About Location

At 5500 ft, 320 Kms. from Delhi, 28 from Kathgodam railway station, right on the broad well maintained national highway is this beautiful cottage.

Unspoiled , in a time warp is this tiny hamlet called Gethia. Centrally located from all places like Nainital (4 Kms via motorable short cut, 18 via-highway), Bhimtal (28), Sattal (19), Ranikhet (59), Almora (40) Ramgarh (39), Mukteshwar (54) ....You see soothing greenery, roadsides erupting with wild yellow flower , very little traffic and maybe hordes of butterflies. The area has maintained its wild pristine laid back atmosphere even though it houses a number of Hi- end resorts and hotels. It is a place to come , relax and unwind ,where the simplicity of nature and life, recharges and rejuvenates.

A very enjoyable experience at this property.A nice homely place to relax with all amenities and away from the hustle and bustle.Do visit with family to have a enjoyable stay. Easily located on road to Nanital with 20 min drive from the Property.A very enjoyable stay at this property.Rahul - Delhi

If one needs to find warmth, luxury, comfort, peace and some awfully breathtaking sights of nature, then is the place to be. From the ceremonious warm welcome with the owner, Mr. Bajaj to the first look of our room, and to die for beautiful sights, it seemed everything was too good to be true. We stayed with our 4 year old kid and after the madness of nainital, this sojourn came as the ideal place for our family of 4 including my mother who just doesn't like mountains but even she vouched for the virgin beauty spread around. The views from the room and decor will make you fall in love with the place instantly. The food was homely and all amenities were provided for with great hospitality so much so that we even went on to celebrate our kid's birthday at such an idyllic place. Would recommend to one and all and definitely, it deserves a second visit.Shivani - Delhi
