Antbear Lodge, originally built in the 1940's and recently restored by sculptor Bruce Attwood, gets its name from the previous resident, who lived beneath the floor boards before restoration. Eccentrically refurbished using wood gathered in the surrounding valleys, the Antbear combines comfort with a unique environment.
Using a fifty-year-old outhouse for the basic framework, Bruce created a unique guesthouse and home in the rural hinterland of Kwazulu-Natal. The original structure which belonged to a farmer friend, consisted of two traditional rondavels, or thatch covered huts, connected by a stoep, or veranda with an overhead trellis. Perched on a kind of natural platform overlooking the bushman’s river, the house has panoramic views of the Drakensberg Mountains. Relax, enjoy the view, take walks around the farm and savor the delicious food prepared by Andrew and Conny. There is a lot to be seen and done in the area. Participate in the farm life, feed the calves or watch the milking. Drive up to Giants Castle, the Champagne valley or Mont Aux Sources. Walk in the Drakensberg on day trips or even stay in a cave overnight.
Honeymoon Couples: We have just the perfect place for a honeymoon. We are a small guesthouse and we let our guests feel welcome in quiet and private surroundings. We do have one really special room a touch more romantic than what most places call their honeymoon suites. It’s such that you can even have a candlelit bath sipping champagne with the bath right in the room. The room is eccentrically furnished with homemade bed and cupboards. We cook great food which is the finishing touch to a perfect honeymoon.
