  • 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!

  • Marla and Larry were fantastic hosts! From check in to check out we wanted for nothing. The cottage was the perfect combination of luxury and cottage life. Kitchen was well equipped for fabulous meals and don't forget to bring the cream to finish those meals off with your own homemade ice cream!!! (Ice cream machines in the units)
    The abundance of lake toys (kayaks, canoes and paddle boards) and life jackets make for a great day of endless entertainment by the lake. As well as a wonderful park/treehouse that is sure to have even the big kids wondering...can I???lol
    Bobs Lake Cottages is the perfect place to bring a young family. And very pet friendly! Can't wait to be back!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It's hard to say whether the home was more amazing or the host was. Marla was incredible the entire time we were there and made sure we were taken care of in every single way possible. The property was more of a beautiful lake home than it was a cottage, but the layout made it simple to have our big group of 15 stay very comfortably. The grounds were in immaculate condition, like the rest of the house and the lake is absolutely perfect. We brought our boat even though Marla offers a wide selection of boats to rent and spent a lot of time on the water which made our weekend one we wont forget. There is not one thing that was lacking from this place and we will be back for sure as soon and as often as we can.

  • 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 spent a fantastic long weekend at this cottage over Labour Day, and both of us agreed - even though it was quite rainy and cool most of the weekend, it was one of the best weekends we'd had all summer.

    The cottage itself is picture-perfect. Bright, clean and very homey feeling. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The highlight is definitely the view of the lake from the living room - floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake. The indoor fireplace make it incredibly cozy on cooler nights. The front deck offers more spectacular views, and there's a firepit right off to the side, where you can enjoy a campfire at the same times as the beautiful views of the lake.

    With canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, water toys, floating docks, etc, available to you, you can really make the most of your time. The lake is generally quite calm, great for those just learning to kayak or canoe, and the swimming is excellent (even in the rain).

    Finally, Marla was such a warm, accommodating host - ensured we had everything we needed, and went over and above to ensure we had a wonderful time. Our only regret is that we only discovered this place at the end of the summer - we can't wait to return.

  • 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.
