“We visited the place in December, right after the season's first snowfall. For us beach-dwellers, they offered the best possible break from the cold with heaters and warm blankets. A warm and cozy abode in the heart of the quiet village of Naggar, right next to the castle (a steep climb away). The room is very thoughtfully set up, with breathtaking views all around. We actually shared the living space of the host! And Komal was a great host indeed!! She helped us settle down with a quick but helpful introduction to the house, gave some wonderful tips for cafes and sightseeing and cooked us our yummy breakfast. The weather was too cold for us to use the windows and platforms in the room. But another visit in the warmer season will totally be worth it!!!”

“This holiday turned out so much better than my family & I planned, and we’ve all got big smiles on our faces as we write this review :-) Communication-wise, Ashima & Scott were very responsive, both before & during our stay, patiently answered our many questions with tremendous detail The place itself is gorgeous, the location is unreal, with the house nestled in the midst of apple orchards, surrounded by snow capped peaks and clouds! Be warned though - the 40-minute trek up from Vashist is not for the faint of heart, but the spectacular views & the serenity of it all - away from the touristy hustle/bustle - makes it all worth it. And we’ve definitely come out fitter from it :-) Every morning we’d open up the windows to get our daily dose of mountains freshly dusted with snow! The house is quite quaint, and tastefully done up, with a lot of modern amenities including a hot water connection to the kitchen - which is quite a boon when washing dishes during the early winter that set in. Scott was uber helpful with treks that we could undertake, even drawing us detailed maps & fixing us up with a local guide which worked out quite well. In many other areas, he provided useful advise & was helpful too! One of the highlights of the trip were the 3 dogs - Pasta, Diju & Mr. Mo - who kept us company both at the house, and during some of our arduous treks - which to them appeared to be a piece of cake! Tips : — The golden apples are the best, try them with a dash of salt & chilli powder for that extra oomph. — The German Bakery & the provision store, both near Vashist temple, are great places to load up on pastries/coffee & daily groceries respectively.”

“Himalayan Woodpecker -- A land in paradise. I was having a lot of expectations after I booked it, because of the reviews as nothing can be so close to perfect, right! But this damn stay is. This has been the perfect abode I could have ever asked for. I am so grateful to Rajendra and his family for such an unexpected welcome and pampering all through out my stay. Rajendra's wife is an amazing cook, she cook'ed the best of chicken and paneer I could have ever asked for amidst the shivering -1 degree cold. Rajendra's father was very gracious to help us with the fireplace. He watched us coming in and waited for the moment to ask for tea, and I felt like no less than home away from home. I can't rate the experience I had. His gesture is priceless. If you are looking for a break from the city life, and want to sit in the balcony under the shimmering sun, surrounded by ice capped mountains, listening to the rushing beas and the musing chirps of unknown beautiful birds, please make your self lucky to get a reservation at his place. You ll damn not regret. P.S. Month of Visit - March”
