Booked the 10 sleeper, which was spacious, well organized, awesome log cabin feel... The owners are friendly and very helpful..Directions to the place could be a little better. Seemed like all units had a satellite dish, so carry your DSTV decoders and a portable TV if you have one, should you be a TV junkie, only noticed it once I... More

Great accommodation with river, mountain and farm views. It was very chilly but the fireplace indoors kept us toasty. We caught a fish in the dam on the property. The location was central to lots of attractions. The general property needs a little more maintenance or tlc but maybe it comes to life in summer. Guesthouse managers were friendly. Apparently...

Though the couple who's responsible there is very friendly, the view is great, the place is very basic and outdated. We were on a trip in South Africa for three and a half weeks and the Eagle Rock was the worst accomodation: dirty, basic and outdated. Maybe its a matter of great expectations but this lodge did not really satisfy... More

We stayed there for couple days in winter and had a lovely time with a log fire at night. It was truly beautiful there and the chalets were nicely decorated. The owners were very friendly and accommodating to all our needs. Definitely where we will stay if we go to underberg again!
