Rhone Homestead
Dating back to 1760, this national monument conveys many of the historical architectural intricacies of the time. The low ceilinged building has the same H-shape as the Boschendal Manor House with a similar yellowwood and teak louvered screen dividing the front and back rooms. Nestling between rolling lawns, majestic oak trees and mountainous horizons, Rhone Homestead is an unforgettable function venue.
