  • The cottage is so beautiful and surpassed all of our already high expectations! I cannot understate how fabulous they look—both units are superbly-finished, lack nothing in terms of amenities or comfort, and are punctuated by an incredible view and serene environment. We will be back!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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!
