About Fairview Historic Homestead

Experience hospitality in a unique Cape Georgian historical home, set in a spectacular garden. The grounds on which Fairview stands was first registered in 1861 in the names of Messrs. Swemmer and Meyer, directors of the first bank in George. When these two gentlemen found themselves in financial difficulty in 1894, they sold the farm to Koos Stander - mayor of George from 1926 to 1932. In those days it was a big apple and cattle farm on the outskirts of George. By 1936 the farm still supported a substantial apple orchard, but was already surrounded by a number of subdivided smallholdings.

Today the fully restored historic homestead is a Guest House, centrally situated in Bergsig on grounds measuring 3800m˛. We are 8 km from closest beach, there are a number of golf courses nearby and it is a 50 minutes drive to Oudtshoorn, Mossel Bay & Knysna and 20 minutes to the airport.


Bed & Breakfast:
Rooms and suites come in all different sizes and shapes; all have a mix of contemporary and original features and come with flat screen TVs, DVD players, safes, bar fridges and coffee/tea making trays; all are en-suite. There are 6 rooms in the original historic homestead. Two rooms are on the ground floor, 34 m˛ in size with wooden floors, four-poster beds, Victorian fireplaces and high beamed ceilings. Two smaller rooms are upstairs with access via a beautiful wrought iron staircase. Another 34m˛ room is upstairs using the original stinkwood staircase. Then we have one small freestanding room in the garden below the swimming pool – built more than 150 years ago as a storeroom and restored in 2014, it is today used as a quaint economy guest room.

Luxury Self Catering Annex:
The luxury self catering apartment consists of 2 en-suite bedrooms, a lounge and fully equipped kitchen with laundry. The bathrooms are wheelchair friendly. It has a private patio with own small garden. We have a minimum stay of 2 days, but should you wish to make a booking for one night, you can always contact us – if possible we will try to make an exception if we can fit it in with existing bookings.
