A two-hour drive from Cape Town via Worcester onto the scenic Route 62, via Robertson and then through McGregor – Western Cape brings you to what is often called, “The Road To Nowhere”, what could very well be just a drive through farmlands, has a semi-dead end with a surprise.

 

Tightly nestled in the heart of the Riviersonderend mountains, between the twin villages of Greyton and McGregor, a double-story, the stone house catches the eye, aptly named – Eagle’s Nest.

 

The Boesmanskloofhiking Trail and Die Galg are literally at the front door of this stone house and all hikers of this trail pass by its presence on the trail

  • Check-in Time: 02.00 pm
  • Check-out Time: 10:00 am

 

 

Rooms

 

  • This self-catering guest house boasts 3 double bed bedrooms each with an en-suite (shower and toilet) on the upper level of the house. Each room has extra single beds.

  • Every room is equipped with linen and towels. Bring towels for swimming. Due to Covid, you are welcome to bring your own linen. Please discuss it with Bernardo.

 

    Open plan Lounge and inside braai area

 

  • Upon entering Eagle’s Nest, your eyes are drawn to the glass sliding door which leads to the amazing deck with outstanding views on the Riviersonderend Mountains. This unlocks an amazing view of the Riviersonderend mountains and the natural rushing rock pools of the Gobos River.
  • a Wonderful interior braai ensures that when the mountain evenings turn its cooler side, you will be cozily cared for in the Eagles Nest.

 

 

Kitchen

 

  • A big family kitchen with a wooden table ensures a warmth that will make you feel right at home.
  • It is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, and other cookware as well as a fridge, microwave, stove, and a toaster, and of course the necessary electricity.
  • Exiting the kitchen door will hold yet another breath-taking disclosure.

 

 

Outside

 

  • What is better to enjoy the fresh mountain air, than to braai using the stone braai facilities on the deck of Eagle's Nest.
  • The swimming pool next to the braai is a bonus in the summer or after a long warm hike to cool off in. Bring your own swimming towels.

 

Bring your own electric plug for cell phone charging, please.

REVIEWS FOR EAGLE'S NEST

 

Thank you for Eagles Nest on Sunday evening. It was comfortable and in a fantastic position. Because of the weather and sore legs I left the kids at the viewpoint past the waterfalls to walk down to Greyton and returned via the historic pass to fetch my car. I look forward to returning again when we can explore the pools and walks. We had brought our own firewood which I used on the internal braai.

Sjoe, woorde ontbreek om my dankbaarheid uit te spreek vir die ongelooflike paar dae wat ons in Eagle Nest kon bly. Vandat ek my voete in daai deur gesit het, was alles net sooo mooi, gerieflik en die uitsig was iets besonders.    Ek verlang al klaar terug.  Moeg, uitgeput en arm in gees het ek daar aangekom, maar uitgerus, ryk in gees het ons Eagle Nest verlaat. Dankie dat julle die stukkie paradys met ons gedeel het.    Die warm komberse en warmwater bottels het baie gehelp.   Ons het die staproetes vreeslik geniet.  My seuntjie sê sy droom het waar geword – om sy gesig in ‘n bergstroompie te kon druk en vars bergwater te kon drink.   God se teenwoordigheid is verseker tasbaar daar en as die Here ons spaar is ons verseker terug in die toekoms.  

Baie baie dankie.Sandra Garces

We stayed with the four of us at Eagles Nest and had a great time, indoor braai, swimming in the pool with splendid views, adventure with a lost hiker, and a nice but long hike to the waterfalls. We will be back.

Hi Japie and Sandra

 What a lovely time we had at Eagles Nest.

 Just what one needs to get away from the city.

 Thank you very much.

 I am Pat’s sister and we enjoyed the walk up to the Overwacht cottages very much.

 Attached are some pictures.

Goeie Naand Sandra & Japie

Ons wil nie terug wees by die huis nie, die Arendsnes het ons so wonderlik onder sy vlerk toegevou. Dit was uitstaande ontspanning, wonderlike natuur, stap, blomme, voels, braai, & almal het saans op die dek gelê en sterrekyk. 

Ons het in die gasteboek geskryf en wil ook graag op die nuwe Website bylas - is dit moontlik?

Jammer ek het jou gemis met die besoek Sandra, maar Louise het die spesiale inloer en blomme baie waardeer. Sy is mal oor die fynbos-koningkryk en het "duisende" foto's geneem.

Daar het ongelukkig 'n Franse sjampanje-sak (Moët & Chandon) langs die mikrogolf agtergebly. Sal waardeer as julle dit kan onderskep, iewersvorentoe kom ons of vriende weer daar verby.

Dankie alles (wat reeds begin het met die bordskryf-boodskap by die voordeur).

Hi Sandra, Japie and Bernard

 Just a quick mail to say thank you for everything this weekend. We enjoyed the hike even though the weather was horrible. Thanks for helping us out with dry clothes and also drying all of our wet stuff. We really appreciated it. Our walk back was much easier. I'm sure we will see you again.

 Cheers

Hi Sandra,

 

Ons te heerlik gekuier. Sou graag meer wou gaan stap maar daarvoor sal ons n ander naweek boek. My 2 dogtertjies wou nie huis toe kom nie, dink die kleintjie sal daarvan hou om permanent daar te Bly.  Ons gaste was bietjie bang vir die reen, Georgie en reinhard aan die anderkant het n worsie in salie se gat ( in die reen) gebraai.

 

Reinhard se nou net hy het vergeet, is nou besig om betaling deur te sit. - jammer daaroor.

 

Ek sal graag weer n naweek wil boek, verkieslik n langnaweek.

 

Het jy oop 13-16 December? En Indien nie dalk 9-11 Augustus?

 

Groete

 

Nicola
