A beautiful and quiet place with 3 lovely dogs. Property manager sorted our food situation and is extremely forthcoming.

A very beautiful and relaxing place in hill station like Ooty. I liked the cottage better than any other places we visited for sightseeing. I would like to go for long vacation and spend relaxing time in the same cottage as it feels so close to nature. Robert and Suresh both are…

The place is really nice and cozy. The caretaker Suresh is really helpful. But there is no power back-up and heating system. Only one bedroom has a fireplace. But overall it was a good stay and I would recommend this place to others.

Cons - Though the host states 8 adults can be accommodated only 6 beds are provided. More than 6 adults will require additional Beds at extra cost. - Lighting can be a bit more bright. Pros - Place is at a good location next to a lake. - Food is good.

This is a highly charged place with too expensive food. Air bnb puts hidden charges too. The view of the place is good but never worth the price.

A nice colonial style cottage. Quiet and peaceful. Close to the city. Tasty Home cooked food. The caretaker was very helpful. Would definitely visit again.
