Sandhya is a quaint village hut in the Himalayas. It was restored from an original structure that is believed to be more more than 60-70 years old. As a result, it has a unique charm about it- little quirks that give us a glimpse how local people lived here and their sensibilities. For example, the door heights are always very low- just above 4 ft- so do mind your heads when you enter! Sandhya offers a chance to experience life in an authentic mountain home.
We are a fun family with two animals, 4 local villagers helping us on our farm and my daughter and I- and we would love to have you join the crew. My cottage is next door to Sandhya.
We are situated in a rural setting and are surrounded by forests and other homes in the village. Road access is about a 15 minute walk. It is ideal for quite time, walking in the countryside and hiking in the Mukhteshwar forest. There is a lovely NGO-Aarohi just around the corner. They have a shop with local products and a charming school for local children. Villages are very idyllic here so walking is the best pastime. Closest town Almora is about 50 minutes drive away. Mukhteshwar is 40 minutes drive. There are plenty of hiking and cycling options in the area.
  • This is a must visit. If you want to spend some time relaxing whilst being surrounded by beautiful mountains then this is the place. Caretakers and Sheeba all are so amazing that you won't really need much. Must try the local cuisines the amazing cook makes - just let them know beforehand and get to taste amazing food. I am so grateful I have found this place. Going to visit again!!!

  • Sheeba's place is located a 10-15 walk from the Satkhol Himalayan Ashram, where you will have to park your car. Would recommend to pack light as the walk down is comfortable but while returning the walk up to your car with a heavy bag might be extremely difficult. The view from the place is outstanding and if you are lucky you will catch a glimpse of the Himalayan peaks and they seemed so much more closer than I expected. Maansingh Babu, the caretaker will treat you to simple and delicious pahadi food and will take extremely good care of you. Don't hesitate to engage him in a conversation about the place and the history, you will not be disappointed. If you need wifi connectivity, Sheeba has made good arrangements. However, the cloud cover might result in patchy connectivity but once it clears the connectivity is as good as at any other place. Highly recommended

  • The Sandhya homestay is a beautiful place to stay. If you love peace and silence of hill station, the Sandhya homestay at Satkhol is a right choice for you. The stay has a single hut with 1 living room, 1 bed room, 1 kichen and washroom with all the basic amenities. The stay has cook for your anytime need ginger tea or dinner, but they only stay at sandhya till the evening. After that, in the whole ddarkness of night your loved one, silent trees and starry sky are the companion of your wonderful experience of life without digital entertainment. You can cook for your own taste, for this caretaker of the stay will provide you fresh vegetables. But if you dont have vegetarian apetite at all, then you need to struggle for non-veg, as like the other remote hill stations, the place also have less availability of chicken, but you can easily get the breakfast time boiled egg or Egg curray at dinner... The best thing of the stay is mesmerizing view of Himalayas, at footstep, there is dark eye soothing green Pine forest, and parallel to horizon, the snow capped ranges of himalayan peaks started. The major peaks which are easily visible from here are, Mt. Trishul, Mt. Nandadevi, Mt. Panchachuli etc. The outside landscape and architecture of the little hut will definitely attract you to do not leave the place, rather convince you to come another time... .

  • Sandhya is a charming little cottage nestled on a mountainside. It is very well appointed, has a functional and well stocked kitchen, a fireplace and a garden with stunning views of snow covered peaks. Though Sheeba was away she was very responsive, and the caretakers - Mansingh Ji, Bhagwati and others - were extremely hospitable and left no stone unturned to make us feel comfortable. Highly recommended if you are looking for peace, tranquility and some time away from the city.

    Aditya2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • So, the place that was in my dreams since so many years does exist in real! Charming classic story book wooden house, on top of a hill, in the lap of nature! The himalayan ranges seen from the property are the best views in the entire Kumaon area in my opinion. The place is so thoughtfully designed, with all the comforts that one could want, and yet no element is wasted. The house just fits in just perfect with the rhythm of the nature around. Also, Sheeba is so quick to reply and so eager to help. Mansingh bubu is an amazing person and you can feel the love he has for the property and the surroundings. My only regret is not spending more days there. But I will, in the near future.

    Kanan2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • perfect place for serene and peaceful experience with a fabulous view that complemented.

A sure shot revisit place and would be recommending to frns too...thanks sheeba n all d bst...

    Utkarsh2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage Sandhya is located at one of the most wonderful and peaceful places near Satkhol Ashram. The retreat offers silent atmopshere with just nature all around. Set amidst lovely forest with views of the himalayan peaks and blue sky, the cottage has all the amenities one can ask for. Surely worth staying to those looking for peace and quiet ambience. There is a nice book collection for book lovers and nearby nature trails offer adventure to those wishing to explore the forest.

    Tarun2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Sheeba's has been a memorable one. We stayed in Sandhya 1. It's a perfect space for a couple of people . Nice and cute touches all round the place. Most beautiful garden that I have ever stayed at. Conversations with Bubu (also the caretaker of the property), was fulls of beads of wisdom unlike our urban sense of "life". I highly recommend this place to people who are longing more just a stay. Though don't expect the stay too, to be any lesser of standards than vibes around

    Sukoon 3 is part of a quiet homestead in Satoli, in the Kumaon Himalayas. The village, at 6000 feet, has a mild temperate climate, pleasant summers and bracing cold winters. The forest is a haven for Himalayan and other migratory birds. It is for those wishing solitude or select company. We welcome, thinkers, philosophers, painters, writers, musicians, or anyone else needing a break from urban existence. A perfect getaway for a family wishing to discover a new way of being together.
    This is the upper suite of the cottage with a 12X12 feet room, with an oak floor. The balcony looks out onto a dense oak forest and the valley below with a view of the distant Central Himalayan snow peaks.
    The Sukoon homestead has 5 fairly private cottages and 8 acres of mostly forested land. Unmatched views of the central Himalayas. Set in a lush oak forest. Flush with pure spring water all through the year. There are young people in the cottages who are working or have chosen to live in the mountains. The room is well lit, ventilated and cosy. Local shops with essential dry food stock / milk / eggs / chicken / vegetables at Naulikan (Aarohi office), some 20-30 minutes walk.
  • Sukoon is a beautiful retreat, away from the busy city life. Sushil is a great host- very prompt to reposnd, and clear and concise in the details and instructions. The property is lush and beautiful with nice hiking options. We had a wonderful time!

    Apoorva2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this place is amazing. Dr. Sushil Sir made sure that we feel at home and welcomed. He is very helpful whether it is arranging a cab, porter, food or giving us directions for walks around the property. Care taker at the property was always a call away & he went with us on short trekk and shared stories of leopard which we enjoyed around a bonfire. Food prepared by help Pushpa was yummy & simple. I will definitely like to visit this beautiful place again.

    Piyush2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sukoon is a little place of rest and sweet continuum. The room is perfectly contained for two. There is very little that separates you from the forest. Inside it is warm and we were happily nested. Expect an absolute confrontation with yourself, what you eat, how you breathe, how you see, how you relate and where you go.

