As you sit in front of the fireside enjoying a quiet evening with your loved ones or even alone with millions of fireflies for company, what you experience is sheer bliss.

Had a comfortable stay. 2 min walk from Igatpuri station. Big, airy, clean rooms & bathroom. Very thoughtfully designed & good quality furniture used. It is not a full fledged hotel so do not expect a reception or room service etc. But multiple local food options to order from. Try home cooked food suggested by the owners. Older people may have a problem as there is no lift in the building.
Hotel is located very near to railway station. Early checkin and late checkout is subject to availability of room. Rooms have a nice view of mountains.
Nice room with a beautiful Mountain View. Near to rail station and market place. They have a private secured parking. A nice breakfast was served. Wouldn't ask for more in the given price range.

Great place to be. Spacious clean rooms, nice view, polite staff, safe. There is some sound from the train station esp that long train horn..! The area around is simple.
