“Awesome Family Reunion 2014 at Three Bears Lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We had a great time! 54 total family members from all over the US came. Rented out 5 connected villas. Everyone was together but had their own private rooms. Staff went out of their way to accommodate! Waterpark was perfect for babies, kids, teens, grandpa & grandma, and adults. Was not crowded like the Dells! Our family members were impressed that we could find such perfect accommodations! Had an area behind our villas for our family Olympic games, water balloons, cookout, family pictures, etc. We had a blast and would definitely recommend going back. Thanks Three Bears Lodge for making the Zirker family reunion a great success!

Loved the lodge we stayed at! Very private! Would recommend getting day passes for jellystone or a golf cart rental from the villa rental shop($115 a day but includes 4 jellystone passes). You can bring coolers to jellystone, not allowed at 3 bears. Snack and tiki bar prices were reasonable at 3 bears! Our villa had a full kitchen, so we mainly packed food and ate at our cabin. My kids land husband loved jumping off the dock into man made lake at 3 bears! Great value... Nice privacy... No lines= happy family!!!

Our family, children and grandchildren spent several days at Three Bears this summer. Everyone had a great time. Rooms were very nice, the service was friendly, and the restaurants were really good. Would definitely do this again.

Very friendly staff, great fun at the indoor waterpark. The only thing negative was that WIfi wouldn't work in our room. Had to use computer in lobby. Scenery was beautiful and very welcoming area. With all the rooms and pool area, it was a very quiet place to stay.

Room Tip: We had a beautiful king suite with a in-room whirlpool. Room temperature was well controlled while...

This is a pretty property with lots of family-friendly amenities. We rented a villa based on an internet search of the property. Parking is competitive around the villas (not in a good way.) The grounds immediately around our villa were totally covered with cigarette butts, plastic grocery bags and assorted trash including dirty diapers. It was also covered with hundreds of ant hills! The villa itself was cute but tight. There were no dressers/mirrors/alarm clocks in the bedrooms, two burnt out lights, none of the interior doors were level and there was a thriving spider population inside. The kitchen was poorly equipped and the futon in the living area made horrible screeching noises when touched. It didn't help that what seemed to be a thundering herd was in the unit above us. We are used to resorts having quieter lodging, providing well-equipped kitchens, blow dryers, alarm clocks and little convenient things like that. We had to go out and buy a blow dryer. The beds (not the futon) were very comfortable. There were plenty of towels, too. The on-site convenience store was a marvel - well-stocked and clean and the prices were fantastic - no gouging here! The staff we encountered were completely friendly and professional. The skate park and water parks were super clean and it appeared that all in attendance were having a blast. If we could offer any suggestions it would be to police and clean up the grounds around the villas. A first impression sets the tone and can't be re-done.

Room Tip: If renting a villa, get the TOP floor.

We recently stayed here with another family and rented a cabin for 10. It was a tight fit but the additional space and the kitchen were great for cooking meals. The loft area was perfect for the kids at night. We loved the dishwasher and laundry facilities within the cabin. What a treat to be able to pack light!

Customer service could improve though. Upon check-in we had to ask what cabin we were located in as we were not told and they thought that we were owners of the cabin. We received no information about the facilities or services offered. They still use keys for the cabins. A simple renovation would allow keycards which seem to be a little more secure. They also have large box televisions instead of flat screens. For upwards of $400 a night, a flat screen would be appropriate. In this day and age a place without flat screens tells me that a renovation is needed in the facility.

We consistently had to ask for additional items such as dishwashing and laundry detergent. They forgot twice to bring us additional garbage bags and our bags were not picked up for 24 hours outside of the cabin.

They should allow duel access with the Jellystone Park for the use of their facilities. It seems as though both parks would benefit from each others amenities instead of charging upwards of $20+ per day for the use of each others watermarks and other perks. Reciprocity between the two parks would seem to benefit both of them in terms of occupancy as the more amenities that one offers the greater the likelihood of more people. I realize that they are two different properties with two different owners but both could benefit from each other. Both properties use the same floor plans for the cabins.

If the price is right, I would stay here again but it would have to be a pretty good deal.
