Wonderful family vacation!! Nice home with lots of space and bedrooms for all of us. Great check in process and communication. House was pretty warm. Wished AC cooled main floor and upstairs better. Overall was great!
Beautiful views in all the house of Bear Lake. Great accommodations with lots of entertainment for the whole family. Plenty of of exciting places to visit. Our hosts took very good care of anything we needed. We are already planning to go next year. Thanks to the hosts for all their help !
We had such a great girls weekend. The home is beautiful and we comfortably all fit. We spent a lot of time on the deck with the beautiful view. At night the gas fire pit was great. The pool was open and the weather perfect. We did take advantage of the private beach…but the geese had beat us there and there was goose poo everywhere!! We just manuvered around it as best we could…can’t fight Mother Nature. The house was well stocked and air conditioning worked perfect! I would definitely recommend!! In a word it was WONDERFUL!
The communication from the owners was wonderful. The house was very clean and had all the amenities of home. The location was great also.
Excellent fit for our family of 27! The owners were very responsive and got us the information we needed. We appreciated the amenities in the garage, kitchen, size of the bedrooms and functionality of the house. We did come earlier in the season so we couldn’t swim in the pool at the club house. It opens memorial day. The lake water was cold but we still enjoyed it all. The hot tub and beach access was a really nice plus. We highly recommend it to all!
We had a fabulous experience staying here! The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook. It was very clean and had plenty of beds to sleep our party of 22. The property manager was amazing to deal with. Responded very quickly to my questions. Would highly recommend this home to anyone staying in Bear Lake!
Loved the house and it is set up well. My only suggestion would be to lose the second dining room table and put in a couch and chairs to be able to relax on the main floor.
We had an excellent stay! This house was equipped with anything and everything you could need, the space is laid out SO well for a large group and the view was gorgeous! We plan to come again in the summer!!! I highly encourage anyone to rent this place it's amazing!!! Thank you so much for letting us stay here!
Wonderful home. wonderful location. Superb experience.
We booked this property on whim during the winter and were very pleased with our experience. The owners were very easy to communicate with and you can tell they put alot in to the details so that you will have a great experience at this property. It is located on a mountain side with a gorgeous view of Bear Lake, in a gated community. There is a lodge with hot tub access during the winter. (There are plenty of other amenities included on the property that would be a blast during warmer times). The property is very new and very well maintained, also very clean. Will absolutely be staying here again the next time we are headed this direction, bringing my boat next time!
This was a wonderful stay and we hope to come back! Beautiful location, quiet and peaceful. The owners were great to work with and were very communicative. Everything we needed and more was stocked for our stay. Thanks again for such a great place!
This home was great place to get away for the weekend and enjoy the mountains around the Bear Lake area.
Good time plenty of room for all.
We came from Seattle, Denver and Madison, Wisconsin finding a spot that we could all safely road trip to and gather after Christmas. We probably never would have traveled to this beautiful spot if it hadn’t been for the global pandemic. We loved the location and the home. It is as good as it looks! The owner provided the perfect amount of communication. The home was super clean and well equipped. I’m sure it will get even better based on how the owners wanted feedback. Understandably each group has different needs! We mainly mentioned a comfy chair or two on the first floor for rocking and feeding babies and a heat source for the garage game area would have been really a bonus for us. The kids loved sliding down the hill and the table we used for puzzles, games and projects. Our older kids skied at Beaver Mountain and loved it. We snowshoed and hiked in the development and did a little cross country skiing nearby, too. We cooked our meals in the beautiful kitchen and ordered groceries to pick up in nearby Montpelier. We cherished our time together and loved all the spaces that were created to gather! Our goal was to safely gather and this beautiful home was perfect for us! Thanks!
Little problem with water on first hours but the rest was awesome and we had so much fun. Clean and nice property. They think about everything and have in there.
Spender and Lyndee were fantastic. Property was awesome. Location in the reserve is wonderful. Can’t go wrong staying at this house. Very well appointed. Everything you need. Only thing I would have liked would have been a couch in the living room fireplace area. However, if I was staying here with a huge group, I understand how nice it would be to have two dining room tables. Otherwise, perfect place.
