I had been looking forward to stay in this place since long. Particularly because of the reviews I have seen here in TripAdvisor which I follow whenever I do travel. The first impression as most others have mentioned here was not good for me. The cottage appeared too old. But when we stepped inside, I felt better. We occupied a... More

Rukma and her efficient team made sure we were comfortable, well fed and at home in their beautiful cottage. We stayed six nights and toured Meghalaya with good advise from Rukma and a picnic brunch packed to perfection. My family loved coming back to the cozy warm room every evening after a long and tiring, but fun day discovering Meghalaya.... More

Truly a fantastic experience. We stayed here for 9 days. Rukma is a fountain of information. If you need anything extra just check with the staff, you should be able to get them easily. The Cottage is an old Assamese cottage with a large number of rooms and attach bathrooms. The cottage is enclosed in a fantastic garden. The antique... More
