“A real abode in heaven....”

We visited the cottage with our extended family along with 2 toddlers in october 2016. The property was well kept and all amenities were readily available. The care taker kesar made amazing home cooked food be it vegetarian or non vegetarian. The view of nanda devi and other adjoining peaks was breath taking from the balcony on a no cloudy day. They have a badminton court which was fully utilized by us. Overall, it felt like a home away from home where kesar took care of all our comforts and made sure we had a good stay. He also guided us to a nearby waterfall with one of his frnd who was a great help esp with 2 toddlers.
The host - Manish was in touch with us from the time we booked this property and briefed us about the place and the amenities available / place to visit nearby etc. The day we were travelling to the property, he was in continuous touch with us to guide us the easiest route to reach the place and en route eateries where we could stop and eat / buy raw material for our consumption. A very helpful and great host.
A great holiday we spent and kids had an awesome time.
I recommend this property for family outings / friends getaways.

The duplex apartment is on a hill top with an amazing view to experience and a great weather to enjoy.
The cook/ caretaker Kesar will cook you amazing meals like mutton curry , chicken and paranthas . It was a very cozy and relaxed getaway for us , just the way we like it .
We were helped immensely by the host Manish throughout the trip .
Kesar helped us find a guide for the amazing forest trek towards the waterfall.

There are number of board games / indoor games for the family to connect and enjoy .

We would love to see the snow , next time we visit !

“An Absolutely Lovely Place to Stay.”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This place is away from all the hustle and bustle of the world.Very peaceful ,very quiet ,very beautiful in the lap of mountains. Manish's house is very well equipped with all the comforts.
I was traveling with my 9 year old son and one friend.There are two bed rooms with beautiful living space ,one on first floor and one on ground ,which gives privacy to each.. if you are traveling with friends. Every room of the cottage has an amazing mountain view.
Kesar the care taker cooked for us lovely food.And also helped us while we were trekking down to the waterfall.We felt absolutely at home .Manish is a wonderful host, he helped in every possible way to make our stay comfortable and safe.He kept in touch all the while ..since we left Delhi ..when we were in Mukteshwar and till we reached home safe.
Thank You very much for the wonderful stay.

“Simply amazing”

In order of excellence:

Chef: Kesar. His chilly chicken. His demeanor. Really helpful guy. Will help you source almost everything.

Interiors: Almost perfect for a party weekend. Wooden interiors, amazing music system, couches, mattresses, bar stools, bar, board games, stage, etc.

Location: Serene. Isolated. Bit scary reaching there because of the steep ridge but that was a plus too. Gives you a sense of adventure.

Spacious: We were 5 people but the place can EASILY accommodate 15.

Chef again: We still have a hangover from all the delicacies he prepared (non veg - chicken and mutton)

“Incredible stay and experience!”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We went from 8th-10th of Jan 2016 for celebrating my husband's bday. It was a wonderful property overlooking the Himalayas...The Himalayas were beaming to us from every nook and corner of the house! Beautiful ambience, perfect backdrop and totally peaceful. Both Manish and Kesar (the cook, local help and guide rolled into one) made every effort to make our stay comfortable, one of a kind and menorable. The food was delish, the house warm and secluded. Kesar helped me arrange a beautiful cake for my husband's bday and also did all arrangements so that we could go sightseeing around.

With Kesar's help we could visit a beautiful waterfall and go to the very edge of the fall...

Its a beautiful property and Mukhteshwar overall a very amazing hillstation away from the hustle and bustle.

I would definitely recommend this place and highly rate it in all aspects- be it stay, food, hospitality, ambience and care.

Its a beautiful cottage having an amazing scenic view around. Viewing the sunrise and the snow covered Himalayas from my bed was the thing I enjoyed the most. Cottage has possibly everything one requires for a perfect vacation !!! Kesar the caretaker is a very humble person, helps you with practically everything, loved his food. Manish the owner was also very helpful. He will take care of all your needs, will guide you with the ways and will also let you know places to be visited.

On a whole me and my family were very happy and contended with the cottage, it gave us a perfect family vacation :) Will surely suggest others to visit this place, I am sure we will share the same reviews.

Thanks Manish and Kesar again !!!
