Superb stay it was in Matheran, stayed for two nights with family. It was a weekend stay and we all had fun staying here. Good food, nice service. Staffs were polite and friendly, prompt to the call. Room was spacious and clean with good view of the swimming pool, swimming pool was big and well-maintained. Highly recommended for all.

Totally blown away by the stay we have had here. Superb staff and nice location. Service was excellent. Every staff member was so polite. We have been to Matheran in may 2014 and we all had fun. There was swimming pool as well. Highly recommended for all and everyone.

During the summer season May 2014, we stayed at Vakratunda Cottage, Matheran. That was a home stay and very economical as compared to hotels in Matheran. It is between Aman Lodge and Matheran station. Appearance of the cottage is not so good but the the owner Shri Rane is very co-operative and provided good service. The quality of food served by him was excellent. He has guided me property regarding various points to see. He came to receive us near taxi stand. Overall stay was pleasant.

Matheran in Monsoon has its own beauty, this I had heard. This I experienced, when I was on the way to Dasturi from Neral Station on 13th of July 13. With scenic views of Lush green mountains and running water falls around the mountain, we reached Dasturi. From Dasturi to our destination was Matheran and that to Vakratund Cottage of Mr Rajan Rane. Although I have my well equipped lavish corporate Guest House at Matheran, however we decided to go to this cottage, with obvious reason for the usual warmth and homely atmosphere which we had experienced in our previous trip. We were received by them at Dasturi with usual warmth and charm. With 15 mins of walk we reached the cottage. There we started deciding where to go, in rain and what to see . Then the owner called us on his first floor mezzanine of his cottage. The floor has wide sliding windows which directly open to the valley. It was really a heavanic view. The whole back yard is surrounded by lush green mountain. Various water falls coming from the mountain falling to the valley was clearly visible. Amazing scene was when we saw the formation of fog in the deep valley moving up, changing the back drop scene every moment. In the trip of three days we strolled to some scenic spots as usually people do, however, no scenic spot we found can be compared to the back yard scene of the cottage. We often sat at the mezzanine, enjoying the backdrop.. This time we tried Non- Veg preparation by them. It was as delicious as Veg item we had tried in our previous visit. Even my wife learned some culinary art. This whole experience always ensures to visit to Vakratund cottage next time we go to Matheran.

Best Experience: This is our second trip to Vakratund Cottage, but first in Monsoon. However, enjoying the back yard scene of the Mountain and Valley is the best experience, we had in the trip. As we had enjoyed the Veg preparation in our first trip, this time we enjoyed the sumptuous non- veg preparation. This whole experience in the cottage ensures our return to the cottage in our next trip to Matheran.

Worst Experience: Nothing Particular
