We spent a great week with our young baby and dog, the bungalow was ideal. Aviemore centre was only a short walk and the country club virtually a stones throw. Cairngorm brewery was only just around the corner an well worth a look. Seemed like Aviemore had plenty to offer families through the year and great for walks. Bridge Inn was dog and baby friendly and we had an evening meal at Papa Rock, great food and very family orientated, dogs allowed in the front bar area. If you have a less than obedient dog (like ours) the garden was not fully enclosed and there was no hot water the day we arrived, the boiler did come on overnight and was fine the rest of the week.

The house was everything it was advertised to be!. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and had everything that you could need. Decor was modern and the fresh flowers in the dining room was a lovely touch. Hope to return in the future.Would definately recommend this accomodation
