A little history...

De Bergkant Lodge is a 19th century house, built in 1858 by local craftsman Carel Lotz for his daughter Petronella on her marriage to Helmuth Luttig.
All Carel’s houses have unique gables and while the basic shape owes much to the Cape Dutch design, they are typical to the village and are known as Prince Albert gables.
The house has many fine features: beautiful sash windows, elegant doors and high, wooden ceilings. After Helmuth’s death Petronella married a local farmer, Christoffel Neethling, who employed two Madagascan stonemasons to build the stone wall which surrounds part of the property. In time the Dutch Reformed Mission Church bought the house, which served as home to the mission dominee for some years.
De Bergkant Lodge was declared a National Monument in 1985 and is furnished with Cape antiques.
