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.
