This woodland hideaway boasts a tucked-away location, surrounded by trees in the Heights of Achterneed. Sleeping two guests, the lodge is the perfect romantic bolthole for couples looking to escape the humdrum of everyday life in picturesque surroundings. The walking opportunities in the area are endless, from exhilarating mountain climbs to loch-side strolls. For evenings out, the bustling town of Strathpeffer is just 2 miles away. After a day of adventure, crack open the bubbly and sink into your relaxing, wood-fired hot tub.

The beautiful, wooden lodge is bright and airy, with an open-plan layout and large windows framing the rural surroundings. The property has a home-away-from-home vibe, with subtle Highland decor and plush soft furnishings. Adorning the walls, you’ll find a collection of colourful artworks depicting the local landscapes and wildlife.

A few steps lead to the veranda and into the spacious lounge/kitchen/diner. Spend time here, cooking delicious dinners for two in the sleek kitchen area, to share together at the dining table next to the cosy wood burner. After dinner, snuggle up on the sofa to watch a classic film on the Smart TV. The sofa converts to a bed, to accommodate another guest if required. When day turns to night, retire to the inviting double bedroom for a good night’s rest. A stylish shower room completes this wonderful rural retreat.

Outside, rest and recharge in the wood-fired hot tub or curl up in the hanging egg chair on the veranda with your favourite book. The outside area is enclosed, making it ideal for four-pawed visitors, and there’s also furniture for al fresco dining.

The Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer is 2 miles away. The town is bursting with history and culture and has fascinating local attractions such as the Strathpeffer Pump Room and the Highland Museum of Childhood – the perfect place to while away an afternoon, if the weather’s not on your side. Alternatively, head to the distillery to sample some of the delicious local whisky. The town is a great base for walkers, with a wide variety of routes within easy reach, including the climb to the Iron Age fort of Knock Farril and the picturesque stroll to Loch Kinellan. For those looking to really stretch the legs, why not take on the magnificent Munro of Ben Wyvis (20 miles)? The panoramic views from its plateau summit are unrivalled.

The beauty spot of Rogie Falls (6.5 miles) is a must for the itinerary. The series of cascading waterfalls along the Black River are a paradise for photographers, and wildlife watchers will enjoy watching the leaping salmon from the impressive suspension bridge across the water.

The property is also within easy reach of the vibrant city of Inverness, which is just 19 miles away. Immerse yourself in history at one of the city’s magnificent castles or enjoy a peaceful wander around the colourful botanic gardens. You can also take day trips from Inverness to Loch Ness.

Cabin is beautiful and had everything that we needed for the week. Hot tub is lovely. Loved sitting in the egg chair on the veranda listening to the stream and the birds. Sandy was very helpful and friendly with lots of suggestions on things to do and see.

Could not recommend this accommodation enough. Such a beautiful cabin finished to a great standard. The hot tub was incredible after a long hike in the hill. Will be returning again!

We enjoyed our stay in this modern, top eqipped cottage. Everything was clean, barely used (next to new), and there was plenty of space in and around the house. The location was beautiful and quiet. The whole property was securely fenced so that our two dogs were not able to escape. Highly recommended.

This was our first trip to the highlands and we were blessed to stay here - gorgeous and well built cottage in a very peaceful location. No dog with us - the decor is very new and smart so this was probably for the best!! - this place is perfect for a romantic getaway and very well suited for day trips in the area. Great to have the wood burner goiRead moreng on cooler nights, really cosy. Would definitely recommend! Hide

Turns out we were the first people to stay at Cascade Cabin, and it was a real privilege. The Cabin is a 5-star wooden lodge built by its owner Sandy, and its evident he's a proper craftsman. The Cabin is beautiful and in a fabulous location. Its roomy, comfortable and luxurious and we loved it. Strathpeffer is well placed for visiting both East anRead mored West Highlands, so makes a good base when touring around, as we were. Definitely the place we'd stay at when we're in the area again.
