We offer a wonderful country escape, the entire house is yours, and you will love the views from the veranda and light from the large glass windows. There are beautiful walks where you will see many species of buck, birds and other wild animals.

The space
Lakehouse is a small house on a 50 Ha farm, 12 kms from Howick with beautiful views of Midmar Dam. Sleeping 4 people, this is a perfect venue for a small family or couples. Lakehouse has 2 bedrooms which each have 2 single beds (that can be placed together), and 1 bathroom with a shower.
There is a fully equipped kitchen, a webber and a fireplace in the lounge, with ample wood provided. There is a veranda out the front and side, looking out on a spectacular view.

It is 150 meters from Lakehouse and please be aware it is unfenced.
