Rooms 1 and 2 are inside the historical 1906 main house, while the very spacious room 3, a wheelchair friendly room, is a standalone building with private entrance and veranda, with garden views.

The guest house is expanding and hopes to accommodate up to 8 guests in the near future.

The main attraction of Wakkerstroom is the birdlife, with grassland and wetland birds found in the region. Wakkerstroom is world renowned for birding specials, and hosts the South African Birdlife Centre. Experienced guides are available to take birders on guided drives or walks.

The Wakkerstroom area is steeped in history (the main section of DeKotzenhof Guest House was said to be built in 1906.) Many of the buildings have been restored to present a small quaint town revolving around churches, and where sheep, goats and horses are found grazing next to the houses.

Mountain bikers, dirt trail bikes, fisherman and hunters are also well catered for in the area. The scenery, sunsets and photo opportunities are fantastic. Art classes are held frequently for anyone wanting to brush up on their skills or learn from scratch.

The village is said to be one of the safest in the country, and hosts many holiday homes, where people go for weekends to get away from the city life. The necessities can be found in the village with a larger town just 27km away.
