A cottage to feel yourself at home with owners who make you feel at home when you are 10.000 km from home. Wonderful surroundings with easy and not so easy walks in the Drakensbergen mountains.
We were grateful for the warm welcome we had. Hope to be able to come back again.

Piece of paradise in the Drakensbergen!
We had a lovely stay in Ema-Fweni In-the-Clouds!
Unforgettable view from the terrace, quiet and peaceful surroundings and Rita nearby for help if you need it.

The cottage is very charming and there is lots to do in  the valley, such as beautiful walks, a reptile centre, a birds-of-prey show, and Canopy Tours (sliding from platform to platform on steel cables; you feel like Tarzan:-)).

Hope to be able to return one day!

Ideal for groups of friends or small families
Lovely position in the mountains with spectacular views and beautiful gardens. Cottage fully furnished with comfortable couches. Beds adequate: the king size is two singles pushed together and would benefit greatly by the addition of a mattress top; the middle is uncomfortable otherwise. Kitchen well equipped.

NOTE: bring your own soap; none is provided, although all linen and towels are. Bring ALL foodstuffs that you will need (no complimentary tea, coffee or sugar). Luckily there are convenience stores a few minutes' drive away.

The owners are friendly, obliging and full of information. The area is full of places to go and things to do.

A delightful nest in Drakensberg
We spent 3 nights at the Lakeside Cottage and it was wonderful. Rita and Jens know what hospitality means and they have designed a very easy to live and comfortable chalet.
We hope to come back on spring to see all the azaleas in flower.
Many walks around and the landscapes view are amazing whatever is the weather. Enjoy!

What a beautiful place
It was a pity we did not have an extra night there.

Absolutely amazing
Went there for honeymoon. Absolutely perfect place for a quiet retreat in the beautiful Drakensberg. The property and the cottages are stunning, cozy and super neat. The surroundings are amazing. The couple who owns and runs the place is extremely friendly and ready to help with anything. Perfect for honeymoon or any other getaway. Best booking decision ever!

Great views
If you are looking for a relaxed place with great views and awesome surroundings, then this is the place. The gardens are fantastic and the views breath taking. The only comment would be that the furniture is a little tired and can be updated, but the views far outweigh this negative.

Only stayed one night but I would have loved to stay more. Very cosy accommodation set in a beautiful garden and nature surroundings.

Utterly charming retreat
From the warm and informative welcome, the spacious Lake Cottage, and the simply breathtaking views of Cathkin Peak and the Dragon's Back, we cannot rate Ema-Fwemi highly enough. If you want to be in the mountains but with all the comforts of home, this is for you.

Great time
Thank you for providing a home away from home. Such an amazing, restful holiday in paradise.

Heaven in the clouds
Truly a beautiful place. The scenery you wake up to is brilliant and the mountains seem so close by. The spa is great after a long day of hiking. The service is amazing and I never felt away from home.

Mountain at your doorstep
My father has always wanted to see the Drakensberg and this is as close as you can get without climbing it, our accommodation was lovely, the fire place helped to keep the cold at bay. Our hosts were most hospitable. We had our three year old with us and he simply lovely the pool and walking though the gardens.

Would recommend to anyone
This place is amazing, we've been to the berg so many times, but it has never been as good as this. The lake house is exactly what I was hoping it would be, with a fantastic knowledgeable host. They take the extra time to make you feel welcomed. The view is fantastic. The place is well looked after, and homey, while not letting you forget you are on holiday and there to relax.
