Think of us as your co-working service apartment. Each of our six rooms has a workdesk, and opens into a private sitout. Our crackling-fast wi-fi reaches most corners of the estate. There are lots of areas where you can sit and work, both inside and out. Since it never gets hot, outside is often preferred. We are a small orchard on a ridge with overwhelming views at dawn, dusk, and snow-capped peaks (on a clear day). Our guests love the view, food and climate. Many families have carried happy memories from here. Here, get away from urban madness to a simpler life. We do not offer television or intercoms, but our service standards are very high (see reviews). Our full-service kitchen serves up tasty, healthy buffet meals three times a day. We source much of our raw material locally, and grow some of it ourselves. We also compost and recycle as much as we can. We welcome like-minded guests to stay with us. We want all guests to be safe and relaxed. So we request all our guests to come with RTPCR test reports - this ensures the safety of everyone who stays with us. Our staff is fully trained on Covid safety Protocols as well.

Quickly about the place: 6-room homestay with one common lounge/ dining area and a green outcrop with some sitting. Of the 6 rooms, 4 are in 2 mud cottages while 2 are in the owners' house. The latter have a small living area between them, so if you take both the rooms you get that space additionally to yourself. Rooms: the mud cottages give you some space from the main area, but are relatively smaller rooms, particularly the ones on the ground floor. The house rooms are larger, and I would recommend the one facing the garden strip the most. The rooms are pleasant and comfortable, but have some minor seepage issues that are inevitable in the rains in the mountains. Property: small, but nicely done. It was fairly empty when we were there so we had enough space to ourselves, but I can imagine it would become a little cramped when full. Food: very good, but then isn't all food in the mountains so? :) There was decent variety in cuisine and the hosts were very receptive to suggestions. Oh, and they got us excellent samosas from a neighbourhood shop one day - remember to ask for those. Which brings us to the hosts. We travel extensively, and predominantly stay in homestays and hence have interacted with a lot of hosts, but none as engaging as Chetan and Vandita. They have interesting backgrounds and life experiences, are very good conversationalists, extremely helpful (they went out of their way to arrange a vaccine for us as an example), available but never intrusive. If we head back to Quiet Place, it will be for them above all. Also, we travelled with our kids, and they had a fun time with C&V's kids and dogs. Service: helpful, amiable local staff. VFM: Extremely. A couple of niggles: there was a fair amount of construction activity in the area when we went, and so was not really as quiet as one would hope for, and the air was also not very clean. Overall: recommended for one trip at least.

The Quiet Place is a perfect spot to escape the city and work from the mountains - we were there for 2 weeks and it soon felt like a home away from home! Chetan and Vandita were wonderful hosts and one of the highlights of our stay was spending time with their family in the evenings over dinner (& often rummy!). Excellent home-style food (and shout out to Anhad's delicious baked goods that we couldn't stop eating). The staff were also super attentive and took care of everything we needed. The WiFi, one of our top priorities for working, was excellent - there was no problem having multiple video calls. In the couple of instances when power went out and WiFi was down (inevitable in the mountains during the rains!) Chetan made sure it was fixed asap for us and I wouldn't hesitate to come back there & work. When not working we enjoyed going for walks (there are lots of very accessible & beautiful routes), reading, playing basketball, and enjoying the beautiful surroundings & great weather. We were also lucky enough to catch the spectacular view of the mountain ranges on several days. Thank you Chetan, Vandita, Anhad and Rahat for a wonderful stay - looking forward to returning someday soon!

Absolutely recommend staying here if you are looking for a break/change from your hectic day-to-day. The mudhouses are comfortable & cozy, the food is like comfort food (you won't miss Ghar ka khana) and you can't beat the sunset view from the Tapu. The place is also great for working professionals or small teams looking for an offsite WFH option/conduct workshops/have some team-building fun. During my stay, I was working during the weekdays with office calls running from morning till late at night. Thanks to the high-speed internet connection, every video call, and online collaborative task ran smoothly without a hitch. Really thankful to the hosts Chetan & Vandita for their quick response and proactiveness in enabling my productivity. Looking forward to coming back soon!

I cannot wait to return. Chetan, Vandita and family + staff are amazing hosts. Wifi is amazing. Great places to read. Excellent treks. It's a great break from congested, claustrophobic city life. One of my best friends and I stayed for nearly a week. We each got an individual cottage. I was pleasantly surprised, mainly because I'd done zero research prior to showing up. Aditi (my friend) and I each had our own earthen cottage. The finish is impeccable. No issues with plumbing, electricity or wifi. Additionally, the food is bomb and healthy. Meals are always served on time. There is plenty of space for yoga and solo reading + writing. The dogs on the property are extremely friendly as well. I am excited to return and to participate in a workshop of some sorts.

For our holiday this time, we were looking for a cosy place on the mountains that has the warmth and not superficiality of a resort. The Quiet Place is home to a hundreds types of birds and is surrounded by nature trails. The breakfast and lunch is served at lookout lawns that overlook mountains that have the floating clouds in the morning and the snow-capped peaks visible during the sunset. The hosts, Chetan and Vandita are the warmest people I have ever met. The team is super-efficient, who would fix up things called for at 11pm within a few minutes! The food is delicious and as the hosts take into account guests' preferences, meticulously. The rooms are comfortable for families with the play areas and patio spaces. You can often meet a fellow traveller who is a thinker/writer/naturalist/entrepreneur to engage in meaningful conversations over meals. My kids rating it 10/10 says it all!
