Lodge | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
The Treehouse is based on an Australian design,and is elevated to maximise the views of the Cairngorm Mountains in the Scottish Highlands.
The high level deck is the perfect vantage point for birdwatching,spotting the red squirrels high in the surrounding trees, or al fresco meals in the fresh air and sunshine - no midges here! And, on a clear night,you can sit out here with a glass of whisky, and enjoy the most amazing view of the starry sky.
The lodge is set amongst pine and birch woodland, overlooking the Strathspey Steam Railway line,( steam trains only,no mainline service!) and the renowned Boat of Garten Golf course.
We provide birdfood for birdwatchers, wellies for walkers, and a spacious comfy lounge if you just want to relax and enjoy the peace and the view.
The kitchen is so well equipped, there's even a food processor, and juicer, AND plenty recipe books for inspiration!
The Treehouse is in the picturesque village of Boat of Garten,in the Cairngorm National Park, just a few miles north of Aviemore, and only 2.5 hours drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow.
Local shops and restaurants are only a few minutes walk away.
Pets are welcome, and our prices include all fuel, logs, electricity, bedlinen and towels.

The Scottish Highlands region
Boat of Garten is a picturesque village in the Cairngorm National Park. It is a beautiful place to holiday, with stunning mountain views, heather covered hills, and tall Scots Pine trees.
It is just 5 miles north of Aviemore ( nearest train station), and 30 miles south of Inverness ( nearest airport). Edinburgh and Glasgow are approximately 2.5 hours drive.
Boat of Garten
This area of Scotland is ideal for both active and relaxing holidays.
There are numerous walks and bike trails nearby. There are watersports centres at Loch Morlich and Loch Insh.
Boat of Garten golf course is just 5 minutes walk from the lodge.
There is also horse-riding, quad biking, tennis, swimming, and clay-pigeon shooting available in the area.
Landmark Forest Adventure Park is fantastic for children ( and adults!!) and is only 5 miles away.
The Highland Wildlife Park is also a wonderful place to visit, and is about 12 miles away.
For keen birdwatchers, you don't really need to leave the Treehouse as we have so many birds in the garden. But we also have the RSPB Osprey Centre, just a few miles away, at Loch Garten.
We also have red squirrels in the garden, and can easily view these from our fantastic 'tree level' deck.

"A unique house in a stunning location"
The Treehouse feels more like a home from home rather than a holiday rental. It is ideally located within Boat of Garten. When inside, the house feels as if it stands in isolation. Yet, it is less tha… More

"Great location and house but diy skills needed"
Great location and house but we had problems with the shower, heating and log. runner despite following all instructions and don't want to have to deal with this on holiday. Bedroom tvs. Rey sma… More
Guests texted regarding heating on Saturday evening, and we called them back and talked through checking room thermostat, boiler timer settings. As we were assured these were fine, we then drove to the property to check the heating to find that heating was working perfectly, but room thermostat was turned down. Thermostat was turned up and heating came on instantly.
We could not have responded any quicker to the issue, and there was no fault with the heating.
The shower pump cut out ( due to a power surge - these things are rare but outwith our control) but this was resolved by the guest, as per the instructions, by pressing the reset button.
The bedroom TVs are 19", standard bedroom size, but there is a large one in the lounge.
Regarding lighting, there is no ceiling light in the lounge, due to the design of the roof, but there are 5 table lights and 3 wall lights.
The guests emailed after their stay to say they had thoroughly enjoyed their stay!

Glad you enjoyed your stay, we would be delighted to have you back anytime.
We take on board your comment about the stair. We have been unable to source a stairgate wide enough to fit, but without a bottom bar which could be a hazard to other guests.
