About the property

Log Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

**New Bookings now through August 21, 2018** We pay your sales tax!!

The Mama Bear Cabin is a beautiful stacked-log cabin. It is approximately 2,400 square feet and is two levels. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It is a 5-minute walk to the lake or to local restaurants.

The main floor has a great room with large TV and DVD player, well-equipped kitchen, dining area, laundry room, bathroom with a shower, and kids bunk room (bedroom #4).

The upstairs has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own private bathroom, and the other two bedrooms share a bathroom.

The entire house is available for renter use except the garage.

Our site manager is available to answer questions during check-in and lives close by. You can also contact me if you have any questions.

We are located on the west side of Bear Lake (on the lake side). You can see the lake from the upstairs bedrooms. You can walk to the lake (about a 5-minute walk).

There is a city park about 2 blocks south of the cabin. It has a kids playground, a large covered pavilion and a large grassy field. To the east of the city park is a boardwalk that goes through some wetlands to the lake.

There are two restaurants next door: Bear Trapper Steak house and Bear Lake Pizza. The Bear Trapper steak house caters.

For larger groups, see our other listings. The Baby Bear Cabin sleeps up to 8. The Papa Bear Family Reunion Lodge can handle groups up to 50. Or, for *really* large groups, you can rent all three cabins as they are all adjacent to each other on 1.25 acres of land.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to walk down to Bear Lake. It's a short 5-10 minute walk. No big roads to cross, just walk across the property and then down 150 south.

Not great.

  • 2 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

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.

Fun for 3 families

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! We had 3 families for our stay and it was comfortable and fit us all. They were great to work with us on what we needed and no one had any complaints. We would definitely stay again.

Loved the property! It was close easy to find and had a lovely large yard.

  • 4 of 5

3-1/2 stars out of five. We loved the hot tub (and thanks for supplying towels), the large gathering room, and we (12 of us) all fit around the dining table! The kitchen was stocked well enough with dishes, pots, pans and cutlery, and we were glad to use the outdoor barbecue. The bathrooms were adequate for our group as well. We also really enjoyed the outdoor chairs to gather and chat on the lawn. And we were glad to have a wagon for the kids!

The only downside was the bed situation. The house sleeps 16 but most of those are bunks which wasn't helpful to couples which was most of our family. Only two of the four couples were able to sleep together. Also, we found mouse droppings in the master bedroom closet upstairs....

But overall, we enjoyed the Mama Bear. Thanks!

(Thank you for a speedy return of our damage deposit as well.)

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. While we have had the floor plans and bed configurations posted from the beginning so there would be no surprises, we recently have had guests complain about the number of bunks. We have added another king bed. Sorry we weren't able to move it in before your stay! :)
