I had planned a trip to Mukteshwar earlier in July 2015 but due to heavy rains and cloud burst in Uttarakhand cancelled my booking at The Peace @ Himalayan Heights. But our stay at The Colonel's Cottage this time made me to strongly believe the saying "Whatever GOD does is for the Best". I'm glad that this time I chose...

After a long journey of about 10hrs, from Delhi, we(family of 3) reached "Colonel's Cottage". Mrs.Anita, the owner of the property was in touch with us, to guide us about the route, since this property is slightly away from mainstream Mukteshwar. Our entire tiredness was taken over by awe and joy, the moment we reached the property. The view is...

A family friend suggested that I stay at Colonels Cottage and I am so glad I agreed with their advice. It was such a beautiful experience. I stayed there for 3 nights. After spending 10 days all over the Kumaon region, this place felt like...

I visited Mukteshwar with my family in Oct 2016 and we stayed at Colonels Cottage run by Col. Anita Mishra. I really liked the stay. The room was comfortable and tastefully done up. The food was good. Most of all, the staff was great and they really looked after us during our stay. I highly recommend this place.

If you want get away from Delhi, ideal place for a weekend among nature. Being Independence Day the local school children did prabhat peri singing songs, this we miss in city life.

Colonel's Cottage is the perfect place for a quick weekend getaway from Delhi. Unlike some of the other more sterile or expensive estates or hotels you can find in the area, Colonel's Cottage has a very homey, welcoming feeling. My friend and I booked accommodation at Colonel's Cottage last minute for Independence Day and were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
While affording homely comforts like an ante-room attached to the main living space, carpeted flooring, electric blanket, hot-air blower, a well-appointed bathroom, a long balcony giving you an excellent view of the valley, ‘TheColonel’s Cottage’ has a lot of open space for you to bask in the bright sun, and in turn enjoy sitting around a bonfire in the late evening.A place that must be on the top of the list of the tourists to Mukteshwar is the location where the great Bard Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore spent a considerable time writing Geetanjali that bagged the Nobel Prize for literature. The place is just 12 km from The Colonel's Cottage, and it will be our pleasure and pride to take you down to visit the 'Writers' Bungalow', as it is called. ... more   less
