If you are like us who wanted to spend some quality time with family, away from all the day-to-day running around, I would strongly recommend Saur Cottage at Kanatal.

This year we wanted to visit a place which is quiet, beautiful, and peaceful. And we found this wonderful place called Saur Cottage in Kanatal. This place was beyond what we had imagined it would be. We found no TV, facebook, emails, phones, or any of such distractions, as there is no connection from any of the networks (except for BSNL). If you truly want to find yourself, this is the place to visit.

Every day we woke-up with the birds chirping. The staff was ready to serve us hot Tea early in the morning. A delicious, healthy, and out of pan breakfast was served by 8:30. Every meal was freshly made with most of the local ingredients. We had the day for ourselves to meditate, take a walk into the nature, or quietly read a book. A guide was there with us all the time to visit the villages around.

The weather was lovely so we walked every day for hours together, picking-up the local fruit and berries on the way.

This place is photographers / artists paradise.

Saur Cottages is a good concept and still at a developing stage. Some areas still need fine-tuning. But it provides a very good option for a quiet, reflective holiday - when you essentially want to be with yourself and your very close ones, and away from the madding crowd. At the same time, you are also able to see (and also be part of) a kind of life, that otherwise in one's hectic, urban daily life, one can only nostalgically miss or yearn for - a slow, quiet life, where one is closer to the elements and the nature.

And you do all this in the comfortable belief that your material needs of staying away from home are well taken care of.

In a sense, you return from Saur Cottages with a recouped energy and sense of go-ahead.

If you wish is experience the old world charm visit , this place is a must visit. The weather was pleasant. It is a paradise for nature lovers and who wants to get away from the city noise. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Food is simple and the staff is very nice and helpful.

There is nothing much to do if your looking for some action and adventure.

Its a holiday which will make you feel rejuvenated after the relaxing stay.

Songs of nature, sound of silence is in abundance here... the rooms are spacious and are well designed to give you comfort and pleasure. Food is simple and hence great. The staff is young, educated, energetic and friendly - we never felt we are away from home. The view from the rooms are excellent. The place is advisable for those who want to get away from the noise of the city, to relax with the family, do some little trekking. It takes you away from your world to a new experience which can only be internalised - it offers you so many things that capturing it with lens is just not possible. I would definitely go again.

DueNorth Saur Cottage is probably 1930s building, now resorted to give a modern day comfort, yet generates a feeling of you staying in a century old building.

Located in a typical Himalayan Garhwali village, surrounded by scenic views of himalayan landscapes this is ideal getaway for those who looks for offbeat , nothing much to do weekend++ breaks.
