As the name says, its really hidden from city traffic and pollution. They offer excellent homely food and the rooms are really cozy. It is little far from the tourist places so you will have to travel a bit. But you can spend a whole day there, doing fishing and relaxing or reading your favorite novel.

Overpriced based on the amenities they have. Food options not that great especially for vegetarians. Place is clean and is good to throw your back on if you need a very decent place on the hill to stay. Cards Not accepted

Well kept and very warm staff. Good food. Loved the fish fry. Get yourself a lake facing room and you are all set. Kids enjoyed watching the geese, ducks and roosters around and about the place. Don't plan site-seeing when here, just enjoy the homestay by itself.

We stayed at this wonderful place last week.. Everything is great be it the rooms, view, surroundings, weather, food and activities for kids.. The barbeque and campfire arranged by the manager and staff was very good.. The pond in front of the rooms/dining area is a real plus for this place. One can easily relax and enjoy the nature around.... More

1) It was a very last minute plan, however we were accommodated by Alan, who also took a good initiative to help us out with transport contacts. 2) Pet Friendly resort. Our pup had the time of his life. It's easier if your dog is friendly with other dogs as the place has one of its own. 3) Navadeep, the... More
