Welcome to the private mountain hideaway. Mount Serene is situated on the slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountains, about 30km from the town of Magaliesburg,on the R24; less than 100km from Johannesburg or Pretoria.

The accommodation units at Mount Serene are very well separated to ensure absolute privacy of guests at all times. Accommodation at Mount Serene consists of a family unit (The Coach) and Stone Cottage.

The family unit is built into a 1937 wooden railway carriage which has been renovated to accommodate a group of up to 8 people. It has 3 bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with 2 single beds and one with 2 bunk beds. There is a lounge, dining room, kitchen and modern bathroom, all well equipped for a comfortable, relaxing getaway.

Patios on both sides of the carriage ensure there is always a choice of sun or shade, as well as spectacular views and great sunsets. The private pool is for the use of the carriage guests only. All crockery, cutlery, bedding and towels are provided. Yes! Even the railway coach has a log fireplace in the lounge

The honeymoon cottage is made of solid stone from the Magaliesberg mountains, and built to accommodate a couple only. It comprises a bedroom with queen size bed, en suite bathroom with a 2 seater bathtub and double shower over the bath, plus a kitchen, dining room and lounge. A sliding door leads to a patio with private splash pool, braai and stunning view of the Magaliesberg cliffs, towering 350m higher than the cottage. This is the ultimate in privacy. If you wish to see anyone else during your stay here you will have to go out and look for them. All crockery, cutlery, bedding and towels are provided.

Whether you choose to relax at the pool side at Mount Serene, walk to the mountain plateau, explore iron-age ruins, hike to the top of the Magaliesberg moutains or identify some of the 300 species of birds found in the area, you are guaranteed a peaceful break from the city life.

There are many recreational and sporting facilities close by, including game drives, horse riding, trout fishing, golf, tennis, quadbiking, magalies meande and hot air ballooning to name but a few!

Mount Serene certainly lived up to its name. The views, peace and quiet were a balm for the soul after Jo'burg. The owners were welcoming, the train coach a delightful surprise and the pool just perfect for a cool-down. Everything was clean and well cared for, from the bed-linen to the kitchen utensils, as well as the braai and the shower. We will definitely be returning.

Thanks to Glenda for a wonderful stay. It was exactly what we needed. Cozy fireplace for the cold night and just the nature surrounding you. Wish we could have stayed longer and will one day definitely return. I would recommend the stone cottage where we stayed for any couple.Thanks guys.

We had a lovely weekend! The Stone Cottage is the perfect place to break away, peaceful and secluded and stocked with everything you need. The walking trail was quite something and the splash pool a winner. Will definitely return for a longer stay.
