Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, spotless and had everything we could have ever imagined to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The views were to die for and the serenity of the area was so nice! We especially enjoyed the fireplace on the deck, the well stocked kitchen and the steam shower. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to “get away from it all” in comfort. We enjoyed the lake activities- boating, jet skiing and paddle boarding. And our dog loved the grounds and all the new friends she made. The facilities were uncrowded and the staff was so free and helpful! We hope to come again some day.

Very Comfortable Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

House was exactly what we were looking for. Everything in home is top of the line, I missed the comfortable bed as soon as I got home. We frequently rent houses when we travel and I have to say that this was the best stocked home we have ever stayed at. We really did not need to bring much, except for our clothes. Owner was very informative and responded quickly to our needs. The only thing that was a bit inconvenient was the homes location to the pool. You do have to drive, that was a bit tricky with kids. Otherwise, everything was perfect and we would not hesitate to stay at this property again!!

Fantastic gem, hidden by a beautiful mountain lake

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was better than expected. The home is warm and gorgeous, the staff at the Lake Club are friendly and hospitable, and the surrounding area had so many great adventures and relaxing options.

It was a GREAT place to disconnect from the outside world and spend time connecting with my family.

This property has everything you need and then some!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express our delight in this home and the resort. The home had everything we needed! Our family rated this one of the best family vacations we have had next to Turks an Caicos, so that's pretty high. Bear Lake Resort itself is pretty awesome. We did something different every day and also spent some time at the pool. I cannot say enough good things about the staff at the Amenities Center. We definitely will be back.
