The Story of the Cottages

Your New Neighbors

The Cottages at Martin Lake is run by Anna and Todd, a husband-wife team dedicated to creating a relaxed and harmonious home. They are motivated by a passion to serve and have created the Cottages to share their lovely lakeside property with others. 

Inspired by Dad

The Cottages at Martin Lake has a story. It’s a story about a girl and her dad. Anna’s father bought a home and property on Martin Lake after his wife passed away. He saw it as a place to keep on living. He could fish and duck hunt or sit on the deck and watch the birds. He enjoyed boating on the lake and it was a great place for family picnics! As the years passed, it was too much house for him and he felt he had to sell it. He really hated to do that. Anna decided to buy it and keep it in the family. Knowing how much her dad enjoyed living on Martin Lake, she thought that other active seniors would too. She decided to build a home on the property for other seniors to enjoy; a place they would want to live and a place their families would want to visit – just like her family did.

Anna designed the home for optimal enjoyment and offers services to create an environment that is fulfilling and enjoyable.

Our Scales

When you visit, you’ll notice we have lovely, old scales on display throughout the home. To us the scales represent Justice, Order, Balance, and Integrity.
The Lord detests the use of dishonest scales but He delights in accurate weights.  Proverbs 11:1
The scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love.
