Yellowwood Lodge, situated only a few minutes from the centre of Knysna CBD, is steeped in history, and offers you a delightful base from where you can explore all that Knysna is so well known for. This charming old heritage Guesthouse has been carefully restored to reflect its old time glory, and offers comfortable accommodation with all suites individually furnished. In 1904 this grand Nordic-styled house was built for the Thesen family, and later sold to the Parkes family in 1913. It was known for its generosity and hospitality. So it is natural that it has become such a successful Guest House, enjoyed by so many international tourists. Relax in the garden with its secluded swimming pool and explore the abundant birdlife all around the large garden. Explore and enjoy the Knysna Lagoon, the amphitheatre of the majestic Outeniqua mountains that surround the town, the deep green, misty forests and gentle, sunny, blue sky weather. . . all that attracted the earliest visitors and still continue to attract visitors from over the world today. From the quiet beauty of its lush, evergreen forests to the soaring beauty of 'The Heads,' Knysna is beauty in abundance. The Knysna Lagoon, breeding ground for the renowned Knysna Seahorse, is a protected marine reserve whose gateway to the sea is through sandstone cliffs called 'The Heads.' The view from the top of The Heads over the lagoon is spectacular. Picturesque Knysna, the jewel of the Western Cape's world famous Garden Route, has a wealth of opportunities for fun and relaxation. This charming town offers you everything that makes for an excellent, unforgettable holiday!
