Mrs.Anita, the owner of the property was in touch with us, to guide us about the route, since this property is slightly away from mainstream Mukteshwar. Our entire tiredness was taken over by awe and joy, the moment we reached the property. The view is...

My trip to Uttarakhand started with Binsar, then Munsiyari, Chakori, Ranikhet and ended at Mukteshwar. A family friend suggested that I stay at Colonels Cottage and I am so glad I agreed with their advice. It was such a beautiful experience. I stayed there for 3 nights. After spending 10 days all over the Kumaon region, this place felt like...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
While affording homely comforts like an ante-room attached to the main living space, carpeted flooring, electric blanket, hot-air blower, a well-appointed bathroom, a long balcony giving you an excellent view of the valley, ‘TheColonel’s Cottage’ has a lot of open space for you to bask in the bright sun, and in turn enjoy sitting around a bonfire in the late evening.A place that must be on the top of the list of the tourists to Mukteshwar is the location where the great Bard Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore spent a considerable time writing Geetanjali that bagged the Nobel Prize for literature. The place is just 12 km from The Colonel's Cottage, and it will be our pleasure and pride to take you down to visit the 'Writers' Bungalow', as it is called. ... more   less
