  • We stayed in the top unit of the duplex on Bob's Lake and it was absolutely beautiful! The view of the lake was incredible, the cottage very comfortable and well equipped. Bob's Lake was perfect for us - a beautiful, clean lake that was perfect for some family quality time swimming, kayaking and canoeing. We even saw some deer! We definitely hope to be back!

  • This was our second stay at Marla's stunning cottage and I am still under the charm. I wanted to share with more of my friends the exceptional beauty of this place. It is quite a special place that will delight everyone. Marla is a great host and has a rock star team on-site available all day if anything is needed. The South Frontenac area and Bob's lake are also quite fantastic and I look forward in coming back in the area again!

  • The water is amazing. Kayaking on the lake was fantastic.
    The whole experience is amazing. It would be better if any of us had a boating license so we will have a little flexibility, instead we asked a lot of help from Marla.

    Meanwhile, the hosts are amazingly helpful and welcoming.

  • Awesome, awesome, awesome location! The lake is fairly quiet and secluded. The entire time we felt like we had a private lake to ourselves.

    The accommodations also provide access to some great water toys (canoe, kayak, and paddle boards). The space was clean, comfortable, and cozy.

    I would recommend this spot to anyone who’s looking for a nice cottage getaway!

  • Bobs lake cottage is simply amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. The cottage is big enough to accommodate a large group; there are many bedrooms/beds/washrooms and space. This means everyone can be comfortable together and you can equally find individual peaceful moments. It is beautiful + peaceful & Marla is amazing! Extremely helpful and responsive

  • My family of 13 and I had a fantastic time staying at Marla’s! Everyone who works at the property was beyond welcoming and did everything in their ability to help make us right at home, answer all our questions and quickly resolve any issue that we had. The boat rental on site made it extra convenient and my parents loved taking it out for a spin. The lake was warm and beautiful and we definitely cannot wait to return - we’re already thinking about coming back next year!

  • I booked this cottage for myself, my son, my mom and sisters. It was perfect for our needs.

    The lake is gorgeous, accessible and very nice to swim in. The cottage comes with lots of water activities included (kayak, canoe, paddle boat).

    It’s also very close to Westport (20 min) which makes a fun little half day trip :) We did it, and it was nice to get out for a bit.

    The cottage is part of a larger cottage resort. They have different accommodations for large groups which is something I’ll look into the future. The larger house on the property has an even nicer private beach!

  • We had a great experience at bobs cottages. We had the eagles nest cottage and we enjoyed it very much!

    We even had an issue with the fridge they brought us a brand new fridge.

    We rented a boat as well with great rates!

    I would recommend Marla to anyone looking for great cottages!

  • We spent a fantastic long weekend at this cottage over Labour Day, and both of us agreed - even though it was quite rainy and cool most of the weekend, it was one of the best weekends we'd had all summer.

    The cottage itself is picture-perfect. Bright, clean and very homey feeling. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The highlight is definitely the view of the lake from the living room - floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake. The indoor fireplace make it incredibly cozy on cooler nights. The front deck offers more spectacular views, and there's a firepit right off to the side, where you can enjoy a campfire at the same times as the beautiful views of the lake.

    With canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, water toys, floating docks, etc, available to you, you can really make the most of your time. The lake is generally quite calm, great for those just learning to kayak or canoe, and the swimming is excellent (even in the rain).

    Finally, Marla was such a warm, accommodating host - ensured we had everything we needed, and went over and above to ensure we had a wonderful time. Our only regret is that we only discovered this place at the end of the summer - we can't wait to return.

  • 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
