We always have enjoyed family vacations and family reunions. For many years, our summer vacation was at Lake Powell, along the Utah and Arizona border. Finally, we decided to fulfill our dream of owning a home or cabin near a lake. In the summer of 2000, after searching through many Arizona properties, we ventured to Utah in search of a perfect property and after days of searching, s still could not find what we wanted. On the last day of our trip we decided to drive up to Bear Lake to visit some family friends and see what Bear Lake had to offer.
When we crested the summit we beheld a large, gorgeous lake of the most exquisite turquoise color and we were ecstatic. Within that year we made 6 trips to Bear Lake and finally found the property that suited us, but was unfinished. We named it Bear Lake Lodge and within six months finished the basement and other remodeling we had planned. We enjoyed our summer at the lake so much that we decided to rent it out so others could enjoy it when we were not there. The demand for family reunion lodging at Bear Lake was so great that in 2006 we purchased another property we fell in love with and named that one Fish Haven Creek Lodge, a 16 bedroom, previously a Bed & Breakfast.
