  1. Lake Front
    Any property that borders the state-owned ‘buffer strip.' Lake Front means you have access to the water for swimming and a boat dock if applicable to your home. You can go directly to the water from your door with no road between. Lake Front does not necessarily mean you have a view of the water, since much of our shoreline is wooded.

Bear Creek Lodge is a beautiful home with lots of amenities. The kitchen/great room combo is a great space to relax and enjoy views of the lake and trees.

The house and location are wonderful. With such a comfortable nicely kept house and the beautiful lakefront setting, it was surprising that the outside was not kept up as it should be. The ramp to the dock was dangerous as the replaced trek boards were slippery and there was no warning. The outside should at least have had the broken items removed from the patio and should have been swept. But I would go back because of the lakefront access and view.

The place was big enough and very spacious for all of the family members that attended our family vacation. There were enough bathrooms as well for everyone to use so that no one was not able to use a bathroom at one time. However, the water pressure for the showers were terrible except for the master bathroom shower. Bear Creek Lodge is on the water but in the description it fails to mention that you have to walk up and down 83 steps to get to it. We had older family members that were not able to enjoy the pier due to the lack of information in the description of the place when booking it. The description of the place also says that propane would be provided to grill with and we didn’t have any. Although, when we did call maintenance, they dropped off propane right away for us. One of the burners on the stove was broken, the fire pit table had a hole through it so it was almost impossible to build a fire and the dryer also did not work. Bear Creek Lodge has a lot of potential but definitely needs some maintenance attendance.

This was our group's second time renting the house. We absolutely love it. It is plenty of space for big groups and the common area is perfect. We will definitely be back.

As with any property, there were really good things as well as a few that were not so great! Overall, the size and the space of this rental were awesome. It had plenty of room for our family of 12 to enjoy three days together during the holidays. It is a beautiful property that is in dire need of updating. Also, the employees at Railey were amazingly quick with any questions or concerns we had. They were very responsive. However, we did encounter a few problems. The beds in this rental are in need of new mattresses. Not only were the current beds very hard, they also make a lot of noise when anyone moves while sleeping. If not new mattresses, at the very least egg crates to provide some cushioning. And new comforters would be a good investment as I know the quilt on our bed was torn. However, there were plenty of extra blankets that came in handy in the winter. Another issue was the furniture in the great room--there are three reclining massage chairs that neither recline nor massage. We did inquire when the maintenance guy came up to fix the hot water and he checked into it. The owner was aware and has not done anything to remedy the issue. The massage piece is not as vital as the fact that they will not recline because the motors are broken. Also, the love seat has tears in it as well as the oval rug. Lastly, someone needs to go through the cookware and discard pieces that are not only old but also unsafe. Many of the Teflon coated pots and pans have deep scratches and peeling Teflon. They are really not safe to cook in. Fortunately, we brought some of our own cookware, otherwise we would have had to eat out for every meal. And lastly, when going out to get the firewood that was provided, it was wet and covered in snow. It would be good to have dry wood if it is going to be provided. These may sound like small issues but for the price we paid for the rental, I feel that the quality could have been better. However, our objective was to bring our family together under one roof to celebrate the holiday and the size of this property was perfect. We are hoping to rent a large property again next year and hope that maybe we could come up and preview a couple of the rentals to make sure that we choose one that fits our familys need. Thank you for asking our opinion and for being so great to work with.
