  • 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.

  • Everything was so amazing! We are already counting the days until we return! The great house is exactly that great! It has everything you could possibly need, even an ice cream maker which we used every night. Martha and Sheri were the sweetest hosts and made sure we had everything we needed including eggs which we had forgotten at the grocery store! No better to way to ring in the new year then in your own private hot tub with champagne & fireworks. Thanks for everything ladies!

  • Bobs lake cottage is simply amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. The cottage is big enough to accommodate a large group; there are many bedrooms/beds/washrooms and space. This means everyone can be comfortable together and you can equally find individual peaceful moments. It is beautiful + peaceful & Marla is amazing! Extremely helpful and responsive

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • All in all everything was great but, we did have a few issues that our group was not impressed with!
    I will start with the good. The place itself was very nice, clean, and the a/c works great! The pictures are correct. The balcony and bbq are a great combo if you get the upstairs like we did. The water was great and the firepit was ok, needs to be bigger.

    The bad. So I hope every morning bright and early that you enjoy being woken up by the ridiculous yappy dog of the owners. The last thing we wanted to hear on our vacation! We both brought our dogs and not once did they sit out side and do stuff like that.
    So we rented a boat from Larry which was cool and all, but right when we went to take it out we were met by another cottage renter that had also booked the same boat. Now poor Larry and his other buddy have no idea what's going on because someone else took off and didn't leave the books. makes sense right? No! Not at all. So after a half hour of dicking around and 2 boats later, I had to bail out the 'new boat', fun times!

    I'll leave it at!
    All in all nice place, but piss poor management!!

  • Our stay at Morter's on Bob's Lake was great! Beautiful view of the lake from the huge front windows, relaxing atmosphere inside the cottage and out and Marla was an extremely friendly & helpful host. We'd definitely come back again!

  • This is my second time back at the bobs lake cottages! The weather was a little chilly but we enjoyed the beautiful fireplace they had inside the little house.

    The communication was precise and on time. The amenities are complete so you basically need to bring your food and you’re set!

    Nothing beats the view from these cottages!

    Would come back here any day!

    Thank you for a great time.
