About Lake Zonk

This charming cottage is located on the banks of Lake Zonk just outside of Mooi River and is ideal for a secluded getaway. The cottage has two bedrooms with double beds and a third bedroom with twin beds. There is a shared bathroom with a bath only.

The open-plan living area has a fireplace which is great on those chilly evenings. The cottage has a fully fitted kitchen as well as microwave. Outside is a partially under-cover patio with braai facilities, perfect for relaxing near the lake. There is a dart board for some friendly competition and entertainment.

The cottage is on a bass dam and a row boat is provided for some outdoor activity. The area is also great for mountain biking and fly fishing. The Giant’s Castle Nature Reserve is nearby with an abundance of rock art. Their restaurant is perfectly located for guests to view some endangered bird species busy feeding.

We loved the seclusion of the cottage and the panoramic views are truly beautiful. We would gladly come back again and again if we cold. Kayaking on the dam was really wonderful too. Just a note for heavier set guests, the bath is quite small and there is no shower. It may be tricky for larger guests to comfortably bathe.

We loved every aspect of this place. I would love to keep it a secret but this place is amazing for a family getaway that wants to enjoy some fishing, relaxing and family time! The entertainment area is well positioned and kitted for any event! Loved this place!! The only additional facility required is a shower to complete the layout and amenities!

We had a wonderful stay at Lake Zonk...it was so peaceful, and what a setting.. a beautiful comfortable cottage furnished with style, filled with everything you need for a self catering getaway, over looking a lake, nestled between the hills. We played board games, we went out on the kayak, we went for walks, we visited the cows, we napped, we drew and painted, we took lots of photos. It was so relaxing we didn't want to leave.

Not far along a dust road (dont let that deter you) you will find Lake Zonk. A beautiful out the way place where you wont find company for miles. Its a really well equipped cottage that's decorated really nicely. The loft in particular is awesome.You cant go wrong with this spot for a few days.
