Sitting in the wood fired hot-tub on the edge of Loch Awe on a cold November night looking at the stars was a great start to our few days here, and then the next morning waking up to the stunning views over the loch from the upstairs bedroom was a pretty good helper for the hangover!
This cabin is exactly as described and the views even more beautiful than photos show! Cabin had everything that we expected of it, and with the wood burning stove was always warm, even in cold November. As long as you don't expect to find much to do in the immediate surroundings, and are aware that getting here does involve a fair amount of miles driving along a single lane road, this is an awesome destination for a few days break, but do bring all the food and drink you'll want and you can relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds, well worth bringing along wood for the hot tub and wood burner if you have room. (You can buy on site, but we found this not to be as good as the wood supplied with the cabin, or what we took with us from Homebase).
Booked to stay originally with 5 people and 1 dog. Needed to change numbers, which was no problem when i explained.
Easy to locate.
Lodge itself is beautiful, situated right on the Loch. Fabulous views. Very clean inside and has almost everything you would need for a stay (utensils, guides, fire, hot tub, fridge, oven etc)
Ensuite in main bedroom too. Lovely, cosy feel to the lodge. Grounds are well maintained too. Grass recently cut.
Hot tub is great. Spent many a time in there plus holders for our drinks!
Walks aplenty nearby with shop/bar not too far away but also not too close!
In my opinion this is the best placed lodge as right next to Loch and good distance from other lodges.
Felt Sonja and Irene were very friendly and full of information. They also asked if anything could be done to improve our stay...nothing. very happy and will return
A few friends and I came and stayed a few nights in the cabin to celebrate our graduation – boy was that a good choice. The cabin itself was clean and spacious and has the most beautiful views of the loch. It's a bit tough to get to, but we were able to get there even without a car! Additionally, Sonja was absolutely amazing; she was incredibly kind and clearly dedicated to taking care of her guests. I would very highly recommend this cabin to anyone I knew and will certainly be going back one day myself!
Fantastic cabin, everything you need for a wonderful holiday. Absolutely spotless. Loved the fact that there was a good sized freezer as well. The beds were very comfortable - amazing sleeps every night. Hot tub was great for all the family to enjoy. Loved the fact that the hosts left a little something for the dreaded highland midge. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children. Will definitely return to this cabin as we could launch the boat then berth it right in front.
Spent a week at the Lochside Lodge and enjoyed our time here immensely.
The Lodge was very clean and had all the facilities you need for a week away.
Great location for taking the bikes for the whole family. Kids enjoyed playing in the woods and down by the lakeside.
Such a peaceful location, we will stay here again
Just back from spending a long weekend in the lodge. Absolutely delighted with not just the lodge but the location. The lodge itself is very comfortable and warm with the best bit being the bedroom upstairs overlooking the loch, it makes for a spectacular sunrise view on a clear morning! The lodge opens out onto decking overlooking a small piece of private land and fire pit. The hot tub was great!!!! It took a little longer than expected to get it to temperature the first time but it retains the heat pretty well so it was much easier the rest of the weekend. If I have one tip it would be to make absolute certain you get the fire right under the chimney (I don't think I did this the first time!). The town itself is very quaint and full of vet friendly people. We particularly enjoyed the cafe / shop which we had lunch in and was a saviour for extra alcohol and fire lighters!! We also had dinner in the loch view grill which all very pleasant also. All in all we will definitely be back and would highly recommend.
We had a fab family stay in this great loch side lodge, perfectly place to tour the rest of the area and then come back to relax in the hot tub on the decking and enjoy the peaceful lakeside views, Very comfortable beds!! and we had everything we needed, the fridge freezer was perfect size for us to take food with us and keep it frozen and fresh. We saw red squirrels on our journey towards ford which was perfect as it had a baby with it too :)) lots of wildlife and most of all relaxing evenings by the lake.
