Fantastic night's stay
Warren Rees - 25 January 2017
My girlfriend and I spent Saturday night in the Browns Cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The welcome was warm and inviting, the accommodation was great and all the small things that other accommodation don't think of made the evening. The road getting into and out of the establishment was also easily negotiationed by my small hatchback. We will definitely be going back.
Quaint and quiet
karen enslin, South Africa - 01 January 2017
Browns is a quaint, rustic, antiquely typical farmhouse cottage nestled at the end of a long driveway amongst rows of pecan nut trees that shroud the majestic mountains of Magaliesburg, and offers an abundance of tranquility. The unit sports all the basics with beautiful bedding and lovely towels. Helen and David are unobtrusively nearby and gracious hosts.
Relaxing stay!
Donovan Booth, South Africa - 01 November 2016
We had a very relaxing one night stay in the De Wet Cottage. Neat accommodation and has everything needed. Will definitely recommend this to friends.
Amazing stay at Browns!
Bennie Grobler, South Africa - 19 September 2016
"We regularly travel for weekends away and have been received warmly by our hosts. However, nothing could have prepared us for the sheer delight and love that greeted us upon our arrival at Browns Cabin and Cottages. Our hosts are of the kindest and most welcoming that we have ever encountered. NOTHING is too much trouble and they go to extra lengths to ensure that their guests are comfortable, happy and relaxed. The accommodation is truly beautiful with personal touches introduced into the decor and the setting and scenery is breathtaking. We would highly recommend Browns Cabin and Cottages to travellers wanting to be enveloped in luxury accommodation, attentive hosts and picturesque scenery."

Beautiful Browns Cabins
James Bradley, South Africa - 27 June 2016
We only stayed for one night and didn't get much time to stay but we regret not having more time there as it was an amazing accommodation and definitely hope to be back sometime soon.

Donsie Terblanche, South Africa - 23 November 2015
We had an amazing stay at Browns for a family wedding at Leopard Lodge, which was only about 2km away! Very neat, clean and nicely decorated! We stayed as a family at De wets Cottage and Pecan which is ideal traveling as a a group! Robin, the owner is also very friendly and helpful at all times!! Beautifull setting and relaxed!! Will definitely visit again and will highly recommend Browns!

Resent stay
Anri Van Gessellen, South Africa - 05 July 2015
a stunningly laid out cabins with a heartfelt feeling of welcome, planning on going back in the summer to go and see the contrast diffference of summer on the whole place. It is well worth the visit and make it a weekend, overnight just isn't enough.
Real Value
Jana Zaaiman, South Africa - 13 April 2015

What a surprise finding Brown's Cabin & Cottage amongst a pecan nut plantation.  Our cabin had a lovely view and would definitely recommend it to people passing by or people who would like to spend a weekend in the Harties area.  We felt very safe as well. 

Value for Money
Hugo van der Walt, South Africa - 19 October 2014
We had such a lovely stay at Browns, close to all the tourist attractions as well as a lot of wedding venues in the area. Helen and the team goes over and above expectations to make you feel at home. The rooms are beautifully put together with a country modern feel. Situated in the peaceful surroundings of the Magaliesberg mountains. Ideal for people that are coming for weddings, who love nature, adventure sports, or just to break away from the Rat Race. I am a trail runner and Browns is 2km away from Van Gaalens Trails, that has over 100km of trails. We will definitely be back in the near future!
Michael Vorster, South Africa - 02 October 2014
We had such a lovely time. The place is well looked after, and we enjoyed the stay immensely.
Very nice!
Carene Wessels, South Africa - 24 August 2014
Everything was just perfect: a warm welcome and clean accommodation. Would love to have stayed one more night! Very close to many attractions. Will certainly stay at Browns again.
Liana Joubert, South Africa - 21 July 2014
The suite is beautifully decorated, every need possible is catered for and the reception friendly even past midnight. Would have loved to be able to stay longer.
Cathy Pittich, South Africa - 02 July 2014
We had a lovely restful stay at Browns. Hosts are warm and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.
Will definitely be back
Elsabie boersma, South Africa - 24 March 2014
We had a great time, even though we only stayed one night as they were fully booked. Will definitely go back again for a weekend and stay in Pecan Cottage. Helen as well as Robin were both lovely people and I will definitely recommend Browns Cabin.
Thank you
Debbie Strydom, South Africa - 09 September 2013
Thanks for an enjoyable weekend. Place is very quiet and neat. I like that it is so close to all the places of interest a round Harties area. Will love to do it again. The only thing I would have liked is a breakfast serves on the premises. Otherwise it was perfect for me.

