About Jackie Woodside, Co Owner and Heather Harker, Co Owner

We are a family of three water-loving folks! We own this property and another waterfront home in the Thousand Islands in Upstate New York. We have enjoyed many great times here, as have our family, friends and guests who rent from us. We attend church locally, serve on boards in our community, play sports and enjoy downtime here at SoulHaven.

Jackie Woodside, Co Owner and Heather Harker, Co Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why Jackie Woodside, Co Owner and Heather Harker, Co Owner chose Marlborough

We fell in love with the lakefront and the great room here. Other than those two features, we have updated and renovated EVERYTHING else in the home since our purchase to make it uniquely our own.

What makes this house unique

The deck right outside the great room and the patio down by the waterfront are lovely spots to read and soak in some sun! The roman arc hammock is a must for relaxation and afternoon naps too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Heather and Jackie,



I just wanted to say how wonderful it was to stay at SoulHaven!



It was an incredibly fulfilling experience. Your attention to décor, the condition of the property and the ambiance were just what we were after.



We could not have made a better choice. Your home was instrumental in a very successful, fulfilling vacation.



We became completely enamored with the beauty of the lake, the soft breeze, your tasteful and modern decor

and the overall tranquility. Thank you!

Peace and quite, serene and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could hope for in a rental. Marlborough was a great town and the house was in a quiet neighborhood. The house had everything you could possibly imagine to make the stay easy and fun. Communication with Jackie was great every need was met, and expectations were far exceeded. The morning views of the lake were spectacular, Book selection was great, and the kitchen very well stocked, high end appliances, pots pans etc. If you're looking for a great location to explore Massachusetts or just sit on the deck and listen to the sound birds in tranquility Soul Haven is the place.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Scott. We were very happy to hear how much you enjoyed SoulHaven and exploring the best of New England from our home. (Especially the trip to the Bruins game!). Hope you will return again for another reprieve at our lake house. Best, Jackie

We had the greatest time at the lake house! Thank you so much.

  • 5 of 5

What is not to love here… The house is gorgeous, we spent many hours playing games in the living room overlooking the beautiful lake, we kayaked all around, fished off the dock, bass and bluegill were practically jumping on the hooks, had barbecues on the deck and some delicious dinners in town... we would definitely love to come back in the future.

We had a wonderful time with my family at Soulhaven! It was our first experience renting a home for vacation and it was more than we expected! The lakefront property gave us not just a beautiful view, but my children enjoyed so much the water, kayacks and fishing!!! And the neighborhood is very nice and quiet, just the righ place to enjoy a peaceful and wonderful family vacation!!! Everything you need is there and it was very well organized.

We fully recommend this property!

Perfect stay for our entire family! May make it an annual event!

  • 5 of 5

Soul Haven was a wonderful retreat for us. We are MA residents at heart that have relocated to California. We rented this house to have a fun home base while we visited so that our friends and family could drop in and visit. Everyone had a blast, there was plenty of space, the lake was the best and the kitchen was perfect for a mom of 3. Everyone who visited over the 12 days there thought it was a great idea and hope we'll make it an annual event! Jackie was always accessible via email if we had any questions. There were plenty of nice towels and bedding to make us comfortable...and did I mention the kitchen!? Thanks for a great stay!