    Tabasheer2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A traditional style room, with basic necessities is all you need in a place like Mukteshwar. The surrounding is lush green and the place is away from touristy spots. A good place to be just with yourself/closed ones and spend some quality time.

    Sebastine2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • While the place is exactly as beautiful as the pictures show, what is more beautiful is the hospitality Sushil and his team (especially Gopal, the care taker) take into consideration. I went to stay at Sukoon on my own and was absolutely sure of my safety in a place as isolated and green and lovely as this. I am sure of returning for a longer stay. If you are planning to go alone, it's a complete heads up. Don't shirk, just go!

    Avantika2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most idylic setting. We so loved getting to explore the area and relax in the beautiful homely cottage. Our 3-week retreat out here was exactly what we needed. We couldn't have asked for a friendlier more accommodating host. Thank you Sushil, Durga & Gopal for all of your help. All the best Rob & Meg

    Meg2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our country is replete with options for travellers and yet I found myself very happily heading to Sukoon for a second time. Tranquil setting and very non-intrusive hospitality, here you are left to enjoy quality me-time but any kind of assistance is just a holler away. Tip: If you can walk take the long road to Sukoon because it is a great walk. Walk not trek as the path levels out pretty quickly.

    Saborni2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • It's a wonderful settlement of 3-4 mud huts in the middle of a forest, completely isolated from any form of urbanisation; the nearest road is also a 15 minutes walk away. A must go if you wish to spend time alone from the world with the chirping birds and whistling winds. While all the basics like food, water, etc. are taken care of, just don't expect any hotel-like facilities. Will definately visit this place again!

  • Sukoon is not a homestay, it's a lifetime experience. It's a piece of dream set in pure wilderness. If you love silence, if you love solitude and above all if you love nature in its primoridal charm, and want to feel it in every pore of your body, stay in Sukoon for a couple of nights. First of all, the hike. We loved it the most. It's thrilling, and yet not too demanding, and at places through apparently impenetrable overgrowth of ferns and other mountainous plants. Rest on the way and look around. You'll love the view. Just when you feel a bit tired, you reach the cottage. And the very sight of it is pure joy. The home is clean, sensibly organized, well maintained, comfortable without a hint of luxury, and could not have been better located. You are well attended to by the caretaker, Gopal, and the pet dog, Mili. He's polite and courteous. She is friendly and disciplined. They both are always one call away. If you want, Gopal will add to your sense of adventure by telling you stories about leopards coming very close to the cottage. The best part of the cottage is the balcony. It offers 180° unobstructed view of the hills and forests, and on a clear day, the snow-capped peaks of Chowkhamba and Trishul. Sit there all day and night and you'll have your money worth.

  • We travelled in the month of October first week. We were four of us and it was an amazing trip. The location was mesmerising. One needs to trek for around 15-20 mins to reach the cottage but once you reach the place, all the trekking, travelling will be worth the efforts. The cottage is just as it is named ‘Sukoon’. The best part of the cottage is privacy. We carried all groceries and vegetables etc and we cooked ourselves. Even otherwise the cottage is laded with all the necessary items required for cooking. The help didi is also very cooperative. One can trekk further upwards and can go to a point where the sunset can be seen. Coming to the cottage, everything inside the cottage gives a very homely feeling as if it is done by you. The balcony opening towards the jungle is as quiet as possible. So, if you are looking for a place to spend the weekend only with your partner or your friends, this place should be one in the top. Thank you Sushil Jee for making our trip memorable with your beautiful house and impromptu help with all the smallest possible querry. Thank you!

  • The place is apt for a perfect holiday. The relaxed environment, the scenic set up and the cozy spaces of Sukoon are amazingly put together by the contributors. We were 100% satisfied and it turned out, we missed it the moment we had to leave! I should say, cheerful people, green-serene & calm environment, cute dogs, the scented orchards, sweet birds, wildflowers, tall pine trees (and so much more) cute-ed up the place for an ideal holiday you could imagine. My one suggestion to the visitors would be; "not to carry your electrical gadgets except for mobile if you want to experience this mountain-jewel ." Totally worth the visit and stay. I highly recommend Sukoon, as its name has it - for a peaceful and lovely stay.

    Koogela2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time, great place to relax and unwind. Peaceful and tranquil. Completely refreshed. We would recommend a visit.

    Sidharth2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay I will start with location and balcony view which was superb. Villa was very good and comfortable. The first impression was excellent, Durga didi is very kind and helpful. we felt like home. I would like to thank Dr. Sushil, helped me through out the trip starting from cab, sightseeing. He managed everything nicely without any hassle ,from Check-in till checkout everything was flawless. Breataking location and cool atmosphere. I hope to be back for a longer visit. Thanks

    Gate2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at Sukoon. The name is apt for the place. Sushil was not there at the property when we reached but he made sure that we have seamless checkin. The staff Durga Di and Prem were really helpful and ever smiling "touch wood". Our favourite place in the entire villa was the balcony. We spent most of our day admiring the beautiful Himalayan peaks. It's a must must visit if you are looking for a good break from mundnae city life.

    Shiv2019-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Accessibility: To reach the stay, you need to hike for 20 minutes. As the description already mentions it, we were well prepared. Mr. Sushil can arrange for a porter if told in advance. The stay in itself: It is a beautifully constructed place made out of stone and wood with a contemporary touch. It is designed in such a way that you would not need to turn on any light during the day. Equipped with everything that you would need, the place has a wonderful view, an added outdoor shower, arrangement for a bonfire, comfortable and clean bedding. Overall the place is super clean and well maintained. People: Though we could not meet Mr. Sushil himself, the caretaker Durga is extremely helpful. The neighbors in the community are very friendly and a delight to talk to as well. If you plan to sit back and relax in one place, it is the perfect spot.

    The magic starts at the break of dawn when Cuckoo notices it and fills the environment with its distinctive koo-koo. Soon the Himalayan Bulbul, Sunbird, Swallow, Dove and several others join the choir. White Haven in Mukteshwar is dotted with Apple, Plum, Peach, Pear trees and home to numerous singing birds. The Resort sits on a ridge, amidst endless fruit garden, offering an awe-inspiring experience, with the view of the snowy Himalayan peaks, forests, and valleys.
    The home overlooks the valley and you can witness mesmerizing sunset from the balcony. Within private Oak forest there are Peach, Plum and Apple trees and we grow fully organic vegetables in our farm. A walk of few minutes takes you to a spot from where you can enjoy a mesmerizing view of snow covered Himalayan peaks.
    We are secludedly nestled in a private Oak forest of 8,64,000 Sq ft.

