About John Jack Inn

John Jack Inn is located in the quaint village of Chrissiesmeer (Lake Chrissie) in Mpumalanga, approximately 2.5 hours drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Chrissiesmeer is at the centre of South Africa's largest lake district with some 270 lakes and pans located within a 20 km radius of the village.

John Jack Inn offers bed and breakfast accommodation in six en-suite bedrooms. The inn has a rich history; John Jack and his partner, August Simmer came from Durban to Lake Chrissie in 1882 where they then erected various buildings including stables, a small hotel and a gin depot. Two oak trees planted in front of the Inn in 1886 remain.

The Breakfast Café

The Breakfast Café is attached to the McCloud's shop which occupies one of the most historic buildings in the Chrissiesmeer village, the Bothwell Mill (1880). The Café has Wi-Fi internet and a good selection of second hand books.

We have an interesting selection of aromatic coffees from South African roasters ranging from single origin (such as Ethiopian or Ugandan) to blends (like the Zimbabwean and Guatemalan blend). Patrons can 'build' their own breakfasts with our selection of side items. The chef’s special for lunch changes daily and will always be a pleasant surprise.
