First time stayed at any cottage but was pleasantly surprised by the professional service, well maintained cottages and good location. Stayed there for 4 days with group of friends and enjoyed every bit of it !! 5 Star stay at reasonable rates.

The cottages were lovely and were in a gorgeous location. They were clean, cosy and the beds extremely comfortable. Very helpful staff, ready to do the dishes and clean the rooms spotlessly. We went somewhere different every day.The only down-side was having to leave.A truly memorable, restful and relaxing holiday. Cannot wait to stay there again!

Nice Experience - Unforgettable Memories. I stayed here with my wife for 5 days. There are two cottages of Owner in Manali. Log Hut in Manali in town and second in Aleo. We stayed in Aleo studio apartment. Which is very beautiful. I appreciate the living comfort, feeling of luxury, beauty of nature, service and the big thing "Behaviour of Raj and Chuki mahant" because of that we feel it like home. They cared every thing for us, for our need. It was unforgettable trip. I searched this cottage through trip Adviser only, I found every comment very positive on Trip Adviser for this cottage. After that I searched more about cottage and about owner on Google, And I found very interesting thing about them. I read a book "Born in Lahasa" and it was my great luck I personally meet with three character of this book too :) . Specially the Author of this book. Who is really a great personality. I am very thankful of Owner which are very polite and humble couple. And want to say them Raj and chuki. Your cottage is very beautiful and very comfortable, near to nature. :)..... but biggest thing you are really lovely couple.

We booked our accomodation seeking reviews of tripadvisor and checking the website of the owner Chukki Mahant.The owner are nice couple and having two properties, one near the Log Huts and other one at Aleo.The log huts are near the town having very good surroundings and peaceful.The Aleo one are more secluded and a little far from the maddening crowd of the Manali Town.First of all as per the location wise its just simply perfect.Log huts area is the VIP area of Manali, not very far from crowd and though near to all the amenities of Manali. We stayed at the Log Huts property for 2 nights in a 3 bedrooms with attached bathrooms having hot and cold water, a wide living area, dining and a fully equipped kitchen having refrigerator and even microwave and all the utencils.At the moment we stepped into the premises of the RetreatCottages, we were awe struck.The cottages was very neatly done and very well maintained.We were two couple with young children and enjoyed the cottages to the maximum.We cooked our own food in the kitchen and the attendent would come and clean all the utencils and all.Over all it was the best experience we ever had.The stay of ours was simply unimmaginably wonderful, kudos the Retreat Cottages.
