About Us

Chosen Valley is a Farm Lodge of a different kind, tucked in the midst of abundant nature, where the air is fresh, completely free of pollution, and the  wind is fragrant and pure with a tinge of forest.

This Gouna Lodge is only 11’kms from Knysna central, but feels like a completely different world. 

With pristine Eco-systems, off grid living, a sizeable hydroponic vegetable garden and views that take your breath away, you will fall in love with this valley. 

Surrounded by the indigenous Knysna Forest National Park, Chosen Valley is a short, easy drive through the Gouna Pass (P1783), approximately 5km’s on the dirt road. 

We have several, homely Self Catering Cottages that will provide you with restful nights sleep, exquisite star gazing and the most breathtaking views in Knysna. 

Chosen Valley is the perfect Forest Escape while still being close enough to Knysna, you can switch off from the world and find your Inner Peace.
