“Well worth booking”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had booked this house, as my dad is confined to a wheelchair and had been looking for somewhere suitable the owners were very accommodating with my questions, prior to booking. The en-suite master bedroom provided everything required for my dad to manage apart from the fact that there is a large unit within the wardrobe which takes up 3/4 of the space. This very much limits hanging space, which is required despite the number of drawers available.
The house is well set out and provides a "sun room" and living room, as well as two twin rooms. The best equipped kitchen I have ever had the pleasure to use - I normally travel with two double tool boxes, filled with kitchen essentials - this time, I only needed my knives and a pair of tongs. There is room enough for two cars to park and there are two outside areas, with adequate furniture, including a BBQ, to use, should the sun shine! The bonus is the Steam Train that passes three times a day. The house is situated at me end of Aviemore and there is a walkway into the town centre, taking around ten minutes from the house. There are two passes for a family of four to use - the funicular railway, which we did but the weather was not in our favour and the other for the nearby McDonald resort pool and sports facilities. Well worth using and an added bonus. There is plenty to do and see within Aviemore and within the outskirts year round. I would not hesitate to recommend this house and I would certainly book it again.

“Excellent property with all you would need”

I traveled with two young children (7&3) and they had all they needed for entertainment if the weather got too bad. My 3 year old is crazy on trains and this is the perfect property to satisfy those needs with the Strathspey railway passing within a few feet (the driver and passengers all waved when passing!!)

When we walked in, the property was recently cleaned as it was fresh and exceptionally clean and was really like a home from home. The beds were all of a high quality and overall the living space was very comfortable.

We came for a cycling event but so impressed with the standard of accommodation that we are contemplating coming back for some winter pursuits, if not we will definitely be back the same time next year!!

“Fantastic accommodation in a great location.”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in June 2014

This accommodation is in a suberb location for discovering all the varied attraction's in the Aviemore area.
Top marks for the rear garden rail station look that is easily spotted if you do the Strathspey Steam Railway journey from Aviemore.
Very comfortable and spacious and highly recommended.
Would stay here again next time we holiday in Aviemore.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed May 24, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Glen lives is a warm, lovely comfortable family home in a particularly good location. Brilliant for dog walking. The steam train runs behind the house which is fabulous and nostalgic. Aviemore has so much to do it's almost impossible to list everything but there are winter sport opportunities and plenty walking and cycling in the summer. Inverness is only a half hour drive North and it's even possible to go to Fort William for a day trip. Worth visiting is the woodland sculptures at Insh and the cake cafe at Insh as well as the excellent cafes in Aviemore?

“Home from home!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Excellent place to stay. Had all the home comforts and more. We travelled from Perth and Aberdeen and didn't have to take many things we would normally do, so with 3 children in our party this was very handy. Also, the bedrooms are not back to back-a bathroom between the two twin rooms and the master at the rear of the property gave everyone a little bit of privacy!! We have since all agreed we will return and are happy to recommend this property to friends and family as great value for money and a fun place to be.
