What Guests Have to Say About The Great House
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!Kayla 1/03/2020
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
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!Aalia 11/03/2019
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.
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 responsiveSandrine 9/22/2019
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.Lynda 9/11/2019
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 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.
Incredible accomodation for a large group. Plenty of sleeping and entertainment options. Campfires, basketball court, games in the main house and some quiet places to just watch the view. The hot tub is a highlight, big dock to jump off and plenty of water toys. There are lots of stairs to get up to the house, but it’s worth it for the views alone. Marla was a great host and the local staff were very helpful with firewood and local knowledge. We look forward to spending more time there one day.Bill 8/16/2019
