Bob?s Place is just a little ahead of the village ?chowk? at Nathuakhan, and on the road that leads to Almora and Binsar. It has large red iron gates & a courteous staff to welcome you. We were offered a selection of rooms due to it being off-season. Bob?s Place has standalone cottages erected in a multi-level manner. The highest ones command a view of snow-clad peaks of the Himalayas. The lower ones have sit-out areas but the view gets diminished by the foliage. We chose one of the higher altitude rooms. It had a balcony which gave us breathtaking views and was especially delightful during sunrises and sunsets. The wooden cottage had a fireplace, a blanket and a heater. The food was prepared at the cottage and did not taste any different from what we eat at home. The ?poha? we had for breakfast was quite different though, and wonderfully so. It was made with ?khada garam masala?. People who have eaten the Indian-style meat can identify how good this would taste. The ?masala chai? was free-flowing too. Special mention of the chicken fry we got as our finale dinner. Do ask for it when you head to Bob?s Place. On our first night there, we were shivering and the fireplace in the room looked inviting. Soon after it was lit, we were sweating. We had covered ourselves with a quilt and the fire was proving too hot to handle! There are a number of walking trails nearby. The staff offered to guide us but we were not in a mood to move our limbs this holiday. There is a dart board and a carom board. Towards the lower cottages, there is a hammock to relax on. The staff is plentiful, courteous and ready to help with pretty much anything. We had a dedicated guy who was soft-spoken and told us quite a bit about the surrounding regions.Read More
