Well equipped self catering house with loads of accommodation in the most secluded magic spot near McGregor. Ideal for starting the Bosmanskloof hike through to Greyton. Make sure to walk along the old historic road. Great bird life. Very limited cell reception a bonus. Fire wood available for sale with an honesty jar.

We had a really awesome time at Eagles Nest. The house is well equipped and the en-suite bathroom attached to every room is a real benefit. We appreciated all the blankets placed all through the house. Bernardo checked in all the time to make sure we have everything we need and he really made us feel at home. And then...

A great place to celebrate a birthday with special friends. The house is quirky and well equipped. The sunsets are incredible and the sunrises well worth the early rise. We scrambled down to the river and enjoyed a paddle/swim in the rock pool we'd being eyeing from above. I'd love to go back so will be booking well in advance...

This self catering guest house is set in a most stunning area. Magnificent views around the surrounding valley. Take a shortwalk from the house and you will find lots of proteas and birds.

We visited Eagles Nest in July 2014 and again this weekend (Nov 2014). It was fantastic. The views, the walks, the house. The house is old but lots of character. It has everything you need and the views are spectacular. Its not very child friendly but perfect for adults. Book in advance (it is very popular).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A two hour drive from Cape Town via Worcester onto the scenic Route 62, via Robertson and then through McGregor brings you to what is often called "The Road To Nowhere", what could very well be just a drive through farmlands, has a semi dead end with a surprise. Tightly nestled in the heart of the Riviersonderend mountains, between the twin villages of Greyton and McGregor, a double story, stone house catches the eye, aptly named - Eagle's Nest.This nature lover's paradises lies up in the heart of the Riviersonderend Mountains and are also surrounded with mountain peaks of the Langeberge and Galgeberg.Both places are linked to the famous Boesmanskloof Hiking Trail (permit is needed) also known as the McGregor-Greyton Trail. This popular Trail is a 16 km Trail of +- 6h between Greyton and McGregor.Eagle's Nest and Onverwacht Flora are an ideal getaway for naturelovers, week-enders, hikers, and mountain biking or only to listen to the uproariously singing of the sugarbirds or the rumbling of the river rock pools.The lights of the nearby villages of the R62 (the world's longest wine route) and the Overberg are a picturque view day and night.Both accommodation places overlook the Gobos River with many refreshing rock pools to choose from for having lots of fun! From the stone patios the real world is a far off memory. The famous "Boesmanskloof Hiking Trail" and the mysterious "Die Galg "Road is literally at the front door of this stone house and all hikers of this trail pass by its presence on the trail. ... more   less
