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

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!

A convenient natures escape

  • 5 of 5

Booked this house for a long weekend with my family to visit colleges in the area. This lake cabin home is conveniently located 15 min to the University of Iowa and 15 min to Cornell University making it a perfect mid-point. Lot of different areas for my boys to lounge in which was perfect and the trail down to the beach provided a nice afternoon adventure. The home is nicely stocked with pretty much everything you would need and has nice areas for entertaining numerous people. Lisa was very responsive and super nice to work with.

Beautiful property, perfect for a get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful time at Lisa's for the weekend! The home is beautifully maintained. While the weather didn't cooperate much for exploring around towards the lake, having coffee on the deck in the morning was fantastic! Lisa was fabulous to work with, very flexible and prompt on answering your questions! Can't wait to stay here again sometime and would definitely recommend to any one looking for a quiet get away!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The cabin is beautiful and has everything you need in the way of housekeeping. It is clean and has lots of personal touches that make it feel homey. There is so much to do nearby. The trail to the lake is a easy walk and the beach is expansive! We hope to be back for another stay in the future. Lisa communicated quickly and clearly any time we had a question.

Great place! Quiet, wonderful view from the large deck. Everything was just as described, very comfortable and everything worked... including the technology! Lisa, the owner went out of her way to communicate and share information. I would definitely recommend this home away!

Spacious, Quiet, Scenic, Cozy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This lakefront Lake MacBride Cabin was a perfect relaxing get away from our busy city life.

The accomodations were clean and comfortable. Plenty of space for our 5 adults that stayed. The cabin is well stocked with linens, appliances, kitchenware and etc.

The owner was very nice, personable and accommodating with our requests.

We highly recommend this cabin!
