“The PerfectEscape”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2016

I took my elderly parents to Lacken Lodge for one week in June. It was simply perfect. The house was ideal with amazing views over the lake which constantly changed. The wildlife and nature were breathtaking. The house was very comfortable with all the amenities we needed and outside space for the occasional burst of sunshine. Avril was there to greet us on arrival and provided lots of information on what to do and where to go. I would highly recommend Lacken Lodge and we would love to return next year.

Owner's reply: Thanks Lorraine - appreciate you taking the time to post a review - and such a positive one. Look forward to welcoming you next year Regards Avril

“A tranquil location with breathtaking views.”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2015

Avril was brilliant from the word go, very quick responses to all enquiries both before and during our stay. The house itself was absolutely perfect for our family get away. Avril was incredibly informative about the local area including walks, eateries, activities etc. The views are simply stunning and I found myself zoning out due to said view on many occasions. The rooms were very spacious and the house did not take long to heat up once turned on and the log fire gave us a homely feeling. We went on many walks and also kayaking on the lake through a gentlemen named Bryan (Avril will be able to help you contact him if needed) he also takes mountain biking and off-road 4x4. I couldn't recommend Lacken Lodge highly enough and will be returning in the future. Ben, Jessica and Fam.

Owner's reply: Hi Ben Thanks for such a positive review - glad you all enjoyed your stay Avril
