Lovely cosy cottage with good open plan kitchen, dining & lounge area with log burning stove.. Bedroom layout is interesting with access to the small bunk room through one of the double bedrooms. Some minor issues with the plumbing, however did not detract from the holiday enjoyment. Mike and Wendy were extremely helpful and always keen to ensure that the stay went without a hitch. As a confirmed “West Coaster”, I feel that this has opened up an area of Scotland to me that previously I would never have visited and I now am hoping for a return visit next year.

We had a great time at Suidhe Cottage It's a lovely space & feels really tucked away & private.. A new mattress in the master bedroom would make it even better, as would the addition of a washing machine, although there is a laundrette in Aviemore. We loved the hot tub, especially the massage jets! We didn't get to use the barbecue unfortunately, as the weather was a bit rubbish. Kincraig is a great base for exploring the Cairngorms & we'll definitely be back.

Owners so friendly and helpful, beautiful cottage beautiful setting had snow every day (febuary) which we loved.. Hot tub was lovely and warm even in the snow. Cottage was equipped with everything we needed even had little touches in bedrooms like hot water bottles and hair dryers.. avimore only 6 miles away has all u need tesco aldi. Gift shops..home bargains..restraunts..pizza..italian..laundrette..all we met was friendly ..loved it will deffo be back. Only negative which isnt really a negative as the owners did pre warn us the garden is dog secure but we had a husky who likes to jump..the back fence is very low so he jumped over it one morning and we had to climb over on to a neighbours garden to collect him luckily we spotted him in time. Also the gate if you have little dogs could easily get through it apart from that its perfect. Also free logs on grounds for log fire. Perfect.

This is a fantastic place to stay , has everything you need and very private , also great if you have a dog as the garden is enclosed and our dog coco had a great time ruining about .. Would definitely recommend this place to others.

Fantastic lodge which pictures really do it no justice.. is such a brilliant area. nice walk up the road to water sports centre and bar which was so friendly and dog friendly. Bar right next to lodge which was great so friendly again. we was lucky to have snow when we was there which for us made it a whole lot better. sitting in the hot tub while snow is falling round you was brilliant. Aviemore just down the road with everything you would need. we would have rebooked for this year but due to my holidays having to boom over a year in advanced is was already booked. so my advice if it free, book it you really won’t regret it.

This cottage nestles in a quiet spot in the village with some beautiful walks on the doorstep. We were made most welcome by our hosts and all those within the community we met. An excellent place to see some of the highlands and well worth every minute of the trip. Highly recommend for a relaxing week away.

Kincraig turned out to be a great base for access to bike tracks and walking.. Cottage ideal for family break and hosts welcoming. A very enjoyable family holiday and hope to return again.

This was our second trip to this wonderful not so little cottage. From the second you arrive you just know how relaxing it is going to be. The hosts are amazing. They are there to help if you wish and keep a cool distance if you dont. We cannot recommend this property enough. We would give the accommodation, location and owners a full 10 out of 10. Its so quaint and lovely even the dog looks forward to arriving. Thankyou Wendy and Mike.

Lovely property, comfortable lounge and beds, great location for Cairngorms, friendly hosts, nicely landscaped garden for privacy of out door hot tub (the real gem)!

A fantastic week in the cottage.. Beautiful location & so much on the door step. Are only struggle was trying to fit everything in, reindeer herd, Wildlife park, Zip park, Loch walks, mountain etc etc. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked in for next year.

Aviemore is a fantastic location for families with young children.. Suidhe lodge is both family & dog friendly with a fully enclosed garden. Wonderful hot tub. Very helpful, friendly owners & onsite pub! 5 min drive from Aviemore & on Loch Inch for watersports. Will book again next year!

This cottage was the best place me my husband and daughter have stayed so far.. Lovely friendly welcome and the accommodation was 5+ star. Lots of different activities for the whole family to do in the surrounding area. We will definitely be back to stay in the future.

Excellent location.. Cottage was lovely and spacious. Heater in one of the bedrooms wasn't working but that was the only fault. Will return!!

