Description from owner


Located in the Irish Lake District on the Leitrim / Cavan border, our luxury log cabins enjoy an idyllic setting in mature pine forest on the banks of the Woodford River some 7km south of the market town of Ballyconnell. The location enjoys fantastic amenities for angling, walking, adventuring, caving and many other outdoor pursuits. For the less adventurous the chalets offer a wonderful relaxing environment with only the sound of birdsong and occasional children's laughter


Far from the madding crowd, our cabins are ideally suited for couples and families wanting to get away from it all and enjoy peace and quiet as they occupy an idyllic setting deep in the forest. Situated on the banks of the Woodford River the surrounding woodland is home to rare plant species and an abundance of wildlife. Our cabins make the most of their picturesque setting, affording peaceful woodland views and individual privacy. The cabins are equipped with everything you will need for a fantastic holiday, and the attention to the small details of design and finish are evident throughout.

Very Good

“Relaxing week away!”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2019

Just returned from a very relaxing week at 36 River Valley and this was definitely a home away from home. It was spotlessly clean and there were lots of extras to make the stay even more comfortable. We will definitely return as it is such a relaxing spot. It was heaven each morning to sit and have coffee listening to the sounds of the local wildlife. Thank you Colin for everything!

Myself and 4 friends came to this lodge for some R&R from our busy lives as mummies, it was perfect in every single way! We met Bernie when we arrived and immediately we fell in love with the place, not only for the lodge itself but also the owner, she was so accommodating and her ability to make you feel welcome was brilliant! We cannot wait for our next visit, which hopefully won’t be in the too distant future!

Myself wife and 2 kids (17&12) stayed here last week for 5 night's.Wish we had of done longer now.The owners meet you on arrival and are very welcoming and friendly.The cabin is well kitted out everything you could ask for in it,very spacious and beautifully decorated.Nice touch with the little surprise in the fridge which was very much appreciated after our long journey as was the chocolates by the kids(not so little kids ).look in the utility room for lots of games for the family to enjoy.beautiful tranquil settings for everyone to enjoy. Even our 2 loved it and the plus side is actually not having Wi-Fi or phone reception as you get to spend proper quality time with the family.short stroll from the river bank for anyone who might enjoy a bit of fishing .Cannot recommend this beautiful cabin highly enough 5* all round.

You will not be disappointed booking this cabin ! Set in beautiful, peaceful and very picturesque grounds, this cabin is outstanding and extremely comfortable to stay in. My husband and I stayed with our 2 pups and we loved every second of our stay. The owners were super friendly and left a lovely surprise in the fridge for our stay. The cabin is so spacious and has everything you need for a lovely, quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of the crazy world we live in. Ok, the mobile phone reception isn't great, but that's the whole point of this getaway and with so many beautiful forest walks around and lots of games to play (look in the utility room) you will not be bored. We would recommend this cabin for everyone and if you bring your pets and need somewhere pet friendly to go for something to eat, I would highly recommend the Anglers Rest in Ballyconnell itself, they welcomed us and the dogs inside and the food was absolutely outstanding! Fantastic holiday ... 10 out of 10 from us :-)

The place was amazing. Beautiful kitted out, wonderful location, everything you could need in terms of creature comforts and the owner even left a nice little surprise in the fridge for us which was a lovely touch. The owners were friendly, helpful and highly accommodating and even greeted us on arrival which was lovely. The house was spotless, really spacious, and tastefully decorated. I wish i could have extended my trip. a thoroughly nice bunch of people with an exceptional cabin. if i'm ever in the area again i would stay and i have no problem recommending it to other people. Pricing was really reasonable too ...what more could you ask for?

What can i say? The log cabins are a hidden gem, so beautiful and peaceful! My wife and I and two friends went up for a wee easter break to get away from the buzz of work and life in general! We were slightly concerned with no wifi and signal but you know what, we didnt miss it that much! Playing board games, talking to eachother and having a proper laugh did us the world of good, with a few drinks ofcourse ;) couldnt recommend this place enough, will definitely book again next year!!! :)
