Bear Lake, Utah

Bear Lake is over 250,000 years old. It was formed by fault subsidence that continues today, slowly deepening the lake along the eastern side. Originally named “Black Bear Lake” by Donald McKenzie, an explorer for the North West Fur Company who explored the lake in 1819, the name was later shortened to Bear Lake.  Learn more here.

Goodell Family

We are long time Bear Lake Enthusiasts who have owned rental property there since 2015. We spend our summer at a 2nd home we own on the lake and manage several properties we own and several for other people. The location near the lake, the restaurants and shops and bike path along with the quality of this property have made this location one of our favorites.
