A lovely little property offers a home away from home experience in idyllic conditions. It is nicely located overlooking a valley and offers a lovely view. The rooms are well designed, comfortable and clean. Fresh clean linen and a welcoming visage are what the rooms offer you on arrival. The wide veranda outside the rooms offers a convenient sit out offering a lovely view and good sunshine. The care-taker couple, Ramesh and Bharti are very welcoming and have a very positive attitude and a never say die spirit. They will willingly go out of their way to do all that has to be done to make your stay comfortable. The food is amazing using fresh ingredients from the kitchen garden. Fresh home-made pickles and salads complete the meal. The lady has that gift that separates a really good cook from one that is just satisfactory and the food served is really superlative. The fresh ingredients go a long way in enhancing the taste of the food. Had gone there with my family consisting of wife, two grown up kids and mother and they all enjoyed the stay thoroughly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- While affording homely comforts like an ante-room attached to the main living space, carpeted flooring, electric blanket, hot-air blower, a well-appointed bathroom, a long balcony giving you an excellent view of the valley, ‘TheColonel’s Cottage’ has a lot of open space for you to bask in the bright sun, and in turn enjoy sitting around a bonfire in the late evening.A place that must be on the top of the list of the tourists to Mukteshwar is the location where the great Bard Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore spent a considerable time writing Geetanjali that bagged the Nobel Prize for literature. The place is just 12 km from The Colonel's Cottage, and it will be our pleasure and pride to take you down to visit the 'Writers' Bungalow', as it is called. ... more less
