Twin Gables Guest House is a family-run business. Your hosts are Dawn, Scott and Travis Petersen. Mamre is historically a Moravian Mission Station, and is well known for its many national monuments. It has a rich history of missionaries that came from Germany to spread the Christian faith. It also served as an outpost for the British Military. Subsequently, many of the surviving buildings have been declared national monuments, including Die Langhuis, Church and the Old Mill.
The Twin Gables Guest House offers you an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Even though it is situated only 50 kms from Cape Town, it provides all the peace and tranquility one would normally associate with the countryside.
