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

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.

Look at the pictures! Words cannot express the beauty of this home and area.

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!

Four of us women get together annually for a camp-out and this year decided to treat ourselves to something with indoor plumbing. What a treat! With three levels, there's room for everyone to spread out. The accommodations were lovely: clean, well-stocked with kitchen stuff and plenty of kids' toys for family get-togethers. Deer and chipmunks in view every day. Nice walk to the beach. Screened porch on the lower level, which came in handy when it rained and when the skeeters got bad on the deck. Short drive to town. Nicely secluded from the neighbors. Fishing and canoe put-in not far from the property. Rental details went smoothly and the owner was helpful. We'll be back.

PLENTY OF SPACE

  • 4 of 5
We had plenty of space -- staying here for a conference in Iowa City. Nice and private. For our group it would have been nice for the upstairs bathroom to have a shower head. And, we had a :30 drive into downtown. But, we were able to make everything work -- and planned time for the drive.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated a dad/grandpa birthday! We were selfish and had the whole place to ourselves for one night. When all our friends and family showed up the next day they were amazed. We were blessed with a beautiful early spring day and enjoyed the huge yard and deck. The owners provided a book that would answer any question you may have. The property was very clean and well maintained. This was my first experience with this web site service and was very pleased with the quick response I got on all my questions from the owners themselves.

DECEMBER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My hubby and I (from Illinois) met our friends (Nebraska) at Lake View Cabin to celebrate 30 years of marriage for both couples. This was a perfect place to relax, play games, talk, cook together and just enjoy friendship in a place that felt like home. As said by others, the cabin was clean and well stocked. We enjoyed a brisk (cold) walk to the lake the first day and had a lovely covering of snow the rest of our stay. Birds, squirrels and deer provided entertainment. Lisa was very easy to work with and it was a pleasure to enjoy her vacation home.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

We had a great time at this house! Lots of space and cute decor. We highly would recommend this place. It's about 20 minutes from Iowa City. Yellow cab does come out to the area if you are looking to get to and from IC.
