|Point Lodge is ideally situated at the edge of the Knysna lagoon. Tranquil water laps at the garden wall at high tide. The sparkling pool is set in a beautiful garden with countless bird species. The welcoming dining room, lounge and ‘honesty’ bar have spectacular views across the lagoon. Point Lodge was one of the first guest houses in Knysna and has been in operation since 1991. Resident owners Ryk and Amanda and manager Veronica are available to help with your queries. |