  • Had nice and peaceful experience as it was little away from annoying traffic at a very reasonable cost . Host was very responsive

    Yogendra2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Suggest to come here and enjoy the view and enjoy the nature

    Palakshi2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful and we had an amazing stay at Harish's house. It's kept well and had an insane view of the Himalayas right from the balcony. Only one tip: people who are not used to the harsh cold weather should not stay here during December January as the house gets extremely cold and unbearable for people who aren't used to the temperature. Harish however is extremely helpful in making heater and bonfire arrangements

    Shivangi2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in the heart of the mountains Harish is a fantastic host Took care of our needs and provided information on places to see It's a perfect getaway place for someone seeking some calm

    Dhruv2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • The beautiful two-room cottage is ideal for a peaceful vacation, especially when you want to switch off from the everyday monotony and just sit back, relax and take in the beautiful views of the mountains. To reach the cottage, one has to walk down for a kilometre on proper hilly terrain, which seems extremely laborious at first but gets easier each day (plus, it's good exercise). The two rooms have a shared bathroom and kitchen. Our room was spick and span, very clean, had a fireplace, and our host had made up the bed very cosily since it had been snowing a few days before we turned up. The balcony outside has a beautiful view of the Himalayas, with the majestic Nanda Devi gleaming in the distance. There is a gorgeous view of the mountains from within the room too -- you just need to move the curtains aside to see the beauty, which is what we did during sunrise when it was freezing outside. Harish, the host, is very helpful and gracious as well as a great cook. Omelette, bread-butter and tea for breakfast is a staple, and he will cook lunch and dinner as well if you ask for it (or you can eat outside). Since he is a local resident, he knows all the places around and will also take you for small treks and excursions if you tell him in advance. I would suggest just one addition to the cottage -- a microwave in the kitchen, since it would be nice to heat things up when the temperature dips below zero degrees. All in all, it was a memorable trip and I would recommend the cottage for stays.

    Moonmoon2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We checked in as a guest and checked out as good friend. To sum up our experience of staying at Harishji's place for 6 days. If you are an adventure seeker and don't mind the no frill experience then this is the place to for. The majestic view of the mountains from this place should be the single most reason to stay here. Go for it!.

    Sanal2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • A lot has been said about this place already. So I will talk about things that are not mentioned. I am a budget traveller and always on a hunt to stay at places that are away from the crowd and commercialisation. The property is located in the premises of Simtola Eco Forest which is in a village called Paparshali. The village is 10 kms away from Almora and is quite secluded by the din of the market. If you are looking to stay away from the crowd, this is the place. The view from the balcony is great. You can spend an entire day just sutting here doing nothing. But I wont suggest that. Coz there's a pine forest waiting to be explored. You can even ask Harish Ji to accompany you for the trek. There's a nominal fee he charges. About the house. It's a two storey house. Floor one has two rooms with a patio/balcony. And second floor has one room with an open terrace. Both offer mesmerising views. The place is sparkling clean and kept in really good condition. It's minimalistic. And has everything one needs to survive in the woods. So don't expect anything fancy. Do carry your own toiletries. About Harsh ji. He's a wonderful host. The thing about him is, it comes to him naturally because he loves doing it. Unlike other hosts, he's the one who is actually managing the property. And is available for you. I never had to call him even once. He respects your space and privacy. What i love about this trip is our conversations. We had had endless conversations; from politics to farming to city life to his passion for chess. You can always challenge him for a game which you will lose in less than ten minutes. About food. They say when traveling you should explore the local cuisine. And Harish ji do spend a lot of time preparing for your meals. So do ask him to cook local authentic food for you. How to reach the place If you are a budget traveller, you can take a share jeep from Almora. Almora is easily reachable from Haldwani and share cabs charge around ₹300/ From Almora you can take a share Jeep. I spent two nights here. But they didn't seem enough. I wished I had stayed longer.

    Krunal2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Harish's place is definately a home in Almora.The dedication and the sincerity with which he attends his guests is inexplicable.And the treks that he takes u to are very unusal and unique,unknown places.

And some, off the beaten path: • • • KOSI: We can help arrange for a picnic for you by the river side in Khwarab. It is a 1 hour 15 minutes drive to the river, then a short walk down-hill on the trail to the river bed. TREKS/WALKS: One of the best ways to explore the place is by foot. There are various trails going to Hartola, Bhallar, Mukteshwar, Sitla etc CHIRAG: An NGO adopting novel methods for the empowerment of rural communities. Read more about Chirag, their activities and how you can contribute to their cause, on their website (http://chirag.org)
  • We visited Ramgarh in the week of 16th June'19, I was travelling with my family including my father-in-law. It was tough to decide a vacation having my 6 yrs old highly energetic younger daughter to 76 yrs old father-in-law who just want to be comfortable. As everyone has their own preferences: kids wanted to have full fun time, we wanted to relax and father-in-law expected comfort. .... we got all these at one place.. "Keanna Cottage". Devika Aunty is so warm and welcoming that we didn't felt that we are out of home.... all of us were equally happy and relaxed. ... words are less to express our pleasure... Rooms were perfect, food was "awesome", location was great. In short everything was perfect to be hard to believe. Wish we could have an opportunity to stay longer... but can always plan next trip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED HOME STAY, BEST VIEW, COSY & COMFORTABLE :-)

  • I and my partner stayed at Achla’s for our new year celebrations to be away from the hustle bustle of the city and be closer to nature. Trust me it was worth it! She is an amazing host who is extremely adept at arranging everything and taking care of even the smallest amenities (we didn’t even have to ask). Her guest cottage is located at a vantage point that gives complete privacy as well as a beautiful view of the Himalayas. Her pet dog, Coffee is absolutely adorable wherein we being dog lovers just couldn’t stop playing with her. An amazing advantage of staying with Achla is the amazing finger-licking spread she provides at nominal charges. Her cooking is truly a treat ranging across cuisines (still cannot get over the desserts!) and that too peppered with her eclectic conversations. For us the stay was truly wonderful.

  • What an amazing place! It was more than what the pictures showed or the reviews described. We cannot say enough good things about Manzar. Lovely views, great layout, tranquil, exceptional facilities and services. Loved the detailing. Offers lovely walks - we loved the road below. Fabulous meals, loving pets, caring staff and it was everything we could ask for.

    Priti2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved every bit of it. Would 100% recommend.

    Nikita2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Manzar for four nights as a couple. The property is located in Sathkol, a truly blessed spot of land, far from the madding crowds, with stunning views of the Kumaon Hills and the Greater Himalayas in the distance. The property is beautifully designed, clearly built with love and to be lived in, unlike the holiday homes one normally expects in these parts. The guest cottage is clean, well furnished and has a sit out to take in the views. We really appreciated the privacy afforded by being situated away from the main house. The host, Achla, is very personable and graciously opened up her home and library to us. We were lucky to eat with her everyday because she is a fantastic cook and conversationalist. We learned a lot about Sathkol, life in the hills and the best hiking trails nearby. As a bonus we also got to hang out with her dog Coffee and kitten Piku who are the real stars of Manzar. Overall, this was a wonderful experience made possible by a true ‘super host’, and we are already discussing how to make it back again.

    Rajat2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Achla is a thoughtful and caring host. She is better than a super host. Manzar is a quiet, idyllic comfortable place. Gorgeous in natural settings. The food is just awesome.

