Amidst the lush greens of Matheran, sheltered from the chaos of the city, Radha Cottage is your go-to place to unwind after a hectic week, or just spend quality time with your loved ones. Laden with archaic grace, the 125-year-old heritage property of Radha Cottage guarantees a royal yet welcoming experience. The prime bungalow was originally the dwelling of Sir Pherozeshah Mehta. The 3rd president of Congress, fondly known as the Lion of Bombay, whose statue stands proud in front of the BMC HQs. The vintage aesthetic of the bungalow has been preserved with only a few modifications done to cater to the requirements of this day and age. The noteworthy wooden fittings illuminate the vibe of aristocratic nobility. Furthermore, the one-acre-wide spacious property, brimming with greenery, guarantees a grandiose stay. Since the property is about a kilometre from the unrest of the market, guests can relish the feeling of tranquillity and calm. The sought after 7-point-circle, including Sunrise Point and One Tree Hill Point, starts not more than 5 minutes away, and guests can be enthralled with the charm of Matheran. The little chowk, with its romantic aura, is an excellent place for couples to enjoy a dreamy walk. On returning back to Radha Cottage, guests can savour the rich Maharashtrian cuisine, the pièce de résistance of which, is Puran Poli. One can enjoy the ambience of antiquity while sipping on a relaxing cup of tea. The exquisite vintage aura combined with the pristine element of nature is sure to provide an enchanting experience.

We vacationed at Matheran from 27-30December'2020 and stayed at the Radha cottage in their duplex unit. Once in Matheran we hired a porter to get us there. He dashed on ahead with our luggage while we trailed behind losing track of him as we couldn't keep up with his pace. We ended up reaching the family run cottage safely with no incident and all our luggage intact. The room was to our liking and exactly what we wanted. The location was perfect - away from the crowds and the market place whilst having many walking trails and points nearby which we could explore at our leisure. The property is enclosed by a wall and there is a small play area for children. The walled in property also has enough space for children to play and explore which kept my younger son happily engaged. They have wifi facilities and so my older son could keep up with his classes. The restaurant serves homely vegetarian as well as non vegetarian meals which we used to look forward to. Overall it was a perfect wonderful vacation which rejuvenated us. Overall we had a great experience at the Radha cottage.

Hotel's Favourite
The captivating scenery of the place that this cottage surrounds amidst the ever expanding flora of the region allows one to truly experience Matheran at its best. If you are visiting Matheran for the first time, this is a place you should definitely consider staying at. The architectural structure inspired from the British colonial periods and its fashionably designed interiors provides a soothing and calm headspace for those who have come for a quick getaway away from the daily chaos of life. Their benevolent staff will always provide a hand even if it comes to the smallest of tasks. The food prepared in this place is also worth mentioning. Based on traditional Maharashtrian food, the warmth with which it is prepared, dishes made to suit your palette which will not make you miss home cooked food. Most of the tourist points are located close within the vicinity making your stay more enjoyable, especially for those who have a zeal for adventure such as hiking and trail /walking running. In all, Radha Cottage will provide you the perfect space to cherish your memories in Matheran.

We stayed in a duplex cottage that had 2 rooms and a living room with a sofa cum bed. Its a great option for friends and family wanting to stay together. The resort is clean and well maintained with lots of trees. The food is homely and delicious with a very good variety. They have a few swings and a small play area for children but apart from that no other live programs in the evening. However we didn't feel the lack of it as we would play indoor games in our room. The hotel is the last hotel in Matheran and is quite a long way from the station so hiring a horse may be a good idea. Due to its location it is close to a couple of view points which must definitely be explored on foot. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone for whom the distance is not an issue.

Simplicity is the beauty! If you believe this, Radha cottage is your destination. I can’t think of a single flaw that I would’ve noticed during my stay.. The food, cleanliness, location, courteous staff.. it’s just perfect! Food will make you feel like you are home... and the personal attention that the host provides, it is Unique! A special note to Radha - I missed puranpoli last time despite your insistence to try but I am gonna come back and have lot of it next time ❤️🤗
