We bought Over The Mountain Guest Farm in December 2014. At the time it had been operating as a guest house for almost 15 years. We fell in love with the beautiful old buildings the very first time we saw them and knew that we wanted to live here.

My life verse is “..to make it my ambition to lead a quiet life and to attend to my own business and to work with my hands ..” (1 Thess. 4:11). I believe that it fits perfectly with our lifestyle here at Over the Mountain.

Since moving here in February 2015 we have improved and repaired the buildings and property, expanded the service offering in our lovely tea garden, we upgraded the quality of our rooms.

It has given us great pleasure to see how our staff has developed and taken pride in their work and in the guest house.

Herold is the little town that never happened, situated on the original Doornrivier farm at the top of the Montagu pass. It is only 30 minutes drive from either George or Oudtshoorn and a short driving distance from many of the popular attractions along Route 62.

A sense of history can be felt on the picturesque grounds, as  Over the Mountain Guest Farm includes the original late 19th century, Post Office, Police Station and old Farm House buildings.
