We only stayed for a single night in one of the lake cabins before driving to Knysna.
The location is a few km from the town though this is not really a drawback. It also requires a bit of dirt road driving though nothing problematic. The breakfast was ok though not a highlight. There's decent WiFi but is a confined area.
The wooden chalets make staying here for a few days worthwhile. Very peaceful and in a great setting. They are a little rustic but nicely decorated and very comfortable.
Suggest arriving early both to enjoy the location and to make finding the farm easier
