Stunning views from a beautiful lodge. Home from home well stocked with everything you need and more. Very spacious even for six adults that like their own room. Will return in the future.
Very satisfied with all aspects of booking and information supplied by Ian the owner.
Thanks again for a perfect stay.
Spent a week in Ellister using it as a base for a cycling trip with two friends. The house is beautifully located, spacious and comfortable with amazing views. We particularly enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped and amazing kitchen, enjoying the late afternoon sun on the extensive decking, watching the inquisitive local wildlife (stoats, deer, birds) and relaxing in the lounge next to a warm fire. Ian was a great host responding to any requests immediately and providing clear directions & instructions. Highly recommended!
We spent a lovely week at Ellister Lodge. It is a very spacious and comfortable house with lovely views looking across the water to the Oa peninsula.There is lots of wildlife in the vicinity and we enjoyed spotting deer and birds from the decking. The house and in particular, the kitchen, are very well equipped. Ian was an extremely obliging, friendly host who went out of his way to help us.
What a great find!
I visited Islay with my parents and a friend over half term and we just loved Ellister Lodge. It's spacious yet cosy with everything you may possibly need...the complimentary honey was a firm favourite with Mrs C!
The outside space is a perfect place to just take in the amazing views...even in chilly February. Wildlife can be seen in every direction and I grew rather fond of the daily greeting from the neighbouring sheep.
We didn't get to take advantage of the bikes...probably wise after one or 2 distillery tours, but the lodge is on a bus route if you don't fancy the drive (the friendly bus driver dropped us at the bottom of the lane).
Communication with the owners was fab and instructions on how to find the lodge were clear and easy to follow.
Will definitely be back again!
We approached Ellister Lodge and were welcomed with free range chickens going about their daily business. Cows, sheep and ponies surrounding the perimeter of the lodge. Inside we were blown away by the quality of the property, it was spotless, spacious, cosy, well equipped and beautifully decorated through out with stunning views to top it all off. Outside there was a Barbeque and a shed where there were bikes.
On the work top lay a welcome pack of assorted goodies - bread, honey(from their own apiary), oat cakes and Prosecco to name but a few.
The weather was great which was a brilliant excuse to use the very efficient gas barbecue on our return from sight seeing. There was plenty of places to sit outside to enjoy the breathtaking views on the endless decking. Had it been raining, there was plenty to do inside from having a strum on a guitar, looking through telescopes, watchingTV, a selection of DVDs and wi fi etc, infact it would be possible to have a dull moment!
I will definitely be back, it is fabulous value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at Ellister Lodge to anyone. Thanks to you all for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful location, amazing views, great decking providing ample outdoor space and somewhere to eat when the weather is good.
Loved this place and didn't want to leave. Have to say Ellister lodge is very well equipped, you could make a full Sunday roast or chill out on the decking with a bbq - our choice was the bbq as the weather was amazing.
Ellister lodge was spotless, very clean and comfortable, the attention to detail with the wee packs in all the bathrooms and the welcome pack of prosecco, honey, oat cakes, milk and bread was lovely.
I can't recommend Ellister lodge highly enough and I hope to return soon xxx
Ellister lodge is spacious, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Ian was very helpful and accomodating in the booking process. The sea views from the larage living room and decking outside are spectacular. The house had a very warm, homely feel. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
