About Schaefers' Halt

Take a step back into a bygone era and stay at Schaefers' Halt's historic cottages, self-catering accommodation for stressed city dwellers looking for an authentic country experience. The property is located in the Dullstroom countryside and is a nature-lover's retreat. Accommodation consists of four cottages, and Schaefer's Halt also offers a country wedding and function venue.

The nearby, quaint town of Dullstroom gives a glimpse into village life, with its high street shopping and many restaurants and pubs. Treat yourself to a horse riding trip and then a session at the beauty therapy salon. Schaefers' Halt is close enough to take a day trip to the many tourist attractions in the area, and is an ideal stopover to the Kruger National Park and private game lodges in Mpumalanga. The Dullstroom area saw much action in the Anglo-Boer War and the Highland Battlefields can best be appreciated on a tour.

Art courses are held on the scenic property and the more adventurous can try fly-fishing in the four well-stocked small ponds, as well as river fishing. Birdwatching, walking, hiking and mountain biking can all be enjoyed on the farm, which boasts stunning views, waterfalls, birds and wild flowers.

Wedding Venues: The Barn at Schaefers' Halt is an affordable wedding and function venue seating up to 150 guests. This Dullstroom wedding venue is dedicated to the exclusive use of the wedding party for a weekend or two-night midweek wedding package.

Very friendly helpful owners . Neat and tidy cottageWith very thoughtful extras. Excellant for sml family with kids . We were 2 couples and would recommend a visit. Thankyou Only possible suggestion, Consider changing back room into a main on suite incorporating the back thunder box. The room could do with more airflow and open view of the majestic nature . The out door shower could be moved to the back of the house . Thankyou

We really enjoyed our time at Schaefer's Hallt, in Windsong. We were using it as accommodation for a friend's wedding nearby. Between the frenzy and noise of the prewedding party and the wedding, Windsong was a calm haven with absolutely stunning views. Drinking coffee on the patio overlooking the valley was a treat. There are a few minor improvements that would push this review to full 5 stars across the board. Some of the couches in the living area were not the most comfortable to sit on, the tv is a bit dated and small, and the water pressure was lacking slightly. That being said, we were...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Schaefer’s Halt. The cottage was well-equipped and private. We had a very warm welcome from Sharon & Trevor. Our dogs had a marvellous time too! We will definitely be back!

Thank you for an absolute treat of a stay! We really appreciated the warm welcome from Sharon and the little surprise birthday treats on the pillow. Only thing that could have made it better is the addition of a shower to the bathroom - especially after a cycle. 👌🏻

We loved the actual venue, just a heads up if you are not going to be doing you own dinners then it is a fair drive in the evening back after dinner BUT loved being out town and just in the country side which was so beautiful. The place was clean and comfortable and Trevor made sure we had whatever we needed. Highly recommended.