    R R2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time on our weekend excursion to Achla place, which is right in the lap of nature. Achla is a great host and is always forthcoming with local tips which came in really handy. The food is yum, overall a wonderful experience.

    Sagar2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • A group of 4 of us had visited this place and we actually had the best New Year 2019. The place was silent, serene and beautiful. Our host Ms. Achla was the most humble, cooperative, hospitable and honest. She made sure our stay was warm and comfortable. Her staff provided us with anything and everything. All in all the song of silence is a must visit place and the best getaway from your chaotic city life. silence is the new loud :)

    Vishesh2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • First of all thanks to Achla ji for being such a wonderful host. We are now back in Delhi and already missing the lovely abode of Achla ji at Manzar. She has shared her house and lovely atmosphere with us with lot of care and love. The house is located a few steps above the road and perfectly located for a panoramic view of the Kumaon Himalaya ranges. The two room windows is where you see them from and search within. The rooms have a garden around that are washed in lovely sunshine in the mornings. The hospitality is outstanding and Achla ji character, compassion and love is etched in every part of the house and well reared garden. You would love the place if you love solitude and want to come to the mountains for stillness rather than striking off tourist destinations. The rooms are warm and cozy and small details whether from tea maker kit to small kitchen items are very well thought of. Achla ji is also a great at helping out all the way and full of inherent kindness. Can’t forget engaging conversations next to a fireplace after a wonderful dinner. The food is awesome and all cooked with natural ingredients. Achla Ji takes great care and pleasure in serving you and after a long day you look forward to the wonderful meals she serves you. Coffee the dear pet is so lovely and showers you with such affection. Prakash and Jaya the household helps look for your small needs and are ever ready to help. In total the place is a bliss in lap of nature. The house reflects the warmth and affection and you can’t remain untouched by it. You can’t go wrong. Try it and don’t miss an opportunity to spend some time there.

    The Writers Retreat in the Himalayas promises a rejuvenating experience. Located off a beautiful hill road and adjoining a jungle stretch which is frequently used by wildlife to cross-over, the Retreat unfolds an interesting living with nature.
    Unwind yourself at this charming retreat with great views of the Himalayan peaks, lush green surroundings and walk around the area. If you are lucky, you may sight wildlife on the adjoining jungle patch that works as the corridor for wildlife to move across. Please remember, the clock of this area is different from the clock of metro cities. So enjoy your time, relax and recharge yourself.
    A short trek will take you to the nearby temple top. A longer 2-3 hour trek will take you into the jungles below ( with the help of a guide). For seniors, a short walk to the nearby Sitla mode or Dobatta is recommended. Drive to the famous Shiva temple (mukteshwar) takes 15 minutes through the fascinating jungle road. You can also visit a local villager's house and a natural spring down below.
  • Great and peaceful place to relax for few days !!!

    Subrajeet2018-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had an awesome stay at Writers Retreat. This property gives a perfect view of snow clad Himalayan range and Kumaun valley. Caretaker Lalit Ji and Harish were really helpful and always available on our call. Property is better then how it looks in the pictures. We were a group of cousins and friends who stayed here for 2 nights and loved every second of our stay. Collection of books available is just a delight to readers. Sunrise and sunset view of Himalayas from this property is mesmerizing and soothing.

    Ashish2018-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Raju has an amazing place, we had a great time ! I would highly recommend his place to people who want to have a quiet vacation or to spend quality time with loved ones! Lalitji was very hospitable,kind and helpful! We loved our short stay here and would come here for a visit soon!

    Dhruv2017-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • In the most quaint and sceninc of places, this homestay is bound to take your breath away! The hosts were super awesome and super friendly. I made a mistake in booking but Raju very kindly adjusted so that we don't suffer losses. From the word go, he was super helpful... from guiding us with the route to seeing to it that we had something to eat when reached his place in the afternoon (we started at 6:30 am from Delhi and reached Rajus's place by 2:30 pm... so this place is quite accessible and easily motarable).. At Rajus place, we had the entire house to ourselves. Beautiful, peaceful, secluded (while being close to the local market).. the entire house has beautiful wooden finish and smells awesome fresh wood. The furniture around is minimal yet sufficient. There are books you can pick up and read sitting out at the verendah. The caretaker Lalitji is also a super cool and helpful guy. He took it upon his person to ensure we had a happy stay... kept chatting with us, guided us around the place, took care of our F&B requirements (though mostly we cooked our own food barring one time when we requested a local delicacy to be cooked for us and what the cook made was very delicious)... The best part though is the view this place offers and the quiet it gives you.. you can sit in the balcony, gaze at the view/stars and write if you want to or dream or meditate/ listen to music/ do some soul searching or whatever.. this place just does not disappoint you :)

    Shrimun2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Superb Experience! Tucked away in a quaint, rustic hamlet called 'Satkhol' near Mukteshwar, this beautiful wooden Swiss-style cottage overlooking the mighty Nanda Devi and adjoining peaks offers a 180 degree panoramic view of the valley below. The plush interiors of the cottage instantly makes you fall in love with it! One could spend hours gazing at the distant mountains right from the bed, or perhaps catch a nap or read a book on the hammock outside. The caretakers are also very helpful. Perfect for a small family to spend moments together or for a romantic getaway. Definitely, a much recommended place if you wish to avoid the crowd and seek solitude.

  • This place makes you want to come again and again. Such homely feeling and hospitality that I never wanted to come back. Mr. Saurabh, the host took us to unexplored jungle treks and the late evening went by playing ludo and listening to local tales. It's the only place where I could see so much snow and still pristine and ended up making a little ☃️! I wish I had stayed for atleast 3 days. Definitely have to come again to explore waterfalls and spring water points. One thing that is to die for is Pankaj's cooking! Do try crispy chicken!

    Kriti2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • True to its name, excellent stay, quality rooms , friendly staff, also cant forget the epic view from the room and the cafe above the clouds and also the amazing local sightseeing experience. And also the host Mr. Saurabh Thapa did a great job in keeping our stay peaceful and comfortable. Cheers!!

    Saksham2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Saurabh is an amazing host. Very helpful and welcoming. The food was delicious too. The view is to die for.. just amazing. Highly recommend.

    Abhishek2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • The idea of staying in Mukteshwar is itself a splendid one amidst the pure nature all around you. It's an escape from the buzz of the city life and perfect destination if you love peace & nature. Our time during early September blessed us with Apple Season, chilling cold, rains and of course the mesmerizing view of Nanda Devi range. But you need luck and clear sky to witness the snow capped mountains during the Sun Rise time. The entire team of Shivaya, starting from Saurabh was very hospitable and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. We were lucky enough to meet the sweet old lady (Saurabh's mother) whose love and care made us feel more homely than ever. During our stay of 4 days, I felt it as if I was in my own Home for vacation. So well acquainted and friendly, sharing so many things that connected us like family members. A stay at Shivaya will definitely delight one individual with lots of wonderful memories to share and make them come back again and again.

