  • Marla was exceptionally accommodating and made our stay easy and enjoyable. Her cottage was beautiful and relaxing with the fireplace and hot tub as an added bonus! The view of the lake was incredible and I can't wait to come back and visit in the summer time.
    Definitely recommend staying here at any time of the year!
    Thanks Marla!

  • Very spacious and comfortable beds!The lake in the back is a great plus for our trip. Ice skating and ice fishing kept us occupied. The kitchen is FULLY equipped even with 2 fridges. Sherri was very helpful. She passed by everyday to clean the hot tub, which reliviated us from going through the hassles of reading cleaning instructions, measuring and adding chrorine into the hot tub. Greatly recommended!

  • 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!

  • All in all everything was great but, we did have a few issues that our group was not impressed with!
    I will start with the good. The place itself was very nice, clean, and the a/c works great! The pictures are correct. The balcony and bbq are a great combo if you get the upstairs like we did. The water was great and the firepit was ok, needs to be bigger.

    The bad. So I hope every morning bright and early that you enjoy being woken up by the ridiculous yappy dog of the owners. The last thing we wanted to hear on our vacation! We both brought our dogs and not once did they sit out side and do stuff like that.
    So we rented a boat from Larry which was cool and all, but right when we went to take it out we were met by another cottage renter that had also booked the same boat. Now poor Larry and his other buddy have no idea what's going on because someone else took off and didn't leave the books. makes sense right? No! Not at all. So after a half hour of dicking around and 2 boats later, I had to bail out the 'new boat', fun times!

    I'll leave it at!
    All in all nice place, but piss poor management!!

  • 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.

  • Our stay at Morter's on Bob's Lake was great! Beautiful view of the lake from the huge front windows, relaxing atmosphere inside the cottage and out and Marla was an extremely friendly & helpful host. We'd definitely come back again!

  • We were nine friends that stayed at The Eagle for a week and we loved it. The house is lovely and equipped with everything one might need and we made good use of the ice cream maker and had bbq for lunch and dinner every day. You can jump into the surprisingly warm water directly from the front of the house or head a few meters over to the dock. There are plenty of toys (paddle board, kayaks etc.) free to use, you can rent boats (we had a fishing boat and a pontoon for the weekends) and at night you can sit at the fire pit and make s'mores. We were sad to leave and want to come back.
    More and better photos can be found if you search for bobs lake cottages!

  • We stayed in the top unit of the duplex on Bob's Lake and it was absolutely beautiful! The view of the lake was incredible, the cottage very comfortable and well equipped. Bob's Lake was perfect for us - a beautiful, clean lake that was perfect for some family quality time swimming, kayaking and canoeing. We even saw some deer! We definitely hope to be back!
