Welcome to Rooderandt Hillside Lodge
Rooderandt Hillside Lodge is far more than a "somewhere to stay" while visiting the area. Rooderandt is a 19th century lodge which provides their guests with a truly memorable experience - a mixture of nature, culture and the Old World Charm and hospitality for which the Klein Karoo is renowned. The natural beauty of the 50 hectares of unspoilt land surrounding the lodge is abundant with indigenous fauna, flora and birdlife.
As well as providing luxury accommodation in the two spacious suites, each offering spectacular views across the Schoemanshoek valley, the house is a treasure trove of Africana culture. Throughout the house there are original paintings by South African artists. One of the most interesting features is the manor house's imposing front door, originally from a 17th century hunting lodge of Simon van der Stel - giving visitors an idea of what lies behind.
The four private cottages combine the old and the new. Each one is individually decorated with genuine antique furniture, 19th century stoves, and fireplaces combined with the convienence of air conditioning for the hot Karoo summers. Each cottage is equipped with spacious bathrooms. Some still have original peach-pip floors and are decorated with original paintings by South African artists.
Each cottage has it's own private patio offering unsurpassed views across the valley. The ideal place to relax with a glass of wine and watch the magnificent sun sets.
