“This place makes you enjoy what we have forgotten- the simple pleasures of life - Awesome experience!”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed there for three nights in the month of January. We are two couples with four children in the range of 6 to 10 years. The place was enjoyed equally by kids and adults. Perfect location and setting, beautiful surroundings and luxurious stay. the rooms are neat, clean well appointed and most importantly, equipped to deal with the cold weather. The food was simple, home cooked and delicious. The cook is a very kind lady who works at a lightening speed with a smile on her face. While she is not cooking, she is busy playing hide and seek with the kiddos. We loved the biryanis (Chicken, mutton and veg), barbecue snacks for dinner and assorted paranthas, poha and upma for breakfast. The best part- hot and spicy maggi with extra green chillies!!!! (a must have). The caretaker Dilshad and another boy Shahrukh were no less- always ready to help and on their toes.

The best part about the place is the bonfire , barbecue and the clearest sky we have ever seen. One can easily identify all the constellations possible.

Overall it was a great experience and we would love to go back but for a longer stay this time.

“Excellent Place to stay and unwind”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was one of my best vacations. What made it extremely memorable is this nice cottage, cozy rooms, clean and hygienic bathroom, awesome home made food that you want. Not to forget the host (our cook and the caretaker) they did every possible thing one could think of to make us comfortable and happy.

When I did the booking, I had that fear in me howz it gona be. Is it gona be anything like what i see in the pics. But trust me the surprise was that the place looks even beautiful than what it is seen in the pics.. A spectacualr place to spend time with family. Free from the rushes of Shimla, but at the same time very close to shimla. After the whole day of sightseeing in shimla and near by towns, the BBQ at the cottage kept us awake till the dawn. Good and friendly service. Clean rooms and a very sweet owner who guided us on how we can make our stay at Shimla the best. I am happy atleast for Shimla I don't have to search for another holiday deal..!!

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Tranquility truly lives up to its name. Far from the madding crowd, a home in the hills, picture windows all around and surrounded by complete green mountains.
The place us rustic and has absolutely stunning views. The staff goes out of the way to please you and make you feel at home. Great food.

As the name suggests it is tranquility in the himalayas. The place is very nice and cozy and feels like home, and the view from the place is beautiful. The place is secluded and very calm. The caretaker Naushad is very helpful and friendly. YOu will be surprised with the delicious home cooked food, do try her kari and chicken curry, we all loved it. The evenings are great with bonfire, and yes you have to try the barbecue, we all are non veg lovers but we loved the veggies more in barbecue, yummy!! The owner Arati ensured that the arrangements are done before we arrived and followed up to check. Overall it was a great experience and we loved our stay, much much much better than resorts!! Will visit again for sure!

“Perfect place to unwind ,”

One of the best places to unwind, super location , awesome views of the mountains. Had visited with kids and one more family with kids. All of them loved the place, the rooms, the view
The home cooked food by Veena was awesome and the service provided by Naushad is just too good. Whatever you want is made available to you. The barbecue was one of the best ever had.
Perfect for people who want to spend their holidays at their own speed.
I would have given five stars but have not done so as the experience with the local cab service was a dampener, not in terms of service or the quality of drivers sent but the mere fact that the money charged was completely different than what was communicated before we landed there. Once you are at their mercy to roam around, the rates changed, no negotiations entertained . Hopefully the owners of the property can speak to the local union and request that these tactics are not used

Hi Rajiv, Thanks for your visit. So glad you had a relaxed holiday in our home.
However I would just like to emphasize, that we have NOTHING TO DO with the taxi service. We only do this as a FREE COURTESY to help our guests, the rest is between you and the taxi people thereafter.
Keeping in mind the fact that you would have given us a 5 star review were it not for the taxi experience, we feel therefore, that we have been penalized for no fault of ours, except that we tried to go the extra mile to be helpful!!?? :((
Hope to see you again on your next visit. Kind regards
