Black Eagle Lodge – A Caledon Retreat

Fishing on the River

Fishing on the River

If you are looking for a few days of total relaxation and soul-searching, a chance to reconnect with yourself or a loved one, or simply time out from a busy holiday or work schedule then a sunlounger with panoramic views of rolling wheatfields and majestic mountains is the place for you. An expansive verandah overlooks a spring water dam surrounded by fynbos, prolific birdlife and crisp fresh air.

Come and relish the splendours of this totally private self-catering retreat. Awake to the call of the sugarbird and unwind to the orchestral sounds of the African night. Spend summer days cooling off in spring water and wintry nights relaxing in front of a blazing log fire. Teach your children about the stars, how to fly-fish, collect frogs and count blue cranes.

Black Eagle Lodge

Accommodation is luxurious yet rustic. Three double bedrooms offer crisp linen, warm duvets, blankets and hot water bottles for chilly nights. Two bathrooms (1 en suite) have showers, a bath and plenty of fresh towels. A loft above the fireplace offers an inviting sleeping area for 2 children.

The open plan living area has a cosy lounge with a stone fireplace and well-equipped kitchen with gas fridge\freezer and stove. An outside barbecue (braai) area is protected by a boma style enclosure. Lighting is solar powered (there is no electricity). Although self-catering, special arrangements can be made ahead of your visit for breakfast or picnic baskets.
