Here are some reviews, testimonials and feedback from previous guests at Reuben’s Highland Retreat:
Well equipped, spotlessly clean lodge with beautifully laundered bed linen and towels, and extremely comfortable bed. Very quiet and tranquil with beautiful views, we love this area and enjoyed the many coastal and hill walks nearby. Twenty minute walk to Arisaig no problem, even in the dark with torches. Enjoyed our stay and imagine this would be fabulous in the summer. Not bothered by the Harry Potter theme, but expect kids love it! Found the cost of heating etc pretty expensive, metered systems seem a little outdated, but maybe not such a problem in the summer. Great tv system and excellent WiFi. Enjoyed our break away from the gloom of this covid year. Thank you.
First time here and it was a real treat! We love wooden houses and Loch Ness lodge outdid our expectations. It provided a cosy, welcoming bolt-hole from the wind and rain (it's October after all!). Everything was in spotless condition and the Star Wars Theme kept us smiling the whole time - as did, incidentally, the owner! We loved the new bathroom fittings and enjoyed uninterrupted sleep, without even a hoot from the wooden owl in a neighbouring garden. Came here by public transport by the way - worked out fine.
Stayed here from 1st-5th September 2020 with my husband, sister in law and Angus the poodle. We stayed in Loch Morar and were blown away by the cleanliness and comfort of the lodge. The beds and linen were cosy and comfortable. We all slept like babies! The lodge had everything you could ask for and the view we had from our living room was stunning. We’ve never seen the silver sands of morar and it didn’t disappoint. Took our breaths away! Location was fab, couldn’t say a bad word about our trip in anyway shape or form. 5stars from us and we will be back!
Just returned from a 4 night stay in Loch Ness lodge, it was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. The weather was perfect for exploring this beautiful location. It is close to sandy beaches, coastal walks and the lodge faces west so also rewarded with beautiful sunsets at the end of each day 🌅
A fantastic week with all my family in the three lovely lodges. Great location, stunning views and excellent accommodation equipped with everything you need. The attention to detail and hospitality was exceptional. Thank you
Just back from our 2nd visit (since 2018) to Reuben's Retreat and had another great family break. Managed to get 4 days of great weather, location very relaxing. Took up the 3 lodges, enjoyed some good social family evenings, felt safe & secure on the grounds of the retreat. Some marvelous scenery to view from the 3 lodges. Lovely inlet bay for family to enjoy only 10 min walking from retreat with, silver sands all near by. Lodges are comfortable & spotless. Must be the air of the west coast as managed to get great restful sleep each night. Life seems to be more laid back up the west highlands Local restaurants, cafes in Arisaig and Mallaig starting to open up again. Staff make you welcome with measures in place to keep you safe - no hesitation in recommending this as an ideal family holiday . Slightly too early to venture over to the islands as they were only starting to open up when break finished.
Beautiful location. Lovely lodge with everything we needed and more. We had a lovely relaxing family break. Thanks
Currently writing this review while enjoying our last morning of our wonderful stay. We have been so lucky with the weather and have managed to fit in so much into our time here. The location is superb but the cabin has been so much fun. The kids have loved all the little bits and pieces of Harry Potter memorabilia.! They will never forget staying at ‘Harry’s’ house!!
We really enjoyed our stay at Reuben's Retreat - it's in a great location and we enjoyed strolling into Arisaig for dinner and drinks at the hotel. It's also really well placed for Mallaig and catching the ferry for a day trip to Rum or one of the other small isles. We would love to return!
We had a lovely stay in Loch Morar during our nc500 route. The little house was fully equipped and has beautiful views. A nice place to visit the surrounding areas. Even got a very nice bottle of wine because of some noise from garden work. That did not bother use at all. We would certainly reccomend this house if you are planning a trip to that area or when you are doing the nc500 route.
Fantastic! Accommodation was faultless, grounds immaculate with generous garden space. Local amenities, especially Arisaig Hotel and bike hire, very good and friendly. We want to come back some time in the not too distant future. Have no hesitation in recommending these lodges. A bigs thumbs up to you and the local community! Thanks once again.
