#6 of 10 in McGregor

Value
A two hour drive from Cape Town via Worcester onto the scenic Route 62, via Robertson and then through McGregor brings you to what is often called "The Road To Nowhere", what could very well be just a drive through farmlands, has a semi dead end with a surprise. Tightly nestled in the heart of the Riviersonderend mountains, between the twin villages of Greyton and McGregor, a double story, stone house catches the eye, aptly named - Eagle's Nest.This nature lover's paradises lies up in the heart of the Riviersonderend Mountains and are also surrounded with mountain peaks of the Langeberge and Galgeberg.Both places are linked to the famous Boesmanskloof Hiking Trail (permit is needed) also known as the McGregor-Greyton Trail. This popular Trail is a 16 km Trail of +- 6h between Greyton and McGregor.Eagle's Nest and Onverwacht Flora are an ideal getaway for naturelovers, week-enders, hikers, and mountain biking or only to listen to the uproariously singing of the sugarbirds or the rumbling of the river rock pools.The lights of the nearby villages of the R62 (the world's longest wine route) and the Overberg are a picturque view day and night.Both accommodation places overlook the Gobos River with many refreshing rock pools to choose from for having lots of fun! From the stone patios the real world is a far off memory. The famous "Boesmanskloof Hiking Trail" and the mysterious "Die Galg "Road is literally at the front door of this stone house and all hikers of this trail pass by its presence on the trail.

Your first impression when you drive down to the house is one of absolute beauty. The mountains in front of the stone house are spectacular. When entering the house you immediately feel at home, the bedrooms are neat and tidy with a kitchen that caters for everything you need. Fire wood is available which is a bargain as you don't have to cart wood from town. The outside deck absolutely rounds off what Eagles Nest offers, views are absolutely mind blowing. After a walk about the rock pool is great to cool down in while admiring the views.

Well equipped self catering house with loads of accommodation in the most secluded magic spot near McGregor. Ideal for starting the Bosmanskloof hike through to Greyton. Make sure to walk along the old historic road. Great bird life. Very limited cell reception a bonus. Fire wood available for sale with an honesty jar.

We had a really awesome time at Eagles Nest. The house is well equipped and the en-suite bathroom attached to every room is a real benefit. We appreciated all the blankets placed all through the house. Bernardo checked in all the time to make sure we have everything we need and he really made us feel at home. And then obviously there are the views and the hiking trails - WOW!!!! You can't get a more stunning view and we spent hours on the patio. We did various hiking trails of which one was to the waterfall. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Eagles Nest is now one of our favourite places in the Western Cape and we plan to make this an annual tradition to visit Eagles Nest!

A great place to celebrate a birthday with special friends. The house is quirky and well equipped. The sunsets are incredible and the sunrises well worth the early rise. We scrambled down to the river and enjoyed a paddle/swim in the rock pool we'd being eyeing from above. I'd love to go back so will be booking well in advance for next year!

This self catering guest house is set in a most stunning area. Magnificent views around the surrounding valley. Take a shortwalk from the house and you will find lots of proteas and birds. If your more enegetic hike down the valley or the surrounding walks. Quirky house but doesnt lack anything even though its quite a way outside McGregor. Agree with Marcus not very child friendly,due to the large balcony perched over the valley.
