“Quiet, pet-friendly retreat”
Reviewed 7 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

people found this review helpful

Homely, quiet lodge in prime seafront position - just right for a relaxing holiday. Yvonne (the owner) seems to have thought of everything (and more) and has provided beautiful touches throughout the accommodation. Gardens are both enclosed and there is parking in front/side garden. Our dog enjoyed the freedom of both, while we enjoyed watching the birds and rabbits. Hope to be back in the near future.

Yes! The views can be lovely at most times of the year, viewed from all windows at the back of our property. Sunshine or storm there is always plenty to watch. Warm and snug inside there is also plenty of DVDs, CDs, board games and large areas to use if painting pictures is your passion! Thank you for the lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

We loved our short break at Skeena Lodge. Yvonne was very helpful answering queries we had before arriving and we loved the treats she left for us. The lodge is very homely and comfortable. We would definitely stay at Skeena Lodge again.

Thank you for the lovely review. We do try to assist with any queries either about the lodge or the area as best we can. Having stayed in many holiday rentals ourselves we do now how difficult it can be when planning what to take and what to leave when packing the car!

Glad that you enjoyed your break at Skeena Lodge. The double and twin bedrooms make it ideal for a weekend away with friends, especially if you have a four legged friend who likes to run free on the beach that can be seen from the lodge and has splendid views towards Powillimount Point. Thank you for looking after our wee lodge and we shall look forward to your visit again in the future.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 21 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Beautiful well catered for lodge. We arrive in February and although weather not great we all settled in fine. I was with my husband two teenagers and my son who is 23. We knew technology would not be the best and there would be no sky. However we managed just fine. First time in a long time we played games and television was very rarely on playing music instead, Yvonne the lodge is well equipped and to have more or less 5 adults in the lodge we were not on top of one another. Not for getting our two little dogs. Spent mornings walking along the beach well wrapped up but invigorating. We would like to thank you for the shortbread wine and dog treats. Would recommend this retreat to anyone. Would certainly like to come back if you will have used. But just myself hubby and dogs.

Invigorating walks on Gillfoot Beach heading towards Powillimount to the left and Southerness lighthouse to the right are one of the attractions of a Winter stay at Skeena Lodge. February weather can be unpredictable on the Solway coast. Our lodge provides TV and Blueray DVD player, CD/Radio, and free WiFi and lots of drying areas for wet jackets and dog waterproofs! We add games to our cupboard quite frequently and it is nice to know that they have had some good use Heather and family.! Glad you enjoyed your stay and you are welcome anytime!

“Amazing 1st Class Lodge”
Reviewed 28 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017
2
people found this review helpful

This lodge is 1st class. Spacious,Cosy, so comfortable and immaculate inside and out. The only negative is the fact the online photos don't do it justice. If you want to visit Southerness look no further as I don't think you would find any better.The garden was perfect for our pet beagle, as its enclosed. A real holiday for him as he's always attached to a leash. Plenty of attractions near by to visit. The Steamboat Inn which is just 3 miles away, serves amazing food and pets are welcome.
Thanks Yvonne for the welcome pack, another touch of class and very much appreciated.
We hope to revisit again sometime.

Thank you Louise for your lovely comments about Skeena Lodge and thank you for taking care of it for us throughout your stay. I am sure your little beagle dog enjoyed our fully fenced in garden and it provided a little bit of freedom to burn of all that 'beagle' energy they seem to have. You would be most welcome anytime, and I hope that the weather next time may be a little more favourable. Such a pity we can't arrange that for our guests too!

“A perfect retreat”
Reviewed 26 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My husband and I arrived at the lodge on Monday 21st November and spent 3 nights 4 days. We were very impressed to find how clean and well equipped it was, we both felt very comfortable and relaxed from the word go. The walks along the beach certainly blew the cobwebs away, we wanted a getaway to somewhere peaceful and tranquill to charge our battery's and this beautiful lodge in southerness certainly did that!!
Thank you Yvonne we had a wonderful stay

Thank you Gloria and Peter for the positive comments about your stay at Skeena Lodge. We do endeavour to provide all those little extras that we have found useful ourselves when staying away. The walks along the beach can be very bracing during the Winter months and it is always good to remember to pack gloves, hat, thick socks, wellies and some waterproofs. The lodge has plenty of drying space so no real problem with the weather when prepared.
