1998, the Knysna Log-Inn embodies an “indigenous” concept that combines the
character and the spirit of the surrounding indigenous forests with Knysna’s
romantic history. On entering the lobby of one of the largest log structures
in the Southern Hemisphere, exquisitely carved solid Yellowwood trunks tower
upwards to the magnificent Scandinavian hammer trusses. Rays of sunshine
flooding through the spectacular stained glass windows, illuminate the
splendid solid Yellowwood staircase. The autumn hues of the slate flooring
and the extensive use of natural river stone combine with the wood to create
an atmosphere of tranquil balance. Truly “in tune with nature”.
The Indigenous Knysna Forests, wrapped in myth and mist, gave birth to a timber industry that once was the lifeblood of the town. The picturesque town, with its antique shops and restaurants, evokes the charm of a bygone era. The peaceful mirror of the Knysna Lagoon is a paradise for water enthusiasts and is suited to a wide variety of water sports. The famous Knynsa Heads – two dramatic rock sentinels guarding the entrance to the lagoon – mark the passage to the deep blue Indian Ocean.
The Knysna Log-Inn Hotel is very centrally located in the middle of town and ideally situated for sight seeing. The Hotel is within easy walking distance to the Knysna Quays (better knows as the Knysna Waterfront). The Choo-Tjoe station, with its quaint steam locomotives, is 230 m away, as are the ferries to the Heads and the Featherbed Nature Reserve.
