Located in the lap of hills and surrounded by fruit orchards, our two cottages are the ideal place to relax. This is a luxury homestay with a difference. There is a 18-hole mini-golf course too.

Each cottage consists of multiple rooms and is given out as a whole. The meals are prepared using high-quality ingredients, mostly organic and sourced locally. The delicious meals are served in a designated outdoor dining area. The area is surrounded by fruit orchards and is close to a dense forest.

It’s was an awesome stay at the cottage. Hospitality of Dr Maini is worth praise. Pawan and Vikki took good care of us. Vikki even obliged us with his beautiful songs. Met Akash ji who spread cheerfulness in one and all. All three generations our mother, us and our kids were well taken care of. I have never seen my mother so happy in my life. Cleanliness, beauty of nature, excellent food and so many more gestures are worth praise. We met Dr Maini as our host and feel he is a part of extended family now. Such lovely memories made here are worth treasure for our lives. Thanks from the bottom of my heart

We visited the cottage , on 29 th dec 21, there are so many Colors to this beautiful place that 200 words are less ! Firstly the cottage is beautifully built with a fireplace , clean with all the required amenities, since the pandemic was still going on , we had least interaction with any of the management staff which was good .Secondly , if u truly want to connect with nature and urself , the forest trail , the beautiful sunsets n sunrises seen over the breathtaking mountain peaks was a once in a life time sight …. Thirdly the cuisine n dining was unique and awesome , nothing was on a repeat , absolutely delicious, a platter of variety was displayed even at -5 degrees! The home made apricot jelly should never be missed ! The cottage has a mini golf ⛳️, if Ud like to try any of your golf skills ! Lastly Dr Maini will make sure .. that whatever ur needs are …that will be provided so that ur holiday is just perfect ! We loved the place the company the serenity .. can’t wait to be back during summers …

There are many possible stays in a visit - some offer a great menu, some great views while some grand comforts. Maini's Hill Cottage ideally mixes all of them. We planned a short stay here in the month of November to rush away from the dean & bustles of Kanpur during Dewali. After 11 hour-long drive, we reached the place in the afternoon of 4th November. The first thing that happened was a call from Dr. Maini, 'Have you reached Haldwani?' The answer generated an explanation that since we missed the lunch during the travel, a perfect afternoon meal is being prepared for us! Such a lovely concern. When we reached the cottage, Dr. Maini was immediately in action arranging our stay and giving a brief introduction to organic farming. That various plants can live together in wonderful harmony was a great lesson for us - human beings - why can't we follow the suit! As the time progressed towards an evening bonfire we came to know about each other's philosophy, life, and culture, understanding there's a possibility of a great friendship. The next day we left for a visit to an unknown stream known to Dr. Maini. The genteel stream with the lovely tender waves jumping over the rocks created the milieu. We started exploring the stones of a varied range of shape, size, and color and realized at that moment that we have a perfect match of wavelength. The last day was of perfect leisure meeting some more friends of the hills whom Dr. Maini invited to join with us. It was a great evening together. The time passed by. We are back in the flatlands of Kanpur. Yet, often we dream of the snowy peaks and the warm friendship of Dr. Maini. Wish we could meet each other every day on the turn of the road and exchange the treasures of life!

We visited Natadol, Maini's Cottages after due diligence with the owner, found it same as photos and descriptions on his website. Beautiful, serene, calm, laidback hamlet of Natadol and Dr. Maini's cottages reminded us of old world RAJ era charm with ultra-modern amenities we are so accustomed to. There are 2 cottages on the property, both identical with great views of the Himalayas, both cottages have one master bedroom and two 1st floor rooms, total 3 double rooms, a functional kitchen and sitting area with heating(hearth). Car parking is available, safe and inside the compound. We were pleasantly surprised to find no TV and felt great being away from the hub-bub of city life. Dr. Maini himself has metamorphosed into an avid nature/ wildlife aficionado. He has vast knowledge of the local flora and fauna which we experienced first hand on the many nature walks/ Treks we took along with him. The property itself is vast and dotted with apple, Pear, Apricot orchards along with various herbs. The owner is kind enough to let us/ children pluck fruits directly and eat to hearts content. Apart from the various juicy fruits, i must congratulate Dr. Maini on his personal culinary skills which i experienced first hand, delicious, lip-smacking food served piping hot at the Gazebo near the open kitchen. Best part is you can order what you like, when you like, no holdups of any sort. The Mini-golf couse is possibly the only one in Uttrakhad private property, we were lucky enough to have a few sunny days during the rainy season in August to have a go at the 18 HOLE course. Wow, what an experience. Even without TV and dotty cellular network, we, adults and the kids had no problem in keeping ourselves busy with the limitless collection of books, comics, indoor games (phew!) what an exhaustive collection and of Couse just sitting out on the beautiful deck outside the cottage and looking at stars or just...looking far away at the horizon. Al in all, concluding, Maini's Hill Cottages are a great Luxury homestay for someone in love with the outdoors and wishes to be left completely alone for a few days.
