There is also an outdoor bath nestled into the mountain and an outdoor shower. If romance were a cabin, she’d be the Mount Bain.
Despite the solitude there is no shortage of activities. Get outside and enjoy some superior mountain views, great fynbos, and fresh air.
The Bainskloof Pass offers a spectacular drive, a 20 minute hike to ancient rock paintings or an hour long hike to a waterfall. There are also MTB routes as well as multiple swimming spots and kayaking in winter. Wine and fruit farms, farm stalls, a gin distillery, restaurants, and a bush pub are all within close distance of the cabin.
For those hot days, there is a dedicated swim and picnic spot at the Witterivier for guests of the direct nature reserve. The Mount Bain supplies tubes and a Stand Up Paddle for guests to enjoy.
If outdoor adventuring is not your style, stay inside and laze around the fireplace, enjoy the slow life and watch the Klipspringers, Jackal Buzzards, and experience the landscape from your elevated perspective.
The quaint cabin is located high up on the Hawequas mountain in a private nature reserve (the last 150 meters require a 4×4 for direct cabin access). The cabin overlooks the beautiful Mostertshoek Twins, the Breede, and Witte River in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa.
Pets are allowed, as long as there is no interference with the wildlife in the reserve (Klipspringers, Dassies, baboons, etc.). There is no railing for animals on the deck. View availability and book your stay at this idyllic mountain location here.
