Amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our October wedding.The owners are so sweet and so accommodating! You couldn't ask for easier people to work with! It is a wonderful property for a larger group! Especially one with kids. It was a beautiful venue for our rustic wedding. I would absolutely stay again!

Wonderful Wedding

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location for our daughter's wedding. The cabin provided a comfortable and convenient location for family and friends to celebrate with us. This cabin has everything you need for a carefree and relaxing vacation which we were able to take advantage of after the wedding. The fall colors and fresh mountain air added to the great experience our family had at BearTrap lodge. Happy Memories!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin was perfect for our family vacation. It was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our family had plenty of room to relax and play. The owners were only a phone call away to answer our questions. They snow plowed the driveway as needed and made sure we arrived to a nice warm cabin. Our family is looking forward to another stay at the Beartrap lodge!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely amazing. It gives the true rustic feel you would expect from a mountain get away. We used this house for our team potluck and it was the perfect setup. It has two very large rooms that were perfect for everyone to hang out in. The house was very well kept and everything was prepared for our arrival. We would absolutely use this home in the future and in fact, many of the people that attended said they can't wait to come back on their own! Thanks to the owners!!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for our out of town family as we prepared for the wedding of our daughter. It was wonderful in everyway. Lots of room for everyone. A secluded upstairs for the bride and her wedding party. A great place out side to have everyone gather the night before the ceremony. We even made the wedding cupcakes in the downstairs kitchen. The surroundings are beautiful with wonderful views and nice hikes. I would recommend this space for any family gathering. All the amenities were in great shaped and worked fine. We now have a lifetime memory for the whole family as we celebrated this once in a lifetime event.

Perfect visit

  • 5 of 5

Bear trap Lodge could not have been more perfect! It is everything that is advertised and more. I visited in March with a total of 18 people and we had a great time. Right off the highway but a very secluded feel. Being very close to both Solitude and Brighton ski resorts was very convenient for us as we had several child skiers. Skiing was great by the way! The owners of this property were a pleasure to deal with. Very good communication throughout the entire rental process. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was the best it could be. They continued this even after the trip by shipping something that was left back to us. Amazing! I have stayed in ski towns in Colorado, Montana, New Mexico and Utah and this property and the service the owners provided is the best I have experienced. I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone! Already have my eye on a week next year!
