  • The cottage is a great place for our big party, plenty of spaces and a lot of activities to do in the cottages.We enjoyed a lot in the lake in this hot summer. Marla is a great host.

  • All in all everything was great but, we did have a few issues that our group was not impressed with!
    I will start with the good. The place itself was very nice, clean, and the a/c works great! The pictures are correct. The balcony and bbq are a great combo if you get the upstairs like we did. The water was great and the firepit was ok, needs to be bigger.

    The bad. So I hope every morning bright and early that you enjoy being woken up by the ridiculous yappy dog of the owners. The last thing we wanted to hear on our vacation! We both brought our dogs and not once did they sit out side and do stuff like that.
    So we rented a boat from Larry which was cool and all, but right when we went to take it out we were met by another cottage renter that had also booked the same boat. Now poor Larry and his other buddy have no idea what's going on because someone else took off and didn't leave the books. makes sense right? No! Not at all. So after a half hour of dicking around and 2 boats later, I had to bail out the 'new boat', fun times!

    I'll leave it at!
    All in all nice place, but piss poor management!!

  • The cottage is so beautiful and surpassed all of our already high expectations! I cannot understate how fabulous they look—both units are superbly-finished, lack nothing in terms of amenities or comfort, and are punctuated by an incredible view and serene environment. We will be back!

  • We had an incredible stay at Marla’s island compound. The basketball court was a huge hit with our group followed by a lake swim and a hot tub with a view. We loved having the pontoon boat available to do a bit of fishing. I would recommend this place to a group of friends or group of families. Will keep it on my list to return to.

  • Marla's Great House is the best place for a family reunion like we had (large group) or a small wedding. We had such a wonderful time. The house is spotless, the beds are very comfy. The staff is wonderful and helpful, always ready to answer our questions/calls. We highly recommend this house for a great getaway

  • We had a great stay at Marla's property. The place is beautiful and well equipped with supplies and amenities. Being completely secluded from other properties was a big reason for why we decided to go with this rental, and it was an amazing experience. Would definitely stay here again!

  • An amazing space for large families with kids. Beach was perfect, water toys so much fun, and deck space great size. We loved the screen room and ping pong table. The kitchen was easy to work in with multiple families. Thanks for a great stay on Bob's Lake..a true hidden gem of a lake!

  • OUR WHOLE FAMILY LOVED IT!!

    And this was the winter-- we cannot even imagine how gorgeous it would
    be in the summer! We had three generations staying in The Great House
    and we all loved it. My mother was wheelchair bound, so the handicap
    bedroom and bathroom made it possible for the whole family to stay
    together. I love to cook, so the huge kitchen made it a pleasure to
    cook for 15. And having a piano there was so special, as was having 5
    bathrooms! We are hoping to come back for a family reunion since Marla
    told us we could rent all 5 houses and have the whole compound to
    ourselves.
