“Cosy, homely and a well equipped log cabin! Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We wanted to get out of city life for a week and this was the perfect setting - tranquil and peaceful (worth it even if it takes a 20 minute drive to the nearest shops. There's always the Rowardennan Hotel just around the corner if you want a drink and some food). This 3 bedroomed log cabin is very well insulated, so don't worry about feeling the cold.. My hardened Yorkshire in-laws were actually opening the windows to cool down! Fret not if you're a reptile, like me - there a good heating system to keep you feeling toasty and cosy. Extra blankets, buckets, towels were also available.

We found it a well equipped place to stay, important if you dealing with a toddler and 6 month old baby and wish to have home cooked food as well.

We would highly recommend this place to friends and family. Website is what it is described -if not better! Bonus points that if i did have any enquiries beforehand, the owner was very helpful in replying to me asap.

If you have never visited Scotland, there are enough leaflets etc at the log cabin for you to figure out how you want to map out your stay around Loch Lomond and beyond. For folk that don't have young kids, there is lots to do but we still found enough to keep my 2 and half year old happy. We visited Invereray Castle (where they shot Downton Abbey - breathtaking views en route), Stirling Castle, Luss (picteresque village) and Balloch Castle Country Park (good playground and a very nice setting - buggy friendly). Sea Life at Balloch and Hamilton Toy Museum (whole family loved this) at Callender which has some lovely shops.

And let's not forget Irn-Bru Slush..Yum Yum.

All in all a lovely time was spent in Scotland

“Brillant Log Cabin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

You should be so proud to own such a beautiful log cabin in an idyllic location. We entered the log cabin after a long and arduous journey and was overwhelmed at the spacious and beautiful designed layout every room we entered was relayed by a gasp at the cleanliness and attention to detail. The attention to detail is sublime and made the holiday a memorable one. We all are not water sporting types but found several points of interest to visit and the suggestions of the owners was invaluable. This was our first visit to Scotland and maybe will not return to this location but that is not for any other reason that it is mostly adapted to water sports.

Thank you so much for taking time to add your feedback following your stay at my lodge. We are pleased you found the lodge in good order and that you enjoyed your stay in the area. Yes Loch Lomond is a wonderful spot for water sports particularly for those who can bring their own boats or water-ski at the club nearby - of course that also includes children who stay at the site who enjoy just playing on surf boards and paddling on the beach. We just enjoy the peace and quiet and being able to walk for miles right from the doorstep.

“Relaxing, peaceful home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Me and my parents came from Dubai to stay at this wonderful lodge in the heart of Rowardennan. It was a wonderful experience as everything was clean and tidy and the house was well equipped complete with everything you would need from kitchen equipment to cleaning utensils. We stayed a week and wanted to stay much longer since it was a beautiful location near the forest and lake. Just what we wanted, a break from the city life. The splendid interior, all wooden and warm was always welcoming and fulfilling. Loved all the collection of books and DVDs and also cassettes and games! Looking forward for another holiday here!

Thank you so much for taking the time to do your review. For sure, over the years you have now stayed at our log cabin more than we have ourselves. And each time we go to service it we wish we could stay. It is indeed a peaceful setting on Loch Lomond, tucked away on the quiet side of the loch but with easy access to all central Scotland.