    Nichi Raj2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Saurabh's place gives one of the most beautiful view in Mukteshwar and the proximity to Chauli ki Jali and market is definitely something which adds value to the entire stay. The food was delicious, the hospitality was extremely warm and the stay just warmed our hearts in the cold weather.

    Rubal2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • One of our groups best experiences. If you are a traveller looking for peace of mind with calm surroundings and the view to die for, Shivaya home stay is the place. Just go for a trek alone in the wild or with your friends, the experience is amazing because the view is amazing and quiteness and calmness. The view from the hotel is beautiful.

  • If you want to relax from the hustle life of city and want peace and serenity it is one of the best places to visit. Saurabh's mom the host is so loving and caring what gives u a homely feel away from home. Her home made food, local trip guidance, bonfire arrangements, phadi fresh fruits was so amazing for us. The homestay is perfect location. The famous Chauli ki Jali is jus 10 mins walk from there. Staying there will make you forget all your tensions. Had a wonderful stay. Would suggest my friends to do visit this. Thanks Saurabh and a special thanks to Auntie for such a caring and lovely welcome.

    Srishti2018-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • Mukteshwar is located 50 Km away from the noisy and crowded marketplace of Nainital and offers a very calm and serene environment. The landscapes and elevation of the place accounts for a breathtaking beauty that you can never have enough of. Coming to Saurabh's place, it is located at the end of Mukteshwar town and very near to the popular tourist spot, chauli ki jali. Aunty, (Saurabh's mother) maintaines the place with utmost care and also provides homely food if so required. The house premises also provides an excellent view of the neighbouring mountains and a wonderful night view of Almora town. The amazing location of the place coupled with the extremely warm hospitality of aunty makes Saurabh's place a must stay at Mukteshwar.

  • If you're looking for a "homely" experience in the hills then look no further! The cottage is beautifully located, is spotlessly clean, and the host, Mr. Ajay Kapoor, is just amazing! I'm most definitely coming back whenever the opportunity presents itself :) keep up the great work Ajay!

    Toby2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to go to in the weekends. Such a peaceful place and the scenery in the bedrooms is so awesome. You get to watch the mountains right before you in bed. The owner and the caretaker are just a message or a call away, quick to respond to any questions or issues you might face. Will recommed this place to everyone.

    Jyothis2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Its was overall a good experience. If you have a flair to be with nature and far from the hectic environment of urban metros you should visit once for sure.

  • What a wonderful stay I had at Nathuakhan, all thanks to wonderful host and one of the best location I ever stayed in Airbnb. Ajay is a super host and always eager to help out with the questions that one might have. Luckily hosts were at the property during my stay there so it helped me a lot in planning my trips around ..Coming to the food front , Deepak prepared yummy food and is very polite in demeanor. Place is easily accessible through public transport, I did this trip in typical backpacking style and never had any problem in finding transport to either reaching or exploring areas around. I would definately come back if time permits in future. Also there is no TV and I wish hosts do not put one ever at the property..one only needs a book and then right in front majestic Himalayas will do the rest. Thanks again to both of you, You are Superhost!

    Rahul2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • After looking at the tempting images of Ajayji's place at Nathuakhan for about a year, finally I had been there in early June this year. We're two. Let me admit, for about thirty five years I have been visiting places in the Himalayas, but nowhere did I find such a charming place to stay and feel the hills so intimately throughout the day. And if one adds the proximity of the host and his family while there, which I had the fortune to experience, no words would suffice to tell the story. I must say about Dipak too, the local young caretaker of the homestay, he is a real friend while one is there. Now why I'm singling out this place from my earlier experiences? Reasons are many. The serene ambiance and natural beauty of the place, the leisurely walks on different directions with abundance of trees of apricot, peach, plum, and walnuts everywhere - the crooning birds all around to give company, and the small dotting huts on the gradient hills to stare on - are all there no doubt - but so are they in more or less many other places. The thing is, Ajay has allowed the Himalaya to enter into his little nook which is well perched on the ridge with fully visible glass walls in his rooms allowing uninterrupted view of the majestic hills even when one remains in the rooms. But before I end, let me add that words are too insufficient to paint what is displayed in the entire canvas of Nathuakhan.

    Somenath2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • The view is really good from the rooms. Small place but well ventilated. The home was neat and clean. It had all the needed amenities. The local market is nearby. We were only there for one day but definitely worth it.

    Prabhkirat2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my 10 days here. It was great to escape the heat of the plains...though the thunderstorms were unexpected! Wonderful views of the Himalayas on clear days. I was happy to sit on the balcony, or in the garden, reading - with an occasional glance at the mountains. Also enjoyed walking around the local area - found everyone very friendly. Kitchen was well-equipped and I was able to buy most things I needed in the local shops. It was great to be able to cook for myself after 3 months travelling. Would definitely consider returning here in the future.

    Denise2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is magnificent. The house's location is near the market where all necessary items can be bought, and is itself situated facing the Himalayas. If you are longing for a peaceful and simple sojourn with Nature this place should suit.

  • Amazing place to spend holidays - top of the hill with super scenic view. The local manager Kailash was extremely helpful - he cooked great food and helped in every aspect. Only one scope of improvement is the approach road to the property - you have to climb a lot (although Kailash helps with luggage). Also there is a very small parking space so need to make arrangements if you travel with a big 12-seater tempo traveller. Baring this, net net it was a phenomenal experience - would love to stay at the property again and highly recommend this to people travelling to Mukteshwar

  • The place was everything that we expected. The caretaker, Kailash, was very helpful and is a great cook. :) You will find all the little amnetities that you would otherwise not expect at such a place. The location was lovely, and the place was cozy. It snowed a couple of days ago, and hence there was no electricity, otherwise, we had a great time!

  • This place is ideal for anyone looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Serene environment surrounded by trees, breathtaking views of snow clad mountains, ample space for walking/playing, adorable dog and helpful hosts, we couldn't have asked for more. The cottage is located at a 20-30 min uphill walk from the main road. It has enough space for two, spacious bathroom and kitchen. Daily need items can be purchased from a store on the main road. It was a nice experience to visit the health center/school/shop run by a local NGO nearby.

