Accommodation

This family run self-catering lodge has four units and can accommodate up to 18 guests.  Each comfortable unit has an en suite bathroom (basin, shower and toilet) connected to the ground floor bedroom. Each unit has its own fireplace in the ground floor bedroom. The communal living areas include the kitchen, braai areas, bar, lounge and verandas.

The communal living areas and units are cleaned daily. Wood is provided for the fireplaces and the braai areas. Linen and towels are provided.

Unit 1: 1 x queen size bed in ground floor bedroom, 2 x ¾ beds in the upstairs bedroom
Unit 2: 1 x queen size bed in ground floor bedroom, 3 x ¾ beds upstairs in upstairs bedroom
Unit 3: 1 x queen size bed in ground floor bedroom, 3 x ¾ beds upstairs in upstairs bedroom
Unit 4: 1 x queen size bed in ground floor bedroom, 2 x ¾ beds in the upstairs bedroom

Please note that there are fairly steep stairs leading from the ground floor rooms to the upstairs rooms. This should be taken into consideration when booking for elderly guests and families with young children.

Energy sources: solar power and gas geysers.
Boschfontein Mountain Lodge is completely off grid and uses a modest solar system. Solar power provides electricity to power the lights, medium sized fridge-freezer and the two plug points for charging cell phones. The two plug points are in the kitchen and outdoor braai area. There aren’t any plug points in the bedrooms. You will not find an oven, microwave, toaster, electric slow cooker, air fryer or hairdryer at the lodge as they use more electricity than what the solar system can support. We ask our guests not to connect electrical devices that use a lot of power. 

The kitchen is equipped with a medium sized fridge and freezer, two plate gas stove, indoor braai, kettles for the gas stove, pots, pans, potjie pot, braai grids, cutlery and crockery.

There is a gravel road (about 3.5km) from the tar road to the lodge. Low clearance vehicles (e.g. VW Polo) may struggle to get to the lodge.
