About Lisa Martin-Eatinger

I grew up in Iowa near here and enjoyed the family picnics at the state park. My extended family is still in the area! We now live in downtown Chicago, and this retreat is a great escape from our hectic lives.

Lisa Martin-Eatinger purchased this house in 2011

Why Lisa Martin-Eatinger chose Iowa City

My family has been enjoying Lake MacBride since it first opened. My grandmother told me about her experiences growing up and enjoying the lake so she made sure to bring her children. My mother has great stories of Lake MacBride and the Coralville Reservoir and she made sure to bring me and my brothers! Now a fourth generation, my own daughters, are growing up with peace and tranquility because of this fabulous property.

What makes this house unique

We are next to cross-country ski and snowmobile trails!

Retreat for nature lovers

  • 5 of 5

Everything the guidelines stated was accurate and true. The owner was very prompt in responding to questions and I would definitely recommend this home as a wonderful get away and especially if you love nature in the fall. Visited the University and ate at several downtown restaurants. All very good. Thanks for the experience.

Amazing Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend staying at this property. Our group consisted of 6 adults, 3 little boys, and a dog. We had plenty of room to spread out and can't wait to plan our trip next year. This is a great place for families to go stay. Our boys loved the playhouse and swing. The grassy area with the fire pit was a big hit with our group. Extremely convenient that the owners provide firewood! Iowa City is close enough to take in a football game and Solon is very close to pick up any last minute items. Great location!! The property itself was very clean. Felt like we were staying at a friend's house. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the dishes, appliances, and everything we needed to complete our weekend. The big tub was great for the little boys. So happy we selected this property to share an extended weekend with family. It was great!

Comfortable and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Cabin is about 20-25 minutes from Iowa City, but an easy drive. Pretty setting, comfortable deck. 1/2 mile from state park with trails, lake, boat rentals. Owner was very easy to contact. Path to lake from cabin was flooded due to too much rain the few weeks before our visit, but with state park so near we canoed there. Nice refrigerator, washer, dryer, clean bathrooms, comfy beds, AC. Basement was very comfortable to watch tv or movie at night. Thanks for the hospitality!

Beautiful cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with everything included!! We loved our stay there! When you're sitting outside on the deck, the view of the lake was very nice/peaceful! We saw deer and wild turkey too! The cabin is decorated so nicely!! One night it was even cool enough to have the fireplace lit. It was so cozy and romantic! If you want to bike, go on the trails just about 2 miles away from the cabin. We got to spend lots of time enjoying all of the natural resources surrounding us! It was just a beautiful place!

Critters Galore

  • 3 of 5

We 3 sisters took a 4 night stay at this cabin. The deer, chipmunks, rabbits, raccoons and birds were wonderful to watch. The cottage could have been better if it hadn't been quite so full of furniture, especially the downstairs where there were lots of futons....but that wasn't really a problem. The problem we had was having to wash things off before we could eat off of the tables and the porch really needed sweeping. We didn't squabble about the "cleaning charge" but expected the cabin to be clean when we came and really didn't want to do the cleaning AND still pay the fee! We really couldn't unpack our suitcases as the drawers and closets were full. All in all, we had a fine vacation but were slightly disappointed by the cabin's cleanliness.

Owner's Response: After a storm rolls through, we cannot guarantee the deck and porch will be clean. We get a lot of tree debris due to our location. I am replacing the old table cover hoping this helps. Also, if anyone wishes to use our dressers, the rental agreement states to let us know ahead of time. We aim to please of course!
