Travellers' Choice
The Brigadiers Cottage - Your Boutique Homestay - is located at a five minutes' walk from the famous Kempty falls and the Kempty bazaar , The cottage is completely surrounded in a thick wooded area ,and the gurgling sound of the brook flowing below . The brigadier's cottage - Your Boutique Homestay - is owned by a family whose history is steeped in the Army and so the cottage was designed to be a manor of our father , a retired Brigadier with a huge lounge, complete with a fireplace and huge scenic picture widows where one can spend time curled up with a good book from our well stocked library , sipping great English tea, sit around the fire place with family and friends, mull over the chess board or other indoor games or simply gaze at nature. Each of the rooms and suites overlook the valley and you get up in the morning to the chirping of the birds and gurgling sound of the brook flowing nearby, those with religious inclinations, can take to meditation and yoga in the temple located within the estate, listening to soft Indian ragas playing in the background as you take in your dose of unpolluted, clean, fresh and crisp mountain air.The terrace offers a 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayan ranges and the forests, the windows allowing for the sunlight to filter in while you cosy up for the day besides your own personal sigri . The barbecue and bon fire areas allow for one to sit by the fire under the starry sky to grill the food of your choice while you spend your time mulling over your drink with family and friends .

I am reposting my review of the Brigadiers Cottage, Mussoorie which was posted couple of weeks back but somehow got lost when i tried to make a small correction. Anyway the fact that i am making this effort of rewriting this review ALL OVER AGAIN is a testimony to how much we loved our experience. Looking for a pet friendly homestay, far away from crowded main Mussoorie town we booked BC after checking out the reviews on TA. With absolutely serene surroundings and far from the din, we found an absolutely beautiful homestay and came back with memories of a lifetime. Location: 5/5 Just about 20 mins from The Mall, off Kempty Falls. Accommodation: 5/5 Well appointed' large luxury bedrooms with a HUGE balcony, best i have seen in a homestay. Nice terrace with a great view. Food: 5/5The best ever in the hills. Each day was a new gastronomic adventure. Nepali Thali, Barbeque, North Indian, Continental - naming just a few meals we had!! Staff: 5/5 Led by the omnipresent Shakti who is always at you beck and call, extremely courteous & ready to make your experience spectacular Things to Do - We were there to unwind but discovered Sanji Village, Lori's Cafe, picnic on banks of Yamuna which was all a bonus The owner couple Aseem & Neetu are great hosts and amazing company. They treated us like their personal guests. Cant wait to head back!!!

Thank you Aseem, Neetu for your hospitality and letting us stay 😀 Have recently returned from a Christmas holidays break . Delighted to be hosted by a caring and superb host Aseem n Neetu. We loved our stay with tastefully done bedrooms, sitting room..design ni architecture very rustic but elegant, had a amazing time on terrace bonfire and having hot lunch around a sigri... evening fireplace chit chat, and above all its all serenity and calm . The Brooks down below flowing carried the sound to our ears.. pleasent and blissful.. Amazing staff taking care of all your needs..always carrying a smile with them.. Morning breakfasts are something one just can't afford to miss..wake up early soak up sun while having favourite on the terrace. Its peaceful ....if u want to totally unwind , relax and maybe read a book with soaking in the sun This is it Brigadiers Cottage.Simply beautiful..

The Brigadiers cottage is one of the best homestays we have stayed at. Beautiful property with comfortable rooms and lovely views. The best part is the warm hospitality by Neetu and Aseem who make you feel at home. They went above and beyond to take care of my husband's dietary restrictions and ensured all guests interact with each other and have a pleasant time in Mussorie. Definitely going back :)

Dear Priya, It was wonderful having Akshat and You over. We are glad we were able to accommodate Akshats requirement of a Jain and Vegan diet . Though challenging it was also a learning for us and Akshat being so non fussy really helped. Well we do look forward to your return.. BB is doing fine too... Personal Regards, Neetu and Aseem Varma

We were looking for a short break towards the end of December, which was also to be our Pet’s first vacation. Needless to say, the search for a pet friendly place took a long time, but took us eventually to Brigadier’s Cottage and boy, are we glad it did! Neetu and Aseem made us feel immediately at home and were the most gracious hosts ever. If I may say, their hospitality is the USP of this place. As is the beautiful view and tastefully done up rooms. It was a wonderful 3 day stay at Brigadier’s Cottage and we will be back for more, for sure. Coming back was like coming away from a relative’s home, in the holidays. We went their as guests but came back as family!
