Mahem House is a self-catering home located in the small town of Wakkerstroom. This historical house was built in 1890 and offers lovely views of the wetlands and countryside. The house is within walking distance to the village and is a flat, easy stroll.

The pet-friendly home contains most of the historical features and consists of 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a guest toilet. Each of the four bedrooms has been themed and consists of a children’s themed room with 2 single beds, a "Gentleman's" room with a king size bed, a "ladies" boudoir with a king bed and a single bed and the main bedroom with a king bed. All beds can be converted into twin beds. There are extra mattresses for children, so more than nine people can be accommodated. Each bed is fitted with luxury bedding and an electric blanket. There is 1 bathroom fitted with a separate bath, shower and toilet, a separate toilet, and a shower room; soft bath sheets are supplied as well as shower gel, facial wipes, hand lotion and liquid hand soap. Complimentary cookies or rusks in the kitchen.

The home has a large farm-style kitchen that contains a gas stove and electric oven, a dishwasher, a fridge-freezer, and a microwave. Off the kitchen and entering into the dining room, is a fully functional 5-plate Union 7 coal stove, as well as a wood-burning fireplace in the lounge. These features, coupled with underfloor heating in the kitchen, dining room and bathroom, ensure a warm and cosy stay in chilly weather. Firewood, firelighters, briquettes and matches are provided.

The dining area leads out onto a patio, which has braai facilities for guests to use and lovely views to admire. Alternatively, guests can sit on the covered semi-wrap-around veranda at the front of the house and braai there either on the weber or the gas braai. Off-street parking is available.

While there is no Wifi in the house yet, guests are welcome to use the host's Wifi in a relaxing garden where there are tables and chairs and access to electrical points. Umbrellas are provided.

Guests are welcome to bring their dogs as long as they are socialised. There is plenty of land for them to run and play.
As most restaurants are closed during the middle of the week, the host has a range of affordable frozen homemade meals available, as well as braai meat. Bikers don't need to bring food! The menu is sent out a couple of days prior to arrival.
