Wooden cottage is an amazing place to stay. Its cozy and located on a picturesqe property. Staff is ok. My pet dog had a blast staying there. The porch outside each cootage offered the solitude we were seeking from this trip. You can go boating also if you get bored of watching cable inside.

When we arrived, a typical Victorian mansion greeted us with its long driveway which gave way to a beautiful lawn with geese and a 1950’s ‘Hillman’ on the porch. It really did feel like we were back... More

The food was mediocre. The breakfast which is included in the package was quite disappointing with very limited spread. Overall its a nice place to spend a short... More

The villa is a really heritage building which is more than 170 years old and the inside is maintained the same way. There are 9 rooms out of which 5 are inside the old villa and... More

An amazing place to stay. The moment we (my wife and I) entered the property it bought the tester year era in front of us. The look of the property, the wooden cottages, the vintage car, the emblem at the entrance takes you to the old world in an instant. As you enter the reception, friendly and courteous Karthik there... More
