About Lisa Martin

My name is Lisa Martin & my husband is Merv.

My husband works for his brother in a tire shop & I am a secretary at a private school nearby.

We both love old log cabins & peaceful settings.

It had been a dream of ours to restore a old log cabin.

We built this cabin to rent out & share with others.

The cabin was orginally from Manhiem. We numbered the logs tore it down & moved them to this property. My husband & son built the cabin & set it back up. Every minute of spare time they had they worked on it. It took around 1 year to complete. We would love you to come & stay!

Lisa Martin purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Lisa Martin chose Narvon

This is an awesome place to enjoy the woods and nature. It is peaceful & secluded. It is the perfect place for a restored old log cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the solitude & wildlife while staying at the cabin. It is a great place to unwind! Enjoy sitting on the rocking chairs on the front porch overlooking the pond. Listen to the birds, watch for the deer, in the spring listen to the peepers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

THANK YOU!!!

We were so lucky to uncover this treasure in the woods - a perfect spot full of charm & peace. Getting away to just enjoy some solitude together was made all the more memorable because of this idyllic setting. We had fun exploring the local antique shops & enjoying just exploring the countryside - roaming free, happening upon a covered bridge or a small country store, sitting on the deck in the rockers as dusk turned to night - or in the morning as we enjoyed our coffee - we loved to be so one with nature - birds chirping, frogs croaking, lightening bugs flickering. I'm sure we will come back - would love to see it in winter & take in all the natural beauty, rest & relaxation this place has to offer.

Lovely Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy with our decision to stay in this cabin! My husband and I stayed here for a few days after our wedding, and it was perfect! We loved sitting outside in the big rocking chairs overlooking the pond! The cabin is very clean and feels very cozy. Lisa was extremely accommodating and allowed us to bring our dogs and even drop off a car before check-in time so that we had a way of getting around once we were dropped off at the house after the wedding. We can't wait to return in the future and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Secluded, romantic, cozy...

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit which gives you an idea how much we enjoy this little cabin in the woods. This time was a Valentine's getaway and secluded, romantic & cozy are just a few words to describe it. We highly recommend a nearby restaurant named Emily's in Mohnton and make sure you ask Carl, the owner, why it's named Emily's! Also recommend Ranck's in Bowmanville for breakfast.

Cozy, romantic, the absolutely perfect secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this cabin justice at all! We were astonished when we pulled up to the property - it was absolutely beautiful. And my heart just sang when we walked inside. The bed was extremely comfortable, the strands of lights were the perfect touch, and it had all the modern necessities for comfort. We very much enjoyed the fireplace, and had a fire going almost the whole trip! We are absolutely looking forward to our next stay!

LOVE...LOVE...LOVE IT!

  • 5 of 5

It was a super place to stay... the rustic charm was both inside and out and was completely what we needed. The pond in the front gave opportunity to walk and enjoy the outside. And for us the weather was perfect even in the middle of January after some very sub-freezing temps. Every last detail was attended to with rocking chairs on the front porch to the perfect lighting inside. There were primitive cupboards hiding the necessities of life these days. The extra touches were special and were so appreciated!

Location

There are 3 mailboxes at the end of the driveway. The one mailbox has a green 1070 sign on it. Come back the lane until you get to the y & stay right into the cabin parking lot on the right side of the driveway (after the split rail fence)
