  • 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 spent a long weekend at Marla's place and it was not nearly enough time! There was a large group of us (12 people) and plenty of room to enjoy every moment. Marla responded quickly and to all questions before our arrival and helped coordinate plans so we had a smooth trip to the island. She checked in on us during the weekend and made it easy to reach her.

    The property is beautiful and plenty of activities. The lake and surrounding areas are breath taking, wish I was still there!

  • We were ten for the night and had a great time. Check-in was easy and friendly. The place had everything we wanted and more. Exactly as advertised. Great kitchen! Great hot tub! Highly recommended for a weekend getaway. Would be amazing for a longer summer stay, too.

  • 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!

  • 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

  • The cottage is so beautiful and surpassed all of our already high expectations! I cannot understate how fabulous they look—both units are superbly-finished, lack nothing in terms of amenities or comfort, and are punctuated by an incredible view and serene environment. We will be back!
