If you guys follow me on social media especially Facebook then you might know that I took a pledge to travel to Nainital and we finalized the trip as well. Well, this post is on the review of the property where we stayed at Mukteshwar, Nainital.
During our visit to Mukteshwar, we stayed at a boutique luxury homestay and the name of the property is One Partridge Hill. The drive from Delhi took us around eight hours to reach the property in which we took one breakfast and few washroom breaks. The way towards the property is a little confusing if you are traveling with the help of google maps, thus it is advisable to get the location details from the property itself.
The first look of the property to me was cozy, luxurious and near to nature. The owner of the property was also there during our stay. She explained that the property is created keeping the mother nature in mind. The property is equipped with rainwater harvesting system and solar panel system keeping the environment resources in mind. The property has been decorated with bird theme which is the specialty of the place and you can see many beautiful birds around. The property also has some strong house rules which they expect the guests should follow during the stay, which is mentioned below:
The property has 4 rooms for the guests and only one room has a television in it. We booked two rooms at the property, the one was an attic room and the other one below the same. The rooms were quite spacious with huge washrooms and we also had a private terrace because of the attic room. The back side of the property has forest area and a way towards an old temple. I would advise that if you are visiting this place and planning to trek the forest area, you should go in a group and in the day time. There are wild animals and dense forest area around the property. Here’s a detailed Vlog about our whole trip:
The property does not allow you to eat in the rooms but you can have your drinks and meals downstairs or in their garden area. The meals are included in the room tariff and you will get the ‘Ghar ka Khana’ from their kitchen. The first day, after we arrived, we had lunch in which we had yellow dal, kadhai paneer, chappati, mutton biriyani, mix veg raita, salad, gulab jamun. In dinner, we had garlic bread, cutlets, non-veg kabab, shahi tukda.
The nearby places to visit is the river which will take 20-25 min drive, Old Bangalow (created by British) which will take 10-15 mins walk and the old temple which will take 10 mins trekking. The place is situated with a beautiful view of the Almora city and we can also see the snow covered Himalaya chain of mountains from the balcony in a non-misty day. The crisp chilly air, the peaceful environment away from the city hassle, makes Mukteshwar and this property a must visit the place. But if you are not interested in following the above house rules, this might not be the right place for your stay as the property follows the rules quite strictly. I would recommend this place to those who love nature, bird watchers and love to spend their holiday in a peaceful atmosphere.
