  • I booked this cottage for myself, my son, my mom and sisters. It was perfect for our needs.

    The lake is gorgeous, accessible and very nice to swim in. The cottage comes with lots of water activities included (kayak, canoe, paddle boat).

    It’s also very close to Westport (20 min) which makes a fun little half day trip :) We did it, and it was nice to get out for a bit.

    The cottage is part of a larger cottage resort. They have different accommodations for large groups which is something I’ll look into the future. The larger house on the property has an even nicer private beach!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Awesome, awesome, awesome location! The lake is fairly quiet and secluded. The entire time we felt like we had a private lake to ourselves.

    The accommodations also provide access to some great water toys (canoe, kayak, and paddle boards). The space was clean, comfortable, and cozy.

    I would recommend this spot to anyone who’s looking for a nice cottage getaway!

  • We had a family gathering at the cottage and it worked out perfectly for the 9 of us. Great kitchen, good bathrooms, great pontoon boat...very comfortable. Marla was right next door if needed but allowed us our privacy. The cottage and the boat were perfect for a very special family weekend. Thanks Marla, we will be back!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.
