“Simply stunning in every way”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a four night stay at Birchwood and it had been a long time coming having booked it some 7 months before our stay. After a difficult couple of years for various reasons, the lodge proved to be the perfect getaway. You will not tire of the hot tub and the Sonos sound system is a cracking bit of kit. Other than a short trip to Glasgow this was my first 'proper' trip to Scotland and this country really his a true beauty to behold. The owner Ali and her family were in residence whilst we were at the lodge, and a warmer welcome we couldn't have had. Loch Tay itself is quite and during our stay we were able to get up close and personal with this water and with the help of Ali and her boys we took away a 'never to forget' experience of this overwhelmingly beautiful loch.

I suspect we'll be returning to Scotland in the future!

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Just got back yesterday after a 4 night stay and it was truly beautiful. The lodge is stunning and the amenities are top class. We had 3 glorious days of sunshine but even in the rain whilst bubbling away nicely in the hot tub after a sauna was in no way shape or form disappointing. Alison and her family have gone all out to make sure your stay is perfect.......and it was. We ventured out to Killin and Kenmore (this was the only time we seen other people) which are lovely places to stop for a bite to eat and a wee dram! The private beach and canoe was fabulous, we spent a whole day there just chilling with a bit of fishing thrown in. If you are looking for a place to unwind and do as little or as much as you like this is the place to visit, truly breathtaking. We will most certainly be returning and would like to say a massive thank you to Alison and her family for sharing Birchwood Lodge with us. Kerry & Lee xx

“Second time visiting - when can we go back?!!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was our second visit to Birchwood, the first being in November 2013. While we enjoyed the cool air of November, visiting in the sunshine was a different experience entirely.

What is wonderful about Birchwood is that Ali has thought of EVERYTHING. There are plenty of utensils etc for cooking, along with the basics such as milk, tea, coffee and...er wine. The plastic glasses so that you can enjoy a beverage in the hot tub are yet another example of this forward thinking.

The accommodation is fantastic and I have to say, it's nice to have the SKY tv as an option when taking a break from relaxing outside. It's nice and spacious and comfortable for two. The real attraction for us was the hot tub - it's just so big and certainly there is not the feeling that you are cramped. We LOVED the barbeque too - fantastic for a steak and bbq night...vegetarians we are not.

This time round we managed to take out the Canadian canoe on the Loch. I think this is perhaps our first canoe adventure in about 20 years, but we safely managed to row (drift) to the other side of the loch before making our way back. Great experience (especially when the sun was shining!).

Ali and her family were also present during this visit but were very respectful of their guests' privacy and you would never know that they are there. Ali and her husband were very friendly and made us feel welcome.

There's not much else I can say to praise this fantastic lodge - except that we will never visit another lodge. My sister is booked up here in August for her honeymoon based on our recommendation and we are just wondering when we could possibly squeeze in another minibreak to this fantastic place...

Thank you so much for your fantastic review - it's really nice to get feedback from my guests. We really do make a huge effort to respect our guests privacy when we are at our house, and it's good to know that we manage that as we know that the majority are here for a quiet romantic break. We'd love to welcome you back and look forward to the honeymoon couple arriving in August. :o)

“Chillin' To The Max At Birchwood Lodge”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

this was our first visit to Birchwood Lodge and we weren't disappointed, the lodge is situated just of the main road and is only about 100 yards from the Loch itself.
the lodge is well maintained with under floor heating (which was great for this time of year), comfy bed and toasty quilt, kitchen facilities including fan oven and hob, microwave oven and fridge with small freezer compartment were all excellent, lounge area had a very comfy corner suite with a 32" lcd t.v. with sky. other amenities include the sauna and hot tub which were fantastic as there is also a Sonis system which allows you to pipe your own music to them.
we went for a drive to Ben Lawers and took a walk up the Edrumucky trail where the scenery and views across the Loch were amazing.
all in all our stay at Birchwood Lodge was fantastic and cannot recommend this location and cabin enough.
P.S would like to say a big thanks to Ali for the wine, milk and shortbread it was very much appreciated.

Thanks very much for your review - I'm delighted that you enjoyed the Lodge so much and it's great to get positive feedback. I'm always amazed at how many people comment on how comfy the bed is ... must spend a night there myself and leave the rest of the family in the house. Many thanks, Ali. :o)

“AMAZING!!!!!!”
Reviewed 28 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This was our first visit to Loch Tay and to Birchwood Lodge, I am 99.999999% sure it wont be our last.

Everyrthing at the lodge was perfect and as described, we couldn't of asked for anything more. The lodge is totally amazing, and was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon.

The hot tub was brilliant, as was the sauna, and the lodge has been kept in perfect condition.

There was little extra touches to out stay such as a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge - THANK YOOOOU :-)

Ali was brilliant to deal with and always helpful.

We will hopefully be back sometime in the future, totally beautiful place.