What a perfect spot for activities along the Road to the Isles, with beaches, boat trips and pubs and cafes all in walking distance. Mallaig and Glenfinnan are accessible by car or bike, but we were perfectly happy doing our own thing closer to 'home'. You have three great lodges that worked well for our large and energetic party of 17 (plus dog!), very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Amazing views of a beautiful part of the world, I want to go back tomorrow!
We have just spent an enjoyable week in Loch Morar lodge at Reuben's Highland Retreat. The lodge is very comfortable and well equipped with all the necessities for a relaxing holiday and comes with the added bonus of stunning views across to the Isles.
First visit to Reubens Highland Retreat staying in the Loch Ness Lodge and it was such a treat. Extremely comfortable from the well equipped kitchen to the tastefully decorated living space and bedrooms. The views from the lodge across to Skye are stunning and the local beach is only a short walk away. Further afield but not too far you will find more white beaches and views across Lochs that are breathtaking. Would definitely recommend the Lodges to anyone looking in this area and I hope to return one day.
Spent 3 days here in April with my wife and two teenage daughters and had a fantastic time. The lodges are clean, inventively decorated and have all the mod cons required to make you forget you are staying in a wooden lodge. The surrounding area is beautiful and within easy travelling distance of tourist spots such as Glenfinnan monument and the White Sands of Morar. Mallaig is just 7 miles away and the ferry to Skye can be accessed from there. While Fort Wiliam is the nearest town with large supermarkets there are enough shops in Arisaig and Mallaig to keep you going during your stay.
First visit to Reuben’s Highland Retreat and I will certainly be back and recommending to all. The lodge (Morar) was fab and ample space for two adults, two kids and a dog. It was the perfect space to come home to after a long days walking and exploring. The local area is stunning and you can’t get bored of the views ever! Can’t wait to return hopefully sometime soon.
We have stayed here twice and it’s been absolutely brilliant. The location is ideal with so much going on right on your doorstep. We have been in the Loch Ness lodge both times and the morning views out the living room window are stunning. The silver sands of the nearby beaches are breathtaking. The lodge is so comfortable with all the cooking equipment you could think of. The beds are the most comfortable ones we’ve stayed in. Lovely fresh bedding and great interior design. We will definitely be back! 5star rating from us!!
Great lodges, 3rd year staying and always very comfortable. Views fantastic looking over towards Skye and the small isles and wonderful sunsets. Plenty of room for the family and spacious lounge and kitchen. Very good base to explore Arisaig and surrounding area whether its discovering the white sandy beaches, climbing the hills, getting a Harry Potter fix on the Jacobite (when it runs from Mallaig over the summer) or taking the Sheerwater from Arisaig marina to the Small Isles. At the end of the day good to come back to warm comfortable lodge and relax, then sit outside and enjoy the sunsets. Kids love it (mine are 5 and 8) and always friendly neighbours in the other 2 lodges. Not forgetting the 'resident' Bobby the dog who is very docile and great with kids.
Just had a wonderful holiday staying at Loch Ness Lodge. Everything was just perfect. The wonderful views when you open the curtain, of the Skye Cuillins and the Small isles is a great way to start the day. We found the lodge cosy and spotlessly clean, with everything required for a relaxing stay. Beautiful new kitchen. Loved the plaid carpet in the living room and of course the quirky star wars memorabilia...kids will just love the Harry Potter bedroom and you can hear in the distance, the steam train ( Hogwarts Express ) passing by about midday. The local pub is about a twenty minute walk and had some fantastic live music on the Wednesday and Friday evenings that we were there. A short walk from the lodge takes you to the most beautiful white beaches. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in one of Scotland's most beautiful areas then I thoroughly recommend Loch Ness Lodge and Reubens Highland Retreat.
spent great week at Arisaig in west high lands at Reubens holiday retreat great location not far from beach which were excellent for kids to play in ,silver sands ,clear water which only came up to knee high when tide was in & could easily venture out from shore . Reubens retreat were excellent for location ,clean & tidy own private secure parking ,great views from front porch . best sleep had for long time being shift worker must have been the Air ! located well if you fancy taking ferry to isles only 7 mile & can jump on train from any of the small villages to Mallaig with some fantastic scenery certainly will head back soon .
