As soon as we reached the cottage we felt that we were in a different world. Very serene and peaceful...
We loved staying at the Secret Cottage. It's a beautiful home with all the amenities, good interiors, a lovely garden and great views of the surrounding mountains. And it overlooks a river!
The hosts stay in the next cottage and were very warm and hospitable people. The home cooked meals were enjoyable.
Thanks to the hosts, we had the chance to visit an apple orchard, view the snow capped mountains and spend time with the locals. This was the highlight of our Himachal experience!
I'd definitely recommend the Secret Cottage!

We visited with friends for five nights towards the end of April, the cottage is new, large and very well appointed it carries all the creature comforts for an enjoyable vacation. The location just off the highway in Bandrol is superb, a stones throw away from Naggar and Kullu with stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
Loved the stone exterior and all wood flooring in the cottage. Also an ideal getaway as you are not in the hustle and bustle of the two major towns of Kullu and Manali but both are very accessible for food and recreation.
Our first family (children aged 5,8,11) trip to India surpassed our expectations! This cottage was to European standards but was next to a local residence so you feel you have a genuine experience. From the cottage we had great trips to the Buddhist monastery,
The Owners orchard in the Hills, shopping for scarves in Kullu and the Hindu temple and hustle and bustle in Manali were all highlights but the great cultural experience and spectacular views are the real secret!
I'd highly recommend this cottage - don't forget some warm clothes as well as your summer ones!
