Just back from a lovely 4 night stay in fern lodge. We enjoyed staying here my son loved it! The lodge itself is very spacious and slept 5 of us easily. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is available in this lodge. Lovely and clean for our arrival. The log burner was ideal for them cold nights and heated the whole lodge up. The hot tub adds to the appeal that your in a proper log cabin as you have to even burn a fire to heat this up!

Have to be honest I don't think you can fault this log cabin/lodge at all. The surrounding area/park is beautiful with a park and playing field for the kids and barely a 2 min walk down to the loch. The cabins are not on top of each other so you have privacy and it's dead quiet on a night time. Could only get 1 channel on the TV but we had brought DVDs so this wasn't a problem.

The road into dalavich and cabins is like driving on a scalextric track but you get used to it and the views and scenery are worth it!

I highly recommend this cabin and will be going back.........4 nights was just not long enough

Booked Fern Lodge for the weekend with friends. Travel directions were spot on and on arrival the lodge was warm and inviting. Facilities were as described and were perfect for our needs over the weekend. The owners, Sonja and Steve were a pleasure to deal with. We enjoyed lovely walks in the most beautiful surroundings and on return to the lodge enjoyed our eco friendly hot tub experience. Cannot wait to return and planning another trip as we write. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

Spent 5 days at this stunning lodge. I was with my brother and we had mountain bikes with us so we were out every day exploring all the trails and it was breathtaking... As for the cabin it was just a perfect peaceful place to relax and recharge the batteries for the next day... All mod cons available made for a pleasant stay and the beautiful location and surroundings added to the perfect getaway.... Will definitely be back in the future

“Fantastic Lodge! Stunning location!”
Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had an amazing long weekend at Fern Lodge. Well equipped lodge in an ideal location on the shores of Loch Awe. Ideal space for 2 adults, 3 children + one dog but it felt really cosy too. The lodge is next to a large field - ideal for the children and dog to let off some steam! I had a beautiful peaceful walk first thing on the Saturday morning (in my pjs!) down by the Loch - not a single sole in sight. I couldn't hear a thing - just me, our dog and nature!!

The hot tub was great. Our first night was amazing - very clear skies. We have never seen so many stars. It was simply stunning!!! We did have the option for the hot tub to be heated for us on arrival but we chose not to. I would recommend this as it takes 2.5-3 hrs to heat from cold. Unfortunately we could not get the towel rail to work at all which meant damp costumes & towels every time we used the tub or shower. However, this did not spoil our short time here.

The Loch View Restaurant is on site - fabulous meal indeed plus it means no one needs to drive (bonus!). We found it rather exciting (and scary) walking back to the cabin in the dark with our keyring torch!

I would say that the single track road (B845) leading off the A85 is not for the faint hearted. It takes approximately 45 minutes on this road to get into the village of Dalavich. We did plan to visit tourist attractions around Loch Awe but as a result of this road (+ 3 travel sick children) we decided to stay in the area - we were not disappointed at all! There are countless beautiful forest walks around Dalavich, including The Avich Falls Trail. Plus who would have thought skimming stones into the Loch for hours would be so much fun!

Overall we had a fantastic relaxing time - thank you!!

Booked a stay at Fern with my husband and a couple of friends and.it was everything and more. The cabin sits in a peaceful secluded spot with its own burn running through the garden.. The cabin is beautiful inside and out and I have never been anywhere so tranquil. Sonja was really helpful from our first enquiry giving us lots of info, We really enjoyed walking along the shore of loch Awe and next time we visit we are definitely hiring one of the boats!!!!!
