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!

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
A great place to relax and have fun. We enjoyed the lake, swimming, feeding the ducks and fish, and kayaking. It was 8 miles to the T station on our site seeing trip to Boston, 2 hrs to Cape Cod and Plymouth. Great restaurant in town, Coral Seafood, and Vin Bin for wine and cheese! The home is beautifuly decorated, and the owners very generously provide many amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorable. If we didn't live in California, it's a place we'd definitely want to visit every year!

Lakeside-lovely family-friendly reunion-ready

  • 5 of 5
The hosts and house very accommodating, one of those rentals that leaves you thinking, I could live like this! The house has a lot of natural light, with large windows overlooking a very calm and clean lake, perfect for the kayaks that the hosts leave for guests to use.
The kitchen is open and can service two areas as there are two breakfast bars, and a round table that seats about 5-6, a step away.
The very large living room has a zen feeling and ceiling windows provide glorious light and a wonderful water view!
There are 3 bedrooms but a futon turns the downstairs bedroom into accommodation for another 2 (our two kids).
If you are an avid reader, life, religion, psychology, child rearing, finding peace, making money, tourism, etc. STOP and close the favorites window! This is the place!
Boston is about an hour's drive, supermarkets and farms nearby. Try
The house is clean, we ran out of propane for the grill and the owners came to solve the matter right away!
Go on, try to find something better, I dare you.
We come every year and reunite with family in the area, this house was the perfect place, where the house was far enough from the city and close enough for the heart!

Wonderfully relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
I may have to write another review later to get more details on here for you all to see, but in a nutshell............... we had a great time here! The place was just as it was advertised. (There are areas of owners belongings kept private and the lease clearly states this, so it was not a problem.) The lake area was wonderful too, and most homes here have a bit of a slope, as does this place. This is not a problem at all, if you want to have fun, you want to have fun! We were only 2 of us, vacationing to have some quiet get away from work time, but had family come visit on weekends. This was such a neat place to be able to share the day with family we had not seen in years!
Owners were avail by phone whenever needed (local info, directions etc!) Thank you so much to Jackie and Heather. Maybe if we get up again, we can meet you both next time! These trips are not every year for us, but we will surely look to rent here again when we DO come up.

(Oh, and making reservations and getting lease items completed was really easy and all done online and by mail! easy easy easy!)

Very nice home!

  • 4 of 5
Over all, our stay was very nice. I rented the house for a week because my sister passed away and we were holding a memorial service in the town of Stow where we were raised. I had several family members all coming from out of town for the memorial service. I asked the Landlord (Jackie) if she objected to having my extended family back to the house and she said it was fine. So we combined a memorial service with a semi family reunion. The house worked perfectly and held our guests fine!

Unfortunately it rained the entire week so we were not able to enjoy the beautiful deck overlooking the water, grill, kayaks, hammock, etc.... But had the weather coorperated the trip and the house would have been just perfect.

It should be noted more clearly however that the garage and the master bedroom suite are on the ground floor and 2 BR, 1 BA, kitchen, DR, LR, and deck are on the upper floor. Not an issue, unless you have handicapped or elderly where stairs are a problem.

Jackie was a delight to deal with and I hope to rent the house again in October for my high school reunion!

Lakefront Property at its best in Marlborough

  • 5 of 5
This house has everything you can ask for. Tastefully decorated, beautifully kept up both inside and out. A hammock is available for relaxing as well as great lounge chairs on the deck. The kayaks were an extra special treat.

We took the train into Boston a couple of days (10 minute ride to train station and 40 minute train ride to downtown Boston). What a great city to tour. We also drove out to Cape Cod. Took about 2 hours but well worth the time. Spent the whole day out there and took in lots of sites including the wonderful beach.

The house is fabulous and the price is right! I highly recommend this place and would definitely come back if ever going to the Boston area in the future.
