We were fortunate enough to book one of the modernized blackhouses for a stay of three days. Our cottage was a perfect balance of rustic architecture and modern updates with a warm fire and fully equipped kitchen. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I especially appreciated Mairi's concierge-like attention and patience. Many scenic and historic attractions are nearby, and it was charming to meet visitors at our doorstep who thought we were part of the village life exhibits. (Mairi helpfully suggested that we keep the door locked to keep day visitors from wandering in, but this was not a problem at all.) We hope to come back for a longer stay in the future and have already recommended Gearannan to friends. I should also note that this rental is priced competitively and that we saved a lot of money preparing our own meals in the very nice kitchen. Being from Hawaii, I have to say we were shown true "Aloha" here.
