Bear Lake Escape
Garden City, Utah
Bear Lake Escape
Garden City, Utah, sits on the shores of Bear Lake, which is better known as the “Caribbean of the Rockies” for its unique and vivid turquoise-blue waters due to the presence of suspended limestone deposits. But there’s another sweet reason visitors get ‘berry’ excited about this northwestern town—raspberries. Thousands of people worldwide flock to Garden City to celebrate their harvest at its annual Raspberry Days Festival. The town is said to have the crème de la crème of raspberries, thanks to the elevation of Bear Lake Valley and the lake itself, providing an ideal climate to produce sweet berries.
Bear Lake Escape allows you to experience both of these phenomena with a peaceful getaway. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom luxury cabin lies in a quiet Garden City community looking out to the lake’s famous turquoise waters and offers easy access to the area’s best. Head to nearby boat rentals and enjoy countless hours on the water or simply layout on a lakefront beach, then refuel with some of the town’s world-famous raspberry shakes.
Enjoy all the modern comforts inside a stylish cabin-style living space. Enter a large gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and tons of counter space to prepare your favorite dishes. The open floor plan fuses with the dining room, where you can share home-cooked feasts throughout your stay. Fire up the BBQ on the covered deck or just sit back, relax, and enjoy fantastic lake and mountain views. If you’re here in the winter (or even just on a breezy night), feel free to cozy up by the fireplace. The living room is another spot you’ll love to gather in with a leather sofa and chairs and a smart TV to enjoy family favorites.
The master bedroom is the quintessential mountain home bedroom with log walls and a king bed clad in red and black plaid bedding. The master also features a smart TV so you can fall asleep to the sound of a classic movie or show. There are two full bathrooms with shower/tubs and three guest bedrooms. The “cowboy room” and the “ski room” both feature a queen bed, and the “fishing room” has a twin daybed, twin trundle bed, and a flatscreen TV. There are also three air mattresses available for additional sleeping space.
Bear Lake Escape offers several other luxuries, including a wrap-around porch, free WiFi, AC, fresh towels and linens, and off-street parking for up to eight cars (two in the garage and six in the driveway).
You can partake in an array of outdoor recreation from hiking, biking, ATV rides to waterskiing, jet skiing, and stand-up paddleboarding. Garden City is also a perfect winter retreat, with Beaver Mountain under a half-hour away. With the lakeshore, beaches, a golf course, and more just under two miles away, Bear Lake Escape offers an ideal destination for families and their pet or a group of outdoorsy friends.
