Perfect for our small family reunion

  • 4 of 5

The Retreat on Badger was perfect for our family reunion of 17. The view of the lake is fantastic, and the proximity to Rendezvous Beach and Garden City was perfect. The cabin is beautiful and well-maintained. We enjoyed the games and puzzles, and the kids loved the play structure outside. There were enough beds to comfortably sleep 13 people and then an additional two futons which accommodated 3 more. The futon in the game room is not very comfortable, but we had kids sleeping on it, and they didn't seem to mind. There are linens for the futons, one comforter and a few light blankets. We could have used one more larger comforter for the second futon. The cabin is well-stocked with regular towels, but we could have used some extra hand towels, wash clothes, and bar soap. One of the showers wasn't functioning properly while we we there. When I contacted the owner she promptly offered to have someone come out and fix it. We managed fine with one less shower, but I appreciated her offer and responsiveness. Overall it was a fantastic stay, and we would definitely stay there again!

Accomidations were even better than we expected. Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We have rented 3 different Cabins at Bear Lake. All had different pluses and minuses. This cabin is a wonderful setup for family gathering. Rec Room in the garage has pool table that was in use much of the time. The pingpong table had been recently broken, may want to confirm if it has been replaced if pingpong is an important consideration. VRBO writeup stated that access to the Ideal Beach resort was included, we called to confirm prior to visit and learned that resort access is not normally included. However, the owner was happy to leave entry passes. The Web site should be updated if resort access is not included. We found that everyone stayed entertained at the cabin and we ended up not going down to the resort. During the winter only the hot tub at is open anyway. If resort access is important I would recommend you call ahead and request that passes be left at the cabin. Great value for the price. Would highly recommend. We would love to visit again.

Wonderful property with amazing views of the lake. Great parking if you have boats and toys. We had 4 vehicles with boats and jetskis and had plenty of room for more. There were linens and blankets for the beds but if you need to use the futons, there were none. A few extra linens and blankets would be nice. There were nice little extra touches like little soaps and Febreeze in all the bathrooms. We had 15 of us ranging from 6 mo to 88 and we were very comfortable! The beds are very tall so if you are short like granny (4' 11"), getting in and out of bed was an adventure. We found folding chairs and used them as step stools. However, my 6' 6" son loved them. Game room was fun and everything is furnished beautifully! Nice and clean. Beyond our expectations for a rental. Did I mention the amazing views? Overall excellent property and we will be back!
