This architecturally designed luxury lodge was recently built on an elevated site on the banks of the River Nethy, in the picturesque village of Nethy Bridge. All on one level, it was designed to take full advantage of its position, with views along the river and across to the mature pines beyond.
The interior was recently interior designed and no expense has been spared on the fittings and finishes in this lodge, from the beautiful granite work tops and huge range oven, to the wood-burning stove and striking antler chandeliers hung between exposed oak beams. Extra luxury features such as real wood floors with underfloor heating mean that this lodge offers the very finest in relaxed holiday living.
The heart of the lodge is its huge open plan kitchen and living area, perfect for gatherings of family or friends. This impressive, double height room feels even more light and spacious thanks to its panoramic 7 metre window wall, opening onto the outdoor dining and barbecue area. Past the large oak dining table, the room extends down to where the comfortable sofas are arranged around the cosy wood burning stove, with a large screen TV with Netflix*and a playstation.
All three south-facing bedrooms have sliding patio doors, designed for enjoying the glorious river view and allowing you to step out onto the patio and garden beyond.* The king and twin bedrooms share the large luxury family shower room with an indulgent rain shower and a skylight which fills the room with natural light. The large master bedroom has its own en suite shower room and a wall mounted TV, in the unlikely event that you ever tire of the wonderful view!
The garden stretches down to the peaceful river bank, perfect for bird and nature watching, some informal fishing, or simply some quiet moments of reflection and relaxation. There is a fire pit close to the riverbank, ideal for gathering around on cool Highland summer nights.
After a day out exploring this fantastic part of the Cairngorms National Park, you may well need to make good use of the lodge’s large laundry and utility room! Its washing machine and drying wall will make short work of any rain, mud or snow that your outdoor clothing may have encountered during your adventures.
Nethy Bridge has some lovely local amenities and is close to some award-winning restaurants, cafes and bars. Located in one of the most popular parts of the Cairngorms and just a stones throw from Aviemore, your choice of activities are endless. Everything from bird watching to white water rafting is here, ready for you to discover!

"We had another amazing stay at Riverside - so much so that we've booked again for next October! The house itself was so well equipped and had everything we needed and so much more. It is the most lovely house we've ever stayed in and we will never tire of the location either. Thank you again for making our holiday so enjoyable and for making everything so easy and straightforward. " October 2022
"Have enjoyed a great week staying here. Riverside Lodge is lovely and the view is fantastic. We enjoyed watching the birds on the feeders , it was amazing how many there were! we also saw the deer by the firepit in the mornings and evenings. " August 2022
"We had a fantastic week in Riverside, despite the Covid-related changes involved. This is an area we frequent almost yearly for holidays and we’ve stayed in many different cottages from different providers over the years from Laggan to Grantown and I can honestly say that Riverside is the best we’ve stayed in yet. A really lovely house with an incredibly private garden – we could easily have been miles from civilisation. Our 9 year old declared on the first night that he wanted to move house. When we asked him about his friends back home, he simply replied that we should move the house!" August 2020
"Have enjoyed a wonderful week in the lodge.... The lodge is so comfortable to come back to after a long days walk. Look out for the deer that visits in the morning to cross the river. Take a trip to the Nethy Cafe for a wonderful lunch or coffee and cakes. " May 2022
"We had a wonderful holiday, the lodge was beautiful and we loved the open plan which allowed us to watch the children and keep them safe. There was so much to do in the local area, we visited the Osprey Centre late one afternoon and were lucky enough to see the male return to the nest after 10 days away! My son and his family enjoyed a lovely evening together round the fire pit, and we did indeed discuss returning some time in the future as there was so much to do to occupy the children, perhaps when they are a little bit older. We were sorry to leave Nethybridge and would recommend your lodges to anyone who wants either a peaceful time away from everything or a fun activity holiday." May 2021
"Our 2nd visit to Riverside Lodge & 3rd stay with Seasgairlodges - absolutely loved it, the location of Riverside lodge is very special, from the relaxing sound of the river at the bottom of the garden to the forest trails on your doorstep, Aviemore and the Cairngorms national park offers plenty of opportunity to engage with nature and provides the perfect escape from our usual madness... So much so we keep coming back! The quality, attention to detail and cleanliness of the accommodation that Seasgairlodges provides is unwavering... Just need to work out when we can return and which house to stay in! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟" September 2020
