About Rivers Own Guest Lodge

Rivers Own Guest Lodge (sleeps ten guests) in the Mount Bain Reserve is a rare gem waiting to be enjoyed by anyone who makes the short one hour, 20 minute trip from Cape Town to this exquisitely appointed river side getaway.

The river itself is your private part of what is the clearest and cleanest water in the country, flowing directly from the surrounding mountains which carry the invigorating stillness and energy so craved for by those hungry for an enriching time out, or holiday.

Accommodation

There are five bedrooms, three of which have double beds and an en-suite bathroom. The fourth room has a double bed, two single beds, a couch for a child to sleep on and access to the shared bathroom. the fifth bedroom has a double bed, two single beds and an en-suite bathroom.

The layout is very open plan, you enter the house with the living room area to your left and the kitchen to your right, the sunken kids room directly passed the living room and the extra bathroom beyond the fully kitchen.

There is a covered outdoor seating area. The pool area is centrally located in front of all the bedroom entrances and the outdoor seating area overlooks the pool too. There is a braai area, pizza oven and rotisserie / spit braai set up, all alongside the pool.

Activities

Within 15 minutes you can be wine tasting, kloofing, hiking, trail running, mountain biking and just 30 minutes away you can pick cherries or play in the snow (winter). Even with all these activities so close by, Rivers Own somehow captivates many guests who realise at the end of their stay they had no need to move once they were pulled into the spell of the river and its serene banks that demand all day picnics.

Boys weekend away saying goodbye to a friend moving overseas. All I can say, is that the guest lodge was pure magic - the most incredible weekend away we have had in a long time. The area/scenery you cannot beat - your own river, mountains, large grass area to play some soccer or cricket, etc on. The lodge has everything thing you need for self catering and more, everything is well maintained. Having a massive braai inside and outside, and having a big fireplace for 'atmosvuur' and warmth inside was everything we could of hoped for. Take a dip in the lake, swim in the sparkling pool and then chill in the wood fired hot tub. Extra touches include aircons in all rooms and also electric blankets on all the beds. Never ran out of hot water and the water pressure is excellent for showers. The amount of wood you get for your stay - will never run out and is most generous. From all 11 of us boys we will remember the weekend for the rest of our lives, we will definitely be back sooner than later :)

Verified reviewvery good

We had a really great time at Rivers Own. What an exceptional setting for the lodge. Mountains, water and greenery, what more can you want on a break from city life. We loved it there, the peace and quiet, waking to the sound of birdsong, the gurgling river and the wind whistling through the trees made for a remarkable three days. It was probably the most relaxing and tranquil time I've had in a very long. None of us missed the TV,laptops were not even opened and phones were used to the minimum. And that in itself says something about the place. Also, the manager(?) Hassan was a great help.Always willing to help with a smile and friendly too.
