The Free State gladdens my heart, no matter what my mood. When I am here I feel that nothing can shut me in, that my thoughts can roam as far as the horizons." - Nelson Mandela. EarthRise Mountain Lodge lies in a secluded valley in the heart of cherry growing district of the Eastern Free State - a dramatic landscape of sheer sandstone cliffs and gentle green slopes scattered with an abundance of wild flowers.

The heart of the lodge is a charming, thatched sandstone building where guests can relax at the bar or enjoy a delicious meal; Thai food is the house speciality. On the cooler evenings, a roaring log fire creates the perfect atmosphere for an evening of games or music and many guests find themselves getting to know strangers who end up as enduring friends. The bedrooms are situated in the old farmhouse which is attached to the lodge and each has its own access to our beautiful gardens which are home to a menagerie of creatures including tortoises, sheep, cats, dogs, horses  and a pot bellied pig called Lily. Up behind the guest buildings is a spectacular, sandstone edged swimming pool-with-a-view where lunches can be served in summer. In the evenings we fire up our African Steam Hut where you can detox and take a dip in a truly remarkable setting.
