About The Fernery Lodge & Chalets

Imagine sitting above a 30-metre waterfall, with breath-taking views of a river gorge and the wild Indian Ocean. This is the setting of The Fernery Lodge. It is hard to decide whether to admire the incredible surroundings from the Lodge's deck area with the swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, or to enjoy it from any one of the six deluxe suites.

Each suite is tastefully decorated and every effort has been made to ensure our guests' comfort, from DSTV and an en-suite bathroom to a private deck with beautiful views. For complete opulence, try The Honeymoon Suite with its luxurious spa bath. At the end of a tough day relaxing, guests can wander through our wine cellar and select a bottle of wine before making their way to the Cellar Dining Room for excellent cuisine and an equally enjoyable atmosphere. Children are welcome in the Chalets, but regrettably no children under the age of 12 years are permitted in the Lodge and dinner restaurant due to its ambiance.

The Chalets - beautiful and secluded. Experience the Tsitsikmma as if you were the first to discover it. There are both B&B and self-catering chalets, each beautifully appointed and privately located, so you can enjoy a peaceful paradise experience. Relax in nature and treat your soul to views of mystical waterfalls, rock pools and the vast Indian Ocean.

The B&B chalets sleep two in either twin or king size luxury, whereas the self-catering chalets sleep four and have fully equipped kitchenettes, making them ideal for families - or choose one of the plush twin chalets (ideal for two couples) which offer en-suite bathrooms and private lounges, fully equipped kitchen and a private plunge pool on the deck. All the chalets are beautifully decorated and each chalet has a unique theme inspired by its magnificent surroundings. Enjoy the tranquillity of the mountains and forests from the privacy of the sheltered deck or curl up in front of the cosy ceramic fireplace with a good book. End the evening with a barbecue on your deck - simply arrange beforehand and you will be provided with everything from the ingredients to the Weber.

Facilities: An entertainment area with dart board, satellite television and sauna, as well as a swimming pool, is at the guests’ disposal. A large Jacuzzi, perched on the edge of the river gorge, is a favourite with our guests, and can be enjoyed with a bottle of wine or champagne.

                          Some of the best views in the Garden Route. Restaurant and staff are excellent.

                          We really enjoyed our time away here. The chalets are great, bathrooms amazing with views... champagne bathtub ocean-view setting. They have thought of everything. There's even a bird hide overlooking a little lake where there are boats that you can paddle out in. The dining area is a bit staid and dry and could use a bit of a chipper to hack out the ice. Otherwise a great break and will certainly go back.

                          The lodge has the perfect setting. The views were amazing, and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed our stay.

                          A wonderful long weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for all the friendly staff. Great accommodation with the nicest little extras - chocolates and a welcome note - that just added to the great experience. We will recommend The Fernery to everyone. Thank you so much.

                          South Africa’s most frequently hiked trail is so popular that bookings need to be made at least a year in advance – but don’t let that stop you. The dramatic setting of luxuriant Tsitsikamma forest meeting the rugged Indian Ocean coastline in the...