This place is clean smf has lots of room for everyone. We used the dining room/kitchen area, upstairs loft area, and downstairs movie room the most. Some people hid out in bedrooms with TVs, but for the most part we all hung out together. It was awesome to have seating for everyone and huge tables for playing games and doing puzzles. The hot tub at the clubhouse was awesome. We loved all the games in the garage. We even went down and played pickleball and basketball at the courts. I am sure summer time presents lots more outdoor activities, but we loved it in the winter! Such a beautiful place!
Great house with everything you need!
very nice place to accommodate a good sized group. we had 25 of us and everyone had a bed, there was plenty of space for the entire family to sit down to dinner together
Enjoyed a wonderful weekend in Beautiful Bear Lake. The house was amazing. We Liked how all the rooms had king beds, everything was easy to find all labeled, garage games were a ton of fun, and access to the clubhouse was easy. We will definitely be back!
We loved the big kitchen and enough seating for our party! We had enough beds for our party! It’s super cleaned and organized. We would totally stay here again.
We had a great time. The property was will kept. Great location and View. Had great communication with the owners. Will defiantly and the property to scheduled again.
We had a great stay with our family and thoroughly enjoyed the house. The game room was a big hit and there was plenty of space. The pool and hot tub at the club house were clean and very warm for the fall days and evenings. Highly recommend this property!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your home is beautiful and clean and comfortable. Everyone commented that the beds and pillows were sooooooo comfortable. Everyone agreed that our stay was too short. Thank you!
Host was very well organized and the house was amazing! We will definitely be visiting again.
We had a great time! The house is beautiful and well stocked. We enjoyed the pool and tennis courts and the playground. The reserve is close to the north shore state park which was a great location for our little grandkids to play in the lake. Great views of the lake at the house too. We also used the trails to ride four wheelers. Perfect vacation
Beautiful property with amazing view of lake. Private beach access was awesome. Could have used instructions to where the access gate was located but we eventually found it. Loved the deck. Owners were very nice and responsive. The rules were more than I am used to as far as a rental goes and they were posted, emailed and texted twice which is a bit excessive. Suggest they do away with the night before text to get ready to vacate the next day. People do want to enjoy their last night without text stating to get ready to leave the night before. Also suggest better cooking pans. Griddle didn't have the plate and the 2 frying pans they had (one small, one large) were not non stick. No matter how much oil you coated them with the food stuck. Resorted to using the instant pot to saute food. Other than that kitchen was well stocked. Had smart thermometers so you have no control over temperature in the home. But temp seemed to be comfortable for most of us. Suggest they might want to provide some beach chairs since people traveling do not have room to bring their own. Games are located in the garage which as far as I can tell isn't climate controlled. Darts were broken but everything else worked. A few more blankets would be nice for sitting on the deck in the evening. You do have to drive your garbage down to the club house to empty it, so do that before you pack your car. Also have to launder your own beach towels and put them away. So give yourself time for that as well. But overall good experience. We had a great time.
super property so much space there were 14 of us and we all had our own space. The kitchen had everything we needed and the dining tables were awesome. The view from the deck was beautiful. The checkout does require a lot of laundry but just start the night before and it's not a big deal. The Porters have great communication. We would highly recommend staying here.
My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary getaway. It was much more house than needed for two people, but the price was right in the off season, so why not enjoy some luxury? The house was spotless and beautifully decorated and had amazing views of the lake and mountains. Home owners were very accommodating and responsive when there were any questions. Lyndee even arranged for a late checkout when she found out it was just the two of us there for our anniversary. We hope we can come back and bring the kids this summer. Great place to stay!
Great experience, would definitely stay again.
The owners were helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. The children enjoyed sleeping in the loft area and playing with the toy kitchen. The dining area had plenty of seating for a large group. The deck area was overlooking the lake and was a fun place to barbeque and toast marshmallows. The only think that I may have missed were lamps beside the beds. The family also enjoyed the pool area at The Reserve when not at the lake.
