We recently had the pleasure of staying at Bear Lake Heaven, and I cannot emphasize enough how amazing our experience was. From the moment we arrived, the host welcomed us with open arms and provided us with the utmost care and attention throughout our stay.
The house itself was absolutely stunning. It was impeccably maintained and fully stocked with everything we could ever need or want. From the modern showers to the luxurious sheets, every detail was carefully chosen to ensure a five-star experience. It truly felt like a home away from home.
One of the highlights of our stay was the spectacular property surrounding the house. With breathtaking views of the lake and mountains, we were constantly in awe of the natural beauty that surrounded us. The mornings were particularly magical, with a heavy mist settling over the mountains and gradually giving way to a stunning sunrise. It was a sight that left us feeling peaceful and rejuvenated every day of our stay.
In addition to the serene atmosphere, the house boasted an array of recreational activities. We had the pleasure of exploring the lake with the provided motor boat and canoes, soaking up the sun on the private beach, and embarking on invigorating hikes along the nearby trails. There was never a dull moment, and the opportunities for adventure were endless.
Overall, our family vacation at this lake house was nothing short of exceptional.We wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone seeking a serene and peaceful retreat. We thought it was so fabulous we already reserved a week for next year.
cannot emphasize enough how amazing our experience was
Last summer our trip to Greece was cancelled due to Covid and we scrambled to find another destination for family’s summer vacation. I discovered Bear Lake Heaven online and thought is sounded perfect but was concerned that there wouldn’t be enough there to entertain the kids for the entire stay. I couldn’t have been more wrong!!!
From the moment we arrived, we were blown away! The pictures online could never adequately capture just how stunning and immense this property is. It felt like we’d literally slipped into our own peace of heaven! The crystal-clear water and mountain peaks on all sides was just stunning.
The kids were up and out the door every morning – swimming, fishing, tubing, hiking, tennis, volleyball, jet skiing, boating, sunbathing, paddle boarding, kayaking, soccer, sandcastles, corn hole… there was literally never a dull moment!
I had looked into side excursions when planning the trip, but we never left the grounds the entire week! No one wanted to leave the sanctity of our lake front sanctuary. It felt as if we had a 5-star resort to ourselves… the house was stocked with everything and anything you could think of!
The incredible house manager, Amy, brought us everything we needed regarding food requests and additional supplies throughout our stay – and handled any other requests like arranging daily massages and a personal chef. The housekeeping staff kept everything spotless, and the maintenance crew kept the grounds meticulous.
I was pleasantly surprised when Keith, the owner, personally called us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed and to make sure we checked out the nearby waterfall. He sent over an additional tube for the kids, when I mentioned how much fun they were having on the water!
I truly can’t say enough about how special our week at Bear Lake Heaven was… literally one of the best vacations we’ve ever had! We can’t wait to go back!
literally one of the best vacations we’ve ever had
The word "nice" means different things to different people. When a person says they were at a "nice" hotel, they may mean a Comfort Inn, or a Westin, or a Ritz Carlton, or the St. Regis in Bora Bora. When the word "nice" is used to describe this house, it is in at least the Ritz Carlton sense, and if you are looking for a mountain lake vacation I'd say it is in the St. Regis at Bora Bora sense.
The interior is every bit as nice as it looks in the pictures. The things you can't see in the pictures are equally nice. The cookware is All Clad; the kitchen knives are high quality and sharp. The beds and bed linens are excellent. There is radiant heat in the bathrooms and the shower in the master bath is heavenly. Everything is very clean. The house is, certainly by the standards of vacation homes, very, very well stocked.
As good as the interior is, I would say that the exterior is better. The lake is gorgeous. The house comes with paddleboards, kayaks, etc. We were there between Xmas and New Years and, with wetsuits, were able to enjoy the lake. Outside of the lake, the landscaping here is amazing. It has a bunch of white sand beaches and private trails: several miles of nicely maintained and marked paths right on the property. It is like someone put a metropark into their (huge) backyard.
If you have people in your group who are less mobile but want to do a mountain lake vacation, this is a very good choice. The house is only about 10 feet above the lake level, and the lake is easy to get to (most other mountain lake homes in this area seem to have a long staircase to descend to get to the lake). The paths are well groomed and easy to get to. And if you have people in your party who are training for an ironman, the swimming in the lake is great, and there is no shortage of hilly runs.
Beyond the property - the property manager/concierge and owner were both a pleasure to interact with.
this is the best vacation home I have ever stayed in
you feel like you’re on your own personal island
Bear Lake Heaven is a once in a lifetime experience. It’s an incredible place to spend dedicated time with family and friends. We go each year with a group of 12 friends from high school, and we fit perfectly between the main house and the cabin. It’s incredibly relaxing, while at the same time never boring. You won’t find somewhere more beautiful go go in the summer.

I’m always so sad to leave Bear Lake. It is truly a magical place. From the views to the grounds you feel like you’re on your own personal island. The lake is spectacular, and warms to perfect temperature in the summer. This last trip I went on a sunset ski trip around the lake, which was absolute bliss!
I’d love to experience Bear Lake in the fall at some point. I can only imagine how beautiful it is. This has become an annual summer trip for me, and I can’t wait to return next year.
