Our farm-style accommodation amongst the horses, trees, wildflowers and bedazzling birds and insects of the region offer a tranquil but exhilarating country getaway. Here your gaze across extraordinarily soothing views in a rustic environment will remain uninterrupted.

We offer 3 distinctly unique houses all with their own histories and stories. All the houses are equipped with basic food preparation and cooking facilities, as well as a braai (barbecue) area for self-catering. There are also various restaurants in the village of Kaapsehoop.

Guest House

In 1937 this was one of the first houses erected on the Berlin Forest plantation. Creaking wooden floors, spacious and cool interiors, moths against the window panes and lamps. These are all reminiscent of times not that long ago when life was simpler, more rustic. Connect with family and friends on the patio or simply soak up the surroundings in the unique and welcoming ambience of the Guest House.

The house offers accommodation for 6 guests. There are 3 bedrooms, one double bedroom and 2 twin rooms, separate bathroom and shower, lounge with fire place, kitchen and a stoep with a view.

Stable House

This, the original stable complex from the early forestry years, was where the foresters kept their horses. They were used for both transport and timber extraction. The Stable House still has the alluring atmosphere of a stable. It accommodates a maximum of four people with a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. There’s a bathroom with shower, a kitchen (kitted out for basic cooking needs) and a private veranda with a braai facility.

Trail House

The Trail House sleeps a total of twelve people with 3 bedrooms; a double room and two bedrooms with bunk beds. There’s a separate bathroom and shower, a patio (‘stoep’), a braai area, and a kitchen for basic cooking.

Four seasons in one day:

Always remember to bring warm clothes because Kaapsehoop, at an altitude of 1600m, sees temperatures averaging 10 degrees cooler than in Mbombela / Nelspruit. Its unique but cool mountain climate often conjures up (at least) 4 seasons in one day.

We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us
