About A Little House @ The Lakes
A Little House @ the Lakes is situated next to Langvlei, 7km out of Wilderness towards Knysna - please be our guest and come and enjoy this lovely cottage in the lakes district.
Across the road is the national park with all that is offered. To the east of the house (1200m) it the one of the best bird hides in the area - the Malachite. You can take your binoculars and a cup of coffee and spend a morning watching water birds. To the west is the Duiwerivier with two hiking trails starting - one leads to a waterfall where you can enjoy a picnic and the forest. Island Lake with all its water sports and fishing is only 3 min drive.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all beautifully decorated. There is a fully equipped kitchen and 2 braai areas (inside & out) and everything else needed to make your stay a comfortable and pleasant experience. All you need to bring is clothes and food (bedding & towels are provided).
The bedrooms are simple yet stylishly decorated, the bedding is quality linen and you will be able to relax in style in this quiet part of nature. The house is situated on a smallholding and is very private, yet safe. The cottage is cosy and quiet and you can really enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Wilderness National Park, bordering the property. Yet, the N2 is only 5 min drive and then you’re on route to Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, George or Mossel Bay.
Outside you enjoy the sunset with the ducks coming back at the end of day to Langvlei, or the sunrise with the fish eagle out on a early morning hunt, you’ll realise how special it is to be away from the city.
Wilderness National Park
ATTRACTIONS & ACTIVITIES:
The beaches are only 5-15 min drive, depending on where you want to swim. Swartvlei (Sedgefield) and Victoria Bay are very close and we often swim there if you get tired of Wilderness’s beach. The Garden Route Mall in George is only 18km’s (20min) no robots and only one stop street from the house to there.
A Little House @ the Lakes is only 30 min from Knysna and an hour from Oudtshoorn. So you can explore the Garden Route from your location. We are willing to assist with travel plans in the area (e.g Oudshoorn)
There is more that enough to do nearby - especially if you enjoy nature. The 5 hiking trails, bird hides & bike rides is an experience not to be missed. The Knysna Loerie and Fish Eagle will wake you in the morning and if you look out over the lake, you will see the sun rise over the mountains and realise you’re on a well deserved break.
