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!

Great house, lots of room to breathe

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this good-sized cabin, it was well-laid out, clean and had lots of amenities. Everything one could wish for. The owners were friendly, accomodating and helpful. Beds very comfortable! Fewer decorations would make more room for guests' things and cabin could use some reading/floor lamps.

Great place to gather and celebrate my son's graduation from college!

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin, all the amenities needed to house and feed 15. Our party was mostly indoors due to weather, but there was plenty of room for about 25 people. Lots of stairs, so not ideal for older adults. Lisa was great to work with. I highly recommend this cabin!

Amazing spot for family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa’s home was the perfect place for our family and friends to connect during my wife’s graduation from University of Iowa. We were only a 20 minute drive from campus, and it was amazing to enjoy the great house in the woods, fire pit, trail to the lake, and so much more. The town of Solon is only 4 miles away, and that really helped out with last-minute grocery runs. The Salt Fork Kitchen in Solon had impressive farm fresh to table fare as well.

We loved Lisa’s place and hope to return in the future!

Perfect destination for a family supporting our college graduate

  • 5 of 5

Located less than 30 minutes from Cedar Raljds, this was a great place for our family to hang out together while supporting graduation activities. There were eight in our group and we had plenty of room. The house could have easily accommodated more of us. Three full baths made it easy to get ready to go out. The nearby path made it easy to get to the lake. We had a bonfire one night and spent lots of time on the deck gazing at the lake. Everything was clean and homey. Highly recommend.

Good time

  • 4 of 5

Although the fishing was not the best in the snow, the cabin was great. We got to curl up in front of the fire and watch tv. It was just the r&r we needed.
