  • Incredible accomodation for a large group. Plenty of sleeping and entertainment options. Campfires, basketball court, games in the main house and some quiet places to just watch the view. The hot tub is a highlight, big dock to jump off and plenty of water toys. There are lots of stairs to get up to the house, but it’s worth it for the views alone. Marla was a great host and the local staff were very helpful with firewood and local knowledge. We look forward to spending more time there one day.

  • Words and photos don’t do this place justice. Clean, beautiful and comfortable. Not to mention the awesome hot tub and ping pong table! The location is perfect if you’re looking for a spot between Toronto and Montreal. The hosts were incredibly responsive and helpful before and during our stay. Thank you Marla and Sherri!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • We had a great experience at bobs cottages. We had the eagles nest cottage and we enjoyed it very much!

    We even had an issue with the fridge they brought us a brand new fridge.

    We rented a boat as well with great rates!

    I would recommend Marla to anyone looking for great cottages!
