My husband and I spent 3 glorious days at Eagle's Nest. It was our honeymoon and will remain our anniversary getaway each year. The log cabin was homely and comfortable, the view was magnificent and we had a 'wow' moment each time we walked out onto the deck. It was quiet, peaceful and close to amenities. A definite must for nature and bush lovers. Thanks to Gary and Leda for a memorable stay.

We had an awesome stay at the Eagle's Nest Cottage. Gary is super-friendly and helpful. It is in a beautiful setting which is private yet still close to town should you need something. What a view! Keep it simple guys. Thanks for a great time!

The log cabin was rustic but very comfortable with everything you needed for self-catering. The view is awesome and there are many species of game on you doorstep. The staff were very friendly.

Mansfield is situated in a beautiful location on the Kowie River, very close to Port Alfred, and has a lot of wildlife! I was very impressed with the service and friendliness of the hosts and highly recommend it to anyone. The campsites are very neat and it's a great place for a family getaway! The platforms have wonderful views and are great for large groups!
