Rustic, Tranquil Stay!
We LOVED staying at The Old Trading Post. There's a lot of history to the place, which my mom really enjoyed. The properly is beautiful and surrounded by nature. We enjoyed watching many species of birds while staying on the property. The dogs on the property were friendly and sweet and not overly loud. We enjoyed only one night here but which we could have stayed longer...and plan to return on our next Garden Route adventure. The property is truly peaceful and tranquil. We enjoyed sitting by the pool reading books and resting, the beds and room are comfortable and clean. We stayed in the Tin Room. The only thing we did not like about our room was the floor boards create SO much, it was very noisy to walk around one side of the room. We felt terrible being so loud on our way out the door in the early morning because the room shares a wall with another suite. Mike and Renee were great hosts and even woke up to prepare a breakfast for us, ready at 6:30am so we could get on the road on time! Great food and lovely people who gave us our space but were also very friendly and helpful.

Comfortable B&B just outside Wilderness
We stayed in a twin room. It was clean & comfortable. Couldn't get wifi in our room & had to be in the main house to use it. The breakfast was delicious & plentiful with a good selection of both continental & hot options. The owner was very friendly.
