Welcome to Mimi's Lodges! Sleeps 8, Walk to the Lake
The Baby Bear Cottage is a quaint little home built in the 1950's. It sleeps 8, is approximately 1200 square feet, and is on one level. It's a 5-minute walk to the lake (via 150 South) or to nearby restaurants.
The cottage has a living room with large TV, DVD player, a fun 1950's-era kitchen with a breakfast nook, and a laundry room. There is one hall-accessed bathroom which has a toilet, vanity, and shower/tub combo. Two bedrooms have two twin beds each, and one bedroom has a queen bed. There is a queen sofa bed in the common area. The living room and bedroom furniture, as well as bedding and towels, was replaced Spring 2018.
Baby Bear Cottage is located on Bear Lake Boulevard in the heart of Garden City. Outside, there is a propane BBQ grill and table and chairs for enjoyment under the large shade trees. A children's playground is situated between Baby Bear and Mama Bear and is shared by the two properties.
Our greeter is available to answer questions during check-in and lives close by. You can also contact me if you have any questions.
There is a nice city park about 2 blocks south of the cabin. It has a playground, a large covered pavilion, and a large grassy field. To the east of the city park is a boardwalk that goes through some wetlands to the lake.
There are two restaurants next door: Bear Trapper Steak house and Bear Lake Pizza. The Bear Trapper steak house caters. Other restaurants are within walking distance as well.
For larger groups, see our other listings. The Mama Bear Family Cabin sleeps up to 16. The Papa Bear Family Reunion Lodge can handle groups up to 50. Or, for *really* large groups, you can rent all three cabins as they are all adjacent to each other on 1.25 acres of land.
Dear Reader: please note that this charming cottage does not have granite counter tops. It is not state of the art. The kitchen is original to the house and has pink cabinets. It is clean, comfortable, very conveniently located, and a good value. Please look at the pictures, as we have never attempted to hide any of these facts. If you are looking for a brand-new, fully-modern rental, this is not a good fit for you. :)
