Matheran is avoidable unless you love visiting Juhu Chowpatty on a Sunday. But. There's something about the place, beyond the chaotic main market, the pestering touts, the commercial Missal Pav and the overburdened stallion army. And those are the quaint bungalows on muddy inclines, stuck...More

I'll start with the conclusion so you can avoid the long ranting : No value for money if you are putting hard earned money. For a 2 day stay here, my out of pocket cost was about Rs 20,000 while the I had various issues....More

We had been here for a week 2010, when it was still under Neemrana. The loveliest place, completely solar-electricity based, eco-friendly in every sense with small little thoughtful note for guests, lovely vintage furniture and furnishing and the most amazing hospitality. We loved the breakfast...More

Was a hasty last-minute plan for us to book a stay here and hop on to a cab to reach Matheran. And we could not have taken a better getaway decision! The property is far away from the market area and well hidden from the...More

About
Description
The paths once cleared by the British in the forests of Matheran, making it the last British hill station have acquired a new identity as the place where Bombay’s movers and shakers which include filmstars More and businessmen come to spend a few quiet and peaceful days.Perched atop the Sahyadri ranges, Matheran is Asia’s only pedestrian hill resort. Chug up in a toy train, trot, or arrive in a palanquin, past gigantic mansions built by the British, the Parsis, and the Bohras. The Verandah in the Forest was the second house to be built on the isolated Western Ghats, by Captain Barr. Now, with every facility in place, it is reputed to be second to none! Indeed, the nobility of the proportions of The Verandah bring civilizational honour to the Sahyadri ranges. Lounge like never before in this verandah of your dreams. Read under the highest domestic ceiling you would have known in the salon – 12 metres/35 feet high. Stroll down to Charlotte Lake. Or take longer walks with a picnic basket. Relish the local cuisines. Heave your chest, muscle your calves, take all the oxygen back in your lungs. Link your planet with your own two feet.Find space for more space in your mind. Or lose yourself to find yourself anew.Long after you return, you will wonder who would have dared to sprawl out such a tree-home space in such spell-binding wilderness? Less
