“Bear Hug”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2014

Bear Hug was very nice, clean and well kept. The only problem I had was the steps. This is a bi-level and when you walk in the door you need to go up to get to the living room/kitchen area and down to get to the bedrooms. I would not recommend this unit for anyone over 65. It would not be a problem for anyone under the age of 60. Also the downstairs shower was impossible to use for me because you need to climb into the whirpool in order to use it. I just used the upstairs bathroom, which was no big deal. This unit would be ideal for a younger family.

Response from the manager We do take pride in our well-kept and well-stocked unit, and we are sorry the steps proved an issue for you. As our description states: Bear Hug offers 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the lower level and 1 bathroom on the main level. A spacious and open-concept main floor also has the kitchen with a breakfast bar, dining area and living room. A 2 person whirlpool with shower occupies the bathroom on the lower level. The pictures support the description of our unit. I hope you can find a unit more suited to your needs on your next visit.

“Loved Bear Hug”

Reviewed 21 Mar 2013

Our family of four stayed at Bear Hug for three nights. We have rented through Bpla and others many times and this was by far the best rental. Location is perfect. We walked up to the lift through the trail many times, cross-country skied with lift service, came back for lunch. They have thought of everything you need, beds nice, extremely clean and organized, quiet neighborhood but close to everything. Felt like someone cared, like a favorite auntie who keeps up a place for everyone in the family to use. What a treat!

“Bear Hug the Best”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

My son and I rented Bear Hug for a ski and snowmobile vacation. This rental unit was more than we expected! Very comfortable and clean a wonderful place to stay. While we were staying at Bear Hug the owner of that unit called to see if we had everthing we needed and were pleased with the unit. I have been renting places to stay up north for over 3o years and that's the first time ever the owners called to see if everything was ok. I will absolutly rent here again. The staff at Powderhorn could not have been more accommodating. What a great trip we had. The snow conditions were the best in ten years. I can't what to come back.

Bear Hug was really comfortable. Everything in the kitchen was well labeled and we didn't spend a bunch of time trying to find stuff or figure out how things worked. The furniture was really comfortable too and we had a great fire two nights in a row. We would absolutely stay there again. It was, by far, the nicest and most comfortable place we have stayed at Powderhorn. The only disappointing part is the chairlift that we could have walked to from the path in the back was not operating.

Response from the manager We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Bear Hug and we are sorry the lift out our backyard trail was not open. We hope Mother Nature is more generous with snow on your next visit!

Have been coming to Powderhorn every year for more than 7 years. We always enjoy the skiing and try to plan our trip when the Bear Hug is available. It is always neat, clean, and feels very "homey". Staff at Powderhorn are very friendly and accommodating. We will continue to come back. We are from east central Illinois and feel that the U.P. has the best skiing in the mid-west. The extra mileage is certainly worth it.

“Very nice We will be back”
