Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We are regular visitors to Log House Holidays, but this was our first booking of the cabin called Moondara. This has 3 large upstairs bedrooms and one ground floor bedroom; 3 large bathrooms; a well equipped kitchen and a large airy dining area. The house is clean; well equipped and has parking for 3 cars. The outside space has BBQ, hot tub, table and seating; beach; fire pit and mooring for a good size dinghy. Our visitors were a range of ages and all enjoyed the house's facilities, the lake and local walks. The house is dog friendly! Overall a lovely relaxed visit with plenty to do whatever the weather.

My Sister has stayed here a couple of times before, so it seemed a good choice when our extended family was looking for a relaxing private place to stay that could accommodate 10 of us, for a pre Christmas get together and we couldn’t have chosen better. We stayed in the sleeps 11 Mayo Landing cabin on its own island setting making it feel private, and a little bit exclusive. There are only 8 guest cabins and though you can see other cabins mostly in the distance, they are all well placed and spaced out. The family run site has been established and continues to be run with the environment and nature in mind, and that low impact approach really shows. As to our cabin it accommodated us all internally in comfort and was well considered throughout, with amble space for us to eat, play games and relax. Externally we enjoyed all the faculties, heated pool though a little chilly for December, the hot tub, rowing boat, log fired sauna and fire pit. Overall the owners have in our opinion thought of everything including the often overlooked little things to make their guests stay special. And in a word that’s what they achieved here something special.

We booked Island Lodge a year ago because we had become fed up with the noise of New Year at home with loud fireworks etc. and were determined to have a peaceful New Year for 2024! We love nature and the outdoors and the location sounded perfect. I’m delighted to say it lived up to expectations in every way. The lodge was beautiful, cosy and had an amazing view down the lake. We went out rowing each day and spent lots of time watching the wildlife. Highlights included multiple sightings of an otter, watching the male Goosander hunting under water just off our boat dock, the blue flash of the kingfisher and tremendous starling murmurations each evening. James checked in with us to make sure everything was ok at the start of our holiday and again the evening before we left. We had no complaints at all (I couldn’t even moan about not catching any fish - I drowned a few maggots and spent some time lure fishing and loved every moment because the location is so special - catching a fish would just have been the icing on the cake and I appreciate this is not primarily a fishing venue). In summary, having had the peaceful New Year we craved, we would book to come back without hesitation.

This is our 3rd year coming back here and it never disappoints. The cabins are spacious and beautiful. The lake and wildlife just relax you. I could spend hours just sitting there staring at it. Take a walk round the lake and see all the different lodges. Lots of little villages to visit if you want to get out and about. We love this place and are already looking at booking our 4th trip. Book early would be my advice as it gets booked up quickly. James and Anthony are the perfect t hosts. They keep the place running like a well oiled machine but leave you to enjoy your stay. Highly recommend a visit. Thanks again James and Anthony. We will see you again soon. Hoping for a March break this time instead of December. Nicole.

Stayed this time at Kaisers Kabin - wasn’t my favourite as no shower for the 2 bedrooms upstairs and I wasn’t a fan of the spiral staircase (headroom not great ) but that is just my opinion, everything else is just as good. Where the cabin is situated is very private and the outlook is beautiful . Hot tub on the decking was a great place to watch the otters - will definitely be returning next year. Thanks to James and family for another great stay x

Stayed at the Island Lodge for four nights .Wow what a great place this is to stay . The cabin definitely had the wow factor as soon as we stepped inside . There was everthing you needed in the cabin especially the two large crates of logs for the log burner / fire pit . The cabin was perfect/ peaceful and felt totally secluded. This place is perfect to totally relax and unwind . Had some extras two fluffy robes / hot tub and the electric outboard motor for the boat ( took the boat out every morning for a peaceful ride around the lake ). And a big thank you to James for coming out to sorting the hot tub out ( just had to text him and he was there within 10 minutes) , which was great to relax in and take in the scenery . On the first evening while sat on the chairs on the jetty we had a otter put in an appearance so for one hour sat there totally quiet watching it catch fish . As first timers can definitely say will be booking again.

This was out second visit to log house holidays. We came at Christmas a couple of years ago and booked as soon as we left for this September's week holiday with all the family. We stayed at Mayo landing and all I can say is WOW. The best relaxing weeks holiday. The weather was amazing, the pool an added bonus and the log house had everything you could need. James and his staff were all really accommodating and helpful. The grounds are kept immaculate. Nothing was too much trouble. If you are thinking of booking, do it! This is a real.treat for relaxation and family time. We will be back! Thank you log house holidays.

As the title says, another incredible stay at Log House Holidays, and specifically Lake Springs House for the second year running! For a full, comprehensive review please see my review from last year as no re-invention of the wheel is necessary! Suffice to say that this year's stay was just as incredible as last years, it was like home from home! James and the team from Log House Holidays were again, as always, very helpful and on hand when needed, but at the same time respectful of the privacy you are seeking with being in such a wonderful place! It was just the same as last year, the cabin was very clean and comfortable and nicely equipped with all the essentials that you could need for a self catering stay. The full circular walk around the lake is definitely worth doing, it's on a nicely laid gravel path with a few places to stop and rest along the way, especially in the heat of when we were there this June, although some of the walk is through trees too so some relief from the sun. The walk took us just under an hour to do, but could be done quicker, but I couldn't walk more than a few paces before stopping to take photos of all the incredible wildlife! Talking of wildlife, we saw lots of Geese, Ducks, Swans, Terns and also some more unusual animals including an European Green Woodpecker and a grass snake, and not forgetting a red fox that startled me as he was moving through the tall grass by the firepit! I will reiterate what I said last year, this is an amazing place to come and relax, unwind and completely forget about the rat race. Log House Holidays have created an amazing, peaceful haven to escape to and sit and watch the wildlife, whether that is out on the lake, sat on the decking or from within the hot tub, needless to say we did not want to leave at the end of our stay! In fact, before we had left, we booked to go back again next year!

Thank you to all the team at Log House Holidays for an unforgettable family holiday. So many treasured memories: cycling round the lake to our 'secret cove:' seeing the delight and pride on my two daughters faces once they mastered the kayaks; songs and marshmallows round the campfire; evening dips in the gloriously heated pool.... just tranquility, relaxation and family fun surrounded by the beauty of nature. We really feel that at Log House Holidays nature comes first and it was wonderful to be a part of it for our week away.
