“An unforgettable experience !!!”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

I travelled to This resort with my husband and my son . The experience was out of the world . I'd heard about their amazing service and hospitality as my cousin visited it last year .Great rooms , nice decor , lovely and breath taking view , amazing tracks ,fantastic ambience, nature walks and tasty food .Our stay was made extra special by the staff .The food was delicious and catered to our needs .Excellent cool weather during summer and surrounding apple orcahrd makes it a perfect place for a vacation .We did not feel the need to step out of the resort for the 4 days we were there .Execllent food made by Chef Dhyan Chand Ji . The hospitality and warmth of the staff and the very welcoming nature of the owners is reason enough to go back to this property .Will visit it again in Sept 2013 .
Very strongly recommended to fellow travellers !!! Book as much in advance as you can . We didn't get to stay as many days as we wanted to beacuse the property was all booked on the last 3 days of our vacation .

We stayed here just for 1 night and here is the experience:
On the first look, the resort seemed to offer a very good experience.
When I opened the doors of the cottage, I smiled and was pretty happy with the room that we would be staying in.
It was quiet spacious and very neatly maintained, with all basic amenities. It has a good balcony with the valley view.

As the day passed, we spent the evening exploring the resort.
It has 4 big cottages, 6 small , dining area and common room.
Whole of the area is well maintained, including the apple orchards.

Stay wise, it is a good place, however, when it came to meals, we were very much disappointed. They did not offer any room service, so we missed eat-out in our balcony.
The food itself wasn’t that sumptuous. Dinner did not have had any variety as compared to the bucks that they charged.


Another thing that we wished was to have a phone in the room for the room service. Every time, we needed something, we had to stroll through the resort for somebody available to help.

Overall, an average experience if you have already stayed at such similar home cottages.

Room Tip: Choose from the big cottages that they offer.

We were a group of three families with teenage kids and all of us had a super time here. We enjoyed the serene and pristine environment away from the hustle bustle of our daily lives in Gurgaon. Ended up reading a jeffery archer lying down in a hammock , playing cards with friends and of course to add to this peaceful luxury some wine and cherries.
Food was great and the service excellent. Thanks Gaurav and Varsha for your hospitality .... will surely come again.

Room Tip: The new rooms are spacious and have great views.

Gaurav and his team of Pradepp, Vikram and his cook Dinesh have created a wonderful and sweet stay in the hills of Himachal Pardesh. On top of this are the breathtaking views of the valley and the hills beyond, add to it the superb service and excellent food. One can only say that Gaurav has a very good thing going for him. The place is around one year old and everything is kept simple with nice big cottgaes, clean toilets and great food. Gaurav is not trying to do everything at once but lets his guests relax and enjoy. Would like to thank for the out of way effort of care taker Pradeeep when we found out the morning of our return that our car had a flat and so was the spare tire. in torrential rains he not only got the tires repaired but got them changed also. The resort is around 475 km from Gurgaon and would advice a break in bet ween. we stopped at Timbertrail fro the night in Parwanoo. the roads are excellent and wide. at the orchard do try the chicken biryani and himachel food. No TV in the rooms was a welcome break. Will be there again in August 14th to 18th 2013. Gaurav Ji thanks for all the fun and keep it simple for a long time success.

Room Tip: All three cottages have a great view.