Very peaceful, warm clean cottage, perfect for relaxing break, enclosed garden dog friendly house. Hot tub brilliant, especially at night after busy day, then chill in front of log fire. Lots to do within driving distance, walks nearby, would definitely love to go back, winter here would be perfect in snow.... definitely recommend for a peaceful retreat from life...no telephone ringing

I was impressed with the cottage on arrival. It's set back from the road in the garden of a large house. We were lucky as we had the large garden to ourselves as their was no one staying in the main house that week. The garden is secure which was great for the dogs and they loved the freedom to run around. The outdoor hot tub is amazing, so lovely and warm and great after a long days walk. I also liked the wood burner each evening. There is a really nice walk at the back of the property to Loch Insh and plenty of great walks only a short drive away. The owners of the property were very friendly and we were made to feel welcome in the bar. I only gave 4 stars as a few things let it down. The property doesn't have a freezer, but it is possible to get ice from the bar on an evening. There was only 1 bin bag and 1 toilet roll for the week and kindling for the first night for the fire (plenty of logs were provided) I think this let it down a bit, as I've stayed in establishments which provide enough for the week. The cottage also needs a little TLC. The toilet handle was a bit of an issue, there was a bulb out in the kitchen, the light in the hot tub didn't work, the tv in the bedroom hadn't been wired up yet for sky so no signal and the filter coffee machine didn't work. The front door was also very stiff and difficult to lock. We had a perfectly lovely time and I would recommend it, but it would be great to see these little issues sorted. All in all it was a very enjoyable holiday and a great location.

Loved it. Peace quiet. Dog friendly and I mean dog friendly especially the bar. Lovey couple running the lodge couldn't do enough to hep. Bar at the end of the garden. No phones or Internet to annoy you. Wood fire in the evenings. Pretty much 30 miles from anywhere you want or need to go. Nesting Ospreys in the loch half a mile away. I miss it already. For activities , walks, peace and quiet what a place to visit. A few bottles of the uisge beatha from a local distillery and some nice weather and its little slice of heaven. Great with friends too. Thoroughly recommend.

Recent trip to Scotland, staying at the cottage was very nice. The location is great for visiting the surrounding areas. It was peaceful, the location of the cottage is quite close to the main lodge, the guests staying there kept themselves to themselves and so did we but this could of put us off if this was not the case. There is a public footpath that runs by the side of the house no issues either. Only downside and this is my personal perspective, is that the bed was a bit uncomfortable. But everyone enjoyed there stay. The lounge is quite spacious and the kitchen is nice. We had to clean a couple of frying pans, but no real issues. All in all a very good location.

We have been self catering three or four times a year for some time now. I have to say we have found an absolute gem in Suidhe Cottage. It is set in the grounds of the Hotel, but enjoys an amaizing garden, with private hot tub and cosy wood burner. At the front of the hotel, the owners have a separate and small public bar frequented mainly by locals. The bar is very dog friendly, and the locals are very chatty too, making new staying guests very welcome. Thankyou so much to the owners for looking after us. We will definately be back next year. Steve & Angie and daughter and son-in-law. (Not forgetting Jack our Jack Russel)

A wonderful cottage full of character and the hot tub and log burner were excellent. Very relaxed atmosphere with very helpful, friendly owners. A little piece of paradise.

This is an ideal property in an ideal location for a relaxing stress free break. Strange how a property that is so different from your own can make you feel very homely. We booked for next year while we were there.

A gorgeous old fashionedcottage, that gave us peace and quiet. We've been twice now, both times have been in the winter, so the wood burning stove was brilliant. We would love to go back in the summer, the host/owner was very friendly and so accommodating!

Suidhe Cottage is ideally placed for all Wintr and Summer activities. We travelled with the express purpose of skiing in the Cairngorms. The cottage is easily accessible and Aviemore is only 6 miles away. The venue is relaxed and quiet, set in tranquil grounds belonging to Suidhe Hall. It was below freezing mostly with snow on the ground but with a log fire burning and electric heaters in the bedrooms it was very warm.. The owner, Mike, was welcoming, informative and friendly. An informal atmosphere and the colourful locals, who also frequented the well stocked bar, make you feel welcome. Highly recommended.