    Sandhya 2 is a homely family mountain cottage, part of the same property as Sandhya, a quaint mountain retreat. It has a cosy living space and kitchen diner downstairs, two bedrooms upstairs, two bathrooms and a study. The architecture has its foundations in traditional Kumaoni form with the proportions suiting a more modern living. The living space and the master bedroom face northwards with a full view of the Himalayan peaks. The front garden offers outside dining space.
    This our own family home that we are sharing with you all. Ideal for a family of 4 with children, staying at this cottage will offer an experience of home away from home. This is the second cottage on the property and its own garden, private space and a full panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks. The tariff is for an occupancy of 2 adults and 2 children and includes breakfast. The kitchen is fully functional and the guests can cook themselves too. Should you need cooking facility for your meals, our cook can help. Kindly let us know in advance. Kindly check with us if there are extra guests, children or adults as extra tariff will apply.
    We are located just below the Satkhol ashram, away from the road. The car/taxi is parked at the last gate of the Ashram from where there is a 10 minute downhill walk to Sandhya. We are at a fairly isolated spot that provides privacy and peace and quiet. The neighbourhood has 2 shops closeby for day to day groceries. Mukhteshwar and Almora can be done as day strips- both 45 minutes drive. Binsar is 2.5 hours away. We can help arrange taxis. Satkhol offers a nice walking path through the village and the community forest.
  • Sheba's little cottage is nothing short of a slice of heaven. It is completely isolated and just so peaceful you can almost hear your own heartbeat. A clear view of the himalayan range covered with snow, a well stocked kitchen, a fireplace and an adorable cats company....what more could you wish for. Head there for a perfect staycation and revel under a sky full of stars.

    Hemender2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Sheeba’s place. It’s so wonderfully located and has the most beautiful views of snow capped peaks. We escaped the delhi peak winters in end Dec and landed at this really warm, friendly house and had a great time soaking in the clear and brilliant sun. Sheeba made sure we had a comfortable stay despite being unavailable at the house at that time. Her support staff were friendly and helpful. The daughter of the main caretaker (Mansingh Bubby) is the one to ask for if you want tips on where to hike around. Expect great views, relaxed environment, basic but hygienic and flavourful local food and great conversations with locals if you spend time with them.

    Amit2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A cottage made from wood & stone & a lot of love right in the middle of a forest. Pictures don't do it justice. Whatever you can probably imagine from the pictures, I promise it's better. Nurtured around the cottage is a garden that will have you spending most of your time exploring it outside. Now couple that with a most extraordinary view of endless rolling hills, crowned at the end by the magnificent snow capped Himalayas. The cottage is built most tastefully and has all the amenities you can imagine right in the middle of all that forest. A cook comes early morning to cook your meals as you like it. Our caretaker Mansingh ji is also the gardener and is most willing to share his years of gardening experience with whoever's curious. If you're going round June July, you'll probably get to eat fresh plums and peaches right off the orchard. Maybe get some Jams made as well. Theres cat & kittens to give you company inside the home. All in all one of those places which in its very existence is a natural extension of- & actually adds to- the splendour of its surroundings. We didn't want to leave, ever! Thank you Sheeba for building such a beauty!

    Harshal2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • The place was beautiful with a great view. The house was very clean, kempt and cozy. A 10 minute trek from the Himalayan Ashram, the secluded location of the place along with the homely feel is what makes this house an entire experience. The place also had two kittens and a dog living in and around the property. So for animal lovers, this is paradise. The host was very helpful and prompt. She offered help not only for issues relating to the stay but also the travel. Overall our experience was great and I would ideally want to come back and stay for a longer stretch at Sheeba's lovely property.

    Shivani2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Gem of a place! Little did we know such a wonderful place was awaiting us! It’s a family home so everything around has been set up with love and affection and you experience it in every aspect. The house has a character! Location is outstanding - while being in proximity to villages gives you a sense of being secluded in the forest. Views - view of the valley and mountains is mesmerising. Offers views from all rooms and even the bathroom. Bonus - pet dog and cats add a warmth to the stay. Staff - excellent food! And very responsive caretaker. Would love to visit again for a long term stay. Thanks!

    Divya2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Sheeba's place is absolutely delightful. Nestled on top of the mountain with no other houses in vicinity but just the trees and flowers all around, it was surreal and peaceful. The support staff's service ethics plus homemade delicious food made it even better. Special mention for Narendra the cook and Mansingh the head caretaker who ensured we have everything we wanted. It was the perfect place to unwind and relax in the mountains. About the house itself, whatever is spoken would be less. So beautifully crafted with each small thing done tastefully. Sheeba's hospitality right from being proactive at the booking stage to checking with us each day about our requirements and well being was very thoughtful. Her works towards sustainability like rainwater harvesting, waste water recycling, tree plantation deserves an applause. I would prefer this place anyday over a posh hotel in the hills. Keep up the good work Sheeba. All the best!

  •  Me and family spent amazing last 4 nights at this beautiful property. The homestay is located at a perfect location which is neither too close to the traffic nor too far off from the places to see in Mukteshwar. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the caretaker Vijay took very good care of us. He is a terrific cook, and an extremely helpful person. The owner, Karuna is a super host and she helped us with all our queries promptly. This is highly recommended, and we have already told few of our friends about this. A must visit, and a pleasant surprise.

    Navneet2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Magical stay ! Me and my wife stayed at Karuna's place for 3 days in early December. The first thing that will mesmerize you is the view . The house itself is gorgeous. The interiors are nicely done and the fireplace adds a lot of warmth to the place. Their Caretaker Vijay deserves a special mention fir being an absolute gentleman, taking care of all our needs. This has been one of my best airbnb experiences so far !

    Rakshak2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice place to just sit relax and gaze at the mountains. Clean and well maintained. The chef has a good hand and the host is super supportive. Must visit !

    Daman2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • When we first stumbled upon this bungalow on AirBnB, it seemed almost too good to be true! But everything was as perfect as it seemed in the pictures. Escape was a perfect combination of modern yet rustic feels with breathtaking panoramic view of snowclad himalayan range. Kitchen was compact and contained everything one needs. We enjoyed the delicious meals prepared by the caretaker Vijay. It’s definitely been one of our favorite holidays so far, and would definitely recommend it to others!

    Deept2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent spot amidst nature. Perfect and nearest getaway from crowded and polluted Delhi. Do check-in with family and friends and you will add to lifetime memories. Quiet, calm, no traffic and sounds, except of birds. Home cooked food of your choice is an additional charm, gives a home away from home experience. Caretaker Vijay is very polite and helpful. Want to stay again in near future and enjoy winter/ spring season also at this place.

    Shiven2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • A hidden gem lis what I will call it. The house is done up very beautifully and they have a housekeeper who can help you cook meals for an extra charge. The view from the place is really nice and you can see the snow capped mountains if the weather is clear. They also give you local tips on places to go and hikes to cover etc. Overall we had a great time and will definitely recommend to all of they are looking for a simple and beautiful weekend getaway.

    Vasu2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my friends had a great time at Escap.le. The place is so peaceful so quiet and you can see the stars in the night🌃 you can go for a walk in the morning in nice weather and enjoy the farms lands and forest around the property. You can see the snow peaks from every room in the house. Breakfast is delish and freshly prepared every day. They use vegetables from the farms nearby and serve fresh meals everytime. I highly recommended this place and Vijay the host does a fantastic job at serving the guests. The owner is very polite and helpful. Highly recommend it for a family or friends trip looking for peace and quite.

    Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand, India

    Our small orchard sits on a ridge with panoramic views of snow-capped peaks. Our guests love the view, dawns, dusks & home-cooked food. Evenings by the wood burning bukhari, nights in comfortable beds with electric blankets complete the day. Our eco-friendly rooms with fragrant deodhar furniture, writing desks, and large windows have spurred many a creative guest's imagination. After traveling the world, we have made Satkhol our home. We look forward to sharing our quiet space with you.
    This is the home of two published authors who live at The Quiet Place full time. This also doubles up as the venue for all the events hosted by the Himalayan Writing Retreat.
    This is rural area with lots of quiet and nature. Mukteshwar is a 45 minute drive, and there are 1-2 shops run by NGOs in the vicinity. There is no market close by and options for eating out are minimal and basic so we offer all meals at the Quiet Place for an additional cost.
  • Living at The Quiet Place was a wholesome experience. While the temperature at 7000 odd feet tends to be cold, the hospitality is amazingly warm. They have spectacular views of the mountains that you can never get enough of. The accommodation is cosy and you're very well looked after. The freshly cooked meals and engaging conversations keep you full of food and food for thought. The place gives you space to think and lots of space for long walks in the hills. A perfect place for quality time with family, friends, or time with yourself.

    Vikram2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a weekend getaway from the bustling city life, The Quiet Place is the way to go. The spectacular views at the break of dawn and numerous hiking trails with varying levels of difficulty, make this place a unique experience for everyone. Their hospitality and expertise in the local district will make your trip memorable. Chetan and Vandita ensure that you have a comfortable time at their place. I highly recommend this place if you venture out seeking a quiet and lovely time.

    Malavika2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a good time at Chetan's property! Not only is it absolutely stunning with a full view of the Himalayan Range, but also we were taken care of so well by all the staff working on the property. All our meals were absolutely delicious and nourishing, and rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable. We would absolutely recommend staying here for anybody who needs an escape to the hills!

    Kavya2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • It was an amazing experience to stay at Chetan's place as Airbnb is about meeting people sharing experiences and this stay was just that. The place is a lot better than what we see in the pictures, staying at the well equipped and clean cottages was an experience in itself, food was good and the place has great views and sky is full of stars in the night. Highly recommended!

    Varun2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chetan's place is an absolutely brilliant place for a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle. The view of the Himalayas,the serene environment and the wonderful hospitality will overwhelm you. The place is also extremely blessed to have a large convenience store nearby (quite rare in these parts). The overall hospitality coupled with the magnificent view and absolutely comfortable stay, makes this place one of the best air bnbs I have stayed in.

    Soak up the beautiful Kumaoni ambience in this Villa in a small sleepy beautiful town
    The house was built in 1918 and has been renovated recently to preserve it's charm which is the correct mixture of Kumaoni and British architecture. The renovation has included modern amenities to make the stay more comfortable.
    The house is located in the outskirts of the crowded parts of the city with easy access to nearby markets and grocery stores and pharmacy stores. The famous Kasar Devi temple is a 45 mins hike, which most of our guests enjoy. The house has a small terrace for evenings under the night sky and a view to enjoy with your morning cup of coffee.
  • The stay at Rustic villa was amazing and memorable. Pre and after booking experience was excellent. Our host was great,very helpful and passionate. Unique mouth watering food. The house was uniquely designed,well equipped and comfortable. The view from the place was refreshing and mesmerising.we highly recommend this place for a memorable experience.

  • Amazing hospitality with such quick responses. Delicious home cooked food . Amazing location of Villa We felt like home

    Rajat2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We travelled to almora for 2 nights and three days, drive was amazing and more amazing was our destination at rustic villa. The place was so heritage.. the space offered at the price mentioned was worth it.. spacious big bedrooms and bathrooms.. lovely living area and dinning space. Tv was missing ! But if sole travelling it was not required. Quick responses when contacted and good hospitality.. meenakshi and Ravi were always available and also helped planning for the day.. ! Bonfire arrangements with much privacy was feather in the hat ! We opted for all homemade meals and snacks.. but it may not be cost effective.. little expensive as nothing was for free at all. Great ambience and hosts and the lovely house between the valleys.. ! Thank you for an amazing first experience airbnb !

    Komal2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is conveniently located-grocery shops are close by, and walking distance to the two main markets where all amenities are available yet not in the centre of town congestion. The cottage itself is beautifully and thoughtfully designed, retaining the old architecture, old design with new furnishing. It was really a delight to wake up every morning to the sunlight flooded house with a good view of the entire valley. Good place to relax as well as work. The food is delicious, home cooked and doesn’t tire you like ‘outside’ food does. Meenakshi auntie is really thoughtful in that sense and took care of me like someone in the family does. One can enjoy evenings of interesting conversation with her and Col. Pande both of whom have many interesting anecdotes from their many years of living in various places. The story of the house in itself makes up for a great evening. I stayed here for a month and greatly enjoyed this stay.

    Namrata2019-12-14T00:00:00Z

    Feel the Himalayas in ‘Blue Magpie’, a village homestay where the guests/travelers can experience the quiet mountain life with a view of snow clad peaks and relax amidst the lush greenery. The name of the homestay has been inspired by the red-billed Himalayan Blue Magpie, a majestically beautiful bird that visits the region. It's a paradise for bird watchers with the rich variety of birds that grace the place with their beauty. Nature walk and village walk can also be arranged for the guests.
    The pine-wooded homestay is more like a studio suite with one big room (25x30 ft), a changing room, an attached bathroom with western toilet, kitchen and a verandah that gives a spectacular view of Trishul, Nandadevi and the thick forested Himalayan valley. The room has a double bed, however, additional two persons can be accommodated in the room. As an alternative to the home-made traditional Kumayoni food served by the host family, the guests can also prepare own meal in the furnished kitchen.

    A luxury cottage well furnished and fully equipped, nestled in an Oak forest facing a valley in the Kumaon region of the Himalayas. It's an open layout with a private bedroom, an open layout bedroom, a painting studio and terraced gardens. All rooms are bright as the cottage faces east!
    Iris cottage is fully equipped with all essential household gadgets as well as cooking gas. The cottage is on three levels all facing sunny East. The living room and kitchen is on the top level leading up to the painting studio which has a double bed, the open bedroom with twin beds on the second level and the private bedroom with a double bed on the lowest level. We have an onsite caretaker who will clean the house daily and help with minor chores and also fire up the fireplace. There are two bathrooms, one is attached to the private bedroom and the other is attached to the main living area. There is an open kitchen in the living area as well as a separate kitchen. All rooms have a small garden in front facing the valley.
    Iris cottage is located below road level facing a valley and an Oak forest. A winding path in between Oak trees leads down to the cottage. Parking is at road level and during tourist season you may have to park a little ahead or before our cottage. The whole area is safe! Near the cottage is the only hospital in Mukteshwar. While there are many resorts nearby, Iris Cottage has its own seclusion and privacy and yet is close to public amenities Some of the well known resorts nearby are Mystic Mukteshwar and Mountain Trail. There is a small grocery shop for essentials a 5 minute walk away and the main market called Bhatelia is a 5 minute car drive away. The town of Mukteshwar is 5kms from the cottage. There are many Himalayan birds you can observe from the cottage itself so do carry binocs if you are a bird lover!
  • Rajat’s cottage is a real work of beauty and careful, thoughtful designing. It’s located conveniently, not too close, not too far from the road with a couple of nice cafes and shops selling mountain products close by. The caretaker and his family are extremely nice people and made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The cottage also is not only beautifully designed but also thoughtfully and adequately equipped. We spent a wonderful Christmas here, cooking, relaxing in the winter sun and would love to return at some point.

