Historic and romantic retreat for two with hot tub

West Lodge is an exceptional holiday house. The interiors are luxurious and the owners have thought to cater for your every need.
Full of history, character and charm it was originally the gatehouse to the Dunachton Estate, built in 1860, and has very recently been refurbished and refitted. It’s a sympathetic upgrade with a stylish combination of period features and state of the art facilities. Don’t miss the Clan Macpherson cat carved in stone by the entrance!

Breath-taking views towards the mighty Cairngorm peaks.

The location of the Lodge is delightful, with breath-taking views towards the mighty Cairngorm peaks. It’s just a short walk from the house to the beautiful Loch Inch, you even have use of the owner’s rowing boat if you fancy a wee trip. The area is surrounded by beautiful woodland and there are loads of great walks nearby.

Inside the gatehouse, which is all on one level, the tastefully decorated lounge has a toasty woodburner, just the place to relax in the evenings with a good book or even a dram. There’s also a television and WIFI throughout. The room also enjoys dramatic mountain views.

Stylish refurbishment with top facilities

The well-equipped contemporary kitchen has a classic butlers sink, oven, fridge, Nespresso coffee machine and washing machine. In fact, everything you need for cooking up a fantastic meal from some of the fab local produce available.

The dining room next door is a bright room and the table seats four, in case you want to have some friends over for dinner. There’s also a BBQ and outdoor eating area on the decking outside. In the summer months, you’ll be able to enjoy breakfast or lunch outside in the sunshine if you’re lucky.

The bedroom is comfortable, light and airy and boasts a king size bed, and the classy bathroom has both a bath and shower. Ideal for a soak after a day out exploring or even a swim in the loch!

Enjoy stargazing from the hot tub

One of the highlights of course is the outdoor hot tub, such a romantic place to relax, if you’re lucky with the weather you could even enjoy a spot of stargazing from the hot tub.

There are so many outdoor activities to enjoy locally and luckily there’s plenty of space to securely store your bikes, fishing equipment or skis or boards in the stone shed in the garden. The garden is secure and fenced, ideal if you bring your dog.
