“Birchwood Lodge”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2017

This was our second time visiting Birchwood Lodge, just as relaxing as the first time. Sauna and jacuzzi amazing, especially when it's so cold outside, the perfect way to warm up. We've decided we're making it a yearly thing, wee break away from the stresses of day to day living. Would definitely recommend a stay at Birchwood. Marina x

“Beautiful loch Tay”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2017

This was our 5th return to the lodge and it was just as fantastic as our first! Ali puts in every effort to ensure you have everything you need and we were even welcomed with a lovely bottle of wine and some tasty cakes! The lodge it's self it's beautiful and cosy and the surrounding area and scenery is breath taking! The hot tub is always enjoyable, but even more so in the snow. Kenmore has always held some very special memories for me since I was only knee high, but even more so after getting engaged up at the black rock on Drummond hill during our visit! We will be making many many returns and even plan to be married in kenmore! 5* must visit!!

Owner's reply: Thanks for your lovely review Jen, I'm really glad that you enjoyed your stay - despite the wee hiccup with the local burst pipe! Congratulations on your engagement and I look forward to welcoming you again.

“Birchwood Lodge....The Perfect Getaway!”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2016

We stayed at Birchwood Lodge from 16-19th Sept 2016. It is a lovely cosy little hideaway for two. Very private, secluded and just lovely. We enjoyed everything about it, the hot tub, the canoe, the scenery etc were all outstanding. We would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be back.

Owner's reply: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Birchwood. I look forward to welcoming you back. Ali

“Relaxing, Peaceful Luxury....”

Loved our long weekend here. Was lovely and peaceful, accommodation and hot tub area was lovely and clean & well kept. Cabin itself was well stocked with kitchen utensils/pots/pans etc and tastefully decorated. Welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch :-) Would definitely recommend.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your lovely review - I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay at the Lodge. I hope I can welcome you back again in the future. Ali

“Relaxing Break”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2016

Fantastic, well equipped, clean lodge in an excellent location. Loch Tay is very picturesque and we thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness of the area. The hot tub and sauna were excellent after a day exploring. There are also some lovely restaurants in the area if you fancy a meal out. Thank you Alison the booking process was easy and you answered any questions I had promptly. We would have no hesitation in booking your lodge again and I will definitely be recommending to family and friends.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review - I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay. It's a great place to explore and then chill out in the tub! Thanks.

“Place of our dreams”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2014

We visited birchwood on the last weekend of August and were met with glorious sunshine which luckily stayed with us for the whole weekend! The log cabin is lovely set just back from the loch and is so peaceful. We enioyed the small private beach area secluded from the wind we were able to sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful views across the loch. The facilities in the cabin were just perfect, it was our first experience of a hot tub and sauna and boy did we love them!! The double shower was also a nice touch! Everything for us was just perfect we both describe the whole experience as a dream as we saw some breathtaking views and lived a life of luxury for just a few days! Thanks to ali also for the wine biscuits and milk and all her communication, although we didnt meet her she made us feel very very welcome! Wed recommend this place to anyone its so relaxing and romantic and in a beautiful setting. We hope to be back at some point and for longer than 3 nights! Definately recommend 200%!

Owner's reply: Thanks very much for your review - I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and managed to enjoy the beach in the sun. I hope to welcome you back again, I can't promise the sun again, but it's always cosy in the sauna and hot tub!! :o)


Reviewed 6 Aug 2013

We stayed 4 nights and it was total paradise! Every possible pastime was accounted for with a selection of books/magazines, DVDs, Sky TV, hot tub, sauna, music, wi-fi and fantastic views. We were looking for total relaxation and this ticked every box and then some. What more could you ask for?!

Owner's reply: Thanks very much for your review - I'm delighted you agree that Birchwood is paradise! Kind regards, Ali

“Perfection personified”

Went further than our expectations. Made even more enjoyable by glorious weather. Had great fun in the canoe, relaxed in hot tub and made use of the sauna. Even the royal doulton tableware was 5*. Hope to be back soon

Owner's reply: Thanks very much for your glowing report! The glorious weather has been fantastic hasn't it! I hope to welcome you back again. Regards, Ali

“Fantastic facilities, great value for money”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2013

We stayed for 3 nights at the lodge and would have been happy to spend all our time there! The facilities are great, hot tub, sauna, wifi, full Sky TV package, and the lodge has everything you would need for a comfortable and luxurious stay. We have stayed at many other properties which were more expensive and less well appointed, would recommend for anybody.

Owner's reply: What a lovely review - thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards, Ali
