“First lodge experience...AMAZING!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We searched many, many lodges to find the perfect one and Birchwood did not disappoint. We wanted a lodge that had a fair-sized, covered hot tub and the fact that it had wifi and Sky TV - Birchwood won us over. Some of the other lodges appear to be bigger/fancier, but we are so glad we didn't chose another, as Birchwood is just perfect!

The pictures on the website do not do it justice and the dining area is much bigger than the pictures make it appear. I was quite surprised the bedroom was not upstairs - however - I am grateful for this! The bathroom is a fantastic layout, a double shower and the sauna being a bonus. The hot tub was amazing too, the instructions being very easy to follow. It is very large and spacious, and you are well sheltered from the elements. The cover is heavy, but at least our shoulders had a good workout ;) The little beach area is so wonderful, in Summer it would be fabulous to sit down there, and even go out on the canoes. We didn't have a problem with the wifi whatsoever though we couldn't get the Sonos system to work out at the hot tub area - good chance it was user error though, it worked in the house just fine.

The location is perfect - the lodge is very private, quiet and secluded. The instructions on how to get there were great and thankfully we didn't drive past the lodge first time.

Overall, our future lodge breaks will definitely be at Birchwood. Ali thinks of everything, even a bottle of wine on arrival and a pint of milk in the fridge. Our recommendation was so convincing that my sister and future brother-in-law have decided to spend their honeymoon at Birchwood!

Thanks very much for your lovely review - I agree, the pictures don't do the Lodge justice, but I'm no photographer!!

I'm sorry you couldn't get the Sonos to work out at the Hot Tub - I was up there on Friday and had it working in all areas, so I'm not sure what was up there.

The beach is fantastic in the summer - very sheltered and the Loch is a terrific wine/beer cooler! :o)

I'm glad you enjoyed it and I look forward to welcoming you back. Ali

“Secluded peaceful location with stunning views, bliss”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This was our first stay in a lodge, we felt 100% at home and was given 100% privacy we could not have asked for more from our stay in the lodge! we was made to feel very welcome and even managed to add an extra nights stay at short notice! the wine and shortbread were well received and a lovely touch , the lodge itself was perfect and the nearby towns had plenty to do and see! the scenery was absolutely stunning at this time of year we definitely hope to stay again.

Thanks very much for your lovely review. I was so please that you managed to get home in time to come up a night early - Loch Tay certainly deserves at least three nights to appreciate it. I hope to welcome you back again. Thanks, Ali

“Best Lodge i have ever stayed at!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

One word - Incredible!
Hot tub and outside eating area are covered which is essential for Scottish weather. Inside the lodge itself was always the perfect temperature and with a sauna, dual showers, underfloor heating and sky tv - you couldn't ask for more. The view to the loch was breathtaking and the nearby village of Kenmore had everything you could need for your stay plus gorgeous walks along the riverbanks and through the village itself.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be coming back again at the earliest opportunity!

“amazing place to chill”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Amazing cabin, sauna, hot tub, even the bed. Cabin is cosy, very clean and has everything you need, bottle of wine and milk a lovely touch.
Clear instructions how to get there, get keys.
Location is truly beautiful, one of the most stunning places to stay in Scotland, lots to see, walking and in the car, return to beautiful cabin for lush sauna and hot tub taking in the lovely view.
Can not recommend this location and cabin enough.

“Fan-Tay-stic”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This beautiful property was a fabulous place for a short break. The scenery was stunning, helped by beautiful Scottish October sunshine, the canoes were great fun (even for semi beginners) and the Loch so close to the lodge that it was great to sit out next to it with a bottle of wine (two) and ten jumpers. The lodge itself had everything you would need and I had to use the fishing net to get my husband OUT of the hot tub. Cosy and cute. The lodge that is.

Thanks for your lovely review - and thanks so much for posting the lovely photo on facebook, you would hardly believe it is October. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, sitting down at the Loch with a bottle or two of wine is a favourite pastime of mine too, and the Loch is ideal for chilling the wine! Hope to welcome you back in the future. Ali
