We spend 3 nights at Mas Cottage and really enjoyed the atmosphere here. Lake Toba is really quiet and there is much to discover. Lita and her sister were really nice. They pick you up if you need to and give you excellent tips to discover tuk tuk and Samosir. Clean large room with view on the lake. You can... More

Mas cottages is a very comforatable and well priced place to stay. The service is very good and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. There is a good variety of accomodation ranging from clean and comfortable to the more roomy traditional batak houses. Most of the rooms are straight next to the lake. There are scooters and bycycles... More

Arrived in the evening at Parapat and managed to make the last ferry over to Samosir Island, if you mention where your staying they will drop you off directly at your accommodation. Ferry was 15,000 Rph. Staff greeted us on the ferry & had scooters & a car to get up to Ma's Cottages. It is about 20 minutes to... More

Experienced unique, ancient, simple and clean Batak House. Good lake view especially early morning. This is a quiet and peace place. A bit far from Tomok town and Tuk Tuk town, need to take "Kereta" (motorcycle) to town.

Given the last room on the above level as we reached & check-in past 2000Hrs. The room was clean & cool despite no a/c or fan..thankfully, no mosquitoes despite lake facing..but, the toilet need repairs; only drops of water from the tap...overall, not an issue to us! For that price, our stay still worthwhile with the beautiful & stunning view... More

If you're looking for a quite place with great views and good swim, this is it! All rooms have lake view and a small terrace. The interior is simple and the beds are very comfortable. The water in the lake was clean and we swam every day. The restaurant serves good food for reasonable prices but the service could be... More

We were thrilled to stay here for three nights in the Batak house, which was extremely special. It was completely private and safe. There were no mosquitos, which we were thrilled about. The lake swimming is amazing and the walks on the island fantastic. You're near a wood carver (who has diabetes and hasn't carved for three months) and the... More

We really liked the place, it was very nice and quiet, hot showers, very nice swimming just in front, you can rent bikes, food is good etc. The only possible downside that it's a bit out of the way from TukTuk if you would like to dine out elsewhere. And you will be hearing a bit of noise from your... More
