Reviews of Maple Grove


"What a wonderful place!"

Stuart Kemp | 12 October 2017

"Absolute perfection. Attention to every detail in our little cottage from the sherry on arrival to the little things that most places overlook. What a wonderful hostess Lindsay was. The beauty of this place is mind blowing. My wife and I left relaxed and already planning our next visit. "

"1 night stay over"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maple Grove. We stayed in the Chalet. It is most probably one of the nicest places to stay at in Hogsback.
The kitchen is nice and big with a large dining room table that makes it very comfortable to cook and eat in on those cold nights. The braai facilities are also very nice and accommodating. There are two en suite bathrooms, one has a shower, the other has a bath. The friendly little jack rusells running around also makes it feel very homely."

(South Africa) Johan van der Merwe | 3 November 2013

"Thank you for a lovely stay. The Cottage was stunning and exceeded our expectations. The gorgeous surroundings made up for the cold, wet weather and relaxing in front of the fire was a treat. Thank you Peter, for making us feel at home."

"We recently spent three nights at Maple Grove and felt extremely comfortable in The Cottage. We truly felt as if we were at home. All the home necessities were there and the place's decor is cozy and warm with an African touch. We found everything we needed and our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Hogsback is a 'must do' on everyone's travel list and we strongly recommend Maple Grove as your 'home away from home' while in Hogsback."


"Comfortable stay"

(South Africa) Christa de Villiers | 3 April 2013

"The cottage has a beautiful setting, is private and well equiped for a comfortable self catering stay.

Some of the roads in the area are quite bad. Ensure that your vehicle can go on the roads that you want to explore."


"Nice and relaxing"

(South Africa) Vanessa Chambers | 26 March 2013

"The warm welcome we received from hosts Peter and Lynn was awesome. The surroundings and cabin was truly spectacular and this is the perfect get away from city life. We only spent the one evening but are already planning our next long weekend visit."


"Superb!"

(South Africa) ingrid luyt | 29 December 2012

"Hogsback stay"

(South Africa) Friedrich Slabbert | 20 December 2012

"Fantastic, just what the doctor ordered..fresh air, friendly people, lovely walks, enough to do, wish I could stay longer."

(South Africa) Aileen Puhlmann | 21 May 2012

"We had a great time at Maple Grove. While it was one of the coldest weekends, we managed just fine with a constant fire going and lots of blankets to keep us warm. The dŽcor is beautiful and all the 'little things' are thought of. We will be coming back for sure. Thank you very much!"


"Lovely"

(South Africa) Elmerosa Mathews | 12 March 2012

Also the complimentary home made kiwi jam. We were given our privacy but help was provded when our visitor's vehicle got stuck in a ditch! A most pleasurable stay. We definitely recommend Maple Grove. It is ideal for a couple or for a family."

"We arrived at the venue after a very bad rain storm. We just got inside our room and couldn’t explore the scenery. We were left inside unable to go anywhere, but the owners were kind enough to serve us a well cooked meal. They were gracious, made us feel comfortable and most accommodating. The rooms was also well appointed and we were happy with our stay. After we checked out we were headed towards Kokstad and kindly the owners gave us useful information on how to get there with a short cut route from them. We were appreciative of the information and will definitely stay there again."


"Its perfect"

(South Africa) Madelaine | 28 December 2016

"Maple Lodge Hogsback"

(South Africa) Reed | 26 April 2015

"Nestled in a beautiful part of Hogsback, this accommodation leaves nothing lacking. All creature comforts are provided for. Our only criticism was that we have stayed in many B & B's, both in SA & the UK, & we have never been asked to pay for the accommodation to be serviced."


"Hideaway"

(United Kingdom) Mary | 15 July 2014

"Very friendly and hospitable hosts. Chalet well provided for, little things like homemade rusks and fresh milk; flowers and chocolates on pillows to greet us.

We visited in winter and was very cold, but we had electric blankets, basket of logs for the fire and plenty of hot water, but be prepared for just how cold it can get, we weren't! The evenings we enjoyed snuggling up with a fire and homemade chilli sherry, very relaxing."

"From the moment our booking was electronically confirmed up to the moment we left we "Experienced that special feeling” encouraged and sustained by our Hosts
Why? Little things like ensuring that we have the correct directions, special arrangements regarding our sleeping arrangements , walking into a spotlessly clean and functional accommodation , using their internet facilities free of charge to attend to special business needs , taking us on a guided tour of the premises , checking if everything is to our satisfaction , giving us some shrubs to plant on leaving but the overall realisation that we are not just business for them but guests in the true sense of the word
Thank you Maple Grove for granting and allowing us to "Experience that special feeling”

"Nestled in the Hogsback mountains you will find a small, but quaint establishment called "Maple Grove" surrounded by the awesome forests and mountain views; one could not wish for a better place to stay and enjoy some family and relaxation time.

The cabin, although small, offers one a comfortable and cosy stay, equipped with all the necessary items to ensure one has everything on hand to cater for oneself in the time spent there.

Evenings spent braaing on the deck and gazing at the beautiful autumn colours surrounding you, and breathing in the crisp mountain air is amazing. The owners Peter and Lyndsay are very friendly and hospitable and do everything possible to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

On returning to the cabin in the evenings after a long day of hiking and exploring, one experiences the feeling that it is a little home away from home and you can kick back and relax while planning your next day’s activities.

Maple Grove truly is a little piece of heaven and is definitely good for one's soul, nothing like experiencing nature and feeling happy and content in knowing that you are both welcome and cared for!!

Thank you Peter and Lyndsay, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return in the near future.
