We take a lot of pride in the Cairngorms Lodge and do everything we can so that our guests will love their stay here. We are very proud to have been awarded a 5 Star rating by Visit Scotland who have the following to say about our Lodge after visiting and rating all aspects.
"A great deal of time, effort and care has taken place throughout all areas of Cairngorm Lodge. The finish is superb combining contemporary style with classic design, all in keeping with the traditional aspects of the house. The attention to detail is excellent and extends to co-ordinating personal touches, layout of the property, position of the front entrance and well-designed large mature garden creates a private space for your guests. The standard of cleanliness clearly had care and attention to detail throughout all areas achieving 100%.
The new sofas and leather armchairs are high quality assessing at 5/5. The range of lighting assesses at an excellent standard.
Bedrooms: The four bedrooms are finished to a high standard and you have clearly given a great deal of thought and time to sourcing the new pieces of furniture and furnishings. The table lamps range in quality from very good to exceptional quality. The quality of the curtains in all of the bedrooms is excellent but particularly sumptuous in the East bedroom.
Bathrooms: Investment has taken place to install a third bathroom on the ground floor providing guests ease of access to a shower facility, particularly when returning from outdoor activities. Further investment to carry out improvements has also taken place in the first and second floor facilities. The new 80/20 wool carpets are equally high quality.

My wife and our 3 children enjoyed a great sunny week staying in this absolutely fantastic house. The location is great and lends itself to complete and utter privacy.
The gardens are amazing and my children spent many hours playing in them including spotting the rabbits and pheasants!
Isabelle (the owner) was there to meet us as we arrived and showed us round including making herself available for any questions we had. Altogether this made the stay very welcoming and very enjoyable.
There is so much around and Aviemore is a fantastic location. Highly recommend the funicular railway and the highland wildlife park.
Looking forward to booking here agin for next year."

We went up to the Cairngorms West Lodge for a family reunion. First impression loved the view of the cairngorms from my bedroom, the kids loved going for walks along the farm road and admiring the highland cows, zipped up to Loch Morlich which was a really beautiful autumnal beach walk, with a view of the mountains, loads for kids to do in Aviemore. The house itself is warm, well decorated, clean, good linen. Enjoyed the log fire. Good spacious kitchen for family meals. We had plenty of room. Will decided to have our family reunion their again in 2 years time."

We were delighted to arrive after a long journey at such a lovely house. The wood-burner was all set and ready to light and the owner had a left basket of logs for us. We loved the local walks but were just as happy to sit by the fire and watch TV or enjoy the fabulous views of the Cairngorm mountains. The house was spotless and well stocked with everything we could have needed. Will definitely book again."

We were so pleased that the house and setting lived up to the photos and descriptions. A classic older house with mostly traditional furniture in keeping with the period, but with contemporary touches. Also very clean and with high quality furnishings and decor. The beds were very comfortable and they had good linen and towels in every room. The setting is very secluded at the end of a farm road with spectacular views of the Cairngorms. It is also handy for Aviemore town centre and the slopes. We were there in winter but I’m sure it’s equally enjoyable in the summer when you can make the most of the generous, private garden. Will definitely return ...if we can get in that is."

When we arrived at the property it was so welcoming and warm and we immediately felt relaxed and all anxieties were washed away. With the beautiful deep red hall, the spacious rooms, kitchen and sitting room. It was very clean, warm and welcoming. With amazing views onto the Cairngorms and plenty of local attractions. I couldn’t recommend this property as a family holiday destination to Aviemore more highly.”

We stayed at West Lodge in half term which was the base for our first skiing holiday. West Lodge lived up to the description and was home from home and perfect in every way, from the well equipped kitchen to the relaxing sitting room. Comfortable spacious bedrooms and lovely clean bathrooms with lined provided. Isabelle (the owner) was exceptionally helpful from our first enquiry regarding availability to the detailed driving instructions and where best to hire ski equipment.
Ideally placed the house is a two minute drive of Aviemore’s shops and restaurants and a 10 minute drive to the slopes.
We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely look to return."
