Dear valued guest
Thank you for your support and understanding during the recent Knysna fires. We are happy to announce that we have started re-building the part of the Lodge that was damaged and that we will be fully operational from 15 December 2017. Bookings can be made on our webpage through the Nightsbridge link for 2018.
We invite you to follow our progress on our Facebook page and look forward to accommodate you at our Lodge in the near future. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

The Big Tree House Lodge, Knysna, Garden Route

Welcome to the Big Tree House Lodge.

The Lodge offers the Big Tree House, the Sunbird Cottage and Lagoon Cottage, the ultimate in self-catering comfort in Knysna, the heart of the Garden Route. Celebrating the town’s longstanding connection with timber and the Knysna forest, three timber framed units offer guests unique, stunning views over the Knysna lagoon and through the Knysna Heads.

Set in lush, private gardens, guests may almost feel as if their luxury self-catering accommodation is nestled within the mysterious, indigenous Knysna forest rather than a stone’s throw from the bustling centre of town and all the excitement that Knysna and its surrounds have to offer. After a day of exploring, come home to your private deck and braai facilities overlooking the sparkling lagoon, relax in front of your flat screen TV with satellite television and check in on social media with our free WiFi. The Lodge offers private secure off street parking.

Located approximately midway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, Knysna is the ideal stopover for those traveling for business. Knysna is also at the centre of South Africa’s scenic Garden Route, making it the perfect base from which to explore the nearby towns of George, Oudtshoorn and Plettenberg Bay. While Knysna, and the rest of the Garden Route, is a vacationer’s dream, it is an equally popular incentives, teambuilding and business travel destination. And within close proximity of some of South Africa’s most prestigious golf courses, and boasting five of its own, Knysna is a golfer’s paradise.

Knysna is your destination of choice on the Garden Route, and the Big Tree House Lodge is your choice for self-catering accommodation on the Garden Route.