A wonderful cottage, great pub, fantastic people and the owners were brilliant. Can't rave about it enough - would highly recommend and we will definitely book again.

We spent a long weekend at this cottage we have had a fantastic time. It snowed every day we were there (we were hoping for snow on our visit ) Lot's of lovely walks near the lodge our dog's had a ball. Mike the owner was lovely and very helpful. Sitting in the hot tub in the snow was just amazing. The lodge it's self was very spacious the only bad point thing was on arrival there was a few dirty glasses and plate but nothing the dishwasher couldn't sort out. Overall we had a great time and will most definitely return. I would highly recommend this lodge.

We had a great family holiday the property was in a lovely position, felt as though you were away from everything even though it is in the grounds of the hotel. You cant beat the scenery and the very beautiful area. Would highly recommend.

The lodge ticked all the boxes we were looking for in our accommodation; it was homely, a decent size for 6 people and had all the amenities desired. On our last night we enjoyed a lovely BBQ in the area provided in the sufficient-sized garden. The hot-tub was also a bonus at the end of a long, chilly day!

Brilliant wee spot for couples or single friends. there are also a couple of bunk beds for kids. The contents are very well thought out with so many smaill touches that make the place very homely, compared to other slef catering places. The owners are ver accommodating and thoughtful. This is the second year we have stayed, and we have booked again for next year. The wood burner is great for cooler nights and there is plenty of wood.

Wonderful location. Very nice, helpful hosts, loved the hot tub. Good atmosphere, homely cottage, good for the whole family including the dog.

The cottage and gardens were beautiful. Very well furnished and every little extra was provided. Garden is lovely with a climbing frame and slide - our boys loved it. They also loved the hot tub, which is on the patio of the cottage and free to use as required - we even used it in the rain! Overall, a great holiday. Aviemore is lovely and there are so many activities. Our boys (9 and 11) loved Tree Zone at Rothiemurchus amongst many other places. We will definitely be going back. The on site bar is child friendly and very convenient after a long day out walking, hiking etc.

A very enjoyable experience. We were greeted on arrival by Mike, the owner, and were immediately made welcome. The property was ready early so we made our way down. We had no problems but if you are infirm or struggle with mobility then the pathway may be a challenge. The cottage itself was as advertised in the brochure, and the log burner and hot tub were utilised to their full extent. All the wood was readily available and Mike said to hep ourselves from the wood store if we needed more. The property is wood cabin effect and has rustic feel and look in the decor and furnishings. It was little too cluttered with for my taste but not something that spoils the holiday. The hot tub was perfect end to the days of hill walking, especially after the cairngorm walk which is about 10 miles from the property. Aviemore is six miles and there is a bus stop directly outside the property, but if there is 4 or more then get a taxi, it's cheaper. The nearest pub is in the main house and is highly recommended, the locals use it regularly and we made welcome by everyone, our host, Mike, doubled up as barman and was a mine of information and full of anecdotal stories to pass the evening away. All in all a very good holiday was had by all of our party and would return again.
May 2013
Lovely cottage, everything you could need supplied. Location superb with lane way to lough behind and great walks nearby. The hot tub was fun - sitting in it in a blizzard was bizarre !!! The little pub beside was great with roaring fire, great 'stand in ' landlords and friendly villagers who loved our dogs . Would love to return in summer but was fantastic for a crisp snowy Winter's weekend.

The Cottage was beautiful with amazing views. The owners were wonderful and friendly. They even drove us to a good spot to make sure we didn't miss anything and so we could walk back through the sculpture park. Also the hot tub was epic and all 6 of us fit in.

Fab holiday, well equiped and homely cottage, log fire and hot tub were the bizz! Lovely owners who made us feel very welcome and friendly locals at the owners hotel bar. We liked the fact that the Hotel bar was dog friendly and we were able to take our 2 labs in.
