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.

Wonderful Bachelorette Weekend
We rented this cabin for my daughter’s bachelorette weekend. We had 14 people staying and it accommodates all of us perfectly. There were plenty of beds to sleep in and the kitchen and den were perfect. So much fun and a truly beautiful cabin. Right by the lake and close to Solon, North Liberty, and Iowa City. We can’t say enough about our stay. It was an amazing weekend full of memories!
Wonderful cabin in a peaceful area. Perfect for us.
Such a great cabin and so thoughtfully hosted. With 4 young kids the two televisions and wifi were great when the weather didn't treat us well. The cabin is well furnished with plenty of beds, futons, etc.. Bathrooms are clean and modern. The state park is nearby and Solon has everything you need (grocery store, pizza restaurant, bar). Check out the beer and food in the Big Grove Brewery.
We were very impressed with the cabin. Highly recommended.
We had a great time together in this cottage. Everyone 13-70 years was glad to be there.
The House was clean, well organized, and ideally located 1 mile from the park and beach. Everything worked, and Lisa was very helpful and welcoming. We routinely had deer visit the yard. If I had to choose something to suggest, perhaps fewer decor items for a more open feel. I would stay again, and I hope we do! Perfect for extended family get together.
Charming cabin near the lakes - the owner was very helpful in making our stay a nice one.
Beautiful setting with many deer and wild turkeys(?)
Great place to stay while in Iowa!
Great property, clean and charming. Great location to lake.
Very cozy. Seems like a great winter spot as well. Loved seeing the deer and walking to the lake. Clean and charming.
Perfect Family Vacation - hoping to come back in a couple years.
My family of 9 adults and 2 kids (2 and 4) spent 5 nights at the Lake MacBride Cabin in July. My adult daughters live in Des Moines, Davenport, Chicago and one by us in the Twin City area. We chose this cabin for central location but were pleasantly surprised by how many things there were to do here.
The cabin itself was set up so the family with 2 kids could enjoy the upstairs suite, my husband and I (and 4 year old granddaughter most nights) enjoyed the king bed on the main floor, and the rest of the young adults shared the lower level. Since the average temp that weekend was 93 degrees, we were very impressed how the air conditioning kept us very comfortable, and the 3 large bathrooms were definitely a plus. The deck was large enough for all us to enjoy our evening outdoors. The kids loved the playhouse!
Everything was very clean and well stocked with towels, utensils, etc. and a washer and dryer.
We enjoyed the public beach daily (only a mile away), rented a pontoon one day and a speed boat with skis one afternoon. We spent a few hours with the kids down at the beach at the end of the wooded path one day. We saw a few bunnies and even a deer in our back yard. We also took advantage of the bike trail, a few of the parks for the kids, the Iowa City Children's Museum only 15 minutes away, the Amana Colonies (20 minutes away) and loved the local brewery in Solon (5 miles away) a couple times. We were even impressed with the great participation in the local Catholic Church in Solon.
We hope to return to this beautiful spot again. The owners were great to work with.
