“HIDDEN JEWEL, PEACEFUL HOLIDAY.”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Small, Nice and very beautiful cottage style hill resort with 3 cottage rooms, good green lawn, hygienic kitchen and fruit trees (peach & banana). It really gives you the feeling that you are staying in your own holiday home. It is different from other regular hotels and holidays. It is just 6 hrs, derive from delhi. we stayed there for 2 nights but after reaching there we felt that our holiday should be for min. 3 nights. we stayed in honeymoon cottage (one step behind). it is very beautiful with good space and big bathroom. you can enjoy beautiful views from your rooms window with a cup of tea or you can read a book from a big and nice collection provided in room..joginder ji & cook Ramji along with his entire family is always there to serve you as per your choice. they are really very helpful. food was very good and hygienic. fresh and homely style. badolia temple waterfall is just 1 km. away from writers hill. one can enjoy trekking also. we reached at the top of the temple after 20 min. hard trekking but after reaching there we found a holy pond from where waterfall starts. views were very beautiful from there. we went to renukaji temple. we did boating there. There is a mini zoo near lake which is spread in around 3 kms. area. and if you dont want to walk you can take your vehicle there after paying just Rs. 50 as entry fee for vehicle.Really very nice experience. we would love to go again and again. thanks to Mr. Munish pal who allow us to come even after we postponed our holiday. Great hospitality. 110% recommendable place. Please go for 3 nights if going from delhi.

Room Tip: If you are going with kids of in family of 4person you should take the super luxury cottage (my name...

The place is not very far from NCR and thus the ride was comfortable. There are 3 very tastefully decorated and highly spacious cottages. The bedroom is huge with a separate area for reading with lots of good books already there for you to choose. Separate sit-out to enjoy nature. The bathroom are equally big and very clean. Home made food is delicious though there is less variety or options.
We enjoyed the beautiful water fall which just 1 km from the resort. The whole atmosphere is very refreshing and rejuvenating. People who want to take a break from busy life and just rest, this place is ideal.

AUTHOR: DR SUDHAKAR NATARAJAN, CHIEF VET OFFICER, INDO TIBETAN BORDER POLICE.
No fuel fumes.No blaring horns or loud speakers. No distractions. No rush. No troubles.All that you can hear are the rustle of leaves, the melodious call of forest birds and the soothing din of crickets and insects. This is a place to heal. This is the place to introspect. This is the place to peep deep into your soul and rediscover yourself after removing the layers of sooth that had accumulated during this rat-race called life. This place gives you the wisdom that in a rat race, even if you come first, you will still remain a rat. Therefore slow down. Breath. Take in the fresh and crisp mountain air and rejuvenate your battered soul. Not only your soul, but also your body. The organic food served at this resort will infuse you with new vim, vigour and vitality. The onions and tomatoes taste different. All the damage that the burgers and pizzas have done to your arteries will be reversed.
And if you are a book lover, this is the place to enjoy reading over a hot mug of coffee, intermittently relaxing your eyes with the spectacular panoramic view of the Himachali Mountains.
This is the place to take your pet along. To hell with all the so called star hotels like Taj, Maurya etc that deny your family the pleasure of enjoying your holidays with your dog. Why keep your darling dog in a kennel, when there are places like this where you can right royally take the dog. My dog Kelly really enjoyed her stay, and freely moved about the resort.
We had gone to celebrate the B'day of my daughter Avantika. The management of the resort personally ensured that a cake was ordered, on the house, and a grand party was arranged for me, my wife Sharmila and the birthday girl. Beer and drinks were also arranged without any problem and we danced the night away to the music of forest sounds.
We stayed at Writer’s Hill for 3 nights and 4 days.
Great place. Great stay.
My dog Kelly agrees with a big "Bow Bow" !!
Thanks Munish, Ramji and Joginder.

Room Tip: a great place for rest and recuperation

This place is a perfect weekend getaway! :) We went there with a bunch of friends during the winter months and the place had its own charm during that time of the year! We had a great time with bonfire and friends accompanied by awesome grilled food. Next day we enjoyed hot chai and parathas made by Ramji.
The cottages are tastefully decorated and it feels like a perfect weekend getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back again. Highly recommend this place.

We visited this place to take a refreshing break from city life........AND it turned out to be extremely worthwhile..the property is very well maintained,newly built and very well taken care of.....Mr Munish; the owner and the caretaker will leave no stone unturned to make you feel home away from home

PROS(Lots of them)

Location:perfect...All four cottages are right at heart of nature....Amazing view of hills from cottages and dining area.......Drive from delhi was very nice...scenic from kala amb onwards

Property:Superb....cottages are newly built, spaceous...The best thing was the collection of books and CDs in all rooms for people of all ages and tastes.....In super luxury room where we stayed,there was a separate study and the experience of reading with a cup of tea looking over shivalik hills through glass wall of the room was awesome...

Food:Ramji the cook prepared tasty food..It is included in package if you dont book through groupon...

We have visited in 1st week of May 2013 and had very pleasant stay at writer's hill. Very good home cooked food by Ramji (cook) and personal attention was given to us by Mr. Munish.
The place is on way from Jamta to Dadau. See the "Milestone" Dadau 9 Km. which is just infront of the place.

This is a lovely , well decorated three hut homestay tucked into a hillside around 25 Km ahead of Nahan in himachal. The road ahead from Nahan is not well maintained and it is better to reach before dusk. It took us around 1 hour ahead of Nahan.There is absolutely nothing to do and that is the beauty of the place. Ofcourse you can read , play indoor games and take long walks but do not plan on any activities. Just stay inside , chill and enjoy the silence. The food is tasty ,well cooked and menu is on demand. The place can accomodate upto 10-12 people with ease. Going with extended family is recommended. We were 7 and took two rooms during diwali last year. Munish , the owner looked after us well and even got some lights and crackers for diwali not to mention sweets. Around 15 Km ahead is the famous Renuka temple. Do not stay here if you want to visit Nahan , it is too far. I recommend this for families , honeymooners and people with small kids.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic take any.
