The place is exactly as shown in pics and the facility is at very good location. The best part about the property are the Hosts and Services. Humble, Gentle, Professional are easy word to describe but the real experience is beyond words. Highly recommended for group who wants to stay together, November seems to be the best time to visit if you are with kids.

Stayed for 1 night at the mountain trail resort, Manali retreat house. It was exactly the perfect place we needed to celebrate my friend's birthday. The owner and staff were very friendly and welcoming.
Loved the place

Stayed with family and friends at Retreat cottages log hut region from 10th to 15th June 2019. Loved the place and stay. A very well kept and clean place, no disturbances from the crowd. Owners take keen interest for the comfort of the guests. Chhotu and his team take good care of the cooking and cleaning.
Kids loved the place as lot of space for them to play.
All the attractions of Manali like Hidamba temple, Mall Road, club house, Old Manali are within walking distance, the walk down to the Mall Road through the forest is awesome.
Would love to stay again.
Best Cottages in Manali
on Apr 23, 2019
I stayed in Retreat Cottages in April 2019 and the stay was simply amazing. I wanted to get out from Delhi busy crowd and find solace on Hills. I wanted to stay in a fully equipped hotel/Cottage which is not very far from the city center yet is very peaceful and has hill view. Overall my rating of this place will be 5+ and probably I will say its the best stay in Manali. I will highly recommend the place to my friends and family and will definitely stay in this place every time i visit Manali either alone or with friends/family.
This was my 5th or 6th Manali trip and I found Retreat Cottages after a detailed research of Manali hotels and resorts. Retreat Cottages exceeded all expectations.
Sunil Ji at the cottages made sure that my stay is comfortable in every manner. Even before reaching the place he was kind to follow up on my arrival time, made sure to take any special instructions and sent a car to pick me up at the bus station. Driver sent was polite and with good driving style. I requested lunch after reaching the place and found that food quality was amazing. Taxi can be arranged on request to drop you at Bus stop/airport or sight seeing without any hassle.
About the property:
The bungalow/cottage is well situated only 2 kms from Mall road in a peaceful setting and one can take auto or simply walk for 15 mins and reach the city center. Every cottage is an independent entity with its own living room (with fire place), dining section, well equipped kitchen, a nice garden and bed rooms (with fire place). Garden also has provision for BBQ and may be arranged on request. All the rooms are Hill/Mountain facing overlooking very beautiful , scenic landscape. I spent most of my time in the garden reading books and sketching . The place is also smoke friendly. It was an amazing experience. In my opinion the property is as comfortable and cozy as one can think of with no one to disturb you at the same time with very attentive staff in mid of an amazing landscape.
All the very best to Sunil Ji and the staff and hope to visit the cottage soon in monsoon time.

A really good place for families and groups to spend their holidays here as the place was beautiful and scenic with alot of privacy and excellent service of the staff especially Sunil ji who was very helpful anytime of the day .. I would recommend this place to each and everyone traveling to manali.. the place is close by to the market. The staff is always at the location to help if needed.. the cottages are very well maintained and are in a very good condition.. there was not even a single thing we could complain about.. thanks to Sunil ji and his staff.. I would rate my stay at the retreat cottages a 10/10.
