Snaptrip says

Kendoon Cabin is praised for its stunning, peaceful location and abundant wildlife, offering a comfortable and well-equipped retreat. The wood-fired hot tub is a highlight, despite some guests noting a learning curve. While the Scottish weather posed challenges, the cabin's charm and the serene loch setting provide a delightful getaway.

Guests that stayed at this property said

Guests consistently describe the cabin as spotlessly clean, indicating high standards of cleanliness throughout the property.

The cabin's location is highly regarded for its beautiful views and proximity to wildlife, though one review mentions noise from neighbours, slightly impacting the perfect tranquillity.

The cabin is frequently noted as comfortable and cosy, with ample space and a pleasant interior. However, suggestions for reclining chairs and better outdoor seating indicate room for improvement in comfort amenities.

Facilities are generally well-received, with a well-equipped kitchen and enjoyable hot tub. Some guests suggest additional amenities like a washer/dryer and covered seating, which would enhance the experience.

While guests appreciate the existing facilities and equipment, there are no specific mentions of gifts or extra thoughtful touches that would warrant a score in this category.

    Lovely cabin in stunning surroundings. The cabin was spotlessly clean and had almost everything you could possibly need for a break. We loved the wood fired hot tub, especially after a swim in the loch, and had pretty much got the hang of firing it up by the end of our stay. There were a couple of small issues, we had booked to stay for a week and the weather was terrible for the first few days, there was no way to get anything dried. We could really have used a drying screen to hang wet clothes and towels on. Ideally a small washer dryer would be fantastic, there is space under the kitchen counter. When the weather turned nicer towards the end of the week a small drying rotary line outside would be great. This did not spoil our holiday by any means but would certainly have made it nicer. I would definitely go back again.

    Loved our few days here. Loved the view and how close to the loch it was. Hot tub amazing - although had to buy more logs as not really enough left for us. The lodge has everything you could need. So peaceful - loved the wee touch of the bird feeders as so many gorgeous little birds visited.
