The Shore Fun cottage had everything we needed. It's in a quiet neighborhood in a super-central location. We were close to the main Garden City spots and could walk to the Heritage park in just minutes. If you're concerned with reviews that say the house isn't stocked well, know that has been addressed - the kitchen had pots, pans, appliances, flatware, cutlery... you name it. So thoughtful to have the pet supplies available as well. Would absolutely return.

A cute house to stay in!!!!

Very nice vacation home.
Sara S. Jul 2022
Nice little house with plenty of room inside for our little family. We did expect a small yard to play in so that was a little disappointing but still very nice.
Aaron J. Jun 2022
We loved the stay. Just what we needed 🙂

This is a perfect rental for up to 4 adults and up to 6 kids! We didn't have that many, but it would work! The bedrooms are very roomy. The hosts had a special dog box with essential pet supplies that made everything so easy. A few suggestions: provide a scrub brush for the kitchen! It was nearly impossible to wash dishes with only a bottle brush to be found and no dish cloths. Also a bigger mat in front of the door! Especially in the winter. We kept stepping in our puddles from our snowy boots. That's it. Everything else was perfect!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kelsey, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our beautiful home. We apologize for any supplies you found lacking and appreciate your feedback as a means to improve. We will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your comments. We hope to host you for another 5-star getaway in the future.

The pacman game was fun! :D

We were a little concerned with past reviews on cleanliness. When we arrived the house was clean. Towels and bedding were fresh. The kitchen is well stocked with all the comforts of home. The weather wasn’t great, but there were tons of DVDs to entertain us. There was a basket with dog dishes and bags for picking up after your pet. That was a nice touch. The only minor negative thing is the couch had an odd odor, I wished I’d had some febreeze. The place was great, we would stay there again.
Manager response:
Priscilla, thank you for your feedback! We will notify our local staff of your comments regarding the couch. We look forward to hosting you again!

Cute home close to the lake. Full stocked with everything you might need.
Crystal C. Jul 2021
First the suggestions for improvement:
More thorough cleaning. We spent a little over an hour cleaning after we arrived. Floors had been swept, but obviously not mopped in quite some time. Under beds and the couch hadn't been cleaned and we found lots of dust, used tissues and napkins, as well as various dog toys. Lots of food stuck in the slats of the kitchen table. Rest of home was very clean though.
There are no window coverings for the sliding glass door.
A couple of the plastic patio chairs were broken.
There was a large rip on one of the couch cushions, but it had been sewn previously.
There really isn't much of an outdoor seating area.
Bunk bed mattresses were very uncomfortable.

Other than the areas for improvement, this was a great home that my family and I would rent again. Great location, easy walk to the beach at Bear Lake, quiet neighborhood and excellent view of the fireworks display during 4th of July.
Tons of towels of varying sizes and well equipped kitchen with everything a family would need to prepare meals. Fridge and freezer worked well and the AC kept the home very comfortable.
The welcome basket for our dog was a nice touch.
Plenty of parking for our four vehicles.
While we had to take our own garbage to the dumpsters, they were very close by and were emptied daily.
Check in and out process was quick and easy.
Manager response:
Thank you, Crystal, for your feedback! We are happy you enjoyed this home. Please know that your feedback is essential, and we have passed your comments along to our housekeeping staff and local manager, who will work with the homeowner to make any updates. Again, we apologize for any missteps in cleaning, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We truly hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!

Loved everything about this trip!
Home was clean and well-maintained. Loved that it was pet friendly. Home had everything that was promised in amenities. Would definitely stay here again.
Emily R. May 2021
This property was absolutely perfect for our group. It was very clean upon arrival, and had all the things for we needed for cooking as well as extra blankets and towels. We loved how the closet had games for entertainment! The kids really enjoyed that. The property is close enough to walk to the lake, and even the go cart track. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a larger family/group. Thank you!!!
Silvia W. May 2021
We would definitely stay here again, and I will recommend this particular property to anyone visiting Bear Lake. The place is nice and comfortable. It is in a good location, tucked off the main road. It was clean for the most part. I would have given it a five-star rating, but I had to sweep under the couch and beds, which looked as if it hadn’t been done in a while, and there was some pet hair that was on the floor near the couch, and my allergies started to bother me shortly after arriving. The spaces under the couch and bed are very easily accessible, so I think the cleaning service for which guests pay as part of the reservation should make sure to clean those areas. Some mugs would be nice to have as there are two different coffee makers provided. It is really nice to find a place with two bathrooms with plenty of clean towels.
Manager response:
Hi Silvia, thank you for staying in one of our homes! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We're so sorry for the disappointing experience you had in our home. We will be following up with staff to ensure future cleans will be completed to our high standards. We hope to host you again soon!
Brittany M. Jan 2021
We chose this home for two main reasons; dog friendly and a one level, easily accessible for those with limited mobility. Would definitely recommend this location. Comfortable beds, nice showers. Would recommend you contacting the owner before your trip if you are expecting certain items to be supplied. There were several things I would have liked to know were not provided before my stay, but nothing that would prevent me from staying here again.
Carin H. Sep 2020
Very clean and comfortable. Well stocked.
Darren H. Aug 2020
Modern. New. Great location. Ample amenities and parking. Very confusing check-in and not great communication. On check-out, asked for unreasonable things like putting garbage somewhere, but not clear where.
Stacy H. Jul 2020
Wow! This place exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful, modern, and comfortable. The main rooms were comfortable for all of us to be in and we could all fit on the couch.

