Bear Lake is a beautiful freshwater lake straddling the Idaho and Utah state line. It is a popular vacation destination due to its stunning scenery and wealth of exciting outdoor activities. Offering unforgettable hiking, water sports, mountain biking, and skiing, Bear Lake is hard to beat for a family vacation, romantic getaway, or solo excursion. 

Sometimes referred to as the “Caribbean of the Rockies” due to the vibrant blue color of the lake, there is no shortage of gorgeous views while staying at a Bear Lake Luxury rental. 

You can get the best views of this lake by getting out onto the water itself when you rent a motor boat, paddle board, or kayak from one of the local outfitters. These gorgeous blue waters are also perfect for a refreshing swim or relaxing while casting a fishing line

After a long day of adventuring, the ultimate comfort food – a slice of pizza! Head to the charming small towns surrounding Bear Lake for a delicious pie at one of the local restaurants. These are our favorites!
