About Schaefers' Halt

Take a step back into a bygone era and stay at Schaefers' Halt's historic cottages, self-catering accommodation for stressed city dwellers looking for an authentic country experience. The property is located in the Dullstroom countryside and is a nature-lover's retreat. Accommodation consists of four cottages, and Schaefer's Halt also offers a country wedding and function venue.

The nearby, quaint town of Dullstroom gives a glimpse into village life, with its high street shopping and many restaurants and pubs. Treat yourself to a horse riding trip and then a session at the beauty therapy salon. Schaefers' Halt is close enough to take a day trip to the many tourist attractions in the area, and is an ideal stopover to the Kruger National Park and private game lodges in Mpumalanga. The Dullstroom area saw much action in the Anglo-Boer War and the Highland Battlefields can best be appreciated on a tour.

Art courses are held on the scenic property and the more adventurous can try fly-fishing in the four well-stocked small ponds, as well as river fishing. Birdwatching, walking, hiking and mountain biking can all be enjoyed on the farm, which boasts stunning views, waterfalls, birds and wild flowers.

Wedding Venues: The Barn at Schaefers' Halt is an affordable wedding and function venue seating up to 150 guests. This Dullstroom wedding venue is dedicated to the exclusive use of the wedding party for a weekend or two-night midweek wedding package.

                  We stayed in a cottage named The Cosy. It is a spacious 2 bedroomed unit with ensuite bathrooms overlooking a beautiful garden and pond. The owners really pay alot of attention to detail with matches next to every candle, fresh flowers from the garden all through the cottage. The fireplace was a big bonus during the chilly evenings. Will definately stay there again and recommend Schaefer's Halt as an establishment.

                  Nice historic cottage. Although small, owners went to a lot of trouble to make stay comfortable and memorable. Only downside is distance from Dullstroom.
