“A beautiful house”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The house was well equipped and tastefully decorated, it looked even better than the video. We were a large party so we appreciated the two sitting rooms and the big dining kitchen. We had some good weather and were able to sit in the garden and admire the hanging baskets and other lovely plants. It was just a short walk to the Rothiemurchus visitor centre and farm shop.
I would definitely recommend the place and hope to return..

“This is a perfect holiday home”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This beautiful house was perfect for our family celebration. There was plenty of room for everyone - the kids commandeered the snug while the adults enjoyed the log burner in the living room. The bedrooms were warm and comfortable and very well appointed. The location was superb - close to Aviemore, yet just across the road from miles of woodland walks.

“Incredible location and a stunning house.”

We highly enjoyed our stay in The Squirrels. The house is of excellent value for the facilities offered. It was beautiful inside with all facilities provided to the highest standard, and the location was in the perfect place for a short drive or comfortable walk to Loch Morlich or Aviemore shops. When we needed his help, Ian went out of his way to aid us. Definitely would stay here again, we all had such a great holiday, would highly recommend this house.

We spend four nights at The Squirrels. A really luxurious hose, it has everything you can possibly need,has been decorated and furnished with a lot of taste and care to details,and we really enjoyed our stay there.
We had our year old baby with us,all we needed for her has been provided ( travel cot, high chair, safety gate,cutlery e.t.)
The bedrooms are great, mattresses very comfortable- great night sleep.
Spacious kitchen, and cozy, well equipped living rooms -TV, blue-ray , so we enjoyed a lovely movie night.
We highly recommend The Squirrels, there is nothing more you could ask for form a holiday accommodation- luxurious, cozy, well equipped and a great location, some very interesting thing to do at short distance.
We definitely going back as soon as we can.
