Voëlroepersfontein Gastehuis & Skrywersretreat is hidden between giant trees in the historic town of Albertinia. An abundance of underground water rises out of the 1.6-hectare dark, fertile soil, filling two dams and providing vast gardens of water.

The guesthouse offers spacious air-conditioned rooms facing north, and each room is equipped with tea-and-coffee-making facilities, a fridge, as well as a TV with DStv. Guests also have access to free Wi-Fi, a library, a guest lounge, a balcony, as well as a kitchen where guests can prepare their own meals.

On both sides of the old mansion there are 2 majestic wildevy trees; the largest tree, the "Wispering Tree" has been awarded national champion-tree status. In the evening, the gardens are lit up and the tree trunks and air roots, create a terrestrial impression. Guests can relax on banks beside the water, in the woods under the trees, and even fish on a catch-and-release basis. Braai facilities are available at various locations on the premises. The premises also have security cameras to ensure safety.

The guesthouse is ideal for travellers and groups; reunions, family gatherings, and weddings. Picnics, workshops, corporate breakaways, conferences, music concerts and reading opportunities are on the deck under the award-winning Fluisterboom. Voëlroepersfontein is a place of healing and inspiration. Here guests can reunite with nature.
