  • "Lovely lodge in a quiet location amazing for couples."

    Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a romantic and relaxing get away.

  • "The log cabin was absolutely perfect."

    The location is exceptional, surrounded by beautiful scenery. The log cabin itself had everything we needed and was even more cosy than I expected, with the hot tub located just steps from the cabin, I didn't want to leave. Gordon was on hand to help with advice on places to visit and couldn't have been more helpful. We will definetly be returning to this idyllic cabin.

    He cannot do enough for you without being overbearing. Will definitely be booking this again as me and my partner loved our time away.

  • "The outside space is fab."

    But inside needs some updating. Stains on mattress cover and duvet. Too much clutter - it sleeps 2 and there were 4 frying pans and lost count of pots at 6. Not a matching glass and dishes piled in cupboard. I feel sorry for the cleaner of this property as must be a nightmare to clean. Too much stuff books, CDs candle holders - I thought this all should be removed because of COVD? Gordon was nice and had a nice welcome. This property needs updated and thoroughly cleaned.

  • "Gordon is a lovely chap."

    All the grounds are beautiful, love all the nature, wildlife and seclusion. The cabin itself is 'rough around the edges', but honestly that did nothing but add to the whole experience. Sometimes places can go overboard trying to make things too comfortable, but the cabin being just the way it is really adds quaintness, and character to every moment spent there. Any expansion to the cabin I believe should be kept within the parameters already set, it really is lovely.

  • "The cabin is petite, but well equipped - we were very happy there for the week."

    Whilst we were there it was warm enough to sit out to eat which helped: if it had been colder, a foldaway table and chairs inside would have been handy - thought the lap trays were great. Cabin is really cosy inside. Loved the hot tub, and was visited by nuthatches and tree creepers running up the canopy supports and nearby trees! The pond and grounds are lovely - we saw red squirrels, and we think we were visited by the pine marten at night. Others have noted that its actually quite near to a road: it is, but we were not bothered by that at all (we live in the countryside so are used to quiet) - the trees screen much of the noise and its quiet enough, especially at night. Despite being so close to the water we had nil midges (which was a relief!). Its in a great location - well connected, easy to get into Oban/ferries, and lots of beautiful places to visit in the area. Finally, the chap who keeps the grounds - and his lovely dog - were very welcoming and looked after us well.

    Location excellent for exploring the surrounding area. Exceptionally clean with friendly host who met us on arrival. The only downsides were the main road which is very close to the cabin and noisy and the squeaky bed! If you don't mind the sound of traffic, it is ideal.

  • "The log cabin although located into a wooden property is actually at proximity of a main road therefore not as quiet and remote as expected."

    As away for most of the day the noise of the road was not a total nuisance but the experience of being isolated has not been fully met.

  • "If you're looking for a true log cabin, this is the one!"

    Oban is not too far of a drive, but everything is far enough away that you are secluded, and left to it! Gordon who looks after you at check-in is very friendly and can't do enough to help, he is a credit to the place and owners, and makes himself available if there are any issues (we had none!). My wife and I were here 4 years ago and got engaged on the grounds, and we were here this week celebrating our honeymoon, we were given a complementary bottle of champagne to boot! I'm not sure what is the best feature of the log cabin, the log fire, duck pond directly outside, how cosy it is, the walk around the grounds, scenery, there are too many things to mention, juat amazing.

  • "Loved my stay at the Log Cabin."

    It was exactly what I was looking for and more. The cabin was great. Everything was nice and clean and tidy. Our host was lovely. We knew if there was a problem he would be there to fix it but did not bother us in any way. Has to be the best shower I have experienced in my time away from home. The weather was not the best but it didn't matter as the log burner was great. I would love to go back in the summer to fully experience the wild life and the scenery. Loved feeding the birds.

  • "The location of the Log Cabin and the associated gardens were delightful."

    It was a little nearer a road than expected but the traffic was very light and not a problem. There were more trees than the pictures showed which made the area very pretty though it did obscure the view of the distant mountains when the trees were in full leaf. The Log Cabin makes a lovely retreat and it is lovely to be able to walk in the grounds and go down to the river, or to walk along the path to the waterfall, or along the road and river to a more open vista with mountains and fields of lambs. If you like painting or drawing the associated house or Log Cabin is the place. You will be inspired!
