A two-room inn opened in 2006 by a local farmer named Tinie Bekker. A soft-spoken fiftysomething Afrikaner whose ancestors were among the first Boers to settle the Karoo in the early 1750’s, Bekker inherited the family’s grape and dairy farm in 1982. He has since transformed it, planting jungle-thick gardens of agapanthus and iris and furnishing the homestead with Victorian pieces and Cape Dutch antiques—a style he describes as “rustic Cape Country Afrikaner.” Rooms in the refurbished barn have worn yellowwood floors, vintage claw-foot bathtubs, and stunning vineyard views. In the evening, guests may dine on Karoo lamb chops and an organic fig pie that Bekker whips up in his kitchen.
