“Paradise”

I stayed with my partner and my small dog and we could not have been more satisfied with our stay. The owners have really put thought into everything and really have your comfort in mind. Your every need is catered for.
The area is spectacular and the cottage was a delight to come back to in the evenings. I miss America cottage so much... :-)

“Lovely cosy cottage.”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I am a single mother and stayed for one week at the cottage with my 16 year old daughter and a very hyperactive border collie!.
We found the cottage easily, the garden was beautiful and we had a 360' view, the sun shone to well after 7.30pm and we ate dinner outside. The garden was enclosed which meant our dog could run around. The cottage had everything and more, there was tea, coffee and milk on arrival, fresh flowers and home made shortbread.
There were DVD,s to watch in the evenings as well as free view tv, the cottage was very well equipped, there was a lot of thought put into it. Towels and bedding were of good quality.
The owners were lovely and really helpful, I was glad to have them close by. But they never invaded our space.
We went lots of walks in the local area and went to Loch Ness and Lossiemouth beach, which was beautiful. Cullen is worth a visit and other local beaches, we also went into Inverness and visited the battlefield of Culloden, and went to the dolphin centre, it was a lovely area and would recommend the area, the cottage was so tranquil and lovely to return to at night, we noticed other guests couldn,t get on the internet, however we could in the living room at the front window.
The local neighbours were really friendly and also helpful, would definitely return to "America Cottage" and would recommend it. Only suggestion would be a visitors book, to give the cottage a history of its guests and their adventures!

“Everything you need for a self-catering holiday”
Reviewed 31 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

person found this review helpful

We were very pleased with our weeks stay at America Cottage. The cottage was clean, well presented inside and out and felt very cosy in front of the log fire in the dark evenings. The cottage had everything we needed for a self-catering holiday and the location is great for exploring Loch Ness, the coast and Cairngorms National Park by car.

“A Wonderful Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 1 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

person found this review helpful

I stayed in this cottage in November and had a very relaxing holiday. It was lovely to arrive to a roaring fire and homemade shortbreads which were delicious. The cottage is spacious, very well equipped, extremely comfortable and warm. It was spotlessly clean on arrival, and the electric blanket and hot water bottle were a treat in the king size bed. I would definitely recommend this cottage to visitors at any time of the year.