Our large group of 25 had an amazing time at this property. The house was clean, large and set up perfectly for groups of any size. The owners were amazing to work with and quick to answer any questions and offer support when needed. 10/10 would stay here again!
Overall, we LOVED our stay... The location was prime, absolutely beautiful inside and out. The house was also gorgeous with great amenities and views and so much space! We did feel a little overwhelmed by everything having a label and the rules being posted all over the home. We also found it odd that the hosts/owners were at the lakehouse when we arrived for check in doing yard work, especially when we were over an hour past the check in time. It was a benefit that they were really sweet and kind, but a bit surprising when they also decided to stop by after 10 PM to drop off a key. Personally, when I go on a vacation, I think part of the benefit is privacy and that felt a bit invaded. There are also cameras everywhere, but that detail was in the booking, so something we expected, however, after running into the owners at check in and then having them stop by again late in the evening it began to feel somewhat invasive. I suggest getting insurance on all rentals, as we had a few accidents during our stay- with kids it is almost inevitable. I will say the owners were understanding and kind when I communicated the damages from our visit. This is a wonderful place and it accomodates large parties very well, I'd just suggest the hosts were less involved with the guests unless you are the type of guest that wants to get to know your hosts.
We had two families stay in this fantastic property for a week in July. The house is spacious with plenty of sleeping arrangements for everyone to be comfortable. The views of the lake from the outdoor deck were great and the well-stocked kitchen allowed us to cook and be together during meals. The owners have thought of everything you might need in order to enjoy the lake, pool and other recreational activities during your stay. As with any rental property, there were a few hiccups during the week but the owners were incredibly responsive and helpful. This makes all the difference when you're trying to enjoy a worry-free vacation. We definitely recommend this home for large groups or multi-family trips. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The home was very new and clean. Everything was labeled and organized, and provided for all the meal prepping we did. The Slide at the community pool was a hit with the kids. Location is about 15 minutes to Garden City or North Beach. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely come again.
We had a family reunion of 24 and the place was perfect for us. The layout and furnishings of the house were done with large groups in mind. We never felt like we were on top of each other even when we were all gathered together. This place is brand new yet the Porter’s have gone to great effort to provide every household convenience- from kitchen, to beds, bedding, even games for both inside and outside. Being located in The Reserve is an added plus to the amenities. Location is great- a short drive to North Beach, Minnetonka Cave, Bloomington Canyon/Lake, ATV/Razr trails, and even Garden City (but far enough away from the crowds). Loved our stay here.
This was a beautiful home that fit our family of 25. It was comfortable and well maintained. The view of Bear Lake from the home was beautiful. The home is well located to various activities to Bear Lake. It was nice to have activities at the home for the children and adults to participate in. The reserve was a great place for swimming and working out at the club house. Tennis, basketball, and pickle ball were great as well as the Frisbee golf. It will be nice when the private beach is available because it will provide a nice amenity to those who come to the reserve. The hosts were great to work with. They were very accommodating about answering questions about the area and the home. Our family enjoyed the stay at the home so much at Bear Lake that they didn't want to leave. It was a great place for our family vacation and hope to be able to do it again.
This was by far our best experience with a rental property. The home was beautiful and had every we needed. The home owners were so helpful and amazing to work with. We had a group of 25 and we all fit comfortably. We can’t wait to come back.
Spencer’s home was very per and clean and comfortable.
We stayed at the Porter home for Memorial Day Weekend and it was absolutely delightful. The home is very modern, clean and a great place for big groups. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!!
I cannot say enough good things about this home. It was absolutely amazing! The owners thought of everything and the house was perfect for our family weekend. The bunk room was so fun for the kids. I stay in vacation rentals all over the country and this is by far the nicest I have have stayed. And the views are breathtaking! You can’t go wrong with this home. Definitely recommend! Thanks Porters for sharing your beautiful home with us.
