A house that's shaped like a shoe sits right on the edge of Bear Lake, a gorgeous mountain lake on the Utah/Idaho border. To see the shoe house, drive north on hwy 89 from Garden City, turn right towards Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge, then turn south and drive along the road on the east side of the lake.
