About this listing
Onnela Lodge offers enough space for everyone in your 10-person party to truly relax and unwind during your vacation, because everyone is unique and relaxes differently, it takes some flexibility to make that happen. However, with four bespoke bedrooms, two living spaces, a game room, and a private gin bar, there is plenty of room for everyone in your party to have the vacation of a lifetime. With views overlooking Loch Kishorn, Onnela Lodge is the perfect base to explore Scotland’s breathtaking west coast.
Onnela Lodge is a one of a kind Finnish eco lodge known as a Honka House, currently the only one present in Scotland, which makes staying here a truly unique experience. The lodge is constructed from Finnish Arctic pinewood, much of which is exposed inside. This wood gives you the feel of staying in the wild without having to sacrifice any creature comforts. Furnished in soft velvet, plush leather, and solid wood, Onnela Lodge is designed for relaxation. An open-plan sitting and dining area means there is plenty of space for everyone to spend time together. The living area features everything you need to snuggle in for the night including a private gin bar area. Enjoy the log burner and 65-inch smart television while relaxing in sumptuous seating. Besides the full dining table, there is a round four-person table perfect for a card game.
For those who prefer to unwind with thumping music and a game of pool, check out the Tom Thumb Sports Bar. Because this room is disconnected from the living space, you can listen to loud music via the Sonos sound system, play a game of darts, or watch your favorites on the 65-inch smart television. A bar area and drinks fridge completes the room.
Each of the signature bedrooms at Onnela Lodge exudes a distinct personality. The master bedroom, Askival, features a super king-sized Chesterfield, a 55-inch smart television, a wall of windows, and an ensuite bathroom. Ben Loyal is the second bedroom, and also features a super king-size bed, a 55-inch smart television, an ensuite bathroom, and stunning floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Furnished in luxurious velvet and a French shabby chic style, the third bedroom, Cul Mor, is outfitted with a double bed and a unique steampunk mirror. Fitted with two single beds and decorated in an industrial style, the Beinn Damh bedroom includes hanging clothes racks and stylish black mirrors.
From the game room to the kitchen, the Onnela Lodge is designed for maximum flexibility. The game room doubles as a fifth bedroom. This room is furnished with a Chesterfield sofa that transforms into two single beds, a 50-inch smart television, and a PlayStation 4 with games. If needed, this room could also act as an office. A large kitchen with opulent appliances also means you will have the flexibility to cook for everyone in your party. However, if no one feels like cooking, the Kishorn Seafood Bar is only a one-minute walk away.
When you are ready, Onnela Lodge is a great location to begin exploring Scotland. Maybe you can begin with a game of golf in nearby Lochcarron. See some Scottish wildlife from the water on a wildlife cruise with Plockton Seal Trips. You might spot seals, dolphins, porpoises, puffins, and otters as well as some breathtaking mountain views. If you prefer something a little more private, book a lunchtime cruise. Soak in some traditional Highlands culture on a music cruise, where you can enjoy sunset views and amazing whisky. For an unforgettable boat trip, the glass-bottomed Seaprobe Atlantis offers the opportunity to view wildlife both above and below the waterline. Discover jellyfish, seals, dolphins, and even a shipwreck.
Travel a little further south, and you can check out one of the most visited sites in Scotland: the Eilean Donan Castle. Situated on its own island, this castle commands majestic sea views as three lochs meet. For those who prefer sandy beaches to castles, Applecross Beach is less than an hour drive. When you arrive at the beach, you will be able to take in an azure sea, the islands of Raasay and Rona, and, in the far distance, the Cuilin mountain range. Drive further north, and you can be at sandy Gairloch Beach. Explore the wooden boardwalk, foot trails, and picturesque sand dunes. Surrounded by rugged scenery, this is the perfect place to catch a Scottish sunset on the beach.
Because Onnela Lodge offers a space for everyone’s relaxation style, you can spend a lot more time just having fun. Those who enjoy cranking their favorite tunes up loud and playing pool can spend time in the sports bar. Quiet conversations and intimate alcohol tastings can be enjoyed in the living and dining room area. All of this happens in a rugged Highland lodge furnished with soft velvet and unique style. Whether your party chooses to explore Scotland or stay in, there is plenty to do at Onnela Lodge.
