Twin Gables GuestHouse
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.
My brother Scott is the owner of the house, and the original concept, and design of the house was done by my late father, Leslie Petersen. He was a retired teacher by profession, with woodwork as his main subject. He was extremely passionate about woodwork, and was especially partial to furniture made of oak, yellow and black wood. Also as a keen historian, my father co-authored a book on the history of the Mamre Moravian Church. Copies of this book can be obtained either through me, Travis Petersen, or the Mamre Moravian Church.
