The Fernery Lodge & Chalets
  • FB

The magnificent Fernery Lodge is perched above a 30 meter waterfall in the Sanddrift River gorge, with stunning views of the river mouth, Indian Ocean and Tsitsikamma mountains. It offers guests breathtaking views, beautifully appointed living areas, and 7 superbly furnished luxury rooms which are tastefully and individually decorated. Every effort has been made to ensure our guests' comfort, from crisp percale linen and large luxurious bathrooms to underfloor heating and satellite television. Other features include heated towel rails, tea and coffee-making facilities, a bar fridge stocked on request, digital safes, hair-dryers and cosy bath robes. Open fire places in the lounge and dining room, a Jacuzzi, sauna and swimming pool, are but some of the features that make the Lodge a really special destination.

The Fernery Chalets
Nestled among the fynbos overlooking the river, the charming Fernery chalets are beautifully furnished and equipped, offering guests the perfect country retreat. Spacious and secluded, each chalet has an en suite bathroom with both bath and shower, and we have aspired to provide everything for your comfort from crisp percale linen and mohair blankets, to a bar fridge stocked on request, tea and coffee facilities and a barbeque with wood and charcoal. Enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of river pools, bird life, mountains and plantations from the privacy of the sheltered deck, or curl up in front of a cosy log fire indoors. Chalet facilities include a recreation room with satellite television and a sauna, swimming pool and an eight man jacuzzi that overhangs the river gorge.

B&B Chalets (Loerie, Galjoen, In the Forest, Alikreukel, Fern Cottage and Oyster Catcher)
The B&B chalets sleep two in either twin or king size luxury. Magnificent bathrooms have double basins and showers, as well as a bath perched in front of a large shuttered window, overlooking the river gorge. We do not have televisions in the B&B chalets as the general feeling is that they would disturb the peace and serenity of the magnificent setting.

B&B Family Chalets (Bluelily and Sunbird)
The family chalets are suited to families with children under 16 years as they sleep 4 people on an open plan basis – two upstairs in a loft and two downstairs, sharing a bathroom. These chalets have a fully equipped kitchenette and a television. Quoted prices are per chalet and the rate is inclusive of breakfast.

Luxury B&B Apartment Chalets (Porcupine / Francolin and Otter / Jacana)
The luxurious apartment chalets are the perfect choice for couples travelling together or for families with older children. They offer guests absolute privacy within their own en-suite area that includes a sitting room with cosy fireplace and flat screen television. The two en-suite rooms are joined by a well equipped kitchen with dining table that is perfect for joint socialising. These modern units are beautifully decorated and open onto a deck with a plunge pool and a view over the river.
