Lake Longmere Lake House

A Tranquil Getaway suited for Couples, Families, Business Executives, Triathletes, Sporting & Tour Groups

Nestled on the outskirts of White River, a quaint town in Mpumalanga, you can find the Jenna Clifford ‘Jewel for your Soul’: The La Rose Cottage at Lake Longmere. A unique place with something for everyone!

La Rose Cottage is a spacious self catering home perfect for business people on the move, a family home-from-home sanctuary or a young couples holiday getaway. It is also the perfect base for sporting groups participating in nearby events, or for triathlete enthusiasts wanting to enjoy a weekend away with gorgeous surroundings in which to train for all three disciplines - swimming, running and cycling. 

Built in the late 80's - this home was bought by Jenna in 1987 as a holiday home which later became a home to her and her family in 2001. Built in a typical English "arts and crafts" style, the house has a pitched roof with tile hung finish and exposed red brick work on the exterior. Inside the house is comfortable but stylish influenced by modern French decor style - with rich colours and lots of light owing to the bi folding french doors which open onto the undercover patio.

Since 2006 Jenna has shared this gem of a place with friends and family who visited the designer from far and wide. Decorated in a true shabby chic style, the home has lots of character and quirky elements which all guests appreciate.

The house enjoys an open plan layout with a covered front and back patio, allowing you to enjoy long evenings of alfresco dining outside with lake views and tall mature blue gum tree surrounds.
