Stone Mountain Lodge
Good news, as of February 2020 we have had rain, not enough to break the drought but the veld is green and the rivers are running. This means that, once again we can pump water from the spring to the lodge to fill not only the water tanks but also the pool.
More good news is that we have dropped the price from R3000.00 per night to R2000.00 per night, HOWEVER, there is now a minimum stay of 4 nights. We realise that this will rule out weekend visits but we have to cover the extremely high cost of servicing and maintaining a unique building in very remote spot.
Built from materials on hand and with lots of windows the stone mountain lodge has spectacular views over the Karroo and surrounding mountains.
Spend your days exploring the trails which lead you through picturesque gorges dotted with ancient cycads. Swim in icy mountain pools or simply relax on the luxurious couch in front of a roaring log fire.
You will be amazed by the luxuries to be found in this remote mountain wilderness , sprung mattresses and a pool, to mention a few.
Stone lodge sleeps seven in five singles and one double bed. While the double bed is located in its own private room, the other beds are situated on raised “annexes” off the main lodge living area. The lodge is serviced prior to your arrival – All linen and cooking utensils are supplied, you only need to take food and clothes.
Access is via a steep mountain road which requires a 4x4 with low range and diff lock. For those who do not own the appropriate vehicle, transfers are available from reception at no extra cost on weekdays.
Alternatively you could hike in via the Two Gorges hiking trail. The walk takes four to five hours in each direction. Slack packing is an option for a nominal fee.
Due to the high cost of servicing the lodge it is uneconomical for us to take bookings shorter than four nights.
