Ready for true lake house vibes? This brand new, family friendly home boasts views of the mountain, valley, and lake from the giant windows in the common area. This lovely space combines an open kitchen (complete with farm sink, full size appliances, and an island), picnic style dining area, and a living room complete with a gas fireplace. The deck with a living room style setup is just outside! This is one of two living rooms, as the downstairs den serves as a bonus relaxation space for large groups. Everyone can stay comfortable with the home's central air conditioning. The family dogs can join you on this trip to the lake!

When it's time to head to bed, there are plenty of options for guests to choose from. The first bedroom is just past the kitchen - head past the private washer/dryer and you'll find the room, featuring a king bed and an en suite bathroom with a shower/tub combination. On the opposite side of the first floor, guests can choose between one room with a queen bed and another with two double beds (both served by a hall bathroom with a shower/tub combination).

Downstairs, the fourth bedroom is just to the left of the den. This room features a king bed and an en suite bathroom with a shower/tub combo. Across the way, the final two bedrooms can both utilize a hall bathroom with a shower/tub combo. One room features two double-over-double bunk bed sets and the other features a queen bed.

As part of your stay, guests of this home will have access to the Ideal Beach Resort. This includes access to the tennis courts, volleyball courts, a shared pool and hot tub, mini golf, and so much more!

This house was clean, spacious, and comfortable! Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the back deck is amazing, too.

We had a great family vacation staying at this vacation home. Only thing to know is there is no yard, which was hard for the Littles and the rock driveways were steep and slippery with sandals. Home was nice and clean and had everything we needed although lamps in the rooms would have been nice. FYI, if vacationing like us in July or August, house can not be cooled off more than 70, there are no shades for direct sunlight, and it was quite toasty! We would definitely recommend but probably, for us, we need a yard so kids have a place to play on those off hours. Do not bring cornhole.... there's no place to play it. These are just a few things we wish we would have known beforehand.

From the views to the perfect temps, The Big Blue didn’t disappoint. Super clean, and extremely spacious for our family- this is one place we’d love to come back to! The only down side, we should have stayed for another week!!!

This house was amazing. Easy to check in, close to the beach, and incredible views of the lake. The owners had a kit for our dogs which we appreciated. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The Big Blue is the he best vacation home we could have ever desired in the Bear Lake area. It's hard to figure out where to start, but the obvious would be the breathtaking views from the balcony, 180 degrees of the Caribbean of the Rockies. The deck is perfect for morning coffee and yoga, with plenty of cushy outdoor seating for all. The home is quiet, peaceful and appointed very well. Kitchen has everything you need, it all appears brand new. Not a speck of dust anywhere in the home. Spotlessly clean, plenty of fresh towels and even beach towels are provided. The bedrooms are spacious and quiet and beds are super comfortable. The home is recently built and fully furnished with everything one could desire. Two different lounge areas, and two master suites, this home was designed with two families in mind. Our kids LOVED the twin sets of huge bunk beds in the kids room. Super cozy for them. It's out of the way enough to be tranquil, yet a few minutes to a Raspberry shake and all the amenities of Bear Lake. We will absolutely return and can't say enough about this property. It's magic!!

This beautiful home was perfect for our group of 12. Everyone had their own space. The house is big and spacious with awesome lake views. The downstairs area is just perfect for families with kids. There are board games, foosball, air hockey, puzzles, etc. There are extra blankets if you want to spend some time by the fire pit on the deck at night.
The garage is full of amenities too. There are beach chairs, a canopy, beach wagon, etc. Almost everything you need to go to the beach.
This home has passes to access Ideal Beach Resort. Just be aware it is a pretty long walk to get to the water from the parking area. Make sure you bring a beach wagon or plan to make several trips back and forth.
Will definitely be back!

A wonderful place to stay in bear lake. An exceptionally clean home. Everything is well thought through in this home. The home has breathtaking views and close to all amenities. We loved our access to ideal beach club. Our room was spotless clean and spacious. Can’t wait to come back
Whitney U. Apr 2021
Really great home with plenty of room to pack in a large family. Fully stocked kitchen and even an extra fridge in the garage. The kids loved all of the games and the adults loved the big deck with sweeping views. Everything was Uber clean, which was much appreciated.
One issue is that it does say that it’s easily accessible for the elderly. However, there are three or four concrete steps leading up to the front door that are too narrow for a walker and don’t have any hand railings. We were able to get our elderly aunt in and out, but it would have been very difficult if we didn’t have 4 strong people to help her.
Manager response:
Hi, Whitney! We are so glad you stayed with us and appreciate you bringing the steps to our attention. We will be adding notes about this so everyone is fully aware when considering bringing elderly guests. Thank you!

We loved this house! Stunning lake views, new décor and amenities, plenty of space and fully stocked kitchen. The beds were very comfortable. The board games and toys for the kids was a nice touch. We can't wait to come back!
Kim P. Oct 2020
We enjoyed our October stay at The Big Blue. The views are incredible. The home is well stocked with towels, toiletries, kitchen items etc. We loved the bedroom layout. 4 private rooms and 2 rooms with multiple beds for the kids! The only things lacking were measuring spoons and a whisk. The weather was beautiful - we even saw 8 deer out on a stroll.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and have notified the local manager of your suggestions. We hope to host you again soon!
