walking distance of everything we wanted. The beach access was just ok, but mostly because the water was high. The kitchen was well stocked and there's plenty of nice shade in the front yard. It was a great place to gather our family.
The setting was lovely...
We enjoyed our stay at this property. It accommodated our large group comfortably. The outdoor space was wonderful for the little ones, safe and secure. All enjoyed the hot tub and the beds were very comfortable. Our hosts were super attentive to our needs and requests. We would recommend and would stay again.
We were a little disappointed in the size of the cabin, it seemed a lot bigger in pictures.
I also had to ask for my refundable deposit back a week after our stay. More of annoyances but we won’t be back.
Thanks for your feedback.
In response, the size of the cabin is one of the first things in our listing description. I'm sorry you felt it was smaller than you thought it would be.
The refundable damage deposit is automatically refunded by VRBO 7 days after check out. You requested it sooner than that; I manually initiated the refund as soon as you requested it.
I feel this two-star review is unwarranted: we have no control over your perceptions, we accommodated your request for an early deposit refund, and we made extra effort to return a pair of sunglasses left behind after your stay.
Beautiful property, helpful and friendly people, everything needed for a great vacation!
Perfect property for a family reunion
The location is great. We liked being close to town, the marina, the park, etc. The cabin was clean. The finishes are outdated, but it's comfortable and roomy. The family room is a little dark but very large. The outdoor space is great and the kids love the play equipment. Wifi is shared with Papa Bear cabin and it wasn't that great.
Our cabins are on the lake side of Bear Lake Blvd. It is a short 5-minute walk to the beach.
