Iam chandramouli living in bangalore. Myself and my wife stayed in Bob's place in mid of february 2012 as a part of our honeymoon trip. It was a pleasant surprise for us when we reached there. From the outside it wasn't looking that great, but as we passed the main gate, we started liking the place, the ambience of the place was comforting, the interiors, the furnishing and the entire plan of that place. The dining area is simple and some articles u find there are hand crafted. The cottage was built on the slope of a hill side so it has ups and downs. The view outside is something different. I would like to keep gazing at the mountains outside our place. The cottage, every part of it is crafted with a enough attention to details. The wash rooms are clean and dry. I liked the “lounge” area. There were good collection of books( novels by jeffrey archer..) and magazines. I would suggest you to spend sometime in the lounge. The open space outside the “lounge” area gives a amazing view of the mountains. There was absolute silence on the road outside bob's place. The food and welcoming nature of the people who took care of us during our stay, made a lot of difference. The quality of the food was excellent. The menu was simple, but the food was very tasty. Kishanji is a wonderful cook and a welcoming host. We went for long walks after our break fast. “Kishanji and co” served us lunch as late as 3:30 in the afternoon because of our day long walk. Mukteshwar is nearby, it would be a delight if you go by walk and return. we savored our stay in bob's place. Its an ideal place for nature lovers, trekkers and especially for those who wants to rejuvenate themselves. Even if you don't wish to roam around at all during your stay, Bob's place is the place. Regarding some tips, from kathgodm station cab costs 1000 bucks to reach Bob's place, I would suggest you can get a share cab, it will cost you 100 bucks per person. While leaving bob's place, I left my camera charger in their cottage, I informed kishanji and he sent it to me promptly. I found it as a valuable gesture from their part to serve. Near to bob's place, there is a walking trail that goes down hill don't miss it. While walking have a check on the sound around u'll find good number of birds colorful and chirping. Choose the time of your visit. The price for the stay including the food is worth.
