  • Great place for large family, lots of room, peaceful winter experience we all needed! Terrific appliances and loaded kitchen with everything needed for excellent meal making. Decent wifi, excellent bedrooms and bathrooms. Muskoka room too cold to use, would be great in the summer. Hot tub a nice bonus! Ice fishing at your own risk, and we loved it. A foot thick in early January, though really cold this year. Make sure you have snow tires on your vehicles. Friendly local hosts, really helpful.

  • Great and very responsive host. She made sure everything was fine at all time. We had one small issue and it was resolved in less than an hour. The house itself is great and there was plenty of place for the 15 of us. We will definitely be back in the summer.

  • 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.

  • We had a most wonderful stay at The Great House for a very special family re-union to celebrate my parents Diamond Wedding Anniversary with a group of 12 people. The house was amazing especially the extremely spacious open plan living room, dining room and the kitchen. It make the celebration extra special. The grandchildren loved swimming in the lake which is quite warm and had great fun trying canoeing and kayaking. We even rented a very nice motor boat and had great fun trying kneeboarding. The motor board is also very good for fishing. We caught quite a lot of big fishes. Even my parents managed to catch quite a lot of fishes from the deck outside the house. They had great fun too. After the excitement of the day, we were able to enjoy the hot tub and the camp fires. There are so many fun things to do on the wonderful site and we feel that we have ran out of time to enjoy everything. Overall, it was great fun for everyone. It made the family re-union very special.

    Marla is a great host. She is so friendly and very quick to respond to my questions. She also provided an extra boat trip for my parents. Even our dog made friend with Marla's dog :-). The holiday has exceeded our expectations.

  • This little cottage sits only steps from the edge of the lake and is really perfect for two people. Our host Marla was really wonderful and a pleasure to deal with. She went out of her way to make sure the accommodations were right for us (she has other cottages on the property that rent to larger groups as well). We enjoyed exploring this beautiful lake in a canoe and on SUPs. We would definitely come back.

  • 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!
