Strategically situated near the century old golf course, an hour from Shimla and an hour from the Satluj River and hot springs are the Jacaranda cottages set among an English garden and fruit tree orchards. The city lights of Shimla sparkle beyond in the distance, one can experience the coolness and verdant hills as one walk through the lush forests accompanied by the eternal sound of the birds.The cold winter is retreating... spring is approaching... You are welcome to taste the freshness for yourself...

The place is located well away from all the noise and that is a great positive. The best part of the stay are the lovely views of the Shimla Valley. The property itself is very well maintained and has a lovely feel to it. Luckily we were the only guests during our entire stay. The dining area provides a lovely view of the valley and there are lots of flowery plants around. Food was always freshly prepared and well made. The staff are courteous and well behaved.

I stayed here for two nights in April. It's a very beautiful cottage with a beautiful garden around it, and pastures below. I loved the experience very much. Rita Ma'am and Kedar Singh were very hospitable. I also loved their dog, who seemed very happy and friendly. You'll have a great experience here, away from the crowd, in the lap of nature.

Had the most amazing time staying here for 5 nights with my wife (we liked it so much we extended our trip by a night). The cottages are beautiful and super comfortable and clean. The staff, especially Kedar and Deepak, are extremely polite and courteous and ensure you feel right at home. The food is very tasty and homely and we had all our meals by the fire place in the outdoors. The views too are breathtaking. All in all a place not to be missed, 10/10. Also, shows that the owner (Rita Sawhney) has great taste. Can't wait for our next visit.

From the time you check-in to the time you check -out - it's like homecoming and that sudden pain of separation. There is no " welcome back Mr x , can we use your credit card for just the guarantee and "Monika will escort you to your room" overload. Instead there's a mother , a friend who is anxious about your arrival, staff that are happy to see you and genuine smiles from a happy family. The estate itself is like the homestead of the yesteryears; idyllic views of the valley, blooms in all possible shades and hues and bric a brac casually strewn around that gives the feeling that you checked in at home . Rita is a fantastic hostess - reminds me of Ms Olga Dcruz at Wiston cottage , DGH Kalimpong - tough and gentle love on a metric balancing scale. However the best part is they are pet friendly and with Scout , our hyper Siberian Husky we were a lil concerned - but the Manager KD Singh and his team managed everything seamlessly. Lastly- the home cooked food!!! No fancy French cuisine but really tasty , wholesome portions of all of my favourite things. Rita is blessed to have such a versatile chef! I recommend everyone of my friends to get a feel of home , away from home. Our only concern - were we the model guests? Let Rita decide!

Rita says that she lost her heart, at once to Scout, then to Misha, shy at the start, but she blossomed like a flower and regaled us with my favourite song from Chris Martin, Fix it! Mithu... the dimpled gorgeous mother, brimming with love, and so proud of her lovely daughter, trying not to show it... And last but not least the debonair Mr Das, expressing little, but those eyes, expressing a lot. Were you the ideal guests... you were guests when you arrived, but left like a family!!!
