  • Important Information
Along the road less travelled and nestled in the southern tip of the Drakensberg, lies the quaint village of Rhodes. It is easy to fall in love with the charm and tranquillity of a village that has been declared a National Heritage Site. With its 85 odd buildings including the post office, library and church, one is transported back in time.

Dog's Folly is conveniently situated on the main gravel road, Muller Street, and opposite the Rhodes Hotel. With its wooden flooring, original doors and sash windows, you relive the old-world charm combined with the comfort of modern luxuries.

The house has four beautiful bedrooms, each fitted with electric blankets. Warm blankets are stored in a blanket box at the foot of each bed, whilst quilts provide a cover for those slightly chilly nights. Panel heaters are installed throughout to take the edge off during snow-filled winters.

In the lounge area, the original fireplace stands proud and is a reminder of how many a folk have warmed up in its presence. A DStv bouquet with 10 channels is available. The dining room seats eight guests comfortably and the kitchen is fully equipped. The house is serviced daily and laundry can be done at a small fee.

7 Reviews on Dog's Folly

We enjoyed our stay at Dog's Folly. It has a well appointed interior with good linens and is well appointed in general. The one criticism that we have is that the lounge area requires more facilities for heating in winter. The Victorian fireplace is pretty but not efficient in heating the spacious area. A portable heater of sorts would add to comfort in winter. However the bedrooms are very warm and cosy with wall heaters that work well and electric underblankets. Fabulous showers! Thanks for the pleasant stay. Margie & Americo Afonso

Dog's Folly is a clean place and definitely worth staying over in. Grocer is opposite the house and also a very interesting "craft shop".

Loved this house - warm, cosy, beautifully restored and furnished. Ideal for a large group with 3 lovely bathrooms and well equipped kitchen. Would love to return.
