The Perfect Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was absolutely beautiful with lots of nice little touches (such as complimentary fresh flowers, wine, and milk), and had stunning views over the hills and water.

The amenities were wonderful ~ nothing nicer than relaxing in the hot tub or revitalizing in the sauna after a day walking in the countryside. There was a BBQ, solar lighting, candles and satellite television included, so everything you could wish for was at hand. The 'attention to detail' was apparent from the moment we stepped through the door and we just couldn't believe how great everything was.

This break was very special to us because it was our first wedding anniversary and also a time for quiet contemplation as my husband, Davie, has advanced lung cancer and this will probably be the last holiday that we have together. We couldn't have picked a nicer place to make some nice memories of our time together.

This really is a little peace of heaven on earth.

Bijoux luxury

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in this delightful property and we 'll probably go for the hat trick before long! Shirley and her family are friendly and very accomodating. The chalet is perfect for two - totally relaxing and romantic. Combination of sauna, hot tub and perfect privacy is so rare without spending vast sums or sharing it with strangers.

Great scenery and walks as well as interesting shopping and foodie places in the area.

A genuine stress busting opportunity!

Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge was as described on the website. The location was just stunning. To be able to sit in the hot tub and look over the mountains and Loch is just a wonderful experience. The layout was as expected. The Lodge was immaculate when we arrived and the Owner had left fresh flowers and a bottle a wine in the fridge. What a personal touch. We had been in the Lodge for 10 minutes when the Owner arrived to explain how to operate the sauna and hot tub. Excellent customer service. Its all the personal touches that made our stay extra special. Beautiful bedlinen, ample cutlery and crockery, underfloor heating, cushions on the sofa, outdoor seating, ornaments to make it homely and general cleanliness. The Lodge is maintained to a very high standard.

We would most definitely recommend the Lodge although we should really keep it our closely guarded secret.

Due to the time of year we visited we found all local attractions to be closed. Although this was the case it didnt detract from the overall holiday experience.

We visited The Kenmore Inn for lunch and the portion sizes were excellent. The Co-op in Aberfeldy has everything that you could possibly need for a break.

We had a truly amazing and chilled out honeymoon at the Lodge and cant wait to go back for out 1st Wedding Anniversary.

A great big thank you to the Owners for their amazing hospitality.

lovely relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

\had a very relaxing week at the cabin, was welcomed by Shirley and Doug with a nice, chilled bottle of wine and a bunch of flowers. The cabin was perfect, warm and homely, couldn't fault a thing. Would recommend for a romantic getaway, the hottub and sauna are fantastic!

My partner and I were looking for a romantic break and this appeared to tick all the boxes. We arrived late afternoon on Sunday and the initial appearance was very good. The information stated that the host would greet us and introduce us to the facilities at 5 pm however it was not until my partner bumped into the host in the garden and introduced herself and asked when somebody would visit that it prompted the hosts to come up to the cabin. We were impressed with the facilities however was told that we would not be able to use the hot tub until after 8, when it had reached the appropriate temperature. We were also told that we could use a private beach at the bottom of the garden and across the road however this was unaccessible due to overgrown grass and nettles and a steep decline that consisted of unstable rocks.

When it came to preparing a meal, we discovered that we would have to wash the crockery and cutlery as the previous guests had not cleaned them sufficiently.

We found the bed to be very uncomfortable and therefore didn't get a comfortable night's sleep.

Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to a family accident which resulted in us having to return home after the second night. The hosts had gone away themselves therefore we explained the situation to their extended family who informed us that someone would be in touch to discuss our premature departure. We assumed that due to circumstances that were beyond our control, and as a good will gesture, this meant that we would receive some kind of refund for the loss of a further five nights accommodation. This was not the case and we only received the damage deposit.

Despite this, the cabin itself was very nice and situated in a picturesque and peaceful location. The hosts had left wine in the fridge and flowers which was a nice gesture. When we were able to use the hot tub, it was very relaxing and the sauna was a nice luxury.
