We HeART It: Artists, There's A Retreat Cottage In Lonavala That's Beyond Gorgeous And You Need To Bookmark It


    Art and mind-block goes hand in hand. And it may take months to pen something down, paint something on a canvas, or create something new. But thank goodness for retreat cottages that make life easier and accelerate thought processes for artists. We stumbled upon a gorgeous site in Lonavala, and it is beyond perf for every seeker. Read on to know why. 

    What Makes It Awesome

    Get ready to be in awe when you enter Artist's Adventure Cottage In Lonavala. They've got a brick wall with fairy lights and antique mirrors adorning it, and a gramophone in one corner to accentuate the artsy feel of the place. The other corner has an easel stand with nature paintings that change every fortnight. And if that wasn't enough to bowl us over, the place won our hearts with an in-built tree, without leaves, but with pretty Persian lamps hanging from the branches. It decorates one corner of the bed and makes it look like a room right out of Pinterest. We also love the fact that the mosquito net hanging on the ceiling unfolds to create the look of a four-poster bed.

    Every inch of the space is so tastefully done up that you wouldn't want to vacate the place ever once you check-in. There's an attached washroom with all the basic facilities, and there's an elegant sofa in the room for you to curl up and catch a show or two on Netflix as well. The house has an outdoor seating arrangement that's perfect for grabbing the classic chai-pakoda combo.

    For INR 4,500 a night, this one's a perfect place for the artist in you to give wings to your thoughts. Located in a jungle, but not too far away from the concrete, the cottage has a decent accessibility to the Duke's nose and well as a nearby mall. It accommodates three people, and is a perfect getaway for the soon approaching monsoons.


    The property has its own parking space too, so in case you're taking your car, you don't need to worry about where to park it. And major attractions, plus dhabas and restaurants are just a car ride away.
