Reviewed 4 January 2013

Booked a break at the lodge for new year , we were not disappointed when we arrived , the log chalet is on the grounds off the inversnaid bunk house , has 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 rooms with a double and 1 with 2 singles , basic but all that you need, down stairs kitchen and living area all in one , with a log burner , which we used throughout our stay , logs provided by owner , this kept the chalet hot throughout our stay , also French doors lead onto a balcony which I would imagine to be lovely to sit ion a summers day , but as it rained throughout our stay we didn't use it much . Toilet and shower room a good size .Must say chalet was well equipped .
Also we shared a hot tub with the bunk house , which had a party off over twenty ! But the owner asked if they could leave it avalible for us throughout the day , which worked out great , as they preferred to have the hot tub in the evening, must say it was a added bonuses having the use of this as the holiday was very relaxed , good walks , plenty off eating !!! But would advise if staying a few days make sure you don't run out off anything as the road back to aberfoyle can be a bit much ! You are totally cut off as we had no Internet connection or Mobile network , unless we walked or drove down to the inversnaid hotel car park ! Overall great relaxed break , owners very friendly , great walks with beautiful scenery .
Would we go back ? Definitely .

Room Tip: Double room which looks onto hot tub , can hear a bit off noise , if people using it at night . Ta...

Like several other reviewers we stayed here whilst walking the West Highland Way. Also like the others we arrived very wet.
We were welcomed in and were quickly warm and dry. Given how wet we were we would have preferred a bath to a shower but this was not an option.
Our evening meal (has to be pre-booked as the nearest shops are a good distance away) was very good, a nice piece of salmon with good portion sizes. Good home made food and much better than we had in some of the hotels along the way.
Only one minor gripe, we were offered wine with our dinner and the price was not made clear before hand and we alter found that we had been charged by the glass when we could have bought a bottle and saved a few quid. Maybe we should have asked and it would be a shame to let this spoil an otherwise very good experience.
It was nice to have a sitting room to retire to with our coffee and the owner dropped in for a chat.
A good night's sleep was had by all.
Views from the house across Loch Lomond are stunning.
Good value, welcoming, warm and friendly. What more could you ask for?

Standing in a beautiful rhododendron garden and surrounded by it's own 50 acres, which in turn are surrounded by RSPB Inversnaid Nature Reserve.The house, circa 1790, formerly a hunting lodge for the Dukes of Montrose, has been carefully restored and is furnushed to a very high standard. Evening meals need to be booked well in advance and are of superb cuisine. Located up a very steep hill and hidden from the road, it is a haven of peace and traquility! I can thoroughly recommend a stay with Miss Middleton and her partner Andre! I was greeted with coffee and shortbread after a very hot walk.

After a wet day during our West Highland Way trip, Miss Middleton received us with a warm and friendly welcome in the drying room of her lodge. Our very spacious room had nice views on the colorful garden. The old hunting lodge had a very nice atmosphere and the best had yet to come: a superb 3 meal course ended in the living room with a nice coffee chat with the other guests. We had an excellent rest in this quiet country environment.

This is the second time i have stayed at this B+B as part of the West Highland Way and i think it is a beautiful lodge house. Both times i have had a room to the front of the house with great views back over Loch Lomond and the rooms are large and comfortable. The lady who runs the house is really very nice and welcoming and there is a large area for drying clothes and boots. There is a problem with the water pressure so there was an issue with the shower in one of the rooms however it's a big old house so maybe thats just one of the downsides. The living room and dining room downstairs have loads of character and great views and breakfast was very good. We did not have an evening meal here as we went to the Bunkhouse which i would thoroughly recommend also....a really good stay all in.

This establishment came as part of a pre-paid package of accomadation purchased for walking The West Highland Way.
After a fairrly hard days walking from Balmaha to Inversnaid my partner and I were looking forward to a nice warm room and a hot shower. What we in fact found was a Lady who said she could not provide us with a meal as it had not been ordered in advance , a very cold and shabby room and a shower which did not work properly and indeed it was only at our own request, that the heating was eventually put on.
The night was saved by an excellent meal at The Inversnaid Bunkhouse which was both warm and welcoming.
The breakfast at Inversnaid Lodge was quite acceptable.
We did not make our complaints known to the owner because in fact we felt that the failings of this establishment were so obvious that they did not require pointing out.
The price of our stay was not at all cheap and it certainly will not be repeated.

My brother and I stayed here for one night whilst walking the West Highland Way at the end of June 2010.
After a refreshing beer in the Inversnaid Hotel following a 14ml walk from Balmaha , we walked up the moderately steep road from the hotel to find the Lodge on the left after about 10minutes.
There were 2 residents outside the Lodge on a photography course, one of whom advised me to ring the hanging door bell . We had a warm greeting by the pleasant owner and shown to our room. I noticed the lovely smell of cakes baking pervading throughout the Lodge, making us ready for dinner. The room was large and old fashioned but very comfortable. Our bedroom on the first floor had lovely views facing west towards Loch Lomond.
We were offered pre-dinner drinks in the comfortable lounge where we could look at the many books on the shelves and chat to the other residents. A lovely meal was served in the adjacent charming dining room around a large central dining room. Once again, we were able to chat to the other 2 residents around the table.
Sleep was very peaceful and restful with no sounds here in this isolated lodge.
