This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

It was a leap of faith for Roger and Heidi Eggett to buy Bear River Lodge 20 years ago. He was a CPA and saw the business for sale, so they talked to the owner and 90 days later … they were the owners. They put their Bountiful home up for sale and moved with their four daughters into a one-bedroom cabin in the Uintahs to launch their new business.

Today, Bear River Lodge is providing a great recreation experience with one, two, three and five-bedroom cabins available for rent and partial ownership, and the biggest cabins sleep up to 22 people. There’s also equipment rentals, like ATVs and side-by-sides for summer, and snowmobiles and snow bikes in winter. While families are their target market, they’ve found an audience with large groups.

Bear River Lodge borders the National Forest Service, so they have 400 miles of trails. This popular recreation destination is hosting approximately 3,000 guests annually, with high repeat business, and they have The Burly Bear Grille on property that serves lunch with their famous soft ice cream. A best practice for Bear River Lodge is to update their recreation equipment frequently to ensure guests have a safe and great time.
