It was perfect! we will book Beartrap Lodge again, all of us loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my Grandma’s 80th birthday here! There was plenty of space for all of us!! At some points during the day we had 27 people, and we never felt crowded. Lots of seating indoors as well as outdoors to eat, & visit. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed. Having two kitchens was wonderful for meal prep. We had a bunch of girls in the room with 4 queens-so it was very nice having an additional counter and sink inside the room separate from the bathroom! The TV was large and great for those who wanted to watch the World Cup! There is also a nice area of trees where we set up 3 hammocks. Our family traveled from various parts of UT, WA, CO, and CA and is interested in staying here for a family gathering again! Tara was phenomenal with communication, she quickly responded to any questions I had. Thanks!!! Not far to a small creek and waterfall, I believe hidden valley falls? Great for all ages!

Beautiful place! I recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

I love this cabin. This was my first time visiting as an adult - I went multiple times as a child. It was as wonderful as I remember it! Plenty of space. Gorgeous scenery. Easy access to hiking trails. Fun little swing set for the little ones. If you’re thinking about booking, just do it! You won’t regret it.

The kids enjoyed the loft areas. Dan and Tara were very responsive to several issues/repairs. We’d stay at Beartrap lodge again.

Wonderful Facility in beautiful Big Cottonwood Canyon

  • 5 of 5

We held our family reunion at the Bear Trap Lodge in beautiful Big Cottonwood Canyon (our favorite in the Salt Lake City area). We had small children, teenagers, young adults and seniors; all had a great time. This lodge is well equipped and has all the necessary amenities for a fun time. We especially liked that it is in a self contained area where kids can play without traffic concerns, etc. Tara was helpful and accomodating from the start even allowing us early check in, without charge, since there was no one there the day before. Very reasonably priced for the size of the lodge and conveniently located for all Cottonwood Canyon activities; there are beautiful hiking areas within walking distance of the lodge. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Beautiful location with plenty of space and great functionality for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a large company gathering here and it worked out perfectly. The owner, Tara, was wonderful to work with and quickly answered all of the questions that we had. We had a dozen people stay at the house for 3 days and there was plenty of room for everyone. One day we had 30 people at the house and could all be in the same room together. Having 2 full kitchens made meal prep for 30 people a breeze. We would definitely consider staying again in the future.
