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 great place for a girls weekend.

We had a great time at the property. The location is fantastic and it slept 10 women really well. You are the front steps of the park and five minutes from great restaurants.

Great place for family gatherings

  • 4 of 5

This fun cabin has everything one needs to stay over. Plenty of comfy bedding there for everyone, and I was worried that the futons would be uncomfortable but they were great. Having the new shower and extra bedroom was very nice to have.

Thank you and we loved the scenery and wrap around porch! Lisa is very helpful by the way.

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!
