A wee note from your hosts:
We must advise that pets are not accepted at this lodge. We appreciate this must be disappointing for pet-owners (like ourselves), but many guests suffer from allergies and the pets themselves can be rather rough on carpets and furniture, so we believe this is best for all.
Your Hosts have 3 more lodges in the area. 'Calltainn', identical in almost every way to Fraochan, is nearby, whilst Bramble and Hawthorn Lodges, each sleeping 2, are located off-site by the River Eachaig.

About Stephen & Liz
Your hosts, Stephen & Liz began providing holiday accommodation in Scotland in 1989, when they ran a small youth hostel for Backpackers. Then, after many years of working in Hospitality, they acquired their first log cabin in 2001. They now have four, all of which they have personally maintained, furnished and equipped to the high quality standard they are today. Stephen and Liz both appreciate how important it is for guests to feel welcome on their travels and to stay in warm, clean, comfortable accommodation, and have lots of information around to help in their enjoyment. If you need help, they live locally and have lots of tips on where is best to visit, where to dine etc. Over the years they have met many wonderful people and they enjoy taking many breaks themselves, when they can.
Stephen & Liz purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Stephen & Liz chose Argyll and Bute
Stephen & Liz were bowled over by the beauty of the natural landscape of the area and settled with their family in 2000. With their family out-growing their home they purchased what has become Fraochan Lodge to accommodate visiting family and friends, later offering the accommodation to holiday guests. It had been a life-long dream to provide holiday accommodation for visitors to Scotland, and where better than in such a beautiful location as this, in the National Park? It's very accessible too... the nearest town, Dunoon, is only 10 mins drive and the nearest city, Glasgow, is only 90 mins away. In 2016 Stephen & Liz fully refurbished the lodge to a very high standard. They made this area their home, and they are pleased to be able to share a little part of it with you.
What makes this Cabin unique
Being 'local', Stephen and Liz are on hand if any help is required, and they are always happy to share information about the area, places to visit, things to see and do. Many have mentioned how good it is to receive personal recommendations. Unlike other lodges in the area Fraochan Lodge is fully double glazed for added comfort and security, and the Rental INCLUDES Electricity, Bed Linen, Towels, Complimentary Toiletries, Wi-fi, Movie Streaming and Parking - there's no hidden costs.

Relaxing Xmas break
The lodge was in a lovely setting surrounded by hills and trees. Very clean and cosy lodge ideal for exploring Dunoon and surrounding areas. The lodge was equipped with essentials and had good wifi connection. There was no phone signal in the lodge but could get a signal in the town. Would recommend this lodge for a relaxing getaway
In September we stayed here for a few days. It was the third time. Here we found a silent and mystic place. Not far from here there is the Pucks Glen Walk. A lovely and beautiful area. At arrival we had a warm welcome. The cottage is really comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. Stephen and Liz are kind people. We forgot our USB bar and it was no problem to send it back. In any case we will return for holiday. We can recommend this location to everybodey looking for a relaxing time.
Fantastic log cabin in an amazing location
We had a great stay. The cabin is so nice has everything you need. Very clean and well looked after. On arrival we got a text from the owners to check everything was ok. Which was nice as there's not a lot that would do that. I would love to stay here again. Being able to go a walk at pucks Glen without having to get in the car is a big plus. I've been to many cabins but this one is one of the best maintained. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners either. I would highly recommend this cabin.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again. All the best. Stephen & Liz
