About Sharon Smoot, Property Manager

My family loves water! My husband loves working on his course skiing, my kids tubing/ wakeboarding/ wakesurfing, and my idea of fun is time on my paddleboard. There is something special about lake time that creates memories and a bond that brings us together.

I'm excited to share our enthusiasm for the water and time with family and friends with you. We wanted to provide a place where you can create great lifetime memories and have a unique vacation with a private beach area and many activities to enjoy. Bear Hollow is beautiful and the scenery and wildlife truly are breathtaking. We also love the peace that comes from the Hollow located behind the lodge where there is an area to camp, enjoy a fire, or just sit on a bench by the riverbend and enjoy the feeling there.

My husband dreamed of building a waterski lake before we were married 14 years ago. This dream has become a wonderful reality and we feel blessed in the beauty that surrounds the lake. He has a true gift of building and creating and I hope you enjoy the result of his dream.

Sharon Smoot, Property Manager purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Sharon Smoot, Property Manager chose Utah

Formerly, we owned four other properties that I thought could become a lake. With each property, engineers pointed out certain flaws. With this location, the engineering process proved its perfection not just for one lake but for two! One lake is privately owned by an HOA and the other lake has the Bear Hollow Lakes Resort located on the waters edge. We were blessed to have all the sand and clay located on the property and did not have to bring any in except for the fine sand on the beaches. We have several water sources, but our favorite is the natural spring that feeds into the lake. We have stocked the lake with fish which we love to catch and release. The fish also do a wonderful job of keeping the water clean for us.

What makes this lodge unique

Beach and trail system. Twelve person hot tub on the river's bend. Hawaiin Theatre Room. Sandy beach with kayaks and paddleboards. Boathouse with sun deck and outdoor kitchen. A boat is parked at the deck to use at anytime and is charged by the hour. Outside boats are not allowed because our lake has a unique closed system and is fed by a natural spring.

This is a Water lovers Paradise !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just completed our 4th year at Bear Hollow Lakes Resort. I wish I could add another star to the 5 start rating! This private lake with two homes and on lake boat house is just incredible. After spending time at Lake Powell, Ut and Bear Lake Ut, fighting wind, crowds and hours traveling to and from, Bear Hollow Resort is THE place to truly relax and enjoy true paradise. Its just an hour from Salt Lake City.

You lack nothing when you arrive other than something to eat. No boat to trailer, no gear to bring unless you need your favorite ski or wake board. Sandy beach for the kids and a roped off swimming/play area.

Every year we come we never want to leave. The homes are decorated and furnished with the best of everything. Our family looks forward to coming every year. Its the only vacation we take all year were the parents can actually kick back and really enjoy the time away from home.

If you stay once you will come back. Sharron the property manager is personable and responsive.

If you and your family are looking for a WORLD CLASS water sports resort destination. Look no further. This is it!

This property was a perfect location for our family vacation, ages 5 to 71.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated 50 wonderful years of marriage with a family vacation to Bear Hollow Resort. Every member of our family really enjoyed our week long stay. We rented the power boat for great water sports activities and all of our children and grandchildren really had a blast. Walking or bicycling around the lake path was a daily activity as well. The volleyball net was up and used daily. And fishing was really good for our younger grandchildren who caught and released numerous bass, sunfish and catfish from the dock. The living conditions in the Lakeside Lodge and Beach House were just right for our family. The theater room was used every day. The indoor and outdoor kitchens made meal preparation extremely successful. The one thing we had not taken along were beach towels so we had to go into town and purchase some since the towels provided are for indoor bathing only. In summary I would rate this vacation location with the highest marks possible. Every one of our family wanted to know when we would be able to return. Thanks to Sharon and all the staff who helped to make this a tremendous experience.

Amazing resort with on location entertainment!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to have a reunion! Seriously there wasn't a need to go anywhere else! The lake was amazing and the kids didn't come in all day! There was boating, kyaking, a little beach area for babies with toys, an amazing dock, outdoor fire pit, outdoor kitchen, lounge, chairs, hot tub, massive grassy area, a gorgeous theater, the homes are beautiful and a walking path clear around the lake to walk or ride bikes. I could just go on and on! Our family has commented over and over how this was their favorite reunion ever! It is everything you would ever need and more! I can't say enough about it!

The Best Family Reunion Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had been gone for 18 months on an LDS mission and were looking for a place to hold our annual "Ohana"... which we have every year in July. We wanted this one to be special because we had not been all together for so long. This place was perfect! We had a wonderful time and the family wants to come back again and again. We are already looking into booking it for next year. Our 17 grandchildren LOVED the fishing, boating, paddle boards, basketball hoop, theatre room, volleyball net and the fire-pit where we roasted smores..... Even the roasting sticks were provided. Our six sons and families each had their own space and we even had our own suite, with the most comfortable bed you could ever ask for. The outdoor kitchen was wonderful... it has its own refrigerator, microwave, and fabulous grill that made grilling a breeze. We loved the theatre room in the Beach House where we had a "date-night" where all of the 6 sons and daughter-in-laws watched a movie, while Grandpa and Grandma watched the grandchildren in the Lake Side Lodge. Everything is top of the line, and no detail is left unattended. Sharon is always ready and willing to help with anything you need, and Craig was always so gracious to stop by and see how things were going.

This is a fabulous place for a family reunion. It has something to do for everyone, with all ages having a wonderful time. We can't wait to come back again!

Dream Family Reunion for Water Sports Lovers, and Book Worms Alike-- Everything for Every One

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a full week and it was awesome! We will come back again, there is a reason that this place has all 5 stars.We did not know what exactly to expect when we first booked so I will break this review down into 3 distinct parts because each deserves extra attention.

1)The Beach House & The Lake Side Lodge:

Both houses have been finished very high end. Each has an major indoor kitchen and another major outdoor kitchen. We used the Lodge kitchen as the home base because it had two pantry’s and two fridges. Before I arrived I thought that being split into two locations was a downer. I could have not been more wrong. We split our group into sleep styles with the 6 sets of couples that are night owls in the Beach House and their late night movies and games did not wake our other crowd. In addition to the movie theater and other pictures, I would like to specifically mention the Lake side lodge monster leather sectional. As a family reunion we meet each evening for a devotional style meeting and it was both comfortable and enjoyable. To have an inside area that was that large. There are also lots of little amenities that you don’t even think about like a rope swing, volley ball net, fire pit, balcony to do a kids egg drop contest etc. Perfect situation for the reunion.

2)The Water Activities:

As in the case with the accommodations the water sports are high end. As “boating people” we had high hopes. We opted for the boat rental and it was so worth it, the place was so well stocked. One thing that we discovered was the fun on the paddle boards and kayaks. Some of our crowd who did not want to get dragged behind the boat bare footing loved to paddle around. The 2015 Axis boat is very high end and has a monster surf wake. The boat seats 15. We never had that many people on the boat because there is the most awesome dock at the end of the lake. It has an outdoor comforter on it along with a bathroom and an outdoor shower that proved valuable cleaning up the kids after the sand castle building competition. I cite this a just another example of how it is clear that the owners have thought of everything.

3) The Owners/Managers:

Craig and Sharron are gems, and even let me come back days after the rental to retrieve a drone that crashed in the lake while video taping wake board tricks. Come for the Lake, come back for the great experience and interactions with the owners. You feel like house guests not a hotel patrons
