Weekend Nursery and Cottages
Ranked #1 of 20 Khandala B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Based on earlier Tripadvisor reviews, we decided to stay at this place. The location is very nice as it is just about 3 mins by Car from Khandala market, but at the same time is amazingly peaceful. It has 4 cottages that are provided on rent – 2 are 2 bedroom, and 1 each of 1 bedroom and 3 bedroom. Choose your cottage as per your requirement. All the cottages have a sit out area where you can enjoy morning break fast. Our room was old, but well maintained and clean. It also had a TV and refrigerator.

The caretaker Mr Sameer who stays on site was very helpful. Lunch/Dinner has a very homely taste. Only thing is that it has to ordered 2-3 hours in advance as they do not have a running kitchen and food is prepared only on order. But the homely taste is worth this small inconvenience.

I had many many visits to this Hide Out owned by Mr & Mrs Oberio and managed by Mr Sameer alongwith few huge and fierce looking Huge Sized Pet Dogs. I have been there with family several times, alone many times and personal friends number of times. Always the experience has been very good. Its basically a Nursery too and you can see many Cactus, Flowers, Fruit Plants. The Valley View is very nice. It is the Best Stay when it is raining with strong winds. Just sit and relax in the Veranda --- or like me dance, without rhythm, in the rains in the Garden. Sip your Long Drink and drench in the rains and raise your mouth open upwards and swallow the rain drop and chill. I love it.

No Food available basically, just home made food. You have to explain how you want your food but they will make the way they know - just one type, same taste everytime. Never mind, just enjoy the food and sometimes just walk down, cross the Road and walk up to The Dukes Retreat for Food. But take your own drinks in the Nursery.

Beds are just normal, lower middle class type. Never mind, what you get here is tranquility and nature; you are with the Mother Nature, take the Sneh and relax . For Check Out Sameer is somewhat Rude. Because they do not allow even 30 minutes which is very awkward. hen the Check Out time 10 AM Come you feel like you are Kicked out of the Resort.

All together it is Great and I am again going there on very soon.

Weekend Nursery is an ideal stay option for those who wish to be away from crowds/shops/malls/loud music etc.

Contact Person. The Manager, Mr Sameer Cell No: 985021715.

Location. From Khandala take the Old Mumbai Pune road, drive towards Mumbai. On this road to your right you will see a temple, on the left there is a big pond. 50 meters after the pond finishes take the sharp left (Kindly see photographs). After taking the left the road climbs, watch for sign boards and after 1 km the Weekend Nursery is to your left. It would be a good idea to call Sameer, he guides you in well.

Types of Accommodation. There is a choice of 1 to 4 Room huts spread in the Nursery. All of them are well kept. Amenities like TV, Refrigerator, Inverter, Geyser are all there. Each hut has sit outs and one to two small lawns.

Food and Drinks. Weekend Nursery does not have a restaurant. Meals have to be ordered two hours in advance. The food is very well prepared and the crockery/cutlery is of decent quality. The best part is the customization, one can tell his taste and the meal is prepared accordingly. The cost is slightly on the higher side but it is worth it.

Personal touch. Mr DL Oberoi the owner and Sameer live on site and any issue brought to their notice is immediately attended to. Thanks Mr Oberoi and Sameer for the care.
We hope to see you once every two months.

Room Tip: Tell Sameer your requirement, he will guide you correctly.

This is calm-little place in hilltop area of Khandala. We happen to drop in there recently AFTER 10YEARs !!

Could use is as base for all your activities at Lonavala/Khandala or just use it as a lazzing pad over a weekend. Each cottage has private sit out area, cool breeze and green surrounding relaxes you in no time. You may choose home cooked food or just ask/get the food from local market.

You could also rent these cottages for longer term, a month to a year.

We were in Khandala & suddenly decided to stay over night. After futile calling up various resorts we heaved a sigh of relief when we came to know that the cottages were available at Weekend Nursery. The cottages are tucked away in a corner of the main market where there is no active traffic. You need to go up a steep climb from the main Khanadala market to reach the destination. This is primarly a "home turned into cottage" type of an accomodation.
The Owner lives within the premisis & has build a number of individul cottages.
Staying options are wide with each individual cottage having an individual sitout. The rooms are decent & there is a cottage with 2 bedrooms for bigger groups also available. this is the best room among all with a good view, a private sitout & a small garden.
The Food is home cooked & is served from the seperate kitchen for the resort. The staff is accomodating.
The property has "singing Rocks".... these are speakers in the front area which are camoflaged in the form of rocks & is a highlight if you may call it so.
Over all an average stay.

Room Tip: if in a group, go for the cottage with 2 bedrooms which has a private sitout, good view & a smal...
