10, Nautical Mile Mountain Cottage is situated on the Ranikhet-Almora Highway, just beyond
the charming hill station of Ranikhet. It is close enough to nature and its wonders but yet, far
away from the maddening crowd. 
The cottage has been our labour of love and an undying passion.  It has been built as a home with love, care and a innate wish to pamper the senses. The woody feel of the cottage, fruit laden trees and the east facing large bay windows in every room make sure that it’s the rising sun and the chirping birds are the ones that will wake you up each morning. Dot on time; and you will awaken each morning refreshed, never wanting to miss this beautiful time.  Morning meditation is made easier by the breeze that always cleanses your soul. The birds provide the song. 

We have seen many travelers put their mobiles away once the valley and the snow peaks casts
their spell! Living under a blanket of stars is given a new meaning here. If you have nothing to
do and are sitting outside on a moonless night , just look up; the stars come into focus and
millions and millions of specks of wonder appear. Milky Way, shooting stars, constellations,
planets - it is a riot. And of course the occasional satellite that got mistaken as a UFO. 
It has luxurious and cozy rooms, an eclectic attic for the kids and young at heart and of course, a relaxed alcove for lounging - places that meet your desire of comfort and sophistication. We cater for comfort and warmth but have a strong focus on an ergonomic and sustainable living. To top it all, we promise to immerse you in a garden full of flowers- variety of roses, begonias, orchids, lily and seasonal flowers.... the accompanying birds, bees and butterflies are just a huge bonus!

Have your morning tea at the gazebo or the terrace and marvel at the play of the clouds in the valley below or breakfast at the dining table with a view to whet your appetite. We urge you to take long walks along deserted roads leading you to small villages or trek along mountain trails to catch another view of the nature in all its glory. However, what we always recommend our guests is to spend most of their time doing just one thing- Nothing! Just nothing....

For the traveler and explorer, there are a few things to do and see. The first is the 800 year old
Sun Temple of Katarmal- the only other Sun Temple after Konark. Also, hundreds of bells adorn the Jhula Devi Temple, dedicated to the Hindu goddess Durga. It is believed that once you have visited this temple and tied a bell; you will come back again. Fruit trees adorn the terraced orchards of Chaubatia Botanical Gardens, with a large collection of herbs and local plants for treating a variety of ailments. The connection with famous personalities is that Mahatma Gandhi is known to have stayed in a hut, Gandhi Kuti, in nearby Tarikhet village during the independence struggle.
