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 Solon

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!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. House is rustic and modern with a great deck that wraps around two sides of the house. We had a rainy weekend and enjoyed staying warm and cosy in the house. The kitchen had everything we needed and the washer and dryer were updated and came in handy due to the wet weekend. Plenty of showers for the crew and we enjoyed the soaking tub too.

Wonderful property and great location near the lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed going to Amana Colonies and then hanging out by the lake. The owners were easy to deal with and took good care of us.

A comfortable house for families and groups

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the house with a group of friends for a college reunion, and it was the perfect venue. Lots of comfortable sleeping space, a well-supplied kitchen, grill, firepit. It was close enough to walk to the trails in Lake MacBride State Park. Highly recommended!

Property was as advertised.

Rustic but modern. Owner was extremely responsive. Location is just the right blend of seclusion and access to all the comforts of civilization.

Family of 15 and Fit Us All!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this cozy cabin for 1 week during the hottest week of the summer for a family reunion. Because we are family (9 adults, 5 children) we made it work!! The air conditioning blew cold for us, so being inside on the steamiest of days made it bearable. We enjoyed the outside patio right off the kitchen where we gathered at night to play cards and games with all of us. We even made s'mores for the kids by the fire pit! Early morning coffee with the view was superb! All within walking distance were hiking and biking trails, the beach and boat docks and fishing right off the shore. It was perfect for all our needs and we would definitely re-book this cabin again. Lisa was a very attentive owner and answered any questions I had. Thanks Lisa for having all of us!!

Great location for a get-together

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in the perfect location for a get-away with friends or family. The deck and main room are set up for an open flow, the town of Solon has a few fab restaurants (hit Salt Fork, for sure), you're close to Iowa City, Cedar Rapids and North Branch so great little excursion destinations around. Plenty of sleeping spots with lots of linens, plenty of bathrooms, quirky little cabin details inside and out. Very sweet.
