“Amazing stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

My family and I stayed in lodge 2 and had an amazing time. The lodge was lovely and clean and provided all amenities that we needed. The shed which provided dvds etc was a great treat. The only negative was the windows were easily opened from the inside which my toddler loved to do. Will definitely be back.

Stayed at Birchbrae 5th to 7th Feb in Lodge 7. The lodges are in a fabulous location quiet but ideally situated for those wanting to take in Argyll's fabulous scenery.The lodges are spacious and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Would not hesitate to recommend. Owners maintain the lodges to a high standard and the local info packs have some great recommendations for things to see and do. The walk up to Inchree waterfall and a trip to Cuill Bay and Port Appin were fab.The local is the four seasons bar and restaurant which was friendly and welcoming with a cosy fire and a choice of real ales. Loved Birchbrae and will be back.

Just back from a weekend at birchbrae with friends. The lodges are so spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean we had such an amazing time and are going to visit again in the summer with our 4 children as I think they will love it here.

Just spent the weekend with my family at the lodges and it was great. Considering there were 6 of us and 2 dogs (albeit chihuahuas :0)) the lodge was extremely spacious and comfortable. Kitchen had everything we could possibly need and a dishwasher was a wee godsend.
The DVD and games library were a great added extra and having free passes to the Ben Nevis hotel leisure centre was a nice relaxing way to spend a few hours. After a recent family bereavement a stay at the lodges provided a much needed and
relaxing break.
Owner John's communication has been great. Made to feel very welcome and myself and my family would most certainly not hesitate to stay here again. We loved it!!!

We stayed here for 4 nights as a group of 6. The cabin looked good on the website but was actually even better in reality. Spacious and modern and set within a fantastic woodland location. Overall I couldn't find a single fault. I'll be staying here again for sure. DVDs and games are available for the kids at no charge and the surrounding area is perfect for the little ones to explore.

Stayed here for a week with my whole family. We ranged in age from 4 - 81 and all had a great time.
A good location for walking with miles of trails from the back of the lodges (obvously the previous reviewer didn't have a map of the area).
Corran Ferry is just down the hill and you can go across as a foot passenger for free and have a drink or meal in the pub on the other side.
The lodges themselves are great. We had 3 over the week. The ones at the top and bottom of the site got good sun but the middle one was a little dark. Well equiped and John couldn't have been more helpful

First, the lodge itself is super large, as we had 3 bedrooms and a huge living. Everything was clean and fairly well kept. My problem with the lodge that it is isolated into an area with little to do. Generally you need to drive to get somewhere interesting. If it were on a lake or had good hiking trails then I think it would be excellent. I think for some people who want a lot of isolation, it works for them. I would have preferred something with more to do right outside, or even a nice view which it didn't have. I did enjoy that they had a fitness centre membership though.
