From the moment you arrive until you are "forced" to... read more leave the views from almost every room and entertainment areas are constantly changing. The swimming pool deck and jacuzzi are overlooking the entire town of Knysna and the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. The attention to detail makes the lodge a self catering paradise. The bedrooms are exceptional, comfortable beds and even outdoor showers. We even stayed an extra night because it was so hard too leave. A great place to relax and unwind with your family, group of friends or just a romantic getaway. If you are looking for someplace really special, this is it.
Probably one of the most special places Knysna has to offer. We had a birthday lunch and an overnight stay that was straight out of heaven!
Food totally delicious... read more and well the rooms and the views are breathtaking !!!

There are so many activities to enjoy in Brenton and Knysna and each day started for my family with wake-boarding on the lagoon followed by a delicious champagne breakfast back at the Lodge. We were so well looked after and can't wait to visit again. It was a most memorable holiday
