About Ian and Deb Harris

We have owned White Orchid Lodge since 2007 and rent it to caring guests. We visit regularly in the winter and summer and have had numerous great holidays there. We are a family of 4 living near Norwich in the UK. We regularly take friends out to the Lodge and have introduced beginners to skiing in the best possible way. We have a local contact George who looks after the Lodge and will make sure everything is perfect for your holiday. For us the Lodge is the perfect escape from the race of our working lives, we hope you'll see why it is so magical.

Ian and Deb Harris purchased this chalet in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time at White Orchid Lodge. It is a perfect place to relax and forget the stress of everyday life. Tastefully decorated throughout and with everything you need including a lovely wood burner which makes a great focal point for the evenings. Snowboarding was great and George went out of his way to ensure we had a perfect holiday. Brilliant!

Well situated spacious lodge

  • 3 of 5

This lodge is very conveniently situated about 1hr. from Sofia airport, close to Samokov and Borovets ski resort. This small resort is ideal for families and beginners. The lodge was spacious and very clean but the cooking facilities are limited if trying to cook meals for 7 or 8 people. We didn't like the wet rooms but we did like the log fire and there were plenty of heaters so we were nice and warm and could dry out all wet clothes. The owners and manager/ ski instructor ,George, were very friendly and helpful. Overall we had a good holiday.

Owner's Response: Great that you had a good holiday. There are some very good places to eat out in both Samokov and Borovets which provide excellent value including the short taxi ride to get to them. More often than not we go to restaurants but having said that we also enjoy eating and cooking at the lodge and have cooked a Christmas dinner for 9 quite easily. Deb Harris

The Super View

  • 5 of 5

Waking up to snow covered mountains and the sun shining every morning is definately the way to holiday. Staying in such a comfortable, clean and spacious lodge allowed us to get ready for our ski each day with ease and be able to look out of the large front window to see the mountain that we would be on, only 15mins drive away. Then after a challenging day on the slopes, a sauna was ready to relieve any tired muscles. A glass of wine and tasty Bulgarian fruit and veg from the local supermarket or a trip out to a restaurant like 'The Old House' was a wonderful way to end the day and start the next. What a great holiday from start to finish.
