October 2011

November 9, 2011, from The River Farm Visitors' Book

We loved the design, we loved the decor, the stillness, the view, the bright stars and welcome by Jock. All in all, a little bit of a paradise in the Karoo.                                          Alan and Marlene, October 2011.

We feel you must be soul mates! The books we have read – all the care in the detail. The friendly gentle Jock – first Jack Russell x I have ever met that is obedient! Well done! A million thanks for this miraculous spot!                                                                              Margie and Gus, October 2011.

Thank you for everything. We had a wonderful stay. You have a stunning place and it will be a privilege to visit you again.                                                                                   Janus and Corli, October 2011.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. I am quite envious that you get to spend every waking day in such unspoilt land. Robert, an architect not given to easy compliments, thought the cottage a gem. He loved the way it had been finished, how all the parts “worked” together so well.                                                                                                              Gideon and Robert, October 2011.

Beautiful tranquil place. We came, we saw, we left, but we will be back again to do some fishing. You have an awesome place.                                                                               The Thiarts, October 2011.

Such a special space! Your passion is clearly noticable in every detail in and around the cottage. Being here I had a very strong urge to create. Thank you for sharing this magical place.                                                                                                                  Arsa, October 2011.

Quite a ! And quite a place – one that leaves us with a monster problem – one that we can possibly only solve by returning here – hopefully, very soon!                                          Royden and Robin, October 2011.

Dis pragtig hier en alles is so netjies versorg. Baie dankie.                                                                                                    Hans en Alta, October 2011.

Baie dankie vir alles, dit is  pragtig hier en ons gaan verseker weer kom.                                                                             Anel en Hugo, October 2011.

What an incredible place this is. Beautiful setting and gorgeous cottages. Your care in every detail, from the simple yet stylish interiors, to the beautifully set out trails was a pleasure to experience. We haven’t been this relaxed in years.                                          Bridget and Ryan, October 2011.

Breathtaking! Watching as the sun wakes and casts different shadows and shades over the mountains, what a way to wake up. Very jealous of Colin’s morning routine – we pack into a confined air conditioned building, torturing ourselves on electronic  devices to burn off extra calories and get fit, Colin grabs the Greyhounds, runs along the river and then dives in for a few laps – Virgin Active could learn from you Mr Lumb. Thank you for restoring our souls, we leave our hearts in this valley. Jock is my love. Jock4eva.                Sam and Carlos, October 2011.

Amazing. Life’s simplest pleasures are the greatest.                                                                                                                         Justin and Keren, October 2011.

As fellow guest house owners, what a pleasure to arrive in such a clean comfortable and well equipped unit. This spot is food for the sole! We will definitely recommend River View Cottages to all our guests travelling the R62. Jock was a welcome companion.              Jan and Erika, October 2011.

The cottage. The View. The books (& magazines). All exceed expectations. A superb four days of R and R (with Jock in tow)!                                                                                     Mike and Janet, October 2011.

The Old School House: What a wonderful time of the year to visit our spiritual home! The flowers, bird an animal life are spectacular. As we drove into the valley along the rather long 7km driveway, worries and city like melted away – Thank you for the rejuvenation, the fresh air, the warmth of the Lumb clan (including the four legged) and for the treasured memories. Love Always.                                                                            Sam and Carlos, October 2011.

The Old School House: Wonderful three nights that felt like time suspended; best way to forget about town stresses. Lovely rain-filled day spent puzzling and gazing onto folding green mountain vistas framed by sash windows. Then sunny day spent rowing and getting happily lost on the School Children’s walk. Jock a constant companion. Be back!                                                                                                                                 Stef, Cindy, Annabelle and Louisa, October 2011.

The Old School House: Loved being here, once again. Definitely planning to stay longer next time. And another hike?                                                                                    Pim and Thera, October 2011.

The Old School House: The School House and the farm are like a precious gem, one that we will be back to visit again. We had a fantastic time, thank you!                               Neil, Lorren and Eryn, October 2011.
