  • 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!

  • 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 water is amazing. Kayaking on the lake was fantastic.
    The whole experience is amazing. It would be better if any of us had a boating license so we will have a little flexibility, instead we asked a lot of help from Marla.

    Meanwhile, the hosts are amazingly helpful and welcoming.

  • 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!

  • We had an incredible stay at Marla’s island compound. The basketball court was a huge hit with our group followed by a lake swim and a hot tub with a view. We loved having the pontoon boat available to do a bit of fishing. I would recommend this place to a group of friends or group of families. Will keep it on my list to return to.
