Bear Lake Cabins

Boating, skiing, and 70,000 acres of turquoise water.

Straddling the Utah-Idaho border, and less than 10 miles from Wyoming, Bear Lake is an iconic fixture for water lovers in 3 states. While the climate stays cool for much of the year, the summer temps reach into the 80’s and 90’s, giving renown to the title “Caribbean of the Rockies”, and making it a popular spot to have a cabin.

The hub of Bear Lake’s shopping, dining, and tourist activity is centered on the west shore in Garden City, Utah. There you can rent boats, jet skis, paddle boards, and find any other supplies you need to enjoy the lake. When you’re ready for a break, there are plenty of delicious food options, and of course, famous raspberry shakes.

The winter months frequently see single-digit and negative temps, but with the cold weather comes cozy fires, smaller crowds, and ample snow for back country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.

If this sounds like a dream come true to you, then Bear Lake could be an ideal location for your cabin. Take a look at the listings below, and send us a quick email to let us know what you think. Remember, we have access to many more properties in the area than just what appears here. This is just a small sampling.
