“Would recommend Birchwood Lodge to anyone!”
Reviewed 9 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Found Birchwood Lodge after hours of searching online for the perfect log cabin for a romantic break. Booked on on the strength of other TripAdvisor reviews. It was easy to book and Alison (the owner) sent loads of arrivals information which covered everything I would want to ask. Directions are easy to follow but you more than likely WILL miss the turning for the lodge and have to turn back! Fearnan and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful and peaceful, a pleasant drive. The lodge is situated behind the owners' house, which is across the road from the loch. Although in close proximity, you do have your privacy in the lodge and also in the amazing hot tub/ barbecue area; it's not too close.

There is loads of information in the lodge about the surrounding areas, so if you stayed for a week, there would be plenty to do. The sauna and hot tub were, of course, amazing! (I didn't find the instructions for the sauna completely easy to follow though, especially regarding the dials and where the temperature was displayed?) The Sonos system was fantastic, though unfortunately it wasn't working out at the hot tub during our stay. The only other thing which was a slight problem was that we had to soak and then scrub the grill on the barbecue before using it as it was really dirty and had dead insects on it, it hadn't been cleaned since the last use.

The lodge was impeccably clean and fresh and kudos to Alison for a very well-equipped kitchen! There was every utensil and dish you could need, as well as salt, pepper, cooking oil and a complimentary carton of milk :) The bed was extremely comfy and the linen was obviously of high quality. It was a little small if you are used to a queen or king sized bed but nothing to complain about!

The corner sofa and underfloor heating was amazing and the full Sky package was a great bonus! The view from the lodge was just lovely, and one thing I really noticed was the silence! If you are used to town or city living you will love the tranquility. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly too.

Our security deposit was returned within a few days of leaving the lodge, the customer service was highly professional overall. I would rarely be keen to return somewhere but I can't wait to return to Birchwood Lodge. Hopefully in the summer when we can use the canoe. Thank you to Alison for a lovely stay.

Thanks so much for your great review and I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay. My apologies for the BBQ - I will make sure it is checked in the future, I'm sure my lovely cleaner perhaps thought that in the winter months it wasn't used and overlooked this. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'm delighted that you found everything else spotless. I look forward to welcoming you back, and the mice situation with the Hot Tub speaker cable is being addressed - so hopefully you're not relying on your own singing in the Tub next time. Thanks.

“A-MAZ-ING”
Reviewed 30 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We spent Christmas week at Birchwood Lodge and loved ever second. The views are stunning, even when its gray and wet; and everybody we made contact with where friendly and helpful.
The Lodge has everything you need for a comfortable stay - and more. The bed is like sleeping on a large marshmallow. The hot tube was perfect after a wet, muddy adventure in the woods or on the loch. The Sky TV package was great to veg infront of when you've done too much.
The little touches made us feel very much at home; a bottle of wine on arrival and milk in the fridge; Christmas decorations (including a tree) so we had somewhere to open our gifts.
The only thing wrong with Birchwood Lodge is the fact that its not mine!!!

I will be recommending Birchwood Lodge to anybody and everybody and would certainly go back again.

Thanks so much for such a lovely review, I'm so glad you enjoyed your week here. I'm sorry I couldn't organise a wee bit of snow to add to the festive spirit! It was nice to meet you both, I don't often get a chance to speak to my guests and it's really nice to get positive feedback to know the Lodge is everything I hope it will be for visitors.

We had an amazing three nights in this wonderful log cabin! Bottle of wine on arrival was lovely! Every chance we got we were in the hot tub, and the great thing about it was that it was sheltered and we could play our music through the SONOS system , which was also a nice touch! The sauna was fantastic aswell! the kitchen was well equiped, clean and tidy! the bed was amazing, had 3 great nights sleep! The big DVD collection was a bonus as was the Yahtzee board game, had hours of fun with that! 5* cabin
