  • 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.

  • My wife, 11 week old daughter and I stayed 5 nights at the lower lake house. Our experience was wonderful. From the moment we reserved the place, Marla was in touch with us, through email, to see if there was anything we needed to make the stay better. Closer to the date we were put in contact with her team on the grounds which made settling in that much easier. The Lake House had an amazing view of the lake and lots of room to swim and park your boat. The people we met while staying there made the week that much better as everyone was very friendly. I would recommend the Lake House, or any other of the properties Marla has to rent as the people, the location on the lake and the lake itself are nothing I have seen before and it makes for a perfect vacation.

  • We are 14 professionals who held a work retreat at Marla’s cottage. We had a fantastic stay! The cottage was beautiful. There was plenty of space for everyone. It was certainly nice to have so many bathrooms. The screened-in porch was great for group meals. We loved playing in the water on the various recreational water toys. Would definitely recommend!

  • 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!

  • This is my second time back at the bobs lake cottages! The weather was a little chilly but we enjoyed the beautiful fireplace they had inside the little house.

    The communication was precise and on time. The amenities are complete so you basically need to bring your food and you’re set!

    Nothing beats the view from these cottages!

    Would come back here any day!

    Thank you for a great time.

  • 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.

  • 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!
