Tree Spirit Guest Farm offers self-catering accommodation, and is located in the forest, high above Knysna. The lodge is situated on one of the original farms inhabited by Italian settlers, as featured in Dalene Matthee’s well-known book, The Mulberry Forest.
The farm dates back to the late 1800s and boasts ruins from the original house and well. This 8.5-hectare property combines the beauty of both fynbos and forest, and hosts an abundance of birds and wildlife. The lodge is completely solar and gas-powered, it provides the peace and solitude to be at one with nature for the length of your stay.
Accommodation at Tree Spirit Guest Farm comprises 2 different accommodation offerings. The cottages are located in a private, secluded corner of the farm overlooking a beautiful dam. Between the cottages, there is a communal, central unique stone and mosaic braai area, including a large fireplace which can also be used to make pizzas. A firepit also provides the perfect setting to enjoy alfresco dining on those summer nights under the stars.
The cottages are well-equipped for self-catering and also include crockery, cutlery, bed linen and towels. Cleaning materials, and complimentary tea, coffee, and sugar are also provided.
