“Fantastic Stay at Secret Cottage.”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I booked the cottage in August 2016. Me and my family enjoyed the stay at the cottage. Good location easy to access. The Host and the service staff were very help full. The food served at the cottage was very good. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely like to visit once again. The host arranged a cab for the local sight seeing and was always eager to help during our stay in the Valley.

Very Good.

“extremely pleasant stay”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage is about 8 kms from Kullu town in Himachal situated in a fruit orchard. Its managed by a lady Mrs Kamla Suri whose own cottage is also on the same premises.
The location is on the main road going towards Manali. river Beas flows down just across the road . all the rooms including Living room, bedrooms, dining room are well appointed. Kitchen is well equipped with all the modern amenities. Bathrooms are big sized neat and clean. The place is really good for relaxing away from hustle and bustle of town. luckily all the trees were loaded with fruits like plumbs. peaches, appricots, pomengranates etc. which was a treat to the eyes. Activities like rafting, canoeing etc are nearby. there are some very good eating joints nearby. Overall it was a memorable experience and we definitely plan to visit again.

“Among the best homestays in Himachal!”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

As soon as we reached the cottage we felt that we were in a different world. Very serene and peaceful...
We loved staying at the Secret Cottage. It's a beautiful home with all the amenities, good interiors, a lovely garden and great views of the surrounding mountains. And it overlooks a river!
The hosts stay in the next cottage and were very warm and hospitable people. The home cooked meals were enjoyable.
Thanks to the hosts, we had the chance to visit an apple orchard, view the snow capped mountains and spend time with the locals. This was the highlight of our Himachal experience!
I'd definitely recommend the Secret Cottage!

“Serenity ”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We visited with friends for five nights towards the end of April, the cottage is new, large and very well appointed it carries all the creature comforts for an enjoyable vacation. The location just off the highway in Bandrol is superb, a stones throw away from Naggar and Kullu with stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
Loved the stone exterior and all wood flooring in the cottage. Also an ideal getaway as you are not in the hustle and bustle of the two major towns of Kullu and Manali but both are very accessible for food and recreation.

“Fantastic cottage for our family spectacular views and experience”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

Our first family (children aged 5,8,11) trip to India surpassed our expectations! This cottage was to European standards but was next to a local residence so you feel you have a genuine experience. From the cottage we had great trips to the Buddhist monastery,
The Owners orchard in the Hills, shopping for scarves in Kullu and the Hindu temple and hustle and bustle in Manali were all highlights but the great cultural experience and spectacular views are the real secret!

I'd highly recommend this cottage - don't forget some warm clothes as well as your summer ones!
