“It was beautiful”

“We had our wedding at Bear Lake. Let me first say, it was beautiful. We were treated extremely well. We really liked our planner who went out of her way to ensure everything was what we expected. The grounds are amazing. Everyone was very nice. The condos were breathtaking. I highly recommend Bear Lake Reserve.”

“The food is Amazing”

“By far, the best restaurant in our geographic area! Each course was a work of art and the flavors in every bite were well choreographed. Chef Johannes’ food and presentation are unmatched.”

“Bear Lake is our Favorite”

Loved the friendly staff, the gorgeous views, the beautiful home we stayed in, the yummy food from the clubhouse restaurant, the stunning children’s park area with green moss that looked like a fairy land… seriously one of our favorite family trips. A great setting to either chill or go on adventures and enjoy every moment!
