  • We stayed with Marla for 5 days in the summer. The lake is beautiful and calm, we felt like we were on a private lake. The cottage was great and had amazing views. We arrived, settled in right away and were able to begin relaxing immediately. The cottage lived up to the photos and listing. We loved waking up in the morning and having coffees out on the beach, heading out for a swim and enjoying the lake. We also rented a boat from Marla so that we could go fishing and travel around the lake. We really loved our stay and definitely plan on coming back. Marla was also super helpful with different things and was easy to get a hold of throughout our stay.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • We had amazing time in Marla's house. There were 11 of us. House has a private beach and beautiful rustic garden. The house is very spacious, full of light, very comfortable and cozy. All appliances and kitchen furniture and hardware are brand new.
    Communication, check in and checkout were smooth.
    We are planning to be back.

  • The Great House was absolutely perfect. Even in the winter, the cottage was beautiful. When you stepped out to the frozen lake you couldnt hear a sound - it was so serene and peacefu. Every appliance we needed was there, the beds were comfortable, and the place was beautifully designed overall. Marla also responded to all my questions within minutes and was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. We truly had an unforgettable weekend and plan to return in the summer!

  • Great cottage! A perfect quiet getaway from the city. The cottage had everything we needed and easily accommodated our large group. A very unique cottage with some amazing scenic views.

    The island is easy to get to from the marina (about a 5 min boat ride).

    Marla was a great host and very accommodating, checking in with us to make sure we had everything we needed.

  • Marla is a wonderful host, who went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. It is a beautiful place and ideal for large gatherings. We stayed at the Great House, a beautiful place with all the comforts one would need. The view is amazing and very serene. We also had the opportunity to see the cottage on the island, which is a beautiful rustic place and we want to go back there. We will definitely recommend this place.

  • It's hard to say whether the home was more amazing or the host was. Marla was incredible the entire time we were there and made sure we were taken care of in every single way possible. The property was more of a beautiful lake home than it was a cottage, but the layout made it simple to have our big group of 15 stay very comfortably. The grounds were in immaculate condition, like the rest of the house and the lake is absolutely perfect. We brought our boat even though Marla offers a wide selection of boats to rent and spent a lot of time on the water which made our weekend one we wont forget. There is not one thing that was lacking from this place and we will be back for sure as soon and as often as we can.

  • 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!
