“Charming place in a tiny village on the way to Mukteshwar”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

This is a small place in a tiny village called Nathuakhan , a little between Ramgarh and Mukteshwar so to say, about 2-3 hours from Nainital. Its a charming little retreat facing the Kumaoni mountains and on clear days you can see some snow-capped peaks sitting on your porch and balcony.

Rooms are quaint, comfortably furnished with good bathrooms and they either have a shared sit-out or a private terrace. There is an English feel to the whole place with trellis, creepers and flowers all around but then Indian-ness is retained in the warm staff and a little stone alcove housing a bunch of Idols ;). There's a nice lounge on the 1st floor with its own deck overlooking the mountains but the Staff seemed reluctant to keep it open for just 1 or 2 families. Only when someone rents the whole place is this place usually used, they said. We felt odd but didn't mind that drinks and snacks were served right outside our rooms and they kept the tasty dinner piping hot for us even though it was past midnight when we finished our little party of sorts. One of the staff even minded the baby while we went up to their Dining cottage.

Food is good, made to order most of the times and Staff goes out of the way to procure you something which they may not have planned for like Country chicken for lunch or a bottle of Soda after sunset(when shops close due to lurking leopards in the region!).

One can even drive down here from Delhi in a little over 7-8hours we hear. Visit this when in the mood to just unwind, chill and relax with no sightseeing agenda to boast of.

A great place to relax and feel the nature at it's awe somest !! Normally choose this time to holiday in this region which is rightly known as the fruit basket of kumaon...... it's plums , peaches all around in full bloom .The place was full of trees with fruits in over load with nice flowers all over (attaching pix) .

Cottages are nicely furnished with tea/coffee maker and loos are neat. Mind it, for the
TV addicts, no no don't get dissappointed.... there is a separate lounge with a 29" one with
dish connection and a DVD player (you could carry your own collection).

If you are fond of liquid intakes in the evening , there is another lounge with a deck where
you could sip and chat ..... very cosy and comfy. Panneer/veg pakoras would go well and you need to carry your own the mls/ltrs :)

Lot of treks/trails all around and a TT table too. In case you wish too laze around with your
music/books , couple of hammocks around too.

Food is very palatable with the right amound of spices and children can hog without a fuss....just need to adhere to the timings (all buffets). The lunches are normally veggie with
dinner being n-veg. Shepherd's pie served as part of continental dinner was most memorable as were the non-veg curries and veg items (bhindi pakoras and arbi cutlets were something pleasantly new for us ....). The dining area is a very cosy and cute little place to assemble and chat/bond.

Go for it guys...... i would definately love to re-visit.

Happy escapades !

Bob's Place is a super small homestay kind of resort, very tastefully designed to blend into the mountains. It has great views of the Uttarakhand mountains, is in a pretty secluded spot despite being on one of the main roads and is close to spots like Mukteshwar, Sitla and Ramgrah. Staff is very hospitable and accommodating. Food could do with some improvement but its not a no-go.
Book directly with Bob to avoid the ridculously high mark-up that WelcomHeritage charges.

We stayed for 2 nights at the bob's place, we liked the location , the rooms had a good view. However the way they managed the kitchen and food services was absolutely disappointing. The breakfast went well beyond 9.30 am the lunch around 2.00 and dinner beyond 21.00hrs. We had a tough time to manage with young kids who usually eat all meals alteast any hour early. It was a great disappointment because the food taste was below average. There were just not able to time themselves with anything. Well we were happy to check out. The place belongs to bob anand.. and he was not around so maybe it was bad.

We moved to sitla estate about 7 kms from here and it was a much better place to stay.

There is a prominent notice in the dining area specifyingmeal timngs.B'fast 9am to 10.30am Lunch1.30pmto3pm and dinner from 8.30pm to 10pm. we feel the comment is totally unwaranted as the meals were served within the specified period. The kitchen staff was probably not made aware of the early meal timings for the kids.we have a lot of kids with parents and always cater to not only their timings but also to their special dietry needs.

2 hrs from katgohdam bob's place is 9 room resort on the side of the kumaon hills in a place called nathuakhan. Every room in the resort has a stunning 180 degree view of the snow capped Himalayas. For us from Bombay that itself made the 4 days in the mountains special. Bob's place run by Punam and Bob, is cozy, well maintained,the food is great every day. The Omlettes in the morning are to die for!! Don't miss the lounge. With the fireplace going it makes for a cozy place for an evening drink or a cuddle up with your favourite thriller.

There are numerous walks you can do, through the forests, the little villages and don't forget to talk to some of the villagers. We also drove to Mukteshwar not so much for the temple as for the atmosphere of the little town. A little place there sells world class chocolates. We bought kgs of those to carry back to Bombay. No such luck. They were over well before that.


My family and I are thrilled we went to Bob's place. Thanks Bob and Punam and the team there for a wonderful holiday.
