  • "Very clean and comfortable lodge in a great location with everything we needed for our stay."

    Would perhaps benefit from a small dustpan and brush and some form of non slip mat for the bath as it is very slippery when taking a shower. Great walks on the doorstep for our dog which he enjoyed very much. Thank you for a very enjoyable visit, would recommend.

  • "We had a fantastic time and have already recommended it to friends!"

    The only thing was the fridge freezer was a tiny bit small but, with the design of the kitchen, this couldn’t have been helped! We would definitely come back!

  • "We had an excellent holiday."

    Couldn't fault the lodge. Felt closer to nature. It felt very private. Lovely walks around the forest. We look forward to coming back.

  • "Eagle lodge is a lovely log cabin, set in a quiet location-(not the easiest to find), and has a fantastic forest to get lost in, my teenagers and dogs just loved it."

    Strathpeffer is in a central location to visit east or west coast. We had never been up North-East highlands before and drove up to John O'Groats and Dunnet head, stopping in a lovely tea shop on route. Another day, we went to Ullapool, which is within easy reach.

  • "The directions to the the location were frankly useless."

    Everyone arriving at the site at the same time seemed to experience the same difficulties as the directions were over-complicated. The lodge was very well equipped and very comfortable and could not be faulted. I think the experience could though be enhanced by having some personal interaction with someone on site this avoiding some initial difficulties with the television, keys and locks etc. Otherwise, I great experience.

  • "The duvet in the double room is filthy."

    I was horrified when I removed the cover at the end of our stay. Other than that, the lodge is perfect, better than your listing indicates. We had a great week with 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Lots of space for everyone to relax.

    Dear Mrs Yule, Many thanks for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and are delighted that you felt our lodges exceeded your expectations. I have taken on board your comments about the duvet; we are very sorry that you had to find it in such an unsatisfactory condition. We are having it replaced between guests. Property Owner

  • "We had a really enjoyable stay, nice to be met with chocolates."

    The lodge is one of six lodges on the site, I thought would be isolated but still had privacy. Sofa and carpets felt a little dated but nothing wrong with either just personal preference. Was great having a washing machine and tumble dryer on last night we managed to get half our clothes clean, takes the pressure off when got home. Only major improvement is those last few directions, you do not see the lodge from the road the only indication its there is a parking space with a low level sign saying Eagle Lodge, maybe a sign from the road, two of the other lodges have signs so eagle Lodge could as well

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at the eagle lodge, i would say some clearer directions on finding the lodge would be handy as i called the caretaker (who was very helpful and friendly) as we couldn't find the lodge."

    you have to walk between two other lodges to get to it, the shared carpark is the only indication you are in the correct place. The lodge itself is lovely, we were there as a group of 4 plus two dogs and had ample space. Kitchen well stocked with utensils and crockery. The location is great, not far from some lovely walks and only an hour or so from lots of bigger towns, we used it as a ‘base camp’ for doing some days trips exploring some of the more northern areas such as ullapool. Would definately reccomend and would return

  • "Directions could be made easier to follow."

    Without GPS it was hard to find the road leading to the cabin coming from the Contin road. No signs from car park for the woods to say what road to take

    Many thanks for your feedback and we are very sorry that you found it so tricky to find us. We have asked Sykes to ensure that future customers get the direction which are on our website, which include local landmarks and should make it easier to find the lodges. Property Owner

    It was just amazing even the 2 x dogs where chilled and considering one is only 11 months old that is saying something. The only thing it was a bit annoying was the satellite dish kept dropping the signal so didn't get a lot of channels not a great hardship and we did leave a comment in the book. Would definitely recommend it as I have done for your company many times really fab time felt as if we had a holiday.

  • "No problem with our booking through Sykes - my only constructive criticisms would be that the website could be a little bit clearer with the description."

    The photo and description of ample parking gives the impression that parking is directly outside the lodge, which would have been ideal for us as my grandfather has to have a wheelchair as he has limited mobility and also has a portable oxygen unit, however the parking was actually a little way from our lodge down a gravel path which was quite awkward as the wheels sank into the gravel but we managed, it just wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. The other thing we found a little confusing was that the website stated our power was included in our price, however in the information pack inside the lodge, there was a long explanation about electricity and how to complete a form with the meter readings at the start and end of your stay and who to make a cheque payable to. I actually found the form in a cupboard and checked my booking details several times to make sure I hadn't misunderstood anything. Although I had satisfied myself that we had 'pre-paid' for our power I was very conscious of this for the duration of our stay which made me slightly unsettled throughout our stay. As a say nothing but some clearer instructions would resolve for anyone else staying here and now I know the location of each lodge I would just book one with parking directly outside.

About the location


Inverness 20 miles.

Often compared to a Bavarian Mountain resort, the picturesque spa village of Strathpeffer owes its growth to the discovery of water springs during the 1700s, and was declared in 1819 to be the healthiest drinking water in Britain! The original Spa Pavilion has been magnificently restored after a period of disuse and now serves as a venue for a variety of events, including concerts, dances, dramas and exhibitions. The former Victorian railway station, which in times past brought many visitors from near and far, has now been beautifully restored to house craft workers and their shops, and is also home to the Highland Museum of Childhood. Visit the restored Pump house (also a Tourist Information point), take a walk along a forest track, or enjoy the views from the nearby pictish hill fort at Knockfarrel. Whatever you decide there's plenty on offer for all the family.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Off-season