Weekend At Browns
David Playford, South Africa - 08 May 2012
We stayed at Browns Cottage over the weekend when we travelled up from Durban to see Michael Buble at Sun City. We found David and Helen to be very hospitable and they made sure we had all we needed. Should we come up that way again we will definitely stay there again. Ideal for a peaceful get-away-from-it-all break. Thanks.

Compact and modern
Liz Valentine, South Africa - 01 August 2011
We had a very comfortable stay at Browns. I really liked the funky modern décor and was happy in the Pecan Cottage. It is very central to anything in Hartebeespoor. Lovely to relax at and just look at the mountain and the view.
A great stay!

A weekend to remember
Anonymous, South Africa - 01 January 2011
Even though this review should have been posted roughly 2 years ago already, I just had to add a review as our stay at Browns Cabin was such a memorable time for my husband and I (rather late than never). We were lucky enough to visit the Cabin during the most beautiful wet weather, which transformed the landscape into the most beautiful green I've ever seen and added in the tranquility it has to offer. Everything was perfect, from friendly hosts to perfect decor and amazing views. I would recommend Browns Cabin to anyone who wants to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life for a few days. The Cabin was affordable and exceeded my expectations and I would love to go back there someday.

Absolutely stunning place
Taryn Warne, South Africa - 17 November 2008
My husband and I and the kids had a wonderful time at the Cabin, it was beautiful. We went there for 1 night for our 5yr wedding anniversary. So peaceful and relaxing with stunning views. The cabin is lovely, comfortable and so beautifully decorated! Everything was so clean and fresh, nice linen and towels, and nice little "extra's" were provided like bubble bath and Valpre water's in the fridge. It was very special. Definitely will go there again.
The Perfect Breakaway
Anonymous, South Africa - 09 November 2008
Our stay at Browns Cabin was absolutely fantastic. I at first didn't know what to expect and was a little nervous about what we would find since I planned the night as a surprise for my boyfriend. What we found took our breath away, it is located on the most beautiful pecan nut farm with the best view on the Magalies mountains. The cabin itself is a modern, yet very romantic little destination with everything you need and friendly hosts ready to assist you with whatever you need. We can't complain about anything, our stay was fantastic and we would definitely do it again. It is a safe destination (safer that the average South African destination, we do live in South Africa, never forget that), considering we forgot our fondue outside on the stoep the whole night and it was still there the next morning. I'd recommend Browns Cabin to anyone and we can't wait to go back for a night or two.
Ware Suid-Afrikaanse Gasvryheid
louise dingelstad, South Africa - 20 October 2008
Sjoe, die Browns het regtig ekstra moeite gedoen om ons te laat welkom voel. Die linne was kraakvars en pragtig. Ons het heerlik op die stoep gesit en eet. Ons kannie nie glo ons was eintlik so naby aan die stad nie. Baie dankie vir 'n heerlike blaaskans.
The cabin is very romantic.
monet van staden, South Africa - 21 July 2008
The small detail, such as Lint chocolate on the pillow really makes the stay just extra special, and the mood is of relaxation and calmness. The cabin is a treasure in this country and we can't wait to go there again.
Allan Janse van Rensburg, South Africa - 14 July 2008
It was a great breakaway from the city life and the cabin is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone.
Hosts were fantastic.
Sara Spiro, South Africa - 17 June 2008
So friendly and warm. Nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was beautifully decorated and there was meticulous attention to detail. Lovely touches, such as scented candles, luxury soaps and extra blankets. Would have been great, though, to have a shower rather than/in addition to a bath.
