“Excellent value.”
Reviewed March 12, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed here with my partner and young child.
Very comfortable warm and close to all amenities in the village.
Sometimes when a hotel room isn't big enough this just suits us fine, plenty space for the wee one to run around.
Thank you again
John

the shelter stone cottage was clean, warm and very comfortable. It was also easy to find and within easy reach of local facilities. the owner , Dorothy kindly allowed us to leave our bags in the cottage on Sunday until we returned from a walk and went for the train in the afternoon.

“Perfect Family Accomodation central to Aviemore Town”

We loved our stay at the Shelter Stone Bothy. It was very cosy and just the right size for us and our 2 small children. The open plan layout meant we were all together the whole time. We especially loved that it was so central to the main town. We could easily walk everywhere and made regular apres ski trips to the Winking Owl which is next door but one !!!

As I recall 2 people were booked in for 3 nights!! Normally 4pm arrival and 10 am dept. such a pity that you did not contact me whilst you stayed in the cottage and my cleaner or myself would have been to see you straight away....why wait 2 weeks + to complain??...strange you never mentioned that I collected the 2 of you from the bus stop at 2 o'clock and took you along to the cottage with your bags either.

“Brilliant Location for a Ski Weekend”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 for a stay in February 2014
1
person found this review helpful

This cottage is modern and cosy, which is great in the middle of a Scottish winter. The cottage itself is located on the main street of Aviemore and is easy to find with lots of off road parking. The owner was really flexible with our arrival time, as she lives nearby, which was fantastic as we had a late start from Aberdeen.

Furthermore, upon arrival the owner was quick to mention that we shouldn't feel any need to rush to leave on our departure day. Unfortunately, due to the weather not being on our side, we couldn't ski on the Cairngorm ski resort and went to the Lecht on our first day and on our depature day, Glenshee. Because Glenshee is a little further away, we decided to leave early and this was no issue for the owner. The front door is self-locking so we left the keys in the cottage and were on our way.

We used the oven on the first night and this was easy to operate. Also, there is a Tesco nearby which is really convenient for grabbing what we needed. The best thing was that there was enough hot water for all 4 of us after a day on the slopes. The cottage had towels provided which was a bonus for the price that we got for it!

During our weekend, we visited the Winking Owl to watch the Calcutta Cup and also found Ski-ing Doo, which is a great little snow sport enthusiast hidey-hole. Unfortunately, we didn't stay long enough to visit much else but I'm sure I'll be back!
