About Jamie Poulsen

We love spending time together as a family! We have two amazing kids and they LOVE to go to Bear Lake.

Jamie Poulsen purchased this house in 2017

Why Jamie Poulsen chose Utah

We love to travel, but one of our best family trips was to Garden City. Our children love to go to the lake and swim and collect shells. It is a great place to spend time together! The Paris Ice Caves are a favorite and Beaver Mountain for ski season! But the best is to go hang out on the beach in the summertime! North Beach is our favorite! There are so many trails for ATVs and snowmobiles!!!

What makes this house unique

We love this home! It is comfortable and gives everyone their own space, yet keeps us close together at the same time. The children love to play together out in the yard and we love to barbecue and roast marshmallows together. We love playing air hockey and ping pong out in the garage and it's always fun to shoots hoops on the driveway!

This is our second time at this rental and loved every min even more than the last time! Super clean home with everything you need to feel at home and walking distance to the gorgeous lake. Local eateries are a less then 5 min drive. We really enjoyed hot tubbing after a long day of water sports. Owners were so accommodating to our needs...cant say enough nice things about this place and will def be coming back!!!

Beautiful home - perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

Have rented this home two years in a row and have made such happy memories there. Large enough for 7 adults and 5 grandchildren - and all were comfortable. Large kitchen, jetted bath tubs, big beautiful master suite, hot tub on the back deck with spectacular views and these are just a few of the highlights. Very private and close to everything. Highly recommend this property. The owners are wonderful and want nothing more than to make your stay spectacular.

Super Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautiful home for the weekend. The entire house is gorgeous, fully stocked with towels and beach toys, pots and pans and everything else you need to fix meals. There was even sugar for my coffee. The hot tub on the patio is fantastic with the sunset. Close to the beach. My grandson watched movies and played games that were there. The owners were very accommodating to anything and everything we needed, before, during and after our stay. They were quick to respond with answers to all my questions.

Great Place. We are already planning to go again.

Too many issues/problems

  • 2 of 5

We were extremely disappointed in this cabin. First off, all the bedrooms were upstairs and the only place to hang out was on the main level. There was no privacy, or separate place for the kids or adults to go, like a basement or separate living/family room. Everyone was walking all over each other. Second, the house was extremely hot. Two of the bedrooms had separate portable A/C units in it but it didn't help and the others suffered. Everyone was miserable and couldn't sleep. It also didn't help that the smoke detectors kept going off at 3:00 a.m. not just a random beep like it needed batteries changed, but the full blown blaring get out of the house there is a fire going off. Third, anytime someone used the electrical outlet in the queen bedroom, the power would go out upstairs and we were constantly going outside to flip the breaker. Fourth, the water pressure in the house was terrible, making for poor showers and the toilet to overflow in one of the upstairs bathrooms. We immediately contacted the owner and they chose to not come assess or fix the situation . No one dared use the bathroom after that, so we were down a facility the rest of the trip. Fifth, the toilet paper was not stocked and we had to go buy our own. Sixth, Multiple light bulbs were burned out and we had to take some from bedrooms and strategically put them in the bathroom and master bedroom to make sure everyone had at least some. Also, they say there are trails for snowmobiling and ATV but be warned - you cannot ride your toys from their property, their neighborhood covenants prohibit this, so you have to load up your ATV's and drive to trail heads (defeating the purpose of choosing this property). Also, they didn't even offer basic cable. They did have a DVD player, but if your going to bother getting a TV, at least offer basic cable. There are far too many other cabins to chose from in Bear Lake, than to have to deal with the inconveniences of this cabin. We have been renting cabins for over 20 years and have never had issues such as these. I guess If your a couple with no expectations than just a simple getaway to play cards in and hang out, then this is your place. If your a multi- family or larger group, I would not recommend this property. The layout of the house was just not well thought out and there is something wrong with their plumbing system.

Owner's Response: In four years of renting this is our first and only negative review. We rent our house every single day of the summer and have no issues with our plumbing. Unfortunately, these people overflowed the toilet and caused substantial damage to our home. We called them immediately upon receiving the message at midnight that they had overflowed the toilet and followed up with them twice during their stay to make sure that everything was okay. We were told that the plumber was not needed and things were fine. The renter sent me a text to say they were using the toilet in that bathroom and everything was fine. Upon their checkout we realized substantial damage had been caused and asked them to pay for it with their deposit. We were threatened that if we did not return their deposit they would leave a bad review. Very unfortunate that this happened.

Beautiful house with great hot tub and location!

  • 5 of 5

The master bed is divine! My husband and I keep talking about buying the same mattress because we slept so well! We loved having so many bathrooms and bedrooms that folks could spread out. We used the fire pit in the back yard and relaxed in the hot tub. We have 8 adults and it was a perfect weekend! The place was great for walking to the water or watching movies. We will go back!