My kids loved the triple bunk beds.

The location was perfect and we were happy with our stay.

Beds were a little hard but nothing major to complain about.
Ronna C. Jul 2020
We loved staying here for the week. Very clean, modern, convenient, had everything we needed!
Katharine H. Jul 2020
Clean and quiet.

We loved the whole house. Wish their was more decor. But other then that it was super clean and my family loved it.
Angela R. Jun 2020
This house is beautiful with plenty of spacing and a large yard, as advertised. However, there were several things that were concerning and I would not recommend renting this Airbnb / “Vacasa”.

1. You cannot get a hold of any of the “hosts”. This rental is owned by an entirely different company that also rents over 400 properties. I’ve called and texted multiple numbers, messaged the host on AirBnb, and could not get a hold of anyone. The initial number that was given to me after my reservation was confirmed, was a Vacasa customer service line that informs you the wait time is over 60 minutes. I called numbers listed on the fridge only to find out those numbers were out of service. This is a concern for any potential emergencies that could occur.

2. Listing says there is an option to check-out late, however since you can’t reach anyone for this rental, the option to check-out later than 10:00 am is unrealistic.

3. Although there are plenty of plates and silverware, the pots and Tupperware bowls are definitely limited. If you plan to have as many guest that this rental allows, I would not recommend cooking as there are not enough pots and Tupperware to store food in.

4. There are literally no garbage cans. You have to store your full trash cans to your car, and dispose of them to the nearest dumpster. Very inconvenient and this is not stated in the listing. This made things difficult for a three night stay.

5. For the reasons above, I would not recommend staying here for the price I had paid. I still have yet to receive a response to any of the many attempts I made to speak to the host of this rental.
Manager response:
Hi, Angela! We appreciate such helpful feedback and apologize for the inconveniences you experienced as we worked through some wrinkles while adjusting to being open under COVID-19 regulations, which includes no late check-outs or early check-ins. We have provided emergency numbers on the fridge for guest use. There is no roadside garbage service in this area, so guests do need to take their trash with them. We will speak with the owner about your concerns so we can make improvements. Thank you!
Kylie M. May 2020
The location and the house are beautiful. It is brand new and really nice. They are missing some essential kitchen items so bring what you need. Great space and good for families. House was not cleaned super well. There were dirty dishes, bugs in all the showers and food and toys under the couches and table. know that getting a hold of the rental company is NOT easy. They still have not responded to any of my messages that’s were sent 3 weeks ago. Really really awful customer service. I rented through Airbnb thinking I would get a host and I didn’t. It was not a good feeling.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Kylie. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and apologize if the cleanliness of the home left much to be desired. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Michael M. May 2020
This place is the best home I rented in bear lake. I didn’t have to buy anything had all the dishes and supply I needed to use in this house. We will definitely be renting this home again. Very comfy new home 🥰 !!!!!

Nice and clean, great size for our group
Heath D. Jan 2020
Plenty of space. New house. Comfortable furniture. Was missing a few things like coffee cups, a mop, and a shoe rack would have been nice. Coffee maker was type that uses pods and was slow to brew. None of that would prevent me from going back. Beautiful views, close to town. I'm impressed!
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback and have shared your suggestions with the owner. Thank you for staying with us!
Laura A. Sep 2019
This is a cute little cottage that is perfect for a quick getaway to the beach..:we had a great time!
William G. Sep 2019
New place with nice furniture and appliances. We did have a few problems which I attributed to newbies in the STR business. Coffee maker was a kuerig type and no starter pods were provided. There were no coffee cups or directions on where to take garbage. No cable, but Watchfree channels that did not have local news. Bunk beds are for children or smaller adults. Most important, we called Vacasa and they said someone would call us. Amy did do a safety check upon arrival, but did not leave contact number. No one called us back. Basically poor communication.
Manager response:
William, thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback following your stay. We sincerely apologize for the poor communication you experienced. Please know that the comfort and satisfaction of our guests is our priority and the experience you had is certainly not commonplace, nor is it indicative of our level of service. We have passed your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with the homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We hope to host you again!
Kimberly H. Aug 2019
Great place! Everything was new and worked perfectly. Would recommend!
Cori K. Jul 2019
Loved staying here- new, clean, air conditioned and very comfortable. Felt like a very nice hotel. This home included everything we needed, and we would love to stay here again!
Austin A. Jun 2019
This home was more than we could have hoped for! It is GORGEOUS and still smells brand new! I want to come back to Bear Lake just to stay at this home. The pictures and description are accurate. We had an issue with the AC, but called and were able to get that fixed immediately. We were so pleased with this rental! Can't wait to come back!
