Lairds Lodge is a Cape Dutch homestead located between Knysna and Plettenberg.


Lairds Lodge is the perfect location for exploring the Garden Route from Wilderness to Tsitsikamma.


The lodge is set on a 24-acre estate with natural fynbos vegetation and manicured landscapes between Knysna and Plettenberg. 


There are 16 rooms, each with private terraces and beautifully decorated en-suite bedrooms. The rooms are split into standard, deluxe and luxury, with luxury being the largest.

Breakfasts are served in the courtyard and consist of freshly baked pastries, homemade jams, fresh fruit and cooked specialities. The lodge is a bit out of the way for getting out in the evenings for dinner, but there is a great restaurant on site that serves a delicious set menu – you can choose from a two-, three- or four-course meal. There is a rustic wine cellar, which is perfect for a private dinner for up to six guests.


There are several verandas and sheltered courtyards, where guests like to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings.

  • There is an inviting swimming pool, which in the summer months becomes the best place to spend your afternoons.
  • Indoors there is a lounge area with comfortable couches, a small library and a fireplace to keep you warm in the winter.
  • The brandy lounge is the perfect place for enjoying an after-dinner drink and catching up on all the day’s activities.
