How the Lodge came about

Kevin and Tracy gave up the hectic corporate and city world and moved to the Kevacy Farm near the town of Clarens during 2020. They  started the process of restoring the natural veld and wildlife in this wonderful corner of the Free State Province and decided to share this piece of heaven with others and turned the original farm house into a lodge.

Kevacy Farm Lodge is the most wonderful place to stay when visiting Clarens. The farm itself is stunning with great hiking and cycling trails. We especially love the hike up to the top of the farm overlooking the beautiful Lesotho vista. Accommodation in the farm house is just so stylish and comfortable and each room designed so differently from the rest. Treat yourself to meals by Tracy too. She is a first class chef. We just love our visits to Clarens and just love staying at Kevacy Lodge.

– Jill and Brad Magrath

As a regular visitor of the farm, I can safely say Kevin and Tracy’s farm is the ultimate getaway! We have had so many amazing stays here. It’s perfect for a quiet and relaxing break with the fireplaces the walking trails and amazing food, but also doubles a great spot for group holidays with friends! It was the perfect venue for a big party we held there last year and will be coming back to repeat again this May!
