WiFi In Cabins 1 through 5

GREAT NEWS! For those of you who must have internet access 24/7 you can now access the internet from Cabins 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

I am actually making this post sitting at the kitchen table in 5-1.

I also just used my Verizon Wireless cell phone from this same location.

So for those of you who must stay connected you can now come up and stay in your comfort zone.

The weather today is absolutely beautiful. The temp this morning is already in the 50s and it looks like it is going to be a great week with sunshine projected for the next several days.

Also, mention this blog post, and get free catch and release fishing with your cabin rental for this weekend. The weather should be beautiful!

The Hill is Leaving

For many the Hill has become a landmark. For some it has been an inconvenience (trucks pulling trailers and wanting to park by the cabins). For everyone it will now be a memory.
As shown in the photos we removed the Hill yesterday. This will open up significant parking and allow us to do more landscaping around the cabins.
We are expecting a nice weekend so come on up and check out the new store and be one of the first to take out the new ATVs.

Out With the Old...In With the New

What a beautiful weekend at the Bear River Lodge and what a beautiful sight when you pull in! You now have a clear view of our five log cabins. The old shop, store, and restaurant buildings are completely gone and have been replaced with a new convenience store and new office we're just waiting for all of the snow and mud to be completely gone! With a few more weeks of nice weather, we should be able to get some nice landscaping in and some new parking areas. We will also be able to begin our much-anticipated construction.

Visit us early for some great specials on cabins and rentals. You can check out the specials tab on our website for updated discounts that we are currently running. Summer is beginning to fill up, so get your reservations now! We are looking forward to a great summer. This is the first weekend we feel like the summer may actually come. Continue visiting our blog for updates and pictures.

Goin' Fishin'

Yesterday, we had 1,200 new brown and rainbow trout put into our two ponds. The ponds are still about 70% frozen over, with a thin layer of ice, but with the warm weather we've been having, they should thaw out soon. Join us for some great fishing this summer!
The new guest-registration office and the new store are progressing quickly. The summer promises to be one full of exciting changes and progress. We welcome your comments and questions on the blog and hope you continue to follow our activities and progress!

New Water System Now Running

We have replaced the main water line and now have excellent water pressure to each cabin. With this step complete, there should be very little interruption in cabin usage throughout the remainder of the construction.

Three to four inches of snow fell Sunday night and it snowed most of the day yesterday, but did not accumulate. With the warm weather scheduled for later in the week, it should be an excellent weekend to come and enjoy the mountains.

This morning we are stocking the ponds with about 1,200 brown and rainbow trout. Check out the next post for pictures.

The old store and garage are just about gone. All debris should be gone by the end of the week.

New construction will most likely not be starting for about four weeks. We can not start until the ground is dry and our experts tell us that will be in about four weeks if it will stay warm and dry for a little while.

Keep checking as we post more about our construction and development.

Setup of Temporary Space Underway

Demolition is well under way. We are about 50% through the process of removing the old buildings and setting up our temporary work space.

The new convenience store will be mostly ready for operation this weekend. A few items that require extra plumbing may need another week or two but the store should be completely ready by Memorial Day weekend.

We have two temporary office trailers set up. One will be used for ATV and snowmobile rentals. It has an area for helmets, suits, and boots. It has a check-in area for contracts and paperwork and a lounge area for those who may need a break and want to wait for others to finish up their adventure.

The second trailer is for cabin and housekeeping usage. All cabin guests will check-in at this office. There is also office space for sales presentations and for those interested in looking at the construction plans.

Check back often to follow our progress.


Demolition Has Begun

Thank you to all who came to the Home Owners’ meeting on Wednesday. I appreciate your comments and input and look forward to seeing you over the coming year.

This will be the first post of many as we begin our construction season. Our goal this year is to construct the swimming pool, pool house, and two large outdoor hot-tubs. Additionally, we are building the first five-bedroom cabin (which will be known as Cabin #6).

The demolition is moving along. We started Wednesday and made good progress by the time I left last night.

The new store is just about set up in the prior cabin known as the sales office. This store will be great. It is a great spot for the store and will be able to offer a wide variety of products. Probably the highlight of the store will be make-it-yourself soft ice cream cones.

This morning we are starting to remove the older buildings. Our goal is to have them completely removed by Friday.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments and feel free to make your own posts.

Have a great week and check back often.
