NESTLED IN THE FORESTS OF THE GROENLANDBERG CONSERVANCY
Stonepeak Mountain Lodge & Stud now offers you three home away from home choices of accommodation with a variety of options in the magnificent Elgin Valley.
We pride ourselves on our organic apples, vegetables and herbs as well as our magnificent breeding warmblood horses. We are eco-friendly and do not spray any pesticides or use any poisons on our farm whatsoever. We prefer to be as self sufficient as possible and low impact on the environment which means we re-cycle, re-use and try to offer a back to basics approach to our farm, meaning we hope guests will make use of the magnificent garden, read our books, swim in our pool, go for lovely walks in the area, and play some of the games on offer. Reception is good at the farm but we do not offer Wi-fi or TV.
Choose from the traditional “Out of Africa farmhouse” with its large rooms with wooden floors, leather couches and antiques setting the tone for this magnificent historical farmstead on Chosen Farm.
Alternatively we now have two new additions to our accommodation “stable”, namely the newly renovated “Up~cycled Green Cottage” which is a more rustic one bedroomed family cottage and the smaller but innovative “Pallet Pad” which is either a bed sit or can be a family unit when combined with the “Outside Room”.
THE HISTORICAL “OUT OF AFRICA FARMHOUSE”
THE “UP~CYCLED GREEN COTTAGE”
THE “PALLET PAD”
Centrally located opposite Oude Molen Distillery on the edge of Grabouw, the Lodge is within easy access of some of the best mountain biking and hiking trails in the Western Cape, near most of the wedding venues, top restaurants, wine farms and farm stalls.
The latest adventure craze in the valley is only 15 minutes drive to the Cape Canopy Tours zip line which offers mind blowing views of the area, and the Eikenhof Dam at the Elgin Country Club is ideal for SUPing,swimming, picnics or quad biking. The new Elgin Railway Market which is the first of its kind and can be visited utilising the iconic steam train from Cape Town harbour is definitely worth a visit.
LARGE KING BEDROOM WITH EN-SUITE BATHROOM IN THE OUT OF AFRICA FARMHOUSE
The Out Of Africa Farmhouse sleeps four in the main house in two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and an Outside Room can be added to the booking to sleep another two to three. It offers a full self catering eat in kitchen with large lounge with fireplace and dining room as well as a covered veranda and pool in the garden.
The Up~Cycled Green Cottage has been recently renovated and is a rustic cottage which can sleep a family of four sharing in a single bedroom and an sleeper couch in the lounge. It has an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen with bar counter. All linen including bath towels are supplied. Self catering open plan kitchen has a fridge, microwave, gas hotplates, cutlery and crockery. It has been mostly recycled and a classic white picket fence made from upcycled pallets surrounds the cottage.
The brand new “Pallet Pad” is a recently converted space utilising recycled pallets for the walls, beds, kitchen and a charming outside enclosed shower. This bedsit sleeps two but can be enlarged by adding the “Outside Room” to sleep another two people. This unit has a small kitchen with basic facilities including microwave/oven, fridge, and two hotplates.
