  • This was an absolutely dream vacation. Exactly as advertised and more. The kitchen felt like it was tailor made for us, air fryer, ice cream maker and fully stocked utensils and tools meant we were able to cook whatever we wanted.
    The views in the living room, bedroom and from the hot tub were gorgeous.
    We rented kayaks and loved being able to just walk out of the place to the beach and hop in to paddle away.
    All the staff was lovely and offered us lots of suggestions about what to do and where to go on the water.
    This was the most relaxing time my husband and I have had in a long time. We will 100% be returning.

  • We had a great vacation at the island cottages. Everything was as described. Our kids loved playing basketball and ping-pong and enjoyed all water activities- kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. The kitchen was modern and had everything required for a great stay. We even made ice cream in the ice cream maker. We truly enjoyed our stay!

  • Thanks Marla for having us at your property Aug. 2-6th. My husband and I had the opportunity to get away just the two for the first time in 10 years. We really enjoyed the cottage itself - so well appointed. Loved all the details and found the bed very comfortable. We brought our two small pups and REALLY enjoyed the dog friendliness of the property.

    The only challenge we had was were sandwiched between three families who had rented the cottage on either side of us. The families had multiple kids and we did not feel as though the 'shared' waterfront was useable for us. The pictures of the cottage did not show the proximity to the cottage directly beside us. Privacy was a bit of an issue.

    Overall we did really enjoy our stay and would definitely consider renting a more private cottage on your lovely property.

  • Our stay at the cottage was lovely! the place was tidy and clean, there were lots of fun activities to do with family. The view was wonderful and the water looked crystal clear! Joe took us boating and was very generous! As for payment, he asked for our Thai food! Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay and are looking to come back!
    Thank you Martha, Joe and Maria

  • We had the most wonderful vacation at Marla’s cottage. The location plus the view are absolutely stunning and Marla was a dream to deal with. I highly recommend this cottage. It was so clean and we will definitely look to stay here again in the future.

  • We really enjoyed our week at the Great House! Loads of room and spent most of our trip on the beach and on the screened in porch. Bob's Lake is gorgeous and the kids spent their days in the water - great for children. Kitchen fabulous and has everything you need. Fishing was exciting and lake perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding. Cottages a little close together and be ready for next door's friendly dogs to greet you during the day - not a cottage for those afraid of dogs. Marla quick to respond to all inquiries! Will hopefully be back :)

  • Our third visit to this cottage, and we keep coming back because it's such a great place to stay! Super quiet lake, amazing view from the front of the cottage, great swimming, lots of privacy, very friendly and responsive staff. Just an all around great vacation.

  • We had a great stay at The Little House! Location-wise, it can’t be beat. We wanted a quiet spot where we had access to a lake for swimming and where we could stay put for a few days. Marla’s spot was perfect for that! While there are a few cottages/rentals on the property, we felt like we had plenty of privacy throughout our stay.
