The Studio @ Mount View Lodge is a spacious upmarket off-the-grid pet-friendly self-catering studio designed to sit unobtrusively in a rural setting. The setting is quiet, safe and peaceful, and encourages rest and rejuvenation.

It boasts beautiful views over farmland to the Outeniqua mountains and the Knysna forests, but is only 15 minutes to Sedgefield with its shops, restaurants and surrounding beaches. Knysna and Wilderness is an easy 25 minute drive through the beautiful lake systems and forests of the Garden Route. The well-known Garden Route Trail Park and Seven Passes Road is a quick 5 minute drive away making The Studio an ideal base for mountain bikers and nature adventurers.

The Studio has an open-plan layout and offers a spacious and sunny lounge, kitchen and dining area with fireplace and gorgeous views. A feature bathroom allows you to commune with nature, privately. The bedroom area contains a king-size bed that can be converted to 2 single beds, made up with luxurious bedding allowing for peaceful sleep with only the sounds of nature as your companion. A comfortable sleeper couch allows an option for a third guest. The kitchen has a 2-plate gas hob, a microwave and decent sized fridge, and is well-equipped for stay-in meal prep.

Large windows and doors look out onto greenery planted to encourage birds, butterflies and bees. Bird feeders have been placed around the property to allow for visits from a variety of birds, and a small enclosed lawned area makes it pet friendly too.

A paved patio area under a pergola has glorious views onto the Outeniqua mountain range, ideal for sundowners and a braai after a day exploring, or for simply soaking up the sun in a quiet and relaxing environment. The Studio is fully fenced for the safety of your pets.

Water is provided by rain and power by the sun. In the event of rainy spells or extended cloud cover, you may need to switch over to generator to heat the geyser and power the water pump. This usually only happens at night and the batteries quickly power up in the morning. Instructions to turn the generator on are supplied, as are candles and a lantern. This is nature dependent off-the-grid living!

We encourage recycling and have eliminated single use plastic packaging. Unlimited alien wood from the area is provided free of charge.

Your hosts live in the main house on the same property and are respectful of the need for privacy, however they will gladly help with any information and recommendations on the area, be it restaurants, activities or sightseeing. The Studio is on its own fenced-off and entirely private piece of land and has a self check-on system.
