Machus Cottage is a beautiful property located on the Kathgodam - Almora road, near Mauna Village. It is easily accessible by road and can be reached by Bus, train or car. Trains run until Kathgodam and from there you can take a taxi that will drop you to this cottage. The journey takes about 2.5 hrs from Kathgodam to reach here and crosses many beautiful scenic villages.
This property is good for people who are looking to spend some time away from the city life. Located at a decent height, one can view the Himalayas and Almora from here. The view of the entire valley that you can get to see from here is breathtaking, and if you are lucky you might be able to see the Naina devi range too from here.
This property is good for Corporate off-site meetings, small family outing, or even a small group of friends. This property has 5 rooms, a fully functional kitchen and a big open garden and front lawn to sit and enjoy your cup of tea overlooking the views of the valley.
Highly recommend this location, if you would like to stay closer to nature and get up looking at one of the best views that you will ever get anywhere else.
The cottage adds on to the beauty of the hills , the wooden interior so beautifully built that will give you complete vintage feels. The people , the food everything is bang on.
Legit mean it when I say it.
This place is an absolute Heaven.
I’ll bring it down to points.
As a regular traveler, I believe these are the most appealing aspects I found about the cottage.
1. WAKE UP TO A VIEW.
In machus’ rooms, you wake up to see a view to die for. Your eyes look through a wide window that opens up to the mountains and the view of the Himalayas, which is as heavenly as it gets, every single morning!
The food prepared in the cottage is pretty delicious, and gives you a warm-homely vibe, which becomes necessary for me, as a regular traveler.
The rooms are luxurious, warm, BIG, with clean, healthy and modern washrooms that have everything you need. Every room has its own personal FIREPLACE has well.
4. The Cottage!
The cottage itself is one of the big factors that got me to travel to this beautiful place. It’s beautiful when you look at it from the outside, and all the more beautiful when you walk in!
Highly recommended if you’re anywhere around Uttarakhand and traveling via Mauna.
Machu’s cottage in Mauna, Uttarakhand, is paradise for those looking for a break from the hustle bustle of cities without compromising on the homely feeling. It is a tastefully designed cottage with 5 spacious bedrooms and a view that words fail to describe. The patio is so picturesque that it almost gets difficult to decide whether you should sit out or go in. During my 3-day stay, I had the pleasure of waking up to the view of Nanda Devi peak every day.
Machu’s offers you a fully functional kitchen which is at your disposal. They also have a cook, who prepares delicious North Indian food. Recommended!!
A fantastic property and an ideal cottage on the hill. With views of the snowy Himalayas from your bed, a garden full of flowers, ample seating area to soak the winter sun, beautiful forest trails to spend the day in, meadows to roll around - there's nothing more you need for a relaxed holiday. Not just that, the place is managed efficiently by a warm staff that keeps you engaged in great conversations and makes sure you have the best of 5-star amenities in a home-like setup. Best place to calm frayed nerves and recharge.
