Relaxed getaway
Carmen Heidemann, South Africa - 09 January 2017
3 nights at the lodge was perfect. Was very relaxing. We had everything we needed in the log cabin. Perfect place to get away and forget about the city.
We hope to be back soon.

My family and I enjoyed our stay but the flies and bugs are a problem.
Amazing little guest lodge

What an awesome place to stay at. The rooms were neat and tidy and the owners are so accommodating and friend. Would definitely recommend them.
Great Place
Melanie Dateling, South Africa - 05 May 2016

We spent a week at Big Creek , on arrival we were worried that it seems there's not much to do however  it was glorious, we really spent a lot of quality family time. It was so relaxing and refreshing.

The kids fished and we had a great family bike rides and walks up the mountain and around the beautiful property.

The owners and staff are all so friendly and helpful.

Really a great place to just relax and get in touch with your family yourself and nature. 

Thank you!

I just want to thank Arno at Big Creek Lodge.  Me and my husband enjoyed our stay.  We had an awesome time there.  We enjoyed the log cabin very much.  We also enjoyed our swim in the small pool.  The big bed was also very comfortable.  At night we made a fire and had a nice braai.  I asked Arno for some fire wood and when we got at our cabin, it was already on the braai.  The cabin was very neat and clean.  Tank you for your hospitality,

We had the best time staying at Big Creek over Easter Weekend 2015. Wonderful friendly service and great accomodation! Big Creek and Magalies would definitely see us again in the near future. Dillon, Nicola & Juan du Preez
Lovely weekend break
Robyn Edwards, South Africa - 07 April 2015
Had a pleasant stay at Big Creek this past weekend. Arno is very helpful and always on hand for any assistance which is great. The chalets are clean and the view of the mountains is beautiful. Only thing is that I would advise Arno to possibly install a kid's park/ jungle gym, this lodge is very family friendly but with only the pool to keep the kids busy it's quite a challenge to keep them entertained. Thanks.

We enjoyed our stay at Big Creek very much even with the power being off. Thanks to Arno and family for being very accommodating hosts. Big Creek is quiet, clean and rustic, the ideal place to use as a base for Magaliesberg or for someone to just chill.
Excellent Hideaway
Hendrehet Stone, South Africa - 03 November 2014
We had a very pleasant stay at Big Creek Guest Lodge. With my partner having breast cancer, she just needed some quite rest away from everything and Big Creek was perfect. The cabin was very clean and neat, the first place we stayed in a long time that doesn't have spiders under the bed. We really enjoyed every moment there. Thank you to the owner, Thomas was also very friendly and helpful with two lady's getting lost on the road the whole time. Thank you to everyone at Big Creek Guest Lodge, we will most certainly return for more relaxing rest at your Lodge.

A great experience we had, tranquility is how I describe the place, the host Arno was also very welcoming. Thanks for a great weekend, wouldn't mind visiting again.
Ralaxed stay
Jacqui Malepeng, South Africa - 25 August 2014
A place to unwind and relax, friendly crew. Really feel refreshed. It's unfortunate our stay was short, it would have been great to stay longer, which is what we will do next time.
Great Stay

Family weekend away

We had such a lovely time. Arno is friendly and helpful and the lodge is really great! My only complaint would be that the units are not serviced.
Awesome Easter

Relaxing stay

Awesome family getaway
Alexia de Beer, South Africa - 08 October 2013
Awesome experience, friendly host, perfect family spot, and a lovely laid-back environment, and the kids had loads of space to run and play freely.
Mediocre experience
Jyothi Reddy, South Africa - 18 June 2013
10 out of 10 for the rooms being clean. We had the family unit - I was expecting something similar to the pictures on this website but we got 2 interleading rooms, with a view of the wall separating us from the pub. You enter into the one room which serves as a bedroom and kitchen, with the second room leading off from the kitchen side, and 2 single beds in each room. there is no space for a table/ chairs (2 barstools and high table present) so we ate sitting on the beds because it was too cold to sit outside - which had a table but only 2 chairs. this would be awkward for a family of 4, for sure. there were no oven or microwavable dishes. Not sure if this is not done anymore but there was no soap to wash your hands in the bathroom. the hosts were friendly. For the price we paid, this was not really what I was expecting. Not a place to relax for the day. Its great if you want a clean place with friendly hosts to sleep, shower and head out.
Our experience
Jonelda Sutherland, South Africa - 25 February 2013
We had a pleasant, peaceful experience.
Holly Swanepoel - 14 January 2013
Relaxing, peaceful, quiet. There was ample hot water, little things like a wine opener and diswashing liquid were thought of. They even had the aircon on so we arrived to a cool cabin which was lovely. We had a drink with Arno in the bar, he's a wonderful host. Will definitely return. Thank you.
Awesome time
Emma Roberts, South Africa - 29 October 2012
What an awesome time my girls and I had at Big Creek Lodge. The warmth and hospitality from Arno and Willie was lovely. We had a beautiful time and will definitely be back.
Lovely place to stay
Sarah Jones, South Africa - 10 September 2012
The scenery is beautiful, the people are very friendly, it has the most wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. My only criticism would be that the beds were uncomfortable. But that said, I would definitely go back.
Peaceful and private
Lucinda George, South Africa - 04 January 2012

Excellent venue to get together with friends. You have your own privacy when the fun is over.
Reagan Matthews, South Africa - 27 September 2011
We had a lovely time. Definitely will stay there again. It is breathtaking. Thanks to the staff at Big Creek. You made us feel at home.
A lovely place!

We had a great time at Big Creek! The friendly people and peaceful surroundings made for a great getaway from the rat race in Johannesburg. Thank you so much for that personal touch. Would recommend anytime!
