We stayed in the Samango Cottage. Fully equipped, secluded from other people and wonderful view. My daughter said it reminded her of Heidi's place in the mountains. The indigenous forest is just behind the cottage - and we were awakened by the biggest variety of bird calls ever! Apart from all this peacefulness and beauty we felt SAFE. No locking doors all the time or watching over one's shoulder. Our two dogs enjoyed their stay as much. They enjoyed the open grass area and all the walks in the forest. And of course Pepper Pot - the owner's one dog. They had a ball of a time playing together. My son did all the MBT in the vicinity - Karkloof, Howick trail and The Cascade in Pietermaritzburg. If you get up early it is worth taking a day trip to the sea side. We enjoyed all the Arts and Crafts little shops and had lovely pizzas at Il Postino Pizzeria. We found the people of this area very tranquil, unhurried, friendly, helpful and easygoing. And then of course. Our host Katie! It is hard to find someone with such passion for the Dargle, Lemonwood, nature and the environment. She let us feel welcome since we arrived. Her inviting and friendly manner makes her a great human being. Without a doubt - Katie and Lemonwood will see us again.

Dassie is a lovely , comfortable well equipped cottage for 2. Everything is immaculate and Katie ensures that one enjoys the stay. Anyone who enjoys Birding as we, do would really enjoy the number of birds one can see without any effort. It is also close enough to the Meander as well as Howick. Highly recommend a stay there.
