  • On arrival we were greeted by two lovely Hosts, the managers of the lodge on the lake, they have been nothing but friendly and very helpful. As we walked through the front door the sight of the lake was breathtaking and very relaxing, the manner in which we were treated was honestly a breath of fresh air, as the managers engaged in a conversation with us getting to know us as more than just a guest. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and let me tell you the pictures doesn't do the place justice it is beyond beautiful, neat and tidy , smells amazing , the staff is wonderful, we will definitely be coming back soon. The breakfast was delightful, your religion is taken into consideration as we are strictly halaal and our needs were catered for, we definitely rate the service and the lodge with gold stars. An amazing experience indeed! Thank you Mr and Mrs Stoecker lodge on the lake

  • We had a three night winter stay and loved the place. Very quiet and a nice base. The room was lovely and well maintained/serviced. Breakfast was the best. The managers' attention to detail was great and we loved her breakfast special (german red sausage, egg and potato dish!). It has great views of the lake and beautiful bird life. The only 'down side' was that you had to drive to get into Wilderness, but the peaceful surroundings were worth it! The onsite spa was great and the staff very friendly. A great weekend of relaxation.

  • If your soul is in search for a good quality breakaway with a breathtaking view from your suite windows, with only the lake birds singing in the distance and the warmest hospitality you can find... be reassured that you will find all of this and more at Lodge On The Lake. What an absolute gem! Martina and her husband went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure the best possible experience one can hope for. Right through from the first entrance into the beautiful reception overlooking the Wilderness lake, to the luxurious suites and Martina's wonderful breakfasts and their excellent advice on what to do in and around Wilderness. The only regret we had was not staying longer than the two nights we where booked in. Thank you both for making our short breakaway so very special and memorable. We will definitely be back!

  • We spend a night at this spectacular lodge. From arrival right to when Martina and Klause waved us goodbye was one amazing experience, thanks to the wonderful hospitality of this very special couple. We felt wonderfully spoiled by their attention to detail and continuous striving to make our stay memorable. The rooms are beautiful and the view breathtaking. Breakfast was superb! I totally agree, we would go back in a heartbeat...

  • My husband and I decided to take a short break, and we really wanted to just switch off, relax and get a sense of timelessness from our holiday. We decided to stay at Lodge on the Lake, which consists of an in-house spa and 5 bedrooms, each with its own balcony overlooking the lake. This place is super special and one of the most spectacular places that I have been privileged enough to stay at. As we were in one of the most beautiful locations in the Western Cape, we knew we would be in for a treat. Our expectations have been surely exceeded. Our stay was made even more amazing by having Martina and Klause as our hosts. Originally from Germany, we were superbly spoilt with delicious home cooked, traditional German dishes and a dessert from Martina’s great grandmother. She was kind enough to share this recipe with me, and I will be trying this soon. On our first night, we went for dinner at Salina’s Beach Restaurant. When we arrived back at the Lodge, Martina had the Jacuzzi set up for us with champagne, candles and soft music. On our second night, we were treated for a 3-course candlelight dinner for 2. This was so special! Lodge on the Lake is a place that spoils you with spectacular views, excellent food, fabulous hosts and incredible service. We will surely be back!
