About the property:
Way back in the sixties, a young girl at a boarding school in Nainital, who had rosy cheeks and dreams in her eyes, would wistfully drool at the little cottages with sloping roofs and a fairy-tale ambience, while her school bus stopped for a routine 'strawberries and mulberries' break at Jeolikot. That little girl realized her dream in 1994 Her name is Bhuvan Kumari! The interiors were a dingy, dove-cotes like mess. You could be forgiven for thinking that gremlins and ghosts ruled the roost there. Friends and 'experts' advised her to demolish the whole structure and start afresh, but the lady wisely decided to rely on her instincts and intuition. She did not disturb the outer shell-that original 'ivy covered cottage' of her dreams, but completely revamped the interiors as her heart dictated. Originally established as a health resort, the Cottage was, till independence, run as a hotel by a Scottish lady and her daughter.Apart from savoring, experiencing and exploring the plentiful attractions of the immediate surroundings, you could use THE COTTAGE as a base-camp to visit several areas of the Kumaon Himalayas.For everything there is a season…the sylvan serenity and THE COTTAGE await your holiday.
