More information about Inver Lodge

Property information

Inver Lodge, formerly the Inver Hotel and now fully converted to a self-catering lodge, benefits from having been a hotel as it has retained facilities not often found in a holiday lodge. From the all en suite bedrooms, many with brand new facilities for 2017, to the huge central social space encompassing the original traditional bar you will find all you need for large family groups, sporting parties and groups of hill walkers and ski enthusiasts. Although situated on a minor A road, this has low traffic volumes and is very quiet at night. The advantage is that it is kept clear in wintry weather.

The catering facilities really are second to none as the former commercial kitchen has been replaced with an attractive yet functional domestic kitchen but with all the best facilities from the former hotel retained including a commercial dishwasher as well as a domestic one, massive fridge space, 4 oven AGA and an electric oven and 4 hobs, commercial ice maker and oodles of equipment.

The bedrooms have all new beds and all bar two of the bathrooms have both baths and showers, ideal for large groups of walkers, shooting and fishing parties.

The bar will be the big attraction for many and has retained one of the pumps and a Guinness surger. With notice, the owner can arrange for a keg of beer to be installed in the cellar and ready for you to pull your own pints. There is a large wine cooler and separate beer cooler. Snug and traditional this room will see many long nights round the fire with glass in hand!

To the rear of the house there is oodles of parking and grassy areas for football and al fresco dining, safely gated and fenced for children and pets.

The area is superb for the hill walker, skier, and fishing and shooting enthusiasts; (the lodge has a gun cabinet in a secure room and rod/wader hanging areas). It is possible to climb over the garden stile and head on across the fields and straight up into the Cairngorm Mountains. Royal Deeside is noted for its dramatic scenery and the nearby Victorian villages of Braemar and Ballater can offer all you need in gift shops, cafes and restaurants. There are excellent local butchers in both villages.

You also have various catering options at Inver Lodge from a full time chef for your stay (bedroom allocation needed) to the occasional, one off celebration meal by a local cook. In addition and by prior arrangement the owners can prepare a simple, one pot style meal for your arrival on the Saturday so that you do not need to cook on your first night. What better way to arrive and relax.

Your dog is welcome to Inver Lodge too and there is plenty of space for dog beds.

Visitor comments

  • E.D.
    We had a wonderful tlme at Inver Lodge. We made the most of everything. Football pitch, summer house, fire pit, bar. We lit a log stove one evening, not that we needed it, but the temptation was too great! We had three birthdays and found the kitchen excellent for cooking large meals. Landmark activity area at Carrbridge, three castle visits, Ballater Highland Games, saw the Inver Stone being lifted by a Canadian. The surroundings are magnificent.
  • DH
    Recently returned from a great week at Inver Lodge. The house is well located and comfortably fitted 8 couples. Each bedroom was en-suite and the bar became a favorite hangout. The owner was easy to work as were the folks at LHH. We hired a chef, who stayed on site, which worked out better than expected and more cost effective than going out for meals - not to mention he brought all the food and cleaned up the kitchen. Highly recommend LHH, Inver Lodge and the chef.
  • CG
    What a fabulous week with great friends. Beautiful landscape, many laughs, hikes, kilted men! The list goes on and on. Thank you!
  • J&E
    Inver Lodge enabled our 16 person group to experience a Scottish trip of a lifetime! The hospitality and the accommodation of the rooms, bar and kitchen were unbelievable. Our group was able to golf, tour and have a taste of Scotland that otherwise would have been not possible. Everyone should come to Inver Lodge!
  • N Simpson
    Inver Lodge is situated in the Cairngorms giving ideal access for walking, fishing and driving in the National Park and beyond. The accommodation was perfect for our party of twenty and provided safe parking for our twelve Caterham 7 sports cars. The downstairs bar/TV/games room plus two other large, comfortable seating areas gave space to break up into smaller groups and mix the socialising. The fabulous dining table allowed us all to come together as a group for our breakfast and evening meal. We brought in local caterers, Kincardine Cookery, who maximised the facilities in the large kitchen to provide us with excellent fare. The owner, Chris Snell, was on hand, whether needed or not, to answer any query which we might have had about the property. A definite bargain for a large group holiday
