“Excellent”
Reviewed 1 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Retreat is a perfect spot for two. Very comfortable and homely. The decor, furnishings and fittings are all to a high standard. It is spotlessly clean and contains everything you would need for a pleasant stay. The owners were lovely.
It is a short, flat walk into Aviemore. Parking is at the cottage door.
The woodburner was a lovely feature which, since the weather was mild, we didn't use. If the weather was colder it would be essential as it is the only form of heating in the living area. When showering and dressing in the morning we switched on the panel heater in the bedroom and the tall towel heater in the shower/wc area.
The bedroom with the king sized bed was well equiped and very comfortable and the
shower and separate toilet area were lovely although the entrance/exit to the shower was tricky because of a high step. Care was required.
Would I return to The Retreat - most definately.
Would I recommend - absolutely.

“Well furnished and comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We enjoyed our stay and the wood burner but were a little chilly when it wasn't light. Good comfortable bed and very cosy duvet. I think Aviemore is more suited to able bodied young people.

“nice place, close to aviemore”
Reviewed 11 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

comfortable place. good size for two people. lovely bed. parking right outside. ten minute walk into the centre of Aviemore where there are restaurants/pubs. There is a good sized Tesco express.
minor point - no grill tray for oven and I wonder if it might be colder in the winter. there is a heated towel rail in the bathroom and an electric wall heater in the bedroom. the long burner is the main heat so could do with a fan heater or something supplementary if you don't want to light that and wait for heat.

“CUTE AND COSY”
Reviewed 16 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have just had a lovely 5 day stay at The Retreat and were not disappointed.
For 2 Fifty somethings in need of some belated rest and relaxation this was just what the doctor ordered. It is clean, spacious and well equipped. The bed was extremely comfy and there were plenty of drawers and cupboard space.
The wood burning stove was warm and welcoming, especially after returning from skiing on the Cairngorm mountain.
Whilst the shower is a double modern shower, care should be taken when getting out as the ledge is narrow. It is not suitable for the elderly or anyone with any mobility needs.
We would also ask for consideration for a bigger TV.
The Retreat is very well positioned in Aviemore and within walking distance of the town and all the amenities.
We were able to hire ski equipment from one of the Outdoor stores, Ellis Brigham. Staff there were very good and stayed past the working day top ensure that we had everything we needed.
We drove the 15 mins out of town up to the Cairngorm mountain. The scenery was spectacular. Whilst we had skied before its fair to say we were somewhat wooden. As such we had a 2 hr ski lesson booked there on arrival which was good value for money. We had to hire helmets separately from here.
We had 2 excellent days skiing but sadly the warmer weather was against us and many of the runs were closed. We then set off exploring and visited the coast, local golf clubs, and the Cairngorm brewery. Not being a beer drinker I can honestly say I was very pleasantly surprised at my liking to some of the bottles on offer. Well you would after they give you a taste of all 10!
We would recommend to eat at both the Winking Owl in Aviemore and Andersons in Boat in Garten.
All in all a fabulous break away and we shall certainly return to the Retreat if we come back to Aviemore.

A very well appointed kitchen. Much more space than I had imagined. The owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Very cosy, comfortable and central.