    Namrata2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Loved my stay, loved the hospitality, even the extra touchings with paintings and pictures on the walls. And the view from the balcony is to die for. Definitely worth every penny spent.

    Harmeet2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Iris cottage would be a great choice , what you see is what you get..maybe better. Rajat's home is tastefully done , spacious & is equipped with most amenities you could ask for. You wouldn't miss much...recommend having a lazy breakfast of stuffed paranthas & omelette's cooked by the caretaker ( Pandit Ji )....that too in the sun kissed balcony with fabulous views. It was so quiet...you could hear a pin drop in the woods :) loved it.

    Krishna2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Rajat and his care taker Pandit Ji were extremely warm and thoughtful at their welcome. The place has a serene quiet surrounding and a cozy quotient. The kitchen and equipments are well placed to cater home cooked food. The place is well located and near to every possible tourist spot. The place has a great collection of books and movies. Iris cottage makes you find the peace which isn't available in city life. No addition needed to this place.

    Manu2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great experience at the place, helpful and accommodating caretaker and it's a perfect getaway for a few days

    Arjit2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • If someone is planning a trip to Mukteshwar, I would highly recommend you to stay at Irish Cottage. Be it with friends or family, this 'home away from home' won't disappoint you. The pictures here completely do justice to this beautiful instagrammable cottage. Perfect location to make your holiday perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I would like to thank Rajat for being an amazing host and being a perfect guide, solving all our queries before we landed up there.

  • Iris cottage is a cozy little cottage in Mukhteshwar, the location of the cottage is so perfect that you'll not have to step out for anything. There were beautiful views from every part of the cottage. Rajat has done up the place so tastefully, the kitchen is fully equipped, its almost as if you can live there without having to think you need anything more. I travelled there with my sisters for a relaxed break and that's exactly what we got. spent the days playing games & watching movies, that are there in the cottage and SO many DVDs you can choose from. There's a cute little café right next door that has the best Kumaoni food and since it was raining mostly, they were gracious enough to deliver whenever we requested. I can keep writing about the place but words really don't do justice to this beautiful cottage, one has to experience it. Thank you Rajat.

  • Very responsive host and equally friendly care-takers. This place has a charm of escaping with your family to a quite place and re-connect. Well designed house with one private room and 2 open rooms. The caretaker is very helpful. I had a rejuvenating vacation in which i extended a day as 2 days is very less for consuming all the goodness about this place. I would love to come back and stay for a longer time.

    Tucked away in a quaint corner of The Woodhouse Farm, Meraki is a unique cottage with 02 spacious rooms, a mini kitchenette and a private dining area. The cottage is covered in a dark brown texture and blends in perfectly with its surroundings. Both rooms have an all-glass front made of large ceiling-to-floor windows so that you never miss a glimpse of the marvelous Himalayas.   At Meraki, one becomes a part of nature itself.
    At just about 45kms from Nainital and 12 kms from Mukteshwar, far away from the maddening crowd of a popular hill station and tucked away somewhere in a quaint little village called Satoli is a gorgeous Farmstay,  with 03 exclusive wooden cottages, aptly called “The WoodHouse Farm”.    As you walk towards the house through a blissful setting consisting of peach, plum and apricot orchards, it almost feels as if you are leaving behind what is real and stepping into a Claude Monet painting: Colourful Scenery, clear blue skies, cotton clouds and virgin mountains for as far as the eye can see. Walk a little further and a striking wooden cottage rises against a backdrop of majestic snow-covered peaks of the Himalayas while another one is hidden amidst trees, colourful flora and vegetable plantations.   As you look around and you will spot Shunya (our Yoga Deck) and Meraki (our 2 bedroom unit) tucked away in a quaint corner facing the majestic peaks of the himalayas
  • Beautiful place to stay along with mind boggling hospitality.

  • Very nice place off the beaten track. Great views of Himalayas, weather permitting. Apartment is very well furnished and Ajay ji and local caretaker are both very helpful and responsive to any issues that may arise.

    Praveen2019-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Ten on ten. The place was exactly as shown in the photographs. Felt as if was staying in a dream home in the hills. While it was raining i was completely surrounded by clouds standing in the balcony. The entire surroundings were just mesmerising. The hosts were very helpful and guided me well. The market is nearby, cook is extremely well behaved and cooks very well specially chicken. The place was very clean specially the bathroom. What else would you want. Highly recommended to others. I would surely be vacationing here again.

  • I wanted to explore Ramgarh, Mukteshwar region on a quick solo trip and stayed at Kalpataru1 for a single night. The location is idyllic and the home has everything to allow you to relax and enjoy the nature. Trees were laden with seasonal fruits like peach, Apple and i could pick a few during my morning and evening walks. It is easily accessible by local transport like buses, jeeps. It is also located a few hundered meters away from the the market where you can find daily necessities. I was totally satisfied with this choice and might soon come back with family to stay more.

    Vivek2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Ajay. The place is beautiful. Great view. Although, its a small town, you have eveything you need here. The small touches and amenities help a lot. Things like tea and sugar and spices. Surely recommed this place for a weekend hideout from the cities. Deepak(caretaker) was very helpful. Special thanks to him.

    Arun2018-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ajay's place is hands down one of the best Airbnb's you can find in Uttarakhand. Its a cozy room in the middle of the hills equipped with everything you might need not just for a short, but even if you're looking to stay for long. Waking up to the mesmerizing view of the hills and Himalayan skyline is an experience that remains unparalleled. The cleanliness is top notch, and the way everything is organized instantly makes you feel comfortable, and at home. Also, the place is in close vicinity of a lot of popular tourist attractions like Mukteshwar, Nainital, Bhimtal, etc. The local help (Deepak) is really hospitable and will help make your stay even more comfortable.

    Shail2018-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Ajay’s place was everything I had imagined and more. If you’re looking for a relaxing, secluded escape from the unforgiving time schedule that dictates most of our lives then I couldn’t suggest this home more favourably. Days can be whatever you make them - from long walks, visits to the market and extensive reading to simply watching the Himalayan range from the rooftop. Provided with everything you could need, the home itself is simple and functional. The market - a stones throw away - gives vast access to an abundance of raw ingredients. Ajay and his wife were enormously proactive, assisting in organising transportation and meals. Depaak is incredibly kind, providing help if required - even received a cooking lesson! Would certainly love to return in the future!

  • Wonderful place to stay at. The best homestay experience by far.. Mr ajay is a warm host. The place is absolutely neat and affordable . The view from the room is near perfect. Strongly recommended for anyone who wishes to experience tranquility in the hilla.
