The Riverhouse is a gracefully restored, beautiful Cape Dutch Style homestead with a spectacular 20 meter veranda that overlooks the magnificent Bushman's River in Estcourt. There is ample security behind the electric gates and palisade fencing. The home is close to many of the conveniences, however with its fantastic large terraced grounds and peaceful position that overlooks the river, the amazing atmosphere makes you feel as if you are on a tranquil country retreat.

Accommodation at The Riverhouse consists of:

The rooms at The Riverhouse are all individually decorated, large and coffee/tea making facilities, their own bathrooms, heaters, roof fans and electric blankets. The house has 3 double bedrooms located in the main house, with one of the rooms having its own entrance. There are 2 lovely en-suite double annexes also with their own entrances and then a fantastic self-contained family room that has twin beds and a sleeper chair that can easily sleep 2-4 guests. The family room is equipped with self-catering facilities including a fridge, microwave, toaster, 2-plate stove and all the crockery and cutlery you will need.

The Riverhouse has an enormous lounge with a fabulous Jetmaster fireplace (wood is supplied). There is an individual dining room where guests can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast. Dinner will be available on request in advance. The restful atmosphere makes The Riverhouse a great destination for all the businessmen that are looking for that home away from home feeling.

The Estcourt area offers its visitors many great activities to keep everyone well active and entertained, such as exploring the Fort Durnford that was first occupied in 1847, white-water rafting, canoeing, sailing, trout fishing and many other watersports for those enthusiasts. The Estcourt Aero Club also offers gliding open to the public by arrangement only. There is bird watching and game viewing with the Weenen Game Reserve being one of the many reserves around, showing off its splendid rhino and other animals with the 230 bird species. A great nine hole Golf course is nearby, along with a quaint bowling green.
