Rowan Lodge description

Holiday home
Rowan Lodge is a charming, ground floor log cabin in the Northern Highlands, on the outskirts of Blackmuir Wood and the village of Strathpeffer. The cottage has a double bedroom, a twin room and a bathroom, and can sleep four people. There is a spacious yet cosy open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area, comfy sofas, and French doors leading out on a private decked balcony with furniture. Outside, there is also off road parking for two cars, and a short drive to the RSPB Tollie Red Kites nature reserve. Set within easy driving distance of the Cairngorms National Park and Loch Ness, Rowan Lodge is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of this spectacular region.

The pretty spa village of Strathpeffer offers shops, pubs, restaurants and a golf course, as well as craft shops and the Highland Museum of Childhood in a former Victorian railway station. The area also boasts walks, cycle routes and fishing.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

The log cabin was perfectly located and a great place to come back to after a hard day's walking, really comfortable and well fitted out. The setting was so tranquil. We loved the place.

The Lodge was lovely and warm, very comfortable and cosy. It is surrounded by woods with lots of nice walks close by. The owner was really friendly! I would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a chilled weekend with lots of walks - really good for dog owners.

Beautiful lodge and surroundings. The owner was friendly and helpful. The beds were really comfortable with lovely bed linen. I cannot recommend this lodge highly enough, everything about it was excellent. The area is in an excellent position for exploring.

My wife, daughter and I stayed for a week in October. We had a really great stay and didn't want to leave. The lodge is situated on the outskirts of Strathpeffer with all amenities close by. Strathpeffer itself is a beautiful Victoria spa town and is a great location from which to tour the Highlands. Jane (the owner) was lovely. She was available when we needed her to be and provided an excellent welcome pack of fresh bread, cakes, jam and muffins - very nice indeed. The lodge had everything you would need; it was always warm and cosy and there was plentiful hot water. Jane had laminated cards available for a number of local walks which was really helpful. The cabin was situated at the entrance to a forest which made you feel like you were really getting away from it all. Wifi was available too. All in all I would highly recommend Rowan Lodge.

We, parents plus one adult son, much enjoyed our visit. Jane and her husband Kenny could not have been better "hosts". The lodge is compact, warm, comfortable and quiet. (And, immediately we had noticed and reported that the microwave cooker seemed to have been damaged, a new one was produced and installed). We unreservedly recommend this place to visitors to the area.

We were met by the owner, who ensured we had everything we needed, including a blanket for the dog! She was unobtrusively on hand during our stay. The welcome pack was delicious, the chalet was spotless and very comfortable to return to after a day out walking in the many, diverse venues locally, none of them too challenging for either ourselves or our elderly dog. For a quiet holiday in beautiful woodland surroundings, you couldn't do better!

The setting of the cabin was excellent. The peace and quiet was wonderful. The owner was lovely and very helpful in telling us places to visit. We will definitely be back.
