"Reviewed by our group today, "The Golden Bear Cottages was the perfect location for our Middle School and High School Winter Retreats!" Our Review: We brought a group of 50 Middle School students one weekend and a group of 50 High School students the next weekend, and the location was perfect! The staff was friendly and helpful, the cabin accommodations were the perfect blend of rustic charm and modern amenities, and the kitchen in the big cabin was large enough to cook for over 70 people! This is a great place for a group retreat! Our church group stayed twice in February 2015. We traveled with family and friends and these are our review ratings: *****5 of 5 stars for Golden Bear Cottages Location. *****5 of 5 stars for Golden Bear Cottages Sleep Quality. *****5 of 5 stars for Golden Bear Cottages Service. *****5 of 5 stars for Golden Bear Cottages Value."
