What a wonderful break from city life! George accomodated us by letting us check in earlier and letting us stay later. We loved the peacefulness, silence and mountain views. We will definitely be back!

We spontaneously booked a stay to break up a trip between Cape Town and Plett. It was a brilliant idea - a nice place to relax and take it easy. Appreciated the wifi and electric blanket! Such a friendly host too.
