Nestled at the base of the Lootsberg Pass you will find the enchanting Tweefontein Guest House. This historic house was renovated in late 2016 to pristine condition, whilst still keeping many of its original features including the amazing wood ceiling and parts of the floor.
Updated and fully equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher, gas/electric oven, microwave and DSTV, this lovely 4 bedroomed, 2 bathroomed house caters for 9 people comfortably.
Besides the large fully appointed kitchen the house boasts two lounges (one with fireplace) and a patio front and back including outside tables for a sunrise breakfast.
The nearby mountains will entice you to get your hiking shoes on, or you could simply do a little birdwatching atop the nearby dam wall whilst enjoying the tranquility that is the Karoo.
The guest house has fans for summer and heaters and a fireplace for winter - we do recommend you bring warm clothes as it does get very cold here on Blaauwater in winter.
Please note that the unit is non-smoking and no pets allowed.
There are two SANParks within range of Tweefontein. The Mountain Zebra National Park is approximately one hours drive (100 kms) on the R61 to Cradock and the Camdeboo National Park, on the outskirts of Graaff-Reinet, which includes the famous Valley of Desolation – 59 kms from Tweefontein on the N9.
Nieu Bethesda, well known for the Owl House is 40 kms from Tweefontein, either by way of a tarred road, or a well maintained gravel road which has a spectacular view of Compassberg.
