About EarthRise Mountain Lodge

EarthRise Mountain Lodge lies about 20 kms outside of Ficksburg in a secluded valley in the heart of cherry growing district of the Eastern Free State - a dramatic landscape of sheer sandstone cliffs and gentle green slopes scattered with an abundance of wild flowers.

We are surrounded by an area of exceptional beauty with caves and waterfalls to explore, dams to fish in and walking trails to please everyone from the casual stroller to the serious hiker. The lodge is very pet friendly - as long as your pet is pet friendly…

Accommodation

We provide an intimate, easy going, family friendly lodge which appeals to all generations. The heart of the lodge is a charming, thatched sandstone building where guests can relax at the bar or enjoy a delicious meal; Thai food is the house specialty but we cater to all tastes.

On the cooler evenings, a roaring log fire creates the perfect atmosphere for an evening of games or music and many guests find themselves getting to know strangers who end up as enduring friends.

The bedrooms are situated in the old farmhouse which is attached to the lodge and each has its own access to our beautiful gardens which are home to a menagerie of creatures including tortoises, cats, dogs, horses and a pot bellied pig called Lily.

Facilities

Up behind the guest buildings is a spectacular, sandstone edged swimming pool-with-a-view where lunches can be served in summer. The pool area is enclosed, so parents can relax, knowing that their children are safe.

In the evenings we fire up our African Steam Hut where you can detox and take a dip under our dazzling starlit night skies.

The lodge offers a variety of holistic treatments and therapies, among them; reiki, aromatherapy massage, hypnotherapy, reflexology, hot stone massage.

Verified reviewfair

To improve your accommodation the following items have to be addressed: 1. Bed side tables and bed side light were not existing 2. The showers are not well built, the water is running out of the place to the wood floor 3. There is no fan or air condition. On the summer is terrible hot and we assume on the winter it will very cold without any air condition. 4. The rooms were not cleaned properly and during the time we were there no cleaning was done. The venue people is very helpful and very pleasant. The food is also good.
