Enchanting Secret Cottage in the Himalayas
“…The view from Secret Cottage is nothing short of breathtaking. Each morning brought a new perspective of the majestic Himalayas, leaving us in awe of nature's grandeur. Despite being located on the main road, the tranquility that enveloped the house was surreal. It was a haven of peace, allowing us to truly disconnect and recharge. The caretakers were exemplary in their service, always available and attentive to our needs…”

"...It’s a very beautiful and a cozy cottage. If you plan to do a trip to the mountains I Highly recommend staying here. Manali, Kulu, Kasol, Solang, Naggar, Bijli Mahadev etc., is all within an hour to hour and a half’s distance. The staff is very sweet, kind and helpful. Everything you need is at a walkable distance from the cottage and yet it is so private and quaint. One of the best experiences. "

"...We stayed for 2 weeks at the Secret Cottage, and wish we could have stayed more. The cottage is beautifully constructed and surrounded by a small fruit orchard. We stayed in the cottage in spring so the property was covered with flowers. Our kids loved staying in the garden and chasing butterflies. We would have regular snack picnics all over the property. There is a lot of privacy, and lots of little trees to sit under with a book or a board game. About the interiors, they are cozy and looked after and very clean. We especially enjoyed the dining area with lovely views and a comfy dining table. "

“...To put it simply secret cottage is an awesome place and Deepak is a superb host. Great ambience: The sights, sounds and the smell from the fruit trees are a mega treat to our senses. Deepak has a deep knowledge of the vast valleys, magnificent mountains, and rippling rivers. Deepak is highly organized. This organization enhanced our HP experience thoroughly...”
