About Gumtree Manor

Nestled in the Klein Karoo, sandwiched between the Swartberg and Kammanassie Mountains, perched 15m above the waters of the Stompdrift Dam with awe inspiring views, this three bedroom timber cabin occupies a truly special corner of our planet.

Artists, writers and poets seeking inspiration will find it here. This cosy cabin is perfect for a romantic couples weekend yet spacious enough for a group of friends or a family of six.

Self Catering Accommodation

On entering the cabin the view will draw you past the very well equipped, open plan kitchen and dining room, through the comfortably furnished lounge, out onto the spacious, deeply shaded, outdoor living area.

The 'Karoo stoep' is where the full impact of the glorious views will literally take your breath away and leave you quite content to sink into the comfy outdoor furniture for the duration, after you fetch the cooler box of course.

The cabin is very comfortably furnished in a 'Cape Cod beach house' style and on one side of the living area is the luxurious, en suite master bedroom where you don't even need to get out of bed to enjoy that magnificent view through the glass sliding door opening onto the stoep.

On the opposite side is the guest wing with its own bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which also enjoys the view and access to the stoep through a glass slider. At the back, protected from the wind by the cabin itself and a half moon shade cloth screen, is a very social boma braai area.

To top it all there's a private staircase providing easy access to the water for swimming, fishing or boating.
