Otter's Bend Lodge is situated on a ‘farm', in the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, surrounded by wine and fruit farms. A foot track leads you off Dassenberg Road through paddock and pear orchard down to the Franschhoek River. You will find Otter's Bend Lodge nestled in amongst poplars, oaks and yellowwoods on the banks of a bend in the river - a nature lover's dream. Its tranquil rustic ambience makes it hard to believe that it is only a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive to the centre of Franschhoek village.

Property Facilities:
Otter's Barrel, the large open communal room, serves as the meeting place for all the Otter's guests.

It is dominated by a huge (36,000 litre) oak wine vat as well as a chunk of yellowwood which serves as the large table top. You will hear firsthand what others have enjoyed in the valley - be it wine tasting, restaurants, hiking, activities or places of interest.

The room is equipped for self-caterers with cutlery, crockery, fridge, microwave, kettle, hot plate and kitchen utensils. An old traditional wood burning stove adds charm to the atmosphere as well as flavour to any meal. If you wish to cook on an open fire, make use of the huge fireplace or braai facilities.

Area Information:
Otter’s Bend Lodge is the ideal base from which you can venture out to explore the Franschhoek Valley and surrounding winelands. It is also a comfortable hour’s drive from Cape Town, half an hour from both Stellenbosch and Paarl, 45 minutes from Somerset West and an hour and a half from Hermanus.

In Room Facilities:
Each of the five cosy rooms in log cabin style leads out through double doors onto a deck under the poplars.

High wooden ceilings and high triangular windows enhance the feeling of being outdoors and surrounded by nature. Although small and compact the rooms have everything you need for a comfortable stay and the beds guarantee a good night’s sleep. Each room has a shower, basin and toilet en suite with hot and cold running water. Bedding, pillows and towels are provided. Heaters and additional blankets help to keep the winter chill at bay. Three-prong electrical plugs are in each room.

This is such a beautiful and well run town, with an abundance of wine and good food! Would highly recommend this for any visitors seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or just want a romantic weekend away. It is on the pricey side, so be prepared to pay a bit for a meal and drinks. Otherwise have fun!

Superb. 5 out of 5
