Classic Montagu hospitality awaits you...

Squirrels Corner offers a relaxed, warm and friendly atmosphere and is one of the most established guest houses in Montagu. Centrally located in the village, most places of interest are within walking distance. It is also now home to an extensive world-class Ferrari scale model car collection.

The house dating from 1890 has been extensively refurbished since being bought by the new owners in 2016. Whilst now offering more modern accommodation Squirrels Corner still retains the old house character that appealed to guests in the past. Mike and Anne take pride in offering guests a “home away from home” experience in tranquil surroundings. During cold winter evenings wood fires add warmth and ambience to the guest lounge and dining room.

The beautiful garden is a haven in which to relax, watch the birds and enjoy a hot or cold beverage. Petrol heads are invited to view a world class collection of more than 2,000 scale model Ferraris, limited edition motor racing prints and other memorabilia.”

Two easy walks - Lovers Walk along the Keisie river and Kanonkop with lovely views of Montagu- begin a few hundred metres from our front door.

Squirrels Corner is one of the most established guest houses in Montagu.

The historical homes, museums, restaurants and tourist office of Montagu are all within a block or two of the guesthouse, whilst the renowned dried fruit factory, wine outlets and hot springs are a short drive away. Off-street parking is available for guests.

To facilitate “working away from the office” we have installed satellite internet for improved connectivity and a UPS to ensure that the internet, wi-fi and security cameras continue to operate during load-shedding
