    • “Sehr schöne Lodge im Blockhaus-Stil”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Die Acorn Lodge ist einfach grossartig. Das ganze Ambiente stimmt. Besonders klasse sind die wohl handgemachten Innentüren und Betten. Einziger Kritikpunkt am Haus selbst ist dr etwas ungepflegte Aussenbereich um das Haus herum. Da könnte man was dran machen. Es gibt zwei Schlafzimmer, eines davon mit einem grossen Doppelbett, das andere mit zwei Stockbetten, die auch für Erwachsene geeignet sind. Die Bäder sind sehr modern eingerichtet. Das Wohnzimmer ist sehr bequem und gut ausgestattet. Es gibt sogar DVDs (mit vielen Kinderfilmen), so dass man sich bei regnerischem Wetter oder nach einem anstrengenden Outdoor-Tag gerne auch mal auf der Couch ausstrecken und gemütlich einen Film schauen kannst. Die Küche ist ebenfalls sehr gut ausgestattet. Nur ein Salatsieb oder ein Sieb im allgemeinen fehlt. Es ist sogar eine Spülmaschine vorhanden. Der Kühlschrank ist der Kracher! Einfach mal überraschen lassen :-)”

    • “Spent the February school holiday here. This lodge certainly has the 'wow factor'. I was surprised to find that we had our very own natural waterfall which I had no previous knowledge of but the sound of the rushing water was very therapeutic indeed. Upon arrival we were greated by a gift of traditional Scottish shortbread and the essentials for making a hot drink which I thought was a very thoughtful gesture. The lodge is extremely well equipped and well kempt. They also provide you with a very comprehensive 'where to go' and 'what to do' file which came in very handy as a lot of places we had planned to visit were shut until March which was a little disappointing but unavoidable due to the season. The lodge itself is in an ideal location, within walking distance to the town but set back far enough to also enjoy the peace and quiet. It's also set high enough on a hill to give you the most breathtaking views of Fort William and the porch allows you to enjoy the view whatever the weather. They really have thought if everything at Acorn Lodge. Thank you for the great holiday!”

    • “Wonderful lodge, great views and extremly comfortable”

    • “We spent a really wonderful week at Acorn Lodge. The Lodge is in a great location very close to the centre of Fort William but it feels like you are out in the woods and the views from the balcony over Loch Linnhe are just amazing. We knew the Lodge was going to be something special as soon as we walked over to the bridge to get to it. The Lodge looks beautiful from the outside and is just as nice inside. The open plan living area is really comfortable and the two bedrooms with their bespoke wood made beds were also really nice. Just to really complete a wonderful holiday we were sitting out on the balcony on our last night at the lodge and two pine-martins appeared on the hill side next to the lodge looking for food. We would definitely recommend acorn lodge and will be going back there ourselves.”

    • “The décor was lovely, the kitchen was well equipped, the bed was comfortable and the sauna was 'top-notch.' The log cabin felt secluded and it was nice being surrounded by woods.”

    Mrs Rielly, Kilwinning, November 2015

    • “The whole scenery of the house was magnificent. It felt like being in the middle of nature, but the centre of the town is only 10 minutes away by foot. In the house, you can feel that the owner made it and decorated it with love.”

    Mr Hackmann-gons, Zaandam, July 2015

    • “The cottage was fantastic with great views.”

    Mrs Maddison, Durham, July 2015

    • “The Lodge itself was excellent and well placed for the town, with great views of the Loch.”

    Mr Wilde, Billingham, June 2015

    • “The Lodge was outstanding, it felt like you were in the middle of nowhere yet it was a 10 minute walk to all amenities. We'll definitely return!”

    Mrs Underwood, Ayr, April 2015

    • “A characterful property with comfortable bed and lovely views. The location felt rural but was central.”

    Ms Young, Selby, March 2015

    • “The lodge was even better than we had hoped. Highly recommended.”

    Mr Pointon, Burnley, December 2014

    • “The Lodge is ideal in every way - fantastic quality, positioning and exactly what we were looking for. It is ideally located for travel and shopping but slightly off the main route which allowed us to feel as though we were totally isolated. We spent many nights snuggled together on the couch, sharing a bottle of wine, reflecting on the day’s activities, all ending with a sauna in the wet room to soothe our aching muscles. We also had the joy of watching the Pine Martens who visited the Lodge nightly to feed. Complete bliss.”

    Mrs Swales, Guisborough, November 2014

    • “We loved the proximity of being close to restaurants/bars so that we could walk in the evening. And so much wildlife was seen by us except for the pine martins but they did enjoy our peanut butter sandwiches. This is a lovely, homely cottage to stay in with all amenities.”

    Mr Richardson, Glossop, September 2014

    • “I would recommend this venue to a was delightful.”

    Adamson, Spennymoor, September 2014

    • “Loved the beautifully built lodge with the amazing woodwork! Fantastic location for visiting local tourist attractions. The stunning setting meant we were able to see lots of wildlife right at our lodge. We were so happy to see the deer in front of our lodge but most especially, feeding the pine martens each evening was amazing. Have been able to get lots of fantastic photos and came home with wonderful memories.”

    Mrs Galvin, Pontefract, August 2014

    • “The property was excellent along with the location to explore the Highlands.”
