“Great base for birdwatching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2010

Stayed 4 days and 3 nights end of October/early November 2010. This is a great base for birdwatching and seeing wildlife in a fabulous location. Close to village, steam train, river, woodland walks, not far from Cairngorms, Caught train to Inverness and onto Kyle of Lochalsh - great trip to do. Lovely hotel at the end of the road within easy walking distance so you can have a nightcap by a log fire!

Great B&B, lovely people and the friendliest dog we have EVER known! The house was great, the rooms were spot on, it was spotlessly clean, nothing was too much trouble and we will certainly be back again.

We couldn't fault this B&B - Large and comfortable bedroom, spotless bathroom with a powerful shower. Breakfast was excellent, and the owners were extremely welcoming. Highly recommended!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2010

We stayed at The Boat House for 2 nights. Our room was small although the bathroom was large with a good shower. Breakfast was good. There was parking at the front. Small guest lounge.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2009

We stayed here at February half term. Harry and Ese made us feel soo welcome. The rooms are light and airy, scrupulously clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Ese knocks up a great cooked brekkie too! The B and B is opposite a little shop, very handy and only a 5 minute drive into Aviemore. We took our young family then 8, 5 and 3 years of age. There was ample parking and a louunge area. Each room had a television too.
We visited the Highland Wildlife Park, tobogganed on the Cairngorm Mountain and went on Reindeer safari and ate in two fab. restaurants in Aviemore. I would highly recommend this as a base for anyone, it is truly beautiuful for families, walkers and skiers. We are planning another winter trip there !

The staff and owners were very friendly and helpfull, they could not do enough for us.
you could use this accommadation all year round it is set in a great location, for skiing walking, bird watching, or any other out door activity. there is a golf club in the village and you can even go fishing close by.
they have a great number of bird and squirells coming into there garden that you can watch all day long.
