All bedrooms are furnished with luxurious, comfortable and spacious beds to whisk you away into pleasant dreams each night. On-suite bathrooms are fully equipped with beautifully finished and spacious showers, soft white towels and majestic natural light. Each kitchen has been stocked with everything desired to satisfy the needs of every chef, cook or avid food lover, including an outside braai facility that would bring a tear to any South African braai aficionado.
While all the units cater to every whim, two have been specially furnished with an inside fireplace for the more romanticized heart. Snuggle up with your favorite book, or person, a glass of exquisitely crafted wine from the Misty Mountains Winery and soak up the relaxing ambiance in the warm orange glow from the burning embers of the crackling fire.
If the stunning views create too much nostalgia, let the rustic path take you on a slow and scenic journey towards our fully stocked cellar for a euphoric taste of liquid ambrosia. The award winning, Misty Mountains Sauvignon Blanc, Rose and Shiraz. If you are very lucky you will be able to taste the, soon to be released, exquisite ranges of MCC (Method Cap Classic) wines as well.
