    Being terrible reviewers we actually stayed in October 2017 but have not long created our account. Though it must be testament to a place to still want to review it over two years on! Spruce Lodge is an absolutely beautiful cabin situated just on the edge of Blackmuir Woods in the lovely Strathpfeffer. On a car free holiday we found it extremely easy to make it from Inverness Airport to the lodge door, with only a short walk along a woodland road the most taxing part of the journey. Our greeting was extremely friendly and we immediately felt at home. We were also greeted by a sweet loaf of bread, delicious peach melba jam and a Madeira cake. All of which we have tried and failed to relive at home. They could be found at the Deli in the Square at the time and frankly we should have stocked up! The lodge itself was beautiful. Extremely cosy in style and decor, with the most comfortable sofa. All the appliances worked perfectly, we weren't short or without anything we needed and Tesco delivers so had we not wanted to leave at all we would have been all set! We got a great night's sleep every night throughout our week stay, and to wake up to birds on the feeders and a red squirrel was such a treat. The lodge is perfectly situated for many walks..as ours was a walking holiday this was handy-dandy indeed. We haven't been able to make it back yet but we wouldn't consider staying elsewhere. We talk about our stay frequently with the fondest memories.

About the location

STRATHPEFFER

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.
