Charming place just outside Oudtshoorn. Run by a very friendly old lady, nothing was too much trouble for her.
One of the best breakfasts ever. Fresh farm breads and marmalades all cooked that morning on an old coal stove.
Even a tray with Sherry in the room at no charge.
"Stonebreaker Lodge" is located 17 km north of Oudtshoorn, in Schoemanspoort, on the road leading to the Cango Caves. Although the property is situated along the R328, the area is very quiet at night. The guesthouse is surrounded by mountains and the location is really idyllic. It has a private parking and a natural garden with swimming pool.
The young Belgian owners, Hilde and Benny, have seen to it that their guesthouse blends in with nature with a real African touch.
The property has 8 rooms, in two buildings on the extensive grounds, separated from the main house where the breakfast room/dining area is.
Every room has an en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower and either an open or a covered terrace. Minibar, tea-coffee making facilities, color TV, clock radio, hair dryer, fan, ...
Extensive buffet breakfast in the morning.
On my second visit here we stayed in a bed and breakfast at the rectory. The rooms were very comfortable and quite large although not all of them had ensuites. The grounds and the building were wonderful, a beautiful example of old colonial architecture.
There was a slight problem the next morning when they didn't turn on the water heater for the guest rooms until too late, so we had to shower in tepid water.
The grounds and architecture.
Just a short walk to the main street for the restaurants.
Caves Country Lodge is situated 3km from the centre of Oudtshoorn, on the road to the world renowned Cango Caves, next to the Cango Wildlife- & Cheetah Ranch. Interesting and informative guided tours take place every half hour, covering all aspects of ostrich farming, including the viewing of eggs hatching. Guests can stand on an egg, sit on an ostrich and the very brave might like to try a ride at their own risk. At the end of the tour our trained jockeys demonstrate an ostrich race!
