“Cosy, comfortable and convenient”

My wife, baby, 4 year old, and I had a great four nights in the Riverside Lodge. The fit-out and furnishings are very high quality and the rooms are very spacious. Each of the three bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom with shower etc.

The location is great too; close to both town and the ski centre, plus surrounded by starting points for lovely walks of all lengths and challenge. And the walk to the Hilton (where you can do various activities, and which we found to have a better pool than the MacDonald) is just 5 minutes through the woods.

Without a doubt this is the nicest, most convenient and best value self-catering accommodation we have stayed at in Scotland. And the owners are very helpful and welcoming too!

“Another wonderful visit!”

This was our second early January visit to Riverside Lodge and honestly can't recommend it highly enough. Not only is the location perfect for walking into the centre of Aviemore (so no need for the short straw draw for who isn't drinking in order to drive home....) but the lodge is beautifully decorated, so comfortable, warm and inviting that you can't help but relax.
The added bonus is that our dog can join us, one of the few places in Aviemore that allow this.

I stayed just before Christmas with my partner, brother in law, 3 kids and our 2 little dogs and what an amazing time we had. The lodge is huge, very modern with a twist of tradition and extremely clean. The kids had so much space to run about both outside and within the house, we all had a brilliant time and the owners could not have made us feel anymore welcome. The walks around the area are lovely and all the main attractions, along with places to eat and shop are very close by. There's also a softplay just a short walk away which was very handy on one of the rainy days. When booking a trip we wanted somewhere that felt a little secluded but wasn't so far away from everything and that's exactly what we got. The woods right at the front of the house are beautiful and I loved sitting on the couch, with a blanket and hot chocolate watching the red squirrels running about. I really can't recommend it enough, we will definitely return as it felt like a home away from home and I can't wait to go back! Thank you Stewart and Lizzie :)

“Aviemore's Top Self Catering Property”

We had a wonderful stay at Riverside Lodge Garden Apartment with our Son, Daughter-in-Law and young Grandson. If you are looking for an excellent place to stay in Aviemore, look no further than this. The property has great facilities in all respects and is closely located for all the area's amenities.
The owners are very nice and helpful, and they clearly want you to enjoy your stay in their property.
If we are to return to Aviemore in the future, we will also want to return to Riverside Lodge.

Liked best: We immediately felt at home and all 3 bedrooms were generous in size. Good parking.
Liked least: That we couldn't arrange a longer stay because the property is in strong demand.

So glad we found this place. Fantastic base for our stay. Accommodation had everything you needed. Kitchen had kettle,toaster, microwave, fridge and cooker. Sky tv, wifi, iron and ironing board, hoover. Bedding supplied as well as towels. There is a shed round the side of the accommodation which housed a washing machine and room to store bikes. Beautifully decorated throughout in a lovely quiet location. The owners (we only met Stuart not his wife) was great and welcoming and gave advise on places to go visit and places to eat. We would book again and would highly recommend.

“Fantastic lodge”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed here for three nights as special weekend away with family. The lodge was very warm and welcoming, feeling like a home from home. It was also extremely spacious and clean and in a great location for visiting several nearby towns. Would definitely book again.

“Hidden Gem in the heart of Rothiemurchus Aviemore”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was a return visit for 7 days and nothing has changed, still one of the best holiday rentals in the area and highly recommend for any season. Sleaps 6,Comfortable, clean and everything you would need for an enjoyable visit to the area. A gentle level stroll from the lodge to central Aviemore is 20mins so you could travel by Train from London to Aviemore Station and be within easy reach of the Lodge. This Lodge is in the Rothiemurchus/Glenmore Estates close to the Cairngorm Mountain range with a vast range of outdoor activities available.
