Kaafal Cottage

Majkhali, Ranikhet, Uttarakhand

Kaafal cottage, overlooking Majkhali in Ranikhet, provides you the ideal getaway. Your home away from home, it provides a glimpse into the Kumaoni culture. From the ‘aipan’ on the steps to the brass and copper vessels used in traditional Kumaoni homes, it gives you an experience of the Kumaoni way of life.

Kaafal cottage derives its name from the Bayberry trees surrounding it. The trees bear the raspberry-like fruits in April-May. Typically, the ripe berries are eaten mixed with a little rock salt. A forest of Baanj (Oak), Chir (Pine) and Deodar (Cedar) trees overlooks the cottage and provides a serene haven for leisurely strolls.

While Kaafal cottage provides you every facility for a comfortable stay, it is not your regular starred resort. Our philosophy is different- we do not believe in isolated tourism. We believe when you visit a place, you should carry back some spirit of the place.

Kaafal Cottage of Ranikhet is a very nice hotel with super comfortable rooms and amazing services. The food was also very tasty as it felt like home. The service was fast and the hotel staff was also soft-spoken. I have a good time staying in the hotel.

Got a chance to stay here in Kaafal Cottage , the morning view can not be expressed in words , you can view the ranges of Himalayan Mountains directly from your window , peaceful place . During the night hours we heared some roaring sound , seems the big cat was nearby the Hotel. Awesome Stay, the Hotel was neat and clean.
