“Fantastic place which had a real home from home feeling”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I spent four days at Macnean Lodge with my wife and two children. From day one we really felt at home. It has everything you could ask for in a holiday cottage. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Small things like toliet roll and soap in the bathroom and cling film, tin foil, kitchen roll, freezer blocks etc in the kitchen. There is a village (Belcoo) nearby with a pharmacy, post office, small store and pub/restaurant, although we were not staying long enough to use them as we got our supplies from nearby Enniskillen at the start of our stay. The lodge has a fantastic setting next to the Lough and is very quiet and peaceful. The broadband came in useful for the numerous smatphones and tablets that we had with us and the tv and dvd meant that we were never short of things to do in the evenings. I can highly recommend this place if you would like a cosy place to stay and as a base for further exploration of both Northern and Southern Ireland. We all agreed at the end of our stay that we would love to go back.

“first class accomodation in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The lodge would suit those who value privacy as it is not overlooked yet not too far from the nearest village. It is set in a charming mature garden with many stone features and other curiosities throughout. Likewise the lodge has been tastefully and comfortably decorated. The kitchen appliances etc are all of good quality as are the furniture and bed linen, and of course spotlessly clean. The owners provided lots of extas including a great welcome pack, walking sticks, umbrellas, useful printouts of local events and notepad and pens. The surrounding area is beautiful with lakelands and woodland walks. The rental cost is unbeatable and booking and return of deposit all went very smoothly. I will hopefully be returning in Summer to see the garden in all its glory.

“Old fashioned charm with all mod cons”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stayed for a long weekend and would have liked to have stayed longer.

Cottage is comfortable and homely with a great kitchen and dining room, great beds, lovely and warm, nice gardens/patio and has wifi.

Location is great, close to lake, about 2.5 miles (5 mins) from village (Belcoo) with shop, pubs, take away and another couple of minutes to the next village (Black Lion) with even more shops, pubs etc.

Very handy for sights e.g. Marble Arch Caves, Enniskillen, Fermanagh Lakes and the coast.

Highly recommended.

“Relaxing remote and cosy!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

A lovely little lodge! We arrived and the owner met us at the lodge with the key and gave us a quick tour. There are lots of quirky ornaments and curiosities (a fair few at toddler-level but were easily elevated after a quick sweep of the place). The garden is a great size, loads of room for the kids to run about (we have a 3 1/2 year old and a 15 month old), we had lots of fun playing hide and seek.
The lodge itself is small, but not too small. Very cosy and had everything we needed. There were fresh eggs in the kitchen, I assume from the owner's farm (they were delicious!). If you go exploring there is a hidden gate in the garden, I won't say any more than that! We were also visited by two lovely pigs who popped by to say hello to our girls at the fence! We took a walk one evening and found a gate leading down to a jetty on the lake, after asking the owners permission we went for an explore in there. The lake is stunning! Wifi access is easy to connect to and there is a radio/tv.
A 15/20 minute drive away from marble arch, 5 mins from a shop and play park/large grassy area and pub/chippy.
We had a lovely time- Gavin is very nice, the rates are exceptional value and we will be returning again!
