I was looking get some quiet time off with my wife and two children when I happened across Bob’s Place in Nathuakhan. We booked directly with the owner who was exceedingly charming and very helpful in telling us how to get there and what to expect.
We spent a wonderful few days nestled high up in the hills, with a panoramic view of the Greater Himalayan range, which made this the perfect getaway for us. The beautiful Estate has lush fruit orchards, a newly renovated bungalow and dense oak and pine forest cover. The novelty of picking and eating fresh fruit directly from the tree was wonderful for the children.
In, and from the Estate, there is something for every nature lover. Quite repose, gentle rambles in nearby forests or through village hamlets and for the more adventurous there are some wonderful short trekking routs.
The rooms are very well maintained and have a beautiful old world charm. In spite of the seemingly rustic aura, all basic amenities like attached modern bathrooms are taken care of. A wood fire bukhari kept us warm and cozy. A group of great cooks, conjures up a variety of Indian, continental and Chinese meals that one would least expect in place like this. What makes Bob’s Place truly unique though is the personalized service and care, from the members of staff.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Bob’s Place as your next getaway. It exceeded all our expectations.
