Escape to the tranquil and serene Forest Cottage, nestled within the picturesque gorge of the Steinkampburg Mountains. This self-catering haven provides the perfect escape from the stresses of modern life. Located in Dullstroom, a renowned destination for hotels, accommodation, and lodges, Forest Cottage offers a unique blend of rustic charm and modern comfort.
As you arrive at the gate of Forest Creek Lodge, leave behind the rock-strewn grassland and embark on a magical journey up into this enchanting world. Just 500 meters away from the main lodge area, this cozy wooden cottage is surrounded by the beauty of the indigenous forest, with the soothing sound of a nearby stream and breathtaking mountain views.
Step inside the cottage and be greeted by a warm fireplace in the lounge, where we provide firewood for your comfort. The fully equipped kitchen allows you to prepare your own meals, while the open-plan layout adds a touch of romance with candles and bubbles. The cottage features a queen-size bedroom with an en-suite bath and toilet, a smaller bedroom with a single bed, and a double sleeper couch in the lounge, making it ideal for couples with small children or a romantic hideaway.
Nature lovers will be in awe of the incredible bird-watching opportunities at Forest Cottage. Discover rare species such as the Knysna loerie, Cinnamon dove, and Narina trogon from our tree house nestled high in the canopy of the forest. For those with a passion for trees, explore the inter-zonal malaria-free habitat and identify uncommon species of trees, shrubs, orchids, and ferns.
Indulge in a bush bath, surrounded by bubbles and tranquility, or embark on a hike through marked trails that lead to a stunning waterfall. For a unique experience, try your hand at clay pigeon shooting, a thrilling activity for both beginners and experienced shooters.
