Lovely place for a much needed weekend away. Spotless, reasonable and beautiful serene views too. If you find yourself going to White River, be sure to use White House Lodge. We got more than our money's worth.

A lovely location in the hills above white river with comfortable rooms, lovely grounds and exceptional attention to detail. My favourite aspect was the proper coffee! So easy to do, yet so seldom found in SA guesthouses. Only downside was that WiFi was extremely weak and slow so went back to using 3G on the phone.

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very nice. The rooms were big and really clean (everything was so clean you can eat on the floor!). The food was a real german breakfast. We were given the best tips on sight seeing and restaurants. Every detail was well organised, from the opening of the gate, the selling of drinks... More

Hosts were superb, efficient and responsive to every question (and we had many, about things to do, places to go, packing handi-crafts, etc). Location is convenient (7 KM) for the Mpumalanaga (Nelspruit) Kruger International (MPK) airport. Fantastic views. Excellent breakfasts. Family friendly.

We stayed for one night on the way to Kruger park, and we loved it! The place has outstanding views over the valley, and a nice swing on top of the hill to enjoy it. The owner recommended us a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood and gave us advise and updates about the Kruger park (which was needed because there... More

We stayed here a few days ago, on the first night of our trip through SA. When we booked the stay Susann immediately sent us an email with some useful additional information, which was very helpful. We stayed at the luxury cottage and in everything the attention for detail was showing. We felt very welcome, the location looks stunning with... More

Stayed here for a night prior to heading to Kruger Park, and then again for a night afterwards (which wasn't pre-booked). Susan and Detlef were so accommodating, the rooms and grounds are beautiful with great views. The breakfast was absolutely superb, and all advice given to us by Susan and Detlef was spot on. We only realised on our last... More
