It’s like entering another world!
The rooms are exquisite, sparkling clean and the owner has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable - from supplying umbrellas, torch, mosquito repellent, candles, heaters, hairdryer, fudge to Dove soap!
Views of the mountains and fields are breathtaking and the beautiful gardens, swimming pool and pond just make one want to get out to spend time with nature again!
Then there is the stunning library and lounge retreat and don’t forget the TV and games room!
I had the best night sleep in ages on a gigantic king-size bed and the early morning coffee was to die for!
Breakfast was sublime - if you get the opportunity, try the poached eggs Royale - two perfectly poached eggs on a bed of smoked salmon, delicious!
Perfect home-made bread - butter, yogurt and butter comes from their own dairy farm!
Dinner was another culinary experience - I had the mouth watering Scottish Salmon!
John, the host, is the heart and soul of the operation and could not do enough for us.
If you want good, old-fashioned service, then Quiet Mountain is all you could ever wish for and more!

Peace, tranquility and delicious food - is what we found at this farm. And you can add a nice swimming pool, beautiful garden and great views of the Magaliesberg mountain. An ideal venue for a relaxing couple weekend! John is an exceptional and friendly host.

I have just returned from my 3rd or 4th visit to Quiet Mountain, and it was faultless. Beautifully located on a huge farm in a lovely garden setting near Hekpoort, with nothing but veld and trees between it and the granite topped Magaliesberg ridge to the northwest, the entire lodge and main thatched building accommodate only about 18 guests in total, although I have never been there with more than 5 or 6 others (usually interesting people) at the same time. The service is very personalised (but mostly unobtrusive between meals) and there is plenty of space to hang out and relax without having to make small talk.
I stayed in suite # 6 this time which consisted of a cosy lounge with antique fireplace (which worked brilliantly in the single digit evening and morning temperatures), a huge king-sized bed and a roomy bathroom complete with undertile heating. Generous and great quality linen. Suite #7 is even larger and as delightful. Everything is spotlessly clean: there is not a speck of dust anywhere, and the style is rather old-world ball and claw, country cottage florals in pink, green and maroon, and your Granny's old lampshades (many of these are actually crumbling originals), armchairs and occasional tables, not to mention old armoires, framed mirrors, assorted candle sticks and much, much more ...
The dining room is a stage set worthy of a drama in itself. It is full of fascinating ornaments and paintings, lamps, idols and other fascinating bric-a-brac, each piece with its own unique story. Rather dark even in the day, it is intriguingly lit by soft lamplight, and the fire crackling in the ample grate at night. None of this excess, however, feels in the least oppressive as it might in another setting have done. It feels just right. There is a huge collection of books and magazines and a cute library under the eaves, at the top of a flight of perilously steep stairs.
The food was truly exceptional: honest, well portioned and flavoursome without being fussy or pretentious. On the first night I had chicken soup, salad, poached salmon on fettuccini and other veggies, and a poached pear for dessert. On the second, there was a tomato soup, salad, and a choice between roast lamb and duck for mains (the jackpot, I'd say, yes! and I have even had prawns there on a prior occasion). I had the most delicious duck a l'orange, two generous legs served with a potato bake, butternut and broccoli, and a sticky toffee pudding with ice cream (which I declined). Very reasonably priced selection of wines on offer. Both breakfasts, served punctually at 9 am each morning, were excellent: fruit, yoghurt, cereal, eggs with all the usual accompaniments), generous and very good quality; smoked salmon and avo (in addition) on the second day. Good and plentiful coffee. A beautiful chicken salad served as a late lunch on my private veranda after my hike on the Saturday (almost) all the way up the mountain (5 hours at a slow pace - highly recommended: did not see a single soul). Lovely pool but for use in summer only. Attentive and professional staff, John presiding over the proceedings in his inimitable over-the-top fashion. All in all a delightful experience, less than an hour from Jo'burg and all for just under R4000 for two nights all in (single DB&B with various extras). Highly recommended: one of the best places in the Magalies, I would say, streets ahead (to my taste) of more conventional options like Mount Grace or De Hoek which are geared to a bigger, perhaps more high profile occupancy, and where the food, I found, is generally adequate but by no means exceptional. Go for at least 2 nights, or longer - you will love it!

We keep going back to Quiet Mountain and usually have suite no. 7. John and Terence run an amazing country house and the food never disappoints. The service is outstanding and it is certainly a place to relax either in your own accommodation or in the lounge, library or next to the pool, but there are also lovely walks. They have a great choice of wines and you could not better the price anywhere. If you haven't been you are missing out on an experience. Quiet Mountain is an adult retreat.

Wow, what a wonderful find. My husband and I booked to stay at Quiet Mountain to celebrate our 6 year anniversary. The farm is gorgeous with lovely gardens. My husband is a trail runner and he enjoyed running to the top of the magaliesburg - which is beautiful walking path through the property to the top of the mountain. We stayed in room 9 which is a 5 min walk from the main house where the food is served. Our room was big and comfortable. The best part was the privacy - we even had our own pool and the quietness was priceless! What a wonderful place to unwind. The service by the owner was wonderful. The food was faultless, wholesome and prepared with care. Herbs from the garden, dairy from the cows and eggs from the chickens. We can't wait to get back to this lovely place!
