What a great cottage for a family vacation. This big clean cottage provided room for everyone to gather and also provided areas to sit and enjoy a book. The view from the deck is unbelievable and spending the day down by the lake on the dock was incredible. The only thing better than the cottage was the owners Brian and Muriel and it was a pleasure to meet them

We just got back from our stay at the cottage and it was an amazing time! The owners are fantastic! Super responsive and very kind. The cottage itself is pretty big and spacious, very clean when we arrived and everything worked perfectly! The dock was awesome and we loved that there were canoes and kayaks right on the property to take out.

This is one of the best and peaceful vacation we've ever had. We stayed for three days and we wished we stayed longer. We liked the cottage as soon as we arrived.

When we arrived in the cottage, Brian (owner) was already there and gave us a thorough tour of the cottage and the lake. He showed us everything that we need to know and where to find things handy. Eilean Donan cottage is very clean and equipped. The kitchen is complete with pots and pans and utensils. The beds in the bedroom are comfortable. There's a jet tub and it was nice to try.

The view from the dock is gorgeous. We had a nice weather during our stay so we spent most of the time in the lake. There's canoes and kayaks you could use for free.

At night we've also toasted marshmallows in the fire pit. There's tons of things to do. From board games, big collection of books and music. You won't get bored whether you stayed indoors or outdoors. There's a bbq grill too on the balcony. While my husband made food, I sat on the balcony enjoying the spectacular view.

On a side note, Brian and Muriel are very professional. Easy to deal and communicate with. From booking until we left the cottage.

We will surely rent Eilean Donan cottage again.

Owner response:
Thank you so much for your great review. So glad you enjoyed it. Maybe you'd like to come again in the fall. ??

We stayed here for a week during the summer of 2015, and had a lovely time. The cottage is very well cared for and clean. The area is quiet, secluded and peaceful. We spent most of our time on the dock and in the lake. We would rent here again, in a heartbeat!
