"Absolutely everything we wanted and needed in our holiday!"
Set in a wonderful location, Fearnag lodge was a wonderful place to stay. It was situated in an excellent position for us to visit all the local areas of interest, but far enough away for it to be wonderfully peaceful. The lodge was a beautiful place to stay, and the owners were very helpful, considerate and even provided items like tea, coffee, washing equipment etc so it was all there when we arrived. ...a wonderful touch! I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone interested in visiting the area.....superb!!!

"Very nice stay"
Went to Fearnag Lodge with my spouse, travelling from Toulouse. It was like described on the site. Very nice location, beautiful area. Nature is everywhere. the Nairn river valley is to be visited near to the lodge. The nearby A9 motorway can bring you as well to the north Highlands than to the Cairngorms national park and the Loch ness. Found our ten days vacations to short. Owners are very friendly so is scottish people. We recommend it for a quiet stay in the Highlands.

"The Best Holiday I've Had"
What can I say, the listing doesn't even start to describe how nice this lodge is, the photos don't do it justice. We left yesterday, although we didn't want to, after 2 weeks of chilling out. There is so much to do and see in the local area, that 2 weeks wasn't enough time to do it all. the lodge is located in a good central point of the highlands, allowing easy access to nearly all attractions in the highlands. This is a place I want to return to, and I know the family are of the same mind. A big thank you to William & Rhona for making the lodge such a welcoming and comfortable place to stay, and for being so kind throughout our stay

"Lovely, stylish, comfortable house."
We had a great 3 night stay here with our 2 children, aged 3 and 17 months. A high chair was provided and there was a travel cot available too. We used the house as a base to visit nearby Inverness, as we were meeting with friends there, but the surrounding area is lovely too and there were several walks straight from the house. The house is very private and we were impressed by the high quality of everything in t he property, from the towels and bed linen to the log burner (which we didn't need to use as the underfloor heating kept us cosy). It is spacious enough for a growing family and with 3 bedrooms, we had one for each of the children. We would like to come back to stay again one day and I would definitely recommend this to anybody visiting this area - with children or not.

"Abeautiful place with excellent facilities"
We cannot rate this place too highly - it was a beautiful place to stay. William and Rhona were very welcoming. We enjoyed being in the countryside away from the noise of the city. However, it was an excellent place to stay for exploring the Highlands and the Cairngorms. Our 10yr old daughter who is disabled loved the place - the only thing that was difficult were the spiral staircase and the shower. The shower did have grab rails but it was not really a walk in shower - it couldn't have been done by a wheelchair user!

"Unforgettable Scottish Retreat"
Finally decided to bite the bullet and take a road trip to Scotland to find the infamous Nessie. With the family in tow and a 7 hour drive ahead, arriving at Fearnag Lodge was a great relief. An impressive building set just off the main road in Farr. Very easy to get to from the A9 and appears on TomTom postcode search right to the front gate. The Lodge itself was absolutely fantastic, a very homely place with all the creature comforts we could have wanted which just added to a nice relaxing break. The owners William and Rhona are very knowledgable about the environmentally friendly accommodation and the local and wider area. Our only regret was not booking in for a longer stay in this wonderful lodge, truly a home from home. Will definitely be visiting again to catch a glimpse of the Aurora. Thanks for a brilliant stay at your lodge.

"First class cabin in a lovely location"
We enquired about the cabin via email at the very last minute and I was surprised to get a reply from William the owner the within minutes, especially as it was late at night. We were impressed by the photos on the website and amazed that it was still available. William kindly offered us a last minute discount price which we grabbed with both hands! It would have been out of our budget at the standard rate because this was our third holiday of the year and we should have been camping had the forecast of gale force winds not put us off! But having visited I can definitely say that it's worth every penny whether you get a discount or not. Because we ate in most nights we saved money that would have gone on expensive bar tabs and we didn't miss having a local pub at all. The area isn't touristy at all which is nice and the location is fantastic. It's location 10 minutes drive from the A9 means that you are ideally placed to explore Inverness and the highlands with ease. The only minor criticism I would have is that the view from the cabin includes pylons but we didn't mind. It's the standard of the cabin itself which really sets this apart from other options. It's newly built this year (2011) and the standard that William and Rhona have achieved is very, very high. They haven't cut corners anywhere! The kitchen features a granite worktop, modern appliances, an excellent oven and hob, not to mention just about every utensil you could possibly need! The two bathrooms were spacious and finished well. I particularly liked the downstairs walk in shower. The main bedroom was spacious and had it's own balcony. Beds were very comfortable and we found that there was more than storage space for all our clothes. It took a while to get used to the ground source heating system because we just weren't expecting it to keep the house so warm! But let's be honest, is a nice problem to have in Scotland! I'm absolutely sure that even in the coldest of winters you would be toasty warm here. I loved the eco credentials of the cabin and it's clear that William and Rhona haven't done this just to make money. All in all, I can't recommend this place enough and we'll definitely be back at some point!
